Previously we have reported that SHAtter jailbreak tool that can burn the exploit is expected to get leaked. The story goes like this: iPhone hacker and sn0wbreeze tool developer, iH8sn0w got the source code of SHAtter and handed it to iHaz3 who himself is not a member of any Dev team. According to some sources, iHaz3 started distributing SHAtter’s exploit that can burn the exploit.
The update on the story shows that it will not get leaked. After a short talk of Twitter, two senior members of Chronic Dec Team has brought peace and now it will not be published. The source code will be returned back to its original owners.
For those who are unaware of SHAtter tool: At the time when iOS 4.1 was released, an iPhone hacker named pod2g developed SHAtter exploit by collaborating and taking help of p0sixninja who is Chronic Dev Team member. SHAtter was developed to jailbreak iOS 4.1 but GeoHot was released with Limer1n to jailbreak all iOS devices running iOS 4.1. SHAtter was preserved for next generation devices including iPhone 5 and iPad new version iPad 2.

Update: comex tweeted: “oh. well, if anyone re-publishes the SHAtter leak in revenge for some script kiddy crap, I will personally ensure nobody forgets who did it”
