    Just in from around the world. Comex the well know hacker of spirit ,jailbreakme and jailbreakMe.com has now started to work with Apple.


    @comex
    comex
    It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored.

    comex
    So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.

    This is major lose to the jailbreak community as a whole.

    But just think now we have someone on the inside.

    I guess Apple figures if we can't stop him, We might as well hire him.

    Good luck to comex and don't forget where you came from.

    Yeah I made it smaller there too. LOL

    You know this site has been the hardest to get into for some reason. Love it just going to have to work harder I guess. I feel like a square peg in a round hole.

    Yep, got his tweets via text. Steve left, comex is leaving.
    What's next? Me? Because I know the world just could not run at all without me.

    Glad we got it worked out though.
    I don't even get how everyone survived while I was gone.

    He is a sellout. Yeah I know people don't like me saying that, but it's exactly what he is. They hired him to stop jailbreaks.

    His job will be looking for security holes, without question. This is very bad news for jailbreakers, though you have to congratulate the turn his life took for him.

    Kinda bummed! He's a jailbreaking genius.

    Edited by moderator: there is no need to be rude about anyone......G1. Working for what he believes in but then jacking that all in when Apple pay him.

    On the other hand, who wouldn't take the money and career opportunity and actually even if for the wrong reasons this will inspire other clever jailbreakers to break the OS.

    Apologies to Apple fanboys but I cannot stand Apple and am just waiting to jump ship to Android and with the Samsung Tab 10.1 better in absolutely every department I'm very glad this news has come in just before I was on the verge of buying an iPad 2.

    I might just however wait a couple of months to see if ipad 2 is jailbreakable on iOS 5 before making any rash decisions.

    An unjailbreakable iDevice is a piece of junk. A jailbreakable iDevice is phenomenal.

    Waiting patiently hoping the jailbreakers can continue to beat Apple, even if they have comex on their side...
