When you think of “smart phones” you tend to think of two things. Android and iPhone (at least in the US that is the school of thought) this is despite the fact that there are many other operating systems available.

The original iPhone Hacker George Hotz best known as Geohot has finally had enough of the pestering, spamming and general obnoxious behavior of the jailbreak “consumers”.
