  • 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.

You used to collaborate! START DOING IT AGAIN GAAAA!
      Chronic dev team is not releasing shatter now, they are incorporating geohots exploit into greenpoison so nothing will be wasted.

      Did you back it up with Cydia?

      *EDIT*
      Your best bet is to download TinyUmbrella and use it to back up your SHSH AND Baseband.

      *EDIT AGAIN (lol)*
      I noticed you said tu, I didn't notice you meant tinyumbrella so you're good.

      Lol SHAtter is an exploit not a jb, put it like this
      Greenpoison was gna use shatter, limera1n was gna use exploit X (it has no name)..
      Because Geo released limera1n early using xploit X the dev team are now changing greenpoison to use xploit X rather than SHAtter

      So what is the overall consensus? Does this work well enough to JB an iPhone 4 with 4.1 installed?

      Maybe ModMyI should take a poll?

      You're mad if you take half of the internet seriously. I personally blame fatalONEty for ruining it for everyone.

      I think geohot secretly works for Apple. Disappearing and return was such a "publicity stunt" lol.

      Who knows, maybe we'll soon see jailbreaks being left in bars "accidentally" and sold to gizmodo etc for $5000, before being raided by police...

      Oh and thanks for limerain

      No luck with my iPod touch 3G but my iPhone 4 jailbroke the first try.

      I do not feel like trying to figure out why my iPod wont jailbreak so I will wait.
