  • 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.

      Will this work on 3GS? Greenpois0n was such a burn.

      I can't believe geo is back although it does make sense that he would try to out do the devteam. Besides the devteam has had a number of people working on their jailbreak and how many does geohot have like 3? I bet that limera1n is gonna b super buggy that's just my opinion

      Limera1n will most likely support ALL devices and will be a quick JB like Spirit and blackra1n and MAY get patched easily.
      So if I have an iPhone 4, whats the one to choose?

      Is it possible that geohot is getting paid by apple to release his jailbreak shortly after the chronic dev teams so they can patch both exploits. An that's the only way they could get the exploit from him because he wants the attention so he still wants to release a jailbreak?

      a'rite guys. shed some light on me who knows about this.

      shatter is a flaw in a4 chip which is used in ip4, ipt 4 and ipad. so as long these will be using these chips we will be able to jailbreak with shatter doesnt matter how many firmware gets released as firmwares cant overcome a chipset flaw. RIGHT or WRONG?

      limera1n is a bootrom flaw. so untiill a new bootrom is released we will be able to jailbreak with limera1n. RIGHT or WRONG?

      how long it takes to release a new bootrom?

      Funny thing is... Limera1n may /also/ work on 4.2 - who knows. Geohot may be full of himself, but it's kinda hard to think of someone with his talent at his age who wouldn't be.

      You're forgetting. Not everyone has an iPhone 4. Now what have you done to the community that gives you a right to diss a guy working for free?

      these r musclenerd's tweets.


      @aryajuanda both exploits will apply to 4.2 too, that's far too soon for Apple to fix the holes by then about 4 hours ago via web in reply to aryajuanda

      ----------------------------

      @x_rus_x yeah Apple will fix them both in same bootrom respin (it will actually save Apple money too!) about 4 hours ago via web in reply to x_rus_x

      ----------------------------

      @ebrahimosman they will fix bootrom holes for A4 devices just like they fixed 24Kpwn bootrom hole on iPhone3GS about 4 hours ago via web in reply to ebrahimosman
