Few days ago, p0sixninja, an iOS hacker and ex- member of Chronic Dev team tweeted a mystoreous messaging claiming that something bigger than the jailbreak is coming soon. He also claimed that he can “get a copy of any apple internal firmware, aka signed version of ssh of telnet”, which could have significant implications for jailbreakers.
He has now recvealed some of his plans by tweeting the following message: “Ok, I hate redsn0w, I hate sn0wbreeze, and I hate 6.1.3. I’m ready to get this #openjailbreak off the ground.” Basically, Hill plans to release a repository of open source jailbreak components called OpenJailbreak. He tweeted:

Essentially it’s going to be a repository of open source jailbreak components that I created over the years. So much of my code has been hacked up and incorporated into other projects, it’s becoming very fragmented. There’s no central repository to maintain all this code, to allow other developers to submit patches or help layout a roadmap for what new features and abilities will be added in the future.
P0sixninja also told iFans that “this is just a small part of an ultimate plan.” He didn’t further explained his statement but there has been speculation that he is in possission of a low-level bootrom exploit with great jailbreak capabilities.
Surenix is the guy working on the website for OpenJailbreak repository. With P0sixninja about to reveal something big and Ryan Petrick revealing iOS 7 jailbreak on iPod Touch, the jailbreak scene is finally showing some activity after some quiet time. We cannot wait to see what Hill has got up his sleeves.
