This evening we at iJailbreak have come across something very interesting. Currently the domain name JailbreakMe.com is on GoDaddy Domain Auctions for a price of $2,400. If you are involved in the jailbreaking community you will realize that JailbreakMe.com was the website associated with some of the first Userland Jailbreaks. This is why, with the iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak right around the corner, it intrigues me why the domain would be on auction.
Could this be because of today’s ordeal with the iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak leak?
As the domain name was privately registered we cannot find out who is currently the owner of the domain name JailbreakMe.com. Thus, we cannot point fingers to who is actually selling the domain name.
We would like to hear your thoughts on why the domain name is currently being sold in the comments section below.
Update #1: A recent tweet from Comex confirms that he doesn’t own JailbreakMe.com.
Update #2: JailbreakMe 3.0 has just been released!
