  • 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.

      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.
      Do you realize geohot was the first person to discover the "shatter" exploit.... Which means he has had just as much time if not more to iron out any bugs?

      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)!
      You know greenpois0n isn't made by the original dev team right? The chronic dev team are different people

      From what I've been reading, GeoHotz exploit is another bootrom exploit, very close and similar to SHAtter - but not actually SHAtter. I'm going by what StealthBravo said on this topic, and also what others have said on twitter.

      IMHO, it's a real shame to burn two perfectly good exploits.

      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
      Wow, you're a mental giant. I'm waiting for your jailbreak.... still waiting..... hmmmm...... yeah. You're a douche that can't put out a jailbreak yet you talk **** about a guy that can. Who's acting like a high schooler?

      For all you **** talkers riddle me this.... When Geo's JB was the only one available did you dl it and JB your i? If you did (of course you did) you're a hypocrite. Don't like his work then don't use it but don't be an internet toughy and talk **** about the guy.

      It is you hthat has not been following Twitter properly. SHAtter IS A TETHERED exploit. It needs userland 'assistance' to become untethered. That means Apple can patch the 'tetheredness' of Greenp0ison so the next time SHAtter is used it might well be tethered.

      So Tario70 is correct and you shouldn't mock him before checking your facts.

      Why? The only thing would be to play cracked games which is just SUPERGAY! don't be such a cheapskate!
      Although if he was to implement a web browser then I would probs use it just because that is the one thing the 360 severely lacks..

      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?

      Right dude and I'd rather stick with a chipset flaw that can't be easily fixed...fawk geokid!

      Ok people keep talking about burning 2 exploits, one thing a lot of A4 device owners are not considering is GP does not work on old devices 3GS, 3G and iPod 2g s and limera1n will. Geohot has some ego problems and I don't care for him as a person much but he is a genius and will use his tool if an unlock is ever released for 4.1. I will be using GP to JB my iPad tho. Just seems like non A4 devices were left in the dark on the GP jailbreak release which sux for us 3GS owners cuz it's still a badass phone not like if it were the 1st gen iPhone or something where the hardware can't even support this new firmware. The 3GS can so it should not be left in the dark!

      Umm from what I understand is SHatter is a bootrom exploit and so is Limera1n and if you do you research bootrom exploits can only be patched by changing the hardware. You clearly have no idea what ur talking about.

      Hey respect geo.
      Remember he first unlocked d iPhone.
      For me I think he knows more that the devs.
      He may be by himself but he is surly awesome.
      Go geohot!!!!!!

      You forgot to add that he's also an unstable, emotionally challenged kid who basically needs to crawl back into the hole he just came out of!

      Releasing his exploit is just going to engrave him in eveyone's mind as the douchebag who wasted an exploit and gave apple a one-up!!

      Whatever the kid does, The DevTeam will find other ways....long live The DevTeam!!!
