At the beginning of June, we shared the news of a new conference called JailbreakersUnite, which will allow avid jailbreakers to meet up with one another and have an opportunity to listen to prominent community members speak about their projects.

The event, which is taking place at the Fat Cat Fab Lab Maker Space in Greenwich Village in New York City, will be like a slimmed-down WWJC and will allow participants to mingle with those with similar interests and grab selfies with famous jailbreak hackers and developers.

At the time of the announcement, little was known about the event or what would be going on there. Fortunately, the organizer has officially worked up a full day-to-day schedule that details who will be speaking at JailbreakersUnite and when, in addition to other events.

The current schedule looks something like this:

Saturday, July 22nd 12 – 6 P.M.

  • 12:30 – 1:00 P.M. William Vabrinskas: repository manager at ModMyi & developer of tweaks such as Boxy
  • 1:15 – 1:45 P.M. – Ryan Petrich: Developer of Activator, FlipControlCenter and countless other core jailbreak tweaks
  • 2:00 – 2:30 P.M. – Logan O’ Connel: developer of tweaks such as Falcon
  • 2:45 – 3:15 P.M. – Andrew Wiik: developer for iOSCreatix team, and developer of tweaks such as Horseshoe
  • 3:30 – 4:00 P.M. – Jürgen West: iPro Service and entrepreneur/consultant
  • 4:15 – 4:45 P.M. – Jerrick Davis (ClevrPwn): security researcher
  • 5:00 – 6:00 P.M. – Open Conference Room: time to socialize and work on projects and eat dinner (pizza)

Sunday, July 23rd 1 – 5 P.M.

  • 1:30 – 2:30 P.M. – Jailbreak Setup Competition
  • 2:45 – 5:00 P.M. – Open Conference Room

As you’ve probably noticed, there will be a competition on Sunday. This competition will allow jailbreaker attendees to show off their jailbroken device setups for the chance to win prizes – the person that receives the most votes for the coolest setup will be deemed the winner.

If you’re planning on going, you’ll want to grab your tickets as soon as possible because they’ll be flying off the shelves. A ticket to attend both days (Saturday and Sunday) is available for $15, while a $10 ticket option is also available if you plan to attend only on Saturday or on Sunday rather than both days.

If you have any questions pertaining to JailbreakersUnite, or would like to schedule yourself in as a last-minute speaker, you should contact the event organizers via email as soon as possible.

    That seems cool and all but I’m a bit surprised to see an event like this still going on considering that jailbreaking just hasn’t been the same since early iOS 9.

    • Blacklight: Retribution

      RIP jailbreaking

  • Why don’t they convene to actually make an up to date jailbreak?

  • Ernie Marin

    This should just be called “Apple/Google job fair”, most of them just end up working there anyway.

    • Blacklight: Retribution

      lol

    This is a job fair. How about putting your heads together and getting an easy more up-to-date jailbreak done. Apple has pretty much made everything after iOS 9 just an experiment. It has been a long time since any real jailbreak for the masses. I am willing to even pay for a jailbreak I don’t have to fuss with. Make one easy and stable that would be a great use of time.
