Famed hacker iH8Sn0w has released a new YouTube video showing the first ever untethered jailbreak for iOS 10 beta 1. In the video, he is seen using an iPhone 5 running on iOS 10 with Cydia installed. As a proof, he shows the firmware version in Settings and removes the stock Mail app to show that the phone is indeed running on iOS 10.
Since he is using an iPhone 5, which is a 32-bit device, it is most likely that he is using a zero-day iBoot exploit which is capable of jailbreaking every 32-bit device till date.
Unfortunately, users shouldn’t get their hopes up because it is very unlikely that he will release a working jailbreak tool to the public. Last year, he released a similar teaser video for iOS 9 jailbreak but didn’t plan on publishing the software.
Following the release of iOS 10, another well-known Italian hacker Luca Todesco, aka qwertyoruiop, took to twitter to state that Apple has “gone hard on security in iOS 10″ and that his private jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 and lower no longer works in iOS 10. As a result, he publicly released a jailbreak exploit called “GasGuage” that works in iOS 9.3.3 beta, iOS 9.3.2 and lower.
Until a jailbreak tool is released for iOS 9.3.2 or iOS 10, we recommend that users who want to keep their tweaks should stay back on iOS 9.3.1 or a lower firmware that is jailbreakable. There’s also a high chance that a jailbreak for iOS 10 will not be released until the firmware is officially rolled out to the public.
We will keep you updated on any further news regarding iOS 10 or iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak.
