  • Planetbeing Tweets Progress: "Loader is done"


    All eyes in the jailbreak community were briefly directed this morning to Geohot's proxy Mike Cohenn on Twitter, who asked: "What's a good time to make it ra1n?" Despite initial expectations of an imminent jailbreak release, we're still waiting for any further info from the on-again-off-again "retired" Geohot and his back-channel messengers.

    Here's a sign of real JB progress...

    What is exponentially more exciting and pertinent to our jailbreak community is the tweet from Planetbeing just moments ago: "Loader is done. Now just need to make a new dylib for the main OS piece." We may not yet know when it's going to "ra1n," but a flood of attention is now rightfully being directed toward Planetbeing.

    Please, as a show of respect and courtesy, do not deluge Planetbeing with questions and comments. As noted in his subsequent tweet: "People are working their *** off on the jb. It's not like we sit around and talk about how much we enjoy watching users suffer." Planetbeing is clearly on top of things... and now that we're in the loop on the latest, there's a good chance more juicy info will be forthcoming.

      I've been out of work for a while. Nip/Tuck marathon thanks to Netflix. I'm almost done with season 5. I'll need to get Seasons 6 & 7 through less than legal means though since Netflix doesn't have them

      I was really pissed to find out Hulu doesn't offer any of the last season of LOST without paying. How in the world do they expect people to pay ten bucks and still watch ads? Smokin dope if they think I'm going to pay to watch ads, they shouldn't be there with a paid subscription.

      Last season of Lost... best off pretending it ended with 4. ABC won't want you to watch it for free anymore, why should they when the DVDs are out and theres no reason for you to get caught up since there's no more seasons.

      On an on topic note, can't wait for the jailbreak, take all the time you need to do it right guys, us intelligent folk are fine with waiting.

      I wonder why the community is so impatient with these guys.

      they shouldn't have to justify to us why it's taking awhile to do it. let them work and get the hell out of their way.

      kthanks.

      lol, i suspect that you havent even been outside of Broklyn, let alone the good old US of A, comments like yours just prove that some, not all, but some people from the US are so far up their own arses its untrue. I could start ranting about how without the rest of the world, the folks in the US would still be hunting buffalo (but the europeans hunted them all) and living in wigwams (but the europeans hunted the occupiants) You give the folks from the stats a bad name. Yes, the US has touched & changed many aspect of the world, some good, some not so good. i also suspect that a vast majority of the dev team (correct me if i am wrong) are not in fact from the US, but outside of the US, so get a grip with your "we are better than you ********" and ultimately we are only on about unrestricting a phone & not implimenting world peace & harmony. Rant over.

      awaits back lash.

      I think the only reason twitter has been silent is due to all of the crazy comments that are made if even one thing is mentioned about JB from comex or planetbeing. They are probably tired of all of the crap they read from non-appreciative people that want it NOW and don't care about anything else. I would probably keep any updates to myself too after reading some of the crap posted here.

      Many thanks and lots of appreciation from me to the guys responisble for the JB!

      So it looks like it's done and all they're working on is making it more user friendly (1 click jailbreaking fun )and working out the bugs.

      So it shouldn't be too much longer

      PlanetBeing just tweeted that the unlock will be ready with the jailbreak.

      Before any noobies ask, this is an unlock for the iPhone 4. 3GS new bottom will use ultrasn0w to unlock basbands up to 4.0.

      FYI someone asked Comex if it would be hours, days, or weeks and Comex tweeted back he's hopeful it will only be days. So I would expect something by next weekend but I wouldn't get my hopes up for this weekend.

      Well at least we know what the hang up is on the release, working out the kinks with the apple validation service for things like iTunes purchases, iBook purchases and Facetime. Although Saurik states it's not an issue every time, it's still an issue and its safe to assume that in order to protect themselves and their sanity from an onslaught of complaints, its best to deliver a jailbreak that keeps the iOS' functionality in tact.

      LOL @ Saurik's Video! 365 unread text messages.

      Just noticed I had a title upgrade this morning BUT my iPhone has always been a part of me since joining here 2+ years ago!

      Here's to 500 more posts and even more thanks!
