Now that iOS 10 download is here and is being downloaded across the globe, it’s time to turn our attention to what comes next – the iOS 10 jailbreak. All of the exploits used in the previous jailbreak for iOS 9+ have been patched and we are now waiting on Pangu [ Pangu 10 – ext link ] to tell us when they will be able to release a utility for iOS 10. We are hoping that this is not going to be too far away; Pangu are pretty good at releasing their jailbreaks quickly so, while we wait, let’s look at what you need to do to prepare your iOS device for the iOS 10 jailbreak while still retaining your current one.

Don’t Update to iOS 10 Yet
If you are already using the PPHelper jailbreak for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3, the last thing you want to do is update to iOS 10 jus yet – you will lose the jailbreak and you will not be able to downgrade to iOS 9.3.3 or earlier.
Install Cydia Eraser
This used to be known as Cydia Impactor but has been renamed to Cydia Eraser. The tool will allow you to restore your iOS device in the event of a problem with the jailbreak but it will let you retain your current iOS version, this means that you can reinstall the jailbreak straight away. A normal restore will automatically update you to the latest iOS version and that means having to go without a jailbreak until one is released for iOS 10.
Save SHSH Blobs
Though it is true that SHSH blobs are no longer usable, there is a chance that a downgrade method will soon come out again and will help you save your jailbreak more easily. So it is no harm in saving your SHSH blobs. You can do it easily using the TinyUmbrella tweak [ext link].
Delete the Tweaks You No Longer Use
This is good practice, something you should do on a regular basis. We are all guilty of downloading Cydia Tweaks [ all links ] that we never use but we don’t delete them. Remove any that you are not using and always take care, when you download a tweak, that you only do it from recognized and safe repositories. Using unknown sources for your tweaks can cause all sorts of issues on your device, not least, malware attacks.
Don’t Touch Your File System
There are those who know what they are doing and then there are those that like to go exploring in places where they don’t know what they are doing. If you manage to delete a system file by accident, you are asking for serious trouble on your iPhone or iPad and will most likely need to restore your device. That means you will lose your jailbreak and will not be able to reinstall it. If you are not an expert at the iOS file system leave it alone.
