    Yeah he seems to have quit the scene. Maybe he will be back sometime in the future, like planetbeing's long sabbatical.

    Time to reflect on how much he has contributed to the scene (let's not forget he setup theiphonewiki in addition to finding and developing all those exploits).

    Personally I have always preferred the devteam product but I know that many have managed to get more out of their iPhone or iPod touch via geohots tools.

    Yep, I agree. Dev-team's software has always been more thorough than GeoHot's solutions were and have always maintained the low-level jailbreak necessity, but that doesn't take anything away from the fact that Geohot has contributed largely to the scene with blackra1n and blacksn0w. I've always felt that Geohot was the little scrapper, the underdog of the jailbreak community -- his software may not be as polished, it may not do the 110% that Pwnage does, but it always worked, and in several cases, it was the first JB for 'current' (at the time) models. For that he deserves a definite bit of all of our respect, as that's not a small undertaking!

    As with any scene loss, it's always a hard day -- the scene will be losing an extremely talented and intelligent member, and in GeoHot's case, the scene is losing someone with a lot of very specific information that is not easy to come by, not easy to duplicate, and difficult to learn from the ground up.

    Glad he did what he did, but I can appreciate that he's probably extremely tired of the same questions, all the time.

    I couldn't agree more with you guys Geohot is and always will be a big part of the iphone scene.

    I wouldn't imagine this is the last will see of him, Im sure when the exploits start to run dry he'll be back again.

    I used to love the challenge of doing the 2G hardware-unlocks, worrying but fun times.

    Proof positive it's time for the thread to close. Nothing more constructive to be said here.

    (Can it be called fake if he never truly announced it himself and it does exist, just isn't released? I digress.)

    I agree with all of you guys.
    Geohot is an incredible talented hacker and he is much respected by others.
    I hope Geohot will come back one day.
    In the mean time, we respect his decision and his privacy.
