    so I will jail break my phone tonight and have a few questions (IPhone 7 w/ 10.2.1):

    1. I understand I have to turn off find my iPhone, touch ID, and passcode lock.... Can I turn these back on once I JB?

    2. does anyone have simple instructions or a utube link so I can do this process nice and easy..

    thank you in advance,

    RS

    Absolutely unbelievable there's a 10.2 JB out for old iPhone's but the current top dog iPhone 7 / 7 Plus there's no Jailbreak yet, except that buggy alpha Luca released last year and has yet to be updated since.

    Man I miss Android more and more. Rooting and custom ROM's were not some top secret hush hush thing like JB'ing is. It was openly discussed between developers in public.

    I do like my 7 Plus, but man if I was buying again would get the Pixel XL.

    The locked down nature from Apple is so annoying

    It's not as buggy as everybody makes it out to be. I'm so glad I jailbroke when I did since most of the tweaks are now compatible with iOS 10.

    It's not secret, but talking about exploits they've found and how they are going to use them in public makes it extremely easy for Apple to issue a point release that patches it.

    Apple controls iOS. If device manufacturers could issue patches at the same speed Apple does when a problem has occured I doubt the Android devs would be quite so public in their discussions.

    Just jailbreak your phone man. Seriously, it's not that buggy. Its been as stable as any other jb I've had. Just took a bit of trial and error at the beginning. Just follow the instructions, and you'll be fine. If you can do all the android rooting, you'll have no problems with this.

    Ok I think I'll go for the 7 Plus JB this weekend.

    Does that Pixel Launcher theme work on iOS 10 JB ?

    And what's that newer dark mode theme called ? I thought there was a different one other than Eclipse ?

    And icon packs theme works on the 7 Plus JB ?

    Which is better for overall system dark mode, but still keeping the red, greens, and blue accents ?

    Eclipse 4 or Noctis ?

    Sorry man, I can't answer that. I'm on 9.0.2 with Eclipse 3 so I just wouldn't know.

    Noctis just darkens the CC, NC and other areas, it is not as full blown system wide as Eclipse 4. But then again, Eclipse 4 has its foibles in certain apps (can't read text, button shapes looking odd).
