Jailbreak is strongly associated with hacking copy protection, allowing pirated software to work on devices. However, at the same time, people can run on such devices programs developed by third-party developers for purposes that do not violate copyright law.

According to the expert, namedobj does not contain code related to circumvention of the mechanisms of protection against piracy. The exploit includes a boot loader that allows you to receive payload through port 9020 and then execute it. The developer also posted a test payload that the user can download after launching the exploit to access the debug menu.
