    How to Jailbreak 4.1 with limera1n

    Big breaking news in our world tonight as limera1n (to jailbreak iOS 4.1 for all iDevices) has been released - though it is for windows only (Yes, yes, a Mac version would be nice, but let's appreciate what we've got and give props out to where they belong).

    A full guide and a slightly restructured guide system will be provided by ModMyi later this evening. By several accounts, and corroborated by those of you have have already delved right in, it works pretty well so far (though issues could become apparent, as the release is so fresh anything could still develop in the moments ahead). So exercise the degree of caution you're comfortable with and stick with MMi for tons of info, insight, and fallout in the minutes and hours to come.

    Making this weekend a jailbreaker's dream, let's not forget about what Sunday has in store. Chronic Dev Team member Joshua Hill recently tweeted that Greenpois0n will launch on October 10, at 10:10:10 A.M. “Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM.” so be on standby with your iDevices for what will be a pretty sweet Sunday.

    UPDATE

    There is high drama in jailbreaker's paradise tonight as we're learning all is not smooth sailing with limera1n (the bugs are alive and well), as it simply isn't working right for everyone. Adding to the drama is the apparent reality that greenpois0n isn't coming out tomorrow after all. To be sure, the Chronic Dev Team is not happy with GeoHot at the moment. Stay tuned.

      ok, any suggestions then?
      i really am concerned about jailbreakme.com killing my phone.

      can anyone unlock 4.1?
      or are they all using modified ipsw files to not update the baseband

      When you run it, it tells you what version it is.

      Just did it on my iPhone 4 (4.0.1) on Windows XP ... I wasn't going to wait for a Mac release... :-P And it worked flawlessly. Everything's a-ok!

      This is like an ongoing soap opera:

      Geohot dramatically calls it quits during the season finale, leaving us to wonder if he's really a good guy, or if he's only thinking about himself. But then at the start of the new season he's back, and he's saving the day! Oh the emotional rollercoaster!

      "Days of Our Jailbreak", tonight @ 8pm EST, CBS.

      As much as I can see, GeoHot is kind of erratic in his behavior. The Dev Team has remained professional about all of this, and not matter how right GeoHot is about saving the Shatter exploit, if he had more communication with the Dev Team he could have avoided them wasting their time. I'm not getting on anyone's case here, it just seems to be a big mess of a misunderstanding that could have been avoided.

      Now to try out this Jailbreak. I hope I don't lose any important functionality...

      I just upgraded my 4.0.1 jailbroken iPhone 4 through iTunes to 4.1 and used limera1n Beta2 to jailbreak my device. I bought my iPhone 4 on release day, if that matters.

      When it first jailbroke the limera1n icon was just plain white, clicked on it anyway and installed cydia, it's icon installed white. Ran all the updates on cydia and after updating, both icons were back to their normal selves. Once jailbroken i reinstalled all my packages, including cydelete, and deleted limera1n.

      If you want limera1n gone, use cydelete, quick and easy.

      Haven't had any problems with the phone, using game center as we speak. Happy jailbreaking people.

      Remember to back up your SHSH's and your phone before the attempt.

      Key is to watch the ra1n window and follow the instructions exactly. You must put the iphone into DFU recovery mode for the exploit to work. Remember also, to run limera1n as admin. There will be a few reboots necessary to clear out bugs from the limera1n and Cydia installs (for instance, the lack of the limera1n icon for some people).

      I had problems with the icon and installing Cydia. A few reboots fixed it. As of right now, the only thing not working on my phone is RemoveBG in SBSettings - it crashes the Springboard.

      I also had problems removing the limera1n app after it was done. Just install CyDelete to remove it.

      Good luck!

      mainly because at one time i made the mistake of trying to run blackra1n on a device that wasnt restored to an untouched state, and it bricked it and i had to restore it.

      the phone i have is a 4.0 with no shsh, and many months of use on it.

      so if it went bad and i had to restore it then i could ONLY goto 4.1 and then lose any hope of unlocking when the baseband is updated.

      Who says it only works on Gen 4 devices? Allegedly working on 3G and 3GS old bootrom.
