  • 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.

      Crossing my fingers. I am dying for a iPhone 4 jailbreak. My iPhone seems very naked without it. Handy Light filled a little of the void though

      ALERT: This will be Geohot's way of getting back at the community that turned its back on him. His latest effort will do nothing but brick all of your iPhones.

      I saw this in a movie once.

      Ra1n would be nice. But, IF it does, I'm staying under my umbrella until someone else tries it first.

      I don't trust this...as it could be a ploy to brick all our phones and make them hefty paperweights...I myself will go for comex jailbreak.

      Nothing happens till it happens.

      Personally I"d rather see a Spirit release since the dev team don't usually port for untethered jailbreaks for the new bootrom. If Spirit comes out it is applicable for untethered jailbreaks on the new bootrom which is all I care about personally..... no matter where it comes from.
