Earlier today Comex, whose real name is Nicholas Allegra, has told us through his twitter handle that he is joining Apple as an intern. What does it means, besides some other things , is that he will not work on any jailbreak project as long as he is with Apple. He also conveyed the same message when a user asked about next generation JailbreakMe 4.0 for next generation iOS 5. Here is the screenshot of his tweet.
Comex: @xBFGinger I’m hoping @MuscleNer will make JailbreakMe 4. :P
For our those readers who are new to jailbreaking, MuscleNerd is one of the key members of Jailbreak community and iPhone Dev Team. So, Comex is shifting more burden on the shoulders of MuscleNerd who is already developing/maininting Redsn0w, PwnageTool, Ultrasn0w etc jailbreak and unlock tools.
It is still unclear what role will be given to Comex and how his talent will be utilized by Apple. Most probably he will be assigned a task to find vulnerabilities in the next generation iOS 5.
Though it is a sad time for all jailbreakers, but we should expect a bright time too. We might expect some nice jailbreak tweaks to hit the iOS 5.x/iPhone 5.
