  • Is Geohot Ready With Jailbreak Release?



    A very curious post on Twitter is leading some to believe that a jailbreak release is imminent from Geohot. If so, the move would come as quite a surprise given the great fanfare that recently surrounded Geohot's alleged and self-proclaimed "retirement" from the jailbreak community - a move that saw Geohot cancel his Twitter account, set his blog to private, and assign good friend Mike Cohenn as his proxy, noting that all future messages would come through Mike.

    Today, one such message from Mike was received and it has the jailbreak community on a tentative high alert. The message: What's a good time to make it ra1n? Naturally, one could be reading way too much into this particular tweet, but Cohenn's relationship with Geohot is solid and it stands to reason that the jailbreak master may have simply thrown everyone off his scent to toil in private for the last few days of the jailbreak release prep. Of course, this is entirely speculation, but if we are, as advised by Geohot, to follow Cohenn for the latest jailbreak update, then perhaps this tweet is actually both meaningful and newsworthy.

    Needless to say, time will only tell what (if anything) this curious message actually alludes to. But keep your eye on Geohot's proxy today... as the question of "What's a good time to make it ra1n?" could very well be answered by Geohot very, very soon.

      Because it's supported by AT&T now and will switch you to the tether plan so I wouldn't mess with it.

      Have you even read this thread. Apparently they don't already know that, even when told by geo himself.

      I don't think they should release with all of the geo bashing. Screw the people who only want him around when he is releasing stuff

      I miss the old days of jailbreak when you had to READ the directions, FOLLOW the instructions, and actually THINK!
      The push a button to jailbreak is nice...but I don't believe it gives the end user an appreciation of all the work that goes into the code!
      Instead there is a lot of entitlement from people that think a j/b is their right.
      Dev's, Comex, or Geo..wherever it comes from...THANKS!

      The thing is, it's not to setup the tethering its acting as if it is already setup and ready to be used. I compared it to my friends iPhone 4 and his says setup, mine says, enable/"ON". I used it once already and didn't notice any changes so I'm sitting here clueless to be honest with you.

      Funny how Mike Cohen tweeted this the same time Comex tweeted he is not waiting for 4.1 Ra1n is going to come out right before Sprit get released to take all the hype away from Comex and direct it all towards Geohot and Ra1n. Think about it, people might take a look at spirit but if theur JB works good why worry about what spirit has to offer right now. MAKE IT RA1N!!!!

      This is a typical sport athlete move, they leave the game and say "its over i will not be back" then a year or 2 later they comeback and posibly make a big mark in the game and prove that they still relevent. George has to realize that this is no major sport. But i think he might release just to show to everybody who is king in this jb community. Tge thing is no one at least i can speak for my self think that he is any less of a genius, but with him trowing fusses like little girls, besides loosing fans, there are plenty of guys that ready to take his crown, like @planetbeing, @comex,@ih8sn0w, and many others, (sorry for not mentioning). So Mr. Hotz either you all in or you out. Its never good to lie and tease your biggest fans.
