Saïgon is a semi-untethered jailbreak for certain 64-bit devices, running iOS 10.2.1, developed by cheesecakeufo. Saïgon works by sideloading an IPA using Cydia Impactor. The first beta was released on 15 October 2017. It was announced that support for iPhone 6s on iOS 10.3.1 would come in the future.

Originally based on Adam Donenfeld’s ziVA exploit, Saïgon has been based on Siguza’s v0rtex exploit since beta 3.

cheesecakeufo no longer provides updates for Saïgon, and has open-sourced the jailbreak on GitHub[1].
