i dont understand?? if apple are so crap why buy their products? when they are jailbroken yes, they are good but not great.. isnt that a sign to move to android! a country mile ahead of ios! when i bought the iphone 5 from having the galaxy s3 i felt like i went back 5 or 6 years!!

And when I bought my First Android I was confused as to Why you needed a firewall or Spyware for a Cellphone, then I found the reason why, but i still had my iPhone of course & since iOS is The Top Dog (Don't Gotta Like it) but it's true, i sold my Android device so now i'll never buy a Android device ever again. I'd take a BB again b4 i buy another Android OS.

Yeah right and you felt that Androids stability and solid designed hardwares? Let alone the bullshittt that comes along with blot wares, Needs for appkiller, non intuitive tools and finally how easily you can lose your data when that sh*t crashes..I returned my GS3 after 2 weeks.

Apple's developers are dumb for constantly patching the exploits found! Makes me so irritated how hard it gets to find an exploit to inject the code

had to unjailbreak my iphone 5 today was working fine then all of a sudden got no service sign in left corner of phone and could not make any calls or text, putback to factory settings and works fine again so i think it was definitely the jailbreak that caused it.

No genius involved. Just a lot of work. Anybody could do this jailbreak, but most are not sufficiently motivated. Most are satisified with simply using someone else's work, which is cool. Until, of course, one can no longer find such motivated hackers.

Easy to say after it has been done... - February 6, 2013 at 12:29am
Anybody can do a such hack ? Have you smoked buzz or what ? I agree that the hack is not that difficult for a unix / cocoa touch developer once you have seen the trick! Without knowing where to start from, you will have to read tons of articles and routines/code and learn from personal hacking experiences which takes years! @planetbeing has ported Linux to iPhone and done tons of others amazing hacks and he possesses a massive knowledge and skills that you seem not to well capture. On this planet, a few people have his knowledges, will and programming skills, I'm myself a humble developer who understand a bit what he has achieved with his mates... And IT'S BIG!

Ha -- yes, once the set of exploits used is described, someone who's pretty naive might think it is straightforward to come up with something like this, but believe me, its still a *lot* of work to get right, and to make robust. On top of that, coming up with that large a set of exploits is pretty amazing -- you really need some pretty decent intuition about how OSes work to find that many bugs that quickly. I've been programming since 1972, and I'm very impressed.

The problem with brilliant people is they do amazing things look so easy that others think it is easy to do. To further explain the complexities of the task of jailbreaking is that they have no source code to ios to review and look for exploits. They reverse engineered the ios kernel binary to at most assembler and then went through the hundreds of thousands of lines of asm output to find a usable exploit. They also needed to know how to use the exploit in a way that enabled them to patch the kernel while the system is running. This is computer art at its finest even if the weather app didn't work properly afterwards. Even the Mona Lisa has a crooked smile.

Apple already knows how they did it, that is why they always patch the bugs with future jailbreaks. (Reverse Engineering)

Wouldn't be illegal for Apple to apply reverse engineering? Isn't that against their policies?

Not sure why they would publish how they did it...If Apple gets wind then they will be hot on the trails to get it patched meaning fewer future jailbreaks?

Apple can and will easily reverse engineer the jailbreak and fix the holes. This is why jailbreaking is a cat and mouse game. the ball is now in Apples court.
