    On his blog today, Geohot announced that he will be taking a shot at an iPhone 4 compatible jailbreak, and he's calling it Limera1n. He doesn't say when the release will go public, but he does say not to bug him about it. That's all we know for now.

    Remember he released blackra1n because the dev team was taking too long to release the JB for 3.0.

    The dev-team is waiting on apple to release the next update before the release their JB, if apple takes to long geohot will release his anyway like he did last year.

    I think you need to re-read his blog post. He explicitly says that he does not intend to release a new jailbreak tool:

    The fact that he has manually jailbroken his personal iPhone 4 in no way implies that he will be releasing an end-user tool.

    As far as what he actually wrote, this is quite a stretch. Everything you said here could be assumed, but he never say any of that specifically.

    The "shot" that you are referring to here is his own personal "shot" at it - you make it sound like he's taking a shot at a release, which thelatinist pointed out, is simply not try.

    Maybe you misread it. It was actually really difficult to figure out what the hell he was talking about in some cases.

    Oh well :)

    I believe he said

    Quoting

    As far as a release goes, it probably won't happen from me. limera1n is little more than a raindrop on a website; it was never mentioned by me previous to this post. pwned4life is a complete invention of some blogger in a basement somewhere. When I said pwned for life, I was referring to the original iPhone, 3G, and Touch; which of course are, by the aptly named PwnageTool.

    (please don't ask for release dates. Every person that does makes me want to release a little bit less.)

    any way thanks for the already old news!

    Does he mean he wont be the first one to release a JB? Because he also said "Again, please don't ask for release dates. Every person that does makes me want to release a little bit less".

    I really dont care who releases first, I just want to JB my iPhone 4.

    Dev Team never said they were waiting for the apple update.

    That's what they typically do, plus I think I read it somewhere.

    Here's the point - what you said in your original thread post is this:

    That's simply not true. How is this thread going to be more than an big ass argument now? He didn't say or even really HINT at any of that...

    Plus the title of this thread is:
    ...still not true bro :)

    Dev team has NEVER said they are waiting - it's become collective group think to the point that it's actually gotten news attention. The waiting bit has never come out of their ... mouths,tweets,posts... whatever.

    You have nothing to apologize for, everyone has their opinion.

    BTW: The article says "the comex JB will probably happen once Apple rolls out the new iOS 4.0.1 / 4.1 firmware update for iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G".
    Like i said before the dev-team usually waits until the next update is released, like they have done in the past.

    9to5mac sources a Redmond Pie article for its "Geohot to release limera1n" article; the linked Redmond Pie article displays the Geohot tweets/blog/whatever in which he states that he has no plans to release a jailbreak. The article then speculates that the first iphone 4 public jailbreak will come from comex at some unspecified point in the future.

    Perception is -not- reality; widely disseminated misinformation remains misinformation.

    Redmonpie is not a reliable source. They pretty much just put things into their words (like saying the jailbreak was ready when comex didnt say anything of the sort).

    no no, I thought you were just making it all up for some reason - I was somewhat annoyed, know I know it's the internetz fault... always the internetz fault... and Barry Bonds, Jay Leno, and Hitler.

    Im really tired of geohot. We get it, you can hack every iphone. Unless you plan on releasing it, stop talking smack.
