JailbreakMe.com Transferred To Saurik – Cydia Founder; Safe For Jailbreaking Again

JailbreakMe 3.0

When we writing the post about JailbreakMe.com being sold to an unknown entity, we wondered why Jay Freeman a.k.a saurik – founder of Cydia hadn’t bought the domain.

As it turns out, we were quite late in reporting the news as saurik is indeed the new owner of the JailbreakMe.com domain, as the person who had initially bought it from ConceitedApps was kind enough to transfer it to Saurik.

Minutes before we published the post warning you to avoid using JailbreakMe.com, Freeman announced the news on Twitter:

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! 😀

Saurik or the iPhone Dev team were the ideal folks to own or control the domain, so this is good news as there were concerns that the domain could be used to host iPhone malware.

So JailbreakMe 3.0 can be safely be used again to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for iOS 4.3.3 or lower. You can checkout this post for more details on how to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 4.3.3 or lower.

Thanks Mgrove03 and HusAli for the tip!
