A couple of weeks ago, on June 13th, WWDC 2016 started and one of the first thing revealed was iOS 10. Apple has opted for a feature-rich firmware this time around, revealing a ton of new features and a new app to tempt users into updating in September when iOS 10 is released. What they didn’t talk about was “Rootless”, the rumored new security system that is said to be able to stop jailbreaking in its tracks. According to some sources, “Rootless”, which was also rumored just before iOS 9, will bar anybody, including those who admin privileges, from accessing specific bits of the iOS and this is likely to make it very hard, if not impossible to achieve iOS 10 Jailbreak .

Although Apple didn’t mention the system, a few developers have told us that, after looking at the first of the iOS 10 betas, Apple appears to have taken a hard line concerning security. This is borne out by the rash of jailbreaks we have seen in recent weeks, none of which are being released as proper jailbreaks. In fact, out of all of them, only one has been seen working on a 64-bit device with the rest only being possible on the older 32-bit devices.
- GasGauge 0-day – this one came from Luca Todesco for iOS 9.3.3 beta and iOS 9.3.2 Jailbreak [ext link]. Since examining iOS 10, Todesco has said that the exploit has been patched in iOS 10 and has pasted the code to Ghostbin for all to see if they can use it in a jailbreak. He says Apple has gotten harder on security
- iH8sn0w – came up with an iOS 10 jailbreak [ext link] within days of the beta release but only for 32-bit devices, using an exploit that was first demonstrated a couple of years ago.
- Flying JB – a video uploaded to YouTube shows this jailbreak, from a team of Chinese developers and hackers, but only working on 32-bit devices. The code has been dumped onto GitHub with instructions on how to use it but, because it isn’t a GUI-based tool, it won’t be easy. This team has also confirmed that jailbreaking in the future won’t be as straightforward.

Current iOS 10 Jailbreak Status :
It’s not looking too hopeful at the moment for future jailbreaks but we have yet to hear from Taig or Pangu. These are the two teams we look to for our jailbreaks right now and until they have finished exploring iOS 10, we can’t possibly say for definite that we won’t have a jailbreak. At the end of the day, we are only on the first beta and there are many more to come in the next couple of months – who knows what will happen.
