Posted December 22, 2016 at 8:00am by iClarified
These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone on iOS 10.1.1 using Yalu and Cydia Impactor for Mac.

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. iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, or iPad Pro on iOS iOS 10.1/10.1.1.

Step Two

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

Does this solve the Cydia Substrate issue?

Substrate is disabled so it don't brick your device. There is a "substrate enabler" tweak. Just google it. I wouldn't mess with it thought. I'm on a 7plus and am waiting for something more stable.

Ok, warning was ment for me. Did all above as written. Nothing was working, so I tried to get back on a clean 10.1.1 iOS. Was not working. I think I am stuck and must update to 10.2..:( Hopefully that jb will be found soon! Or a way to remove the JB and getting back to 10.1.1
