He made a final tweet before shutting down his twitter account. I failed to screenshot it, but it said something like "follow @mikecohenn for further updates on jailbreaking"

Might be a dumb question and kind of hopeful. What did geohot mean in the article by "It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning." Do you think he's releasing the jailbreak tomorrow? I am not asking for one nor a timeline. I have Iphone 3GS new bootrom jailbreaked at 3.1.3 with spirit and I am perfectly fine with it.

Obviously not since he shut down his twitter too. After staying up all night drinking red bull and talking in robot voices with his friends on the phone, he decided not to.
RIP Geohot

Here's the facts by me... he was one the best to come along and make JB assecible to the masses. Simple click and install... but he couldve just faded from the scene like most software cracker teams. Oxygen, Radium... they just stopped. No post about we cracked this program but we decided to keep it. What the hell was that... hopefully a break away from the scen will help him focus on what he got into the scene for. If it's a job at Apple... cool. Hell, iOS damn near has all the features i JB for anyways except access to cracked .ipas and I've bought most of them that I loved. R.I.P. Geohot but even Jordan nor JayZ could stay retired. When you're great you'll come back and show the new genz how it's done.

Even if it turned out he wasn't actually hired by Apple as G says, I can't blame Geohot for stopping incremental progress reports. I'll take the iPhone4 jailbreak whenever it's ready. If the exploit using redn0w for jailbreak and ultrasn0w for unlock had been distributed before the release of iOS4, Apple would have likely closed the loophole. There is no rule that says Geohot has to follow any schedule. This is freeware. A lot of work goes into finding these exploits, and I for one appreciate Geohot and the others that have dedicated their time and resources so I can keep upgrading, unlocking and jailbreaking with little or no effort. I'd hate to lose a good iPhone hacker, but if apple DID hire him, more power to him.

Don't worry guys, his parole hearing is coming up and this attitude isn't helping. I'll see to it that he gets another 6 years for vile, vicious, self-righteous behavior. His mom was getting lonely in her cell anyway. Ouch :)

If you want people to take you seriously and actually read your post, please avoid writing in capitals. You are just coming off as rude and disrespectful. That said, I would like to explain why I disagree with you. I am awfully thankful thankful for what he did for the iPhone community, and what he allowed me to do with my iPhone. Still, to post about having an exploit ready and saying that he doesn't want to release for no reason is undeniably childish. I understand how many questions he must have been receiving from people who are new to jailbreaking, but just remember that we were all once "noobs". Besides, nobody forced him to start working on the iPhone. He did it of his own accord. Once again, I am thankful for that, but that does not make it acceptable for him to tease people about having a jailbreaking tool, and then saying that every time somebody asks him about it, he wants to release it a bit less.

Um, zibri and geohot are not similar at all. Zibri stole the work of a team of people and released it on his own. He 'quit' the scene because he was not capable of producing any hacks of his own. Geohot is an unquestioned genius and has single handedly created many of the tools we have enjoyed throughout the years.

You guys do realize that Geohot accepted a job with Apple about 3 weeks ago. That is the reason for no jailbreak and for privatizing his blog and twitter account. He's working against the dev team now and that is what is taking Comex and dev team so long to make a jailbreak.

Boo Hoo.... People keep asking me for Jailbreaks..... Boo Hoo. Enough already, nobody cares you sniveling little prick. Kill yourself and be done with it, I'm sick and tired of hearing you complain about your fans asking you for help. You should have been stillborn. You'll be replaced and forgotten overnight with another geek. Then what? That's right.... We'll still remember you were a tool. Deal with it child.
