We cannot understand why JailbreakMe.com is up for sale, now if you visit 9to5Mac they report that @comex, a certain member of the Dev-team has been working on the iPad 2 jailbreak, apparently the jailbreak will use some sort of PDF exploit via jailbreakme.com and will support iOS 4.2.1-4.3.3, but a thanks to jailbreak beta testers leaked the exploit online. According to the source above this version of the JailbreakMe 3.0 exploit has not been confirmed by the Dev-Team or @Comex himself, how does this now stand if JailBreakMe.com domain is up for sale?
The question we would like to know is, “Who is selling the JailBrakMe.com domain?” We have tried to find who is selling it and we are still coming up with nothing, it does not tell you the sellers name on GoDaddy.com, this still remains a mystery.
It was thought that Comex was the owner, but iDB has updated its site saying Comex confirms he does NOT own the domain. Does this mean that original creator Nicholas Penree still owns the website?
We cannot understand why JailbreakMe.com is up for sale, we will keep everyone posted about this and updates will follow as soon as we get to the bottom of it.
