Here is all you need to know about Meridian Jailbreak for iOS 10 supporting all 64-bit devices.
Another day, another release. Today, Sparkey has released the new iOS 10 Meridian Jailbreak with Cydia and SSH support. Now, this Jailbreak supports all the 64-bit devices running iOS 10.x, from old time.
Meridian Jailbreak is based on new KPPless which is a new style of jailbreaking. It avoids writing to certain protected areas of the kernel. So, it needs Cydia Substrate update also.
On his twitter, he has already talked about Meridian Jailbreak, work in progress. So, at the initial release, this support Cydia and SSH.
Meridian pb2 is now live on the website along with the changelog.
Should fix Cydia and uicache.
After running the exploit, click the 'done' button and it will bring up options including force reinstall cydia and dpkg.https://t.co/hCrO2uDoKO

But remember, if you have already installed Cydia using G0blin Jailbreak or other, it not gonna help you.
If you have a 64-bit device running iOS 10.x, you can get Cydia on your device.

You may see many resprings on your device because of No Substrate right now. However, you may not find Cydia on your device. So let’s try to get Cydia using SSH on your device.
How Do I Use SSH using Meridian Jailbreak Exploits?
If you have never done this before, please do not do it. However, if you are familiar with SSH, Run the JB, and when it has worked successfully, open your ssh client and ssh to your devices IP on port 2222.
Cydia Present But Not Opening, How to Fix?
The Developer of Meridian jailbreak has already fixed this issue. He has said,
“SSH into your device, cd to /meridian, and extract the dpkg.tar file to / with “tar -xf ./dpkg.tar -C /”. If you are incapable of doing this I recommend you don’t”.
However, Meridian is set up to be self-contained to the ‘/meridian’ folder and doesn’t install Cydia if it’s already present. If you installed those (alpha/beta/dev only) tools you should be aware of how to fix issues as they arise.
Update With Cydia Support: Recently the Developer of Meridian Jailbreak just showed a happy news for iOS 10.3.x users.
A few days ago I remembered I'd need a jailbreakd for Meridian. Oops. In that case, might as well just use substitute. It'll be way easier to modify and hook up than Substrate if needs be.
Substitute & Cydia incoming! Woooo!
