Pangu has always been one of our hardest working jailbreak teams but we haven’t heard a great deal from them since their last jailbreak, PPHelper for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3. But not anymore, as they released iOS 10.2 jailbreak Pangu today. Since Apple is releasing a steady stream of updates to iOS 10 with the current version being iOS 10.2, its been hard for Pangu Team to catch up to its jailbreak releases , so far.

Pangu iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Installer Release Date ?
As it is such a new release, Pangu is going to need some time to look into iOS 10.2 firmware, to see if Apple has patched up previous vulnerabilities or if there are any new ones for use in a jailbreak installer. It could be argued that they did this when the iOS 10.2 download [ ext link ] was released but the final public version may be completely different and requires further investigation. There is another argument doing the rounds, that if Luca Todesco can manage to produce a jailbreak within days of iOS 10 being released, why can’t Pangu ?

The simple answer is that producing a jailbreak for one iOS device is not the same as producing one for millions of devices. Todesco finds vulnerabilities and exploits them as part of his security research work and he does this regularly. He will never release his work to the public and we should never see his work as positive proof that a jailbreak is on the way. Pangu has to come up with an iOS 10.2 jailbreak that is going to work on all active iOS 10.2 devices in a safe way. There are also two other factors that we need to take into account.
iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Road Blocks :
The first is Rootless, Apple’s new security system that they claim will stop all jailbreaking. While it may not be able to do that, it certainly seems to have slowed things down somewhat. The system is designed to block anyone, even admin users, from accessing certain iOS files which, in theory, should stop Pangu from being able to exploit the vulnerabilities. However, we know that it can be down so it is just a matter of time. The second factor is the Bug Bounty program, a brand new scheme from the Cupertino company, designed to pay researchers up to $200,000 for finding vulnerabilities and reporting them. For some people, that sum of money will be enough to tempt them into giving up the vulnerabilities before Pangu has a chance to get to work with them.
