It seems such a long time ago that we got an update to Cydia and, with iOS 10 now over 3 months old, some users are getting a little impatient. We have become used to jailbreaks being released quite quickly but Apple did promise to put a spanner in the works; according to Luca Todesco, iOS 10 is not going to be an easy firmware to jailbreak but he has come to the rescue with a new jailbreak that will let us download Cydia for iOS 10. It is called Yalu and you can use one of the following methods .

Method 3: Yalu Jailbreak [ Expert Method ]
Before you get too excited about installing Cydia for iOS 10, be aware of what Todesco has to say about the jailbreak. Apart from saying that this is likely to be the only jailbreak we get for now, he does warn us that it is in beta and may cause problems on your iOS device. He is working on an update so, if you can wait, do. It is also a semi-untethered utility, requiring you to jailbreak every time your device reboots and, to get it onto your iPhone or iPad to start with, you will have to use Cydia Impactor to side-load it. If that hasn’t put you off, check out the links below for all the information you need to download Cydia for iOS 10 .

Fix Cydia Not Working Issue :
Cydia is welcomed by all who download it but there is one issue that needs fixing , it will stop working in a few days and, no matter how many times you reinstall it and all your tweaks again, it will continue to crash. Why ? Because Apple will revoke the certificate, and this will stop Cydia from working. You can fix this by downloading NessTool, a powerful VPN tool that stops Apple from doing this, so you don’t have to keep installing Cydia. How? Check out the link for more details and a NessTool [ext link] download tutorial.
