iH8sn0w has also confirmed on his twitter that he will be attending and speaking at the upcoming jailbreaking convention in San Francisco, called JailbreakCon, on April 12(th) and 13(th )2014. "We are very pleased that iH8sn0w will be attending JailbreakCon 2014 and hope that he will discuss and demo his iOS 7.1 jailbreak at the event," says Craig Fox, founder of JailbreakCon. Speakers at the event will also include @saurik (creator of Cydia) and famous jailbreaker @pod2G (member Evad3rs).

Describing what to expect at the event, Cydia Community Manager Britta Gustafson says, "Jailbreaking fans will have an opportunity to meet fellow fans and legendary jailbreak hackers and tweak developers to discuss their iOS devices, jailbreak exploits, extensions, tweaks, and themes that can only be obtained by jailbreaking and getting Cydia."

"Apple employees have secretly attended past JailbreakCon events to consider innovative ideas for potential improvements to iOS itself, which are often inspired by the work of developers who focus on extending and modifying the iOS experience, something that developers can only experiment with when writing software for jailbroken devices," says Craig Fox, the founder of JailbreakCon.

JailbreakCon will be on Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13, 2014, at the South San Francisco Conference Center, 255 South Airport Boulevard, South San Francisco, CA. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for people under 18, and they include lunch for both days. Sponsors have generously subsidized the event in order to allow for affordable tickets prices, especially for teens.
