    So I've been out of the jailbreak world for a while. I was running my iPhone 5S jailbroken on iOS 7 until I replaced it with an SE currently on 10.3.2. It looks like the jailbreaks today are all different from back when I was active in the community under new names and stuff. I'm hoping someone can either point me to the right one for my iPhone now or can confirm that one doesn't exist for my iPhone yet.

    Thanks for the guidance.

    The new jailbreaks are semi-untethered. You have to sign the JB app via Cydia Impactor (which sideloads it to the device), approve the certificate and then run the JB app.

    Every time you reboot the phone you have to re-run the app. Unless you have a developer's Apple ID you will need to resign the app every seven days.

    I see. I was hoping that there would be an untethered jailbreak by now :(

    Last fully untethered was for iOS 9.1.
