Is Rubyra1n Geohot’s Next Jailbreak Tool?

Soon, we may be able to jailbreak our devices with a new tool from hacker / developer all-star George Hotz (a.k.a. Geohot) called Rubyra1n. As noted by Redmond Pie, the domain rubyra1n.com seems to be registered by George Hotz with the same credentials of blackra1n.com, another jailbreak tool Hotz released last year. The new rubyra1n, however, doesn’t share the same data with limera1n.com – an app released in October to jailbreak iOS 4.1.

Of course there is no confirmation Geohot is planning to use this domain for an upcoming jailbreak tool, but we wouldn’t be surprised at all to see him coming out with his own iOS 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak for all devices. In the meantime, check out the domain records below and let the speculation begin.
