    Geohot's latest post on his blog about iPhone 4: 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

    While I respect this guy for all his contributions in the past, and I understand the reasons he has put in, there is still something about this whole story which makes me wonder if Apple has something to do with this. Maybe he was offered money?, or maybe he was threatened with criminal charges for continuing? well who knows. He showed off a untethered jailbreak for new iPhone and iPod touches back in March, followed by a jailbreak for iPad and iOS 4 Beta in April, but none of them ever saw light of day makes no sense to me.

    For those of you who donít know, George Hotz (Geohot) is the guy who first unlocked the original iPhone in 2007, followed by first jailbreak for iPhone 3GS, and then later he was the first one to provide all-in-one jailbreak / unlock solution for iPhone 3.1.2 firmware through his famous tool, named blackra1n and blacksn0w.

    So where does that leave us Ė the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (new bootrom) and iPod touch 3G users? Well, Comexís Spirit like jailbreak tool is now the only hope. It will probably be released once Apple rolls out the new iOS 4.0.1 / 4.1 firmware update for iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G.

    Then we would have closed a ton of other threads. Right now this is still a hot topic and items are still being discussed about him between the threads.

    I'm all for conspiracy theories; usually I'll be right there drinking the koolaid right beside ya. This though is just a bit too far fetched.

    I think George likes all this attention he is receiving; as a result, he closed his blogs/twitter so that people are more desperate - hint (fame growing).

    He's closed it because he's moved on.
    There is nothing for him to do in the iPhone 4 - the Dev Team / Commex have it covered.
    Will he be back if there is an update that the Dev Team don't deal with? I'm not sure he feels it's enough of a challenge and all the hate he is getting sure as heck isn't going to encourage him to come back!

    haha well if he doesnt want hate then he should give the info, like i said he likes the attentiona nd fame..
    any person in tright ind knows that if he doesnt want the hate then he would give the info...
    Theres no counter arguement to this one so no point in saying "oh well.. people need to donate; stop bugging him; stop spamming him.." Then tell him to do the right thing!

    I never cared for Geohot. I used blackra1n because it worked, but that's about it. He always seemed, to me, to be that arrogant type of person that knows he's smarter than you, and holds it above your head. Personally, I can't stand people like that. And as for him not wanting to participate because of all the people wanting and not contributing? That's to be expected of any growing community. I have absolutely no coding skills, nor have I made an attempt to learn. I don't contribute whatsoever, but at least I wait patiently for releases.

  11. #531
    People are so ungrateful for everything he has done.
    He may be arrogant and egotistical but he is also a genius.
    And I'm not sure he will come back when people beg him too.
    Oh well, not my problem - but I think all you haters might just have ruined things for millions of people, not that you care, of course.

    yea except the fact that he made over 10k a month from his jailbreaks. just because he didn't sell it don't think that people didn't donate lol. plenty of people donated to him and most of em did more then just a buck. So for that matter I see no reason why he quit(unless hes bored of it or something like that), unless its some sort of stunt of his because if he jailbreaks the iPhone 4 I'm pretty sure at least 1 million people will have jailbroken their phone with his jailbreak, and lets just say only 20% of them donate 1 dollar I'm pretty sure you can put 2 and 2 together and come up with the results.
    damn drug dealers, and there jailbroken iPhones... ____ Hit the thanks if you think i suck

    20% of people donate?
    Get real, it's less than 0.1%
    Mopney was never his motive.

    This is actually quite sad. I liked blackra1n...plug in phone, one click, done. Been working fine for over a year now. Too bad he wasn't charging for it...even if he didn't do it for the money I'm sure it'd probably make it better for him. Heck I've probably spent almost as much $ on cydia as I have on the app store...

    thats exactly what made me post my hateful comment, i dont like cocky programmers who know were dying to unlock and jailbreak and he says "guess what i got!?...but its all miiiiinnnneee!" all you other bottom feeders can worship all you want. if it wasnt for his tweet then i would have never said anything. what he should have said to us, " Hey i got the unlock/jb finally working..going to test it for the next couple of days/weeks and follow with a release date" then we would know your trying to do us a favor and not rub it in like a selfish *****. not cool my man

    I don't understand why I must repeat myself time and time again, but here it goes.

    *takes a deep breathe*

    When he posted that, it was already common knowledge that Comex was going to be releasing a jailbreak in the immediate future. That is why he said the jailbreak would "probably" not be coming from him; Comex would be the one it's coming from. He was not being selfish at all, he just wasn't going to go through all of the testing and compiling necessary to take his exploit up to a releasable version for the community to use when there was no reason for him to release a second jailbreak for 4.0/4.0.1 and burn a potentially great exploit.

  20. #539
    they released the 4.0.1 like we all know now. So geohot can keep his jailbreak no there is almost no use for it anymore

    Once again, everyone talks so much crap about geohot. All ur hate comments about him will definitely reverse once he decides to release something...then when he does I'm gonna go to his blog and go thru the countless pages of people saying "thanks" , look for your name and call u out! Like hey, wasn't u talking crap awhile ago??
