    My personal opinion? Smart tactic by Geohot to give Apple the impression that a release is still far out. This may (if the rumors are true) make Apple release iOS 4.0.1 sooner rather than "wait for the jailbreak."
    Glad to see someone using their brain. GeoHot obviously has a reason for not releasing the jailbreak. He has never dissapointed and I'm so dissapointed in all the people calling him a jerk because when he does release a jailbreak the same people praise him. Hipocrites!

    Apple has had 4 iphones and many many updates to forever kill the jailbrak, but it can't or won't. This cat-and-mouse game is simply worthless, and I doubt GeoHot is trying to bait Apple.

    I refuse to believe that Apple really really wants jailbreaking to cease. Jailbreaking keeps around a very intelligent and tech-savvy crowd that shells money on $300 phones. Why would Apple want that customer base to go away to Android.

    I refuse to believe that Apple can't find a way to shut any exploit down. Maybe I am wrong, and maybe GeoHot is trying to bait apple, but if GeoHot is a genius for jailbreaking iOs$, then Apple people must be gods for inventing it.

    It's funny seeing someone call the iPhone 4 the "iSuck" since they don't have it lol. Idiot. I like my JB 3GS too, but it pales in comparison to my iPhone 4. The End.
    Do i have one now, NO. But yes I upgraded my ole ladies and pre ordered her 32GB. Even though we all told her it was going to be a POS from the get go, because Apple is famous for making crap quality first hand. And 2 days later she sold it for $400 (goes to show how eager she was to get rid of it). Now she is back on her Nokia 7610b (might i ad has much better reception than her Isuck 4 did).

    LMAO. I dont think very many people will agree with you that your Isuck 4 has better reception than a 3GS. Have u seen all the BS problems those things have? Let me guess, we're all blind?

    Just because im unlocked, doesnt mean i use T-Mobile. It could be that i'm unlocked for various other reasons that I would rather Apple not know about.

    Boy your posts really makes me laugh. I'm sorry that you got so much hatred for the iPhone 4 for some reason but please stop making up these silly little posts of yours. Your lady never got an iPhone 4 nor sold it for only $400. If she did then it would of been a lot smarter for her to just return it other then to be stuck with a new 2 year contract with little to no profit. I call it BS.

    I'd just have to put it like this..., YES!!! I think it was a bad move to show a "supposedly", jailbroken iPhone 4. And then say don't ask when it's release is possible. More or less, I won't be the one to release it. But, look at it this way.... It WILL be done!!! And we will all get to enjoy it. Let's all let the great one wallow in his achievements, because respect is due!!! Imagine you released it, and then got 100 emails an hour asking when it's gonna be released. He's young, and he's brilliant. Please leave SOME room for error.
    I don't agree with the fact that he dangled a "picture"... That we have "already seen" in front of us, but I CAN understand his frustration of world wide questioning.
    I agree that it was not the best way to announce the iphone4 JB...., but at least we have some hope right?????

    Geohot may be a bright guy, but he's still a total tool. He isn't the only hacker on the scene, and with his attitude it just isn't worth it. Go F*** yourself while we wait for someone else to release a jailbreak.

    First off, good job to GeoHot if he really has jailbroken iPhone 4, kid has talent.
    Though it wouldn't surprise me if the kid has been contacted by Apple, not to release the jailbreak, and maybe even hand it over to them so they can find the exploit and close the hole. Money can persuade anyone. Im sure Apply would be happy to pay him a lot more than what he earns in donations.

    Hopefully I'm wrong but hey who knows?

    He was offered $10k to produce an unlock and accepted the challenge. MN and I asked him not to take money from someone we really disapprove of he produced the unlock because he had said he would but turned down the money.

    Money is not his motivation.

    I am surprised this thread is still going.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Comex has the jailbreak to release. The whole Apple/Geo conspiracy is ludicrous.

    Geohot is a very smart person indeed. But in my opinion he does come across as a bit of a arse.

    There he goes again, dangling the jailbreak carrot in front of the hungry masses. Leave him alone and he will release it. He always does. Now is his time to show off and say look at me" I have a jailbroken iphone4."

    don't forget that he said he has a bootrom exploit. Maybe that's the reason we won't see a release from him?
