  • GeoHot Jailbreaks iPhone 4, Says Shove Off


    GeoHot - or as his mother knows him, George Hotz - has jailbroken the iPhone 4, and tossed up an image on his blog today of the 4 running Cydia. He is also just plain annoyed with the masses of people constantly barraging with one single question "hey man when are you going to release a jailbreak I want the Cydia that give the apps that give me the total power I can donate $5 when is it released" Says GeoHot: "As far as a release goes, it probably won't happen from me."

    He dispels a couple rumors from the web as well - "limera1n is little more than a raindrop on a website; it was never mentioned by me previous to this post." and also "pwned4life is a complete invention of some blogger in a basement somewhere. When I said pwned for life, I was referring to the original iPhone, 3G, and Touch; which of course are, by the aptly named PwnageTool."

    There's a single sentence which seems to sum up GeoHot's annoyance with jailbreaking about now at the bottom of his post: "Again, please don't ask for release dates. Every person that does makes me want to release a little bit less." And not to disappoint Señor Hotz, the comments on the post are already littered with folks asking how to jailbreak various devices. I chatted with GeoHot this morning, and he basically rehashed the same annoyance he published this morning - which makes sense. I mean, give the guy a break - if he had a release or a release date, he'd publish it. Repeating the same question over and over to him (or comex, or planetbeing, or MuscleNerd, or any of these guys) isn't going to speed anything up. They're all working for you, so give the guys a break and wait patiently for a public tool - it IS coming, from whomever. C'est la vie... anyway, that's what we're for. Feel free to ask right here if the jailbreak is released.

    Nice to notice it seems the Cydia in the picture is already in high-res for the iPhone 4, although with some weird aliasing in the background. Looks like Cydia is ready for iPhone 4 when iPhone 4 is ready for Cydia.
