  • 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.

      well according to Comex's twitter, someone asked him "looking at hours, days or weeks?" and Comex's reply was "days, I'm hoping"

      I'm new to this community but really appreciate the work and effort of comex and the entire dev team. This stuff isn't easy otherwise we would all be doing it lol.

      Not directed at anyone in particular but we should all show some respect and just let them get on with it. We're being kept in the picture and thats all you could ask for. People constantly asking "when's it coming?" or "how long?" isn't going to make the JB release happen any faster.

      BTW I'm looking fwd to my JB iPhone 4

      Geohot wont release anything, He will just make a video and post it. He will say don't use the pb/comex jailbreak or unlock because then his wont work. Oh and he will say that it is an unpatchable jailbreak so people will wait................4 months from now he will say he is working on some personal issues and he doesn't know when or if it will be released. As of lately geo has been really flakey and also IMO a arrogant *****. He screwed a million or so people out of linux on the PS3 because he found an "exploit" and made a custom firmware that no one ever saw. At least the iphone community has not lost any huge features because of him.I hate Geohot i have never and never will use any of his tools. Great Job Comex and Planet Being. As Soon as I get my white Iphone 4 I will donate My 16 gb black iphone 4 to comex.

      I wouldnt doubt if he released a jailbreak soon. Hes unpredictable. And all the people who love to bash geohot just move on already. Please.

      Everybody should respect the people that make jailbreak software!
      They dont have to share it with the world. They could just use it for themselves. I know id never be able to make jailbreak software, not in a million years. That why I will just wait very patiently

      Yeah it is pointless for them to tweet till they are actually close or finished i think

      honestly after doing C++ myself, it is a pain to do! So this post is a thank you to all the programmers actually taking the time and effort to work on the jailbreak and unlock. I'm a advanced computer user with mods done to xbox 360, ps3, psp and the wii systems. Its easy to follow a tutorial but to actually write the code is a *****. I'm looking foward to the jailbreak but i can wait as long as it takes. I know the feeling of a bad compile. Take the time and do it right! Most unlock and jailbreak people dont want to deal with it again! Do it right the first time! People that are waiting try writing a program in C++ and see how you feel. Its not as easy as people make it seem. I'm sure alot of Computer Science majors and graduates can agree with me.

      I'll wait as long as I have to. I can trust the dev team.

      Quick question, do the devs do this as side work and have other jobs, or is this it? For curiosity's sake.

      Jailbreaking is a hobby for the devteam. Devteam doesnt even accept donations. Individuals might accept donations but there is no way they could live off them alone. Maybe for a month. lol

      you know its all the hard work that THEY put in to help everyone and all some people care about is them selfs. Let them work and do what they do best and be grateful someone can do what they are doing.
