    Let me tell you this, there's a GREAT reason geohot is burning this exploit. Here's why:

    The vulnerability for limera1n, doesn't exist in the newer devices iBoot.. What does this mean? The vulnerability doesn't exist in the bootrom either. Why? iBoot and bootrom are the same. He checked to see if he can exploit it in the newer devices, he couldn't. That's why he wishes to release the tool now and save SHAtter.. Reasonable right? Thought so.

    Shatter only works on 4th gen devices, that alone makes it more than reasonable to release limera1n.

    Why do you want to waste shatter? Geohot did the right thing because now we have a bootrom jailbreak for both 4th and 5th gen devices. The limera1n exploit is fixed in newer bootroms, so limera1n has to be used now or not at all. Shatter is completly unknown to apple so it makes sense to wait till the 5th gens to reveal the shattered exploit.

    Actually to be honest he saved SHAtter because that jailbreak is in apples A4 chip which is there claim to fame. Having and keeping a exploit in that chip will jailbreak idevices for years to come if we keep it under wraps and i believe this jailbroke 3rd gen and up not just 4th.
