  • 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.

    blackra1n.com

    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:

      I've heard that the dev team is now gonna change their exploit to use the same thing as limera1n so that they don't burn two exploits

      What a load of bs, there is no way they will do that, one obvious reason is they wouldn't have it done in the next couple of days which means limera1n would come out 1st, and if they both used the same xploit no one would use greenpoison as there would be no point waiting when LR does the same thing

      No this had been said

      chronicdevteam Note: greenpois0n will be released as planned. if someone decides to burn a different perfectly good exploit, that is entirely on them.
      about 15 hours ago

      Meaning they arent bothered if someone else "burns" another exploit, they're gna release as scheduled..
      Unless I missed summin?

      We are not changing our release date. If we can implement @geohots before 10/10 we will use that, otherwise we're using ours. #roadblocks

      Without George, the jailbreak wouldn't come this far.

      Dear Moderators:
      can we merge "limera1n new from Geohot" and Limera1n available for download?
      both seem to have the same conversations going on.

      I've installed limera1n on my iPhone 4 a few hours ago, I had version 4.0.2 on it. Everything was running perfect, cydia and al the god stuff. Then I upgraded my phone to version 4.1 via iTunes and my phone doesn't work anymore...I have one signal bar, but it can't connect to AT&T anymore. I've tried to restore it with iTunes, but I get an error (1004 I guess). Any ideas?

      Found the solution: I've restored my phone with the newest iTunes version

      Hey guys i got a question that i tried to get answered on many places and no one ever answer at all, if its impossible i have never been told either...

      I have an iphone 3Gs, version 4.0.1 jailbreak with JailbreakMe, and i would like to update to 4.1 with LimeRa1n but last time, when i updated from 3.1.3 to 4.0.1, i lost everything.
      My iphone is highly custom, from the theme to the color of the status bar and the carier name, everything is custom else than the keyboard because i could never get one to work even with tutorials, it just never changed... anyway... Is it possible to update and jailbreak without loosing everything?

      Thanks ~blanco

      Updating will wipe all your themes and jailbreak apps away. There are a few backup programs in cydia that can reload these after you do but I ma not sure which is the best one and there is no guarantee everything you had running on 4.0.1 has been updated to work with 4.1 yet.

      Could you recomand one or a few of them i will see as long as it gets back a few things i will manage the rest its just that its depressing to mave my iphone back to retail-like and to do it all. Even if only 50% work its still a lot of work that will be spared
