  • 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.

      Geohot fans vs. Dev-team fans

      Let the bashing begin...all out of a twitter post which confirms absolutely nothing. Another rumor on Messany's checklist

      Enough with the hype already, either make it ra1n or let the drought continue. I have nothing but respect for what he has accomplished in the past, but this **** measuring contest is getting old. Looks like he was just waiting for Comex to release his and sneak in ahead of him.

      I'm under the impression that someone grabbed his twitter name and is pretending to be him

      I look forwad to mikecohenn release of ra1n. I think he will come out with it before the devs do...as usual, geohot comes through somehow before the devs. You cant hold something to long becuse it will eventually backfire..I hope that is a proven fact with ra1n

      Wow this guy just craves the attention and drama. He would be an excellent fit for the dumb hoes on the show "The Real Housewives of New Jersey".

      Seriously, release it if your going to. If not, then go back to the hole you climbed in a week or so ago when you said you were leaving.

      More unneeded theatrics and rumors. They seem to crave the attention and pulling peoples chains. These stupid posts (on twitter) are unnecessary. Are they even serious anymore?
