Jailbreaks for iPhones have existed for almost as long as the iPhone itself. However, all along, these iOS exploits based applications have remained unavailable to the generic hackers who would love to access the source code to create custom tools for themselves. Now that is apparently changing. According to a tweet posted by popular jailbreaker MuscleNerd, at least RedSn0w could soon become open source. That ideally means that users will soon be able to keenly follow the development besides contributing to the development themselves and at the end of it all, access the source code, meddle with it, etc.
Now while it is not clear, we also hear that the Greenpois0n jailbreak tool could become open source too. There is no news on when all of this will actually materialize since the only thing we know now is that these applications will be open souce “soon“.
