    First off, the background music sucks.

    Second, from what I remember off the to of my head, it looked like that video had everything musclenerd said should be present in a *true* untethered JB video in his post on the iphone wikee.

    Guess (even though I am absolutely NOT a fan of this dude's jailbreaks) this means that once it's released, I can go back to testing random stuff on my phone without fear of bricking it and being forced to pay full price for a 32GB 3G[S] and not being able to jailbreak it. Plus, even if he doesn't share with the Dev team, they will figure it out soon enough, and then there will be a stable jailbreak, with no pop-ups begging for donations at the end (although if I had a tethered jailbreak right now, I would probably be willing to donate for this).

    I doubt it, I am pretty sure 4.0 is going to be a completely different security setup based on who they have hired for that department.

    I think he will release after the ipad is out.

    2 1/2 days to do it.... I wonder if that mean 2 1/2 eight hour days or 60 hours? Lol

    either way it's impressive

    I can't belive people who still have the balls to complain about his work. I've yet to have a single issue with blackra1n. I honestly think the problems are with certain users, not blackra1n

    iPad wifi is coming out next week. A month after that iPad 3G is coming out. 1 or 2 months after that is another iPhone.
    It'd be much smarter to wait.
    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

    ^ I wouldn't worry about geohot giving anything away too soon. Like you said, it's smarter to wait, and geohot seems like a fairly intelligent guy

    This is just an untethered jailbreak for user with the 5.11.07 baseband though, right? It still
    won't do anything for people with the 5.12 baseband. Or am I missing something?

    Well, he and the dev team both crashed 5.12 afaik, so I would expect an unlock for that along with a jailbreak.

    @neodude- I don't know what they've done with 5.12. I'm just saying the posts don't really say that this is anything more than an untethered jailbreak for devices that are currently jailbreakable, just tethered.

    So there is hope for us who have 3.1.3 with new BB?

    Removed for being inappropriate. This is your sixth and final warning -

    ^See, this is what I'm talking about. Everyone with the new baseband is thinking this is a jailbreak for them, and
    i'm thinking it isn't. Just an untethered jailbreak for people who can currently jailbreak. I hope I'm wrong, but that's what I got fromvwhat I read

    While the groundhog may have poked his head out, he left no real indication of when the winter season may end. GeoHot has not announced a release date and as per usual, but I can only expect that this release will be made public when the time is appropriate, such as new firmware updates (if they don't break the exploit)

    As soon as this hits the public, we will be sure to let you know!

    ^ some of the early 3gs iPhones with the older bootloader can be jailbroken untethered, this is old news. This is regarding phones that can currently only have a tethered jailbreak. I'm glad you and your friend have untethered jailbreaks but there are other people who do not. As for the last part of your post, WTF?
