Pod2G este fara discutie unul dintre cei mai populari membri ai echipei Chronic Dev, iar in poza de mai sus el este personajul din miloc. Inca de la varsta de 6 ani Pod2G sustine ca a inceput sa invete algoritmii si codurile dispozitivelor electronice, iar 2 ani mai tarziu era aparent capabil sa isi scrie propriul cod. Mai tarziu el a devenit DJ, insa se pare ca aceasta meserie nu l-a multumit, astfel ca acum este unul dintre cei care castiga zeci de mii de dolari o data la cateva luni prin lansarea unor solutii de jailbreak pentru iOS.
Cel mai interesant proiect la care a participat Pod2G pare a fi Absinthe 2.0, insa parerea sa s-ar putea schimba dupa lansarea iOS 6 si exploatarea vulnerabilitatilor pe care el si Chronic Dev Team le-ar avea pentru viitoarea versiune a sistemului de operare conceput de catre Apple. Mai jos aveti extrasul unui scurt interviu facut de Redmond Pie la HITB 2012.
Craig Fox: What age were you when you got into programming?
Pod2g: I was 6 years old. I started on my father’s computer ZX Spectrum, and he bought me a book with basic source code, I copied the stuff from the book, then I started to understand code and started to write my own at the age of 8.
Craig Fox: To date, what is the coolest project you have worked on?
Pod2g: Without a doubt the coolest project I’ve worked on is the latest Absinthe Jailbreak, and what we did with Corona + Rocky Racoon is very nice.
Craig Fox: What’s the worst thing to happen to you whilst making a Jailbreak?
Pod2g: Yes, I would say the release of Limera1n hurt us a lot at first, but in the end it was the right move, we feel as Limera1n worked on many more devices than SHAtter did. And I can say, as a few months have passed that this was the right move from him. So it wasn’t really the worst thing that happened but it was at the time.
Craig Fox: Have you coded anything for the App Store?
Pod2g: No, but I wanted to make one App for DJ’S, as I used to be a DJ and I felt there are no good Apps in the App Store for DJs to scratch. (I suggested Djay to him here)
Pod2g: Djay’s scratch algorithm is all wrong, it sucks. (So make a better one I said) to which he replied “I have but I have no plans to release it”.
Craig Fox: What do you think Apple will announce at WWDC this year?
Pod2g: I think Apple will for sure announce iOS 6 and a new iPhone.
