The most respectful and well-known developer group in iphone hacking field, iphone dev team, has been eliminated! check out the official press release on their site here. here’s the quote:
iPhone DevTeam PRESS RELEASE
The “DevTeam” would like to announce the immediate withdrawal from the iPhone development arena.
It was anticipated that the DevTeam would be releasing a tool for the iPhone sometime this week, unfortunately it has been decided to withdraw all development activities on this tool.
Criticism of the validity of the tool has been reported in the press and certain actions were taken to prevent the release of the tool on the 30th March.
Due to these actions, certain developers ceased their work immediately, with others reconsidering their position.
On Monday the 31st of March the DevTeam was approached by an unnamed party to sell all of thei intellectual property and related applications.
After much consideration the offer was accepted and work has ceased.
The name of the company that has made this offer is private, and the details of the deal are confidential.
Our only comment is that Pwnage Tool and other such applications will not be seen outside of the lab.
We would like to thank our users for their support over the last 10 months.
Really frustrated at this, ‘coz they are the one that owns my full respect and now they are gone. same goes to the long-awaited pwnage project. What do we expect from the iphone hacking field tomorrow, then?!
Anyway, they have done so much to us. and they should have a good ending. hopefully their hacking spirits will be kept and reserved in the following hacking guys. for now, let me say:
Good luck and Farewell, iPhone Dev Team.
Update(Apr.1,2008): So glad to learn that i’m just been fooled 🙂
