we have got some great news. Following the release of of ‘extra_recipe’ by developer xerub, which should resolve the stability issues which have been plaguing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users on the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak. Yalu creator Luca Todesco has in turn picked up the extra_recipe code and paired it with his Yalu jailbreak, compiling the project into a downloadable .ipa to create extra_recipe+yaluX, which effectively replaces his previous yalu+mach_portal tool.
If you’re on iOS 10.1.1 on your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus and have been debating whether to update due to its bugginess, it’s now safe to say that you should not update. With this release, you should be able to enjoy a jailbreak the like of which Yalu102 users have been enjoying for some time.
The new version dubbed as extra_recipe+yaluX replaces the old implementation of yalu and mach_portal with the new and improved implementation from xerub. This version is meant for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users only, as users of other devices already had the much stable yalu102 jailbreak. Now with extra_recipe+yaluX iPhone 7 users will also see a much stable jailbreak, which will also render the Substrate without having to use the Substrate fix tweaks. Other issues such as backboardd fixes for Order 65, Order 66 etc have also rendered obsolete with this release.
Luca Todesco has already posted the ipa for extra_recipe+yaluX on his official website, which can be used with Cydia Impactor to jailbreak an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, however the tool is currently released as beta 1. This means it is very likely for your device to run into problems during and after the jailbreak process. Another reason to wait for a stable release is that the beta one of extra_recipe+yaluX does not install Cydia. It also does not run Substrate or remount file system as read-write. This means anyone looking for a ‘normal’ jailbreak with the ability to install tweaks etc will be disappointed for now.
xerub, the developer behind the new hack has just tweeted that extra_receipt+yalu with Cydia might release tonight or tomorrow. The iPhone 7 Plus support will be added by weekend according to the developer.
Cydia version of extra_recipe+yalu will come later tonight or tomorrow. Support for earlier i7(+) probably by weekend

Those iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users who have been patient enough to wait around for stability fixes for mach_portal, and have endured the Substrate and backboardd countermeasures in the meantime, seem to have finally been rewarded. Once this new tool reaches a later beta, I’d recommend moving onto it for the best experience.
Are you still on iOS 10.1.1 on your iPhone 7(+)? Are you ready to try out this new and improved jailbreak? Let us know in the comments.
