Avoid the iOS 10.2.1 update if you're jailbroken or if you're even slightly interested in jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Developers have released an iOS 10.2 jailbreak for select devices but nothing is available for iOS 10.2.1. So, if you move your device to iOS 10.2.1, you'll lose your current jailbreak and you'll also lose the ability to jailbreak your phone or tablet. 

There is no way to drop down to downgrade at this point so once you make your move to the iOS 10.2.1 update you're stuck there until Apple rolls out a new upgrade. 

We still don't have any details about an official iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak release and it could be days, weeks or even months before something lands for the general public.
