    From notcom's twitter:

    geohot will release a JB if he goes a week without an email or a twitter about releasing. RT

    He promised he'd do it too lol

    Notcom is the guy that made firmware umbrella to back up your shsh's. Not sure if this is real but worth a try.

    Sounds like something Geohot would do.

    But seriously, leave him alone, guys. I'd get pissed too if someone was emailing me 24/7 about a jailbreak.

    Geohot is a douche. He's an arrogant twerp who thinks he's a god for releasing Blackrain. Personally, I can't stand him or his tweets. If he doesn't want to release a jailbreak, then he should just tell everyone he's not going to. But instead he acts like a jealous 5-year old who has power over other kids because of a new toy.

    I'll wait for Comex, thanks.

    Hes pretty much asking something impossible. Someone is going to ask him. And he will probably release the jailbreak anyway...

    He has the right to when he's getting spammed with so much email from impatient people who not only bother asking but demand the jailbreak like if he owes them anything. I mean come on, he's only human. Lay off his back...everyone gloats and wants to feel superior...it's human nature

    Actually, Geohot stated in his twitter that he has no plans for a jailbreak.


    "In Berlin where there are no Apple stores. USA in world cup! No plans for new jailbreak. Stop asking."

    Before you dis him, look at everything he's done for the iPhone community.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again.

    Does he need to learn that there are others who are equally as talented, and could've done what he did? Yes. Is he talented? Yes.

    Either way, it isn't worth arguing over. Keep it civil.

    Definitely not everyone since I have never emailed him and couldn't care less about him.

    I don't email him or anyone because if he had news he would post it on twitter, and I'm lazy and I hate being a pain in the butt about it. I think he's doing a good thing holding onto it. What needs to happen I think is a userland jailbreak first, apple can't patch that until the next firmware, then when all the second batch of iPhone 4 comes out the bootrom jailbreak so apple can't patch it before more then halve of the other users get the iPhone and ate stuck with a identical situation to the new 3GS new bootrom issue. I do think that there could be possibly a better reason for the non release such as one I gave instead of his "no plans" thing. I'm not saying he has to give it to us, he can keep it forever, but he will never get the full advantage to jailbreak because the developers will never get to develop for the ios 4, so it wouldn't be much of a point of a jailbreak.
