While we eagerly wait for the iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak, we have some good news for users who have jailbroken their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using Yalu jailbreak, you may be aware that the jailbreak app expires every 7 days, after which you have to re-sign it using Cydia Impactor on your computer.
It can be a bit of a hassle to sign the Yalu jailbreak using your computer every time it expires, especially when you don’t have a computer nearby. Well, you no longer have to worry about this anymore with a new Cydia package known as Extender Installer.
Extender Installer is an amazing tweak that automatically re-signs the Yalu 10.2 jailbreak as soon as it expires, without requiring you to do it manually. This is a great time saver as you no longer have to use your computer every time you want to re-sign the Yalu jailbreak. This tweak does it automatically without requiring you to do anything from your side.
Extender Installer is based on Saurik’s legacy tweak called Cydia Extender, but improves upon it to provide a better signing solution. Here’s how to install and get started with Extender Installer.
How to Re-Sign iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Automatically with Extender Installer
Step 1: Open Cydia and go to the Sources tab.
Step 2: Tap on Edit > Add, and then add the following repo:
Step 3: Once added, search for Extender Installer and install it.
Step 4: After your device resprings, go to the Home screen and open the Extender app.
Step 5: Go to the More tab and make sure that you’re signed in with your Apple ID. If not, tap on the Sign In button and enter your Apple ID and password (although the information is sent to Apple only, we recommend that you use a burner Apple ID).
Step 6: Next up, you’ll find an option in the More tab that says ‘Re-sign Application When’. This allows you to specify when apps should be signed automatically.
That’s all you have to do to set up Extender Installer and have it re-sign the Yalu jailbreak automatically along with other apps that you sideload. From the Installed tab, you can view all the apps that have been sideloaded onto your device as well as the last time you signed it. Whenever the Yalu jailbreak or a sideloaded app is re-signed automatically by Extender Installer, you’ll get a notification.
You currently cannot jailbreak iOS 10.3.1, iOS 10.3 and iOS 10.2.1 using Yalu Jailbreak. But Pangu team has demoed the iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak at a tech conference in China, so we’re hopeful they will release Pangu Jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1 soon.
