  • 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.

      Much like Madonna, Geohot would shrivel up and die if he didn't get a dose of attention now and then. This is just a way of shaking things up and keeping the cravings for the spotlight fresh.

      Whatever happens happens. Bring on the inevitably buggy program. What will it kill this time? Bluetooth connectivity?

      Too bad you didn't download "Handy Light" from itunes the other day. It secretly added tethering but disguised itself as a light app.

      Or, it could be either GeoHot or mikecohenn messing with everyone to see how many news sites take a tweet, that confirms absolutely nothing, and writes an article about it. One down.

      What took the dev team so long? I don't care about the unlock. I just want to jailbreak my iPhone 4.

      I have iphone 4 and 4.0.1 with a grandfathered unlimited plan. You guys think when the jailbreak comes out there will be a workaround the paid tethering plan? Just like the olden days with mywi and the tethering hack with cydia? jailbreaking is awesome, but tethering is my #1 reason right now to jailbreak.

      Enough with all this GeoHot and Comex coming soon crap... One of them just needs to drop the hammer and release one. Got us on the edge of our seats thinking that anytime now they will release it..

      If neither is waiting for 4.1, what are they waiting for???

      I saw this in a movie once.

      Beware.
      Really? You saw a movie where some genius decided to brick an unbrickable device? Must've gone straight to DVD.


      I personally would LOVE to see George release a JB just so everyone in here that's been talking smack about him starts jumping all over his pole again.

Never had an issue with GEOHOTZZZZ .. . will miss the guy if he really did quit.
      Ya comes had one bug and if you backed up prior like you should have it wouldn't have been an issue. Blackra1n had more than one bug and caused issues for subsequent jailbreaks. Good luck with geopansy

      i hope we get some ra1n really soon. as long as it works, why shouldn't he release it to the masses if he's worked so hard on it. but who knows, could just all be some hype bs.

      Mywi has been ported to 4.0 so you'll be able to use it as soon as jb is released.

      I'm still trying to figure out why I can enable tethering on my iPhone 4 even though I do not have the tethering plan and I am grandfathered into the unlimited plan.
