    Geohot Shuts Down His iPhone Blog and His Twitter Account
    Geohot has shut down the iPhone blog he used to announce and release jailbreaks over the past few years.

    Visiting the site now says, "This blog is open to invited readers only".

    This comes after his recent announcement of achieving a jailbreak for the iPhone 4 without plans for public release was met with a lot of negativity.

    His last update to the blog read:

    Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I won’t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(I’ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place it’s in now). I didn’t fully realize most of the current scene don’t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning.

    The real reason behind no release isn’t technical. It’s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.

    Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake

    Geohot has also now shut down his Twitter account which has 113,761 followers. Visiting the account now says, "This person has protected their tweets" and no past tweets are viewable to the public.

    Here are his last messages:

    was just having fun but some people had to take this all way too seriously. it's just a phone, and it isn't much fun anymore.

    my bio isn't "iPhone hacker" it was just something i did occasionally when i was bored. seriously, i think many of you care way more than me

    it was a cool ride, and i've learned a lot about a lot. perhaps one of these days i'll do a more formal goodbye.

    The fact that this is a big deal means he did the right thing. >.<
