iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Coming: Stefan Esser To Release Tool, Pangu And Luca Todesco Still Silent
Before Apple released iOS 10, famed hacking group Pangu already teased that it had the jailbreak tool. But the update rolled out, and the group was virtually never heard from again. Then Luca Todesco announced his successful jailbreak but then advised against tackling the latest iOS 10.2. But another hacker, Stefan Esser, has powered through and already claimed ownership of a new tool.
As Forbes notes, Todesco's tool was not as sleek as the public is generally used to getting from the likes of Pangu. His tool for jailbreaking iOS 10.1.1 required a re-jailbreak every time the handheld restarted. Nevertheless, some took the plunge and did leave their Pangu-provided iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak behind. This amongst rumors that Pangu was simply holding out on a tool of their own.
Todesco also advised against updating to iOS 10.2 because it would be dangerous to jailbreak. And while the general public has accepted the fact that Apple has implemented some very strict and - evidently - strong security measures, the hacker's advice threw them away. Fortunately, Esser has already claimed a new jailbreak tool is on its way.
"In the end the iOS 10.1.1 signing window closing is not such a big deal, considering that the iOS 10.2 jailbreak is about to hit soon," he tweeted last month. Esser is not a stranger to the scene and has actually built his name before. He has been a party in the jailbreaking scene for quite some time.
Tech Times adds, however, that Esser is not the owner of the tool this time around. He stated in one of his comments that a third-party developer is in charge of an iOS 10.2 jailbreak tool. Whoever it is does not want to be cited at this point, in fear of an over-eager jailbreak group. The publication continues to point out that Esser seems to be the only figure in the loop at this point.
