ziVA exploit supports iOS 10.2.1
The developer of Yalu jailbreak, Luca Todesco, has just claimed that an iOS 10.2.1 can be easily achieved.
All the remains to be done is swapping Yalu’s existing exploit with Adam Donenfeld’s ziVA kernel exploit. Here’s what Luca tweeted.
you can literally swap ViewController.m in yalu102 with the new exploit and pass tfp0 to exploit() and its gonna work on 10.2.1 unchanged

As you know, the original Google Project Zero exploit only supports iOS 10-10.2 so we require fresh exploits. It was patched by Apple in iOS 10.2.1, which renders it useless on iOS 10.2.1-10.3.3.
Thankfully, Adam’s exploit works on iOS 10.2.1 firmware and can easily act as a replacement for Ian’s exploit.
Antique Dev tests iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak
Despite his interest, Luca will not be releasing a new jailbreak tool for the community. However, a tweak developer, who goes by the name Antique Dev, is working on porting these exploits to iOS 10.2.1
As of now, Antique Dev is testing his upcoming jailbreak to ensure it works smoothly on all devices. The private beta has already been uploaded and is being tested by Tigris Dev Team members.
So all our hope now lies on Antique Dev and his motley crew of hackers. If there’s still fire in dying embers, we will know soon enough.

What about Saigon?
Yes, you can use that as well.
im going to be a bit salty if a jailbreak is released for 10.2.1 as I can’t find my 10.2.1 shsh2 blobs… oh well at least its good news and a simple confirmation that jailbreaking is not dead.
Your blobs will of no use as you can’t downgrade without a jailbreak. And yeah, jailbreaking is certainly not dead and is more popular than ever.
