Did you miss the chance to downgrade to iOS 10.1.1, and now worried of not getting Luca’s YaluX to jailbreak your iDevice? No need to worry as you now see a new hope for jailbreak with Luca Todesco’s “YaluX”. As to him, the support will be added to iOS 10.2, making Jailbreak iOS 10.2 possible for non-iPhone 7/7 Plus 64-bit devices. So those who are interested can now wait with hopes to get jailbreak and Cydia download benefits on 10.2 which signs latest. And here is what we know about the “YaluX” so far.
The tool “YaluX” was released by Luca Todesco days after iOS 10.2 released. And it made users upgraded iOS 10.2 little worried as the tool was planned for iOS 10.1.x and no jailbreak for iOS 10.2. But as the tool comes with several limitations, Luca not recommend the tool for public consumption. In fact, he has disabled Cydia substrate support for “YaluX” to discourage user from its consumption. And for more, it functions with semi-untethered jailbreak mechanism just similar to previous Pangu 9.2-9.3.3 and required to re-jailbreak every time you reboot the device. But until the developer confirms “YaluX” is stable for public use, the tool is only recommended for developers and expertise parties in jailbreak.
Jailbreak iOS 10.2 is Coming
When YaluX came with iOS 10.1.x jailbreak, iOS 10.2 remained hopeless. In fact, Luca has confirmed the 0-day exploits worked for YaluX is anyway closed in latest 10.2, with its tightened security. But under the active developing, we have now reached a great news.

With the facts revealed so far, the upcoming iOS 10.2 jailbreak will only support non-iPhone 7/7 Plus users in 64-bit device range. Even though he has not explained the reason highlightedly, this could probably due to incompatibility of a hardware security measure in latest iPhone 7/7 Plus. And as Luca is not interested on burning another exploit on latest iPhone 7, the tool will remain limited in this condition. But if you are on iOS 10.1.1 on iPhone 7, you are free to use the upcoming “YaluX” to get jailbreak benefits on your latest device.
