Geohot has managed an iPhone OS 4.0 Beta jailbreak as well!



Seems like George Hotz is on fire. Just two days ago he showed the world that has an iPad jailbreak by claiming I make it ra1n on them…iPads. Today, he shared a picture on Twitter showing iPhone OS 4.0 Beta with blackra1n and Cydia, claiming that he got this one too.orcqp

Today, P0sixninja, who has been working on greenpois0n, said that there are three exploits available in the community amongst different jailbreakers i.e. the iPhone Dev Team, Geohot ( he has two exploits, one of which is the same as the one by Chronic Dev team) and the third one is Spirit Userland jailbreak by Comex. Also, Geohotz seems to have the best exploit available, which should be out by the end of this month, although he hasn’t announced this himself.


iPhone 4.0 was reveled by Apple 4 days ago. The build has even leaked in the wild, but there isn’t a jailbreak or unlock available for it yet. From the looks of it, George Hotz might be the one to get a jailbreak, or perhaps even an unlock, out of the door first.

It’s all but a waiting game now.

    This is all great in the idea form, but it would be IDOTIC to release these holes to Apple before they get 4.0 in public, or to 4.0.1. Why waste a hole on a beta firmware?

    It’s the same as 3.1.3 – everyone whined for a hole it it also. There is some, but nobody is wasting a hole on 3.1.3 without 4.0 public being released.

    If I was DevTeam, Geohot and others – I wouldn’t let these cats out of the bag until 4.0 public, at the LEAST – and I would probably hold until 4.0.1 or something. Apple’s release will still suck until they patch some holes – so helping out a bunch of zealous nerds when they can’t find a hole, doesn’t help the majority.
