Tons of fake iPhone 7 jailbreak websites and videos are doing the rounds on the internet. So today I decided to address this issue.
There are a lot of gullible people in the community who actually end up paying for a fake jailbreak. These fake jailbreak tools are harmless but some of them may contain viruses and infect your device.
Here’s why there’s no jailbreak for iPhone 7/7+ on iOS 10.2 firmware.

No KPP Bypass exists for iPhone 7
The real reason why there’s no jailbreak for iPhone 7 is KPP (Kernel Patch Protection). Bypassing the KPP on an iPhone 7/7+ running iOS 10.2 is next to impossible.
I will explain how KPP works in a separate article.
Yalu jailbreak’s kernel exploit is still compatible with iPhone 7. We just need someone who can bundle that along with a KPP bypass.
Here’s what Luca Todesco tweeted regarding KPP.
Sidestepping KPP is a requirement for all jailbreaks. But this is the first actual attack against it that I know of.

Should I Stay on iOS 10.2 or Update to iOS 10.3.1?
There are two possible scenarios now –
- A jailbreak gets released for iOS 10.2 in the future.
- Team Pangu drops an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak.
However, there’s no news regarding a developer working on KPP bypass. Also, it is unlikely that a developer would burn a KPP bypass just to jailbreak iPhone 7 on iOS 10.2.
On the other hand, we have Team Pangu, who have already developed a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1. KeenLab dev team possesses a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 beta 2.
Therefore, the probability of iOS 10.3.x getting a jailbreak is huge.
You can choose to stay on iOS 10.2 or update to iOS 10.3.1, it’s up to you. According to me, users stuck on non-jailbroken firmware should upgrade to iOS 10.3.1. Apple can stop signing it any time now so hurry up.
