Windows 7 watch out for Geohot

George Francis Hotz, a.k.a Geohot, has been in the news for all that hacking reasons. He had worked of unlocking the iPhone to help people use other carriers, much to Apple’s dislike. Additionally, he has also been sued by Sony for hacking the Playstation 3. If reports are to be believed, the next on his hit list is the Windows Phone 7.

Sony has given a lot of grief to Geohot since he jailbroked the Sony PS4 to run unsigned code. Microsoft, on the other hand, has been trying to get in touch with Geohot and has even tried to help him out financially through his legal battle. Geohot will now try to jailbreak Windows Phone 7.

Microsoft had initially hoped for Geohot to help Microsoft build the Windows Phone 7. However, since that didn’t come through he will now be hacking it instead with Microsoft by his side. If he succeeds, it will definitely help him fund his ongoing legal battle.

Though it may seem that all is great in the Geohot-Microsoft relationship, it is almost impossible to forget the fact that Microsoft’s approach to Geohot is because of him hacking their biggest rival, Apple’s products.  The common Apple hate is what brought this duo together in the first place.
