Saurik Does Not Want iOS 10.1.1 Jailbreak Users To Install ‘YUCCA Utilities’
The iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak is still young and a work-in-progress. If you have jailbroken your iOS device, you might have come across various issues in Cydia. Not so long ago, some developer released a stashing package called YUCCA Utilities oriented towards iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak. What the package does is it stashes your system to cure the issues in Cydia and low-storage warnings. However, you should give up installing YUCCA Utilities, as warned by Luca Todesco. Let's see some more details on the matter and why the hacker alerts users to avoid installing it.
Luca Might Release iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Soon, Want Users To Avoid Installing YUCCA Utilities
Not just the YUCCA Utilities, but Todesco has warned iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak users to avoid installing any kind of Cydia Substrate enabler. If you're someone who did not know about this, then you might be experiencing some unsurprising issues. The end result of the unaware jailbreak community were blames on Todesco's jailbreak rather than the harmful jailbreak packages that users installed.
Same is the case with YUCCA Utilities. Saurik said that the package is 'broken' and to avoid running into issues, users should restore their devices to iOS 10.2. Yes, this restoring would definitely kill the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak. Therefore, the hacker advises that before restoring, users should wait for Luca to release an iOS 10.2 jailbreak. His statement is as follows:
I am concerned the YUCCA package is so broken the only real recommendation I have is to restore your device to 10.2 (though I’d also recommend waiting until Luca releases a jailbreak and just hope that when that happens iOS 10.2 is still a restorable option).
As for Substrate, I wouldn’t worry too much about anything: I’m pretty certain your “worst case scenario” is to hold down volume up while running a new mach_portal, which will disable Substrate entirely, at which point you can fix any issues you have via Cydia.
While there are several issues in YUCCA Utilities, Saurik also said that the "worst case scenario" will be to put your device in to No Substrate Mode in order to fix any prevailing issues in Cydia. If you're someone who has not jailbreaked your iOS device yet, then we would totally recommend you to be patient and wait for Luca's release of iOS 10.2 jailbreak. We're not sure when the hacker will release it, but what we do know is that he is working to get it out as soon as possible.
