iPhone Is it safe to use this jailbreak method to not re-sign every 7 days?

Its from a very reliable source, so I would say yes. And, BTW, you don't have to re-sign every 7 days...only if after 7 days you reboot your phone.

Ok, the source is ok but then they tell you to use a tool called 3utool which is a Chinese program you have to install on your computer and that sounds scary.

Saurik is working on a tool so that you won't "ever have to use cydia impactor after the first time". I would wait for his tool.

If you ever need to resign, just set your date back to the day after you originally signed, reboot, run Yalu, jailbreak, set date back to normal, profit.

You mean to do this every 7 days? Originally signed when? Last 7 days?

I originally signed Yalu on Thursday 16th Feb, I had to reboot my device last week, and Yalu wouldn't work (past 7 days since I last signed it), I set my date on my iPad to Friday 17th Feb, rebooted and Yalu ran with no problems, jailbroke my device and I then set the date back to normal.

And then your jailbreak will never expire?

On my 6s+ the profile is automatically deleted after 7 days for me so I don't think this method would work for me.

I know you say not to reboot, but sometimes it's inevitable, especially if something crashes. Definitely appreciate the tip though, it's nice to have something you can execute in the field if you don't have a PC on you.
