Well here is another shocking news for the jailbreak community, Comex the author of iPad 2 iOS 4.3.3 Untethered iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak and best known for introducing one click jailbreak solution jailbreakme has now landed at apple for internship. Looks like apple is using the same strategy which sony used in past by hiring Geohot. Comex will start his internship two weeks from now.
Comex was one of the core members of iPhone dev team and the jailbreak community might be upset with this decision, however lots of his followers are happy for him. Few days back he tweeted that he is getting bored day by day and wanted to have an internship probably at apple. Later he tweeted that he would be doing internship at apple, two weeks from now.
The original name of Comex is Nicholas Allegra, who is a 19 year old college student, His one of the biggest achievements is Jailbreak Me 3.0 which allows iPad 2 to be jailbroken untethered on iOS 4.3.3.
How Could It Affect the Jailbreaks Of Upcoming IOS?
Well, as you might know that iOS 5 release could take place any time soon, Apple might ask Comex to try to find any known or unknown vulnerabilities in this firmware which could be exploited, thus making the jailbreak even more harder than before. But this does not mean that we won’t have any jailbreak’s in the future, Hackers are smarter every way and I bet that it won’t affect the upcoming jailbreaks.
