  • 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.

      This site has 152,000+ threads. It is not going to be reorganized for news items because they are published to other news feeds and moving it will cause link-back issues.

      has nothing to do with religion....and you think i care on how i spell things? does that make you feel smarter now that you've pointed that out?

      and how am i trolling? because i gave my opinion? funny on how you go against others and you're nabbed for "trolling". You gotta admit most people are leeches and only think for themselves. unless you're one of those people who are constantly banging down dev doors for a jailbreak.


      And for those of you who think im trolling...re-read the first posts before mine and tell me I'M trolling.

      I don't know what gave you the idea that any of the dev teams do not care about the community. The reason they hold stuff back is so that they are not wasted, so that it will benefit more people in the long run. They do this because they DO care. What they don't care about is a small group of people who constantly beg and complain for the tools now not thinking about how it will impact being able to jailbreak in the future.

      These arguments that keep popping up regarding this and other similar issues are pointless and need to stop NOW. Having a respectful debate about something is one thing. But you and others always seem to take it too far to the point of just being disrespectful and rude. If these pointless arguments do not stop infractions will be given out.

      Where the hell are you guys coming off that I said the dev teams do not care? I am stating that people need to leave the devs alone and let them work instead of banging down their door asking the same question. When a jailbreak is ready, it will be released...spamming them wont make things any faster.


      DRFP...I have not in anyway judged someone's personality based on a post, but hate to say it...sometimes posts can sort of tell someones character.

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

      THAT was pointed against to anyone who was calling Geohot selfish and sending hellfire down on him. So unless you're one of those people...DON'T TAKE ME DOWN!

      you guys jump to conclusions and miss the entire point of my post >_> try re-reading and put yourself in the dev's shoes.

      First off, you used god with the belief that it was it's own word rather than part of godforsaken. Tough to try and use something you don't even believe in.

      Secondly, atheism has almost nothing to do with religion. You're a poor atheist.

      Finally, that last post before your's WAS WRITTEN IN JULY! That is why you're a troll. Everyone has moved past it and yet you want to stir up controversy, well done.

      I wasn't talking to you in regard to that comment...

      I was however addressing you and others when it comes to these useless arguments. If you cannot keep it civil then you may want to move on.
