What this means, is that the new anonymous owner can replace the jailbreak code for a malicious one that could ruin your iDevice. Here’s the full story:
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team brought some bad news just few minutes ago: The owner of the popular domain handling JailbreakMe, http://www.jailbreakme.com, has sold his domain now. Unfotunetly, the web-based jailbreak tool JailbreakMe is not available on any other sites right now.
Few months ago before the release of JailbreakMe 3.0 we saw the domain jailbreakme.com was available for sale on GoDaddy. In case you don’t know, jailbreakme.com has never been owned by Comex. A guy on Twitter named @ConceitedApps has that domain and he sold it out now.
The latest JailbreakMe 3.0 was released few months ago to jailbreak iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3. It hasn’t been released since that version and I don’t think that someone may need to use JailbreakMe now since everyone is looking for iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.
But in case you have an iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3, you will surely need it! MuscleNerd says that JailbreakMe will be moved on jailbreaks.me domain which is owned by the team.
What about next JailbreakMe updates? Well, personally I don’t think there will be next JailbreakMe updates since Comex, the developer of JailbreakMe, has been hired by Apple couple of weeks ago and he will NOT develop any new jailbreak tools.
