Jailbreak possibility of iOS 10.2

Also the other competitors of i0n1c, who work for iOS 10.2 Jailbreak are well behind i0n1c and all three teams i0n1c, Pangu and TaiG work together to bring up a real jailbreak solution for iOS 10.2. Just read the brief note below about the collaborative work of the three teams.
When discussing about the iOS 10.2 collaborative development of i0n1c, Pangu and Taig, the three teams carry their own developments for a own iOS 10.2 Jailbreak tool. But the three teams exploited a security issue in phone security and all three teams working together to get access to iOS root for iOS 10.2 Jailbreak
A senior engineer of team Taig stated that "By passing phone security locks through the control is still possible and Apple is yet to find a way to remedy it". But the Jailbreak lovers are more interested in knowing if there will or will not be a jailbreak tool for iOS 10.2. Well here it seems jailbreak is possible for iOS 10.2, as an unthetered jailbreak tool. Jailbreak developers might be able to exploit the known issue given out by Apple about its CFNetwork Cookies.
Also we will keep posting about the ongoing iOS 10.2 jailbreak project and all the iOS 10.2 Jailbreak related information of other jailbreak developers via i0n1c.com and keep in touch with us for more information about iOS 10.2 Jailbreak.
iOS 10.2 Dev betas
It is interesting to see how the jailbreak community will react to this latest iOS 10.2 Developer betas. The last known jailbreak was performed on a iPhone 7 plus running iOS 10.1, though not publicly available, it gives hope to all jailbreak lovers who wait anxiously for that latest jailbreak tool for iOS 10.2. Also as per the rumors the jailbreak access point of iOS 10.2 is still accesible in iOS 10.2 developer beta 2.
iOS 10.2 Dev Beta 1
Apple has now started focusing on an update to its iOS 10, with the release of iOS 10.2 Beta 1 which is a developer version. Also Apple released iOS 10.2 developer beta 2 recently. Apple is making many changes to give the user a better experience through its new OS but the company continuously prevents the latest iOS version by jailbreaking.
iOS 10.2 Dev Beta 2
With iOS 10.2 developer beta2, Apple’s concern for your safety will now allow an user to press the power button 5 times which will send out an SOS message. SOS works in countries such as Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, UK, and US but will not be available for any unlisted countries.
iOS 10.2 Dev Beta 3
Apple keeps the momentum going with the release of iOS 10.2 beta 3. What’s interesting to note is that many features that were previously available in the iOS 10.2 beta 2 are no longer available in beta 3. For instance the SOS function which was previously available worldwide has now been removed to include only for India, this maybe for testing purposes only before releasing it worldwide and the Video app is no longer available and is replaced with a TV app (This change is only for the US).
Also Apple has decided to spread a little love with its new "Send with Love" feature on iMessage and the TV app is revamped to choose cellular data for playback and to choose streaming quality over Wi-Fi or a cellular network. The TV app also supports the "Up next" feature which keeps track of all that you watch by saving the place you last watched or recommending episodes across multiple devices.
Other than the improvements to the apps, there does not seem to be any major security or stability improvements which is what iOS 10.2 jailbreak users are most keen on. A public jailbreak tool is being looked forward to even as the publicly available iOS 10.1.1 has been jailbroken.
iOS 10.2 Dev Beta 4, 5 and 6
In a matter of a couple of weeks Apple released 4 new beta versions of iOS 10.2. All these beta versions were small updates with almost no added features which means that it could only be simple bug fixes. A step by step look at the latest beta versions will be quite interesting to look at:
- iOS 10.2 Beta 4 - The SOS feature is still made available only in India and this beta version resulted in the phone being considerably slowed down. In addition the TV app was tweaked to make the artwork appear with more precision and clarity.
- iOS 10.2 Beta 5 - The problem of the phone being slow was fixed in this beta version what was fixed though is the problem of the phone crashing when a video was being played on iMessage causing the phone to lock up, requiring a hard reboot.
- iOS 10.2 beta 6 - This too was a bug fix, but it was seen that the TV widget was buggy not displaying anything on the surface, however what Apple did manage was to expand the TV provider list made available.
iOS 10.2 Dev beta 7
The LAST beta version iOS 10.2 beta 7 fixes a few minor bugs, when using this beta version is so refined that it feels like using the publicly available iOS 10.2. This beta version could be the final and the next step for Apple could be a publicly available iOS 10.2. However the SOS feature is still made available only in India, (all the more reason to jailbreak iOS 10.2).
