How to Jailbreak iOS 10
Yalu jailbreak is released by a popular hacker Luca Todesco. Although it is capable to jailbreak iOS 10, it is only limited to several models such as iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and iPad Pro. This is because Yalu Jailbreak is still in its beginning stage. Cydia Substrate is not working too because the developer has disabled it purposely. Furthermore, there are several well-known issues exist in this jailbreak. However, it is currently the one and only jailbreak for iOS 10 to 10.1.1. It has no harm to give it a try if you are keen on using cracked apps on iOS 10.
Step 1: You don’t have to go to step 2 if you are using iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 2 because Yalu Jailbreak does not work on these devices yet.
Step 2: Backup your device using iCloud or iTunes. Make sure you backup completely. This is because you can restore your iDevice in case anything unwanted happen.
Step 3: Go to yalu.qwertyoruiop.com to download Yalu Jailbreak IPA (mach_portal_yalu-b3.ipa). At the same page, download the latest Cydia Impactor too.
Step 4: Open the Cydia Impactor .dmg file (Impactor_0.9.37.dmg). Drag and drop it into the Applications folder. Launch it and a popup message “Impactor is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?” will appear. Click on Open.
Step 5: Connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer using a USB cable.
Step 6: Cydia Impactor will now recognize your iDevice. Check the drop down list and it should be there.
Step 7: Now drag and drop Yalu Jailbreak IPA file into Cydia Impactor.
Step 8: Enter your Apple ID and password.
Step 9: Go to Settings -> General -> Profiles & Device Management. Tap on the profile with your email address to trust the developer. Tap Trust and then Confirm. This is to allow the Yalu Jailbreak app to run on your iOS device.
Step 10: Go to your home screen and you should be able to see a new icon name “mach_portal”. Tap on it to launch it!
Step 11: Your device’s screen will turn white for approximately 15-20 seconds. Yalu is jailbreaking your iOS 10 device. Give it some time and the jailbreak will be completed perfectly! Your iOS device will reboot automatically.
Step 12: Once again go back to your home screen and you should be able to see the familiar brown color Cydia logo. That’s how to jailbreak and install Cydia on iOS 10!
Last but not least, Yalu Jailbreak is still in the beta version. It is highly recommended to wait until the developer releases a more stable version. You are welcome to leave a message at the comment section below if you are having issues with Yalu Jailbreak on iOS 10 devices.
