  • 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'll prolly get some mod jumping down my throat or some fanboy saying, "hey man, don't talk sh** about geohot dude! he's a genius and we love him and i'll let him sit on my face any day of the week."

      well, answer me this...

      considering he turned downed a substantial sum of money a while back for one of his jailbreaks, i would say he's not doing this for fortune. but more likely for fame/notoriety...

      but when the dude gets exactly that, and maybe not in the form he wishes, he ******* like a little brat, who is "annoyed"

      really? like serious?

      then why post up this bullsh**? and throw it in everybody's faces? why brag about it? like the dude isn't smart enough to figure out EXACTLY what is going to happen!?

      give me a break! LAME!

      if the boy is getting a million redundant questions, then he fu**ing deserves it. the end.

      Um has anyone considered that all this hoopla may be exactly what george wants? He clearly enjoys attention, this could just be his way of getting his ego stroked. It's dumb and childish, but since the guy is clearly a bit of a putz, I wouldn't be even slightly surprised if he's sitting back in his mom's basement right now, hot pocket in one hand and mountain dew in the other, gleefully taking all this in right now.

      I wish he'd go away and become the lonely, angry man he's destined to be; completely forgotten in the bowels of some giant corporation that pays him a tiny salary to do something no one takes any particular notice of.

      The age of king george is over.

      He made a nice lunch- but now it's time for dinner.

      I respect the guy, and what he's done. But seriously, he expects to post something like this and then not have people nag him on it? Then don't post it, enjoy your phone.

      As said many times, the people that do this stuff, don't owe it to anyone. But if your going to dangle it in front of everyone's faces and say look what I did and you can't have it, then expect the backlash. If a great uproar is not what he's looking for, then while he may have a lot of computer smarts, he might need more social interaction.

      And I am sure you would be one of the first people to jb using his code. "we have others". So I take it you are one of the 1% that actually donates? Good. But using "we" is possessive and I can tell us that prob over 90% of the complainers on this site will act like they paid for the app when it's released. Mark my words. Look at the posts... The will be like "HELP". My device this and my tmobile reception that and tube won't this.... I demand a fix now".

      It's rediculas.

      I'm not so sure how good of an analogy that cancer comment was. Cmon are u really gonna make that joke. Lol. I love a good laugh. But a freaking jailbroken iPhone does not equate to cancerous tumor In Remission. Sorry but that was not witty nor did it deserve a thank u.
      Also keep those kinds of comments coming to keep this thread interesting. 

      1%? It is far, far less than that.

      makes me wonder how people like you can overlook how rude and childish somebody can be, as long as they can provide you with your precious jailbreak..

      and using some lame blanketed statement like all he gets is "hate" doesn't help your cause either

      it's called a donation for a reason... but then people like you love to shove that into othe people's faces, because you gave your lunch money to geohot one time...

      (wait for him to brag about how much he donated)

      if he wanted or needed the money to continue, then charge a small fee. i'm sure nobody here would ***** about that and would easily pay.

      you can't call it a donation and then complain when people choose not too. it's idiotic...

      14 year olds and newbie *****ing about everything...

      What did you guys do to contribute to jailbreaking? Nothing. So, quit *****ing!
