Limited iPhone 7 / 6s Jailbreak Running iOS 10.1.1 (beta)

Luca Todesco, the well-known iOS hacker, is back in the spotlight with the latest jailbreak solution for iPhone 7 and 6S running iOS 10.1.1. But don’t get too excited, this iPhone jailbreak is extremely limited offering mostly the basic function, like admin access to the iOS operating system. Definitely, for a Cydia developer this means good news but NOT for the average user (at least not right now).

This iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak solution, called Yalu, is far from perfect and is constantly updating, so I recommend you stay away for now. Todesco still working on it, so every day there are new updates. The risk of encountering serious problems during installation is still quite high. Also it’s a tethered jailbreak for iPhone 7 and 6S, forcing you to redo the entire jailbreak process every time your iPhone reboots.

At the moment, Yalu is jailbreaking only on iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus running iOS 10, iOS 10.0.1, iOS 10.0.2, iOS 10.0.3, iOS 10.1, iOS 10.1.1. For now it is unknown whether the solution will include other 64-bit terminals like iPhone 6 or 5s.

If you’re a Cydia developer or just an adventurous jailbreak user, I strongly recommend you make a backup using iTunes or iCloud, it is necessary to have a copy of the data if the procedure fails.

Jailbreak iOS 10.1.1 using Yalu (beta)

  • First you have to download Cydia Impactor on your computer, you can do from here;
  • Next download Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 from here;
  • Unzip Cydia Impactor and open it. It is important NOT to open as administrator. Close “ Run as administrator” option;
  • Now connect your iPhone to computer using a USB cable. iTunes is required to be pre-installed on computer;
  • Disable Find My iPhone and safety code, along with Touch ID;
  • Cydia Impactor should now recognize your iPhone. If it is not recognized, select it using the slider;
  • Now go to the folder where you downloaded Yalu jailbreak;
  • Drag and drop the mach_portal + yalu.ipa over the Cydia Impactor window;
  • First enter your Apple ID, that email address used for Apple ID;
  • Now enter the Apple ID password and wait for the installation to take place. If Cydia Impactor displays various errors, restart the entire procedure;
  • On iPhone go to Settings – General – Device Management – Profile;
  • Select the field in which it is mentioned your Apple ID;
  • Press Trust, then you can open the Yalu App;
  • After a few seconds the iPhone screen will be blue. Shortly will restart and have Cydia installed;

Do not forget, you have to run Yalu jailbreak after every iPhone reboot to use Cydia.

iPhone 7 Jailbreak Update: What’s New

UPDATE: Just a few days after we saw the first evidence of an iPhone 7 jailbreak running iOS 10.1, today a new one is emerging, demonstrating the fact that Apple’s operating system is vulnerable even on the latest iPhone’s.

If previous evidence came from an unknown iOS hacker this time we are talking about a veteran in jailbreaking, Luca Todesco (@qwertyoroiup). A security researcher invited by Apple to be part of a program that rewards any iOS vulnerability disclosure.

Luca presented multiple iOS vulnerabilities over time, but unfortunately he never share them with the general public. Probably , will keep the exploits used in this particular jailbreak private for his research purposes only.

Always made clear that he would never release a jailbreak solution for any iOS versions. Meanwhile, Apple has started to seed iOS 10.2 beta to registered developers.

iPhone 7 Jailbreak Video Proof

Apparently, an unknown iOS hacker (@ijapija00) published a video that demonstrates his jailbreak on the latest iPhone 7 running iOS 10.1. He claims that is using a very stable exploit to successfully install Cydia and just about anything he wants on iPhone 7 with iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.1.1 as well. That’s pretty impressive, but no one can vouch for his credibility.

Despite this, @ijapija00 says that it can demonstrate the whole jailbreak procedure for skeptics, so theoretically, supposed to be real enough.

Before you get too excited, the hacker listed 3 reasons why this iOS 10.1 jailbreak solution for iPhone 7 has not been released yet.

The first reason has to do with Cydia Substrate, which needs lots of patches to be able to function correctly, so @Saurik, the Cydia creator, must intervene to fix some issues. Secondly, @ijapija00 does not want to be liable for any possible damage to iPhone’s that have installed the software. It’s too much hassle and too much stress for him to release a stable version of the solution. Finally, in this state, the jailbreak solution is pretty buggy and generates various problems. Sometimes is stable and sometimes not, that can be very frustrating.

Perhaps this jailbreak solution will not be released to the general public but surely this video demonstrates that jailbreaking iOS 10 is indeed still possible despite all the security measures imposed by Apple.

iPhone Jailbreak Running iOS 9.3.3 Using Safari App

iPhone jailbreak enters a new era this week, since anyone can use the latest jailbreak software directly from the Safari browser without having to install anything on their own computer.

iOS hackers from 25pp have created a special application that allows users to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 directly from Safari on iPhone, simply by accessing a web page and accepting/installing the application that allows to exploit your terminal. Although the procedure for iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak has been greatly simplified, we are still talking about a tethered jailbreak solution, so you have to accept all the problems generated by repeating the procedure of jailbreak every time you reboot the device.

Before following the jailbreak procedure for iOS 9.3.3 using Safari, you need to backup of your data through iTunes or iCloud, because if the procedure will not work, you will need to do a restore and lose all data in the device, so it is best to avoid this unpleasant situation. Considering how the procedure works, there are small chances like this to happen, but it’s always good to be prepared.

Also, you should disable Find My iPhone and possibly a PIN that you have set for your card, and that’s because the style in which the jailbreak was developed may cause problems in conditions like this.
You can jailbreak only on iPhone 5s, 6, 6Plus, 6s, 6s Plus and iPhone SE running iOS 9.3.3 – iOS 9.2

How to Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 Using Safari

  • First, open Safari App on iPhone;
  • Access this web page [http://j.25pp.com/ota_tutorial.html];
  • When you receive the message that says Open this page in “App Store”, select options Open;pp-jailbreak-safari
  • Now you will see a message like sslapi.25pp.com would like to install ‘PP’. Choose the option Install and the PP application will be installed in your iPhone;install-pp-jailbreak
  • Go to Settings > General > Device Management and trust the certificate that is displayed (ex. Beijing Hong Yuan…..). Note that the certificate should last you one year;
  • Open the PP app icon appeared on the Home screen, accept the sending of notifications and press the button to jailbreak, then lock the iPhone;pp-jailbreak-complete
  • In LockScreen you will see notifications that will confirm each step that PP app makes and after Cydia will be installed successfully you will see a notification. Your iPhone will restart with an active jailbreak;

Fix iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak Issues to Make Your iPhone Safe and Stable

pangu-933-jailbreak-problems

Latest jailbreak issues associated with iOS 9.3.3 include a failed jailbreak, Apple ID issues, FaceTime not working following jailbreaking, Cydia crashing, and unfortunately there are more. We’ll also be showing you how Location Services can be fixed following the installation of the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.

The easiest thing for uses to do could be to simply wait, because we understand the Pangu team are already working on fixing some of the more common jailbreak problems with iOS 9.3.3. You don’t need to take it anywhere for help, and you don’t need to wipe your phone and start over. If you run into problems with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, it is possible to do a complete restore and start again from scratch, but that’s the final option.

Pangu Won’t Open

You need to remember that the Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool only works on Windows. At this point in time it doesn’t work on a Mac. So, if you’ve opened the jailbreak tool on Windows and experienced an issue, or it closed, you need to completely restart the computer before trying to re-open it.

Ensure that you are allowing access, and remember that the firewall needs access to the tool too.

Pangu Won’t Accept Your Apple ID

Entering your Apple ID is just part of using the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak on your PC. It’s our recommendation that you use a different Apple ID; one that’s not connected to all your personal information.

You’ll know that the jailbreak tool is having issues with your Apple ID if you see a crying computer. It may be that you need to turn off the two-factor authentication in your iCloud settings. Again, it’s our recommendation that you use the second ID that doesn’t need this, or alternatively, to use the no-computer-needed jailbreak which doesn’t ask for your Apple ID.

iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak Fails

Follow these instructions if you’ve tried completing the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and you can see that there’s an error message in Chinese.

  • Restart both your computer and your iPhone;
  • Next, make sure that Find My iPhone is turned off and that you are, in fact, on iOS 9.3.3.
  • In addition, make sure that PassCode has been turned off.

If the problem still exists, your next step should be to Restore: this will ensure that your iPhone doesn’t have any Over-the-Air updates. These updates can interfere with the jailbreaking process.

Fix Location Services

We’ve received reports from some users that the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak breaks Location Services. We understand how annoying this would be, but if you do run into this problem there are several simple fixes.

Possibly the easiest fix is to go into Settings – General – Reset – then Reset Network Settings. This won’t erase your data but it will wipe all your network information, such as Wi-Fi connections. Try turning on Location Services when your phone reboots.

If you still have a problem, then the iPhone should be restarted: launch the PP jailbreak app again and re-jailbreak. Try turning Location Services back on once you’ve completed these steps.

If you still haven’t resolved the issue, your final attempt should be to download libLocation from Cydia and install it onto your iPhone.

Fix Error failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1)

The error (failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1)) has to do with the jailbreak tweaks and apps installed on your iPhone, and there are two ways of solving:

  • Open Cydia
  • Go to Sources menu
  • Using the button at the top right add repo: https://coolstar.org/publicrepo
  • Search for package Stashing for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3 and install it, theoretically the problem is solved.

The second way:

  • Open Cydia
  • Go to Search menu
  • Install Apple File Conduit 2, or AFC2ADD
  • Now on your computer install iFunbox
  • Open iFunbox and connect iPhone to the computer
  • Search for your device and choose option Raw File Sistem
  • Now on the right you will see a number of files and folders
  • Search file /.cydia_no_stash and rename it /.cydia_no_stash-
  • Now disconnect iPhone from computer, open Cydia and everything should function normally

Fix FaceTime

If you’ve used the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and you find that you can’t use FaceTime, you’ll need to restart your iPad or iPhone then re-try the jailbreak app on your phone. Most users have found that this method fixes FaceTime jailbreak issues.

Cydia is Not Installed

Given that we are talking about a buggy jailbreak solution, there is the possibility that Cydia app to refuse installation on your iPhone. There is no fix for that, just repeat the jailbreak procedure until everything starts to work.

After several attempts Cydia still not working, then a restore will be the only solution.

Apps Crash

If you’ve installed the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and you start experiencing issues with apps on your iPhone, your first step is to make sure that your phone didn’t restart. If it did, you may need to use the app on your iPhone and re-jailbreak.

Another issue with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak is that, at the moment, not all Cydia tweaks and apps work well.

Fixing iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak Problems

If you’ve tried all the above tips and you’re still experiencing issues with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, we strongly suggest you restore your iPhone and then re-jailbreak without restoring from backup.

If this is what you’re planning to do, connect your iPhone to a computer and use iTune’s Restore option. This will ensure that the right version of iOS 9.3.3 has been downloaded, and it will then be installed so that your iPhone is starting fresh.
Once you’ve completed this process, your iPhone can be jailbroken on iOS 9.3.3 and hopefully this time you’ll experience fewer problems.

It’s important for iPhone users to acknowledge that using the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak can potentially open the door to possible security breaches; however, it also unlocks a host of great possibilities, like GPS spoofing on Pokémon without the risk of being banned from the game.

Promised iOS 9.3.1 Jailbreak Solution Sold in China

Turns out, the hype surrounding the iOS 9.3 jailbreak was to much for iOS hacker @enMTW so decides to sell the solution to China. He also complains about the jailbreak community, and the fact that is not getting any help from @Saurik (Cydia developer) to provide users with Cydia app.

Hacker recently claimed to have a jailbreak solution for the latest iOS version that wishes to release publicly for free.
In a published explanation on Reddit, hacker said that it was a huge pressure to release the jailbreak solution, but t is useless without Cydia, so he accepted less money only if it will be released publicly.

enMTW-on-reddit

From this point no one knows how long until the Chinese buyers will give us an iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak solution, but it looks like it will come with Cydia and everything we need to enjoy an jailbroken iOS device.

iOS 9.3 Jailbreak Announced Ready for Release in April

iOS 9.3 jailbreak has already been announced for release during the night, though iOS 9.3 is officially available for just a little more than 12 hours. A less known iOS hacker (@enMTW) claiming that will offer to public a free jailbreak solution for all Apple device running the latest iOS 9.3, NO iOS 9.2.1.

Needless to say that peoples are very optimistic. A few weeks ago, hacker @enMTW has demonstrated that it can exploit Apple’s latest beta operating system( 9.3 beta), so it is verry posible that he owns a jailbreak solution for the final version. However, the release will take place only after the new iPhone SE will be officially presented, so no earlier than March 31st.

Apart from this, there are various iOS hackers from all over the world working on a jailbreak solutions for iOS 9.3 (and as many are fake), but no one yet knows when or if they will be released for free to public.

The New PanGu iOS 9.1 Jailbreak Is Now Available (How To)

Recently a new iOS 9.1 jailbreak was released, PanGu Team updating PanGu9 tool allowing exploitation of this version of the operating system on any devices equipped with a 64-bit chip.

According to PanGu, the iOS 9.1 jailbreak was possible thanks to an exploit that Apple has left it open in this version of the operating system, but it was closed in iOS 9.2, so jailbreak for the latest iOS versions is not possible. Basically, only those who own a device running iOS 9.1, their number is likely to be extremely small, can use PanGu9 to jailbreak. Also, there is no possibility to install iOS 9.1 right now if you have an older or newer iOS version.

Unfortunately PanGu Team did not provide details about the possible release of iOS 9.3 jailbreak solutions, so don’t get your hopes up too high, especially since the launch of iOS 9.3 is a few weeks away.

How to Use PanGu9 and Jailbreak iOS 9.1

To jailbreak iOS 9.1 using PanGu9, we have to make some actions to ensure that the procedure runs smoothly.

  • First, you need to disable Find My iPhone app. Go to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone;
  • Second step you need to do is disable the Touch ID and Passcode that you find in Settings > Touch ID & Passcode;
  • Third step you need to do is to make a backup, PanGu Team strongly recommend it;
  • Ultimately you need to activate Airplane Mode. It is very important, the entire jailbreak process depends on it;

Remember, PanGu9 jailbreak is working on devices running iOS 9, 9.0.1, 9.0.2, 9.1.

  1. Connect your device to computer and close iTunes. Make sure you follow the steps above;
  2. Download PanGu9 from here. After successfully detecting your device click the “Start” button to initiate the procedure;Pangu9-start-300x209
  3. If you already have jailbroken your device, choose “Already backup” to inject the exploit and the jailbreak procedure will start;Pangu9-Notice-300x208
  4. After restarting you need to unlock and reactivate Airplane Mode;
  5. Now you need to provide access to photo library. Run the Pangu app and click the “Accept” button and then “OK” to provide access to photos;Pangu9-Injecting-300x206
  6. After performing this last step the jailbreak will be completed;

Jailbreak iOS 9.3, 9.2 and 9.2.1 Possible. Hacker Proves It.

Yes! Jailbreaking iOS 9.3, 9.2 and 9.2.1 it’s possible. An iOS hacker (@qwertyoruiop) recently published a video in which demonstrates that all three versions of the operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch can be exploited by anyone with suitable exploits. As you can notice in the video below, it is an untethered jailbreak.

Last month, the same hacker published a demo performing a jailbreak on iOS 9.2.1, adding that the solution will not be released for general users.

When we will see a jailbreak solution?

Probably never. Or at least not from this hacker. Actually the Italian hacker who developed this jailbreak solution running on iOS 9.3, 9.2 and 9.2.1 was very clear when he said that will not release for free because the specific exploit code is far too important.

It was indeed easy to understand that a jailbreak for all three versions will not be released anytime soon since iOS 9.3 is still in beta test, so until the middle of March do not expect to see any jailbreak solution for free.

iOS 9.3 Just Got Jailbroken (Code Injection Proof)

Luca Todesco (aka. @qwertyoruiop) is an Italian iOS jailbreak developer, and we’ve just received some encouraging news (that incidentally wasn’t entirely a surprise) that he has a jailbroken device running iOS 9.3.

Apple only released the beta version of iOS yesterday, but it appears that it’s already been successfully jailbroken: the proof of this is in the video which clearly shows the Cydia icon – in addition, we can see Night Shift in action, which is iOS 9.3’s new feature.

In the video we also see Todesco opening Cydia, again offering proof that, not only is the device running iOS 9.3, it’s also fully jailbroken. Unfortunately, this only adds weight to our belief that we probably won’t see a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.2.1, which has been in beta since 17th December.

Until yesterday we wondered if a tool might be released for iOS 9.2.1, but this would mean that Apple would probably patch it in the final release of iOS 9.3. Therefore, it wouldn’t be able to be jailbroken and users wouldn’t be able to take advantage of features like the enhanced 3D Touch and Night Shift.

It’s highly likely that Todesco used the same exploit he used when he posted images of his jailbroken device running iOS 9.2.1. However, it’s unclear whether the next jailbreak tool (which will probably come from either the TaiG or Pangu team) will use the same exploit: possibly, but probably unlikely – these teams may not jailbreak either iOS 9.2.1 or 9.3 if they want to preserve valuable exploits.

Does Jailbreak Make Your iPhone Slower or Unstable?

Jailbreaking Make iPhone Slower

There are many exciting reasons for jailbreaking your iPhone, but a lot of people worry that iOS “jailbreak” might create instability or slow down their terminal’s performance. Of course this is a valid concern, because it can be one of the downsides of jailbreaking; but it doesn’t have to be this way.

If your iPhone does slow down, this is just a temporary issue that can easily be resolved. It’s important to remember that, if you are going to jailbreak your iPhone, you must ensure that your device is running iOS 9.0.2. Anything newer than this is not currently jailbreakable, because with the release of iOS 9.1 Apple patched up the jailbreak exploits; and they’re still intact for iOS 9.2.

If you are on iOS 9.0.2, then there are no problems with jailbreaking your iPhone and we have the perfect guide to take you through the jailbreaking process.

Once your iPhone has been jailbroken, though, you may be concerned that the jailbreaking will affect your iPhone by slowing it down, perhaps now or in the future. Here is some information about jailbreaking and the performance of your iPhone.

So, the Main Question Here Is: Will Jailbreaking Your IPhone Slow It down?

This is probably the most asked question from iPhone users who are interested in jailbreaking their phone, and because it’s a legitimate concern it’s a very good question to ask.

When an iPhone is jailbroken and various tweaks have subsequently been installed, it means that the iOS has been modified at the code level – so changes will occur to the system. It’s quite natural to be concerned that this may affect overall stability and performance of the iPhone.

So, in answer to the question, yes, jailbreaking your iPhone can cause your iPhone to slow down; however, it won’t be permanent and it’s not something that will occur the moment you jailbreak your iPhone.

It’s important to remember that, whether your iPhone is jailbroken or not, it will become slower over time anyway. As iOS gains more features and becomes more resource-heavy, the older iPhones won’t be able to keep up. Obviously, this is not the main reason why jailbroken iPhones slow down, but when you’re experiencing performance issues it’s something you need to consider.

Basically, when you install a lot of jailbreak tweaks your iPhone can slow down, and this will depend on what tweaks you install, and how many you install. It’s possible that some jailbreak tweaks will clash with others, resulting in slowdowns and problems with your iPhone’s performance.
But, the good news is that jailbreaking won’t permanently slow down your iPhone. It’s generally just a matter of determining which one is the culprit (and this will usually be a single tweak that’s causing the problems) and then getting rid of it.

Generally speaking, jailbreaking can cause your iPhone to slow down, and during your jailbreaking experience it’s likely that you’ll come across some performance issues at one point or another. Just remember that this is something that can easily be fixed, once you have the knowledge of how to troubleshoot jailbreaking problems.
