    Guys like this is the reason GeoHot is leaving, look at his join date...these kids that are used to the click one exe and jailbreak your phone kind...

    If you were around the early days you would be thankful for all the things Goehot did for the community. Taking a process that used to take a little bit under an hour plus countless hours of "fixing" stuff like youtube and wifi to just being able to run one executable and your done.

    George, Thank you for all your hard work.

    On another note, I think Steve Jobs and his cohorts should be worried (when jailbreakers start leaving the scene) because without JB, a good majority of us WILL NOT touch the iPhone. The more jailbreakers that leave the JB scene, the less appealing the iPhone with it's closed garden policy would become!
    Android may just win over many converts.
    Not sure if you remember but he was once affiliated with th dev team so yes you did use his stuff.

    It's pretty ironic isn't it? All of these people talking **** about geohot. I am willing to bet that almost every one of them has used his jailbreak before. I, for one, will miss geohot. His jailbreak was one of the first one that I used that was a one click process. Does anyone remember the jailbreaks after the first jailbreakme.org? (or whatever site you had to go on in your iPhone 2G browser)The ones that you had to follow over 30 steps just to jailbreak. The ones that you had to spend hours working on then messing up and having to start all over again. Those were terrible. And now gehotz has helped to make this easier. You guys are just ungrateful. or never tried the less sophisticated jailbreaks of the iPhone 2G/iPod Touch 1G.

    Are you calling him a crybaby or are you telling him to cry, baby?

    I think you may want to redo your word count

    This is too bad. He had a lot to offer the community.

    This is why he should be charging for his work!!!! People that can't can't and people that can do and get paid for it. When you work hard for free and don't make any money all the haters and BS takes it's toll then you start to questioning yourself and then flash out at everybody. It's like the love of your work is gone I went through something like this then I noticed a good friend of mine doing great we did the same type of work he said charge them stop working for free and I been doing great ever since.
