The iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak with Saigon IPA is an Xcode source project.
There hasn’t been any news regarding Apple’s new operating system for months now. The last publicly released jailbreak was for Apple’s old, no longer signed firmware, iOS 10.2.2. That being said, users who prefer deploying jailbroken software are eager for some news regarding new iOS jailbreak. Although there were mentions of iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11.0.1 jailbreaks, the rumors never turned into reality. Still, some work was created and uploaded to Cydia. However, that work was never released publicly as official jailbreak. However things have changed with the iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak with Saigon IPA being released for 64-bit devices.
Saigon is a new tool that is supposed to work as a jailbreak for iOS 10.2.1. The iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak with Saigon IPA is available to the public who still own iPhones or iPads running iOS 10.2.1 and were patient since the last jailbreak regarding this firmware 10 months ago. Unfortunately, there is bad news too.
You can’t download and install the iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak as the previous jailbreak versions. Previous versions have IPA file that is accessible using Cydia. Still, it is expected that the jailbreak will soon be available as a downloadable IPA file. As for now, it is an Xcode source file that needs to be compiled in order to work. This practice is easy for developers who know how to compile and deploy the program. Unfortunately for those who are inexperienced with Xcode, they won’t be able to run the iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak, for now.
Given that it is the said iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak with Saigon IPA that will be a downloadable update soon enough, it won’t be too long until some experienced and knowledgeable developer deploys Saigon in a way that it’s easier to access for all iPhone and iPad owners.
If you are experienced with Xcode, and you still use Apple’s iOS 10.2.1 on a 64-bit device, after you compile the app, the rest of the process should be pretty easy. The following steps are.
- Launch the app
- Tap jailbreak button (similarly like on previous jailbreak versions.)
From there, the jailbreak system should take it over and install the firmware. The home screen looks like from the picture provided.
It is important to note that the iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak with Saigon IPA includes different exploits, including a triple, fetch + ziva + extra_recipe. The developers who compiled and released those exploits are Ian Beer, Adam Donenfield, and Luca Todesco. However, the original 10.2.1 jailbreak was engineered and compiled by Abraham Masri.
