  • 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.”

      All I know is that I bought an iPhone 4 after dumping Verizon (we're still friends, we're just on an indefinite break), and I've always wanted to jailbreak. I have 4.2.1 with no blobs, and I'll be happy with whatever untethered JB comes out as long as it works.

      EDIT: I'm gonna throw in my 2 cents for the more traditional 'acidra1n'.

      Geohot us a punk. I have know he was for a long time, he released the root key for the ps3 and followed up by saying if the 3 companies (Microsoft Sony nintendo ) want the next gen consoles to be secure they should contact him. That little punk wants to switch sides.

      You know what, instead of just trash talking Geohot, next time he releases a jailbreak you, and everyone who agrees with you, should not simply say that you're against him and his ways, you should show it. You should refuse to use his jailbreaks/exploits. That's what any person with any kind of integrity would do.

      And about him wanting to switch sides, seriously get your head out of your *** and see the world from a different view. When it comes down to it, Geohot is just a person like everyone else and if his dream job is to do the security on a console for one of the three biggest console makers (which would be a huge, huge thing for anyone), do you seriously want him to not do it because you want your precious little jailbreak? Please, get over yourself.

      Who cares what name he gives it. As long as it works better than Comex's & he has it released before him as well.
