  • 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.

Like hey, wasn't u talking crap awhile ago??
      Really? What will that prove other than you have waaay too much free time? And it still won't change the fact that he acted foolishly.

      Should everyone not flee from the wrath to come, what's the quickest way off of your call out list? I can hardly sleep.

      That would prove that he isn't the only selfish person in the world....time in my hands? Of course not , but it wouldn't be hard to do such a thing since everybody talks trash would be the same ones u would find on his blogs and stand out....like you....

      How can u call someone who doesn't work for you , nor owes u anything foolish at that...

      Are you sniffing glue, man?

      The comment was made with regard to how he handled himself.

      He handled himself in a manner where he was constantly annoyed by the ignorance of people and lost motivation to continue to deliver products to a generation of people starving for piracy...which only concern themselves for supply...whoever has it...and if u don't they bash u..not understanding what u have supplied before. Behaviour is completely justifiable. Especially since his motives weren't about wealth but a hobby

      [quote=paganizonda83;5338296]Here is the entire post in question.



      When do you give a gift with the expectations of receiving something in return? (Unless you're giving it to a hot girl, but that's for another discussion lol)

      Typically for charitable purposes and/or to benefit a cause./QUOTE]

      If the claim is that you were donating to the jailbreak cause, then you were donating to a cause that was never announced to be in the works to begin with. Why would someone make a donation on the assumption that the money will be applied to a specific cause or purpose at a later date? Because Geohot never said he was going to work on a release for jailbreaking the iPhone 4, one can deduce that your donation was of the charitable type and therefor you are not entitled to anything in return for it.



      "Who IS the moron now" would be the correct wordage.



      As I said, I am four years sober.



      I believe I have fulfilled your instruction of addressing the post in its entirety.
      A donation is a gift given by physical or legal persons, typically for charitable purposes and/or to benefit a cause.

      As I said you need to quote all of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      A lot more than 4 years for me as I never needed that crutch!

      So how does that extended definition support your argument anyways?

      Good to hear you've never had a drink. Seriously.

      The donation's he took was for his work in jailbreaking software which was a cause!

      When he decided to not give out the jailbreak he bragged on so much he should have then quit taking donations and told everybody no more donations!

      I bet he is still taking donations!

      As far as the never had a drink, yes I have had a drink before and still do ever once in a while, I just never needed to use it in excess to hide from reality! Seriously!

      Same thing! You are given it for something in return in the Future, whether in an hour or two or longer!

      He never asked for donations for any upcoming projects. The blackra1n program even said "If this was the fastest and easiest jailbreak you've ever used then please donate via paypal" or something along those lines. Instead, he only ever mentioned donations for work he had already done for the community. A great example of this that blackra1n.com has a paypal donations button on it yet limera1n.com which has never been released does not have any donations information on it.

      George never once stated that he was working on a releasable jailbreak for the iPhone 4, let alone sought out donations for such a jailbreak. Just because people donated to him in hopes of him releasing a future jailbreak does not make him responsible for "refunding" those donations.

      I'm done discussing the drinking part here. If you want to continue that you are more than welcome to pm me.

      This is an old thread but I would like to comment on all the selfish idiots on this thread.

      1, Geohotz does NOT have to release anything. He is doing this for free and taking his own time to make other people happy. So to all who are making sniveling comments (rmathew_99 and a few others) get off this forum. He doesn't owe you a damn thing.

      2, Has it ever occured to anyone that apple IS stepping up to the plate and making it harder to jailbreak iDevices? This isn't jailbreakme.com days anymore where it was just a simple website and a simple tap. We're going into deep stuff.



      You bunch of grateful tools, if i were a dev i wouldn't release ANYTHING to you either!

      Start remembering why you have that shiney cydia icon on your homescreen and WHY you have custom themes on your devices! If it weren't for Geohot and the other devs you wouldn't have it!



      and on a final note..YES LEAVE HIM ALONE!!! HE IS WORKING ON JAILBREAKS AND DOESN'T HAVE TIME TO ANSWER THE SAME GOD FORSAKEN QUESTION 10000x!
