Finally, we have some news related to the jailbreak from an authentic team of jailbreak developers. Yes, I am talking about the team Pangu, a group of jailbreak developers responsible for the iOS 9 jailbreak. It looks like the team Pangu has demoed a working iSO 10.3.1 jailbreak at a tech conference in China.
Someone who attended the conference shared an image on the Chinese social media network, and it looks like the Pangu jailbreak app have been demoed to jailbreak iPhone 7 running iOS 10.3.1 software version. In addition to that, rumor has it that the team Pangu is working in collaboration with the developers of PP Assistant, and an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak could see the light of the day as early as next week.
A twitter user who goes by the handle @qwerty860320 has shared a short video of Cydia running on an iPhone. The text in the video seems to reveal that the Cydia was running on an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.3.1 software version.

qwerty860320 also claims that the iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak demoed during the conference will support 64-bit devices. If this turns out to be true, here is the list of device that this upcoming Pangu jailbreak should be able to jailbreak:
- iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE
- iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2,
- iPod Touch 6G
While the news itself is a biggie for the jailbreak community, we highly recommend to not get too excited about it because the Pangu team itself is yet to make an official announcement regarding the jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1.
The latest available jailbreak is Yalu which is capable of jailbreaking iOS 10.2. The Yalu jailbreak tool was released by Luca Todesco. Apple was quick to patch the exploit used in Yalu jailbreak tool which was released back in January.
It has been more than three months since we had last heard about an iOS jailbreak. It is exciting to hear that there’s at least a working jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1. We hope that the Pangu team will release it to the masses as soon as possible.
So after a long wait of more than 3 months, it is finally great to hear that there is a working iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak, and may be released soon.
