  • 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.

      also, anyone think it's weird that he released it on windows first? i might be mistaken, but i feel like with every other jailbreak he previously released, it was under os x first, then windows versions came after.

      Both have awesome icons. I might pick limera1n just to put the icons on my springboard. If shatters like spirit and others I won't get the awesome greenpoison logo. Haha

      1 issue found with limera1n rc2, don't know if it has anything to do with cydia, but in cydia the names of the apps(and versions) of apps are not showing when searching for an app and then clicking on it. The names arent showing next to the icon on the app page.

      Only problem I'm having on my iPhone 4 with 4.1 is that no matter how I run the Cydia install/Limera1n options, it doesn't remove the limera1n icon from my springboard. I can live with it for now though. Installed SBSettings and Winterboard so far no problems.

      So for those of us who have iPhone 4, should we wait for GP or what?

      Are you speaking in code?! If by "4" you mean iPhone 4 then you make no sense as all iPhone 4's have the same bootrom. The only phone that had old vs new bootrom is the 3GS.

      I don't think there is hope Green Poisi0n now

      MuscleNerd @p0sixninja burning a second bootrom exploit is not an option Think of the end users please.

      I would at least wait until Release client 3 or 4 lol.. Maybe then some of the reported wifi, Bluetooth and whatever other issues will be ironed out.

      Yeah, geohot forgot to add the delete button when you click on the red circle loool. I'll try to remove it via SSH later but right now im too busy installing cydia stuff lol.
