According to an announcement by one of the leading lights in the iOS jailbreaking scene, he’s off to do some work for Apple.
Via his Twitter account Nicholas Allegra, aka Comex, last night said: “So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.”
Part of the iPhone Dev Team, Comex rose to fame by leading the brilliant and free web-based unlocking solutions at JailBreakMe.com
Fellow Jailbreaker MuscleNerd was quick with the congratulations.
“Congrats on the Apple internship…what a great opportunity!” he said.
However, this announcement means that Comex has effectively switched sides and his undoubted genius will now be used to secure Apple devices from people just like him.
If he succeeds, Cydia – the alternative to the Apple App Store – will be doomed.
