It appears that GeoHot has found a jailbreak for all iPhones and iPod touches running OS 3.1.

GeoHot made the announcement on his blog with a post entitled, "Meet the Family".

no affiliation to greenpois0n. and it's in some ways the complete opposite of purplera1n. but still 10 seconds. and may work for every version of software *ever*, based on the prettiness of the exploit


Stay tuned for more information once it becomes available.

Well you don't have to use his jailbreak when it comes out. You can wait for another party to release and be disappointed yourself.

I think the title GEOHOT discovers, must be changed to GEOHot is working on the jailbrake....Until is done you can change the title...

I like GeoHot (George Hotz) as he was the first person to publicly announce a jailbreak for the iPhone and he continues to find ways to jailbreak iPhones. I like the Dev-Team as well, they do great work too. GeoHot and the Dev-Team keep each other motivated to find new jailbreaks. They are both cocky and they have the right to be. When you start finding ways to jailbreak and unlock iPhones then you can be cocky too, but for right now i suggest you just show appreciation for the work that these two do and keep talking on your iPhone. P.S. Did you know that George (GeoHot) is only 19??????

seeing is believing and patching, I will wait until it comes out and after I jailbrake my iphone and I can use it in any network, I will say GeoHot RULES, but if this is only an announcement, then...I will keep my mouth shout and not saying he is a genius

GeoHot is the first and the last ones, he's the brain over the brains and his team (if he have one) it's certainly the team over the teams...

Geohot may come up with some slick, quick "fixes", but the quality leaves something to be desired. His breaks aren't properly patched and cause tons of crashes with Cydia apps. Props for finding another innovative approach to cracking the iPhone, but I'll be sticking to Dev-Team.

I assume you're talking about the first release of purplera1n? Old news, bro. Way to spread misinformation.

It's not about the tool, it's about the exploit. Dev-Team is still using geohots exploits for jailbreak and unlock. The point is that he found an exploit for all devices and as he is saying for all firmwares (meaning future firmwares). That's the main thing here. It's up to you what tool will you use to jailbreak/unlock your iPhone then.

Dev-Team acknowledged the fact that they implemented Geohots idea into their work, but did the harder work of making it work all the way; debugging/patching the kernel.

Misinformation is only misinformation if it is not true. In addition to rain not working properly, Geohot endangered jailbreaks for future 3GS owners by being a cocky, hotshot and releasing his hack early. I am 3GS owner and I was dying for the new JB also, but understood that by waiting more people would be helped. There is a difference between talented and professional.

I've had 3.0 with ra1n rc2 as did thousands of others without issue.

I certainly wasn't looking forward to waiting 3 months for DT to release the jailbreak. I also distinctly remember Geohot taking a jab at them, saying once they patch that hole, he'd find a new one in a week.. and look where we are. Not only that, but if his method truly works on all models and versions indefinitely, what will you say? I respect DT for their professional-quality software, but why do they do things like diss Windows users now over PwnageTool? Geohot had versions for both, it worked in 15 seconds, you didn't have to download a firmware file, and he had a help hotline. DT are not gods and they're just as cocky as Geohot, but at least Geo can back his shit up.

Thats a large claim for him to say it may work for every version of software *ever*. I hope he has this right. If so im simply amazed.

He's the only one that seems to really do anything in a prompt manner. He keeps us updated and his releases are quick and simple. The Dev team and their work are great but they usually leave you waiting forever without any explanation. There policy seems to be leave us alone and we will get it to you when we want to. Go geohot!!!!!!!! You Rock .
