Don’t Upgrade! iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Is Coming
The latest versions of iOS have managed to block the flaws that allowed jailbreaking on the iPhone and iPad. Apple seemed, at last, to be able to prevent these processes, but according to new information, iOS 10.2 may be about to have a way of circumventing security measures. Finally, the jailbreak for iOS 10.2 is coming.
For now, only iOS 10.1 has methods for jailbreaking, and even in that version is presenting problems, with several tools that are available in Cydia not to work properly.
But everything seems to have changed, according to Luca Todesco, one of the best-known researchers in the field. He has been able to break iOS 10.2 and, within days, will present a tool to give everyone access. The jailbreak of iOS 10.2 is finally coming.
My fix for the issues in the 10.1 jailbreak will be to add support to 10.2. It will however not work on iPhone 7 on 10.2, just 10 and 10.1.

If the good news is for most iOS users, those who use iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will still have to wait. According to Luca Todesco, the correction that will launch is not recommended for these new smartphones. It can be used, but in a limited way with errors and failures.
The likely cause for this scenario will be in the absence of some of the vulnerabilities used to gain full access to iOS and thus apply the jailbreak.
It remains for iOS users to expect Luca Todesco to release the new version, allowing them to upgrade to the latest version of iOS while maintaining the jailbreak and applications installed by Cydia.
