Happy Hour for Jailbreaks Next Week?

LimeRa1n

It looks like we may see two new jailbreaks for the latest iOS devices next week. GreenPois0n is already set to be released tomorrow – and now it seems that Geohot may release his latest jailbreak, LimeRa1n, just one day later.

Our friend Sebastien at the iPhone Download Blog has the whole scoop on this. Once again, there is high drama in the jailbreak arena – as apparently Geohot’s jailbreak uses a different exploit (security hole) than GreenPois0n does. If that turns out to be the case, it’s not a popular decision among the jailbreak dev community – as it means two exploits are revealed to Apple at once, rather than saving at least one for use later when the first one is patched by Apple.

Without knowing much about the nature of the two exploits or the back story as as whole, I’m glad to hear Geohot may have a new JB ready for Monday, as I’ve always found his amongst the easiest to use. For the full scoop on all of this, check out Sebastien’s latest post here:
