Geohot releases untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices

Geohot releases untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices George "Geohot" Hotz has released the first RC of an untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices, dubbing the jailbreak Limera1n.
The jailbreak works on the iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3/4G, iPad, and iPhone 4.

For the time being the jailbreak works only on Windows machines.

The jailbreak is based on low-level bootrom exploits that are different than the current exploits used by SHAtter and in the newly released "greenpois0n."

Geohot uses the same exploit found by c0mex, the hacker behind the popular one-click Spirit jailbreak.

The jailbreak should be available at http://limera1n.com tomorrow.

He's an utter edited by ddp, yes.
There was supposed to be a jailbreak that jailbreaks all iDevices but for no reason at all, this guy jumps in the last minute and releases limera1n which apparently is very buggy and it doesn't even support the iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3G yet.
The other jailbreak, greenpois0n got delayed thanks to this arrogant edited by ddp.

I love all these people slamming him. i bet half you jerks can barely program a remote. Have you contributed anything to any of these exploits.... wait what is that? i think i heard crickets chirping. not that i claim to no the first thing about kernel hacking or advanced programing but were lucky any of these people release this stuff to us. people like you are why they leave the scene. ungrateful edited by ddp.

bugger off svn. actually some of us can and do. Geohot left alot of people hanging for no reason. anyways, his exploit was exploited from comex. who by the way actually put out the best and only one click windows solution to jailbreak the iphone earlier this year with their spirit jailbreak. i wouldnt be surprized if Geohot ripped it off of them!

Lol.
The untethered exploit is by Comex, not Geohotz.
And releasing Limera1n in this time period was an edited by ddp-ish move. What he basically did was make the whole jailbreaking scene a lot more inconvenient.

You obviously don't have a clue what you're talking about.
