I0n1c Hates On The Evad3rs And Receives Hate On Huge Scale In Return

Stefan Esser, a hacker known to most as i0n1c is openly hating the Evad3rs and in particular their website, evasi0n.com. In return many fans of the new jailbreak dream team have sent hate straight back at the German hacker.

I0n1c was a big shot in 2011 when he produced a long awaited untethered jailbreak for 4.3.X and gave it for free to the iPhone Dev-Team, who manage PwnageTool and RedSn0w. He still remains famous among the jailbreak community although he has not contributed much to the scene recently.

The main reason of hate from i0n1c is that he thinks the Evad3rs are releasing the jailbreak just for ad revenue, and are taking too much credit and fame from one jailbreak. Esser has made witty comments like, “On day of release the donation button will be right next to the download buttons and via javascript it will follow the mouse.” And “Did I mention our Family discount? Yeah that is right: Your brother,sister,mother,daughter,son,wife and even grandpa pay only 137% the price”.

He believes that the only reason the Evad3rs are moving the progress bar ‘slowly’ is so that people have more time to donate and click on ads. “Oh I see. While I was sleeping a certain website added a 3rd ad banner, because 2 were obviously not enough.”

Despite all this, the iOS 4.3 pwner has said that the Evad3rs are good hackers, and he wishes they would admit that they just wanted some cash for their hard work.

    i Agree With i0nic :)

  • Davethewall

    I Do agree and dont agree with him. They do deserve donations, But not to be too greedy about t.

  • Alu Zeros

    honestly, should they not get deserved to be paid for their hard work? I’m sorry i0nic, but the chronic dev team and the new team have been more than reasonable. Honestly, I’m tired of him crying, either contribute or shut up.

    i0n1c likes to patronize the Jailbreak community because a lot of people like to paint iOS Jailbreak developers like saints because they do everything for free. The fact of the matter is donations often make it to hundreds of thousands of dollars and iOS Jailbreak developers end up getting a nice paycheque. Is there anything wrong with this? Of course not, if you are going to spends hundreds of hours yourself working on a Jailbreak, in order to sustain yourself you will need some kind of financial compensation. This is just life. What does i0n1c do? Instead of getting paid in donations for finding exploits and releasing them as Jailbreaks, he sells exploits to various companies. He essentially does the same thing as Jailbreak developers, but doesn’t go that step further (turn the exploit or vulnerability into a Jailbreak). i0n1c just likes attention, likes to poke fun at his Twitter followers and make fun of the Jailbreaking community in general. Anyways,,, nice article Fred haha I was thinking of writing something similar today, but got sidetracked.

    I would gladly donate. Hard work deserves reward.

    everyone is donating but I think ion1c is right; Evad3rs are going too far; I don’t know how much they need before they will release the jailbreak! I personally think they should have released it last Friday… Of course they did i good job for the jailbreak, but how long is it going to take you before you release it…? Fingers Crossed! Stil Waiting…!!!

    Obviously they want money but they should be honest and say that they will not release the jailbreak until the right amount is reached instead of playing around and lie to people, the best way to get donation is to show that you have something people want to pay for not holding it because most people will not donate before release.

    You sir, Are the most ignorant human being in the jailbreaking community. Donating is what helps the Team create your fucking jailbreaks….bigots swear…

    Not only that, but he refuses to do it anymore, because the majority of the JB community are piraters which I do agree at an extent, but its no reason to stop. Piraters are always going use things to an advantage and not all pirating hurts a developer. I unfollowed him, he acts like a 14 year old drama queen on Facebook spamming my feed with dramatic emo updates.

    We have to expose people like ion1c. Let’s continue to support those groups like evad3rs dev team etc. Let cororate make there money some place else. Great article thank you.

  • Tre

    sorry spelling error corporate.

  • Wasiq Cheema

    Holy Moly… There were Ads??? Dayam! Sometimes, I really under-estimate my Ad-blocker. My friends around me keep telling me about adverts on YouTube and all… which I don’t see :)

    I would hate to think that he might be jealous of the evad3rs not asking or including him in this jailbreak? Who knows. But I agree with the fact that developers have a desire to get paid, wanting to get paid is fine too but the time and effort put into these jailbreaks is paycheck worthy. I have donated and will continue to do so regardless of who is taking the time to create these JB’s.

  • Gaara

    I just Donate some money but not release yeah how much money they still want?
