iOS 10.3.1 Exploits will make mach_portal Stable

Here’s what Luca Todesco tweeted.

This means the Adam Dodenfeld’s iOS 10.3.1 exploits may be used to improve mach_portal jailbreak and make it more stable.

The upcoming iOS 10.3.1 exploits will then replace Ian Beer’s exploits used to develop the original mach_portal.

Luca has already clarified that iOS 10.3.1 exploits are useless without a KPP bypass. The only way to utilize iOS 10.3.1 exploits will be to improve iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak stable on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus.

These exploits can also be used to set Nonce Generator in NVRAM and hence downgrade iOS 10.3.x to iOS 10.2 firmware.

When will Luca update mach_portal Jailbreak?

Adam will demonstrate his iOS 10.3.1 kernel sometime in August. So it’s still a good few months away.

As you already know, YaluX jailbreak is all messed up. Considering the fact that this is the only jailbreak for Apple’s flagship devices, a stable alternative is indispensable.


Random reboots and resprings are a huge issue on 10.1-10.1.1. These bugs have already forced a lot of users to remove jailbreak and update to iOS 10.3.1.

In the meantime, read the following guide to make mach_portal jailbreak stable.

What should I do now?

This is without doubt a huge development for users stuck on iOS 10.1-10.1.1.

However, this is also the right time to prepare your device. Doing so will ensure your iPhone is still compatible when a stable jailbreak comes out.


Here’s what you need to do now –

  • Stick to iOS 10.1.1 firmware if you own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus.
  • DO NOT update to iOS 10.3.1.
  • Save SHSH2 Blobs for iOS 10.3.x.
