  • 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.

      He probably "quit" just to get annoying people to leave him the **** alone while he does his work. I wouldn't blame him at all if that's the case. There are a lot of very, very ungrateful and impatient people in the JB community.

      It doesn't matter who does a jailbreak first. I appreciate the work of people who do this for free because they love doing it. It's always funny to see how people get over something free.

      Except their comeback usually results worst than before they left

      So if you love Android so much why are you wasting your time in an iPhone forum? Makes sense.

      I think it's a joke/see if this tiny sentence makes a huge splash on the Internet. Which it already has....

      It does sound pretty logical that geo pulled a fast one on all of us, saying he was quitting so people would leave him alone so he could work in peace and quiet. We just have to wait and see, hopefully mike won't get bombarded with messages and tweets regarding the jailbreak now if he already has.
