What’s new in this version of Saigon?
The latest version of Saigon jailbreak is compatible with iPad Pro running iOS 10.2.1. It is developed by anaxci, who is a new developer on the scene.
As you already know, Saigon utilizes v0rtex exploit for pwning all devices on iOS 10.2.1 firmware.
However, this tool doesn’t support iPad Pro and iPad Air models out of the box.
Since the project is now open source, a new developer picked it up. He added the necessary offsets required for iPad Pro cellular and Wifi models.
There’s nothing new in this tool except the offsets so the installation process remains exactly the same.
Before you move on, carefully read the compatibility and requirements section to ensure everything goes smoothly afterward.
Which iPad models are compatible?
Here’s the complete list of Apple tablets that are supported right now –
- iPad Pro 1st generation (iPad 6,3 and iPad 6,4)
- iPad Air (incompatible)
- iPad Air 2 (incompatible)
- iPad mini 3 (incompatible)
Warning – Do not try this on an incompatible device because it won’t work. If you happen to own such a device, wait for a new version by the developer.

How to jailbreak iPad Pro with Saigon
Step 1 Download the IPA file using the download link given above.
Step 2 Connect your iPad to your computer and fire up Cydia Impactor sideload tool.
Step 3 Drag the IPA file (from step 1) into its window.
Step 4 Enter your Apple ID email login and password.
Step 6 Wait for the jailbreak app to appear on your tablet’s home screen. Once it’s there, go to Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management and verify the app’s certificate. You can now open it from your home screen.
Step 8 Press the Jailbreak button to start the jailbreak process. Once it restarts the Springboard, Cydia will appear on your home screen and you can start installing your favorite tweaks.
Hopefully, this tool will support iPad Air as well in the future. The developer can do it but he doesn’t have a tablet for testing this tool.
As of now, the developer has no plans on adding support for other tablets. If you hate to wait, you can also manually enter your device’s offsets to this tool.
Alternatively, you can also coerce the developer into creating a new IPA file. You can then test it on your device and share your results with him.
