Geohot May Have An Untethered Jailbreak For iOS 4.2.1

George Hotz next jailbreak exploit

MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has revealed that Geohot, developer of popular tools to jailbreak and unlock iPhone like blackra1n, limera1n and blacksn0w may return to the iPhone jailbreaking scene with a untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1.

Few days back, we had speculated that the next jailbreak tool from Geohot may be called Rubyra1n based on the WhoIS record.

MuscleNerd tweeted:

MuscleNerd: @ipodguy79 I hear geohot does have an untether actually! Though not for all devices.

ipodguy79: @sherif_hashim @MuscleNerd @iphone_dev @chpwn keep up with your soap opera and geo will be slapping another reality check on you

You may remember that Geohot had returned to the iPhone jailbreaking scene by releasing limera1n for iOS 4.1. But since then he has again disappeared from the scene.

Do you think Geohot is going to surprise us again with an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1?
