  • 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!

      True but I doubt Apple would ever take him on.

      Well the 3G phones are nothing to worry about. This is related to new generation iPhone 3G[S] and the 3rd generation iPod Touch.

      I believe that Jobs' arrogance is too big to allow it.

      Why are you yelling at me.

      It's because you have a 3G. Newer 3GS' and iPod Touch 3Gs are tethered. So it's a pretty big deal.

      It won't be. You will not see a new unlock til iPhone 4 in July. This will only be released as part of an iPad jailbreak. There will be a race between geohot and chronic dev to jailbreak the iPad first. Neither one will wait for the iPad 3G to release. Also these exploits are in iboot not bootrom so Apple can kill it with another firmware update.

      Haha, wonder who will win

      Maybe they should work together and release at the exact same time :P

      I don't think you understand, this is a jailbreak exploit, there is no mention of a baseband unlock.
