Guess who’s back. The world famous teenage hacker to have found the first exploit for the iPhone, Geohot, is back with a jailbreak he terms “limera1n” for the iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G and iPad. This news has been confirmed by members of Chronic Dev Team on Twitter, to whom Geohot has confirmed his return with a complete new tool.Members of several dev teams don’t seem too happy with the return of Geohot, as they feel that he acts without reason releasing exploits early so Apple can patch them up in their next firmware update.
Here is what they had to say
chronicdevteam: Note greenpois0n will be released as planned. if someone decides to burn a different perfectly good exploit, that is entirely on them.
chronicdevteam: because his different exploit can be saved for new iphone / ipad / ipod, AND 3G S, you’d just have to wait a little longer
MuscleNerd : As dramatic as geohot’s last-minute all-device JB is, still a shame that two bootrom holes will be burned at once.
If Geohot is to be believed, we will have a jailbreak on the 11th of October 2010. Stay tuned for more info.
