iOS 10 Jailbreak News, Pangu Status: The Good and The Bad NewsBy Avery Robbins, UniversityHerald Reporter
It's been awhile since iOS 10 was released to public and there is no single legitimate jailbreak that actually supports the current firmware. Of course, there are a few other jailbreakers aside from Pangu, who managed to develop the tools. Luca Todesco and TaiG team are among them.
However, Todesco with its Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.1 is attached to a string of bugs and remaining in a beta phase simply means unstable. Pangu, on the other hand, remains silent without bother to drop any tease.
iOS 10 is tough
One strong reason behind the delay of iOS 10 jailbreak release is the fact that iOS 10 firmware is much stronger than iOS 9. It is extremely powerful because Apple leaves the kernel unencrypted.
This enables developers to find holes in the security so that Apple quickly finds out any potential vulnerability before releasing a patch, MacRumors explained. That being the case, it will be harder for hackers, even Pangu, to create a tool to break the restriction.
Pangu's silent is golden
There is still hope for Pangu to launch a version of iOS 10 jailbreak sooner or later. Based on the past experience, the Chinese hacking group has always been silent before it drops a tool to public.
The only thing that hints at a jailbreaking tool was when the team demoed iOS 10 security flaws at Mobile Security Conference in Shanghai last year, WccFtech reported.
There may not be any stable iOS 10 jailbreak
Todesco has made it clear that Yalu 10.1.1 for iPhone 7 is not his top priority as of this moment.
To clear it up: Yalu1011 for iPhone 7 will be updated at some point. Just not a priority right now. Got stuff to do.— qwertyoruiop (@qwertyoruiopz) February 1, 2017
And as a reminder, the seventh beta version of his iOS 10.1 jailbreak hasn't shown any clue as to when the stable version will arrive. If Apple constantly rollouts patches to prevent exploits, it is safe to assume that a stable jailbreak tool may not arrive at all.
