    The don't even inform people what his job is at Facebook. Piracy prevention control? :D

    "On June 27, 2011, it was reported that Hotz had been hired by Facebook. However, according to a CNet article, he had actually been employed since May, which was confirmed by Facebook. It is unknown what his role at the company is.?"

    Don't hold your breath... Most likely he has a cease and desist from his employers on his external activities as they don't want to be involved in that mess.

    So, we have to wait until someone else figures it out.

    That's your opinion. No Doubt Geohot is smart but he is also a Smart Ass at times and has a huge ego. One of the reason the Dev-team and he split ways. I trust there are other smart people working on it relax and give it time.

    Most of the exploits have been found by people other than Geohot. The last time GeoHot made a jailbreak where there were no good alternatives was in the early 3.0 days.

    the man is smart he went where the money is, and I doubt its in jailbreaking. He is a genius when it comes to reverse engineering so I say he is allowed to have quite the ego, i'm sure most here would have that too considering how young he was when he first started. Let the man live his life, others will fill his shoes its the ecosystem of the hacking world ;)

    He has no reason to continue to jailbreak because he'll be rich soon if he has stock options once Facebook goes IPO. I hope he got some when he joined or bought some.

    C'mon guys, he is likely not a naive English speaker. PR could be Puerto Rico....

    One hundred years from now, people will be worshiping geohot. Heck, this thread proves some people already are.

    100 years from now, not one person out of a 100,000 will know who he was.

    Have you ever watched Jay Leno go out on the street and ask people about simple history ?
    Sadly, most average Americans cannot answer the simplest questions. :(

    Yep, I've watched Leno's man on the street interviews, but c'mon, that's LA. :)

    Ever since St. Geohot produced a jailbreak way back when, these insipid threads start when people start wondering why a jb is taking so long. Never mind that Apple has continued to close holes making jb much more difficult. No, if only the most excellent Geohot were on the scene we'd have a jb in an hour.

    Yeah, so? His native language may be Spanish and he may not be fluent in English. Do you speak more than one language (yes, I do). On top of that, we don't have a national language, if you want one then I suggest you march up to capitol hill and ask for it.

    Lastly, there is simply no need to call someone out on there typing proficiency in any language as you have no idea of that person. It could be something simple like a language barrier or it could be something such as a disability. Either way, you dropping into a thread just to post that is pretty ignorant.
