Geohot...I agree, you should of taken the money, use to buy new future iPhones and software to jailbreak and still release it for FREE anyways!!! But, you still ate doing the right thing! Jody Sanders Swallows!!!

Wow, I'm really impressed. GeoHot is only 19 and he turned down $10,000. I've been impressed ever since i first saw GeoHot on the Today show in 2007 showing off the first ever unlocked iPhone. Thanks for looking out for the people. The appreciation that you will continue to receive is way more worth while than $10,000.

GeoHot .. dude, I just took a look at Jody Sanders website .. the promises he is making that they have a hack for the unlock is unbelievable. Dude .. if you really want to hurt his business .. DO NOT RELEASE BLACKSN0W on November 4th .. HOLD OFF. We all know you have the true release .. you created it .. by you not releasing it on your 11/4 date, he is breaking the promises he has made to his customers that there phones will be unlock on this date .. by the software his developers created (as he stated on his website). YOU WANT TO HURT HIS BUSINESS .. HOLD OFF ON THE RELEASE OF BLACKSN0W .. THAT WILL HURT HIM TRUELY .. LOL

Yes, Geohot. Release later than the date. Do not announce until you are ready to launch on the day you choose itself.

I support what you're doing GoeHot. I think it's wonderful that you've turned these people down, and turned the money down. The iPhone is unique in having such great supporters and developers... and everyone else wants a slice of the pie. Well if that pie was sliced like this then the iphone would probably have never caught on in the unlocking and JB community at all because it would be a bullsh*t option full of crazy stupid charges for sh*t that hardly works, and many would just rather remain locked - ergo the iphone would not be the wonderful device it is now.... because we DO have good unlockers and dev teams like you who made Cydia, who've unlocked our phones, who've enabled quality jailbreaks. Thanks to you and your kind we have a wonderful world of options in iPhone. Thanks and good job!

Everyone should email the scamming bastards and bring their server down! Send them a message and tell them what you think of them:

Just to put them on place once for ever - take the money Geo, buy yourself ipod and still post it free :) You are the man !!
badul - November 2, 2009 at 1:55am
no, DO NOT take the offer. If you accept, he will get the legal right to the software and who knows the future software that comes along with it.

I totally agree with GeoHot. The $10,000 he "rewards" you ultimately comes from the customers. Jody Sanders is a scum for sure. He even advertised on his website the unlock of baseband 05.11.07 for £19.99 while putting up a $10,000 reward for whoever could unlock baseband 05.07.11 first. He's selling what he doesn't own. I will, and am rather donate $50 to Geohot than buying the "software & support " from Jody Sander.

GeoHot, you are the man. Can't be bought. As for those other F***ups that resell your work, they can go to hell!

Maybe someone should put 1000 listings on ebay for 1 cent (fixed listing price) ebay 's lowest price - thus giving it away inline and screwing the bastards selling them on ebay. I for one will be reporting any auctions to ebay if I see any listings
