  • Is Rubyra1n the Name of Geohot's Next Jailbreak?


    Sooner or later, George Hotz - the hacker known in our circles as Geohot - will release another jailbreak for iOS devices. While there's little else to report on Geohot's jailbreak front, there is growing talk about what it will be called. And it may very well be Geohot himself who indirectly spilled the beans.

    Eric Calouro, editor and CEO of Erictric Media, reported Wednesday evening that Rubyra1n may the name of Geohot's next release. Why the speculation? Well, it turns out that the domain "rubyra1n.com’ was registered with the same information found on the WHOIS page as Geohot’s other well-known domains. So could the name brought us the blackra1n and limera1n jailbreak methods be readying Rubyra1n? That's the buzz at the moment.

    The prospective arrival of "Rubyra1n" would have likely remained the most talked about news in our community today if not for the Twitter update earlier on Thursday heralding word that RedSn0w 0.9.7b4 will be released today. According to a member of the iPhone Dev Team: "Today’s beta4 will eliminate separate usbmuxd process (so many more Mac users can use it). After that, expand to Windows." This, as we know, is the 4th beta of the new “backup method,” something redsn0w has dubbed “Jailbreak Monte.”

      Seriously you people who criticise GeoHot are a bunch of illiterate tards. First of all, they make exploits for us without expecting anything in return. You use them like selfish b1tches and when you're done using them, you sh1t-talk about it. If all you trolls did even 1/10th of what GeoHot has done for the community, you would be feeling like an uptight bastard who thinks he can rule the world. If GeoHot starts charging a dollar or two for every download of his Jailbreak, he'd be a millionaire.

      Steals? The Dev-team actually thanked him for limera1n that saved SHAtter. L2getehfacts.

      I think it was funny how he was openly homosexual, but even the people that didn't know that called him it.

      Nice catch there, and I think it will be too.

      (I think any ra1n will be good as long as it's untethered like the other ra1n's)

      Forget the rain/snow names. Freezing rain is sleet so he should call it s1337. That' way you have 1337 but are still sticking with the precipitation theme.

      Try proof reading the thing at least once before you publish. What the heck is the copy editor doing all day?
      Bashing the writers is getting old. Do you really care that much that you have to try and put someone down...? So lame.

      Don't really care what its called as long as it does the job! Could have been a better name though..

      If you're going to be a staff writer for any website, then you should be held up to a fairly high standard in terms of grammar and spelling. This is the problem with online news, blogs, etc.; grammar and spelling have become completely bastardized forms of what they once were. Any whack job can start up a blog and claim to be a reporter or a writer, and not have to worry about any level of quality in their writing and the English language gradually deteriorates (It's now becoming "proper" to say "I'm doing good" rather than "I'm doing well"!!!).

      If a regular member of MMI writes an article in the "Member Written News" section of the forums, then I tend to overlook most of the common mistakes because they are not making any attempt at being semiprofessional writers (using the term, professional, very loosely). However, the moment someone signs on to be a staff writer somewhere, certain expectations are instantly set in place regarding the quality of their work.
