It seems Geohot has become pre-occupied in some sort of contest/competition with SHA1 hash functions to win $20,000 or something.

Anyway, he tweeted this today:

Geohot's Twitter said:
once someone solves my 3 terahash problem, maybe i'll have some time to solve your tethered jailbreak problem, until then stop asking
So, that kind of sucks. I can't dig anything up on the Dev Team doing anything. Seriously though, what the hell have they been doing? I haven't seen anything from them except custom firmwares. These hackers give absolutely zero feedback on progress, etc. and it's kind of annoying. I'm not taking anything they do for granted but come on guys!

Sounds similar to a question I asked a while back and received condescending remarks from you.

I'm just reporting the news here. If you have nothing to contribute, please don't bother responding to this thread. I've learned from my mistakes, and I had apologized a long time ago. Please stop beating a dead horse.

He isn't fixing anything. He is too obsessed with his ego to help others first.

I hope someone comes through. The tethered jailbreak sucks. I don't have to do it but I wouldn't bother if that was the only way I could jb.

Why doesn't he just sell his jailbreak if he's so hard up for money? Is he going to play these games for cash every time Apple breaks an exploit?

The guy is going to be rich anyways. He's just being an immature brat right now. His tweets annoy me.

The iPhone 3G's that were produced from week 40 of this year forward have an updated iBoot (bootrom) which breaks the 24kpwn exploit that is used for jailbreaking. So, essentially, the jailbreak will work on week 40's or later; however, should you run out of battery or need to reboot, you need to connect your iPhone to your computer and use blackra1n to boot the iPhone back up. It does not re-jailbreak the iPhone, just boots it back up for you (or you're stuck in DFU mode).

Its a PITA thats what it is. Apple either need to hire serious hackers to stop jailbreaking altogether or just let us get on with it.

Its like we are being caught in a chess game between the two sides and its frustrating!
