Yalu Jailbreak does not support the following iOS 10 devices yet:
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
The jailbreak works only on the above iOS devices running iOS 10.2.
The jailbreak is semi-tethered, similar to the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3.
Make sure that you take a complete backup of your device via iCloud or iTunes.
Ensure that your device has enough battery level for the jailbreak process to complete.
If the jailbreak doesn’t work properly, you will have to restore your device to the latest iOS firmware, which is iOS 10.2.1 currently.
Step 1: Download the latest version of Cydia Impactor from here and Yalu Jailbreak IPA for iOS 10.2 from here. As of this writing, the jailbreak IPA file is named yalu102_alpha.ipa.
Step 2: Double click to open Cydia Impactor.
Step 3: Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer using a USB cable.
Step 4: If Cydia Impactor recognizes your device , it will appear in the drop down list as shown below.
Step 5: Drag and drop the Yalu Ipa file onto Cydia Impactor.
Step 6: You will be asked to enter your Apple ID and password. This infrmation will be sent to Apple only and will be used to sign the IPA file.
Step 7: Once the app is installed on your device, you should see its icon on the Home screen labelled “yalu102”.
Step 8: To launch the app, you must first trust the developer profile. To do so, go to Settings -> General -> Profiles & Device Management and tap on the profile corresponding to the Apple ID you used in Cydia Impactor.
Step 9: Press the “Trust” button.
Step 10: Go back to the Home screen and launch the yalu102 app.
Step 11: Press the Go button for the jailbreak to begin. Do not touch your device until the jailbreak is done.
Step 12: Your device will reboot automatically and Cydia should appear on the Home screen. If it’s not there, open the yalu102 app and jailbreak again.
Congrats, your device is now jailbroken! Cydia will take some time to perform the initial setup when you launch it for the first time. After it’s done, you can start using it, but keep in mind that you should only install the compatible tweaks to avoid running into issues. We will post the list of iOS 10.2 compatible jailbreak tweaks soon.
Additionally, this jailbreak is semi-tethered, which means that every time you restart your iOS device, you will have to launch the Yalu (yalu102) app to re-jailbreak it.
If the jailbreak is causing issues on your device, then the best thing to do is to remove it by restoring your device to iOS 10.2.1.
