How to Jailbreak iOS 10.2 using Yalu Jailbreak and Cydia Impactor
Luca Todesco has finally released the latest build of the Yalu jailbreak with support for iOS 10.2. The jailbreak is unstable and supports a fairly limited set of iOS devices such as iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and iPad Pro.
If you own a non-supported iOS device then it’s best that you avoid using the iOS 10.2 Yalu jailbreak and wait until Luca adds support for it.
If you can’t wait for the stable version of Yalu to be released, then this tutorial will guide you through the steps to jailbreak iOS 10.2 on supported devices using Yalu and Cydia Impactor.
Warning: Yalu jailbreak is flagged as an “alpha” build and might create issues on your device, so proceed at your own risk. We would strongly recommend waiting until a more stable version of the tool is available.
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 information 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.
