Just a few short days ago, iOS 10 download [ext link] was released to the public, following the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. At the moment we are waiting for news from Pangu or Taig jailbreak teams that they have managed to build a working jailbreak for the new firmware but, while we wait, proof has been spotted that iOS 10.0.1 Jailbreak has been achieved.

As usual, Luca Todesco is the developer providing us with that proof. Within a couple of days of the new release, he uploaded a video showing an iPad jailbroken on iOS 10 and has now followed that with a photo of an iPhone 7 running Cydia 1.1.26 [image below] , making him the first to ostensibly jailbreak the brand new iPhone. The photo was posted as an attachment on Luca’s Twitter account, under his handle of @qwertyoruiopz [ext link] for anyone who wants to take a look at it, with a tagline that read, “obligatory Cydia screenshot”. The iPhone 7 is one of the new black ones and is running Cydia v1.1.26 .

Although there will undoubtedly be the disbelievers among us, those who say that the photo has been put through Photoshop or some other photo editing software, most people are well aware of Todesco’s considerable skill set and his long history or hacking and developing for the iOS firmware. This tells us that, although a video hasn’t been released showing this particular jailbreak, it is the real deal. What you do have to keep in mind is that this jailbreak will never be released to the public. The developer has proven time and time again that he can find any vulnerability in the iOS firmware and exploit it to get a jailbreak that works but he does it only as part of his mobile security research, never as a way of providing jailbreaks for the public.
iOS 10.0.1 Jailbreak Release Date :
Having said that, he has proved that iOS 10 can be jailbroken despite Apple attempting to make it harder and it’s now down to Taig or Pangu to provide us with that working jailbreak. It may be that they already have the vulnerabilities or it may be that they work with Luca Todesco to produce it but one thing is for sure, they will come up with a working jailbreak at some point. They are going to want to ensure that it works on as wide a range of iOS devices as possible although we should expect it to only work on the 64 bit devices, like PPHelper did.
