Nicholas Allegra, popularly known as Comex among jailbreaking community is no associated with Apple. The Cupertino Calif based giant rescinded the offer made to Comex after he failed to respond to an email asking whether he would like to continue his employment at Apple as a remote intern. Comex’s departure came just one year after he joined Apple as part of a wave of new intern hires.
Earlier today, Comex tweeted:
So… no point in delaying.As of last week, after about a year, I’m no longer associated with Apple.

Comex told Forbes’ Andy Greenberg – “Offer letters are taken rather seriously at Apple. I wasn’t too happy about it, but it didn’t seem like I was able to fix it,” he says. “So that’s what it is.” Comex didn’t comment on what he worked on during his internship at Apple, but hinted that there was more to his leaving Apple than a missed email. However, his email to Forbes claimed “it wasn’t a bad ending”, but declined to say more. He now plans to focus on his studies at Brown University.
For those of you who don’t know, Nicholas Allegra (aka, comex) is a prolific iPhone hacker and a lead developer behind tools such as Spirit userland Jailbreak and JailbreakMe.com which became immensely popular and helped users to jailbreak at least three million devices across the world.
What do you think about Comex departure from Apple? Will he join jailbreak scene and create JailbreakMe 4.0? However, terms of employment with Apple may preclude him working on future jailbreaking tools. Share your opinion!
