Is a blackra1n update coming soon?
Hi all, my first post on these forums...
I just got a 32gb 3GS, and I'm all ready to jailbreak it, but I'm very reluctant to use blackra1n because of the tethered jailbreak.
My question is this: Does anyone know if an updated version is coming soon that will solve this tethered jailbreak problem, or should I just bite the bullet and make it rain?

Absolutely not. Geohot (the creator of blackra1n) is REFUSING to fix the "tethering issue", because according to his Twitter, he is sick and tired of the jailbreakers feeling entitled to all of these hacks, as if it's owed to them or something. He's gone on and on (and on and on an on and on) about how he has no plans to fix tethering any time soon. It may not even be until AFTER 4.0 is released, supposedly.
Sorry for the bad news.

I see geohots point to a degree, but he turns into a whiny brat as well on Twitter. I've been reluctant to jailbreak anyway, but his attitude doesn't help. If he doesn't want to hear all the complaints, change Twitter accts or something. Or heck just start charging for the hack, im sure people would pay for it gladly.

Now that is a solid disappointment... Well, here's hoping he either changes his mind and puts out an update, or someone else comes along and helps out... I don't really care if it's a complicated process or not; just so long as it gets the job done! This tethered jailbreak is not a pleasant feeling, especially when i go on vacation and am away from my computer for a week+...

It must be annoying for him. If you've had to have a tethered jailbreak...can't you just live with it?
I've jailbroken my phone and am happy with my tethered jailbreak, however once orange allow me unlock my iphone officially I will probably restore my 3Gs and use my vodafone sim legally (LOL).

Blackrain is a whiny biotch himself. Go cry about a few complaints you baby. I bet he's some 15 year old nerd who has nothing better to do than sit around and nerdify his iphone.
Good job Blackrain. Now its not just the complainers that hate you---its everyone.

Subnaiyo, it's nice to see that you have no idea what the hell you're talking about! Blackra1n is the program used to jailbreak. GeoHot or George Hotz is the guy who made Blackra1n. But one thing is kinda true. AFAIK George is about 17 years old.

If you keep Blackra1n easy to use I'll take you to a cool kids party.
He's a young adult and learning about the diminishing rewards of adoration that most adults understand very well. Just needs to tap into another form of satisfaction. Money works for me.

You people know that you can get the software to change the bootloader straight from Apple's site don't you? You can unlock it without jailbreaking it! I forget people want things just handed to them these days. Let Geohot #itch! Hey he gave to those that couldn't do it. I say he should fix the tether and charge for it!! I got to hand it to him for being one of the kids that's not gonna be stupid getting out of school! He fits the profile of a tech if he's #itching.

Hammer, what the hell are you talking about regarding changing the bootloaders?
This hadn't been spoken of on this forum (or others for that matter) to my knowledge. Do you have any proof of these claims?
Any links you could give us? I'm sorry, but in this case I'm trusting my skeptiscism.

I dont mind the tethered jailbreak except for the instances where the iphone is acting up and u have to turn the phone off, well lets say you are out and about, what are you supposed to do? thats my only gripe with it, and i would be willing to pay for him to fix the tethering thing. I dont take advantage of anyone, i dont feel a sense of entitlement. I happen to enjoy the cool themes with the JB but wouldnt want to stress about not being by a computer if my phone happens to turn off, needs to be restarted etc..

That being said, it's still in the back of my mind that I'm going to be off on vacation somewhere and my battery will die and i'll be stuck. But then i guess i can always carry a flash drive with blackra1n and itunes on it, right?
And then there's OS 4.0 on the horizon. Is GeoHot serious when he says he'll fix the tethering issue with 4.0?
