  • 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.”

      I'm fine with waiting as long as the dev team is doing legitimate work. I worry that they are just taking time to make one of those "Press the Button" programs like Spirit. I don't mind a few extra steps.

      Much respect to the father of jailbreaking, but what's up with these smart nerds not clipping their fingernails? Seriously takes 1 min 30 seconds for both hands...I would hate to see his toenails

      why is everyone insisting that he release the jailbreak. as he says in the video he does not make the jailbreak and for everyone saying "he who must not be named" is the real godfather of jailbreaking, he may have been the first but jailbreaking any idevice wouldnt be worthwhile without cydia, so i would give him more credit than "" anyday. think about it if the was no cydia what would we have. no rock no sweet apps provided by saurik,big boss and every other dev out there. so i would like to say Thank You Jay Freeman for doing what he does, and not to mention not crying about it either!

      The nerd in me would love a movie someday on all of their collective jailbreaking work. I really appreciate these guys.
      Yea I think an Indy Documentary on these guys and their work as well as the iPhone "underground" as a whole would make for an awesome documentary (kinda similar to the MacHead's and Cult of Mac documentary's that were made which aired on CNBC a couple times)..... I'd watch it for sure!

      So i guess my only concern is.. did they JB 4.0.1 as well? As i just got my iPhone 4 and of course it came with 4.0.1 right out of the box. :-/

      I guess it's a waiting game

      for those of you impatiently and imprudently demanding that the dev-team release the iphone 4 jailbreak, you may want to consider the following. the dev-team does not owe anyone anything. they do not have to create this jailbreak. they are not obligated to create this jailbreak. you also have to realize that the dev-team members have other, more important responsibilities than just jailbreaking - such as family, a career, friends. in essence, these folks have a life to attend to outside of their jailbreaking hobby, that to some extent may shock some of the ignorant and immature eager beavers out there clamoring for the release.

      if you are so eager to have a jailbreak, than as some other members have suggested, i think you should create one yourself. if you can't do it, then sit tight, and stop bugging the dev-team for a release date. it'll come out when they're ready to release.

      A three button version has been ready for 2 weeks. The last few weeks and the rest of next week will be focusing in on trying to get it to a one button jailbreak and cleaning up the gui.

      I'm always amazed how folks get on here and demand the JB be released now because they are tired of hearing about it and not being able to have it.

      It takes a lot of work to do this and for no financial gain, people should show some respect to the devs for their hard work.

      I kind of wish that they would release the 5-10 minute jb so that the people that can't stop badgering to release it can do it without patiently following instructions and end up bricking their phone.
