GeoHot is in the spotlight again! The jailbreak genius has posted a new post on his blog showing a jailbreaked iPhone 4 running Cydia. He already showed us the ground work he has done for jailbreaking iOS 4. GeoHot in his recent article also confirmed that limera1n and pwned4life are not his tools/softwares, these are just some arbitrary names given by bloggers to his efforts.
Here is an excerpt from GeoHot's recent blog post:
As far as a release goes, it probably won’t happen from me. limera1n is little more than a raindrop on a website; it was never mentioned by me previous to this post. pwned4life is a complete invention of some blogger in a basement somewhere. When I said pwned for life, I was referring to the original iPhone, 3G, and Touch; which of course are, by the aptly named PwnageTool.
GeoHot didn't mention any release date of tool, he also explicitly requested not to ask him for tool release. Whenever the tool is ready, it will be made public. In the mean, Comex's Spirit jailbreak tool for iPhone 4 is expected to be released after next firmware "iOS 4.1" update from Apple. GeoHot and Dev-Team have already commended Comex's efforts.
