    Is it safe to give a developer your UDID for a jailbreak tweak ?

    Yes
    They need it to create a profile so it runs on your device

    I'd be asking why they need that. I also wouldn't risk giving it for a jailbreak. There are too many scam artists that promise a jailbreak but instead take your information for illegal purposes.

    Not too sure about that
    Ask them what they're using it for and visual proof they need to have it

    Not saying they don't need it, but I'm 99% sure they don't

    How reputable is the guy? What are his other works? Is he known in the community?

    I'd vote no. There has never been a jailbreak I've participated in where they've asked for that. Which phone do you have and which iOS version?
