GeoHot Announces Untethered Jailbreak! Release Date Still Unknown
I feel like it's groundhog day with this announcement. GeoHot who has been almost silent on the untethered jailbreaking issues, is indeed still in the game and has finally announced an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 2G, 3G, and we can only assume the iPad!
The jailbreak is all software based, and is as simple to use as blackra1n. It is completely untethered, works on all current tethered models(ipt2, 3gs, ipt3), and will probably work on iPad too.
As soon as this hits the public, we will be sure to let you know!

of course it's for the new bootrom. They're the untethered ones that need blackra1n to kick em out of recovery whenever u reboot

Isn't this what Apple was waiting for? For the iPhone hackers to tip their hand before OS 4.0 is released. Any new exploit released now will be closed in the next major firmware release. Hopefully, GeoHot has other expolits in his back pocket."When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did...not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car." -- Unknown

the video didnt show much of anything. dont hold your breath. im sure it will be riddled with flaws per usual with georges' releases. how many times did he tweet "i am not working on an untethered jailbreak nor will i ever be. get over it."
thank god im not tethered.killall Terminal

^Notice that nothing's been released.
No additional details have been given.
Apple has almost no information to go on except that there is one

Also reports around are stating that the iPads are in ship mode, and waiting for April 3rd. So the first batch are a done deal almost to be able to use this if possible. Hopefully they won't fix it by the 3G release.
