  • 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.

      What will the Difference be? If apple releases, 4.0.1 first? what ever, the jailbreak was or is will be no good by the time 4.0.2 rolls out, I don't get this guys, specially Geo, he thinks he is the coolest thing since ZeRoCool. Just released the thing and get it over with.......

      True douchebag.

      Musclenerd and comex is where my respect goes to. As well as the rest of the dev team.

      This kid is nothing but a little punk stoking his giant inflated ego.

      LOL, I know I have 0 doubt that its real and Geo was able to jailbreak it. He's got no reason to fake it, and I know he has the knowledge to do it.

      My point is just don't say how much you hate people asking about it, when that's obviously the farthest thing from the truth. If you don't plan to ever release it say nothing. Or if you do, say it'll be out when its ready.

      Thats a pretty **** move, this screams attention whore. "I have it and im NOT sharing" grow up. I guarantee you if he released it.. people would stop asking when its coming out.

      I have to agree with this. If the point was to deter Apple why not just post a blog that says "been trying to jailbreak this one for a while, Apple seems to have won". That would mislead them into thinking even GeoHot was unable to break and then they push out the new firmware and the JB is released. This smells a lot like what happened with the ps3 exploit that didnt end up going anywhere besides removing my option to install other OS

      I don't understand him he says that he is sick of people asking when a jailbreak is going to be released. Yet he goes and posts this pic showing he can jailbreak iPhone 4 which is going to get more people asking him when the jailbreak is going to be released now?

      he is not the only one who can jailbreak a iDevice lol, but he is the only one stupid enough to post a picture of it then state how he hates people asking him about it, this kid is a ******* tool, with a big ego. he isn't the only person capable of this, he probably wasn't the first to do this, the only thing geo has to gripe about is his own narcissism

      since day one the scene has been littered with people asking questions, weather you think they are stupid or not is irrelevant, because once you decide to put something out and state what you are working on you have to be aware that you will be dealing with it on your blog, in your email, in your stupid twitter, so either don't release anything and do it to yourself, or own up to what comes along with making a name for yourself in the scene

      dont be a hypocrite

      geohotz you aint the worlds greatest hacker, you aint the iDevice elitist pimp, your a whiny brat with an inflated ego

      the upcoming release from @comex will be untethered for all devices

      I didn't mean it like that. I'm just saying. It's GeoHot, he has no reason to fake it. He can jailbreak anything whenever he wants if he wants to put in the time.

      Let's face it. He cracked the PS3 after years of people trying...His reputation speaks for it's self.
