Just a few days ago, well known hacker iH8Sn0w released a new video showing that he has achieved an iOS 10 jailbreak. In the video, he is seen using an iPhone 5 jailbroken on iOS 10 with Cydia running. It is believed that he used an iBoot exploit to untether jailbreak the 32-bit device.
Now, famed Italian hacker Luca Todesco, aka qwertyoruiop, claims to have jailbroken iOS 10 on a 64-bit device. He posted a snapshot of Cydia on Twitter which says that the app isn’t optimized for iOS 10 and is not updated for 64-bit devices.
Luca mentions that he has used new exploits in order to jailbreak iOS 10 and that it is userland-based rather than low level entry exploit. This news comes just a few weeks after he stated that Apple has “gone hard on security in iOS 10″ and that all the jailbreak exploits found in iOS 9.3.3 beta and lower no longer work in iOS 10. As a result, he publicly released a jailbreak exploit called “GasGuage” that is said to work in iOS 9.3.3 beta, iOS 9.3.2 and lower.
Just like he didn’t plan to release a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3.2, it is unlikely that he will release a jailbreak for iOS 10. Even if he plans to do so, he will mostly hold it off until iOS 10 is released to the public. The reason is because iOS 10 is still in beta and if he releases a jailbreak now then Apple will quickly patch the exploit before iOS 10 is released to the public.
If you’re already jailbroken or on a firmware that is jailbreakable, we recommend that you refrain from updating unless you don’t plan on jailbreaking. Until a working jailbreak tool is released for iOS 9.3.2 or iOS 10, it is best to stay on your current jailbreakable firmware.
Additionally, jailbreak teams are mostly likely to hold off a jailbreak release until Apple officially rolls out the iOS 10 firmware to the public. Until then, stay tuned with us as we keep you updated on the latest jailbreak news for iOS 9.3.2 and iOS 10.
