You are implying that the Devs should not sit on exploits at all and that they should release them as soon as humanly possible.

    If you're going to try and point this finger at Geohot then you had better point it at Comex and everyone else who sat on untethered jailbreaks for the new bootrom for so long.
    Thing is, that Geo pulled a stunt like that on the PS3 which I felt was uncalled for. Because he felt like proving a point and saying he finally "hacked" it. Sony being scared of Geo's past track record decided to not take any chances and removed Linux, hey if I was Sony I would've done the same after all. This basically screwed many legitimate users of OtherOS Linux. He never remedied the situation either, said he would release a custom firmware that was 'super' easy to install, even showed a video on how simple it was. But he never released it or ever twittered about it. That's what kind of burned his perfect record. What people were mad about is that it ruined a perfectly fine feature and he never again went back to fix the situation.

    Sometimes I feel he does it for the attention, wouldn't it be honestly better to stay shut about an 'exploit' that you found and catch everyone by surprise one day? Dev-Team did that with yellowsn0w. Dark_AleX did it numerous times on the PSP Scene. I feel Geohot talks too freely about this stuff now. Allowing the company to find a fix for it, then screw everyone of the certain path to freedom.

    Regardless, we all know Geo has talent, he's done crazily amazing things. I remember the first time I used blackra1n I was like wtf? Thats IT!?

    They didn't have to update and lose Other OS, they chose to.

    I really know very little about the ps3 hacking or the psp scene so I can't debate any of that.

    I really respect his work and effort in doing this, especially since he is also one of the people who doesn't do it for the money, but more so for the reward of punching into victory.

    Best of luck to him, many people are ungrateful on what he has achieved and think they deserve what he does. Dev-Team is another group that deserves these props, without these guys, oh man, where would we be.

    Now you guys don't get me wrong but I just hope Geohot doesn't do what he did on the PS3 Scene, and say "I did it" but never again write a following message to the 3.21 OS update. Linux was taken out of the PS3 thanks to that little 'show' of I did it. I am actually glad he never released it, although I think it's more so because Sony closed the proxy that allowed you to bypass the update in the first place.

    Regardless, props to him, if he does this, man, this guy is one badass sob. and I'll have to sink into getting the friggin' iPhone 4 if it does indeed happen.

    Remember LAST time he said that an exploit "couldn't really be patched?"

    RIP, OtherOS.

I mean the kid needs money to eat but if your gonna sell out don't tell every body a jb is on the way. That's just my personal opinion of what's going on.
    Great said..

    True, but it's a little sucky don't you think? I mean people that actually used Linux now had to decide whether they wanted that or online capabilities more. My decision was made really fast though.

    Btw, great avatar haha.

    Well said. I just miss my phantom 10GB partition that disappeared because of OtherOS. I still need to go back and make a full backup so I can restore and get that space back.

    anyone who thinks GeoHot has not earned money via donations is nuts. I would venture to say he has earned well over 100k in donations. what about Spirit, at least the same.... i personally gave each of them $20. if a measly 5000 people like me gave a similar donation.........

    My thoughts exactly! This kid is way too smart. If I were apple, I would make sure this kid is on the payroll.

    P.S. My iphone4 shipped! cant wait to get it!!!

    While I think it's cool that he found a new exploit and I appreciate it, I don't worship him or think he's some king. If he releases it, nice for the community. If he doesn't, someone else will.

    I do think he looks like he's one bad breakup away from going psycho.
