    FREE JAILBREAK AND UNLOCK ANY IPHONE!!

    GeoHot you are the s**t. I would bet anything that if any other 20 y/o finds this info, he/she would sell it and make tons of money

    TONS of typos and punctuation in your Craigslist posts. Maybe try editing it to look a little better?

    I respectfully disagree. I don't own a mac. I'm perfectly fine with paying a person for their TIME to use their mac to JB my phones using the Dev-Team's app.

    And to (cr)apple: I now have six jailbroken and unlocked iPhones no thanks to you. Go ahead and change base bands as much as you want. You won't stop me any longer, and with people like the Dev-Team and Geohot around you can't either!

    Maybe most of us individually can't donate 10K to him for all of his hard work/time, but we can do our part and donate a piece of it. This is definitely very deserving of a donation, I'm donating!

    Geohot will be rewarded in time for his genius! He's the man and all that use his work should donate as it will sum up to more than the $10,000. Come on guys donate as you would have paid if it wasnt free!!!

    I will definitely be sending a donation your way this week. I have also encouraged the people I know that have iphones to make a donation as well.

    In addition my friends, family and I have been speading the word of the Information Campaign.....In my area on Craigslist there are a lot of people advertising iphone unlocking and charging anywhere from $10-$50 for it and we all know that they are using one or both methods from the whitelist of people you mentioned in your blog post. I do not like the fact that some of them actually pass of the service as their own method and I have made my opinion known to them.

    Again, I thank you very much for all you have done.

    It's a matter of time guys, if I'm offering my time and support, I deserve to get paid. In turn, I DO donate to geohot, and give credit for it. As I said, if people don't want to take the time to learn, they can take it to me, or if they want to learn, they can take it to me, either way, I'm taking my time for it. It would be ridiculous to post on craigslist "Come to my place and I'll do it free!" because it takes effort, whether or not the software is free.

    This guy's got it right:

    Ultimately, if you can do it, and are willing, then don't pay someone. If you can't be bothered with it, and have some money laying around, pay someone, just how the world works.

    I think Geo should take the money. Not to be greedy, but just to simply make Sanders pay for something for a change.

    That is crazy. I've done 2 for friends and would never charge anyone. If I had time I'd post free jailbreakes but who knows if they would turn around and sell the jailbroken iphone to make money for themselves. Perhaps a link to instructions to do it on your own on Craigslist would keep some of these people from supporting their "crack habit".

    [QUOTE=Melech518;5018075]Geohot has asked us all to spread the word regarding this unlock and the fact that it is a FREE program. Myself and many others have been spreading the word as much as we can. Tweet, update Facebook statuses, and post on criagslist to help spread the word so people no longer get ripped off by those charging money for unlocks

    If I were GeoHot, I would sell the unlock to Sanders under the condition that I could release a statement exactly like the one that was actually released, which would say I didn't take the money.

    I'm sorry to ask this question I just wanna clarify this I just got an iphone 3g with FW 3.1(7C144) modem fw 05.11.07 now my question is if update my iphone on 3.1.2 will my modem fw would stay the same and able to unlock my phone whenever geohot release his unlocker on the 4th of this month. The reason for this question is i wanna update my iphone to 3.1.2 and use blackra1n to jailbreak my phone.

    By the way if I update to 3.1.2 will it activate my iphone using blackra1n coz I'm gonna use it on T-mobile.

    PS will definitely donate to geohot can't wait on D DAY!

    Thanks
