  • GeoHot Announces Untethered Jailbreak! Release Date Still Unknown


    I feel like it's groundhog day with this announcement. GeoHot who has been almost silent on the untethered jailbreaking issues, is indeed still in the game and has finally announced an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 2G, 3G, and we can only assume the iPad!

    The jailbreak is all software based, and is as simple to use as blackra1n. It is completely untethered, works on all current tethered models(ipt2, 3gs, ipt3), and will probably work on iPad too.
    While the groundhog may have poked his head out, he left no real indication of when the winter season may end. GeoHot has not announced a release date and as per usual, but I can only expect that this release will be made public when the time is appropriate, such as new firmware updates (if they don't break the exploit)

    As soon as this hits the public, we will be sure to let you know!

Also these exploits are in iboot not bootrom so Apple can kill it with another firmware update.
      Since when is the iBoot updated via firmware update? I thought the iBoot was h/w based

      On the iPhone: An Information Campaign

      have an unlock for 05.11.07. I will be releasing on 11/04/09, for $0.00

      First off, Jody Sanders, I am declining your $10,000. Why? Because you, and the rest of the iPhone unlock sites out there are scum. You make money selling freeware; that's not cool, and I am in no way going to legitimize it.
      Seriously, the people who really lose here are the customers. These sites are full of blatant lies, claiming to have unlocks for 05.11.07 People buy them, and are told the unlock is in development, and the release date is unknown. Imagine you bought a cup of coffee and were told it's in development? Recently, many of these sites sent out e-mails saying they made major breakthroughs and the unlock will be ready 11/04/09. Coincidence that that's the release date of blacksn0w?
      I'm not going to post all these scam sites here, as I don't want to give them the pagerank boost. Rather I'll give you a whitelist, two people make unlocks, me and the dev team. Every iPhone unlock site you see out there is selling our stuff, repackaged in some form or another. Same goes for jailbreaks, although ih8sn0w and chronicdev are legit. Notice what all the legit ones have in common? They are free.
      Now despite rumors of the ferocity of my legal team, they actually are pretty poor lawyers. And the scum who run these websites are the type who get off on legal battles. So we have to fight them in another way, and I'm asking for everyones help on this. Our weapon is information. Get the truth out, that all iPhone unlocks and jailbreaks are free, and if you are buying something, you aren't getting anything a simple google search couldn't get you, and are probably funding someones crack habit.
      This is the first time I have tried to make something simple for the end users, and it enrages me to see people selling it. Let's shut all these assholes down, and tell the iPhone owning world all they need is at blackra1n.com, including blacksn0w instructions on it's release date, 11/04/09(yes, will support hacktivation). You do your part, and I'll do mine making things as simple, reliable, and straightforward as possible.

      You have 4 days.

      The only way this will be released for 3.1.3 is if Apple doesn't release another firmware for the 3GS prior to the iPad jailbreak being ready. If they do release 3.2 for the 3GS, then you will simply update to it and then jailbreak

      Maybe they should work together and release at the exact same time :P
      lol. Well I have seen both and they both effectively jailbreak untethered for 3GS and ipt3g but we need to see which exploit will still exist on the iPad.

      If you bought yours with 3.1.3 on it then you have nothing to get offended at. I was talking about people who updated right away when the update came out.

      I think people should A) read a thread completely, and B) word their questions in a more detailed manner if they want to differentiate themselves from the idiots who updated.

      Hotz told Wired.com in a phone interview that he might release the hack when the iPad launches next week. But he said he would wait to see what the rest of the hacking community does first. He said he expects the Dev-Team, another group of iPhone hackers (that Hotz was formerly part of), to have figured out the same exploit.

      “We’ll see what the rest of the scene does,” Hotz said. “Maybe I’ll release it [during the iPad launch].”
      From a phone interview with him on Wired.

      I don't think there will be iPhone firmware 3.2.

      Yup - he did release BlackSn0w - what's your point?

      @SB - Geo has proved untethered, Chronic have not. The race has been won.

      I'm sure no one would release anything without considering the community.

      Credit can, and is, given to those who are due it without them having to release things prematurely.

      People that are clever enough to do this sort of thing are clever enough to listen to reason and make up their own mind .

      Luckily.

      Race has been won for an iPad jailbreak? That's interesting

      I happen to know gp is legit

      I am glad that cdev wasn't bullied by MN into releasing a video. Where is the dev team vid? I know they have the working exploits. Why not go ahead and produce the "good video". lol
