Cydia impactor latest update by Saurik

Saurik has discussed the future of Cydia impactor. There is an error coming for Cydia impactor users saying they need to upgrade to Xcode 7.3, since Apple pushed some of its latest software updates for Mac and iOS. Saurik explained further about this error in his twitter account.
Cydia-Impactor-Error-Xcode There is a very detailed explanation for this error by Saurik. But the point here is there might be a loosened for Linux, and the support will only be given to MacOS and Windows. Further, the solution would come up in mid-December since for some personal commitements of Saurik.
But, until a proper solution would find, you always can use TaigOne as the solution as TaigOne is an online jailbreak tool installer. You do not need to install Cydia impactor for this service or to have paid Apple developer account.
