iOS 10 has been out for some time now and a flurry of updates from Apple has brought to iOS 10.2.1. Jailbreaks seem to have been much harder to come by this time around and we’ve gone back to the old days of having to wait several months. However, despite all the blocks Apple has attempted to put in the way, we do, at long last have a way of updating Cydia on our iOS devices. There are two ways to do it; through Safari and with a jailbreak called Yalu.

How to Download Cydia iOS 10.2.1 :
The first method is the simplest, while the second is a little more advanced.
Method 1: Safari Browser
- Open the Safari browser on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch [ this is the only browser that will work with this method ]
- In the address bar, input downloadcydia.org and tap on Go
- Wait until our mobile web page has loaded and then tap on the big UP arrow [ top or bottom of the screen ]
- Wait while a series of options loads at the bottom of the page and then tap on Add to Home Page
- You must now give your icon a new name so type Cydia into the box provided and then tap on Add
- When the process has finished, you can shut Safari down and you will see the new Cydia icon on your home page

Method 2: Yalu Jailbreak
Yalu comes to us from Luca Todesco, a most unlikely source but, before you attempt to update Cydia for iOS 10.2.1, there are some things about Yalu that you should know :
- Yalu is a beta jailbreak and this means you can expect bugs and some instability issues. While this may be fixed in later updates, if you do experience too many problems you can easily delete Yalu jailbreak
- Yalu is semi-untethered and that means having to rejailbreak every time you reboot your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Should this change in the future, we will provide you with all the details
- You cannot download Yalu directly to your iOS device; instead you must use Cydia Impactor to side-load it and you will need to have your Apple ID to hand for this
