We hadn’t heard from GeoHot in a while. The little genius hacker might come back to the front of the stage with a new exploit called pwned4life. At Nuit du Hack, a hacking convention held in Paris, GeoHot indeed mentioned that he had found a new exploit that can pwn all iPhones for life, including the yet-to-be-released iPhone 4.

I’m not sure yet what pwnedforlife will do exactly but that sure sounds like some good news. Check out this video for more details.

    This is good news!…Can’t wait for more details!

  • To me, it sounds like he was just saying that he can make a universal exploit to all phones that are currently out there instead of a different one for each. Didn’t catch anything that would lead me to believe it was an umpatchable hole.

    No way Josey. Not again. I would never ever be fooled by this geohot anymore. When i used his blackrain i thought it would stay long but it crashed and didn’t recover. I have to restore and lost my unlock. The Dev Team’s works are more reliable and you can sleep tight with no worries of crashes or bugs.

      I’ve had blackrain for quite some time and so has a friend of mine and we have never had issues with blackrain…only one a tethered jailbroken device have I seen problems but definitely not on my phone

    All speech Geohot

    have fun…

  • Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

  • Metali

    Sorry, but I don’t trust Geohot any longer. He has made wild promises before and then refused to explain why he didn’t come through with them. I think he has some growing up to do.
