  • limera1n - new from geohot


    geohot's next jailbreak tool will most likely be called limera1n. He's been showing proof of blackra1n working on iPhone OS 4.0, as well as a jailbroken iPad. Well, limera1n.com has now popped up with nothing on it but a limey version of the blackra1n icon.

    Looks like geohot picked up limera1n.com March 27th, according to the whois. Checking the whois shows the registrant info to be the same for both blackra1n.com and limera1n.com, albeit with a different phone number.

    edit: ok, ok, address removed due to excessive comments, although it's public info and I'm sure if there's anyone who is well aware that info is public and doesn't care if its shared, its George Hotz.

    geohot has mentioned the latest approach he's working on would work on all devices (whether or not he decides to package that in the GUI is another matter of course) - and the release of a new name certainly lends the thought there's more than a simple update to blackrain. We'll ask for the full details next time we see geohot and see what he's willing to tell - an iPad/iPhone/iPod touch jb tool all wrapped up behind a shiny green icon would be nice.

    EDIT: As far as the new name... geohot even mocks himself a little on that one. Viewing the source of the page at limera1n.com shows the following comment:
    thanks, shahpriyankd, for the tip

      Sounds very interesting, I believe it's gonna be a war between Jailbreakers and Apple very soon. I just left the AT&T store, guy told me Apple along with the FCC are going to start random sweeps of iPhones. To determine if a jailbreak is being used.

      To what end? Jailbreaking is completely legal. So they know I have a jailbroken phone? AT&T already knows because I don't hide it and I have jailbroken AT&T employees iPhones before as well. They just want their monthly plan payments and they are happy.

      Totally not sure, this guy preached at me for a good ten minutes. Saying that the FCC has teamed up with Apple. It's a new process that there going to try, basically trying to limit the hacking of the device. You have to remember this guy is just a pawn, so it's hard to say what's 100% true.

      Okay, now we've got to retrive this thread. Geohot(?) posted an update/hidden picture showing more or less the whole iDevice family pwn'd. It could also be just a simple picture to fool us, instead of the actual boot logo or whatever it's supposed to show. So I'm not really sure, personally..

      What do you guys think?

      If his ego gets fed, that is cool, because 95% of the people who will be using lime rain will NOT be feeding him. Just treating him like a neighbor with a cool toy. Use it a few times, and go away. He is not in this for the money, remember?
      He is a far cry better than you!
      If you are better, DO better.
      If not, shut up.

      I hope this feeds his ego, the more we feed it the mote he will be hungry for more and continue to do great things o. Which we all benefit from and its FREE. So for all the people talking sh!t, y'all need to stop because the dev team and gehot do this for the love and don't really make any money from it so appreciate what they do.

      So will this be tethered or not that is the question???????
