  • limera1n - new from geohot


    geohot's next jailbreak tool will most likely be called limera1n. He's been showing proof of blackra1n working on iPhone OS 4.0, as well as a jailbroken iPad. Well, limera1n.com has now popped up with nothing on it but a limey version of the blackra1n icon.

    Looks like geohot picked up limera1n.com March 27th, according to the whois. Checking the whois shows the registrant info to be the same for both blackra1n.com and limera1n.com, albeit with a different phone number.

    edit: ok, ok, address removed due to excessive comments, although it's public info and I'm sure if there's anyone who is well aware that info is public and doesn't care if its shared, its George Hotz.

    geohot has mentioned the latest approach he's working on would work on all devices (whether or not he decides to package that in the GUI is another matter of course) - and the release of a new name certainly lends the thought there's more than a simple update to blackrain. We'll ask for the full details next time we see geohot and see what he's willing to tell - an iPad/iPhone/iPod touch jb tool all wrapped up behind a shiny green icon would be nice.

    EDIT: As far as the new name... geohot even mocks himself a little on that one. Viewing the source of the page at limera1n.com shows the following comment:
    thanks, shahpriyankd, for the tip

      Why would you guys post all of this personal information on here? His address and phone number? Didn't you even try to think twice about doing that? I hope all of that info is fake....for his sake.

      Whois information is public. Go try it yourself. You can do it to any website, and it is up to the owner of the website whether or not they want their information public.

      You would be surprised what information you could can get if you just ask, whether through internet services which are free and legal, as well as government documents. You have the right to pursue knowledge

      Even if it was public, I know that's unwanted publicity.

      Even if my facebook profile is public, I don't want to see it on some site.

      Just because its public knowledge doesn't mean its publicly and obviously written up and displayed on a website for every search engine and nerd and psychopath to crawl. Not every noob or psychopath knows how to whois a website or what 'whois' even is, but they definitely know how to dial a phone number or get step-by-step instructions through Google Maps to Hotz' home.

      The address and phone number information should be taken down. The editor needs to exercise some responsibility and common-sense here.

      All I want is a tethered jailbreak that works... meaning when I restart my iPhone 3gs, or iPad, it restarts like any normal device. Having to not worry if the battery dies, then searching for a computer so I can boot it has become pretty annoying. I am so suprised that this was never corrected. BLAH... Oh well I'll see what the new Lime jailbreak has in store!

      Last I checked, George didn't live in New Jersey.. So this is obviously not his address.

      Um, I guess "lime" could be considered a color if Crayola has any say in the matter.

      I would think Geohot would use WhoIs Privacy.

      If anyone thinks young Mr Hotz doesn't know that whois information is public and know that it will be published really doesn't know him very well. If it's there it's because he wants it to be there.
      Stupid is one thing he most certainly is not.

      Just cause it's public, doesn't mean we need it reposted for everyone to see. Might be the wrong Kyle Matthews, but what if it's not? I'd feel very violated.
