Wouldn't be too surprising if Comex worked on actually making iOS 6 much more secure from jailbreaks. He wouldn't want to admit that to the public because it would make him look bad to the jb community, but imo iOS 6 seems really really really safe from jailbreaks.
Might be partly thanks to Comex?

Looks like he forgot his eyebrow waxing appointment too...

I'm pretty sure comex can't start helping the jb community until iOS 7 is out because of the fact he's worked for apple. He can't legally release info about what he's done with a company unless the company allows him too. Therefore telling people the exploits would be illegal and lead to courts

I say he should just create an alias and continue jailbreaking.. While I appreciate all of the respect to legalities that the dev team has.. part of me does wish for an anonymous hacker to just continue on jailbreaking devices in any way possible.. nobody is forcing you to download and use it =) .. not saying I would use it .. *cough* .. but it would be nice to have the option.
It sure is frustrating to hear posts from dev members saying they have a jailbreak but can't release it because of this or that..
Apple is also not stupid.. even small companies are known to have strict agreements.. Apple isn't small, isn't stupid and surely thought things out before hiring a notorious jailbreaker like Comex.
All we can say is we don't know... if he signed an agreement not to jailbreak devices for x many years after leaving, it would still be binding after he got fired... I only recently am allowed to write code for e-commerce projects 5 years after leaving my previous employer.

Forbidden you from certain things pertaining to your job for sometimes years after leaving a company.
Lawyers,sales people just to name a couple. I assume Apple of also having certain stipulations that forbid Comex from leaking io6 exploits to the public?!?!

Wishful thinking, i know. Oh iphone 5, how long will you sit on that ATT shelf until a jailbreak comes out and i can then fall in love purchasing you. If jailbreak ever becomes impossible (which i don't see possible with the market value) then i believe iphone sales will dramatically drop. I could never own and be happy using a stock Ios iphone, never. 5 phones later and now ios 6 and the most customizing you can do is have a custom background image on your home screen, WOW APPLE.

2) Even if he was, though, there would be nothing to stop him from working on jailbreaking using another online alias if need be. Even if he continued to conduct such work under "Comex", Apple would still have a hell of a time proving -1-, that it was indeed him, and -2-, that he contributed anything and wasn't just, say, observing a conversation.

Now he can go JB the iPhone 5! C'mon Comex! We like you much better on our side anyways.

Apple doesn't give out info to employees how you would expect. They know just as much as the public knows(except retail).
Regardless it doesn't matter what comex can and can't do...im sure he's going to do whatever he wants anyway. You don't just NOT reply to an email for no reason..

Wow. That blows. Off topic it would be nice to have the jailbreak me site back.

In IT NDAs are commonplace. I just left a company after 15 years, there is no "Non-Compete" in place but the NDA I signed years ago covers all knowledge regarding proprietary software and systems I worked on so while I can do the same thing for another company I can't use the code and such that I developed or had access to while employed there.
I'm sure COMEX is likewise prohibited from sharing his knowledge of iOS 6/iPhone 5 if he even has such knowledge.
