  • 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.

      Geohot's exploit is the one to use. It's likely untethered & it covers all devices. CDT should hold off to implement it instead of sHattter as that is a tethered JB that needs a userland exploit to be untethered. Implement Geohot's exploit into GP & Pwnagetool so that all devices can be jailbroken.

      Those who would complain about a delay to GP are not worth the waste of an exploit. I swear I don't understand all this competition about who's exploit is better, it's crazy. I'm thankful for Geohot's contribution whatever his intentions are, it never hurts to have another mind working on jailbreaks.

      This is exactly why Geohot disappeared, he was tired of so many people acting like a spoiled child, demanding things that he did in his spare time on a donation only basis. This post is full of people ragging on Geohot & I just don't get it, more options are always a good thing, but I still state they should delay GP & use Geo's exploit since it is supposedly a low level bootrom exploit that will be untethered.

      Of course that just my opinion.

      I don't agree, for a start this will jb all devices which is something a lot of people are looking for, also he's releasing the day after, meaning most people will be poisoned by the green variety lol
      I will be using greenpoison on Sunday, only to restore Sunday night ready for limera1n... I have to admit I'm a massive Geo fan, since the first time he hacked an iPhone, using a hardware exploit rather than software...
      Anyway I don't think he's stealing the thunder, maybe if greenpoison jbed all devices, and Geo was offering the same thing, but it's not like that so I don't agree

      All iDevice owners, you have a collect call from an inmate at the Rikers Island jail. Inmate say your name... "Lil Wayne". Do you accept the charges? If so, press 1..... Call accepted.

      [Lil Wayne]
      Yeah He's in this ***** with a terror, better hurry up and grab that TinyUmbrella, Geo makes it rain (he makes it rain), he's in this ***** with a terror, better hurry up and grab that TinyUmbrella.

      Sorry!! Couldn't help myself.

      Hello let me break it down for everyone. Both exploits are bootrom exploits ie they can't be repaired by firmware updates. That doesn't male it complete....what makes it complete is if it tethered or unthered...both bootrom exploits r tethered but thanks to comex ...they became unthethered. Green poison supports hacktivation which is really good but it only supports a4 devices because the exploi is on a4 chip. Goehot's exploit supporting hacktivation hasn't been confirmed anywhere but am sure with the next coming releases he will make it do that. When 4.2 firmwares comes out,it will patch the useland exploit they r usingto make it unthethered or tethered but it won't patch the bootrom exploit ie path followed when injecting all the payloads files....it will kinda make it easy to jailbreak becasue people will just have to look for username entry point without being worried aboutpoint of entry of the payloads. The bad news is that you update your device...chances of getting it unlocked are minimal because I have checked his blog and hasn't said a thing about that. So those people like us depending on ultrasnow will have to wait or depend incase snowbreeze comes out with. Way if using the 4.1 bootrom exploit to allow a customised firmware...but all in all this is good news. Both parties are working together inna weird way but that means people r going to bring out more. What bothers me is why comex always finds the untethered bit of it....such a genius...when 4.2 comes out we will have to wait for not so long time before an exploi comes out...what hurts is the the unlock hasn't been confirmed........

      I've always ONLY used stuff from the DevTeam as their work is never rushed, and always properly thought through. Besides they are humble and professional in their dealings with the community.

      Not to take anything away from George, (his previous releases helped those it did and messed up those it) but seriously, he can keep his lime (I certainly won't be using it...if he comes out of his "retirement" and joins forces with the DevTeam, then I'll have no choice)!

      I don't think either Geohot or p0sixninja deserve the negative commentary they are getting here remember they are releasing it for free out of their own free will. I don't think it is a competition its just 2 guys working their brains off delivering two alternatives to free your iphone. For those who thing it is wrong to expose 2 exploits simultaneously I don't think you should worry. At each stage of the iOS development holes were found and the fact that some iphones are sold contract-less mean that somewhere there is a way to totally free your iPhone. As long as iOS will be attainable on contract-free phones there is hope one of the hackers will find the "master key".

We are JUST fine without you Egohot. We obviously don't need you anymore so just go back to stroking you ego
      And apparently the reason its coming out on 10/11 is because he heard the jailbreak is coming out on 10/10 and he just put the day after. If that is true he is a complete ******* and further proves we don't need pricks like him running around with his self proclaimed "almighty god" status.

      Ok so it is unfortunate that 2 exploits will be revealed.. BUT.. It was also unfortunate that 3rd Gen users were left wondering what now? Personally I still own a 3Gs as well as owning a Iphone4. Perhaps CDT were a little too forward thinking with the exploit they intend on using. Whatever happens now, and for whatever reason... This is of benefit to all idevice users FOR NOW. We an only speculate the problems for the 5th Gens. Fingers crossed everyone.

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!
      i would rather pay for his services then have him "show his age" as he has been since this whole thing started... he drops off the face of the earth then all of a sudden the ******* DAY chronicdev posted their release date, this little drama queen announces limerain... **** that

      keep that god damned drama in high school... big ******* deal, he unlocked the first iphone, do you honestly think that if he didn't someone else wouldn't have??? it was just a matter of time.

      anyway, LONG LIVE CHRONICDEV AND IPHONE-DEV!!! GeoFag can lick my left nut, he don't rate to touch the right one

      I talk **** on geo because he is a flakey SOB. he may be smart and he has done alot but he is an *******. You never know when he will actually release stuff. He screwed the whole ps3 scene over with his crap. I think he is in sonys and apple pocket. You can defend him all you want. You can say "why don't you make a jb or STFU" until you are blue in the face, but when you tell people your doing something it becomes your responsibility to follow through, Not just when you feel like it. I work in the osx86 community alot for people with dells I know very well what it's like to have people swamping you with demands and insults for something you do for free. It takes a truly nice person to embrace those people and help out where you can and not call them stupid at some hacker convention. Yeah the iPhone scene would not have evolved as quickly with out geohot, but it still would of happened. He is not the only iPhone dev. We would of still had a scene with out geohot, but there would not be a whinny mouthy little ***** like geohot with out the scene. IMO

      Geohot is the ******* man. Sure he was cocky at times but I never bashed him because I know he is so good. I was using blackra1n on my 3GS but i don't know if I'll be able to hold on 1 more day for limera1n for my ip4. either way this is amazing cuz he's working alone and can release sh*t almost before any team.

      All BS aside... Both Devteam's deserve credit!! GeoHot deserves just as much. Regardless of the situation, it's the users who benefit. And everybody (which ever exploit helps you) should be thankful!!

      On that note, Sunday, Monday, or whatever day following should rejoice that they are aloud to free their devices from the death grip of Apple.... No pun intended!!!!!

      I understand why he wants to release his now then. If it had of been a completely different exploit, my guess is he would of held off and kept his, and let comex release a jb for 3GS users for 4.2.

      Still, I'm going to be using greenpois0n. Like I said before, I just think it will be fully tested, all bugs ironed out etc.

      It's funny, I bet most of the people who are sucking up to GeoHotz now were among the people who were flaming him for leaving the jb scene in the first place. Now they are defending him just because he has a jb for 3rd gen users.
