MuscleNerd is one of the most prominent members of the jailbreak community, and his vast knowledge has helped the iPhone Dev Team continue to update and improve its Redsn0w utility in the progressive cat and mouse battle. Apart from jailbreaking, MuscleNerd and other Dev Team members continue to dabble in the unlocking game as well, and with the Cupertino's sought-after device mostly sold subsidized - i.e. locked under a contractual agreement with a carrier - there are plenty of iPhone users on the lookout for an unlock.
It appears that famous jailbreak hacker MuscleNerd visited Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino earlier today, starting rumors of Apple potentially hiring another key member of the iOS jailbreaking community.
According to a tweet posted by @MuscleNerd, a member of the iPhone Dev-Team, which has authored many jailbreak-related tools and tutorials, iOS 5's new automatic over-the-air updates shouldn't make jailbreaking harder.
Two interesting little jailbreak tidbits to come out of hacker MuscleNerd's Twitter account today with news of an untethered 4.3.1 jailbreak as well as his thoughts on rumors of a spy in the jailbreak camp.
MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev-Team has confirmed today that the next version of Redsn0w will include an option which will allow you to untether your iPhone jailbreak on iOS 4.2.1 without having to restore your device.
