Which iOS 10-10.3.3 jailbreak should you choose?

There are plenty of jailbreak tools for iOS 10-10.3.3 versions and users are spoilt for choice. Here’s a list that will clear up the confusion and allow you to choose the most stable jailbreak for your device.

Which iOS 10 jailbreak tool should you use?

While choice is a great thing in the world of jailbreaking, it can also lead to a lot of confusion and chaos.

Almost all big names within the community release their own jailbreak tools once an exploit goes public.

Therefore, you must make an informed decision and choose a decent jailbreak tool for your Apple device.

iPhone devices

Choosing the best jailbreak boils down to a few basic features such as –

  • Stability – The frequency of random reboots, resprings, and freezes should be negligible.
  • Compatibility – The tool should support your device on a good range of iOS versions.
  • Tweak support – Tweak developers should actively pump out tweaks for the jailbroken versions.
  • Developers and the unofficial community – Jailbreak developers of a tool should be active and must take cognizance of users’ grievances and issues.
  • App support – All App Store applications compatible with your firmware should work properly on your device.

I will compare all the current jailbreak tools and grade them on the aforementioned points.

iOS 10-10.3.3 jailbreak tools compared

1. yalu102

yalu102 is the first jailbreak for iOS 10 firmware. It is developed by Luca Todesco.

It has a fairly decent success rate and is relatively stable than its iPhone 7 counterpart.

However, you will definitely experience random reboots and resprings on your device. If you are on iOS 10.2 or below, it’s still worth a shot.

  • Stability – Average, frequent random reboots
  • Compatibility – 10-10.2
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Poor support, the developer has left the scene
  • App Support – Average

2. mach_portal/extra_recipe 

mach_portal is a jailbreak tool designed specifically for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. It is developed by Luca Todesco.

extra_recipe is an improved version of Luca’s mach_portal tool. Both of these tools have extremely low success rate and often require over 50 tries to successfully jailbreak your device.

If you have an iPhone 7/7+ on iOS 10.1.1 or below, give this tool a wide berth.

  • Stability – Very poor, frequent random reboots
  • Compatibility – 10-10.1.1
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Poor support, the developer has left the scene
  • App Support – Average

3. Saigon

Saigon jailbreak is based on triple_fetch and ziVA exploits and was originally released for iOS 10.2.1. It is developed by Abraham Masri.

Although it was updated for other versions, this tool still remains a mess. What sets it apart from other tools is the exorbitantly high number of tries it requires to get going.

It can easily go over 150 tries to successfully inject the exploit.

  • Stability – Very poor, requires a lot of tries
  • Compatibility – 10.2.1-10.3.1 (only for select devices)
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Poor support, the developer has left the scene
  • App Support – Average

4. h3lix

h3lix is a 32-bit jailbreak tool for iOS 10 firmware. It is developed by German hacker Tihmstar.

Although it came out a bit late, a lot of users use it as it’s the only jailbreak for 32-bit devices. It is extremely smooth because 32-bit devices don’t have KPP and KTRR protection mechanisms.

  • Stability – Excellent
  • Compatibility – 10-10.3.3
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Excellent
  • App Support – Poor

5. g0blin

g0blin is the first full-fledged jailbreak tool based on Siguza’s v0rtex exploit. It is developed by tweak developer Sticktron.

This tool had the early bird advantage and is, hence, used by a lot of users. Just like other tools, g0blin supports all 64-bit devices except iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus.

A lot of users have reported location and in-app TouchID issues with this tool. Therefore, I suggest using other tools because it won’t receive any updates anymore.

  • Stability – Good
  • Compatibility – 10.3-10.3.3
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Average, the developer will no longer work on the tool
  • App Support – Good

6. Meridian 

Meridian is an iOS 10-10.3.3 jailbreak tool based on Xerub’s KPPless technique. It is developed by hacker Ben Sparkes and is currently under development.

Although it comes with Cydia, it doesn’t work properly as Saurik is yet to push an update. It is extremely stable because of KPPless.

The developers are working on an Electra-style Substitute port for iOS 10. Once it supports Substitute, Cydia will become functional and you will be able to run jailbreak tweaks and applications.

  • Stability – Excellent
  • Compatibility – 10-10.3.3
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Excellent
  • App Support – Excellent

7. doubleh3lix

doubleh3lix jailbreak is a v0rtex-based jailbreak tool for iOS 10. It is developed by renowned hackers Siguza and Tihmstar.

It is, by far, the most stable jailbreak tool for iOS 10-10.3.3. However, it has one major shortcoming – it doesn’t support A10 Fusion devices.

This means you can’t use this tool on iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus. It can only work with iPhone SE and older 64-bit models.

Apart from that, it is very stable and doesn’t have any issues with TouchID and GPS, unlike g0blin. If you are still using g0blin, delete it and install this new jailbreak tool.

  • Stability – Good
  • Compatibility – 10-10.3.3
  • Tweak support – Excellent
  • Developers – Excellent
  • App Support – Excellent

Conclusion

64-bit devices

  • If you are waiting for an iPhone 7/7+ jailbreak, waiting for Meridian is your best bet right now.
  • As far as non-iPhone 7 users are concerned, you should stick with doubleh3lix jailbreak. Once Ben releases Meridian, you can safely upgrade from your existing tool.

32-bit devices

  • For those who are still using a 32-bit device, I recommend using h3lix jailbreak. Even if you don’t want to use it, it’s the only option you have.
