Geohot Posts More Details About Limera1n, Release Today?

Geohot has posted a limera1n update which states that it was 6 months in the making and will be "released today to get chronicdev to do the right thing".

It seems as though Geohot wants his jailbreak to be released rather then the SHAtter exploit because newer iBoots show his hole fixed.

MuscleNerd has said: "If geohot's exploit works on all, & since either exploit is as likely to be "known" by Apple, his makes more sense IMHO"

Some want Geohot's exploit because it works on the iPhone 3GS; however, others believe it should be saved in hopes of it working for the iPhone 5.

P0sixninja: "wow, geohot steals our untethered exploit just so he can release first.... talk about #asshole"

Stay tuned!
