  • 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.

      Asking for released dates, and asking, and asking again would drive most people crazy. Arguing with these idiots is also crazy.

      So how could we stop it! Realizing that MOST of the questions come from newbees who don't know how to read, or do a search and never interact until they screw up something ...... I've got a great idea.

      For certain posts, threads, or whatever .... add a MINIMUM requirement. Could be longevity, post count, moderator approval, anything. It wouldn't be perfect --- but it's a start and worth a try .

      JMHO

      And surely you are opinionated about people being opinionated- or you wouldn't have followed up each of my posts with posts of your own. I can tell it bothers you when people disagree with your thoughts on geohot (and probably everything else) but you have to understand that "don't share your thoughts" isn't a good way to deal with someone whose thoughts you disagree with.

      Just to clear things up: I realize I'm free to not read this thread or post. So you can (please) stop making that same useless point over and over again. Obviously I don't need to read this thread, that's a given. I'm here because I'm interested in the subject matter and I want to share my thoughts. I want to discuss this topic with people and see what others think. I don't demand that they agree with me, but neither do I recommend they simply not chime in if they disagree. It's called "discussion" and it's not really possible if everyone agrees with everyone else.

      So please, I've heard the "you don't NEED to read this thread" argument. Let it go. I don't need to be here, but I want to be here. I'm here to share my thoughts, learn about other people's thoughts and have a discussion. That can't happen until YOU accept other people's rights to have an opinion and stop trying to censor them, albeit politely.

      Bottom line: I'm here and until I'm banned (which I don't think is going to happen) I'm going to share my thoughts- whether you agree with them or not.

      So please, let it go and let's actually discuss geohot and not discuss why I'm discussing geohot. Okay?

      Yeah, let's silence the majority, for the sake of keeping ONE guy happy. That makes a lot of sense and it's very much in keeping with the spirit of the internet.

      Next we can post guards outside geohot's home, to make sure no one can knock on his door and ask for the jailbreak in person.

      Sorry, didn't know it was a joke.

      It actually sounds like something someone might genuinely suggest.

      Someone dumb, but still, someone.

      I fully understand Geohot, I'd get really annoyed as well. Especially when people 'demand' that you bring out a new release, or blame you because your release screwed up their phone. Idiots.

      I won't also deny that Geo has always put himself "up there". He's nowhere near as humble as the dev-team or the rest of the developers. At least IMO anyways. He seems to like showing off and get attention.

      Either way, still good news.. err.. in a way.

      You did.

      I can't believe the hatred of some people.

      While I disagree with Mr Hotz on his release times sometimes and his lack of support resulting in lots of people having problems (a very small percentage of a very large number is still a large number), he certainly does not deserve this - as I said in the other thread, who could blame him if he stops helping people all together?
