iOS 10 Jailbreak Release, News & Update: Pangu Launching Jailbreak Tool Along With Final iOS 10.2 Version; Luca Todesco With Working Tool?
Pangu has been ripe to deliver the next iOS 10 jailbreak tool in the coming days. This news has many iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch fans delighted as the famous hacking team has been silent for months. With Apple releasing iOS 10.2 beta 5, researchers have already found means to bypass the Activation Lock protection in the software.
While it is typical for Apple to release updates to their software quite often, the iOS 10.2 public beta 5 was released at such a surprising speed. This has now been the second public beta release in a week, which means that the final version of iOS 10.2 is just around the corner. With this speed, it has been predicted that Apple releases the iOS 10.2 by Monday next week.
With the release of the final iOS 10.2 version, Pangu will be releasing their jailbreak tool as well. While the famous hacking group has actually been really silent for many months, fans still believe that the team will be able to provide a working jailbreak tool.
As previously reported, Pangu has been working on a modified version of iOS 10 and will only be releasing the finalized jailbreak tool along with the iOS 10.2. This is to avoid Apple being able to patch the glitches being exploited by the hack, which would in turn make the effect last longer.
According to a website dedicated for iOS 10 jailbreaks, there is a certain type of bug in iOS 10 that allows the bypass of the Activation Lock in the software. This could have been the break for the jailbreaking team.
This bug had reportedly been seen first with iOS 10.1, and has since been patched by Apple. However, a new clip has surfaced, proving the bug still exists even up to iOS 10.1.1. This could also have been the same exploit used by another hacking entity, Luca Todesco, when he confirmed to have jailbroken an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.1.1.
With this trajectory of both Pangu and Apple in their seemingly hairline race, the iOS 10 jailbreak tool will soon be released. Fans in the jailbreaking community could only hope that Pangu could finally pull a fast one on Apple.
