    Default GeoHot Says GoodBye To The Community


    Three days ago we discussed GeoHot's "Meh" post regarding the iPhone 4 and Jailbreaking, and today we get a slight update to his announcement. In the slew of events and discussions over the last few weeks, George has decided to withdrawal from the Jailbreaking scene, tired and exhausted from the incessant demands for releases and abuse from the jailbreaking community. It had it ups and it's downs, and it has now come to an end for Mr. Hotz, as least here in the interweb.

    The tweet above was only an hour or so ago, so it it's official. There will be no more updates from GeoHot on jailbreaking. Both his blog and twitter have now been closed to the public.

    Soon after the "Meh" post, he posted an update to his blog stating the following, which was soon followed by the tweet above;

    Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I wonít say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(Iíve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place itís in now). I didnít fully realize most of the current scene donít care unless they are getting something. Now I do. Itís late tonight, Iíll think about what to do about this in the morning.

    The real reason behind no release isnít technical. Itís just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.
    Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake
    However, this isn't the end of the world folks. There is still a huge community of iPhone hackers and developers working hard such as the Dev-Team. Even George has tweeted some advice on who to follow for jailbreaking updates:

    Please follow my good friend @mikecohenn for all future jailbreak updates
    Goodbye GeoHot. Thanks for all your hard work! You've made a mark in iPhone history.


    For those of you interested, most of the Dev-Team can be followed on twitter.

    he was a good guy. but if he has a jailbreak he should just release it. he's not gonna update it so when he releases we also get 4.0.1 which won't be that big cuz we all know apple lied about the formula being wrong. just my opinion

    If I were him, I would be pretty sick and tired of endless emails asking for a release when I'm already working my *** off.

    sadly, I completely understand

    that's the problem with the internet, too many trolls and impatient people everywhere who don't appreciate the amount of work and time it takes to build a jailbreak and unlock for iOS.

    Thanks to geohot for all he's done and contributing towards the jailbreak scene, he will definitely be missed. Hopefully @musclenerd and @comex will continue with their efforts

    GeoHot is a genius. Being such a young guy, his mind is very advanced. I wish when I was a teenager, I was caught up in the hacking business.

    Well with 1 great warrior down in the jailbreak community, we still remain strong with MuscleNerd, Comex, and Planet-Being. Let's learn from this experience and support our current iPhone hackers. Of course, we're always going to have the "gimme gimme gimme", but as for us that are deeply into modding our idevices, let's be a bit more appreciative.

    Btw: I'm in the process of learning a computer language, Mabe one day I'll be joining the Dev Team
