The jailbreak will use a Kernel and Root exploit just released by Project Zero Team.
This morning Todesco tweeted, "There is a high chance I will take up whatever project 0 drops and write a full jailbreak on top of it. stay on 10.1.1, especially on i7"
He followed up, noting that "what I will be doing is provide a patch on top of Ian’s code that removes his post-exploitation stuff"
Additionally, Todesco indicated that his code will not be opensourced and will very difficult to reverse.
"I will not be opensourcing that and it will be heavily obfuscated. You’re not losing anything: the code is basically unreadable lol."
Todesco has successfully jailbroken the iPhone 7 already. He has demonstrated a jailbreak of the device on iOS 10.0.1 and iOS 10.1.1.
If you are still on iOS 10.1.1 we recommend staying on this firmware if you want to jailbreak in the near future.
