In a hope of involving community in developing jailbreaks, DarkMalloc introduces OpenPwn, a simple open source payload.
The goal of OpenPwn is to give developers a simple, clear and easy to understand starting point for developing jailbreak. OpenPwn is envisioned to be a place where anyone can contribute to existing payloads, create new ones, or share ones with others the open source payloads, created using the simple OpenPwn platform.
The main hope for OpenPwn is for it to be the place where people of any ability can go to share and contribute to a number of open source payloads, created using the simple OpenPwn platform.
The hardest thing for people new to the community is to learn. Many of the more experience hackers are busy with, well… hacking. They haven’t got time to teach people. This, I realized, was the biggest problem with the iPhone hacking scene.
OpenPwn is going to be somewhere where anyone can contribute to existing payloads, create new ones, or share ones with others. The whole idea of OpenPwn is for it to be entirely Open-Source. Anything I ever release will be open-source, so I hope yours will too!
All of this combined results in a really nice platform for iPhone payload development! Enjoy and contribute!
Note: OpenPwn is not a jailbreak or an unlock but a platform for developers to build payloads. OpenPwn is developed by DarkMalloc in an effort to strengthen the jailbreak community.
OpenPwn will be released on Saturday and it will support Mac OS for now. via [ModMyi]
