Jailbreaking has been there as long as Apple has been making its iPhones. Apple has always discouraged Jailbreaking and considered it as a not-so-good activity and has been releasing patches to make jailbreaking difficult.
Now can you possible think that Apple would allow an app in the official App store if it claims that it will Jailbreak your device? Definitely no! But in a surprising move or we call it a hilarious mistake, Apple approved an App into its app store that claimed that it can jailbreak your device. What was more disturbing was that the App was just a low quality scrolling game rather than a jailbreak app.
Here is a screen shot of the Applications description;
The funny thing about the description is that it is misleading to some extent but does not claim that it will install Cydia so it cannot be called completely false. Its price is $9.99 in the App Store and some people purchased it as well. Its reviews were mixed with some customers praising it and others demanding a refund.
Apple would certainly not ask the developer to refund as Apple has a reputation for giving no refunds. However, the description has now been modified to a clearer one so that no one confuses it with the Cydia Jailbreaking. Besides, why would a sane person pay $9.99 for a Jailbreaking app when it can be done for free!
Apple has just removed the Fake Jailbreaking app from the App Store. The few unlucky guys who paid for it will be frustrated!
