Geohot, the iPhone hacking expert who had released popular tools to jailbreak and unlock iPhone like blackra1n, blacksn0w is back.has been out for months, but his return is surely going to please everyone, specially the 3rd-generation iPhone and iPod touch owners who were left out by SHAtter based GreenPois0n.has discovered a new new bootrom exploit, which he is calling limera1n.
P0sixninja of the Chronic Dev Team has confirmed the news:
p0sixninja: yes, the news about geohot is true, the day after we release ETA he decides he wants a piece of the #pie
p0sixninja: and yes it is a different bootrom exploit, he wants us to use it in GP, but there’s no way we’ll make our ETA if we do
chronicdevteam: Note greenpois0n will be released as planned. if someone decides to burn a different perfectly good exploit, that is entirely on them.
chronicdevteam: It is actually him.
chronicdevteam: because his different exploit can be saved for new iphone / ipad / ipod, AND 3G S, you’d just have to wait a little longer
cdevwill: [7:45pm] geohot: eh, i’ll just steal your exploit [7:45pm] geohot: and beat you to the release Sounds like a nice guy.
Meanwhile, Chronic Dev Team is planning to release greenpois0n on Sunday, October 10th.
P0sixninja has clarified that the new bootrom exploit discovered by Geohot is different from the SHAtter exploit that is being used in greenpois0n to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G, iPad and Apple TV (all devices running Apple’s A4 processor). It looks like Geohot’s exploit will work on all iDevices.
MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team now chips in to confirm Geohot’s return, and the all-iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool Limera1n
As dramatic as geohot’s last-minute all-device JB is, still a shame that two bootrom holes will be burned at once.
