While i appreciated GH's work greatly, id say this is kind of childish. But hey, its perogative. His software was good but not great as the blacksn0w failed for me as well as others. There are more efficient ways than using GH's stuff. To retaliate bk, GH should have released the JB and charged $20 or more. He can make money off the haters. If people want it, they'd pay it. He could laugh right bk as we knownthere are PLENTy of people who want this iPhone JB'd.

No doubt he didn't get the respect he deserved, but don't panic... He thrives on the attention- therefore he will be back. Right around the time someone (other than the devTeam) steps up to the plate to take his place, he'll come running back. He's like the girl who only wants you when you have a girlfriend. He tries to act all nonchalant, "got one of these in the mail today, thought I'd give it a shot," but he wanted the exact sort of attention it'd bring. He has a Histrionic personality disorder.

although i don't like this guy at all, but i agree with what he did. people are idiots and they just want someone to do something for them for free. i used to provide help for something else somewhere else on the internet, and i had to disappear from the whole internet for the same reason. i had to move to another country with a new life and new people, i even changed my eating habits so they won't bug me. i'm thinking of getting a surgery too. i hope he learned his mistake, DON'T reveal your identity to people, if you wanna volenteer and help the community with something, just throw the thing to them and then vanish away from the planet. they just wanna know who you are and complement your work because they want other thing for free. and they don't want to stay inline, no, they all want it at the same time, NOW!!!!. anyway, you people doesn't deserve anything, that's why GeoHot should quit the whole thing and just live his life.

"Retire, relax, enjoy your family. It is just a phone. Not worth it.". This is what I recently read. It was from Steve Jobs.
Rodrigo - July 13, 2010 at 11:27am
Not by Steve. Was a mistake. Who said that is the person who said that received the mails. But we don't even know if Steve Jobs wrote those emails, since other two sites said that the public relations department of Apple said that Steve didn't wrote that.

i dont blame him for what he did to his blog or twitter..because 90 percent of the followers on his blog or twitter account were demanding and asking for too much from this guy..he helped out everyone with the 31.2 jailbreak and saved us guys should thank him for what he did and what hes trying to do also..he is helpng us out he is wasting his own time so we can have a better life with an unlocked iphone.

wtf, i see some surprised ppl over here , !!! , this is the least reaction he could take after reading all that shitty replies ppl left on his last blog post, he was doing fun , he uploaded a pic of his jailbroken i4 which he just received , and expected ppl to be grateful and act nicely after his last silence period and instead he got called names and insulted despite of all what he has done before, and those talking about donations, plz spare us this shit and FUCK OFF , nobody has put his hand in ya pocket , you did that by ur own will AFTER u used his release. The normal reaction is what he did. I m not a great fan of geohot, i must admit that, but at least i can show "RESPECT" if those retards who insulted him ever heard about this word before , damn.

Language my brother! While I agree with everything you said I try not to swear. There is no need to lower ourselves to the levels of the haters. It is a sad day for the iPhone community if he doesn't come back - and who could blame him? Sop much hate and so little gratitutde :(
Ahmed - July 13, 2010 at 12:09pm
i totally agree with you @confucious he just got nervous, and @Sherif take it easy man, they are not worth it. just like i said before people are idiots and they don't deserve the great effort this community has done to them. "law 7abeebak 3asal, ma tel7asoosh kollo".

Bull crap.. he's all bull crap!
Kingsford - July 13, 2010 at 10:02am
I wouldnt be surprised if some fanboy stalker tracked him down and tried to hurt him or kill him.... Maybe kidnap him and force him to unlock their iPhone 4. haha
Kingsford - July 13, 2010 at 10:00am
What a tool. He's an idiot he could sell the program for $1 a person and make over $100,000. I'd pay a $1 to jailbreak my phone.

You'd think so right? But this is a gang of pirates and software thieves he'd be trying to sell to. He might make a dollar, but as soon as someone had their hands on the software- they'd just make a mirror of it, and it'd be circulated in places like The Pirate Bay/Rapidshare/Megaupload, etc. His old strategy of give freely and accept donations was the only viable way to make money honestly. No one's going to donate if you're selling the software, however if it's free they may very well donate $5 instead of buying for $1, or downloading elsewhere for free.
BtheG - July 13, 2010 at 1:05pm
He'd actually make a million probably easy ! Bet. But there's resins why it's not for sale & donations are excepted instead.
B - July 13, 2010 at 7:27am
Not being funny as greatful as we are to him for his work, dont come out and say iv unlocked the iphone 4 and then not release because with the world how it is today everyone wants something for nothing i donated to Geo and now i hope he enjoys doing other things. Good Luck
