GeoHot Jailbreaks iPhone 4, then retires?
on his blog post George Hotz, the famed iPhone hacker who came up with the first iPhone unlock ever, and had his universal simple jailbreak tool "blackra1n" shows off a jailbroken iPhone 4 screenshot, then gives IMO some very lame reasons for not releasing it and maybe quitting the scene.

To me this guy comes off as arrogant and just looking for attention or something, or Apple paid him off. I respect his past work but I sure don't respect him acting like the world owes him a statue or something (kinda like an hour long show to promote yourself and your "Decision").

screw him, I guess we'll get the iPhone 4 jailbreak from MuscleNerd and the Dev team.

The dude just wants attention. Once people ignore him, he’ll start releasing again. Anyways, I heard comex already has it done, they’re just waiting for 4.1 to get pushed out before they release the JB.

guess they locked the blog for "invited readers" whatever the hell that means.

here's what he said


Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I won’t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(I’ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place it’s in now). I didn’t fully realize most of the current scene don’t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning.
The real reason behind no release isn’t technical. It’s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.
Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake
