Legendary iOS jailbreak master Luca Tudesco is working on an iOS 10.2 jailbreak, which will be with us any day now. If you are familiar with iOS jailbreak scene, you must be aware that once Apple stops singing an iOS version, it’s not longer possible to downgrade on to it. Apple does so to prevent iOS jailbreak.

Downgrade iOS 10.2.1 To iOS 10.2 To Get Your Device Ready For Jailbreak
When a new iOS update is rolled out by Apple, many rush to download it on their device without giving a second though to the possible consequences of such an action. Sometime new update may not be properly tested and could contain some bugs which can impact the normal functioning of your iOS device. Upgrading to an iOS version with no jailbreak support makes it tough to downgrade to a version which does have a working jailbreak exploit available if that version is no longer digitally signed (in other words supported) by Apple.
Luca’s latest iOS 10.2 jailbreak is in works and will be a part of the mach_portal + Yalu jailbreak tool. So, if you like jailbroken iOS devices to enjoy tweaks and app that are not officially available on Apple App Store and have already updated your device to iOS 10.2.1, then we suggest you do yourself a favor and revert back to the iOS 10.2 update at earliest. Since the iOS 10.2 is still being signed and supported by Apple, it’s easy to downgrade your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch on iOS 10.2.
