    Congratulations, your iPhone is jailbroken!


  • It’s noteworthy that this jailbreak is still very much beta due to which it will be buggy and not everything will work on it.
  • Cydia and other jailbroken apps are visible on the home screen.
  • Since it’s a semi-untethered jailbreak, you will need to relaunch “yalu 102” app after each restart. After that, you can relaunch Cydia and enjoy your jailbreak.
  • If you reboot your device after 7 days of signing, you will need to resign the app because temporarily the certificate lasts 7 days only. Paid Apple developers, however, will get a certificate that lasts 1 year.

Update Yalu

  1. Reboot your device to revert back to “non-jailbroken” status.
  2. Delete the old Yalu from the target device.
  3. Follow the jailbreak steps mentioned above to sideload the Yalu.ipa with Cydia Impactor. The tweaks and settings will be restored as soon as re-jailbreak is finished.
