    iPhone Jailbreaking Dies Slowly as Major Repositories Shut Down

    There was a time when the first thing tech-savvy iPhone owners used to do after buying a new smartphone was to jailbreak it and escape Apple’s locked playground.

    But with the release of new iPhone generations, more secure iOS versions, and even more restrictions in place, it became increasingly difficult to jailbreak Apple’s devices, forcing many enthusiasts, hackers, and researchers either to stick with the locked version of iOS or change teams and go for Android.

    And now it’s even more obvious that the days of iPhone jailbreaking are numbered, as two of the biggest repositories on Cydia are going dark – Cydia repositories were used by the jailbreaking community as third-party sources to download content for unlocked iPhones.

    ModMyi and ZodTTD/MacCiti repositories both announced they’re shutting down, leaving users who don’t want to give up on this hobby with just one major option: BigBoss. It goes without saying that there are now concerns that BigBoss could be retired as well, though no information from administrators has been provided just yet.

    IMO, I think that this is a good thing, only because that there is a greater chance of getting malware or something really bad (like a bricked phone) then having a phone that is locked down to Apple's own store where you know that (mostly) everything is legal.

    People Jb they devices for customization free apps and games. I see the people are changing those have Jb devices preserve their devices on Jb available versions. There are profiles available to stop the device from updating. Yeah, this is a big security risk and the team is making money by selling their forum subscription.example Vip member of the forum. Vip member can access exclusive hacks and other free peoples only free games and hacks. No matters Jb is alive or dead peoples are getting stuff easily. Person jb his or her device know that jb is unstable because of no root present in iOS but many are working to get this back.
    Jb is present but Dev fears from apple because apple released patch of Vulnerability they found in iOS. Instead of JB people buy the subscription to forums and they're doing very well. Many popular games are available pre-hacked and themes.
