Student wins $ 50 000 to “jailbreak” the iPhone
In an article in the Washington Post about the business of “jailbreaking” the experience of Kevin Lee, a student at George Mason University, is taken as an example. This student was able to rake in $ 50 000 a year just to “jailbreak” the iPhone.
To do this, just have enough ads on Craigslist: “Do jailbreak your iPhone today.”
“To be honest, when I started, I did it for me and my friends, the snowball effect started from there,” says Kevin Lee. “I started to have 5 to 10 clients a week, now I have about 30 to 40. I even had a client working at the Embassy of Mongolia, who wanted to jailbreak his iPhone to use it in his country. ”
The activity of Kevin Lee does not please everyone and goes against the basic philosophy of “jailbreak”. One of the most famous teams in the field, the Dev-Team has always indicated that his solution was to remain a hobby and not be used for profit or sold. Apple’s not going to be happy.
