  • 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!

      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
      LOL. Well the Dev Team didn't claim they had one..
      GP's legit. No argument there (at least from me )

      So what gives them the right to call out others? I get sick and tired of the way MN treats others who are trying to help the community. He has a right to call out the piece of trash fake dev teams but wtf is up with his b.s. with iH8sn0w and chronic dev?

      Well I'm not defending them. Just stating the truth..
      Musclenerd just doesn't like posixninja
      As for ih8sn0w, I honestly don't know what was up with that. At least I know the story with PN.

      You don't have to try and sort out the mess iH8 has caused. Personally I don't like it.

      Again, from a personal point of view I have no problem with Chronic, I don't believe MN has either, thete are plenty of fake teams that MN has rightly called out - some of which are trojans and very bad. As far as I know all MN has done is explain how you can prove your claims - anyone who is genuine can do this as Geohot has proved!

      I just don't agree with the way he acts towards those two. There are plenty of people who do deserve it, just not them.

      I know there were some issues with snowbreeze but there are many people who are grateful for what the iH8sn0w has done. I think there are many people who could help out and expand our community but this disrespect among everyone is tiresome. And I am not saying it all comes from MN.

      Musclenerd is one of the nicest and most respectable people in the iPhone scene most of the time, but when it comes to certain people, MN has a very short fuse.
      ih8sn0w can be annoying as hell (and is most of the time ) but he doesn't mean any harm (and if you find something specifically wrong w/his sw & tell him, he'll try to fix it as he has multiple times in response to me).
      Posixninja.. is posixninja. He doesn't deserve to be attacked like this (as MN sometimes does). He works way too hard for the scene and will never do anything to hurt the community (though he too has a very short fuse.)

      I think IH8 does- he has caused lots of problems.
      Can you give me examples of where he has acted in an improper manner too Chronic? Asking for proof is not, IMHO, improper nor is asking for proof of claims.

      It's all so Soap Opera-ish to me, most of it just makes me giggle ((or feel bad for them))

      blkcadi, that's what I thought too, but once you get to know these people better, it's different..

      Examples of where MN has not just asked for proof of unsubstantiated claims?

      It is about cred when people are posting videos for proof. And tweeting hashs and using pastie.com for proof. If its not about cred, why must there be proof?
