Now that Saurik is missing in action, we must rely on unofficial methods to get around this error. Here are a few methods you can use to fix this issue.

Uninstall iTunes

  • Completely remove iTunes and all associated programs by Apple from your computer.
  • Reinstall all of the uninstalled programs along with iTunes.
  • Try signing Yalu again.

Use a different Computer

You can try using a different computer or operating system. If you don’t have access to another computer, try running a Windows/Mac VM on your computer.

Try another USB Cable

Try using another USB cable and USB port. In some cases, changing the USB cable was able to fix this error.

Remove Bogus Cydia Tweaks

This can also be another cause behind this error. The problem usually lies with the last Cydia tweak you have installed.

After you have fixed this issue and successfully resign Yalu jailbreak, simply install ext3nder tool or Cydia Extender Installer on your device. This will allows you to resign Yalu’s certificate without using a computer or Cydia Impactor.
