  • 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!

      Personally I don't know ANYTHING about hacking...but I really don't know what took him/them so long...

      The s4P-something guys were a total fake...Chronic-Dev and their greenpois0n were nothing but fakes too...and GeoHot kept saying he wasn't working on any untethered jailbreak...at least it's closer now...I really can't wait!!

      Muscle Nerd!!! Whats up! I know this video was about George's unlock, but if I remember correctly you were the first one to find a crash. We all thank you for your continual hard work and look forward to the progress you guys have made. Many thanks for giving the community easier access to our phones. You my friend are a rock star.

      Hi Nvrkot....um first, thanks

      This video wasn't really about an unlock (a cellphone unlock), but that falls in same category as what I mentioned above with the jailbreak Neither the jailbreak nor the unlock will be used right now on 3.1.3 by anyone....they're best used for a real update (which 3.1.3 isn't).

      Don't worry, geohot knows that 3.1.3 was bait too

      To those of you who have been ungrateful for the hard work the Dev's put into making & maintaining the possibility of jailbreaking, unlocking (the true potential of our phones), etc., maybe now you will truly show some appreciation... ESPECIALLY if you lost your jailbreak.

      The next big firmware release will most likely be iPhone OS 3.2 which is what the iPad is running. This will most likely be released within the same time frame as the iPad shipment. I don't think we'll have to wait very long for this jailbreak release.

      yes! i can live again without worrying about running my battery down and having to wait to get home to ring someone. FINALLY! but to be honest then i won't be able to try out my own experimental jailbreak... it's in the making but if it doesn't work, i'll scrap it
