Just under 24 hours after we reported that the iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak has been released, we are already getting a hint at a new jailbreak incoming. This time for firmwares ranging from iOS 10.2 up to iOS 10.3.1.

[xerub](https://www.twitter.com/xerub], the developer behind extra_recipe, created a new GitHub branch for the project, dubbed "fuck kpp". The branch uses a new pathfinder method which successfully patches the kernel, patches the extensions then patches the kernel back in order to prevent crashes caused by Kernel Patch Protection (KPP). The KPP bypass supposedly works for the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus on firmwares ranging from 10.0 up to 10.2, however, as some users pointed out all exploits required for an iOS 10.2-10.3.1 jailbreak are already public.
zIVA doesnt work on 10.3.2 so idk about a jailbreak for 10.3.2+ using these exploits. However, we have so much exploits available now that it shouldnt be much longer for a 10.2.1 -> 10.3.1 jailbreak - fattyffat
What we know for sure is that we are, once again, a huge step closer to a jailbreak materialising.
This is great news as it means a jailbreak for the poor iOS 10.3.X users may soon actually materialise once a developer utilises those exploits and combines them into a jailbreak tool, as we've seen other developers do in the past. There is no direct confirmation that these exploits will be combined into a jailbreak tool, however, it's pretty safe to assume that developers will take it into consideration in a timely manner.
