    As we seen on pretty much every Jailbreake process, some arguments and disagrements have surfaced over at Chronic Dev Team and Pod2G the finder of "SHAtter" (the current exploit for 4.1 bootrom) is not longer part of the Chronic Dev Team.

    Ealier today:

    This shouldn't affect development and release of the JB since he shared the details of the exploits with all DeV teams, but it is sad to see him part away.

    It sucks, but it isn't as bad as what people might think. He even said in his twitter response that he develops exploits not the applications.

    If they only could produce one jb fast, that would be great.

    You have to consider they are trying to make the JB as easy as possible for everyone. Take a look at the steps involved with rooting an Android phone. They are out fast, but not very user friendly. You also have to look at it like this--why release an exploit now when 4.2 will be out in about 2 months.

    I was under the impression that since this is probably going to be a bootrom (?) jb, that it was independent of the iOS release?

    Never said he was quitting, just not part of the Chronic Dev team anymore.

    No kidding. It seems like they are all pretty young and definitely are good at acting their ages.

    True, too bad cause they're really good at it but they let their egos get in the way.
    I think working together as a team instead of individual units can accomplish better results.

    And so the never-ending cycle of never releasing another JB begins...!

    4.2 may have a bug when it's released, so better to wait until 4.2.1. But then 4.3 will only be a few months after that, and have more features, so maybe they should wait for that too?

    Reminds me of all the questions on here about "should i buy iDevice x now, or wait for iDevice x+1" - no point bothering if you're never going to buy because you're afraid that it will someday be out of date.
