Geohot untethered jailbreak for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad coming soon!

One of the most frustrating things with jailbreaking the latest generation of Apple devices (most iPhones 3GS, iPod Touches 2G and 3G) is the requirement to have it connected to PC/Mac and pressing the “Make it rain” button on each reboot. The extent of the issue is clearly shown by the recently reported project of making a special iDongle to avoid the dependency on a desktop computer. Unfortunately for @mrbreakit (the inventor of the iDongle) this may soon cease to be an issue.

Geohot has reported in his blog:

The jailbreak is all software based, and is as simple to use as blackra1n. It is completely untethered, works on all current tethered models(ipt2, 3gs, ipt3), and will probably work on iPad too.

To strengthen his claim he also published a Youtube video showing the solution in action.

It seems the free-minded community will soon be able to breath easier, especially if the solution works on the iPad as well (OMG, how I wish to see ZodTTD’s emulators running on the iPad!). And meanwhile remember:

Don’t ask about a release date. You won’t make it happen any sooner.
