Joshua "p0sixninja" Hill's OpenJailbreak Site Goes Live
Towards the end of month in June
popular iOS hacker, Joshua Hill, also known as p0sixninja, unveiled a new project he had been working on called “OpenJailbreak.” The project is an open source jailbreak repository that allows hackers and developers to work collectively on future jailbreak releases. Hill isn’t the only one working on the project either as there appears to be a whole team of people involved, including popular graphic designer Surenix, who also appears to be working on the website.
When taking a look at the site
, many will think of a GitHub style page, with the main page showing the most recent projects added. Tapping the Projects link will show all the projects available. Here, users will find things such as “Libraries for manipulating Apple’s crash report files,” and many more. The site appears to be running on Redmine, which is a flexible project management web application developed originally by Jean-Philippe Lang. The application appears to have several features such as role based access control, a flexible issue tracking system, and support for multiple projects.
The project as a whole is set up to help foster collaboration between hackers and developers, which may ultimately help towards efficient research and fruition of future jailbreaks. As if this wasn’t enough, the site according to p0sixninja is “just a small part of an ultimate plan.” He hasn’t revealed what that means exactly but it definitely has many eagerly waiting to find out.
