When it comes to iPhone jailbreaks, coder Geohot is one of the best, with his Blackra1n software unlocking thousands of iPhones to date.

That's all likely to change, it seems, following a rather dispirited blog post simply titled "Meh".

While Geohot has confirmed that he has managed to jailbreak the new iPhone 4 and therefore presumably iOS 4, he isn't planning to release it any time soon for those keen to use their Apple phone with unauthorised apps or a different carrier.

"As far as a release goes, it probably won't happen from me...When I said pwned for life, I was referring to the original iPhone, 3G, and Touch; which of course are, by the aptly named PwnageTool."

If that doesn't sound downbeat, we don't know what is, and for those about to fire off an email to get him to change his mind, Geohot goes on to say:

"Please don't ask for release dates. Every person that does makes me want to release a little bit less".

Sad times.

Looks like, as Geohot recommends, those interested should switch their attentions to limera1n and pwned4life.

Has the bubble burst for the iPhone or has Geohot just got bored and moved on? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
