    Oh my, let the conspiracy theories begin. Next you'll be claiming man never landed on the moon.....

    @ EFFENPIG!.....Not even...What? The video doesn't lie. Say what you want but there is no reason for the lighting to suddenly distort for no reason what so ever. (Right at the point where the jailbreak flashes, CLAIMING to override the new boot.) That's a key sign of video altering. As much as I want to believe this I can't fully believe it....


    FOR THOSE WHO DON'T BELIEVE ME
    CHECK LIGHT TO THE LEFT OF THE VIDEO ON THE DESK AT 37SEC....IT GETS SMALLER RIGHT AT THE MOMENT THE BOOT FLASHES....YOU BE THE JUDGE.

    There's a very good reason for the light to "distort" at the exact moment the screen flashes. The auto iris of the camera reacts to the increase light from the flash
    of the screen and
    closes the iris a little bit, which causes the light to "change shape". If you look again you will see the light reflection just gets slightly smaller, which is consistent with the auto iris reacting to a
    bright light source.

    @ EFFENPIG.....I can sort of see how that could be possible. Im a skeptic. And Im aware of what people can do with a camera. So to me that looked very fishy. But im open for enlightenment.

    I'm just telling you what my conclusion was after watching it several times, obviousley you're welcome to your own conclusion

    but just for the sake of argument, let's say it's fake. What is his motive? What does he stand to gain?

    He said he wasn't going to work on an untethered jailbreak, so no one was expecting one from him. So the idea that he is in some kind of race to beat greenpoison doesn't make sense.

    Why would he risk his rep by putting out a fake video?

    I just don't think he would do it

    I saw the flash the first time I saw the video. But that doesn't show enough to suggest video editing. I am glad that you brought up another suspicion though. Cuz I would like to see a little more proof in the puddin'.

    I don't think anyone who knows young Mr. Hotz seriously doubts this video.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Flash must be pretty bright. I mean were not talking about a digital camera. Or he has a lame webcam. Effenpig asked why would he fake something like this....Ego perhaps. I mean he is playing Kanye's track..

    And Kanye has a pretty big ego lol.

    Who knows. Despite all my ranting, I want the $h!t to be as real as the device itself..

    Actually, the qick reaction of the auto iris would be indicative of a quality camera. If it was a low end cam, or "lame" as you put it, the image would have just washed out briefly when the screen flashed.

    I think the reason the light did that was because of the camera and when the ipod rebooted it gave off that flash which may have affected the camera also. I dont think it was because he cut the video and then added in another part to make it look like its unteathered.

    ^ That's just what Effenpig said.
    No one seriously doubts that this video is real.

    I hope the video is real. I'm pretty anxious to JB my phone this weekend if it gets released when the iPad does. Not interested in the unlock since I'm on ATT.

    From MN Twitter:


    Monday fun: this guy H0t b33f d3v team technically met all rules of A good jailbreak video [iPhone Dev Team] for untethered JB. Still fake. Can you pick out how?

    I just checked out hot b33f's page and a lot of viewers are saying it's fake cause there are no words scrolling through the voice app. And if that's the reason where are the words scrolling through geohot's video? I just found that interesting.

  15. #195
    The way Voice Control closed it was like a video. Its supposed to fade to the top and bottom, not into the background like in the video.

    And I'm talking bout the hot b33f vid.

  16. #196
    ^ very true I just watched both videos and tried mine several times and it didn't backout like mr hot beefs. Good find!
