  • JailbreakMe.com No Longer Safe For Jailbreakers


    According to a recent announcement by MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd), the infamous jailbreak website JailbreakMe.com is no longer safe for jailbreaking. From what we've been told, the owners of the JailbreakMe domain, Drudge of Conceited Software (@ConceitedApps), sold it to an unknown buyer. This means that the domain JailbreakMe will no longer be available for jailbreak uses.



    Nonetheless, MuscleNerd mentioned that all the jailbreak tools will be moved to jailbreaks.me. In the meantime however, web-based jailbreaking is unavailable. Migration of all the web-based jailbreak tools should be on the jailbreaks.me website very soon. Make sure to not use jailbreakme.com anymore as it is a potential hotspot for iPhone malware and is untrusted and unsafe. Spread the word!

    ModMyi will keep you posted on the status of the new website jailbreaks.me as it is still a work in progress.

      Disgusting and dirty bastards.

      The jailbreakme.com site has the Steve jobs 'thank you' banner up still. Hopefully it will stay like that until they get this whole thing figured out. I'd hate for anybody to get some sort of malware if the site comes back up.

      Whatever... it was his to sell. Let him do with what he wants...The "Gentleman" thing to do would have been to at least offer the domain name to MusicleNerd first.

      Yeah - it's not just operable on JailbreakMe anymore. It's being moved.

      It's his to sell. They asked for donations, and I bet 90% of the traffic declined.

      No big deal for me, since I don't have an iPad. Redsn0w works fine.

      Your right it is theirs to sell and they can choose to do whatever they want to it. Doesn't change the fact that it was dirty and from where im standing it looks like there is a lot more to the story than we know. All i know is musclnerd said he "sold out", last time i checked nobody likes a sell out. (Except for the one buying from the sell-out) Ha

      What's the story on this guy?

      Nevermind I did my own digging and what a scumbag. Profiting off of our hackers work and putting up fraudulent sites that scam people out of money. Here's a link to where I found this, right at home/modmyi!

      "iPhoneunlockuk.com" AKA "Jody Sanders"!!!

      I told comex about this in July - I didn't think I needed to tell anyone else as it was hosting his JB I then provided comex with more details and as he didn't do anything I didn't think I needed to tell MN or anyone else.I sort of assumed everyone knew and was surprised when I mentioned it to iOPK and posixninja att MyGreatFest that they didn't know.Maybe I should have mentioned it earlier but Drudge assured me it was 'safe' and I informed comex.I am not sure when the domain was sold but it was certainly before 24/7/11

      Now sorted!Saurick has tweeted:Jay Freeman (saurik)...and tonight, jailbreakme.com was transferred to me (convenient, as I host the site ;P); so, going forward, we no longer need to worry!

      yeah dude i hope so, haha i just had my 3.1.3 cause my 4.2.1 shattered and i had font swap and downloaded some font and it wouldnt let my 3.1.3 os ipod boot up. it just got stuck on the booting up or whatever. So, i just re-did this jailbreak yesterday. i guess i should have read up on here before i jailbreak so uh yeah but it seems fine i guess i read about how they talked to the person that now owns it or some good thing like that. http://modmyi.com/images/smilies/noidea.gif
