Geohot Is Back: Famous Hacker Will Root Android Smartphones [Galaxy S5]

Hacker George Hotz who is better known as Geohot in the iOS jailbreaking community is back to work. His plans don’t mention iPhone iOS 8 jailbreak, sadly, but he is going to create hacks for other gadgets. According to Geohot, he will work with Android smartphones and has plans to root Galaxy S5.

Hacker Geohot to Root Galaxy S5

Well-known hacker George Hotz is going to work on hacks again, he is planning to release Galaxy S5 root hack.

There are not so many Galaxy S5 hacks as hacks and tweaks for the iDevices. It’s not because of high Apple popularity. Users who have Galaxy devices should be glad as Geohot is a good hacker. He is the person who stands behind Blacksn0w jailbreak for the iOS smartphones and Blackra1n program for the same devices.

We haven’t heard from Geohot for a long while. This whole time the scene was ruled by the Evad3rs who created iOS 7 untethered jailbreak and iH8sn0w who released p0sixspwn tool for untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. Geohot has decided to make a pause with iOS development and pay attention to Nexus 5, Note 3 and Galaxy S5. He might also work with other Android kernels using the “towel root” exploit he discovered.

Geohot Galaxy S5 root should be public. He is going to release to this June. This is an interesting event as Samsung gadgets are hard to root. Note that you will root your smartphone at your own risk. Once you root your Samsung gadget you will be able to use different carriers SIMs however there will be no way back.
