Not only that Luca Todesco's Yalu iOS 10.2 jailbreak solution will soon work on all 64-bit devices, the iPhone 7 series including, but a pestering problem on the tool will also be resolved soon. According to Cydia creator Saurik, the 7-day certificate problem plaguing the Yalu JB tool will become history in the coming days.

Saurik, according to iDownloadBlog.com, was talking about the 7-day certificate expiration of the Yalu jailbreak. A workaround on the issue is to undergo the re-jailbreak process and to re-sign the certificate but if the latest statement of Saurik on the matter is to be believed, all these hassles will be done away with, and real soon.

"Saurik appears to confirm here that he is now working on a much more interesting solution to the certification issue," the report said, pointing to the Cydia maker's recent post on Reddit. At the same time, the dev, also known as Jay Freeman, also advised to stay clear of the so-called fixes circulating on the web. These third-party hacks have been labeled as downright harmful and must be avoided.

While Saurik has yet to indicate when exactly the fix is coming out, iDB is convinced that the solution will be provided in matter of few days or within a week. In fact, the dev even hinted that for the project he has decided to collaborate with a few unidentified hackers, whose identity he refused to divulge for now.

"To protect them from an onslaught of attention on this topic," was the reason given by Saurik for the non-disclosure.

While the likely source of help could be the Yalu creator himself, Todesco was not saying anything specific on the subject. But he appears to be on the loop when he recently tweeted: "A solution for the 7 day cert is seemingly in the works."

Also, Todesco warned jailbreak fans to listen to Saurik and keep a safe distance from the available but untested workarounds on the same problem. Best to stick with the safe tools like the Cydia Impactor, which Todesco said will be replaced by Saurik's solution in "another week or so."

Of note is the likelihood that with the 7-day signing issue of the Yalu jailbreak getting the much-awaited fix, Todesco will also expand the JB tool's coverage of 64-bit devices. That would mean a build of the iOS 10.2 jailbreak for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be released soon.
