  • 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.”

      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!
      No offense but someone who checks modmyi every 30 minutes for an update on jailbreak release should not make a habit of telling others to chill That being said I'm sure there are many that are very much worse

      @exNavy: He said that they had just jailbroken that one. THAT'S why there are no SHSH blobs on file.

      you know what's really cool? saurik is not arrogant, as the interview proves. he, like many others, just wants to control the device he paid for. oh, and though he may have 324 unread e-mails, he does reply. he manages time to reply to the unlearned questions by folks like me...great interview.

      twitter = @mactwisted

      I am convinced that these "members" are shills that are intentionally here simply to stir up drama and generate hits and posts to mmi. Hits = ad revenue, and its possible that while the owners of this site are losing their asses on no Cydia revenue, while nobody has a jailbroken phone... increasing ad revenue is all they can do! How do you do that? Increase hit an post stats!!

      How else can it be explained??? ALL these jagoffs have....
      1. Joined within the last few weeks
      2. Usually have fewer than a dozen posts that are ALL slanderous and insulting moronic babble
      3. Mods only sometimes edit them, and ONLY the profanity
      4. Not ONE of them has had a post deleted or been banned!!!

      Membership to this site is not a right, its a privilege... So how else can you explain the continued existence of these counter-productive annoyance "members" on mmi??
      Lol.

      Seems like Spirit jailbreak has been cancelled according to Wikipedia - iOS jailbreaking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Can anyone confirm!

      His twitter didn't say anything so I'm guessing fake.

      i really hope your prophecy comes true! but what i read on the faecebook cydia page from a couple of hours ago makes me think its still days away...

      "So, yesterday, while having a meeting at the MakeItWork offices (more details on why tomorrow ;P), I got roped into doing a little demo of Cydia running on my iPhone 4. The jailbreak isn't ready (there's no tool for it yet, and the result doesn't entirely work), but trust me: it exists, and when it is done and the kinks are worked out, it is going to be /awesome/."

      i hope to be proved wrong!
