  • 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:

      I know Geohot is damn smart. He Just isn't trust worthy. I wish people wouldn't get their hopes up and start posting angry post when Geo hasn't updated his blog about the jailbreak in months and the blog becomes full of trolls linking stupid people to malware saying its geohots latest hack but Geo was busy so he asked them to link it, or some unknown Programer is like a god and has been secretly working with geohot on this project and is releasing it because Geo is too busy. The PS3 blog has more trolls then a "Im beautiful on the inside support group"
      This logic is flawed. Basically EVERY key dev/hacker in the iDevice community has in the past and/or is currently sitting on exploits at one point in time or another. Every single one of them only releases their jailbreaks when they feel like it. You are implying that the Devs should not sit on exploits at all and that they should release them as soon as humanly possible.

      If you're going to try and point this finger at Geohot then you had better point it at Comex and everyone else who sat on untethered jailbreaks for the new bootrom for so long.

      Omg while everyone else is trying to make jailbreaks for each firmware he's just gonna shut them all down with one massive jailbreak! He's such a beast. King JB, that should be his new name lol. Btw did he ever release his ps3 hack? I was expecting to be playing some bootleg games by the end of the year? Oh well he'll probably become the king of ps3 hacks as well! Lol

      He's smart, but lazy. I am so glad the Dev Team has the new Ultrasnow out. Blacksnow, for me, has been a piece of crap that constantly disconnects service, messes up things, and causes me to do a full restore about every 3 to 4 weeks. He develops something half way, doesn't test it, and then doesn't believe when people says it's full of bugs. He's smart for sure, but too immature to really follow through on that. Hopefully he'll mature some day, but my thought is that his pride will get in the way - and quite honestly, many of these posts don't help that swelled head.

      He'll release it in The Netherlands I think. Why would he write pwnEd and not just pwnd? NED stands for netherlands so who knows what might come out.

      @Zuaro Please stop that crappy speculations, be mature dude. It's hackers lingo.
      Why not in Germany, huh? He'll be there soon.

      At topic:
      He'll end as another wonder 'sillicone' kid - bought by mega world corporation (Apple/MS/whatever) or start his own businnes. He's smart byt not stupid, eventually learn what is it all about - $$$ and more $$$$$$.

      Everyone stfu about the trust s**t lol. I mean look at yourselves your acting like this some kind of serious war going on. z0mg teh traitor. like what are you risking a part from not getting your precious jailbreak which you paid nothing for lol. Damn nerds just calm down lol. It`s just a phone ffs.

      All I know is that when I needed a jailbreak and an unlock for my 3GS, geohot provided the fastest and easiest solution first.

      So I'll rely on him for my iPhone 4.

      i agree. I`m pretty sure geohot will eventually start his own company and become a billionaire, its just bound to happen.

      Ok, so now that the jailbreak has come a long way does the old fact that a freshly installed modified OS run faster than a modded OS after the install? ie - creating a custom firmware and installing it runs better than say... blackra1n modded OS's.

      Or does it not matter any more?

      who cares

      he's not the only one in the scene

      my current iPhone is on ios4 jailbroken and unlocked thanks to the dev team

      either he will release something or he won't, either way a jb and unlock will always come arround
