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.

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

Lol at those upset at "the greedy bastards" etc...It's theirs to sell or do what they want with.

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

I hope Jody uses the site and gets what is due to him.

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!
