GeoHot Ditching iPhone 4 Jailbreak, iPhone Jailbreak and iPad Jailbreak

It was just a couple of days ago we told you that Geohot had managed to jailbreak his iPhone 4 on the day he got it. Sadly, he was in no mood to make the jailbreak public. Now, Geohot has updated his last blog post to say thatiphone4 he has taken a sort of temporary retirement from the iPhone jailbreak and unlocking scene.

Here is what the updated blog post says :

Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I won’t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(I’ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place it’s in now). I didn’t fully realize most of the current scene don’t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning.

The real reason behind no release isn’t technical. It’s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.
Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake

Quite a strange move from Geohot here. He was the first guy to unlock the original iPhone way back in 2007. Now the hope of all owners depends on Comex and iH8sn0w to release a jailbreak for the new iPhone 4.

    Oh my god. If anyone's selfish it's you, imagine if people were demanding things from you, all day everyday non stop, then when you finally give it to them they say it's crap and don't appreciate it at all, imagine how you feel. I was looking forward to the untethered jailbreak from Geohot, cause I have a 3GS with new bootroom but I see and understand where he's coming from and support his decision entirely. You just need to be slapped a couple times.

    Wow!!! I have 2 say that geohots decision is quite imature… I mean, do u expect people to not ask when the release date is??? And u'd think geohot would have worked harder 2 release an iPhone 4 unteathered jailbreak after spirit smashed blackra1n!!! U'll be missed geohot, but wit that attitude, not that much…
