  • Saurik Interview : Jay Discusses the iPhone 4 Jailbreak
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDj_Q2HuhPw[/ame]


    The folks over at MakeItWork have posted a video interview with Saurik, Jay Freeman, the developer of Cydia.

    Jay demonstrates his iPhone 4 jailbroken and running cydia, using Comex and Planetbeing's current exploits. Both Comex and planetbeing have been actively tweeting on twitter about their work and progress, most recently indicating that a release date is right around the corner.

    This video is a great source of information for those that are waiting for the newest release and want to understand what is currently going on. The developers are busy as usual, and it shows, Saurik has 365 Unread Texts and 324 Unread Emails on his iPhone 4.

    He talked to Eric and the clever team about TEDx American Riviera, which will be taking place on 10/10/10.

    He joined Jeremy for an on-air interview for this weekend’s show on KSFO 560. Don’t miss it, it will air THIS Saturday at 3pm! In this extended interview Jay will be talking about the history of jailbreaking, his foray into the Dev Team and becoming an ubiquitous name in the iPhone community. It’s easy to say he’s the “Godfather of Jailbreaking.”

      Does anyone know what changes iOS 4.1 (beta) has in it? If this jailbreak is around the corner you know Apple will try and close the exploit before iOS 4.1 releases. Considering last year that iOS 3.1 went public September 9, 2009 when Apple held their music event I am almost certain iOS 4.1 will debut around that time this year as well.

      If you have the proximity sensor issue, it will be fixed there.

      I don't have this issue, and nor do I have the drop calls issue.

      It's my understanding that the jailbreak itself is done right? Why won't they just release the jailbrake? There are a lot of us that just want to jailbrake our iPhone 4. At least 75% of us is still under contract with AT&T.

      PLEASE just release the jailbreak separately for those of us that don't need or care for the unlock

      This is only a slap in the face for those who hate jailbreaking... these guys are the ones who make them, if you want a jailbreak right now, go find an exploit and make it yourself. These guys aren't required to do any of this, and you are not entitled to a jailbreak either.

      I for one can't get over these people seemingly begging for the damn release. Yeah, we all want it (well I know I do), but asking for them to "just release it", is foolish. Let them finish up. I have much more respect for the dev-team working to ensure the release is STABLE, and EASY for those of you that are clueless. Actually, the more time that passes before the release, the better I feel that the release will be solid.

      Cool to see Saurik in video! An interesting kind of celebrity thing goin' on. Fame without fortune. Admired by geeks, but, unknown to general population. A very cool thing!

      Agreed. And unless he hid the WiFi bars, he was on 3G.

      Half the fun of jailbreaking is checking the dev teams tweets and modmyi every 30 minutes to see if the jailbreak is rdy for release!! It's exciting!! Chill out people, u want them to release a un finished jailbreak that could possibly brick ur phone?

      Maybe apple can learn another lesson from the dev team... Make sure it works for EVERYONE before u release!

      But for all the people DEMANDING the JB NOW, don't worry it'll be here soon!
