Famous jailbreak master Luca Todesco announced recently that the seven-day certificate set by Apple for the iOS 10.2 jailbreak will have a solution.

The Italian jailbreaker confirmed on his Twitter account that a solution is being created, and he asked the public to remain patient. "A solution for the 7 day cert is seemingly in the works, so please bear with Cydia Impactor for another week or so," Todesco tweeted last week. However, it was uncertain if the solution will be coming from Todesco himself or from another developer.

His tweet, however, has strengthened speculations that he is working with fellow jailbreaker Jay Freeman, better known as Saurik, who recently released a public version of the Cydia Impactor 1.1.28, which supports 64-bit devices. Saurik, on the other hand, has also confirmed that he is currently working on a solution to the seven-day certificate. The Cydia also caters to jailbroken iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch units, with its final version compatible to the iOS 10-10.2 Yalu 102 jailbreak, co-released by Todesco and Marco Grassi.

Meanwhile, a report from University Herald confirmed that the Yalu update only works with most of the last-Gen Apple devices. This limitation is caused by the iPhone 7 being very tough to jailbreak, the report said. Additionally, the report also said that Todesco is not very keen on coming up with a software that will cater to the current-Gen handset by Apple, but it clarified that he there may come a time when he will create an update for the Yalu jailbreak for the iPhone 7.

Meanwhile, AppSync Unified developer Karen confirmed in a tweet last week that she had identified the cause of the crash in iOS 10.2 and said that a jailbreak tweak is in the works. In addition, she also cautioned not to install the tweak until an updated version is already available as doing so would result in a boot loop for the device.
