Geohot has released the date (Nov. 4, 2009) for his new iPhone baseband unlock that we showed you here. Well now he’s asking for something in return. He’s asking for your help, to spread the word on the scammers out there, preying on the uninformed. He is asking for you to let everyone know, the Jailbreak software that he and the Dev-Team make (Blackra1n and PwnageTool) is free. That the unlocks are free.
First off, Jody Sanders, I am declining your $10,000. Why? Because you, and the rest of the iPhone unlock sites out there are scum. You make money selling freeware; that’s not cool, and I am in no way going to legitimize it.
Seriously, the people who really lose here are the customers. These sites are full of blatant lies, claiming to have unlocks for 05.11.07 People buy them, and are told the unlock is in development, and the release date is unknown. Imagine you bought a cup of coffee and were told it’s in development? Recently, many of these sites sent out e-mails saying they made major breakthroughs and the unlock will be ready 11/04/09. Coincidence that that’s the release date of blacksn0w?
They do this to help this community, so do your part, spread the word. Return the favor to the community. And send thanks to those that deserve it. Thanks Geohot and the Dev-Team, Chronic Dev, and iH8sn0w for the latenights and the hard work.
