    Think this has already been discussed.

    Geohot has left the scene, however he seems to have handed over the work he had done in getting a jailbreak working for 4.x to Mike Cohen. This is why Mike Cohen is now teasing a new *ra1n jailbreak.

    Reality is that comex is currently polishing up Spirit2 (or whatever it will be called) that will jailbreak 4.0 (and maybe 4.0.1) - so if Mike Cohen has any smarts he should wait for 4.1 to be released before using his exploit.

    After comex's new JB, he has no more exploits that can be used for another JB - so unless he finds some more, don't expect any more userland JBs from comex.

    At least one of the exploits discovered by Geohot were also independently discovered by ChronicDev Team and the iPhone Dev team. So unless geohot had more than one exploit remaining - it is quite possible that another team will release a JB using the same exploit before Mike Cohen can make it ra1n.

    This would be a similar situation to 3.1.x where redsn0w, pwnagetool and blackra1n all used the same exploit to JB 3GS and 3rd gen iPod touch.
