    He just posted the YAGE-ish tweet today sometime (few hours ago, maybe?), so it isn't that old.

    I understand where he's coming from. People don't seem to understand or care that these guys are spending countless hours of their free time making these jailbreaks and unlocks for free, yet they harass and insult them because they must have their jailbreak now. Ungrateful idiots. He may have been a bit of an egotistical jerk, but Geohot gave a lot to the jailbreak community without any compensation. Thanks, man.

    As a point of info, Geohot took donations and likely made lots of $$$.

    In lieu of Mr. Hotz leaving us, I will now be accepting any donations you wish to give him.

    I was thinking more along the lines of charging people for the jailbreaks, but I didn't know that he was taking donations.

    Geo got a Nizzan Z for doing his first jailbreak, not too shabby.

    Eh, I don't care. He was a douche bag about the whole thing anyway. He overly-dramatized the whole situation. Boohoo geohot, ****ing cry more.

    oooo he closed his blog and twitter account. Sooo dramatic.

    He's an attention-whore. He'll probably be back in a week.

    Whatever, who's next in the long line awaiting their 15 minutes of fame? Step up, we haven't got all day.

    Ok, I'm just gonna say it. Does anyone think he looked a bit like Frodo?

    I wonder what he expected? He tried to act like it's no big deal "got one of these in the mail today, thought I'd give it a shot," but at the same time it's like he wanted some sort of attention. And then he gets all butt hurt about it. To each their own I guess:confused:

    He'll be back, what the hell else is he going to do?

    He's been bitten by the bug, and the money, notoriety, and other perks will surely bring him back at some point, mark my word.

    Mostly the notoriety. He seems to thrive on the attention.
