  • 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.

      Good news for 3GS users I guess! Like a few have said here, I'll be using GreenPois0n. I think it will be more polished, no bugs etc since both teams have been working on it. I know GeoHot is a good jailbreaker, but I just don't think limera1n will be reliable as GreenPois0n (I figure chronicdevteam have tested it more etc.)

      Also I think GeoHotz should be asked to keep his exploit for the future, it doesn't seem fair him asking p0sixninja not to use SHAtter, considering all the good hype it is causing.

      Oh well, I guess everyone will be happy for a jailbreak

      Let's hope both dev team and geo come to one solution and only one of them release jailbreak....bec 4.2 is around the corner now..and we need jailbreak for 4.2 too..

      Actually, GreenPois0n will only do A4 devices, so Limera1n should be the winner here. But it's probably true GreenPois0n will be more polished.

      Haha, the Brett Favre of jailbreaking!! Lol.

      At least Favre plays with a team!! Geo hasn't learned how to do that yet!

      I knew he had something up his sleeve, but it's kinda a waste, save it for 4.2

      p0sixninja : 8:46 pm EST:
      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

      Don't expect anything from Geo remember LimeRa1n is since the 4.0 days and that exploit wasn't even thought of my Guess is that LimeRa1n is Unlock just like BlackRa1n and GreenPois0n is Pwnd4life.... That's just me but well see if I'm right or wrong come Saturday Nd Sunday

      it looks like geohot wants his part of credit in jail breaking...he came out just at right time when other dev team is going to get credit for their hard work...

      I think the reason he is releasing it is because Greenpois0n doesn't work on the 3GS and iPT3, and it's not a waste of a jailbreak cause SHAtter can't be sealed

      chronicdevteam :

      We are currently working the "situation" out. Don't worry, you'll still get the jailbreak in the end, nothing to be concerned about.

      First of all shame on any of you who complain about Geohot he has done some amazing things for all of us! Second, he doesn't charge anything for his time which if any of you knew anything would know that its very time-consuming. Third, you all sound like a bunch of high school girls (sorry girls) ********. Finally, I have had every version of iPhone since its first day of release, all being Jailbroken I would have to say the Geohot's breaks are some of the easiest breaks ever. While I understand that there have been a few quirks they have always been resolved quickly. So again if you gonna ***** or complain like a little girl, develop your own Jailbreak you selfish bastards. I bet half of you still live with your mamas, dont ya!

      Thanks for everything Geohot, I really appreciate everything you have done and If you feel good about yourself more power to ya brother!
