  • 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.”

      No, he'll release the day before the Dev Team.

      Could be the name for a PS3 hacking tool...
      I thought GeoHot declared he left the iDevice Jailbreaking Scene? Could be mistaken though.

      it would be best if it's untethered . . . it should be . . .

      This is silly. Nothing new will come from Geohot for a long time to come. He's given us limera1n, he has no reason to come back until the i5 is released.

      Hmmmm, this is only helpful if it comes out soon. But from what I'm reading it doesn't sound like it.

      So where is redsn0w? And will said sn0w untether non-A4 devices (3GS)?

      I still think GeoHot is the man.....although he's losing his luster with all these colored ra1n names. Dude spends all his time hacking phones so I guess he can't come up with a clever name for the hacks lol

      Good God. You people are so freaking ungrateful..what've you given Geohot? He's doing this as a service to all of us.
      Thank you MMI for the news, it's interesting in my opinion.

      Purplera1n and blackra1n were untethered for the 3rd gen devices.

      But yes, he will probably make it untethered. If he waste his time making a tethered, he will just burn his usable exploit.

      Old news and yet MMI writers are still late to report once again.

      He's as far from quit as possible. He comes out of retirement and steals a exploit and screws over the dev team as loud and arrogant as possible
