Cydia iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Installer Release Date ?
Although both Taig and Pangu will have examined the iOS 10.2 [ beta ], it is likely that the final version is somewhat different and will require further scrutiny to see what can be done. There are a lot of factors that go into when a jailbreak is released and everything is against the jailbreak teams right now. Although we know from Luca Todesco that iOS 10 can be jailbroken we mustn’t forget that Pangu [ext link] and Taig have to make sure their utility is safe for millions of users, not just one or two.

The other determining factors this time around include Apple’s new security feature, Rootless, and the Bug Bounty program. First, Apple promised that Rootless would put a stop to jailbreaking by stopping users from gaining access to root iOS files. That includes anyone with admin access rights and that could be a major stumbling block in producing an iOS 10.2 jailbreak. Although we know that it can be got around in a small way, whether it can work for mass jailbreaks is a different matter and, at the very least, it is making the whole process slower.
Apple’s Bug Bounty Stopping iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Progress :
The Bug Bounty program is a brand new innovation from Apple. In the past, they have expected researchers to report vulnerabilities to them with the only reward being a safer iOS. This year is different. This year, Apple is offering to pay researchers up to $200,000 for reporting significant vulnerabilities and that may result in teams like Pangu and Taig finding that the vulnerabilities they thought they could use being sold out from under their noses.
It isn’t very positive news right now but we have no doubt that both Taig and Pangu are busy working on an iOS 10.2 jailbreak. If you Subscribe to our free email newsletter and follow us on Facebook, we’ll send the updates straight to your email inbox.
