Pod2g has announced the formation of new Dev-Team consisting of himself, MuscleNerd, Planetbeing, and Pimskeks.
We (+ @MuscleNerd @planetbeing @pimskeks) are the @evad3rs. We don't take any donations ATM, please don't be fooled at donating to others.
Notably, the team submitted a paper entitled, "Swiping through modern security features" to #HITB2013AMS the Hack in the Box security conference taking place in Amsterdam on April 8 - 11, 2013.
"I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping."
A noble admission considering out of all the developers on the newly formed Evad3rs team, he is the one who has amassed the largest group of followers.
I asked him what role he has played in the upcoming iOS 6 jailbreak for iPhone 5. Here is what he said.
"Now I am helping as much as I can in terms of communication, websites, and also development, but I was not involved the same way as previous, focused on my work and all... Yes, in order @planetbeing, @pimskeks, then me."
At this point I am unsure of what role @MuscleNerd plays though rest assured it is an important one. As @pod2g revealed in an earlier interview with iSebastien, @MuscleNerd was a key contributor to the iOS 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 jailbreaks released in the previous year. So yet again, here is a figure it seems did not receive the credit due him for the work he has done on the most recent jailbreaks.
For now though, @pod2g really wants you to know that @pimskeks and @planetbeing are the two who should be recognized as it was their effort which brought the iOS 6, 6.1 jailbreak to where it is today -- nearly ready for release!
When discussing the modesty of @planetbeing, Cyril reiterated to me once more that it is he, along with Nikias, aka @pimskeks, that iOS 6, 6.1 jailbreak for iPhone 5/4S hopefuls need to keep in the forefront.
"He [planetbeing] is completely the man on that particular jailbreak. It is his work, like it was mine on previous 2 / 3 ones."
Good to see credit given where it is due, eh? Still, regardless of his selfless admission, I imagine he's played a larger role than he lets on. After all, we've been in deadlock for months, and he has one week on the job and things are just about wrapped up.
