  • 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.

      I understand Geohot's need to postpone the release, and I respected it. But now he is being (to say it nicely) "annoying."

      He is being to vague about
      something that should be shared with all of us. If he doesn't release the jailbreak, Fine! But don't bother us anymore, either give us a straight answer, or just shut up and hide away in your "iWorld."

      I don't meen to be a little mean or pushy, but he's playing around with us. Is he looking for attention? -maybe- but a thread like this, is not going to help.
      Let's just wait for the ra1n to fall!
      -!Or Screw Him!-

      I'll believe it when I see it!! Like another poster said, I thought this guy quit the game......and some people wonder why so many people are upset waiting for a tool to be released. Threads/News Posts like this one only stir the pot even more. Some people, including mods on this forum, said to ignore GeoNot and only focus on the Dev Team. Doesn't this thread fly in the face of that?? Just asking!!

      I deserve a jb because I said so. If u don't deserve one than don't use it when it comes out

      On a side note, geohot's cousin just twittered that he can't wait to go snowboarding this winter. I'm sure this is code that the new ultrasn0w will be released sometime this winter. Let's all discuss the implications of that for 10 pages or so. Can't wait for the unlock. I need it now, not this winter! What a ***** his cousin is.

      2. GeoHot is a drama queen? Why are you attacking someone you don't even know? He's just some guy that decided to do a jailbreak for free for everyone and people get mad that he doesn't release what you want when you want it.

      3. $700 phone? Hahahahaha, why did you pay that much?

      4. "We all deserve a jb." You can't be serious. We don't deserve anything. We aren't entitled to jailbreaking our phones. We're lucky that we're able to unlock and jailbreak phones at all, but it certainly isn't a right.
      3. You pay that much to not be on contract

      4. Actually we do deserve to unlock and jailbreak. It's actually against the law to lock to a carrier in some countries. That doesn't mean we deserve someone doing the work for us though.

      You're a clown. Get a new catchphrase too. That "you sir fail at life" is in a majority of your posts. D-bag.

      You know he's cranking one out to threads like this all over iPhone forums. Bad or good, its attention he so desparatelly craves/commands.

      As he's done before, he's probably just trying to show up the dev team. Personally, I'm almost inclined to wait on comex & the dev team...

      He's brilliant kid, but a douchebag none the less.

      You're reasoning as to why [you] deserve a jailbreak is because it's against the law IN SOME COUNTRIES to lock to a network? Wow. You should call Apple and at&t and explain this to them. Please record their response. I wanna hear someone else laugh at this reasoning also. Thanks.
