Thread: whats the hold up

  1. #1
    Default whats the hold up
    why is it taking geohot the supposed super iphone genious so long to jailbreak this firmware ? has apple finally won ? where is the dev team ? every firmware has been jailbroken quite quickly yet this version is taking forever ! if i knew how to actually write the code to jailbreak the phones i would release the jailbreak and relieve alot of headaces this is rediculous. my 3gs is fine its unlocked and jailbroken on 3.1.2 but my wifes is stuck on 3.1.3 no shsh on file and new 5.12 bootrom. it was manufactured at week 41 but that means nothing now that its updated. I guess apple finally won. i may be looking for a new phone cause this is rediculous.

    Geohot is not even working on the iphone jailbreak anymore. None are working on this firmware version, they are waiting for 3.2 or 4.0 to be released.

    its cause 3.1.3 is such a useless update they are saving it for a more major one like simtech said 3.2 or 4.0

    They don't want apple to be able to plug the hole they open so only expect new jailbreaks of major releases.

    Any idea on when Apple will release the 3.2 or 4.o? I had another unfortunate iPhone drowning (4rth one in 1 year) and I am stuck with 3.1.3 new boot rom. i am going to Apple and try to replace it with a refurbished one in the morning. I wonder what I can tell them to help facilitate my receiving one with 3.1.2?

    Getting a 3.1.2 can be like the lottery. Your chance is becoming very slim. Some people have been lucky though.

    The hold up is cuz the dev team and geohot wants to piss people off. Yes that's why they aren't doing anything. They're lazy bums.

    -.- Major firmware such as 4.0 will be released within a couple of months or so. That's when the Dev Team and Geo will go to work.

    Btw genius does not have an o in it. I wonder how many more posts like this will show up...

    I never played the lottery, but I guess I can start. I can only try. If not I guess I will use one of the water logged iPhones I have. One is still JB'd so I guess I am better off then some. I just need to stop murdering my iPhones. My husband is so awesome, but I am quite sure that I am meeting my quota for iPhone purchases for the year.

    I deeply appreciate the Dev Team and Geohot's work. I guess sarcasm doesn't pick up well thru nonverbal ways lol. Sorry about that. It just seems like so many of these posts are going up and I've seen waaaay too many people get pissed off about this just cuz they got on 3.1.3.

    Didn't mean to scare you lol

    You're wrong about each jailbreak coming quickly. I would venture to say that each jailbreak has taken longer as Apple has patched the exploits.

    What's the point in wasting time for 3.1.3. 3.2 will likely have the same basepand patch and it will make it easier for devteAm to hack it so just wait for a while and use you motorolas or Sony eriicsons for now
