A few days back, well-known hacker Luca Todesco, going by the Twitter handle qwertyuiop, released the first jailbreak iOS 10 known as Yalu.

The jailbreak iOS 10 which is still in its start stages is decreased as beta and has issues. It helps limited models of iOS devices including iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPad Pro and may not work as expected due to a large amount of issues that are present in this jailbreak.

In addition, Cydia Substrate is not working yet so not all the tweaks from Cydia will work. Luca has intentionally disabled Substrate to discourage users, except developers, from using this tool. Yet, if you’d like to put your device to test and experience this beta jailbreak iOS 10, then read the step-by-step guide below on how to jailbreak iOS 10.1 – iOS 10.1.1 using Yalu and Cydia Impactor.
