So if you're brave enough follow the steps below to jailbreak your iOS 10.2 device.
Before you proceed check out the following requirements:
- An iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Pro, iPhone SE running iOS 10.0-10.2

How To Jailbreak iOS 10.2 On iPhone
Step 1: In order to jailbreak iOS 10.2 iPhone grab the latest version of Cydia Impactor from this link and Yalu Jailbreak IPA for iOS 10.2 from here. As of this writing, the jailbreak IPA file is named yalu102_alpha.ipa.
Step 2: Once done, double click to launch Cydia Impactor.
Step 3: Then using a USB cable connect your iOS 10.2 device to your PC or Mac.
Step 4: If Cydia Impactor recognizes your device, it will appear in the drop down list as shown on the picture below.
Step 6: Enter your Apple ID and password when prompt. Don't worry this details will be sent to Apple only and will be used to sign the IPA file.
Step 7: Once the app is installed on your device, you should see its icon on the Home screen labeled “yalu102”.
Step 8: In order to launch the app, trust the developer profile. Navigate to Settings -> General -> Profiles & Device Management and click on the profile corresponding to the Apple ID you used in Cydia Impactor.
Step 9: Then hit the “Trust” button.
Step 10: Next, go back to the Home screen and launch the yalu102 app.
Step 11: Hit the Go button to initiate the jailbreak process. Now wait till the jailbreak will be done.
Step 12: Your device will reboot automatically and Cydia should appear on the Home screen. Launch the yalu102 app and jailbreak again if it is not there.
Great job, your iOS 10.2 device is now jailbroken! Cydia will take some time to do the initial setup when you launch it for the first time.
What is also important, this jailbreak is semi-tethered. This means that every time you restart your device, you will have to launch the Yalu (yalu102) app to jailbreak it again.
