It was because Geohot had disabled alot of features inside the cfw I think the LV Peek and Poke if everyone remembered he said OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG dont patch lv2 lol that is why his cfw wasn't as big as the others that came behind of it. But at-least he had released a took kit so people can sign pkgs to the firmware. That's when some people found way to bypass his patch i think but I'm not 100% sure
