    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.

      Ultrasn0w does not work on iPhone 2G. Bootneuter is for iPhone 2G.

If he was only interested in glory, he never would have offered it to them. PERIOD. And if you think the 10/10/10 10:10:10 GreenPois0n announcement had nothing to do with him approaching them with his exploit, you are naive. They announced the date in response to behind-the-scenes goings-on with Geohot. They thought it would make him back down but, instead, it caused him to rush his release. Most people naively believe that their date wasn't a part of this and it was. It was the first volley/shot fired in this mini-war over which exploit should be used next. BOTH would have likely been saved for later if this hadn't been going on.
      Exactly my point. His release removed the glory from the equation and got the CDev team to view the situation without the glory clouding their judgment and make the decision that was best for the community.

      Where you say the choice was obvious after the release was made, I say that choice should have been clear even before his release. Ultimately, we are both supporting geohot's actions.

      Most of that is very much out-of-context. Read:

The dev team should still do theirs.. why? Because, there are ALWAYS going to be bugs, ports, openings and exploits in the FWs released by any software company. Your assumption -- along with many others -- is that the number of chances is limited. It's not. As long as these devices use firm and software, there will be hackers, programmers and glory hounds chomping at the bit to crack them.
      LMAO! Listen to yourself talk in circles.

      And his has nothing to do with it except they share Comex's ALREADY RELEASED AND OPEN SOURCE untethered trick (NOT the same exploit to install it). Once again, you interpreted it wrong.

      Uhh... Yeah. We all know why they are upset and it has nothing to do with "stealing." CONTEXT! Stop using your assumption about theft and assuming that it is the context.

      Duh. They have opposing "wishes." That's where all this drama came from. If they released GP tomorrow, it would be "very much against" Geohot's "wishes" too. you know that their motives had nothing to do with Comex's untether trick and more to do with them wanting to finish and release their jailbreak even though Geohot's made more sense. That's like being mad at Microsoft for releasing a Zune "very much against" Apple's "wishes." Who cares?! Comex made his trick public because it was used in JBme. Deal with it. Acting like he used it inappropriately is just a way to turn the public against him. The "owners" never said "stole." iH8Sn0w, you, and others ran with that assumption. cut it out... unless you enjoy being tools or pawns in this little back-and-forth. Think for yourself and consider the TRUE motivations of each side. "Glory?" Honestly? Come on.

      This was said out of spite and you know that it wasn't talking about the actual exploit. And we know that there were REASONS for releasing first which they left out of that post. It wasn't "just" to be "first." That would be stupid. Geohot has proven time and time again that he is NOT stupid.

      Not only does this not support your point, but it would only be true if they released THEIR exploit tomorrow anyway. This was a staring contest. This was just before they "blinked" by admitting that GP was delayed. They lost. It would have been them dooming the next gen if they launched anyway, not Geohot (which was kinda his whole point).

      about 6 hours ago via Tweetie for Mac
      TRUSTED HIM TO WAIT? Ha! They DENIED him and EXPECTED him to do what they wanted. He found a way to force their hand. Also, this is irrelevant to your point. It's just sour grapes. What does it have to do with your "theft" accusation?

      *sigh*... To those who don't know. Geohot stole @comex's exploit + implementation to make it untethered.
      They are just as confused about it as you. We know that he did NOT steal another exploit "plus" the untether trick. All he used was the PUBLIC untether trick.

      RT @notcom: DON'T use limera1n. It is likely to mess up your device since it uses a BETA version of the untether (stolen) from @comex
      about 6 hours ago via Tweetie for Mac
      Now that you know that it was the same trick as JBme, you know just how misleading that whole statement was. "Stolen" is manipulative and wrong. LOOK AT THE CONTEXT.

      Fine, geohot's release now has my approval, because otherwise everyone would use the initial (pulled) broken version. Ugh.

      And where does Comex accuse him of stealing?

      CZroe, we are just going to keep butting heads here. You seem to not mind geohot and I have disliked him for awhile. We both have different views about those tweets. Let's just agree to disagree and enjoy our iPhones. We don't need infractions for arguing in the thread. But thanks for taking the time to debate this with me.

      The exploit does. The current implementation doesn't due to being a rushed beta.
