One of the most popular iPhone hackers, GeoHot, has finally ‘jailbroken’ his silence in front of entire iPhone community. The hacker has amazed everyone in recent years with some of the finest jailbreak and unlock tools, but he has no interest in continuing his work in the future.
In the last week, he had surprised iPhone jailbreakers with his new blogpost update, where he literally fooled everyone with a pseudo iPhone 4 jailbreak image. Now, he has something else in his mind, not related to iPhone hacking!
Today, he has made his blog available for privately invited readers only. That’s not just about it. He has also locked down his Twitter account and now only few people can follow his updates. Screenshots after the break.
The hacker has been blaming his fans since long time for asking several questions, but now he has taken the final decision to say goodbye to its fans and followers. Some of his recent tweets -
i was just having fun but some people had to take this all way too seriously. it’s just a phone, and it isn’t much fun anymore.
my bio isn’t “iPhone hacker” it was just something i did occasionally when i was bored. seriously, i think many of you care way more than me
it was a cool ride, and i’ve learned a lot about a lot. perhaps one of these days i’ll do a more formal goodbye.
There are millions of iPhone users are waiting for him to release a jailbreak or unlock tool for iOS 4, but now the hacker has left the community and his fans with no answers.
GeoHot is certainly not the first person on the earth to receive such popularity at early age. It’s just that he couldn’t handle the pressure of expectations from his fans. Someone else will replace his place in the future, but we will definitely miss his awesome tools.
What do you think? What could be the possible reason behind his
[Update: GeoHot has deleted his Twitter account.]
