  • 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:

      Damn now that dude pays attention to detail for sure.

      He explained a problem that Apple had by not checking standards. So in return Apple decided to start checking those standards (like Geo explained). But at the same time Geo was smart enough to know that Apple would be dumb enough not to check the checked standards. So basically he knew they would forget to double check. Which meant that when he discovered the first problem, he already knew what the 2nd problem was going to be. And Apple played right into his hands with it. Damn that dude knows his ish for sure.

      Why doesnt Apple just hire him to find flaws in their system and fix it, LoL.

      I've said it before, the Dev Team are The Beatles and Geohot is Brian Wilson. Even though he's the underdog, when he's at the top of his game, this man pulls off things that The Dev Team can't even dream of as a creative unit. I may get crucified for that analogy but it makes perfect sense.

      Apple makes hundreds of millions of dollars from us buying their devices BECAUSE of the exploits.. Could you imagine how boring these damn things would get if noone ever unlocked or jailbroke them..

      They will never release a "fool proof" iPhone..

      I dont see why they dont just have them "open" to begin with

      I'm betting he won't release this till the iPhone 4 comes out. That way, in case Apple tries making a few mods to prevent the next new jailbreak, he can figure it out and then release it. But GeoHot, I seriously don't know how all us jailbreakers would be like if you hadn't shown up at the scene. Thanks

      I know you want to believe this, but the fact of the matter is that the majority of users run their phones stock.
