It’s quite strange that the app managed to sneak past Apple ‘s stringent approval process even after the developer had named it “Jailbreak”.
If you’ve been following us, then you probably know that there is currently no jailbreak available for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5 or iOS 5.0.1. Please also note that the jailbreaks released by iPhone Dev team are available for free, so please do not get fooled into paying for a jailbreak tool and when in doubt, please feel free to shot us a email.
Based on the Twitter timelines it looks like the fake jailbreak app was available for two days. We’re quite sure that Apple will refund the money to users who ended up buying the app and suspend the developers license. Let’s hope that they also review the approval process to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
It looks like the fake jailbreak app was available in the App Store for more than two weeks. According to
