Jailbreak began to seem like an impossible option for Apple users lately. The latest iOS versions appeared to be impossible to crack and no developers managed to come forward with a new jailbreak. That is why it is good news to hear that we finally have an iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak for all 64-bit iPads and iPhones. The hacker is named Abraham Masri and the jailbreak is named Saïgon.
Apple blocked the previous attempts
The Yalu jailbreak suffered a loss back in January when Apple released iOS 10.2.1. The new version managed to get rid of all the vulnerabilities that were needed for the Yalu jailbreak. Then, back in February, Apple stopped signing iOS 10.2.1 which meant that it became impossible for users to downgrade back to it. This also means that you will be able to use the new Saïgon jailbreak only if you are currently running on the iOS 10.2.1.
The Saïgon jailbreak
Here is how you can get the new Saïgon jailbreak:
- Use Xcode in order to create a Saïgon.ipa file.
- Make sure that you have Cydia Impactor than open it. Connect it to your iOS 10.2.1 device.
- Drag the ipa file in the Cydia Impactor window.
- Enter your Apple ID and your password.
- Go back to your device. Head over to Settings, select General and go to Profiles & Device Management.
- Trust the new certificate > open Saïgon
- Tap “jailbreak” and you should be done.
This is the list of devices that support the new jailbreak: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad Pro, iPod Touch (6th Generation)
