Yalu Jailbreak

Luca Todesco has provided iOS users with an early Christmas gift in the form of a jailbreak. He has called it Yalu Jailbreak and this is one of the very rare times that he has shared jailbreak exploits for public use, preferring to keep them for his own personal use. He has told us that this may be the only jailbreak we will see for a while but, before you head to the steps to download it, there are a few caveats to the jailbreak you need to know .

Before you Jailbreak :

  • Yalu is a beta jailbreak and this means, as betas often are, it is going to be somewhat unstable and buggy. Luca Todesco advises waiting until it has been stabilized before you download it, leaving it to developers to look at first
  • You can’t install Yalu jailbreak the simple way that we are used to installing jailbreaks. Instead, you must download Cydia Impactor first and side load the jailbreak onto your device. You will also need an Apple ID to do this
  • Last, be aware that this is a semi untethered jailbreak, something we are getting used to , untethered jailbreaks seem to be hard to come by these days.

How to Downloads and Install Yalu Jailbreak :

  1. Download Yalu Jailbreak [ .ipa file ] onto your computer
  2. Download Cydia Impactor onto your computer
  3. Back up the date on your iOS device through iTunes and | or iCloud 
  4. Connect your iOS device to your computer
  5. Open Cydia Impactor
  6. Find the .ipa file and then drag and drop it into Cydia Impactor 
  7. Input your Apple ID when asked to 
  8. Cydia Impactor will begin the process of side loading Yalu onto your device
  9. When it has finished, disconnect your device and go to Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management on your device. 
  10. Locate the app that was side loaded and tap on Trust beside it
  11. On your home screen, tap the icon that says mach_portal and wait for your device to respring. 
  12. You should now have Cydia on your home screen and the jailbreak has been successful 

There are two things to note here :

  1. If you are using a free Apple account, the certificate will expire every 7 days and you will have to do step 5 onwards each time
  2. Because it is semi untethered, you will need to do Step 11 every time you reboot your device to reload the jailbreak

  1. Man that’s so awesome that this hacker was able to jailbreak 9.2. Kudos! But wish this person shared it. I’m pretty sure ios users would’ve paid for that jailbreak

  2. At this point in time it seems that every iOS that comes out will be jailbroken, it’s a shame that some jailbreakers are now holding out on sharing information and releasing the JB. Seems that they want a big pay day for their jailbreaking talents!!!.

    The JUDGE

  3. Check out project zero by Ian Beer over at Google. Spend some time studying the code and voila you can have 9.2 jail broken and running. Stabilize/properly race for arm64 and voila again. I’m in a 4S 9.2 atm

  4. Curious…? Do most if not all of you guys not know how to read or just lazy or just entitled. Tea my post earlier about Ian Beer. Now you can even check a verified blog of pangu. No joke 100% legit, go check project zero and do a little studying. Use the almost 100% pre written code, bundle in Cydia and dependencies you wish and pop 9.2 yourself. Instead of spending weeks complaining, spend 6 hours to study write a few lines and enjoy your own jailbreak. Like you all day anyhow, heck with the developers who spends dozens to hundred of man hours developing a public jailbreak for free just to get hit with slander criticism and demands. If I was them if never release either. I.E. Who is going to clean the house do dishes and take out garbage every day just to be ridiculed. Put the shoe on the other foot people. I’m rocking that 9.2 with r00t like no tomorrow. I learned rather than b1tch and whine and cry.

  5. You the man Luda! I did everything the tuturiol says,I get the Mach portal icon but when I click it the device resprings but no cydia icon appears. Any suggestions?

  6. my phone just shows a white screen for 15 minutes and doesn’t spring when i tap match_portal … so no cydia apearring on my device …

    any clue ?

  7. my iphone6 isn’t doing a respring after tapping match_portal.
    it is only showing a white screen and my clock isn’t running ..
    any ideas?

  8. i got stuck after tapping match_portal -- it shows a white screen , nothing happens for more than 15 minutes .. i have a registered developer account running iOS 10.2 (14C92) on my iPhone 6

    any ideas ?
