    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.


    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.

      "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...
      GREAT way to put it. That's been my only complaint: communication. If he told everyone that the iP4 exploit he was using wasn't his to release, people would not have attacked him for "teasing" us and not releasing it. If he had told everyone that the reports were wrong and that there was no "pwned4life," he could have stopped the massive flow of misinformation about it that continues to this day even on this very website's news pages. If he had told everyone

      Anybody who cares about the jailbreak "community" is retarded. All you should all care about is if your phone/iPod gets jailbroken. If this jailbreak works then great, if it doesn't then whatever. Who gives a sht about the politics of it.

      I'm sorry you feel that way. The devs work hard to do make jailbreaks. You have every right to jailbreak and leave it at that. If you think the community is retarded the don't post asking for help, it's the community that responds. Don't check the site for jailbreak releases, it's the community that post the stories (modmyi is a huge part of the community). You use the community more then you think.

      I see why people are mad at what Geohot did, but that dosent change the fact that his JB works..at least for me.

      I've seen people post about certain bugs...But what are they??

      I've got a 3GS thats never been jailbroken before with no shsh saved on file and this thing works. IMHO, it's better then Greenpoisi0n in the aspect that it actually supports my/more devices..lol Since Geohot's JB works for more devices, isn't his exploit better?? I know he took the untether from Comex, but in actuality, isn't his JB more needed??

      I don't agree with theft, but his works and I'm grateful.

      Thanks man.

      Make sure you use tiny umbrella to preserve your baseband. Then you can unlock.

      So what exactly WILL be the difference between Greenpois0n and Limera1n??

      I'm not reading through 18 pages of bickering if this has already been answered.

      Is Greenpois0n just a "fixed" version of limera1n with the bugs worked out...or what??

      Well Just Updated from 4.0.1 to 4.1 and no real big issues, except after backing up my Cydia with Aptbackup when I restored lost all icons, but they had moved to "other" section but were not accessible through the phone. Restored and jailbroke and just backed up the old fashioned way (pen and paper) adn all works fine now
