  • 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.

      even if he didnt retire, we should ban this fool and dont listen to his lies.

      Dev Team is the only serious group of "hackers" doing some decent job.
      Umm, k?

      You do realize how funny it looks seeing you call someone a "fool" after they read how and what you wrote in that quote right? Also, you're talking about MySpace as being the source, and basis of your facts? Did you find this factual nugget of info below his list of favorite emo songs, or is it in his Top 8?

      Fool? No. Irony.

      Don't forget, Comex only has a userland jb....as far as I know, so there is no upgrade path unless a different exploit is discovered.

      We don't know what Geohot has but if it is different, then either Comex can keep his exploit on a later fw or I guess they can compete.

      But whatever, please all the whiney babies STOP crying and whining and when you don't get your baby food, STOP "F***ing" everybody....LOL

      We need all the devs in the jb scene as we can get. Attitude or not, they are good if they deliver.

      Forgive me if I don't immediately download geohot's JB. I don't like "strange twists."

      GeoHot is so odd. If you want to work in private, then don't go online where people can express their opinions. I doubt people forced him to look at comment, or forced him to open his email and read them.

      GeoHot = butthurt. I'd rather keep my iPhone jailed than kiss his nerdy A ss.

      That's certainly true in my case... many smartphones are coming out that blow the stock iPhone away, but nothing can touch a jailbroken iPhone and all it can do. I am the exact polar opposite of an Apple "fan-boy", but I have to give credit where its due, and ALL that credit goes to the JB Devs. As a result, I understand the frustrations of having the extremely limited stock iPhone 4 without a jailbreak. I am just as hell-bent on jailbreaking my new iPhone 4 as any of you, but all the bashing needs to stop. I realize that it's a frustration venting outlet for many, but nothing good really comes from it, and it's been going on for far too long now.

      I am a genuinely nice and laid back person, and even I have let GeoHot's recent behavior raise my blood pressure. But the bottom line is, beggers can't be choosers, even though I get a bit more stressed every time I see my new iPhone 4 sitting on the charger displaying "NO SIM" while I am still using my jailbroken 3GS.

      FOOD FOR THOUGHT...
      Think of all the people you are calling names and having pissing contests with today... you may need their help after the jailbreak comes when you can't get your apps or themes working!!

Doesn't this thread fly in the face of that?? Just asking!!
      This forum reports news and things that may be of interest to the community. Just because some don't consider it news, doesn't mean others feel the same. I would ignore what you don't need.

      Sorry to all GeoHot haters but, I think he is great. Back on 3.0 I used his Purplera1n within 10 minutes of activation. Since then he has been a massive influence on the Jailbreak community, with Blacksn0w: the first 5.11.07 unlock. But also Blackra1n, the first 3.1.x jailbreak. So just give him some credit as I expect a large majority of us have used at least one of his tools. Until anyone learns to code jailbreaking utilities then we should all respect our devs and the work that they do as after all it's for NO cost!

      No bashing needed I will be happy with whoever makes the JB for 3GS & 4 possible. Both Geo & the dev team have my respect and my thanks for doing the work they are doing for the iPhone community.

      So GL to both "clans" and Thank you!

      With that noted all tweets and comments like this one are just annoying now. "When should we make it ra1n?"; "Final step...get ready"; "My device is jailbroken...your will be...soon!"

      How about giving updates every now and then a.k.a once a week on saying the eta of the jailbreak. Even if you say a month, and it turns out to be two...Saying stuff like this just gets annoying and proves you attention whore *cough*geosnot*cough*
      Probably wouldn't rub those whome you supposedly respect the wrong way, if you weren't calling them attention whores. You have a valid point that is hard to hear over the name calling.

      Actually he's been a massive influence since the first iPhone.

      Here's a way to look at this...
      A: GeoHot still wants some attention, and is trying to at least keep his name looming (without being harassed).
      B: GeoHot is jealous that he was beat to the punch on 3.1.3. And he wants to release right before the Devs "This time"...

      Just a thought. It's not my belief or opinion of this situation.... Just a possibility.
