Geohot is Back With a New Limera1n Jailbreak! [Update x2]

Geohot has suddenly appeared back on the jailbreak scene with a new bootrom exploit he is calling limera1n.

Geohot posted a picture on of four iDevices displaying the limera1n logo.

P0sixninja has since confirmed that it is real:

yes, the news about geohot is true, the day after we release ETA he decides he wants a piece of the #pie

and yes it is a different bootrom exploit, he wants us to use it in GP, but there's no way we'll make our ETA if we do

Greenpois0n was scheduled to be released on October 10th, at 10:10:10 GMT.

StealthBravo also tweeted: geohot's return is no joke. He is back and is going to release limera1n unless someone talks him out of it.

P0sixninja has said that they will use Geohot's exploit if they can implement it in time; however, they will not change the release date.

We are not changing our release date. If we can implement @geohots before 10/10 we will use that, otherwise we're using ours. #roadblocks

Update 2:
MuscleNerd: As dramatic as geohot's last-minute all-device JB is, still a shame that two bootrom holes will be burned at once.

There is rumour that geohot will on monday also release unlock Limesn0w supporting 5.14.02 baseband. Let's hope it's true!

Releasing both of these will be better for everyone in the iDevice community- since greenp0ison is only for A4 processor devices, the majority of us aren't losing a thing by releasing both. Congrats and thanks to chronic dev team for their hard work, but seriously GeoHot's release is going to help far more people!

Maybe he is working for Apple and want to kill all exploits faster (so Apple patch software/hardware faster)

Maybe Dev-Team is also working for Apple, so they keep Jailbreak/Unlock alive time to time, so a lot of people in the world buy iPhones (otherwise they never buy, like myself)

Dammit, if he release this he is really stupid... save it for the next major update like 4.2 and we know we can quickly jailbreak that too! But no, sure go ahead, waste it now...
