  • GeoHot Is Back! One Exploit To Rule them All! pwned4life


    Before you get excited, this is a news piece, not a notice of release. Patience is a virtue.

    It's been clear these days in jailbreaking land, as far as any new "ra1n" goes. However, that doesn't mean there is nothing going on. In fact, it's the complete opposite. Geohot has been rather quiet on Twitter these days, keeping to himself, however, behind the scenes, GeoHot has been hard at work creating, what I am starting to think, will be the next, best, jailbreaking tool.

    George Hotz (Geohot) has been in France recently, taking part in the Nuit Du Hack conference. Started in 2003 by Hackerz Voice team, and inspired by world famous DEF CON, “Nuit du Hack” is one of the oldest French underground hacking conference to date.

    During one of the "talks" held during the confernce, George gave a presentation in which he discussed the discovery of his newest bootrom exploit - which by the sounds of it, can eventually jailbreak or "pwn" every iPhone and iPod Touch available, including the iPhone 4. In fact, it sounds like he has something that could be used again and again for any new iPhone devices that are released in the future. The name he has given this project is "pwned4life"

    Keep your eyes peeled. I suspect we may see this tool surface in the next few days or weeks.

    Below is an 8 minute clip filmed during GeoHot's presentation:

      As long as his tool can activate a 3Gs on 3.1.3....which I assumed was able to be done by other things. Keep up the great work folks, I know I can't do any better.

      GeoHot will say he has a JB, He will post a video showing the JB, Then he wont release it. He is going to to the same thing he did with the ps3, He is going to get everybody excited then just blow us all off. Geohot is a very smart person. Im not saying he doesnt have the JB or doesnt know his **** but I think he must be in some ones pocket or something because he hasn't been releasing his exploits.

      The video is 9:11 long (edit: press the play button). I see that number every single day without fail either in the AM, or PM, or as an expiry date on some product. I'm not even joking.

      At some points he reminds me of Steve Jobs. Brilliant person but very mysterious in his ways.

      there's NO question he knows some intelligent geeky $H1t. it comes to the fact the he isn't down for the community. he's down for himself. and that makes him untrustworthy

      I agree he is like Steve jobs. I could see geo being in jobs pocket (finding an exploit and showing he has it, the jobs and/or apple pays him not to release it so every body updates and screws them selfs out of a jailbreak or people buy a phone or iPod counting on this exploit/jailbreak and jobs' deep pocket keeps it from coming out.) I mean the kid needs money to eat but if your gonna sell out don't tell every body a jb is on the way. That's just my personal opinion of what's going on.

      With this kind of ability, who cares if he's a little bit arrogant or "untrustworthy". I'm tired of all the so-called "devs" who keep baiting us with screenshots of their "soon-to-be-released" softwares, but never really deliver.

      I mean the kid needs money to eat but if your gonna sell out don't tell every body a jb is on the way. That's just my personal opinion of what's going on.
      Selling out would be to NOT release the tool in public and instead sell it to some dodgy website that will charge people a crapload of money to unlock/JB their iPhone.

      Geohot might only be after the fame. But can anybody blame him? He deserves it. Simple as that. I'm sure if any of you could do it first, you would make just as big a deal.

      Either way will be making big bucks down the way in life.
      My guess is that companies probably have tried but he turned them down.

      There's a difference, Geohot actually delivers. If he says he'll release something, he'll release it (cough*greenpois0n*cough).

      You can say whatever you want, but without Geohot, us non-AT&T users would still be waiting for some miracle from dev-team.
