iPhone jailbreaker to take job at Apple

Comex to begin internship early next month

A new intern will be starting at Apple early next month by the name of Nicholas Allegra.

Allegra is better known as Comex, one of the hackers responsible for JailbreakMe, a series of tools that can be used to jailbreak iOS devices.

He revealed the news of his new role on Twitter, simply saying: "So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple."

Subsequently, after a largely positive reaction, he added: "Thanks for the congratulations everyone; I was expecting a more negative response :)".

Only last month a team of hackers including Allegra issued JailbreakMe 3.0, the first jailbreaking tool to work on the iPad 2.
