iOS 10.2.1 and jailbreaking: what are my options?
What with the release of iOS 10.2.1 and the soon-to-be-closed signing window for iOS 10.2, many people are wondering what the best strategy is for their device. Should they stick with a jailbroken firmware or jump to iOS 10? If they're already without a jailbreak, which iOS version do they need to be on to make sure they get one? What do they need to do to be able to upgrade to iOS 10.2 later, and keep their jailbreak for now?
In this article, we'll quickly go through what we consider the smartest options for each device and iOS version, so that you can (hopefully) make an informed decision.
Simply go to the section for the iOS version that you currently have on your device, and find the part that refers to your device type. You'll need to know whether your device is 64-bit or 32-bit.
Remember, all these are recommendations based on current information. If Luca's tool is not released or an iOS 9.3.5 jailbreak is released tomorrow, some of this advice will be wrong. I take no responsibility for events outside my control; I only give what I consider to be the best and most cautious advice based on the current reliable information available.
