A supposed email conversation between @comex and MultiMediaWill (the guy who apparently leaked the JailbreakMe PDF) has hit the Web, in which it is noted that JailbreakMe 3.0 will launch tomorrow. First off, we can't be sure this is legit, so don't get too excited. However, as you can see in the above screenshot (which reached us via the Italian weblog, iPhoneItalia) the email conversation appears to be real. In the conversation, MultiMediaWill apologizes for leaking the JailbreakMe PDF, and @comex explains that it only served to delay the final release of JailbreakMe 3.0. The jailbreak mastermind then adds (later in the conversation), that he is hoping to relaunch JailbreakMe "tomorrow" (that is, July 5). Presumably, MultiMediaWill - or, "Will the Weasel," as I'm starting to think of him - leaked the information. If the email is to be believed, it would suggest that @comex was originally planning on relaunching JailbreakMe either yesterday or today (today would have been rather fitting, a nice Independence Day gift). However, due to the leak, @comex notes that the solution will go live online tomorrow. He writes:
But if no more issues come up, it should be ready tomorrow.There's obviously no way we can be sure this is legit, and it could easily be complete and utter trash. But, if you've been following the JailbreakMe saga, this is undoubtedly another all-important episode. We'll keep watching the website, and will be sure to post as soon as the online jailbreak solution goes live. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts on this supposed email conversation in the comments.
