    NO...

    it means that 70% of replies george gets anre about people that want/request an untethered jailbreak

    lets be realistic
    as far as i know i think that either the chronic devteam or the dev team already find a hole in the new bootroom, in other words they can do an untethered jailbreak

    BUT THEY JUST CANT release it to the public yet, so apple will patch, i mean the new iphone its just a few months away and so does the new ipod touch, lets don't forget the islate ( dont flame me on this i dont know about the relations on the islate software/hardwre with the iphone)

    It means he's blocking all communication with twitter on his system. It blocks all calls/responses to that host name.

    Wait, I could be wrong.

    EDIT AGAIN: No read up a little again (dodgy memory

    It doesn't literally "block" requests (though that is the idea). 127.0.0.1 (localhost) is /your/ computer, so all outgoing requests to hostname twitter.com will be sent to localhost, which won't handle them.

    In short, its a geeky way of saying gtfo.

    EDIT: if you're on a *NIX system (Mac, too), it's as easy as editing /etc/hosts

    This is quite the opposite of releasing an untethered.

    Setting twitter to localhost = not wanting anything to do with it.

    We are not getting untethered until Greenpoison.
