Taig is one of the most prominent jailbreak teams we have seen in the last few years but, just recently, they have gone a little quiet, leaving us to wonder if they have left the jailbreak scene for pastures new. Gladly we can tell you that they haven’t and are currently keeping a low profile while they work on a new jailbreak for the latest firmware. iOS 10 download [ext link] has now been released publicly and has already been updated to iOS 10.0.1 and that is the firmware that Taig are concentrating their efforts on.

iOS 10 Jailbreak :
With iOS 10 only just released, it is a bit early to expect a public jailbreak. Taig will need to spend time examining iOS 10.0.1 to see what vulnerabilities are available and how they can be used. They will also want more information on how the new iOS 10 “ROOTLESS” system affects a possible iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak, although, if Luca Todesco is anything to go by, it doesn’t. He has already provided the proof that both iOS 10 and iOS 10.0.1 can be jailbroken but he won’t be releasing his methods or any jailbreak to the public.

When we see an iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak from Taig depends entirely on what they find in the new firmware. From then on, to actually exploit those vulnerabilities successfully in a fully working jailbreak will take time and a lot of testing to ensure it is safe for us to use. While we wait, don’t expect a running commentary from Taig on what they are doing and what they have found, jailbreak teams on the whole like to keep their methods secret simply because they don’t want Apple getting any tips on what they are doing.
iOS 10 Features :
iOS 10 is full of neat features that can only be made better through the use of Cydia [ext link]. The tweak developers will already be looking at how they can enhance the features or provide something bigger and better so that, when the iOS 10.0.1 jailbreak is released, they will be ready to go and users will have instant access to some of the best apps and tweaks around. For a full list of the new features that we can expect the tweak developers to be looking out, check out our separate post here.
