Yalu Jailbreak

After waiting for several weeks, we finally have a new jailbreak. It is called Yalu Jailbreak and it was released to the public from an unexpected source. While we have been waiting for Taig and Pangu to come through, Italian hacker and developer Luca Todesco has stepped up to the plate and given us what we wanted. However, it does come with several caveats, one of which being that this could be the only jailbreak we get for some time as jailbreaking seems to be getting harder to do.

Before you Jailbreak :

Below are some of the other things you need to be aware of before you jailbreak your device with Yalu:

  • It is a beta jailbreak [ at the time of writing this article ] and is likely to be glitchy and unstable. Because of this, Luca Todesco has advised that we should leave it for developers to look at for now and wait for an update that stabilizes it somewhat
  • Downloading Yalu is not as simple as it used to be. You will need to make use of a tool called Cydia Impactor to side load the jailbreak onto your iOS device and for that you need a valid Apple ID
  • Lastly, this is a semi-untethered jailbreak and this means having to reactivate it every time you reboot your iOS device

How to Downloads and Install Yalu Jailbreak :

  1. On your PC or Mac, download the .ipa file for Yalu Jailbreak [ext link]
  2. Also download Cydia Impactor
  3. Use iTunes and iCloud to back the data up on your iPhone or iPad 
  4. Keeping your device connected to your computer, open Cydia Impactor and then locate the .ipa file for Yalu jailbreak
  5. Now drag the file and drop it into the Cydia Impactor window
  6. Wait for Cydia to recognize your device and then input your Apple ID when asked to 
  7. Now wait for Cydia Impactor to sign the Yalu certificate and side load the jailbreak onto your iOS device
  8. When it is done, disconnect your iOS device and open Settings > General > Device Management on your iPhone or iPad 
  9. Tap on Trust beside the side-loaded app
  10. Exit Settings and you will see an icon named mach_portal on your home screen , tap on it  
  11. Wait while the jailbreak is completed and when your device resprings Cydia will be in your home screen 
  12. The jailbreak has been successful you can use it as you normally would 

As we said be aware that it is likely to be buggy. Before you download anything else, head into Cydia and download Cydia Eraser [ext link]. That way, if you need to remove the jailbreak, you can do so without restoring your device and losing the chance to jailbreak in the future
