    Default GeoHot Is Back! One Exploit To Rule them All! pwned4life


    Before you get excited, this is a news piece, not a notice of release. Patience is a virtue.

    It's been clear these days in jailbreaking land, as far as any new "ra1n" goes. However, that doesn't mean there is nothing going on. In fact, it's the complete opposite. Geohot has been rather quiet on Twitter these days, keeping to himself, however, behind the scenes, GeoHot has been hard at work creating, what I am starting to think, will be the next, best, jailbreaking tool.

    George Hotz (Geohot) has been in France recently, taking part in the Nuit Du Hack conference. Started in 2003 by Hackerz Voice team, and inspired by world famous DEF CON, “Nuit du Hack” is one of the oldest French underground hacking conference to date.

    During one of the "talks" held during the confernce, George gave a presentation in which he discussed the discovery of his newest bootrom exploit - which by the sounds of it, can eventually jailbreak or "pwn" every iPhone and iPod Touch available, including the iPhone 4. In fact, it sounds like he has something that could be used again and again for any new iPhone devices that are released in the future. The name he has given this project is "pwned4life"

    Keep your eyes peeled. I suspect we may see this tool surface in the next few days or weeks.

    Below is an 8 minute clip filmed during GeoHot's presentation:

    Geohot is still king of the JB scene

    I remember he was the first to break the "latest" 3GS while the Dev Team was playing the wait game

    I've always said that Geohot is one of the top dogs on the jailbreaking scene, without his blacksn0w I would have never had an unlock on the 3GS in the first place and I would have been stuck with the 3G for much longer.

    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.
