  • Dev Team has been bought out - immediate withdrawl from the iPhone community
    posted on the iphone-dev.org site:

    iPhone DevTeam PRESS RELEASE

    The "DevTeam" would like to announce the immediate withdrawal from the iPhone development arena.

    It was anticipated that the DevTeam would be releasing a tool for the iPhone sometime this week, unfortunately it has been decided to withdraw all development activities on this tool.

    Criticism of the validity of the tool has been reported in the press and certain actions were taken to prevent the release of the tool on the 30th March.

    Due to these actions, certain developers ceased their work immediately, with others reconsidering their position.

    On Monday the 31st of March the DevTeam was approached by an unnamed party to sell all of thei intellectual property and related applications.

    After much consideration the offer was accepted and work has ceased.

    The name of the company that has made this offer is private, and the details of the deal are confidential.

    Our only comment is that Pwnage Tool and other such applications will not be seen outside of the lab.

    We would like to thank our users for their support over the last 10 months.

    ENDS
    Bummer.

    Anybody get tomorrow's date?

      I guess I'm slow, cause I panicked for 5 minutes. How will the world, and iPhones be with no more Jailbreak? Stuck behind the bars of iTunes. Tell me it's an April fool's prank, or I'm never leaving 1.1.3.

      I still believe that this is an April Fools joke, but if it is not, I would like to extend a big FU to the Dev Team for selling out on us...
