Noted iPhone hacker Nicholas Allegra — otherwise known as Comex — is no longer with Apple after working as an intern at the company for about a year. He tweeted that he was “no longer associated with Apple,” following that with a tweet about how he left because he “forgot to reply to an email.” Forbes contacted Allegra, who said he forgot to reply to an email offer to continue his employment as a remote intern. He also said he plans on focusing on his studies at Brown University, and has no current plans to work on more iOS jailbreaking tools. Allegra became widely known in the hacking community as the founder of browser-based iOS jailbreak tool JailbreakMe before accepting an internship at Apple. He has suggested that contractual obligations to Apple may prevent him from continuing iOS-related jailbreaking efforts, but that he may focus his time on other devices, such as Nintendo’s Wii U, instead.
