iOS 10.2 jailbreak could come via YaluX update
The creator of the iOS 10.1.x jailbreak YaluX has announced that he intends to update the tool, currently in beta, to add support for iOS 10.2. Luca Todesco tweeted that his solution for the instability of the early builds of his tool has tangentially allowed for compatibility with the most recent firmware, news which will no doubt delight many in the jailbreak community who are trapped on iOS 10.2, and who have been lamenting the death of the jailbreak on currently signed firmwares.
Before you click your heels and start popping corks, there is one major caveat to this piece of news: the support for iOS 10.2 will not extend to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Whilst this is disappointing for owners of those devices, there is a good reason for the lack of support. It seems that Todesco's 0-day vulnerability which he gave up to make the iOS 10.1.x jailbreak, a KPP bypass technique, does not work on the iP7(+) on iOS 10.2. This may be due to this model's superior hardware security measures.
