Geohot jailbreaks friend from Cook County Jail

In a bizarre turn of events, George Francis Hotz (aka Geohot) has used sophisticated technological means to break one of his friends from the USA’s largest prison.

Red faced officials from Cook County Jail had commented that their choice of iOS4.2 as the operating system for the prison security system “may not have been the best choice”, but that they “really, really liked the touch screen interface.”

In typical Geohot showmanship, jail officials were left with a locked screen showing images of falling rain, whilst he escaped in a Nissan 350Z and has not been seen since.
