  • 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 totally agree with this, it's gotten old fast. With all these damn noobs, you can't blame Geo for getting out (if he did) nonstop harassment from cry babies. The Devs work benefit us all, and it's there choice if they want to share the wealth. If I were them I'd tell 95% of these people to f*** off!

      Whops I know, I should of rephrased that to "recently" as it

      They share info between each other. Sometimes it is not always the same exploit.

      I hope this gets released just to watch everyone who complains about Geohot still use his software. Why cant everyone just STFU until you are able to release a jailbreak yourself.

      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.
      Coming to theaters near you! Killera1n: Revenge of Geohot! rofl. I do sure hope Geohotz does indeed release a JB which also works for ipt3 ios4 untethered. I can wait, like others have suggested, Geohotz "retired" just so he could have nobody to bug him.

      It would be a shame if he left. 1st baseband unlocker, 1st 3gs JB, 1st iPad JB, prominent hacker of the PS3 comT

      Dev Team, Geohot...makes no difference to me. I as a user benefit regardless of which of them is first. They all work hard so that people like me can enjoy a good jailbreak.

      Dont get me wrong, but its normal for people to show this type of emotion and ridicule against Geohot, I too donated in the past, to help him out, and the last thread I saw was him retiring, so if he is retireing, and then comes out with a jailbreak for the Iphone 4 , that would be great, but if this is just another, thread, just so he wants attention, I can bet that if he had any credibility , he will lose it all
