Before starting I want to share some important information
Firstly: You should always back up your device because if something goes wrong, you can restore from the backup
This is a semi-tethered jailbreak. Meaning that if you restart your device, you will have to rejailbreak your phone via the app on your phone
This only works for 64 bit devices. If you have anything below an iPhone 5S, your device is a 32 bit
Currently the following devices are supported. Iphone 6s, 6splus, 7, 7plus, and iPad 2.
If you want to jailbreak iOS 10.2, which unfortunately works on all 64 bit devices except iPhone 7 and 7plus, refer to this guide
Steps: I am doing this on a windows computer using jaws. This can also be done on a mack
and download the IPA.
and download the latest version of Cydia Impactor
plug in your device and unzip and run Impactor
open windows explorer and browse to the directory where you have stored the Yalu IPA.
once the Yalu IPA is selected route the jaws cursor to the PC cursor.
Use jaws key + control + num pad slash to select the Yalu IPA for dragging.
Alt tab to the Cydia Impactor window.
Use the jaws cursor to find the title bar of the cydia impactor window.
Use the jaws key + control + num pad slash keystroke to drop the Yalu IPA on to the title bar of cydia impactor.
A new dialog will pop up but it will not have focus by default. Alt tab to the new dialog and enter your Apple ID information.
If your phone is already connected it should sign the IPA and upload it to the phone. You do not need to use your primary Apple ID that you use on the phone to sign the IPA but I did do this. You need to repeat this signing process every 7 days unless you have a paid developer account, however you only need to re-run the jailbreak application on your phone if you reboot. If you do not reboot your phone you can stay jailbroken for longer than seven days.
After that is all out of the way, go to settings, general, and device management. Trust the profile with your email on it.
When you open the app, your device should restart and Cydia should be on your screen. If cydia isn't showing up for you, reboot your device and re launch the app. Keep on rebooting and re launching until Cydia shows up on your homescreen.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask
Remember, this is a semi-tethered jailbreak which means if you reboot your device, you will have to rerun the app
