The accomplished developer, Abraham Masri, has left the jailbreak community. He will no longer work on public jailbreak tools and other projects anymore.

Although he’s going away, he has open-sourced all his jailbreak-related projects. This will allow other developers to build upon them and create even better tools for the community.

Here’s what Abraham posted on his official Twitter handle.

Abraham Masri quits

For the uninitiated, Abraham shot to fame with Saigon, an iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak for 64-bit Apple devices.

This jailbreak came at a time when everyone thought jailbreaking was dead and again sparked some life into the dying community.

Tweak developer, ArtikusHG will now improve it and implement further changes in this tool.

He was also responsible for the first semi-jailbreak tool, Houdini for iOS 10 and 11.

Apart from that, he was also actively working on the to.panga jailbreak for iOS 11-11.1.2 firmware.

Why did Abraham quit jailbreak development?

The young developer isn’t very vocal on social media and hardly answers any queries online.

He hasn’t given any specific reason as to why he’s leaving public development all of a sudden.

Here are a few theories that users have come up with regarding his decision.

  • He had an altercation with Saurik a few days back regarding Cydia so that might have led him to abandon all his projects. Moreover, stupid kids who ask for jailbreaks also don’t help matters much.
  • Some users are also speculating that a private security company hired him. This theory, of course, is too far-fetched for me to believe.
  • He works as a software developer for a company called Vertical Trail. I believe he quit because jailbreak development was getting in the way of his professional life.

As far as I know, he has no plans to return in the near future. He is indeed a great developer and it’s really sad to see him go.
