We had recently covered up, what are the benefits and reasons to jailbreak your Apple iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus?
It’s important to know the devices that are currently supported by the jailbreak, as well as the firmware versions that are compatible with it. It is also important to note that the jailbreak is beta and semi-untethered in nature, which means bugs are to be expected and you will have to put it back in jailbreak mode after every reboot.
With all that out of the way, here is what you need for jailbreaking iOS 10-10.1.1 on a supported iPhone 7 / 7 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus or iPad device:
Steps to Jailbreak iOS 10.0.1 – 10.1.1 – iPhone 7 / 7 Plus / iPad

- Yalu iOS jailbreak IPA file by Luca Todesco & Cydia Impactor which you can download from here

How to Jailbreak iOS 10.0.1 – 10.1.1 iPhone 7 / 7 Plus / iPad?
Step 1: Connect your supported Apple iPhone or iPad to your computer using a Lightning USB cable.
Step 2: Take a complete backup of your data using iTunes which you can return to in case anything goes wrong during or after jailbreak. This step will help you restore your iPhone back to original state, in case of any error.
Step 3: You have to disable Passcode Touch ID on your device from Settings > Touch ID & Passcode.
Step 4: Now again you need to disable Find My iPhone on your device from Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone.
Step 5: Launch Cydia Impactor App on your Computer
Step 6: Drag and drop the Yalu IPA file on Cydia Impactor on your computer.
Step 7: Now Enter your Apple ID when Cydia Impactor asks for it.
Step 8: Now wait for Cydia Impactor to install the jailbreak app on .
Step 9: Once installed, disconnect your device from computer and head to Settings > General > Profile(s) & Device Management or General > Device Management and hit Trust and then Trust again on the certificate you used to install this jailbreak app.
Step 10: Now launch the “mach_portal” jailbreak app from the Home screen and wait 10 to 15 seconds for it to do its thing. It will basically show a white screen, and then close itself, after which Cydia will show up on the Home screen.
If Cydia doesn’t show up on the Home screen, reboot or hard reboot your Apple iPhone or iPad and it should be there. That’s it! Your device is now jailbroken with Cydia installed.
Since this is a semi-untethered jailbreak, it means you will have to put your iPhone 7 or iPad in jailbreak mode after every reboot. To do this, simply repeat the Step 10 above to get into jailbroken state again.
Using free Apple ID to jailbreak your iPhone, the jailbreak will expire after seven days, after which you will have to re-jailbreak it again from Step 5 onwards. No data, settings or tweaks will be lost during the re-jailbreak process. If you have full developer IDs then you can run it without re-jailbreaking for up to a year.
