iPhone 4 jailbreak: Hacker cracks it

Broken but no release planned

Geohot does the business, but for his own amusement, not yours.

Got an iPhone 4? Gagging to invalidate its warranty with a cheeky jailbreak? Well renowned hacker Geohot has the answer. He’s cracked open Apple’s new blower, proving that all-new blower can be compromised.

There’s only one small snag. The man himself says he’s not releasing it. In a blog post titled, “Meh,” he says, “As far as a release goes, it probably won’t happen from me.”
