Following on from the initial release of yalu102 a few days ago, today saw more betas posted to Luca Todesco’s webpage. And for those who have been patiently for support for their device, this is welcome news.
Since its initial release Luca has been releasing beta updates for iOS 10.2 jailbreak to add better support for different iOS device models and fix bugs faced by beta users. As of beta 3 yalu102 tool supports iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPod touch 6th gen. and iPad Pro. 64-bit iPad Minis are also supported.

The good news is that Luca released an update for the jailbreak today to support all 64-bit devices, except iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Air 2. The latest jailbreak update brings support for the following 64-bit devices:
- iPhone 6s and 6s Plus: 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPhone SE: 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPhone 5s: 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPad Pro: 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPad Air : 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPad Mini 2 and 3: 10.0.0 – 10.2
- iPod touch 6th generation: 10.0.0 – 10.2
The update is still in beta and may contain bugs that could create issues on your iOS device. If you’re willing to take the risk and jailbreak your iOS 10.2 device, you can download the latest Yalu beta from its official website.
We have already put together a guide which shows how to jailbreak with yalu102. The process with these new betas has not changed, simply download the newest beta from Luca Todesco’s site, and then follow our guide to install it. Using this method, you will need to re-sign the application every seven days unless you have a paid developer account, however as the betas are coming fast, you will likely be re-loading the tool faster than that anyway in the short term. There is no word on whether a more permanent solution will eventually be available to avoid these certification requirements.
Just like the iOS 9 Pangu jailbreak, the Yalu jailbreak is also semi-tethered, which means that you’ll have to re-jailbreak using the Yalu app every time your device reboots.
If you plan on jailbreaking your compatible 64-bit device, keep in mind that you have to be extra careful with the tweaks you install. Installing an incompatible tweak can create issues on your device, put it into a bootloop and even force you to restore.
If you can’t wait, just make sure to follow our guide, and have a blast!
