    Well let's hope that if he gets the job (hopefully he dosent) he continues to help us. And well if he dosent thin we can't say much about his choice. And for his sake (If he takes the job) he gets payed well enough to stop, not a ****** pay but a extremely grate pay. But oh well, what happiness happiness

    Why Apple didn't do this earlier is beyond me? Congrats to those guys, after all what pays the bills matter (especially if you can do what you like and get paid good for it). There will be others to step up.

    Well my iPhone would be boring without a JB, I would definitely move to an android phone if JB was gone.

    So you want a job @ apple? Become a JB hacker! That's your reward. Lol

    True. However ...

    "Due to Apple implementing new protections, this jailbreak requires a record breaking 5 different exploits to complete"

    "Jailbreaking is quickly becoming an insurmountable task"

    Hiring hackers maybe isnt that bad, they can take all their ideas and projects to the "legal" iOS, maybe one day jailbreaking will become useless because it will be so full of jailbreaking ideas and stuff, who lnows

    The news comes from P0sixninja talk at jailbreaking convention MyGreatFest. P0sixninja looked ecstatic when he gave the announcement a few minutes ago, in which it was stated that iPad 2 and the iPhone 5 can be jailbroken using five userland exploits which have been discovered over time.

    Yes, you read that right. Not one, not two, but five exploits have been discovered for the iPad 2 and iPhone 5. What is even more fantastic about this news is how all of these exploits are userland ones. And as quoted by P0sixninja himself “it’s the record breaking number of exploits found”.

    These userland exploits are, as suggested by the name, related to software. Unlike hardware-based exploits, these can be patched. A hardware revision wouldn’t matter that much in this case.

    As per my knowledge, Apple has only revised hardware once and that was with the iPhone 3GS which received a new model back in late 2009 having an updated bootrom that patched pod2g’s 24kpwn exploit. But since it’s a software exploit then the hardware revision won’t mean much for the jailbreak itself.

    What does this mean for you? Well it basically means that iPhone 5 (and iOS 5) should get an (untethered) jailbreak sooner than what was previously expected.

    The exploits were discovered by the Chronic Dev Team. A key member of the team itself namely: P0d2g, found exploits like 24kpwn, steaks4uce and also discovered an exploit in the Apple A4 chip, used in iPhone 4, original iPad and iPod touch 4G. p0d2g and p0sixninja are members of the Chronic Dev Team, who were the key developers/hackers behind the famous jailbreak tool Greenpois0n, which back then was the only method available to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 completely untethered.

    Since the jailbreak will be userland, it will work on all iOS devices on all exploit-ready iOS versions, and as mentioned earlier, get an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 at launch. P0sixninja also quoted that the it will be the most amazing jailbreak yet! So we have high hopes for this one, we’re sure the Chronic Dev Team is bound to please the jailbreaking community with said jailbreak. So yes, the iPhone 5 will highly likely be jailbreakable soon after launch, though the Chronic Dev Team said that they would need the new iPhone 5 itself to see whether the exploits work or not, but, fingers crossed!
    Great news! This hopefully means I only have to pay $199 for an upgrade rather then $649 for an unlocked i5. Also I will enjoy my iPad 2 much more which was/is on 4.3.5 out of the box.

    Through Cydia, we download tweaks that add features to applications we already have on our iDevices. Example: iProtect locks applications on iDevices. How could Apple put it as a Native Feature on next Operating Systems ? It won't.

    The guy is a sellout. Same goes for that comex geek too. you watch, as soon as apple get what they want they'll chew these two up and spit them out like mother's leftover meatloaf. you'll see. Most of you commenters are so naive it's sad. But I hope I'm wrong and this guy will tell apple to sling their hook and continue jailbreaking. I mean, it's not like him and comex havent already made a small fortune in our donations and a name for themselves in the community, is it.

    This might have been said already, but this is a great boost to the JB community.

    The Dev Team had their time, but it's been clear for a while that Apple were the better opponent, now the path is clear for some new JB blood, and more importantly, some fresh thinking.

    And with the possibility of a job with Apple at the end of it, expect to see some serious players start wearing the Dev Teams shoes pretty soon.

    How do you know what they've made? You don't, you are guessing. By the way MN doesn't even accept donations.
