iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak

The source code for iOS 8.4.1 was released to public couple of months ago by an Italian Jailbreak developer Luca Todesco. It is called “Yalu”. Let’s find out some more about “Yalu”. Luca Todesco is currently working on iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak and he suceeded it on iOS 9.2.1 beta and iOS 9.3 beta. According to reliable sources, there are several constraints in this version of jailbreak. One is because, Yalu is a tethered jailbreak and not an untethered jailbreak. Secondly because, so far only the advanced users with wide technical knowledge who are able to compile the source code and create an executable file may have any chance to jailbreak their device on iOS 8.4.1. But still it will be a tethered jailbreak. Sources also reveal that this is an incomplete jailbreak. This is well proven by the notice that Todesco, the developer, has put up on Twitter which states that Cydia should not be installed on it. Because as you know, Cydia acts as a third party application in jailbreaking your idevice and it plays a vital part jailbreaking any iOS device. So if it doesn’t support Cydia, there is a huge question mark on how we are able to jailbreak our iOS device. Even though it is still debatable when exactly will the jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4.1 will be released, we can expect the full functional jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 from the developer of Yalu, pretty soon as he has already tweeted regarding that by saying “Technically speaking, my i6 is now jailbroken on iOS 8.4.1. Yalu for i6 will be out very soon” So guys that is the current status of Yalu. However, it is advisable, not to update or restore your idevice to iOS 8.4.1 as this source code is reported to contain a number of bugs, it is only partly functional and does not support Cydia at the moment. It is wise to wait patiently for prominent jailbreak developers in the iOS community such as TaiG, Pangu and PP Jailbreak to release the full functional jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 or in that matter for iOS 9. So stay updated with us and receive more news on “Yalu” and its upcoming developments.
