JailbreakMe is Safe Again

Yesterday the news broke that JailbreakMe.com had been sold to an unknown person, creating a bit of panic in the jailbreak community after a few prominent iOS hackers had suggested not to use the site anymore for security reasons.

As it turns out, JailbreakMe.com is now a safe place again, thanks to saurik, who apparently purchased the domain name from the previous owner…

In a series of tweets, Saurik explains:

Yesterday, we learned that jailbreakme.com was sold in July; today, I talked with the new owner: he is actually very likable and awesome. ;P

…and tonight, jailbreakme.com was transferred to me (convenient, as I host the site ;P); so, going forward, we no longer need to worry! 😀

Everything is back to normal. It is completely safe to use JailbreakMe to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on iOS 4.3.3.

Now we’re just hoping for a userland exploit for iOS 5!
