The developer center has had partial services restored for two weeks now, but has not been fully operational for three weeks. Today, Apple announced that all system services were fully restored after the security breach.

i]We are pleased to let you know that all our developer program services are now online. Your patience during this time was sincerely appreciated.

We understand that the downtime was significant and apologize for any issues it may have caused in your app development. To help offset this disruption, we are extending the membership of all developer teams by one month. If you need any further assistance, please contact us.

All developers will also have their membership extended for one month to help 'offset this disruption.' Apple announced its plans earlier this week to have all systems restored and it seems to have met that goal.

Just open the software to developers already. Free the jailbreak team of their security research "Of course," Cook told AllThingsD's Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. "On the general topic of opening up APIs, I think you'll see us open up more in the future, but not to the degree that we put the customer at risk of having a bad experience. So there's always a fine line to walk there, or maybe not so fine." Just a thought for some of you jail-breakers out there: What if iDevices came pre-installed with cydia and an advanced security base IOS. The owner of the device has an option in their settings called "Jailbreak" or something along the lines, it would then explain to the user that beyond this point opens a lot of doors for customization but at the risk of having a bad experience and or a buggy experience. This would allow the user to then have the choice to have a "jailbreak" like experience that could make them love their phone even more and still have the option to switch back to the normal iOS at any given time. If anything was to go wrong on the device, the user has many options for reporting bugs and testing 3rd party tweaks / customization's without actually causing harm to the device because of a more advanced like "Mobile Substrate" and "Safe mode". Think of it as an always Open Beta that all users can try and if they dont enjoy it they can stick to their boring basic iOS experience. Obviously i am not saying this would be easy but would be a lot better for development, innovation, and the increase of sales for apple! I could keep going on with ideas but please just pass this around and hopefully apple and or 'Tim Cook' will come across it and realizw how much this would help iOS development and apple itself. Steve Jobs is gone. Bless his soul. But always remember he was all about making the User feel in control of their device while also having an amazing experience with the device! -Cheers
