iOS 10.2 Jailbreak is a long shot even for Pangu. Apple has released iOS 10.2 update last week for iPhone and iPad devices. The latest iOS 10.2 comes up with its own challenges and security fixes. Pangu is planning to release iOS 10 Jailbreak with up to iOS 10.1.1 support.
Can you jailbreak iOS 10.2? Many of you must be thinking about it. We are unsure at this moment about iOS 10.2 jailbreak release, but Luca Todesco has something to share with everyone. No doubts, he has already achieved the iOS 10 jailbreak on variety of iOS 10 variants. He took Twitter to announce iOS 10.2 jailbreak is tough than iOS 10.1.1. Furthermore, it is not recommended to update your device to latest iOS 10.2 firmware if you want the iOS 10 jailbreak.
iOS 10.2 Jailbreak May Not Release On Time
We have been following Todesco to learn more about the iOS 10 jailbreak. He made headlines in the past with his own range of security exploits that allowed him to jailbreak iPhone 7 before everyone. He mentions Apple has once again made changes to iOS 10 core security functions to avoid public iOS 10 jailbreak. He personally had to go through extra steps to achieve the iOS 10.2 jailbreak, which means it is now even harder for Pangu to release an iOS 10.2 jailbreak.
Todesco has showcased his iOS 10.2 jailbreak on iPhone 7 with Cydia running smoothly on his device. He further previewed few tweaks installed and running properly on his device. In the past, Saurik was asked to work on Cydia to make it compatible with iOS 10 running devices. It seems Todesco has teamed up with Saurik to improve Cydia before the public release of iOS 10 jailbreak.
Pangu Will Not Wait for iOS 10.2 Jailbreak
A number of sources has already confirmed upcoming iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak release from Pangu in the last week of December. A security researcher who works closely with Pangu claims the iOS 10 Jailbreak tool is almost ready and getting released later this month to mark the dates. iOS 10 Jailbreak is going to be the first jailbreak for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices. It is going to unlock new doors of customization for iOS users with newer devices.
At first it was rumored Pangu will release iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak before the public launch of iOS 10.2 update for iPhone and iPad devices. However, things seems to be different now, Apple has rolled out the iOS 10.2 download for everyone and many of you might have already updated their devices to latest iOS 10.2. The iOS 10.2 jailbreak is yet to be discussed by any source, and it seems it will be delayed in the favor of iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak release.
The iOS 10.1.1 Jailbreak is getting released later this month with open-source code available for everyone to modify and implement in their own solutions. Apple has previously fixed Pangu’s iOS 10 jailbreak exploit before the launch, and with iOS 10.2 rollout the same thing could happen. We can have the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak release happening anytime in the upcoming week.
