    While the guy has made some very awesome contributions, he has at times seemed to be a bit of an *** in my book. He posts tweets/videos/etc about how quickly he cracked the iphone, how easy it is to beat Apple, and how slow other hackers are with delivering jailbreaks, and then gets pissy when he is hounded for his easy jailbreak. 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.

    Over the coarse of the last couple of jailbreaks the community has become very aggressive about getting them. It's funny though that we don't see these emotional roller coasters from the Dev Team isn't it. They generally have the devoted support of the jailbreaking community. They popst pics/tweets/videos/etc without all of the side show crap, and hence, far less animosity from the community.

    I do appreciate his work, and expect to see him back before long though. I don't think he can go too long before he needs the attention again. My bet is that he will sit out this jailbreak, but come bouncing back for the next one.

    Can't say I didn't see something similar to this happening... Well I will honestly miss the level of quality and assurance from a release that I got, and I'm sure most of us got from Geohot. It's tragic that something so prized by so many could be taken for granted in so little of time... I know I hope to one day see his work available to a appreciative public again.

    One thing is certain is that people are getting to needy and they always want something for nothing. I remember when the first jailbreaking came out everyone was so excited to be able to jailbreak their devices and didn't care need more and as time wanted people have wanted more and more. I use to jailbreak my iphone 2g cause i lived in Australia and needed unlock but now i have no need for it that much because we have a iphone now. Wish you Geohot all the best in the future.

    The guy obviously enjoys the attention - why else all these "goodbye iPhone world" tweets? What's next, a one hour prime time special?

    Sounds suicidal!

    iOS4.0 must be too difficult for him.
