You Can Now Jailbreak iOS 10.2 on iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 Using Yalu102
Yalu102 iOS 10.2 jailbreak has been updated with support for iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 devices. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still not supported.
Good News for Jailbreak Fans as You Can Now Liberate Your iPad Air 2 & iPad mini 4 on iOS 10.2
The Yalu jailbreak is currently in beta, with support for stability and new devices being added on an almost daily basis. Recently, the solution was updated for iOS 10.2, and a few moments after its release, a handful of devices gained support for the jailbreak. Today, things are being taken further with the release of Yalu102 beta 7, which adds support for two important devices: iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4. It should be kept in mind that Yalu102 currently does not support iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but we are hoping this would change in the near future. Whenever it does though, you will hear about it from us.
It should be explicitly mentioned here that Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.2 just recently. This means that if you were sitting on iOS 10.2.1, and were hoping to downgrade to iOS 10.2, it's no longer possible. Once you have made the jump onto a newer firmware version and the signing window for an older one is closed, you are stuck on the newer software for good. This is only important if you are a jailbreak user, but if you don't care much about it much, then you shouldn't be bothered at all.
But, if you are currently on iOS 10.2, then please, take the time to save your SHSH2 blobs right away. It won't take more than a few minutes, and will ensure downgrading to unsigned firmware in the near future. There's no way you want to lose your status being on iOS 10.2 at all, especially if you are a jailbreak user.
Make sure you download the latest version of the jailbreak from here, and follow the guide posted below on how to liberate your device.
There's a long way to go until Yalu102 sheds its beta tag. But whenever that happens, it'll be a joyful day for a lot of users out there. After all, using an iOS device free from Apple's shackles is an experience that's like no other.
