not to surprised by this. as we still wait on a jailbreak. i seen this somewhere else


"Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I won’t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(I’ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place it’s in now). I didn’t fully realize most of the current scene don’t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning.

The real reason behind no release isn’t technical. It’s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd.
Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake"

No great suprise, and the majority is his own fault. He wanted internet fame, got it then didnt like it because people were hammering him. Musclenerd and the rest will pick up the reins, and George will go to uni or something. Personally I think he has been paid off, and is more into doing seminars and stuff now. Check out his seminar on the PS3 in france, its quite technical, but still good.
