Geohot is Now Working For Facebook

Facebook has hired Geohot, the popular hacker behind the iPhone and Sony Playstation jailbreaks, reports TechUnwrapped.

Joshua Hill (P0sixninja) recently mentioned in an interview that Geohot is trying to avoid the limelight after his legal battle with Sony and is concentrating on his day job at Facebook.

Gabe Rivera of Techmeme reports that Geohot started at Facebook in May and announced it on his Facebook account on June 17th. His last wall post says, "Facebook is really an amazing place to work...first hackathon over."

We wish Geohot the best of luck at Facebook but also hope he has some time left to contribute to the iPhone community.

I was wondering how much is getting paid by facebook? .probably 100 grand a yr... If I had the money I would pay Geohot $500,000 to challenge him for an Ipad2 JB and unlock Iphone 4 ? Geohot is a clever fellow...I respect him Thanks Geohot for the opportunity you have giving us to jailbreak our devices

OK, OK, OK, the only one doing something for the JB is gone, all the other posers are being paid by apple or not doing a shit... Dev team and chronic team, my ass, bunch of posers, since 4 months ago they are saying they will release the Ipad2 JB and we are still waiting, and the JB is based on Limerain, which was done by Mr. Hotz, so at the end they based their job in Geohot, so we lost the guy, forget about a JB again...

I need a OMG internet too. BTW, this is a smart move, getting an important hacker in Facebook is good for security (of Facebook)
