Today marks the first public firmware release from Apple. After being in beta testing stages since December 14, 2016, Apple has released iOS 10.2.1 to the general public today. Ensuing the feature-crammed iOS 10.2 update, iOS 10.2.1 merely smooths the edges of 10.2 and corrects new bugs that were introduced by the firmware. However in spite of its lackluster changelog, iOS 10.2.1 is exciting for one reason: jailbreaking!
Ensuing my latest video discussing the possibility of being able to jailbreak iOS 10.1.1 using a new “technical” jailbreak (it’s not a full-fledged utility, yet), I opted to create this complete iOS 10.2.x downgrade tutorial for those of you who want to improve your chances of jailbreaking! If you happened to update to iOS 10.2 or 10.2.1 beta 1, it’s not too late to roll back to iOS 10.1.1 to ensure that you’re covered if/when a public iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak drops (so long as you take advantage of this tutorial before Apple stops signing iOS 10.1.1).
