You remember GeoHot? He was the 18 y/o kid who was the first to unlock the first gen iPhone back in 2007. More recently, GeoHot released PurpleRa1n, which was the first jailbreak method for the iPhone 3GS running OS 3.0. In other words, the kid is a little genius…
Lucky for us, GeoHot is back at it and this time, he decided that just jailbreaking the iPhone 3GS was not challenging enough so he took on the task to release a tool that will jailbreak all iDevices: iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, iPod Touch 1G, 2G, and 3G.
In a blog post called “Meet the Family” (see picture above), GeoHot says it all in just a few words: “And prepare to meet the program that will jailbreak them all.”
This great new comes just a few days after the Dev Team released its own jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS 3.1 and iPod Touch 2G 3.1.1; a jailbreak which still prevents iPhone 3GS users to jailbreak if they updated their iPhones to 3.1 without pwning it first. This is obviously a big problem for many users who had updated to 3.1 and are now stuck there without being able to jailbreak (even though there are some tricky workarounds).
GeoHot doesn’t have a name for the tool yet. We actually don’t know much about what it will do besides that we know it will “jailbreak them all”. Will it work on both Mac and PC? We don’t know but I do think it will.
The big question is “when”. When will this tool be released? GeoHot said on Twitter he’s got an ETA of 2 days. I really can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeves and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
As usual, I will keep you updated as the news come. You can always refer to our jailbreak section for the most up-to-date info on jailbreaking.
Isn’t that some good news?
