JailbreakCon was last weekend and we had the awesome opportunity of learning new things about jailbreak and the community that we may have never known before. If you didn’t get the chance to watch the live feed or didn’t go in person, you can check out NitoTv’s full keynote below.

Popular hacker and jailbreaker Pod2g has just finished talking at JailbreakCon. As soon as the event started people in the stream constantly asked about the iOS 6 jailbreak. Pod2g replied on stage saying that there is a slim chance that him nor any of the other known jailbreak developers have plans to start working very hard on an iOS 6 jailbreak.
Chpwn recently showed a start of an iOS 6 jailbreak last week but, it was nothing far into the development. According to him and other developers they aren’t really looking very deep into developing an iOS 6 jailbreak. But, do I think we will ever see an iOS 6 jailbreak? I would like to think so! Just, more then likely no time soon.
The first couple of hours have gone by at JailbreakCon. On stage the developer for the well known Cydia tweak “Barrel” said that he was able to tell how many downloads of Barrel are paid and how many are pirated. He came up with the percentages saying that 97% of the downloads of the tweak are pirated and only 3% of the downloads are paid.
This was a shocking percentage in my opinion, I knew the numbers would be high but, not this high. I was expecting them to be at least 25% paid but, 3%? Thats just bull crap. I have no respect for someone who cannot respect a developers hard work on a tweak that you are enjoying for free. Would you be happy if somebody took 97% of your check? No, you would more then likely be enraged and pissed as all get out at the people who took 97% of that pay. If you do this you have absolutely no respect for developers, you are stealing something that is not yours, and you are a selfish little bastard. I made a video a while back ranting about how people should stop stealing apps and tweaks. I received allot of anonymous dislikes from people (the cowards as usual) and allot of comments that mostly said stuff like “I love developers and support them”. But, in all reality the people leaving those comments probably have stollen all of their tweaks.
When people ask me how to get all the apps for free with jailbreak (which is sadly probably the #1 reason new people jailbreak) I always tell them that they are going to have to look elsewhere or gather some respect for developers are realize that these people work hard and deserve credit for their tweaks. If I got paid for 3% of my videos, I wouldn’t be able to make videos anymore. I am shocked that developers even stick around developing for people who just steal their product as if nobody worked hard to develop the tweak.
WWJC (Worldwide Jailbreak Convention) is live right now! Allot of great speakers and top developers are speaking at the event and in case you aren’t able to be there you can watch it live here. The live streaming is a bit glitchy and low quality due to the bad WiFi access reported by people who are at the event. But, it is definitely watchable.
The stream and event is pretty technical and informational so, if you aren’t into that kind of stuff you might want to skip out but if you are interested this is a great opportunity to learn allot about jailbreak.
An awesome new Cydia tweak was recently released in the BigBoss repo for $2.99 for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The tweak adds awesome water otherwise known as aqua effects to your iOS devices wallpaper. Its like running your finger across the top of water but instead, running across the top of your screen.
Check out my latest video below showing the new tweak! Thank you!
Samsung has been the company lately that has been nothing but ballsy towards Apple. Apple is big in the tech community and Samsung has been at them with a good amount of commercials bashing the people that wait in line for the new iPhone. Its kind of funny because people already picked up their iPhone despite the commercials and broke sales records big time.
Either way, some Apple fans tend to get mad at these commercials. Just take it as a good laugh because it is kind of funny.
