The iOS 10 jailbreak already makes it way to internet. iH8Sn0w, prominent jailbreak hacker has released a video of iPhone 5 running iOS 10 jailbreak and Cydia working fine without crashes using his personal exploits.
In less than 72 hours, we had the iOS 10 Jailbreak preview coming from hackers. iH8sn0w is one of the key members of iOS jailbreak community. He is already famous for his jailbreak contribution in the community. And, if he has figured out a working exploit for iOS 10 jailbreak, then it means it will come out.
Apple released iOS 10 beta to developers this week at WWDC 2016. The iOS 10 beta 1 is available for download, and it is for developers only. While developers are working on fixing their apps for iOS 10, we have jailbreak hackers working to discover ways to get their hands on iOS 10 with read & write access to disk without any restriction.
iOS 10 Jailbreak Availability & Exploit:
The hacker is yet to share any information about his iOS 10 jailbreak exploit with the general public. We summed up from the video that iH8sn0w must be using his old iBoot exploit which he demoed years back for 32-bit devices. There is no official information announced by jailbreak developer. He quietly released a status update for particular people to claim his position as the first iOS 10 jailbreak.
It is worth mentioning here, if we are right about the iBoot exploit for iOS 10 jailbreak then it means there will be no iOS 10 jailbreak release for 64-bit devices, means iH8sn0w jailbreak exploit will not support any device launch after iPhone 5c.
Untethered iOS 10 Jailbreak for iPhone 5 & 5c:
In the video, iH8snow restarted his iPhone device to showcase his untethered iOS jailbreak. The untethered iOS 10 jailbreak from iH8sn0w will work on older devices. iH8Sn0w also made sure by removing stock iOS app to confirm he is running iOS 10 beta.
The untethered iOS 10 Jailbreak means a great progress against Apple security. Release of such iOS jailbreak exploit assures it will allow others to discover exploits. Other teams may use it to find iOS 10 jailbreak for iPhone 5s and upcoming iPhone 7.
When i0S 10 Jailbreak Will Come Out?
The preview of iOS 10 jailbreak by iH8sn0w means nothing. We are not sure if he used older exploit or newly discovered in iOS 10 beta. If the hacker has used iBoot exploit then, it will be limited to older devices and will be a general burn off the exploit. Also, the iOS 10 is currently in beta development.
There are high chances that Apple will fix these security exploit in the upcoming beta version updates. There is no definitive timeline available for iOS 10 jailbreak release. However, we expect them to release the jailbreak after iOS 10 public launch. iH8sn0w didn’t shared information about the release of his jailbreak tool. And, if you expect to test the new tool, you need to wait for 3-4 months. Apple will launch iOS 10 first, and then jailbreak developers will release their tool.
