    I used every one of his jailbreaks, they were the fastest and easiest for me.

    My four year old neice doesn't cry and ***** as much as 85% of this forum. Geo spent a lot of his free time helping people out, and now that he isn't delivering, it's flame time? It's just a jailbreak...and it's FREE.
    Is my girlfriend the only one that gets mad at me because I spend too much time with my iPhone?

    Thank god and good riddance if you didn't notice comex addressed the same situation in a much more adult and appropriate manner instead of whining like a school girl that he hates when people tweet him he said he appreciated the mentions but it's all about the work and as long as its fun he is continuing like a grown up see ya later geohotz and your ps3 hack is about 2 year out of date now time to let the pros take over that too

    Ah Geo.. you bring back memories.. I used you blackra1n to jailbreak my first ipod touch 2nd gen.. It worked flawlessly .. I am sorry about how other people treated you. Well it was a damn good run for you. Inspired many people that there is always a way IN.

    I imagine some of what he learned is how obnoxious people on the internet can be.
    of course, his attitude didn't help him with that much. He inadvertently brought much of that upon himself, sadly.
    But he's young, and smart, so he'll figure it out.
    Thanks for all your work and contributions man!

    I still just think the guy is an attention whore, but to respond specifically to his comments:

    I'm a pretty tech savvy guy but like a lot of other people, this jailbreaking stuff is over our heads, so from that prospective I can only care when it benefits me, because saying you did some low level hack that enables you to bypass the flux capacitor means nothing to me. To me that's a hell of a compliment. I'm just a sheep that wants his iPhone to do cooler things than it was designed to do, or on networks it wasn't designed to do them on, and if you're capable of doing that then you're probably pretty ******* awesome, but at the same time you shouldn't tease **** you don't plan to release.

    But whatever. Meh right back at you.

If you don't want the constant harrasment, then don't post that ****! That being said, I'm sure I would probably be something of an *** too if I was continuously harassed about jailbreaking the iphone.
    Spot on... always tweeting and posting about how easy it is, but then ******* when the community asks him to release.

    Seems to be a young, self absorbed narcissist to me. Only my humble online opinion though as I've never met the guy, but I do have the utmost respect for his abilities. Just wish he was more willing to share his gifts w/out all the whining.

    Seriously though,he indeed leave his mark,and yes many "trolls" as some people call them are annoying,but it comes with the skill he has.Most of us are adult enough to ignore,and use common sense.

    I realized the frustration but let's have a little empathy GeoHot. People are naturally impatient. That's like a 15 y/o kid getting the newest basest car they've always wanted and just waiting til he can legally drive it. Itwould suck. No offense but GeoHots just acting like a child and being a little irrational. We all know you're a genius and a prodigy...you're not the only person in the community getting haggled for a release. Good luck brother...I'm sure you will be around.

    Lol Geohot is cool but not releasing the jailbreak before he leaves if he has it is pretty a jerk move.

    Farewell, man.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
