    He would be better of charging for an untethered jail break, then getting the hopes of the community up with false pretensions. By that I mean, he likes to say continuously that jailbreaks and unlocks shouldn't cost anyone anything, and he likes to constantly remind us how he refused money to find an unlock, but then this stunt just puts those efforts and words into a useless and meaningless light.

    No he doesn't want your money, but he wants you to do the leg work for him so he can get a free 40 grand and national level fame. That is a double standard my friend.

    [QUOTE=Fodd1337;5053898]Tethered is when you have to connect your iDevice to a computer to Jailbreak (The Dev Team's Pwnage Tool is tethered), Untethered is a jailbreak over wi-fi. Someone correct me if I am wrong.[/QUOTE

    Tethered means you need to re-jailbreak your device again if you ever turn it off/reboot it.

    ^Nice work restating what I already said :/
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Ok, and your point being? I read "his" post, and made a comment. I didn't get to yours, nor do I care if you wrote something similar, since I was remarking on his beautiful irony-laden foot-in-mouth comment. Welcome to the world of a Forum. This is where people comment on one another, and on the ever-changing topics. You may experience similar posts in the future, so bulk-up Buckeroo and enjoy the ride. *sigh*

    The percentage of people who donate, despite everyone saying they will, is more like 0.1% than 50%
    If 50% of the people who use BlackRa1n actually donated George would be a rich man.

    As for the people who say he only did this competition for the $40k - did any of you actually read his web page on the competition? His share of the prize would have been $8k - somewhat less than the $10k he turned down for the latest unlock.

    thats the problem no one ever reads everything in full they qwickly half read somthing and then start their moaning crap and all this loyality crap etc. Geo writes and creates all these complex scripts and programs him self for iphone community's benefit he is not obliged to release anything nor is he legaly contracted to do so. so therfore if geo wishes to realease a unthered jail break then he can if not then no hard done by.

    just remember if it wasnt for geohot you would not be using your iphone on 3.1 or 3.2 just now and also no unlock for all use idiots who say help i upgraded my phone by mistake

    Well that's funny. I am absolutely over 20. I am an app Dev as well. I just have a good sense of humor and think that this thread is total ******** just complaining about something we all (myself included) want for free. But under no situation is this something we are OWED.

    I HOPE he releases it. If not someone will eventually. I thought I couldn't live without jailbreak till my 3gs had to be replaced under warranty. I use it for work so tethered is not an option and not reliable IMO, though it would be fine for an IPT3.

    I feel like this whole thread is way out of hand.

    It's funny how all the Jail-Broken Critics can speak their mind, make slick remarks and slam a Guy who has not only helped in revolutionizing the way the iphone works but allow them to expand on the technology locked down by apple.

    My question for all who is pissed at GEOHOTZ!!!
    What if after jailbreaking your damn idevice the **** stopped working with means of repairing (BRICKED)?

    I'm sure GH didn't hold a gun to none of ya'll heads and say DOWNLOAD BlackRa1n. It's free (THAT MEANS..."use at your own risk." )and to each his/her own.

    I've never posted much in these forums because there will always be some numbMuck sitting infront of his/her PC or MAC surfing the net looking for FREE$hit and once they get it. . . .they'll be looking for more.

    BASHERS N SKEPTS ARE BASICALLY A DIFFERENT SPELLING FOR ANAL!
    Sometimes it's better to be silent. . .Than to always be saying sum dumb SHYT!
    So basically try keeping it SYMPLE!

Geohotz was jus a piece of **** like youall untill he unlocked the iPhone....the guy has talent no doubt and CAN make a freakin untethered JB so I believe he should go ahead and make It instead of being an ******* asking for the stupid balloons=money=double standards....I wouldn't mind paying for Untethered JB.
    Peace

    I'm trying to get you all guys "who's mad, upset, whatever..." on Geohot, but still really couldn't!
    whether it was him, the dev team, or anyone else, they are all putting all their own time and effort into something so very creative and publishing it for FREE to whoever might need it!!!
    got it guys? for freeeeeeeee......
    so if you're upset or mad, get over it and have a life, or try to be creative and keep it for yourself!

    that's sick :-/
