With nothing more than tweets to let the world know what’s going on, the iPhone 4 has just officially been unlocked by @planetbeing. He also used the next userland jailbreak by @comex to jailbreak his iPhone 4. All of this stuff is happening a lot faster than usual, so the release is getting closer.
Congrats to @comex for another userland JB http://is.gd/d5N6I <– hi-res Cydia via @planetbeing & @chpwn iPhone4s

With all of this jailbreak news, it should be release anytime between now and the middle of August.

Here’s another tweet of his showing Cydia on his iPhone 4:
Doh, Cydia was on the first page of apps! Here’s another shot with it open. http://twitpic.com/24yhf7
So, with all of this jailbreak and unlocking news going on, it sounds like @geohot is quitting the scene, according to his abnormal barrage of tweets last night: It turns out he removed his account, so we can’t post his tweets. He ended up closing his blog to the public, where only certain people can be invited to it. Maybe he has something big planned? Maybe he really is quitting? Who knows, but it seems like the iPhone Dev team, along with @comex, @planetbeing, and @chpwn are getting it done.
