Comex is famous in the Apple community for jailbreaking iOS devices. Using the website JailBreakMe.com, millions of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users have been able to easily jailbreak their devices, opening them up to run unauthorized applications (of the legal and illegal variety).
In an interview with Forbes magazine last month, Comex described his knack for finding exploits in Apple's iOS code. "It feels like editing an English paper. You just go through and look for errors. I don’t know why I seem to be so effective at it."
From the sound of his tweet, it looks like Comex will be taking a break from the jailbreak community. It’s sad to see him go, but we’re pretty sure he’ll hand over the reins of JailbreakMe to someone else.We wish him the best of luck at Apple!
