Geohot iPhone 4 Jailbreak

Geohot, the little genius behind blackra1n and blacksn0w is back at it again. In a blog post he wrote today, Geohot showed us a picture of a jailbroken iPhone 4 running Cydia.

Geohot says that he won’t however release the jailbreak to the public and made it clear that the limera1n jailbreak we talked about before was nothing more than a website with no specific goal.

Got one of these in the mail today and figured I’d give it a shot.

As far as a release goes, it probably won’t happen from me. limera1n is little more than a raindrop on a website; it was never mentioned by me previous to this post. pwned4life is a complete invention of some blogger in a basement somewhere. When I said pwned for life, I was referring to the original iPhone, 3G, and Touch; which of course are, by the aptly named PwnageTool.

Again, please don’t ask for release dates. Every person that does makes me want to release a little bit less.

Did you read this last sentence well? I understand Geohot doesn’t want to harassed with questions about a possible release date, which lets us hope he might be willing to release an iPhone 4 jailbreak one day or the other.

If I had a guess, I’d say that Geohot is working on this jailbreak right at this moment and that he will do everything he can to release a jailbreak for the iPhone 4 before the Dev Team or Comex do..

What do you think?

  • shausha

    Of course he’s working on the jailbreak.

    He’s just an immature jerk that likes the attention. The jailbreak world would be better off without characters like him.

  • ghettocowboy

    We will never see the JB from GeoHOT because of Shhhh*t like you Shausha

  • Ifonechip

    I don’t think he is going to release one. I believe he enjoy the fact that everyone is contacting and begging him to release a jailbreak.. It’s call wanting attention !

  • Nelson

    How is GeoHot “an immature jerk that likes attention?” sorry, I don’t know much about him except that he hacked the first iphone

  • steveb

    Geohot is a tosser!

  • Shadow

    He’s really good at this stuff. And the scene wouldn’t be where it is without him. But like was previously stated, he’s still an immature jerk who likes attention. So frankly, he needs to shut the hell up unless he’s ready to do something. He’s an ass and I’ve learned to ignore him and just pay attention to the dev team and muscle nerd and people who actually care about the stuff and not just about their own reputation.

  • Geohot-critic

    I have been following jb’s and the like very closely like i’m sure slot of you have. And this is the truth.

    Geohot was so ‘hot’ cause he broke 3g units running most if not all firnwares before 3.1.3. After then he has been posting and tweeting abt how he has been breaking all these units and tellin us how he won’t release anything.

    My opinion is this. Geohot is over until he releases an up to date jb or unlock. He is no longer the master. Only comex and the like who constantly release programs to us iphoners should be regarded to highly. What good is geohot if he is the stig of the iphoners and no more?? Yes he is good at jailbreaking, but How do we know that the above pic doesn’t just mean he is also good at Photoshop??

    I will only believe geohot is any good when i actually use his progs to unlock and jb a new device.

    Please excuse all the typos. Not used to my new iPhone… Which was jailbroken with spirit.

  • Robzy

    Why tell everyone he can JB the device if he has no intention of releasing it?

    That in my opinion is (like others have said) being an attention seeker.
    “Oh look at me, I’ve done it. But I’m not going to release it.”

  • Shadow

    Oh yeah, and thank goodness for posixninja and planetbeing, and all working on the linux tools for the iphone. Once you finally get them built, they work great!

  • nate

    The reason that he wont release it is probably because although he has jailbroken it it is probably pretty buggy and he doesn’t wnlant to release something buggy. And the reaason he would show that he had jailbroken it is so that we would know that he has done it. And he didn’t release a jailbreak for 3.1.3 because he knew that if he did apple would patch the exploit in Ios 4

  • Chris

    It’s more than possable that it’s a tertherad jailbreak and with the up and coming release of the new spirit from comex which is unterthered what’s the point of a tertherad jailbreak.

  • nate

    @Chris I highly doubt that its a tethered jailbreak, remember he had an interbreeding 3.1.3 jailbreak so this prpobably uses a similar exploit.

  • kenny enn

    who knows it could always be a screenshot from another iphone 3g just uploaded to the iphone 4 cause of no shsh banner??

  • Duetschpire

    1st iphone 4 won’t have the SHSHs banner because it wasn’t release in the era below ios 4 where SHSHs were saved. And as the iphone 4 has ios 4 and haven’t been jailbroken YET, then no SHSHs saved for it yet too. (think twice)
    for those unpleased people, why don’t YOU work on something fascinating like a one click jailbreak too? and a one click carrier unlock?
    He did it, and he’s waiting… it’s his hard work, and his right to wait.
    If you’re really up to date you should’ve known already that apple is working of the 4.0.1 ios which they think it’s the cure for their messy reception.
    if (ANY) jailbreak is released for iphone 4 now, apple would so easy patch the exploits for it, and some dumb people (like the ones who up updated to 3.1.3) will upgrade to 4.0.1 and loose the jailbreak and start crying.

  • Chris

    @ Nate
    maybe !!! But the only way we will know is if goehot makes is public

  • Chris

    @ Duetschpire
    well said !!!

  • Boy2real

    Thumbs up to everyone that’s downing Geonot he an ass he can keep his sh•ty ass jb, the dev is better. hotz has been having fun playing with adobe Photoshop

  • Demikoro

    Yes Linux tools always work best. Hello I am Demi, a compute programer that uses Linux. Yo what I have seen Geo has been working on his jailbreak. If you really think he is being an attention hog just don’t bother him. If he loses attention he would have to release it to try and pick it up again. I know his side of this too, I work in porting Itunes to Linux enviroments, and porting Admork to Mac/Win interfaces. I have people buging me on release of stable versions every day and after a while it pisses people off.

  • Jeff

    GeoHistory….or maybe GeoPhotoshop

    Release it or STFU

  • Rick

    Yes he is good at this. And yes he is a dick. That is the truth

  • I Love Geo’s work but honestly he is being a conceited little prick about this. I understand getting bugged by 1 billion people can be a frustrating task but if he doesn’t want the attention he should stop jailbreaking. I mean you wouldn’t become a famous singer/Actor and ignore your fans b/c you wouldn’t last very long. The same rules apply to the J/b scene. If you cant handle the heat get out of the kitchen.

  • I am sure if geohot does release a jailbreak , everyone will use it, so stop bitching so much …….he is good , bad , inbetween , wft ! all he said is he has a jailbreak and he not going to release it, may be he is testing it , maybe it is not ready…..comex has a jailbreak , did he release it yet no !!!, same story as geohot but just worded differently, end result we have nothing yet …..english language can be so diffcult sometimes

  • Derrick

    I agree with the many posts. Why say he jailbroken it, but don’t bug me cause I’m not releasing it ever? It’s douchee. Obviously he wants the attention.

    When he releases something he will be revelant

  • Brian

    People already know what I think of the immature, egomaniac nutcase. I agree with all the naysayers…The guy is nothing but an immature attention hound who thinks he sits on a pedestal high above everybody else.

    The NUT would NOT have posted, with a pic of a JB’d 4 idevice, “I HAVE THE JB…BUT DONT ASK ME FOR IT”, if he truly did not want people to ask. he claims he doesnt want people asking, but we all know better. That is exacyly why he did post it..because he wants the attention and wants to be the center of the universe.

    Personally, I think the entire JB community would be far better off without this immature nutcase and his seemingly endless ‘head games’.

    Plus, I have very little respect for a GUY like him who gets caught with a 19 year old GUY in a bathroom stall doing the er um…oral thingy.

    He is a sick, immature egomaniac who thinks his $hit smells better then others. The more this nut opens his mouth and the more games he plays, the more enemies he earns…and he’s earning them quickly……For good and valid reasons!

  • Duetschpire

    You’re freaken sick mate, I think you have an obsession or something is so very wrong going in your mind lmao.
    This is the most funny sick comment I’ve ever seen in my life on a blog about JB.
    I advice you to see a doctor ASAP as your case is just ganna get worst.
    You need a rehab mate…
    P.S: Take it easy on your nerve, you would have a heart attack one day over something that’s not worth it…

  • Blogga

    Geohot said on his blog that that photo is fake and that he is quitting ipod/iphone hacks for good.
