Apple Prevents In-Store Jailbreaking By Blocking JailbreakMe.com

We already reported you that Apple has developed fix for the newly released JailbreakMe 2.0 Star in the next iOS update. While working on the fix, Apple watched a lot of videos leaking in the wild showing jailbreak in Apple Stores, so they decided to stop that, Apple blocked http://www.jailbreakme.com from being opened by pranksters, instead redirect it to Apple.com

According to 9to5mac:

We figured it would be time for Apple to finally stop their iOS devices from being Jailbroken on their own turf, so we did a quick Twitter search. It appears that when JailBreakMe.com is accessed on any device at an Apple Store, the DNS forward users back to Apple.com’s IP address.

According to CultOfMac:

Inundated with a deluge of iPhone 4 jailbreaks at their retail locations, Apple has finally locked down access to JailbreakMe from inside the Apple Store. If you try to go to jailbreakme.com from within an Apple Store now, a DNS forward will just route you back to Apple.com.

Good move Apple, but developers still have other exploits and the fight will go on again and again!
