Finally, it all boils down to the hacker groups that last made the working jailbreak tool, Pangu Team and PP Jailbreak. After Luca Todesco finally dropped out of the race, the jailbreak community is turning to people who were able to deliver what has been promised, and that is a working jailbreak tool. But will either Pangu Team or PP Jailbreak, or even the long forgotten TaiG create a jailbreak tool for the supposedly last breakable iOS version, the iOS 10.2.1?

Rumored Jailbreak Tool for iOS 10.1 from TaiG

In between the release of Apple's then latest iOS 10 and the first major update iOS 10.1, Evad3rs reported that TaiG will try to make a comeback to the jailbreak scene. This is by creating a jailbreak tool for iOS 10.1. In fact, it is said that the tool is almost finished, that Taig is just waiting for the final iOS 10.1 to come out.

The odd thing about this is that the jailbreak tool is not going to become public. So came iOS 10.1 a week before October 2016 ends but the jailbreak tool for iOS 10.1 purportedly created by TaiG never showed up. Or was it kept from public eye, no one knows.

Rumored Jailbreak Tool for iOS 10.2 from Pangu

Pangu Team has been around giving out jailbreak tools starting with iOS 7.1. After the release of iOS jailbreak tool for 9.2 - 9.3.3, there were no solid reports about another jailbreak tool from Pangu camp. The closest rumor that Pangu was reportedly working a jailbreak tool was back before the release of iOS 10.2.

Towards the end of November 2016, NeuroGadget picked up a rumor that Pangu is just waiting until Apple launched the latest update on iOS 10. The reason is very simple and straightforward; the hacker group wants to have Apple release a stable iOS version, the one that could last longer before another major update is released.

More than two weeks later, Apple released the full version of iOS 10.2. But no jailbreak tool came from Pangu. This was the same time hacker Luca Todesco has been teasing the jailbreak community about coming out with a jailbreak tool of his own. More than just a week later, Todesco released his semi-untethered Yalu jailbreak tool.
