The team Pangu recently demoed a working iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak during a conference in China. Maybe the jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1 is coming by Pangu so it’s better to prepare your device for the jailbreak beforehand. Apple is currently signing iOS 10.3.1, but iOS 10.3.2 is just around the corner and Apple may stop signing iOS 10.3.1 as soon as a newer version is out. Since the jailbreak is said to work for iOS 10.3.1, it is the best time to prepare for the jailbreak before Apple pushes a newer iOS version. Here is the how you can prepare your device for iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak whether it is iPhone or iPad.
By jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad device you can download many applications which are not available at Apple’s official App Store among other tweaks and extensive customization of your device. While jailbreaking is fun, it is an unpredictable thing and sometimes it causes a serious problems or issues when something goes wrong in it. No doubt the jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1 does exist but it is in private for now. So jailbreak lovers start to prepare your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch in advance for the upcoming jailbreaking tool.
These are some of the standard practices that you should follow before jailbreaking your device or preparing it beforehand for an imminent jailbreak.
Backup your Data
Before any step, you perform on your device or putting your device in a process like a jailbreak. It is always the best idea to backup all your data that you have on your device.You can backup either using iTunes or iCloud. It will ensure you that your data is safe and stored in your system or in the cloud and it can be restored again on your device if anything goes wrong or you want to start fresh.
When the jailbreak comes out and you try to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad, there is always a chance that something may go wrong, then you can easily restore your data if you have a backup of your device. So it’s a good practice to back up your data before tinkering with your device. Here you can find our detailed guides to backup your device:
Install iOS 10.3.1
The latest version of iPhone firmware is iOS 10.3.1. But iOS 10.3.2 may be on its way to being released to masses. If your device is running an iOS version older than iOS 10.3.1 and you want to try the upcoming jailbreak, then upgrade it to iOS 10.3.1right away. Apple is going to stop signing iOS 10.3.1 as soon as a newer version is released and after that, you won’t be able to install iOS 10.3.1 and there won’t be a jailbreak for you. If you have your device is on iOS 10.2 or below and your device is jailbroken then stay on it until the jailbreak of iOS 10.3.1 released.
While you can update to iOS 10.3.1 using OTA update features, it’s highly advised to start fresh whenever you wanna jailbreak your device. But before that, make sure to take a backup of yours data as shown above. Here is the right guide for installing iOS:

This is one of the most irritating processes for the fans of jailbreak. There is no official announcement or a release date available for the jailbreak. We do not even know if the iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak will ever be released. But we will have to wait patiently and see if the team Pangu releases the jailbreak in the coming week to the masses or not.
