It's not a good idea to make exploits known so that Apple can fix before we/they even get a JB out the door.
We already have a JB for 6, but say we had one for 7 & apple were about to release 8 but everyone started posting all these exploits before the master was released, apple would just patch them & we would be stuck on 7.
In my opinion its a bad idea to do this, on paper it sounds good but in the real world it will do more harm than good.Apple are Control freaks we need to stop them before they take over the world!!

You think Apple aren't already privy to half of what's gone on in the JB devworld ?
PN is aware of this - and what goes up on the site will be no news or use to Apple.
This is a great idea and as time passes, will expedite the release of future JB's.
Crowdsourcing some of the donkeywork around JB'ing will free up the devs' time to work on the core stuff.
To many, this is high-status, glamourous work - and rightly so.
I wish all those who get involved all the best with PN's initiative - it's profoundly worthwhile.
And for the record, iOS has been substantially enriched by what's come out of JB'ing - which has allowed the testing of concepts and code in the wild for Apple, who have had to bear none of the cost of conception or development of those ideas they 'borrowed'.
The only reason Apple needs to be seen to be working against JB'ing is to maintain its commercial integrity for App (store) devs.

The rest is of no significant consequence to Apple.
Unless PN takes leave of his senses, there will be no discussion of exploits other than what PN might decide to torment and lead Apple astray with.
So relax, pop a Bud and chill.

Go check out what's required for a JB - I think it'll help resolve things for you.

I've been doin' this a LONG time. Not implying others, that feel differently, are inexperienced - but it's hard for me to imagine they think that this idea of PN's is "exploit leak-proof".Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!
