Hi, after I pressed Go in the center of the yalu screen I obtained a "failed, retry" message. What can I do? I'm with IOS 10.2.1 (beta version).

Everything went smoothly up until I tried opening Cydia on my iPhone 6. It just keeps automatically crashing, any suggestions?

I do every thing that's shown here.. Launch Yalu, hit go, but Cydia never pops up on the screen.. I've trusted the app in settings and all that.. Any hints?
