Jailbreak iOS 10.2 Yalu: the history of the changes and recommendations for installing
At the moment the jailbreak tool 10.2 from Luca Todesco yalu102 is in beta testing. Up to this point was released on the seventh build, which is already quite stable and safe to use. In this article we will talk about the changes in each test Assembly yalu102 and working current at the moment the seventh beta.
Change history iOS 10.2 Yalu102:
Beta 1. Initial release. Update of the previous exploit designed to crack iOS 10 – 10.1.1. Added functionality Cydia Substrate.
Beta 2 . Support for devices with page size 4K. Originally only supported gadgets with 16K, that is the iPhone 6s and the newer models. The second beta added support iPhone 6, iPhone 5s and others.
Beta 3. Fixed to work with Apple Watch.
Beta 4. It is not recommended to use. Version was withdrawn because of critical errors.
Closed a security vulnerability used yalu102. Updated utility after jailbreak fixes the vulnerabilities used by the exploit to hack gadgets. In other words, protected from re-breaking device. Added utility “nonceenabler” from tihmstar that automatiseret add nonceenabler users Prometheus.
Changed the open ports for DropBear. DropBear is an analogue of SSH included in the jailbreak. Initially, it allows attackers to connect to the device via Wi-Fi in that case, if the SSH password was not changed. Now the Protocol is more secure because it only works via USB. However, the default SSH password is recommended to change no one will be able to receive data from the device when connected to the computer.
The developer added tool tfp0 to use many powerful utilities including Prometheus.
Added support for JIT developers.
Beta 5. Version withdrawn because of critical errors.
Went out with the purpose of correcting errors in the previous build.
Beta 6. Enhance the stability of Beta 4 and 5.
Beta 7. Support iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and the other 64-bit devices except for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
At the moment yalu102 beta 7 is the current version of the exploit. As told to Todesco further improve stability are planned. Nevertheless, it is the safest jailbreak for the last time, works more reliably than the iOS version 10.0-10.1.1.
Despite some minor flaws, overall the jailbreak works well, almost the same iOS 9.3.3 at the time. However, it should be remembered that the installation is incompatible or untested tweaks highly undesirable. An example is AppSync, which sends the iPhone into an eternal reboot.
In subsequent beta versions of Yalu are unlikely to expect major changes, except support for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Other innovations to be minor, in particular, is expected to improve support Prometheus. This will allow the program to restore the devices with the eternal “Apple” using certificates shsh2.
