Geohot Already has iOS Jailbreak Exploit Waiting for iPhone 5
It just goes to show that when iPhone jailbreak master, George Hotz, better known as Geohot, stepped back into the iPhone iOS jailbreak arena things tend to move along quite rapidly as evidence with Geohot’s LimeRa1n exploit.
Well things are apparently moving a whole lot faster now that Geohot is back as according to an article over on Product-reviews by Alan NG and by way of a report by Redmond Pie, the jailbreak master already has a new bootrom exploit waiting for the next iOS device meaning the iPhone 5 or perhaps the Verizon iPhone.
Apparently the rumour is this is why Geohot used Comex’s userland exploit for LimeRa1n and by implementing Comex’s exploit Geohot was able to save his new tool to work on future iOS devices.
Which means that as soon as a new Apple device hits it looks like Geohot will be right on the ball when it comes to delivering a jailbreak solution. Of course no doubt Apple will be aware of this and will be looking at way to block any attempt to jailbreak further iOS handsets.
One thing’s for sure though, you’ve got to hand it to George Hotz for being one clever guy and sticking in there with the jailbreak cat and mouse game with Apple.
