    Geohot gave a talk at Nuit du Hack explaining the history of iPhone hacking and revealed that there is an unreleased exploit in the bootrom of every iPhone, iPod, and iPad.

    "There is also, I hinted to this a couple times, an unreleased exploit in every iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch in the bootrom to get code execution. And you know if I ever do another jailbreak, that's the exploit I have. If you've seen I posted like a picture of 4.0 jailbroken. I posted my iPad jailbroken. All before Spirit was released. And I used like a completely different set of exploits which maybe when iPhone 4 comes out will be out."

    That's pretty dang impressive. He seems to always find holes at least a week before the iPhone Dev Team.

    Yep, he's really good at it.
    Sometimes months before others not just weeks :D
    I expect Limera1n to be out soon after iphone 4 is out.

    p0sixninja also indicated he has a bootrom exploit, so I'm hopeful for a jailbreak of the iPhone 4 very close to launch :)

    I hate that annoying little kid.

    He's super smart but he is always so arrogant and sounds so full of himself.

    He's like 5'4 and 105 pounds I would slap him silly if I saw him in real life.

    He sure is talented, but you have to catch him on a good day. Sometimes, he wants to hack the iPhone and help everybody, other times, he ignores everybody who asks him. He makes thousands of dollars everytime an unlock or jailbreak is released.

    What do you figure he makes estimated per jailbreak or unlock?

    Maybe like a 100 grand or so?

    What do you all think?

    no problem...

    I hope he makes a lot more than that with his mad skillz.
    The guy is very talented, has a gift and is using it in a way to help as many people as possible.

    He only asks for support after doing so. Some folks need to chill out and recognize the superlatives in his doing so.

    Respeck!

    Guy kicks some serious ass.

    Doubtful. I know Jody Sanders offered Geohot $10,000 for an unlock that he could sell. Geohot declined, he probably makes about that much in donations anyway.

    Good luck:cool:

    You think he only makes 5 digits per jailbreak? I think it would be more or less in the 6 digit range.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's at least $100,000....considering donations are coming from all over the world to the guy.

    Oh yes, I really can't wait to JB the iPhone 4. First iOS device with 512 mb of RAM! Might finally be enough to JB stable!

    The 3GS was pretty stable with half of that amount of RAM.
    The iphone 4 will fly IMO.

    I hope he makes a lot of money of jailbreaks and his future career because he's going to need it to get women.

    Why do you care so much what he does or if he gets women or not?
    Stop hating.
    He does a great job at what he puts his mind into like JB and hacking.
    Thats all that matters.
    Without him we would have to depend on you for jailbreaks :D

    I think he has good reason to be. Would you rather he never bothered then with the JBing?

    If he was great looking he'd be out getting laid instead of jail breaking phones.

    It's no coincidence that the less attractive you are the more you know.

    Except in my case where I am neither good looking NOR clever.
