Mobile Security Summit 2015

Chinese company/team of hackers TaiG is organizing Mobile Security Summit, a jailbreak convention scheduled for March 27, in Beijing, China, with several prominent figures of the jailbreak community already set to attend the event.

The announcement of this event hasn’t been publicized quite yet on this side of the world, but it seems the TaiG team aims at bringing its own version of JailbreakCon to mainland China. The schedule seems quite tight since it’s only two weeks away from now, but that hasn’t stopped famous hackers such as comex, P0sixninja, Pimskeks, and Chronic from committing to present at the event.

Self proclaimed “most authoritative annual domestic first mobile security summit,” the first edition of what could become an annual event will have security experts from all over the world get together and share their knowledge of mobile security.

In an exclusive interview with TaiG back in December, we had learned that the team wanted to hold a jailbreak convention on January 16 of this year. This never materialized likely because of the extremely tight schedule. I’m personally a bit skeptical about the timeline of this event too, but I am hopeful the folks at TaiG will be able to pull it off. If anything, they are set with an interesting panel of experts, with maybe more to be announced in the near future.

Unless you’re in China, I doubt most iDB readers will be able to attend, but if you’re still interested, here are two ways to get you started:

    iOS 8.2 jailbreak we need you now, so developers can start updating their tweaks so by the time Apple Watch is released and we’re forced to update everything will be running smoothly!

    • Gabriel Anaya

      I’d say wait while longer. I’d hate for another jailbreak tool to be stomped out by another small annoying 8.2.x bug fix update.

      • iPhoneWINS

        apple will always have bugs and use those to also kill jail breaks

  • Merman123

    Anything that’s eases and promotes future jailbreaks is always welcome. No matter what part of the world they come from. Long live JB!

    • Maxim∑

      yeah, popularity of jailbreak has gone down a lot though especially after iOS 6

      • Gabriel Anaya

        Umm where have you been the last two years or so? Jailbreaking has become even more widespread then it was then.

      • Maxim∑

        I’ve been on this site/jailbreaking since iOS 3.1.3 its not as popular

      • Gabriel Anaya

        I know more people around me personally that have started jailbreaking now that haven’t in the past. I wouldn’t go jumping the boat on that one just yet.

      • iPhoneWINS

        false jailbreaking is alive and well

      • Jail-breaking used to be tons harder to do for the Individual, and also back then people weren’t as technologically savvy, which induced some form of anxiety when it came to modifying the OS on their device. Now, however, people are more exposed to technology and jailbreaks can be done at the click of a button, which, of course, promotes popularity.

    iOS 8.2 Jailbreak landing in 3…2…1….

    • Waleed

      May your words come true

    • Greenhaze22

      If this happens, I’m due a phone update and will certainly relinquish my HTC One M7 (which is awesome) to get the iP 6 and jailbreak the F#$K out of it.

  • Xee

    Will iDownloadblog be attending?

  • dudeimmexican

    Level = Asian

  • Anonomous.TECH.man

    Is IDB going to Attend.

    • Nope

      • Anonomous.TECH.man

        Why not is it for hackers coders and tweakers only or IDB can’t afford it?

  • rippley5150

    Cool. I live in Beijing and would like to attend this!!! The registration form asks for media credentials. I’m curious to know if any one can just show up and attend?

    • hkgsulphate

      you definitely love Beijing’s smog

      • rippley5150

        It’s not too bad today lol
