Apple has already released iOS 10.3.2, yet there are still no signs of an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak. Pangu has been ranting about having a working Apple crack before the Cupertino company released its latest mobile operating system. So far, nothing has come out.

Apple, aware of the jailbreaking intentions of hackers aching to break the iOS code, is waiting on the challenges ahead. So far, the Cupertino company has had a good batting average against iOS jailbreakers, most of which have gone down one by one, as mentioned in a previous post.

The last one that came close to being an iOS 10 jailbreak came from Lucas Todesco. It was somehow compromised, since his crack worked only on devices prior to the iPhone 7 series. From there, the Italian hacker announced he was exiting the Apple cracking game, an indication that Apple has been successfully thwarting all attempts thus far.

Pangu is on the clock, though no sign of an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak has been seen. As reported by 9 to 5 Mac, it has been well over a week since iOS 10.3.2 came out. With nothing to show, some are under the impression that the Chinese hacking group will once again disappoint and opt not to release its showcased hack to the public.

That cloud of uncertainty thus leaves most wondering if there would be someone who can come up with a working iOS 10 jailbreak. There are unreliable sources on the web claiming to have a working crack, yet these come with potential threats such as malware.

Apple’s iOS is far from perfect, as proven in the past by security experts. Some have exposed the vulnerabilities, raising questions on how jailbreakers have failed to take advantage of them.

One security expert, in particular, is Adam Donenfeld. He had a kernel privilege escalation exploit eventually sent to Apple. The Cupertino company has reportedly patched that up, though Donenfeld mentioned he would be releasing another one this summer.

The thing about Donenfeld is that these are exploits, not the actual iOS jailbreaks some are looking for. The good news is that he is willing to work with jailbreakers, offering his exploit discoveries in what could lead to a functional iOS 10 jailbreaking tool.

Pangu, TaiG or even Todesco may want to take Donfeld on his offer while Apple keeps tabs. The dawn of iOS jailbreaking has hit a big snag, so a new alliance of minds could offer new hope for the Apple Jailbreaking community.
