  • limera1n 10/11/10 jailbreaks all devices?


    Alright, I chatted with geohot earlier today but was sworn to secrecy - although it seems the news made its way out anyway, so geohot said go ahead and cover it here.

    geohot is prepped to launch limera1n (we covered the possibility of such a software months ago) on 10/11/10 - the 1 year anniversary of the release of blackra1n.



    p0sixninja, who's work on SHAtter has been vital in making it happen, has already set an ETA of 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM for greenpois0n, his jailbreak for all A4 devices (iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod Touch 4G). geohot now has returned from "retirement" and announced a release the day after greenpois0n's slated release date - with a jailbreak that would work on /all/ iDevices.

    The two jailbreaks use separate exploits, although greenpois0n uses a new one, SHAtter, while geohot has used the exploit in limera1n before (and yah, it still works). geohot hasn't made an official announcement anywhere, so there's still the off chance someone will randomly talk him out of releasing, but it's looking pretty solid. There is some talk of p0sixninja even using geohot's exploit in greenpois0n, saving SHAtter for a future jailbreak, but it doesn't look like p0sixninja is interested in it, as it'd push back release dates even more.

    So... either way, looks like all you folks out there waiting for Game Center, AirSharing, AND Cydia... you'll get your cake (pie) come Sunday and Monday. And apparently you'll need a big plate.

      While I do understand the concepts of jailbreaking and unlocking, it is still not clear to me whether or not Greenpois0n will allow 'upgrading' to 4.1 on a device that is currently running 4.01 and has been jailbroken and unlocked with UltraSn0w?
      Can someone shed on light on this please?

      Yes I do know this... And it is a Pitty but with creating something new there will be MANY exploits for it... People just have to have the determination to find them! And if there was a CONFIRMED ip 5. Jailbreak... Would you guys still be so pissy? There is no need to start calling people names or fighting and no... I'm not a pacifist!

      Ugh typical geo bringing the drama. From a pragmatic standpoint it makes sense just to release limera1n or implement geo's exploit in GP as it a) supports everything in need of support and b) would be a shame to burn two bootrom exploits at once. However even if limera1n was the only JB released and SHAtter was saved for 5th gen devices it would be tethered at that point as both LR & GP use the same userland exploit to untether which will inevitably be patched in firmware.

      While I have used geo's software and respect his work I do agree with others that this is seriously a douchebag move. He's had limera1n for a while now and has been aware of GP. He intentionally decided to wait for an ETA from chronic dev to announce. If he /really/ cared about the community, instead of his own ego he would have either just released as soon as SHAttered was announced(or before) or he would have contacted the other dev teams and collaborated. Seems even as time passes he's still yet to learn how to be a team player. It will be really unfortunate if two exploits get burnt in one week. I feel really bad for the guys over at chronic and iPhone dev as they have obviously put /alot/ of hard work into this and basically got the preverbal middle finger from geo. What will happen though is both exploits will be released, patched in future hardware, more likely than not tethered in 4.2 and geo will blame chronic for releasing SHAtter when there is nothing to use on 5th gens. He will claim he asked chronic dev to use his exploit(which he did) in GP but if they did it would most certainly push back their release date allowing limera1n to release first and in the end making GP irrelevant and will give geo time to find SHAtter and implement it himself for 5G's. A real douche move backing chronic and iPhone dev into a corner like that IMHO.

      IDK either way it will be good for the community in the short term and either way it will stroke the kids ego.

      I know for sure you will be able to jailbreak using GP, since it is only for 4.1, but as for unlocking, if you use TU to preserve your baseband before you upgrade to 4.1, you should be able to use the ultrasnow to unlock. Correct me if im wrong anyone, I would like the correct information.

      I have a few 3gs that will love a little rain. As a few have said above, I think I will wait till the dust settles. I have 20 or so iPhones from people that pressed that upgrade button by mistake 4.02-4.1(The cat did it). Jailbreak for everyone!!! But, now the wait goes on for the updated ultrasn0w unlock. Welcome back Geo!! And thanks to all the iHackers and Dev teams out there.

      Well I am torn between two Jailbreaks...lol But I will choose GreenPoisi0n because it come out tomorrow where as Limera1n is monday. I have a iPhone 4 16gb that came with 4.0.2 so you know how much I need a JB.

      What a douche! Such a little drama queen...but hey, I guess I shouldn't complain if he wants to release an additional exploit... Its just the way he does things; what a *****!

      LimeRa1n WILL work with all of the A4 and A3 devices so it It is a more universal jailbreak...

      To all of you that own an iPhone 4: use greenpois0n... Take advantage of the stability(I hope) and useability of the jailbreak! And what about all of us who don't have an iPhone 4? We will use LimeRa1n as most devices come pre loaded with 4.1 or 4.x we can't downgrade to 3.1.2 to use sn0wbreeze, redsn0w or pawnage tool! so we are THANKFULL for LimeRa1n!

      Eitherway be THANKFUL that there are teams out there and people who do make jailbreaks! And I'm pretty dam sure that none of you can make a jailbreak either!
      You're absolutely right, bro.

      For the 3G, use Sn0wbreeeze 2.0.2 or RedSn0w 0.9.6. OUTSTANDING JB tools btw.

      Hello.

      Could you people tell me when will the pwnagetool come out?! I have an iPhone 3G fw 4.0.2 and haven't upgraded and jailbreaked to 4.1 because i wan't to preserve my baseband so i canstill be able to unlock it in the future if i want to do so. Will limera1n do the same as pwnage tool, for me? I know it won't be a customized ipsw, but will it preserve my baseband?

      Thank you.


      BTW, do you iPhone 3G owners, heve noticed any difference when upgrading to 4.1?
