  • GeoHot Jailbreaks iPhone 4, Says Shove Off


    GeoHot - or as his mother knows him, George Hotz - has jailbroken the iPhone 4, and tossed up an image on his blog today of the 4 running Cydia. He is also just plain annoyed with the masses of people constantly barraging with one single question "hey man when are you going to release a jailbreak I want the Cydia that give the apps that give me the total power I can donate $5 when is it released" Says GeoHot: "As far as a release goes, it probably won't happen from me."

    He dispels a couple rumors from the web as well - "limera1n is little more than a raindrop on a website; it was never mentioned by me previous to this post." and also "pwned4life is a complete invention of some blogger in a basement somewhere. When I said pwned for life, I was referring to the original iPhone, 3G, and Touch; which of course are, by the aptly named PwnageTool."

    There's a single sentence which seems to sum up GeoHot's annoyance with jailbreaking about now at the bottom of his post: "Again, please don't ask for release dates. Every person that does makes me want to release a little bit less." And not to disappoint Señor Hotz, the comments on the post are already littered with folks asking how to jailbreak various devices. I chatted with GeoHot this morning, and he basically rehashed the same annoyance he published this morning - which makes sense. I mean, give the guy a break - if he had a release or a release date, he'd publish it. Repeating the same question over and over to him (or comex, or planetbeing, or MuscleNerd, or any of these guys) isn't going to speed anything up. They're all working for you, so give the guys a break and wait patiently for a public tool - it IS coming, from whomever. C'est la vie... anyway, that's what we're for. Feel free to ask right here if the jailbreak is released.

    Nice to notice it seems the Cydia in the picture is already in high-res for the iPhone 4, although with some weird aliasing in the background. Looks like Cydia is ready for iPhone 4 when iPhone 4 is ready for Cydia.

      I think I'd have a similar attitude toward so many entitled, unappreciative jagoffs making rude comments.

      Totally insignificant. But if you think I rely on Mr Hotz JB you obviously don't know a lot about the Dev Team.

      it's one NFL fan saying to another, "well, if you think you can run faster, than how come you're not on the field!?" ...just because the other dude criticized the play... dumb... dumb... dumb...

      you mean the Dev team that provides tools for jailbreaking without including images of themselves that appear when the device is getting jailbroken? Yeah, I know a lot about them. they don't do it for the same reasons Geo does.

      truth is, you, like most of us rely on someone to jailbreak our ****. but you (like other senior members here) are acting like he's some kind of victim when he set himself up by boasting about it with pictures in the first place.

      I have no ego - but if you knew anything you would know that I work for the Dev Team as a moderator on their blog.

      You obviously have not got a clue who provides the tools you use and just like complaining.

      I have no need of Mr Hotz' tools, but that does not mean that I don't respect him.

      Of course he's gonna release the jailbreak, if in fact it's actually real.

      George needs us to live. He's nothing without us. He may throw his little tantrums to get attention, but he's not gonna walk away from the "fame" that releasing jailbreaks brings him.

      It's probably the only thing that gives his life meaning.

      It'll get released, trust me.

      If he doesn't want to hear people's opinions, he should keep things to himself. I said a couple of times, I don't think anyone should doubt he did this, or be-little his talents.

      My point from the start was a simple one. What type of reaction does anyone think he really expected? He was going to post he jailbroke the new phone and we'd hear crickets?

      No, its happened before and its happened again, he likes his names at the center of things. And that I have no issue with. He's got the talent, praise is well deserved. But don't treat people like they are beneath you and come out and say look what I did, but don't expect me to share. That's simply childish.

      If he seriously didn't want people to pester him, he'd simply do it and keep it for himself.

      If you want to post things on public forums, your going to get public opinions. End of story.

      One of the reasons I'm a mod is because I don't break confidences.

      What will get released? As Spirit will be released there is no reason for Mr Hotz to release his JB, why should he go to the effort of making a release when someone else already has?

      Respect what? Childish behavior? Are you serious? Wow...

      So what.. You've been here the longest, whoopie!!!! Want a gold star for that? It doesn't meant jack sh**.

      it's actually kinda pathetic to be making such frivolous claims on yourself on a topic that is not about you. Lmao...

      You were salivating at the chance to tell me about your dev team street cred, hahaha... Somehow you worked it in there...

      You mod a forum for free and you obsess with your big fish, small pond nonsense.... Get a life bro.

      Now back to the subject at hand. Geohot deserves all the dumb questions. I hope he get even more for bragging.

      That's funny half-postman. And who ever asked why one would release a jb f the other already had. U should read a bit more. Not all jb's use the same exploit. And not all jb's are created equal. Lol
