extra_recipe+yaluX Jailbreak Errors [FAQ]

Q. extra_recipe jailbreak is not working on my iPhone 7. How do I fix it?

A. You can try the following fixes –

  • Firstly, make sure you are using the latest beta 4 version. Follow this installation tutorial and then try opening it again.
  • Hard reset your iPhone 7/7+ if it does not work on the very first try.

Q. extra_recipe application crashes the moment I launch it. Am I doing something wrong?

A. No, just keep at it and try a few more times. It will eventually work. If it still doesn’t work, reboot your iPhone and then retry.

Q. I was able to run extra_recipe+yaluX on my iPhone but it got stuck on a white screen. What’s causing this issue?

A. If you get stuck on a white screen, your device may be in jailbroken mode. Just wait for a minute and then kill the application manually from App Switcher. Afterwards, try opening Cydia and see if it works.

  • If Cydia opens, your iPhone is in jailbroken mode.
  • If Cydia doesn’t open, your iPhone is not in jailbroken mode so try again.

You can follow this detailed guide to fix the white screen.

Q. What is the difference between mach_portal and extra_recipe+yaluX?

A. The main difference between these versions is –

  • Substrate launch mechanism extra_recipe+yaluX enables Substrate automatically whereas mach_portal doesn’t.
  • Stability – extra_recipe+yaluX is more stable than mach_portal.

Q. Does it enable Substrate automatically?

A. Yes, the latest beta 3 version enables Substrate automatically. However, if you are using the older version, you will need to enable it manually.

I highly recommend you upgrade to the latest beta as soon as possible.

Q. Does extra_recipe+yaluX support iOS 10.0.1 and 10.0.2 firmware versions?

A. No, this version is only compatible with iOS 10.1 and 10.1.1. (Update – These versions are now compatible if you use beta 4 update.)

Q. Is extra_recipe+yaluX stable on iPhone 7?

A.  It’s more stable than mach_portal but you can experience bugs during the jailbreak process.

Q. How do I know if my device is in jailbreak mode?

A. If all goes well, you will get a black screen for a few seconds and then a Respring logo will appear.

After a minute, your device will be put in jailbreak state. If Cydia opens, you are good to go.

Q. Do I first need to install mach_portal before using extra_recipe+yaluX?

A. Yes, installing mach_portal is a must. The extra_recipe+yaluX jailbreak does not install Cydia out of the box (Update – The new version installs Cydia).

Using mach_portal first will ensure that you have Cydia installed on your iPhone.

Q. Can I use it instead of yalu102?

A. No, extra_recipe+yaluX is only meant for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus users on iOS 10.1 or 10.1.1. yalu102 is already quite stable.

Q. Can I use Cydia Extender to install extra_recipe+yaluX instead of Cydia Impactor?

A. Yes, it’s perfectly fine to do so. Cydia Extender (Ext3nder) is just an on-device alternative to Cydia Impactor. You can also download Extender Reloaded Cydia tweak.


Q. extra_recipe+yaluX jailbreak is not stable for me at all. Can I switch back to ijapija00’s yaluX?

A. Yes, you can do so. However, I wouldn’t recommend doing so because it’s a bit unsafe. Moreover, Luca will push more updates soon.

Q. How can I increase jailbreak success rate with extra_recipe?

A. There’s no surefire way to get it working on the first try. You can follow the given method to increase your success rate –

  • Force reboot manually.
  • Enable airplane mode on your iPhone.
  • Disable low power mode if it is enabled.
  • Clear all applications from the App Switcher.
  • Wait until your device auto-locks.
  • Run extra_recipe again.

Q. My extra_recipe certificate keeps getting revoked automatically. How do I fix it?

A. This error occurs due to Immortal Cydia tweak. To fix this error, simply uninstall Immortal from your device.
