  • 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.”

      How did he do anything other than hurt the community by releasing limera1n? There was already a jb coming out so he decides to steal it and make it worse

      Dude, the grammatical errors in this article are killing me! It's like a monkey with a typewriter.

      Try proof reading the thing at least once before you publish. What the heck is the copy editor doing all day?

      Exactly! People who defend his actions in that situation, are probably the same people who can't admit when they are wrong.

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't limera1n the only exploit for non-A4 MC models?

      He releases a jailbreak that benefits ALL iDevice users rather than just owners of newer devices, thus benefiting the entire community rather than just a few.

      The way he did it could certainly be viewed as immature, but the end result helped out the community much more than releasing a SHAtter based greenpois0n would have.

      That's what I thought. I was for releasing a jailbreak for all even though I have an A4 device. I thought I remembered people ****ing at Chronic for releasing a JB for A4's only.

      IF he releases something, it will probably be tethered and then he will post a video with an untethered version to make us all jealous but never release it LOL

      It was never over. And how did he steal the exploit I thought that was a secret?

      By the way, was "pwn'd for life" the limera1n exploit?

      They share their exploits with other Dev teams and then it spreads from there. Remember when a dutch Dev threatened to release it? How the hell did he get it? He doesn't even do jailbreaks!

      I believe he did use Comex's untethering exploit against the terms he and Comex had originally agreed upon. I forget the specific details.

      We already discussed that. "Pwned4Life" was GeoHot talking about PwnageTool. It had nothing to do with his exploit at all.

      Oh lol. I must have not been reading up that day.

      Then again though, he also said "…and limera1n is just something some guy made up in his basement." Right before he deleted his twitter.
