The teenager behind porting Apple software to other devices has taken a paycheck

Hackers have had a long history of jumping ship to the other side when ti comes to taking a job at the company that they have been working against. This has been a popular plan of attack for Apple when it comes to hiring jailbreakers who have cracked open the system and found a way to do incredible things with Appleā€™s iOS and OSX software.

This is the case with winocm who has been recruited after being one of the most high profile jailbreakers of the most recent generation. He started in the game in 2011 with the iPhone 4S and has moved on to do incredible things like run Apple software on non-Apple devices, the Nokia N900 in particular.


In order to accomplish that, though, he had to do the unthinkable. Winocm rebuilt the core of the operating systems from the ground up, just as if he was creating it for the first time. When Apple did this preparing for the iPhone launch, they had an entire team of programmers working on it, but he did it on his own, without any help.

He joins the other hacker-turned-employees who have been making the move in the past few years. The man who created JailbreakMe, the website that made it easy to hack your phone by visiting a UR, became an intern two years ago and has disappeared form the scene since then. This kind of trend will only continue as more and more people try to break the rules that Apple sets, and then become tempted by the large paychecks.
