Last day it was reported by Geohot that he was going to release a new jailbreak tool for the iPhone 4 soon and he also posted an image of an iPhone 4 running Cydia. To all the people’s surprise, who were eagerly waiting for a new jailbreaking and unlocking tool for the iPhone 4 from Geohot, Geohot himself have reported that he is saying Good Bye to the jailbreak world. This is what he says in his blog post :
Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I wonâ€™t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(Iâ€™ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place itâ€™s in now). I didnâ€™t fully realize most of the current scene donâ€™t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. Itâ€™s late tonight, Iâ€™ll think about what to do about this in the morning.
The real reason behind no release isnâ€™t technical. Itâ€™s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.
Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fakeÂ
He admits that the image of the iPhone 4 running Cydia was also fake. In his recent tweet he says :
He also reported through twitter that he is going to give a formal Good Bye to the Jailbreaking and unlocking world.
But there is something happy for the iPhone 4 users. The iPhone Dev Team have revealed that the iPhone 4 jailbreak is in its last stage and it will be possible soon. Stay tuned to Tips Needed for more updates regarding the iPhone 4 jailbreak and unlock.
