Apple has been trying to block all known exploits in iOS software with regular security updates such as the kernel patch protection (KPP). Despite adequate security measures, the iOS 10.1 jailbreak is running on a single unpatched exploit that’s considered to be “stable”.
The new jailbreak assumes great importance since the KPP implementation is known to cause instability issues with unrefined jailbreaks. According to analysts, it is absolutely essential to implement a substitute library that can replicate the services of Cydia.
According to reputed download portal, @ijapija00 has employed a completely different approach to enable jailbreaks. It will enable to run without any need to update the Cydia services to work on the newest operating system.
If you inspect the jailbreak video, you will know that the hacker has failed to reveal the iOS version via Settings > General > About section. In the video, the hacker has made use of a third-party system query app to reveal the software version. This is not the standard practice followed with official jailbreak demonstrations ahead of their final public release.
According to reports, the new iOS 10.1 jailbreak is semi-untethered. This means it requires a specialized jailbreak app to run on the device’s Home screen. This will unlock jailbreak access after each reboot. You need not have to connect your smartphone to the computer to perform the jailbreak.
