As you already know, Luca Todesco stopped doing what was best for him, that is, putting his teeth on long, and has released the first version of Yalu, a tool to jailbreak iOS 10.1.x in These moments are in beta. As the last Pangu tool, this is a semi-tethered jailbreak and it will take Cydia Impactor to install the IPA from where we will activate it every time we restart the iOS device.

Although the hacker himself has been in charge to warn that the software is in beta and we should not install it unless we know what we are doing, in this tutorial we will facilitate the steps to follow to install this latest jailbreak, Yalu name, Using the Saurik Cydia Impactor tool.
Things to take into account and previous steps:

  • As always we are going to make any changes in the firmware of any device, before we start we will back up all important data from the iOS device. We can do it either with iTunes/iCloud, which would be a complete backup, or saving only those files that we want to keep, like photos, videos and other documents.
  • In order to perform the process, before starting we have to deactivate the lock code and “Search for my iPhone”.
  • At the time of writing this tutorial, this jailbreak only works on iPhone 7 that have installed iOS 10.1.x and iPhone 6s and iPad Pro in any version of iOS 10. The iPod and other older devices will work in future versions, although it is likely Do not include support for 32bit devices.
  • The jailbreak is semi-tethered and will stop working every time we shut down or reboot the device.
  • To confirm: as the system requires Cydia Impactor, the jailbreak could stop working in 7 days if it is confirmed that depends on developer certificates. Todesco is likely to add support for its activation web system, which would solve this problem.
  • Most importantly, remember that the software is in beta and that the developer does not advise its use unless you know very well what is being done.

Step 1: Download the latest version of Yalu from this link and Cydia Impactor from here.
Step 2: Open the file Impactor_0.9.3.dmg that we downloaded in the previous step.

Step 3: Drag Impactor to the applications folder. It is likely to work running from the DMG, but it is not worth taking a chance considering the current state of the Todesco tool.

Step 4: Open the Applications folder and double click on Impactor to run it. It will tell us that it is an application downloaded from the Internet and that it can be dangerous.

Step 5: Connect our iPhone 7, 6s or iPad Pro to the computer with the Lightning-USB cable.
Step 6: Drag the Yalu IPA file – which at the time of writing this tutorial is called mach_portal + yalu-b3.ipa- which we downloaded in step 2 to the Cydia Impactor window.

Step 7: You will then be prompted for an Apple ID along with your password.

Step 8: Now click Start to begin the installation process.
Step 9: Once installed, go to the iPhone or iPad Pro:  Access to Settings / General / Profiles and device management.

Step 10: Select your Apple ID, or the one used in step 7. Press “Trust + our_email”. Then we play again in Trust.

Step 11: Go back to the boot screen and run “mach_portal”. You will see a blank screen for no more than 30 seconds.

Now wait for your iPhone or iPad Pro to restart and voila!!!.

Each time we restart we will have to execute mach_portal + yalu. Todesco launched a tool that allowed us to reactivate Pangu’s latest jailbreak from a web page, which made it not dependent on the developer certificates. The name “mach_portal” makes me think that the famous hacker is thinking of something similar for his own jailbreak, which would mean that it would always work if we reactivated it from the web.

Remember that the last jailbreak of Pangu depends on some certificates of developer that Apple usually revoke. If Apple revokes a certificate, the application stops working, so we have to get another to perform the process again, something that is not always possible.

Although Todesco has already warned that it is better not to follow this tutorial unless we know what we are doing, do not hesitate to leave your experiences in the comments if you decide not to listen and jailbreak your iOS device with iOS 10.1.x
