If you are into iOS jailbreak, then do not upgrade or downgrade from iOS 10.2 on your iPhone as latest reports are indicating that the iOS 10.2 jailbreak is almost ready for all non-iPhone 7 Devices with 64-bit architecture. Upcoming Yalu Jailbreak for iOS 10 will bring iOS 10.2 Jailbreak for iPhone device except iPhone 7 / 7 Plus models. Upcoming Yalu iOS jailbreak update will work on compatible device only if they are running on iOS 10.2 firmware version. This comes across as a great news for those who had been waiting for iOS 10.2 jailbreak as the latest Yalu exploit is on its way. Here are the details.
iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Releasing In Next Yalu Update For Compatible iPhone Devices
Only recently Luca Todesco shrugged off any possibility of iOS 10.2 jailbreak when expressing his views on the iOS 10.2 jailbreak scene. He said that no jailbreak is in works for iOS 10.2 running devices. This surety in his tone seemed assuring, but iOS jailbreak is like a mystery movie where anything can happen anytime. However, he did give a passing reference to the thought that to be on a safer side, iOS jailbreak fans should stay away from upgrading to iOS 10.2.1 update. Moreover, keep shsh2 blobs for iOS 10.2 on standby in case iOS 10.2 jailbreak comes along.
The developers behind the Yalu Jailbreak for iOS 10.2 have been hard at work to weed out bugs to make sure a stable jailbreak release. Upcoming Yalu update will feature iOS 10.2 jailbreak support, as hinted by a developer behind Yalu jailbreak exploit.
My fix for the issues in the 10.1 jailbreak will be to add support to 10.2. It will however not work on iPhone 7 on 10.2, just 10 and 10.1.

Luca Todesco seems to have changed his mind, as the latest news appears to be confirming speculations that Mach_Portal + Yalu update will bring iOS 10.2 jailbreak support for iPhone devices except iPhone 7 / 7 Plus on 64-bit architecture. While he stopped short of shedding any information on why the iOS 10.2 jailbreak won’t work on iPhone 7 / 7 Plus, we can presume that perhaps it simply isn’t ready for the latest Apple iPhone devices.
Another great bit of news related to the updated iOS 10.2 Yalu jailbreak relates to the announcement made by Luca Todesco who is basically confirming that the upcoming Yalu jailbreak update will bring all the fixes introduced in the beta versions, which will definitely something to look forward to.
This comes across as a good news for those you hurriedly upgraded to iOS 10.2 and missed out on a chance to get iOS 10 / iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak. But on a flip side, this new Yalu iOS 10.2 jailbreak won’t work on iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. If you want to keep using iOS jailbreak on iPhone 7 / 7 Plus, then stay on the previous iOS 10, iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak.
Also, avoid updating your device’s firmware from iOS 10.2 version. With iOS 10.3 beta slated for January 10th release, Apple is likely to issue iOS 10.2.1 public release anytime now. Ignore any iOS 10.2.1 update notification to stay on iOS 10.2 to be in a chance to get updated iOS jailbreak in Yalu update.
As Apple is still digitally signing iOS 10.2 update, we suggest that you do a clean firmware restore via iTunes, if you are using any other version of the iOS firmware. Don’t forget to backup your device on iTunes before installing iOS 10.2 firmware using iTunes.
As usual, you will get to hear about the upcoming Yalu iOS 10.2 jailbreak here as soon as its released. What are your expectations regarding this iOS 10.2 jailbreak? Share in comments below.
