It has been a week since Apple release iOS 10.2 to the public, not to mention a week with no iOS 10 jailbreak in sight. Pangu and other hacking groups continue to remain mum on one with most giving up.

Hacker Lucas Todesco has been keeping the iOS 10 flame alive though his focus has been on another version – iOS 10.1.1. While most are waiting for an iOS 10 jailbreak, he may have just stumbled on to something sensible.

Apparently, this had to do with a kernel and root exploit originally exposed by developer Ian Beer. The said bug is present on iOS 10.1.1, affirming Todesco’s earlier theory. Hence, most of the Apple Jailbreaking Community may end up sticking to iOS 10.1.1. and hope for an actual jailbreak from Todesco, Forbes reported.

In what could perhaps be the best news tied up to a potential iOS 10 jailbreak, this somehow offsets a previous claim that Todesco issued. As mentioned in a previous post, Todesco admitted that iOS 10 was un-jailbreakable, admitting Yahoo has done a fine job cleaning up the bugs and exploits.

With Pangu and other hacking groups opting to remain silent, waiting on iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak has reinvigorated the wait for some members of the Apple Jailbreaking community. But like before, it would be best to lower expectations with no crack made public for iOS 10 as we speak.

The last working crack was for iOS 9.3.3 by Pangu. Nothing followed thereafter with most believing the Chinese hacking group issuing a crack once iOS 10.2 was out. As of this writing, there is no indication of one coming.

Apple has done its part though Pangu never mentioned anything about an actual date on when they would release iOS 10.2. That could happen this Christmas or maybe in 2017. Then again, there could be no iOS 10 jailbreak coming at all which should disappoint Apple owners relying on the iOS crack.
