  • Jailbreak Impostors On The Loose: Fake Facebook Fan Pages


    Over the last week I have seen many users and developers warning us of fake Facebook Fan pages. First it was a fake Musclenerd Facebook Page, and later to follow, @saurik warned us of a fake Cydia Facebook page. And the latest to trickle in now, is a fake @geohot Facebook Page.

    This seems to be a trend lately, people imposing to be the hard working developers and trying to cash in on their fame. In light of all of this, the developers have all taken steps to create official pages so that nobody is confused on what is real and fake. @Saurik recently added a link to his official Cydia Facebook Page right inside of Cydia's homepage, so you can't miss it. As for MuscleNerd and Geohot, I have yet to see announcements for an official Facebook Page but I'm sure this thread will grow with more information.

    Other than that, keep a look out for anything suspicious and report it to any respected community user, as the networking will spread the news and correct anything that is misleading.

    In a related note, why not join the ModMyi.com Facebook Page.

      Jailbreakers Newaflash - Apple hates you!!! Why do you pay allegiance to people who think all day about thwarting your efforts to use your phone the way you want to? It just works? What about multitasking? That doesn't work. Theres not an app for that! Compliments of Steve Jobs.
      Nothing better to do in your life then come on here and TRY to convince ppl to get a Nexus One? That's pretty sad. Course you don't say anything bad about the Nexus, just the iPhone, which just proves what I'm saying is right, your just wanting to bash Apple and the iPhone. No one wants to hear that garbage, so take it somewhere else, and get a life while your at it.

      I Agree with Ugshotgun, A Jailbreak would be nice for those of us dumb enough to have upgraded to 3.1.3 (including myself)

      I'm afraid it looks like we are going to have to sit it out with the rest of the community though. I do miss my 8gb 3g running 3.1.2 though Almost wishing I had held back on the upgrade to the latest 32gb 3gs but I'm sure it will be worth it when I can Jailbreak again.

      but you can jailbreak 3.1.3. I'm on it right now with all my cydia/rock apps working. you just need someone with a mac (hint, hint) to make you an pwned ipsw especially since you're on AT&T. Too easy.

      We do need a jailbreak for firmware 3.1.3 because some of us bought new iPhones that were on that firmware and there was nothing we could do about it.

      FAIL. How about you do some research before you post. Backgrounder has been around for years. The iPhone can do pretty much anything the Nexus One can do (once jailbroken) and more. Except flash, of course. But I'm not willing to switch devices for solely that reason, as I'm sure many other people wont.

      And don't go into the Apps issue - you know you can't win against the AppStore + Cydia with your Nexus. And as far as the hardware goes, well, just wait until June and then we can properly compare the two devices' specs.

      Agreed. I am still on a 8Gig 3g with 3.1.2 and Blackra1n'd. Loving it. I would love to see what is in store @ WWDC this year and see the new hardware/software (hoping). I am ready for more RAM and a better processor. I am all for waiting for os4.x and possibly a new device for another JB.
