As it is a beta for some reasons, it is not recommended for jailbreakers to jailbreak till the stable jailbreak release.
The un-stability of this Yalu jailbreak mainly due to components like Cydia and Cydia Substrate have not received any updates to provide the level of compatibility to the first iOS 10 jailbreak release i.e Yalu jailbreak.
