    Default Is Geohot Ready With Jailbreak Release?



    A very curious post on Twitter is leading some to believe that a jailbreak release is imminent from Geohot. If so, the move would come as quite a surprise given the great fanfare that recently surrounded Geohot's alleged and self-proclaimed "retirement" from the jailbreak community - a move that saw Geohot cancel his Twitter account, set his blog to private, and assign good friend Mike Cohenn as his proxy, noting that all future messages would come through Mike.

    Today, one such message from Mike was received and it has the jailbreak community on a tentative high alert. The message: What's a good time to make it ra1n? Naturally, one could be reading way too much into this particular tweet, but Cohenn's relationship with Geohot is solid and it stands to reason that the jailbreak master may have simply thrown everyone off his scent to toil in private for the last few days of the jailbreak release prep. Of course, this is entirely speculation, but if we are, as advised by Geohot, to follow Cohenn for the latest jailbreak update, then perhaps this tweet is actually both meaningful and newsworthy.

    Needless to say, time will only tell what (if anything) this curious message actually alludes to. But keep your eye on Geohot's proxy today... as the question of "What's a good time to make it ra1n?" could very well be answered by Geohot very, very soon.

    Geohot fans vs. Dev-team fans

    Let the bashing begin...all out of a twitter post which confirms absolutely nothing. Another rumor on Messany's checklist

    I'm under the impression that someone grabbed his twitter name and is pretending to be him

    Enough with the hype already, either make it ra1n or let the drought continue. I have nothing but respect for what he has accomplished in the past, but this **** measuring contest is getting old. Looks like he was just waiting for Comex to release his and sneak in ahead of him.

    Dont get me wrong, but its normal for people to show this type of emotion and ridicule against Geohot, I too donated in the past, to help him out, and the last thread I saw was him retiring, so if he is retireing, and then comes out with a jailbreak for the Iphone 4 , that would be great, but if this is just another, thread, just so he wants attention, I can bet that if he had any credibility , he will lose it all

    The post you quoted was pointing out that the twitter account @_GEOHOT is fake - it is nothing to do with Geohot and is just someone pretending to be him.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Too bad you didn't download "Handy Light" from itunes the other day. It secretly added tethering but disguised itself as a light app.
