Even though the Unc0ver Virtual tool does not jailbreak iOS 16.2 by making amends to the system roots, it provides a lite/ demo version of Cydia for iOS 16.2 and other devices that can’t be jailbroken yet. Lite Cydia is limited in functionality compared to Cydia. Still, it’s worth trying until a jailbreak tool is released for iOS 16.2.Install Unc0ver Jailbreak (Virtual) →

3. Cheyote Virtual for iOS 16.2 Jailbreak
