Stay away from these fake unlock and jailbrk sites

Perhaps one of the biggest problems in thejailbrkcommunity today, apart frompiracy, is the growing amount of scammers. These are sites or services that promise to provide users withjailbrkandunlocksolutions, in return for money or other malicious intent.And what’s worse is, often times these services are very mislding, claiming to do things such as “jailbrk iOS 6.1.4″ or “downgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 5″—which we all know aren’t possible yet. So we’re highlighting some of these sites in order to warn users to avoid them…Luckily, the information wasn’t very hard to come by. The folks over atthe iPhone wikijust posted a huge list (or updated a previous one, we couldn’t tell) of URLs for dozens of so-called ‘jailbrking’ and ‘unlock’ sites, as well as some details about what they do. For – Sells evasi0n / redsn0w for $ – – Forwards to – Sells unspecified tool for $49.99iphonejailbrkplus.- Sells evasi0n / redsn0w for $ – Sells unspecified tool for $ – scam, all set up in advance for iOS – Sells evasi0n / redsn0w for $29.95per – Sells an unspecified tool for $ – Sells evasi0n / redsn0w for $ – Sells an unspecified tool for $9.95 or $ – Copy of pod2g’s – sellsPurpleRestornd other internal tools at high price promising they’ll allow to downgrade any device/firmware and to install any firmware on any deviceAnd there aremany, many more.I can’t begin to tell you what a grt tool this is. I get questions and comments from rders and Twitter followers all the time asking about these services and if they’re rl. And while my boilerplate response is if you haven’t seen it on iDB, it’s probably not legit, this will help.It’s sad, rlly, that these guys probably make good money by either reselling other people’s work, or essentially stling their money. But here’s hoping that shining more light on the scammer scene will help put a dent in their business.
