GeoHot: Jailbreak for 3.1 For All iPhones and iPod Touches Coming

Share:

It looks like GeoHot (also known as George Hotz) is at it again. He is one of the iPhone hackers out there that always seems to discover exploits and releases jailbreaking tools apart from the iPhone Dev Team.

This time around, in his recent blog post titled “Meet the Family”, he talks about the upcoming release of a jailbreak tool that will work for ALL iPhone and iPod Touches on 3.1 firmware. Here’s what he had to say:

no affiliation to greenpois0n. and it’s in some ways the complete opposite of purplera1n. but still 10 seconds. and may work for every version of software *ever*, based on the prettiness of the exploit

meetthefamily

iPhone, iPod Touch, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G

Wow. If this tool is for real, it will be able to jailbreak your device in 10 seconds and could work on every version of upcoming firmware forever! Hot diggity! This is some exciting stuff and props to GeoHot for his hard work.

Don’t forget the Windows version of PwnageTool, called sn0wbreeze, is coming October 12th as well. It’s a good time for all iPhone and iPod Touch users!

    can this jailbreak 3gs updated with 3.1 fw?..thanks

  • Dusty

    I don't think anyone can yet give you an answer since there is no release, Geohotz would be the best to ask this right now 😉
    I don't see why it wouldn't…. He did say *meet the program that will jailbreak them all.*
    The crappy thing for you would be to unlock your iPhone if you wanted to and you couldn't because you updated your BB when updating to 3.1FW.
    Keep checking the forums for updates… http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/forums/showthread….

    It's good to see Geohotz always stepping in and helping out! or as other words as the Devs say… Show off & now making them work harder! lol

    “could work on every version of upcoming firmware forever! “
    I doubt anyone saying something like “forever… absolutely… guarantee… blahblah…”

  • Dusty

    Not so good news…

    “OMG CHRONIC, WHY DID YOU POST THE EXPLOIT? SHIT LIKE THAT MAKES ME NOT WANT TO WORK ANYMORE”

    “posting that was the dumbest thing you could have done, never post exploit unless theres an implementation that uses it.”

    “i discovered that exploit first, and that was really a low blow to try and take credit. have fun with greenpois0n, i am not releasing”

    UPDATE:
    After pleading with Geo not to take it out on us., he agreed to release his tool in 2 days..

    geo:
    “eh, you're right, I shouldn't take it out on the end user. sorry, i'm pissed off in the morning. k fine, back to work. #2days”

  • I'm confused.

    This sounds bad.

  • Dusty

    Ya, sounds like in 2 days though GeoHot is still going to release his Jailbreak.
    You DON'T RELEASE THE EXPLOIT!!!

    So is this a jailbreak for those who resisted updating their iPhones to version 3.1 via iTunes and this is the “replacement” file for those phones or is this a jailbreak for the iPhones that have version 3.1 software installed on them right now and will have the ability to unlock those phones?
