Late last month, we discovered the Rubyra1n.com domain name registered by popular jailbreaker George Hotz. The domain name was registered on the same date as Limera1n and had the same WhoIs details as one of GeoHot’s other domains; Blackra1n.com.
Now what comes of Rubyra1n remains to be seen. But if we are to go by something that popular Dev Team jailbreaker Musclenerd has to say, we could be seeing an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 sometime soon. In a tweet posted on his account, the jailbreak developer has said,
“I hear geohot does have an untether actually! Though not for all devices.”
Does that mean we could be seeing a public release – similar to the Limera1n release – soon? All this is mere speculation at the moment since GeoHot is an independent hacker and so Musclenerd’s guess is only as good as ours. In any case, we would like to see if an untethered jailbreak from GeoHot is on the way.
