The spam bots are taking overhand. We will continue to clean it manually, but I suggest to add a Captcha to the new user signup process. That should be sufficient. But you might need to update mediawiki. See [http://code.google.com/apis/recaptcha/docs/mediawiki.html]. -- [[User:Http|http]] 11:35, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Future of this Wiki

geohot is the founder of this wiki. Now that he has retired (or whatever) I would be interested to know how this Wiki continues. I'm a little scared that he could just turn it off. Maybe we should make some backups now? Or can geohot or a close insider provide some infos about the future of this Wiki? If geohot needs someone to take over this project, I would be happy to do so (and probably many others also). It would be awful to see all our contributions fade away. A clear statement by any insider would help. Thanks. --http 18:58, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

I currently have no plans to shut down this wiki. Rest assured that if I do, I will make a backup available online. --geohot 19:17, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for clarification. This helps a lot. --http 22:39, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
The Sony case made me think of this again, especially when this wiki was down for a few hours. Perhaps you could give a backup to some trusted friend or so on a monthly or weekly basis? I would be happy to take the backups if you have no idea whom to give them - you have my email. -- http 11:35, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Access to blog archives

Will you post the information on your initial iPhone 2G unlock anywhere? This used to be on your blog (in the archives) and was quite fascinating... :( D235j 01:41, 14 July 2010 (UTC)


You made a rational decision leaving the jailbreak community. After all the crap you had to take from people I dont blame you. Im sorry for ever adding to the BS you deal with on a day-to-day basis. Leobruh 22:42, 13 July 2010 (UTC)!


Hey mate, do you have any plans to make your blog public again? There was a lot of good information on there and it would be an official source of information and updates from you! Best! =) LiNK 19:01, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, Please Open your Blog... Even if it doesnt have to do with jailbreaking or anything like that! I just want to know the real george hotz... LOLZ 9:53, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Geohot, Is It possible that you could invite me to your blog? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by Grisolp (talk). Please consult this page for more info on how to sign pages, and how to fix this.

About GUIs

Hi. What do you think about GUIs in this wiki.There are some programs which calls another program like iDecrypt(Calls VFDecrypt) iDecrypter(Calls VFDecypt) WinDecrypt(Calls VFDecrypt) Seas0npass(Calls XPwn). Should these programs have a wiki page? Isnt it considered as advertising their program using this wiki? --Whiteshinyapple 02:07, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Mine (iDecryptIt) calls VFDecrypt and Template:Wp --Balloonhead66 02:16, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Why are we discussing this on geohot's page? --Gamer765 04:24, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
The intial message was directed at geohot, inquiring about his thoughts on GUI apps on this wiki. He doesn't make his presence here known that often, though. --Dialexio 04:46, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
The Sysops here do such a good job I rarely have to step in. With regards to the GUI issue, it's not the most useful content on the wiki, but the idea of "advertising" a free program kind of seems like something not worth deleting over. Hard drive space is quite cheap. But then again, I'm not a dictator and perhaps this should be discussed somewhere besides my user page :P --geohot 04:56, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
