Thanks to Italian hacker and developer Luca Todesco, a successor to mach_portal+yalu based on xerub’s version of Ian Beer’s mach_portal exploit is available. Called extra_recipie+yaluX it’s a further improvement on the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak with changes made to make the jailbreak experience for iPhone 7 owners much smoother. Here’s what you need to know, about this YaluX jailbreak.

YaluX jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1

YaluX Jailbreak For iOS 10.1.1

To start with, this updated jailbreak is available to download right now, and for some its long overdue. Because iPhone 7 owners have been calling for this for a long time, and now that it’s ready. It’s sure to have people scrambling to give it a try. Now if you’ve been holding off trying the older version of this iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak for your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, this release is stable.

That’s according to Todesco, he suggests, it’s a solution that it provide stability. The stability which Yalu102 users have had for some time.

Changelog

As with all changes made to jailbreaking solutions, they are accompanied by changelogs, for which this latest is no different. However, it’s not possible to go into too much detail about what’s new, because there isn’t much information. All that is provided is an insight into the changes Todesco made, which goes as follows:

Extra_recipie+yaluX is the latest incarnation of mach_portal_yalu, which is something we already know. Furthermore, there’s again information we know. And that is, this is a stable iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak for the iPhone 7.

But what about something of value? Fortunately, Todesco does provide a little more information, but it’s not exactly positive.

A Warning

Unfortunately, it seems as though not everything may be as perfect as we first thought! Todesco includes a warning within the changelog, in which he talks about the following potential problem.

Yes, this YaluX iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak will fix all iPhone 7 issues; however, there could be an issue for some with kernel exploits. He says that they could fail when the jailbreaking process is invoked. However, for the vast majority, he expects the process to execute without a problem.

Additionally, he advises users who have a jailbroken device not to run the YaluX Jailbreak. Why? Because it’s not actually a remount, and it doesn’t include substrate support. Now, if you’re not sure what this means, it’s best that you do not attempt to use this solution. Instead, if you have a iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak already running, wait for the next beta release.

Another warning/note, worth mentioning is that although this is a stable solution, it doesn’t include Cydia. And does not remount the filesystem as read-write, which could be a little concerning for some power users. Could this mean that although stability is provided, right now the Yalu X jailbreak Beta 1, is not a worthy successor to mach_portal+yalu? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.

Final Thoughts

While there may ultimately be some issues for some users, it is good to see movement from well-known jailbreakers. As for the stable over no Cydia issue, you could give this a try on your iPhone 7, if experienced. However, if you’re not, we would advise you to wait for Beta 2. Maybe by the time that’s ready, Todesco will have ironed out a few of the issues currently present.
