  • limera1n Now Available for Mac & PC


    Geohot has just recently updated the limera1n.com website to include a download link for Mac users. That's right, now everybody can join in on the fun.

    Check out the guide on how to jailbreak 4.1 with limera1n

    Limera1n is now compatible with both Mac and PC, and the expolit has already been ported by @wizdaz, to work with PwnageTool, for those users waiting on an custom firmware package in order to maintain their current baseband. I repeat: ultrasn0w unlockers should wait for PwnageTool

    So now we have a jailbreak tool for both Platforms, and a PwnageTool release right around the corner for creating custom, non baseband updating, firmwares. It's a great month in the land of Jailbreaking!

      I gotta say, Geohot is a pretty remarkable person. If it wasn't for him, we might not be where we are right now.

      With Pwnage tools, you can install boot & recovery images.

      No way to keep Cydia apps. You'll have to reinstall them after you restore/jailbreak. There is an app in Cydia called AptBackup that will backup a list of the installed apps and will reinstall them all after jailbreaking, but every time I've tried it my phone ended up rather broken and I ended up restoring/jailbreaking again and then just selectively installing certain apps.

      C'mon Saurik, where the hell is backup and restore? If nothing else, that sole feature should have been implemented before killing Rock off.

      Don't do anything yet, wait for the Pwnage tool to be released. If you upgrade to 4.1, you are not preserving your baseband.

      You don't have to use Pawnage tool to preserve your BB. I updated to 4.1 and used Tiny Umbrella to stay at 1.59. Don't ask me how, my phone was stuck in recovery and had to use Tiny Umbrella to kick it out of that mode.

      How did Rock implement determining which apps/packages were compatible with the new versions of iOS?

      If you are not unlocking your phone does it matter? What does waiting for pwnage tools do?

      "@johnbelden in order to get custom boot logos, it needs to be also untethered at the bootrom level (neither limera1n nor SHAtter are)"

      so no boot logos :'(

      Agreed!! geohot's work has always been solid in my experience- plus he did us all a HUGE favor by releasing lime when he did- let's not forget that--

      Silly question from a veteran jailbreaker, I just started unlocking my phone does pwnagetool activate the phone too?
