    Is this the honest-to-goodness iPhone 4 jailbreak we've been waiting for, or just another userland JB? It's hard to say from here... but either way, don't expect Geohot to release it into the wild. In a mildly jaded blog post, the original iPhone hacker makes it clear that whatever he did here was for his own amusement, and judging by the title of that entry ("Meh") the whole breaking-and-entering bit isn't giving him quite the same chuckles it used to. That's a shame, but we hear the iPhone Dev Team is making progress apace, so let's leave Geohot to tackle one of his other promised hacks, mmmkay? [/p]

    it's the same way that he abandoned the ps3 cfw, he teased it, showed it working and then fucked off somewhere never to return, what an ass.

    I could care less about him. Thanks to him, sony managed to find an excuse for taking out otherOS from ps3 :l . Seriously.

    This Geohot is a legend when it comes to hacking. He hacks all that he gets his hands on, including all iOS devices, pissing off Apple, and by not releasing this jailbreak, he is also pissing us off.

    Watch him get the iPhone OS removed as well.

    And we're left with... a piece of plastic.

    Your english is awesome, friend.

    Anyways, that Geohot guy might just be lying. Even if he did hack the IPhone 4, who cares? Somebody will get to it themselves. Just don't envy him, and you'll be fine, just like I am xD

    Way to regurgitate inaccurate blogspam instead of reading or linking to the actual post.

    (its not real)

    Try reading more of the thread.

    Also, geohot has actually done a lot more than just the PS3 he's "famous" for. He's actually behind a ton of existing, working, released hacked beforehand (which is why people that know more than sony shit believe him about the PS3)

    Hmm maybe you should, I don't know... BUY YOUR OWN GAMES! I don't understand pirates like you, you feel you're so entitled to everything but don't want to spend a cent...

    If he's a PS3 owner, that means he does buy his own games (or has a very expensive blu-ray player).

    The fact that he's complaining about no custom firmware release and won't update because of it, makes me doubt that he would continue with that if given the chance.

    Whether or not that is the case has no effect on the validity of your comment.

    Of course it does, who uses a custom firmware for anything but pirating games. And if he was so happy about buying games at all why would he get so worked up over it?

    Except he's clearly not pirating games for the system right now, as it's impossible.

    Use fucking logic.

    So? Would you spend a cent on games if there was a possibility you could get them for free? Unlikely.

    I'm not quite sure what you aren't getting here.
