These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone on iOS 10.1.1 using Yalu and Cydia Impactor for Windows.

Please note that currently this jailbreak is in extreme beta and only has only been tested to support the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, and iPad Pro on iOS iOS 10.1/10.1.1. Do not attempt this if you need your device working as the procedure may not succeed and you might have to restore your device. The jailbreak is currently being updated and will eventually work with additional devices including the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. iOS 10.2 support will be difficult to achieve.

Additionally, Cydia Substrate is not working yet. Your tweaks will not work. So again, you may want to hold off until yalu exits the beta stage.

Step One
Make sure to backup your device using iCloud or iTunes.

Step Two
Download the latest Yalu jailbreak IPA from here and Cydia Impactor from here and save them to a folder on your computer. If you have a TSMC chip iPhone make sure to download the appropriate yalu ipa. Click here for instructions on How to Check if Your iPhone 6s Has a A9 Chip From Samsung or TSMC.

Your iPhone will now reboot and you'll have Cydia on your SpringBoard! Congratulations, you're jailbroken!

After each restart you will need to relaunch yalu (mach_portal) as this is a semi-tethered jailbreak. After relaunching yalu (mach_portal), you'll be able to launch Cydia and enjoy your jailbreak.
