Luca Todesco has made clear that his Yalu iOS 10.2 jailbreak will be finalized soon and eventually support will be expanded to all 64-bit devices, the iPhone 7 series including. Such scenario appears to be playing out in no time as Cydia creator Saurik quietly deployed an upgraded version of his work.

Cydia, of course, is the place to get the jailbreak tweaks and apps necessary for optimal experience on liberated iPhones and iPads and last week Saurik, also known as Jay Freeman, bumped up the tool to deliver better performance and fix bug issues. With version 1.1.29, Cydia can now do better for jailbreak fans, iDownloadBlog.com reported.

Among the notable improvements is the ability to better filter the contents found on the indispensable jailbreak companion. Thanks to the improved APT, which essentially drives up the app's user interface, Cydia "can now filter files that you do and don't need more efficiently," the report said.

Also, Cydia's sorting capability has improved for both the English and Chinese versions of the application. Saurik's tweaks resulted too to faster loading time and jump applies universally, iDB added on its report.

In the stability area, Saurik provided fixes by issuing version 1.1.30 and one clear benefit cited by users is that the issue on installing purchased items has been resolved.

All told, Cydia v. 1.1.30 is highly recommended for all jailbreak fans, according to iDB, adding that "if you haven't already installed it, you should launch Cydia, refresh your sources, and install it whenever you have the chance to."

Now seeing Saurik hard at work on his valuable contributions to the jailbreak cause only reinforced the belief that as promised the dev will help in finalizing the iOS 10.2 jailbreak that Todesco has created. Specifically, Saurik hinted recently that he's trying to figure out on how to do away with the 7-day certification issue of the jailbreak tool.

The Cydia creator teased that a solution on the problem is nearing completion and if true users will no longer have to re-jailbreak their devices every reboot. It seems that on this mission, Saurik is collaborating with other developers and rumors say Todesco and Team Pangu are part of the effort.

For his part, Todesco has indicated that work on the Yalu jailbreak will be wrapped up soon and the goal is to make the tool run at least on all 64-bit devices. The hacker assured that eventually the iPhone 7 will be supported.

At the same time, Todesco declared that once iOS 10.2 jailbreak has been finalized, he certainly will take a break from the jailbreak scene but not before the JB tool release has been completed.
