Good news for all you iOS users who have grown sick and tired of the seemingly never-ending wait for a stable iOS 10 jailbreak. Italy-based famed iOS jailbreaker Luca Todesco has assured that work is in progress to achieve a workaround on the seven-day limit of Apple’s signed developer certificate.
For the uninitiated, even though the certificate is for sideloading, it has a validity period of a week.
Todesco recently took to Twitter to assure his fans that they will soon have a solution for iOS 10.2 jailbreak’s seven-day certificate issue. However, he didn’t clarify whether the solution would come from Todesco himself or another developer.
A solution for the 7 day cert is seemingly in the works, so please bear with Cydia Impactor for another week or so.

Note that Todesco seems to be assisting fellow jailbreaker Saurik, who is believed to be working on a solution to get the iOS 10.2 jailbreak’s seven-day validity certificate.
As pointed out by the folks over at Value Walk, the seven-day validity applied to anyone using a free Apple ID for signing the Cydia Impactor certificate. As for those who makes a $10 payment for an Apple developer account, the validity of the certificate is extended by one year.
As of today, Todesco’s iOS 10.2 Yalu jailbreak is compatible with the last-generation Apple handsets only. That’s because jailbreaking the iPhone 7 has been incredibly difficult so far.

The Italian jailbreaker has gone on record saying that he will update the Yalu iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the coming days. Unfortunately, though, he also clarified that the update is not his immediate priority as of yet.
On a related note, developer of AppSync Unified Karen has issued an advice for all iPhone users to refrain from installing iOS 10.2 jailbreak tweak until the updated version with iOS 10.2 compatibility is available. Otherwise, the jailbroken handset could fall victim to a stubborn boot loop.
