Kickstarter fund for A5 iOS6 jailbreak

What are your opinions on such an endeavor? I can't see how it's a bad thing.

Well, I donated $20 to Pod2G and the devteam with the release of RR... so I have no problems sending another $20 for a new exploit.

Frankly I can't help but imagine there's hundreds of thousands of dollars to be made for a valid exploit... if all those involved played their cards right I suspect many of us would pay quite a chunk of change for access to it.

Where did he get 10,000,000 Jb iphones from sounds way off to me.. I personally don't know who he is or how well he is known. personally never seen it so I would be hesitant to trust him. it's honestly not a bad idea just not sure he's the one to pull it off.

Maybe Saurik's statistics on Cydia usage?

It's a good idea, but wouldn't donate to it.

That awkward moment when Cook realizes that Gates is donating millions to jailbreak iDevices.

I hear you.
And who is this guy collecting money and why should anyone trust him or send him their cash?
Anyone can start collecting money and state its for this and that and then dissapear with everyones funds.
Unless its ran by a well known JB scene hacker or Saurik himself I wouldnt trust it.

Yeah i wouldn't waste my money throwing it to someone that isn't reputable or well known from the jailbreak community. And I don't think jailbreaks should be paid for.

Honestly if Pod2g or somebody like him started one. I'd be more then happy to give him some upfront support so he can take some days and focus on a jailbreak for research and development or so they can take time off work etc. I'd still want it free when it's done. That's what I was talking about when I mentioned the idea in another thread. Not interested in random people I never heard of.

I agree.

If I, or someone, were to start it, then I would team up with the dev team or at least chronic dev so there are the right people behind it.

EDIT: Okay wow, that person literally took my plan, verbatim, and implemented it days later. Kinda cool to see someone take my idea and run with it.

THis is a good idea, but there's a downside to this working.

If it works and a JB is found, that's great. But what about the future? Will devs ever release anything for free knowing that if they hold out long enough, people will raise funds for it?

I don't know a out that. They will make their money anyway with donations after the fact. They don't need to sit there and hope some donate before.

Why?

Windows RT is just as locked down as iOS is.

The jailbreak-consuming public is incredibly demanding enough as it is, and seem to have driven at least one jailbreak developer from the scene, if I recall correctly. Can you imagine how demanding they'd (we'd) be if there was an upfront price paid? I can't even fathom...

Good day Sir/Madam
PM me your Paypal stat! I will donate to you $1000 to get a beta from my offshore account offshore account, I do have to speak with my cousin in Nigeria to release the money to you and I will need you to send me some money first.













Anyways this idea of the TS is just one more scam to get desperate people to release $
