Conclusion: If we suppose that this is the real Geohot, so it looks like Geohot has the Limera1n untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 and 4.3, and the big surprise is that he may has the unlock ready for iPhone 4 on higher basebands with Limesn0w, anyway we can’t confirm if this is the real Geohot or not, I will keep you informed with any updates.
