A few days ago, the popular jailbreak hacker known as Comex has reported via his Twitter handle that he’s going to be interning at Apple. This means something important for the jailbreak community; Comex will not work on any jailbreak tools as long as he is working for Apple.
When a user asked about next generation JailbreakMe 4.0 for iOS 5, he answered that may be MuscleNerd will work on it.
@xBFGinger I’m hoping @MuscleNerd will make JailbreakMe 4.
JailbreakMe 4.0 story:
In case you don’t know, JailbreakMe is a userland jailbreak developed by Comex. Starting from JailbreakMe 2.0 Star which was developed to jailbreak the iPhone 4 and then JailbreakMe 3.0 for iPad 2.
Now we’re looking forward a new version of the tool, JailbreakMe 4.0. We may say that JailbreakMe 4.0 will be developed by MuscleNerd and will jailbreak Apple’s next iOS update, the iOS 5. JailbreakMe 4.0 may also hit both iPhone 5 and iOS 5.
Don’t forget that George Hotz and P0sixninja may have some hidden exploits for the next releases from Apple.
Although Comex’s internship with Apple makes the jailbreak community sad for losing a great jailbreak hacker but we can look forward JailbreakMe 4.0 and more tools in the next few months.
