Saurik, aka Jay Freeman, has confirmed via a post that he is continually working on Cydia, his brainchild, for iOS 11. The post was in response to the iOS jailbreaking community, who questioned the developer’s enthusiasm for his work.
Saurik said that he has been losing ‘a lot of money each month on Cydia’ and that he has a day job, the pay of which he has to balance with his Cydia works. Presently, he is working on the updates of iOS 11 despite the challenges he has to face in order to continue. This clearly screams out the passion out of the developer and he stated the same at the end of the post.
I have managed to maintain my passion for the concept of jailbreaking as I truly believe in the concept.
Following this conclusive line, he pasted the link of the post that he was responding to.
The screenshot of the response was published by Reddit under r/jailbreak news, and it has already gained 137 comments. Most of the iPhone users have backed up the effort and passion of Saurik as usual, and many even expressed wishes to provide him with financial support.
Saurik is one of the most popular developers among iPhone fans because of his creation of Cydia and his string of developmental works in jailbreaking since 2008.
On the other hand, the Reddit community previously pushed away numerous developers but Saurik. While he earned true followers, the other side of the coin, many critics still doubt his passion. The good news for iOS jailbreaking fans is that his tone in the post suggested that he has no time to pay heed to criticisms and is undeviatingly focused on carrying out his Cydia works.
