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?

jailbreak works on iphone 6, but they fail to mention that appsync dont work on ios 10.2 and will boot loop when installed. DO NOT INSTALL APPSYNC, wait for update. just get your iOS on 10.2.

Really?

Jail broke my iPad and seriously the tweak compatibility is horrifying, Jailbreak will unfortunately be dead very soon in my opinion. I'm honestly looking to switch to the Google Pixel XL from my iPhone 7 Plus. The functionality of android nougat is leaps and bounds better than iOS 10. I've gotten so frustrated I honestly don't even think I will miss iMessage that much at this point.

you must make a turorial how to re-jailbreak with an newer beta

What happens if I do not re-jailbreak after restarting my iPhone? Will all tweaks be disabled? What about apps that use appsync?
Nrosado
Nrosado - January 31, 2017 at 4:24pm
Yes, all apps installed from Cydia will be unavailable. You'll need to run yalu102.
