    Geohotz said "at 9AM EST tomorrow, I will be asking for all of your help..if you come through for me, i'll make you an untethered jailbreak. also $1000.00" so I guess iPhones/iPods with the new bootrom will finaly have an untethered JB.

    I agree.

    He doesn't promise an untethered unlock at 9A today or anytime today. Just that he shall solve it.

    We shall see.

    What is the ..."also 1000.00$" part? Is he saying that if we all donate 1000$ he will work on it or what? :confused:

    That's because he made an assumption based on a couple of Geohot tweets...

    And we now know the rest of the story.

    So if he wins the contest with our help he will give the first person to sight a balloon for him $1,000 and will make an untethered jailbreak? Weird.

    Gotta admire the guy's confidence, though. Not "I'll try to make a tethered jailbreak" or even "I'll make one if it's at all possible." Everyone's going to assume he knows something, now...

    It sounds fishy to me too. How do we even knows those "mythical" balloons exist?

    geohot's ego knows no bounds and it's not hard to see why the DevTeam dumped him.

    He's smart but he's just a little kid.
    He seems to change his mind every day.
    I think if he grows up and becomes a little more serious he will accomplish alot.

    'Everyone' doesn't owe him anything. He came up with a jb solution before the DevTeam. Big deal.

    No, no, that's unfair. He didn't just "come up with" it, he released it for free to the whole world, he revealed his method too, he declined a $10000 bribe from the scum at iphoneunlock to make it exclusive to them, it really IS a big deal for very many people, even if not everyone.
