    Haha excellent point! I did not consider that! But how can other people charge for a jailbreak tool then since that's infringing on apple's code too? If they don't charge for it Apple can't stop them, but what about those who do charge?

    [QUOTE=Conas;5028396]I say Geo should fix it for free, but he should rig it so that only jailbroken phones can reap the benefits of the 'patch'. Then we could go to the Apple forums and brag that our jailbroken phones work and their stock phones don't. Muwhaha ;-)

    That would be hilarious, i think that would be great

    To all those who say it would be awesome if he worked for Apple... good for him but bad for us. Everything he does now would be an extreme contract breech.

    wow, geohot is kinda an egotistical jerk... i dont know why you people like him when its the dev team's work that we should trust and rely on since they actually test a product before releasing it... I understand ill get flamed by half of you for this but i have been an iphone jailbreaker and unlocker form the start and really respect the work the dev team does and wish that geohot would work with them instead of putting his face all over his buggy jailbreak software begging us for donations....

    sadly since he doesn't have a bachelors degree in engineering im pretty sure apple would deny his application although if they opened up some of their secrets to him, he could single-handily bring them to their knees in two days

    If he works for Apple, say good bye to his jailbreak/unlock solutions... besides, I'm sure he makes more than 10k with donations... do you have any idea how many thousands of ppl use his software and donate?? I guess we will neer know, but good for him so he keeps coming with solutions

    It would be bad if apple made him in their team, geo has got the skillz to be able to stop jailbreaks forever, and maybe even mess up people that have jailbroken already to force them on the offical firmware. that is of course if they payed him enough.

    Thank YOU! Finally someone said this. Definately don't want his ego on my iPhone...I will use his hack only cause I have too, and I'd thank him, but I really am tired of everyone and their ego pumps inflating his already oversized head.

    Oversized? How so?

    The guy solved jailbreaking/unlocking problems that nobody else in the world could solve (at those respective points in time). Hell, he rivals the entire devs-team combined. He may be a little flamboyant/narcissistic about it all but I do believe he's earned that right. Hell, Jody's $10,000 didn't even dissuade his "oversized head"!

    Your dumb too, he does not beg for donations. He said if you want to donate here is the button. He does not demand or make you pay for it so whatever, do you have an unlock or jailbreak code that you wrote? Do you spend HOURS, DAYS, AND WEEKS devoted to iphone hacking? STFU!! Idiot.

    I do appreciate what Geohot does. The guy is brilliant and contributes a lot to the jailbreak community. However, I do prefer the dev team method. They do seem to come out with the most stable jailbreak/unlock solutions.

    I think all parties involved all have an ego. One ego to sell you an item that you can never truly own and another ego that says "I can hack it for free." By the way, 10.6.2 update is available. Why aren't we discussing that? This geohot tweet was a few days ago.
