    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.

      You efing morons that talk crap about geohot, or ANY person that helps this community should be kicked in the teeth. You morons. EVERYONE that contributes to this community should be thanked. That's it. There's no competition about who releases what, before who, or how many bugs there are. They all work for the same end-result. God, some of you are just retarded! ugh

      GEOHOT IS GOD THANK YOU FOR THIS. WORKS GREAT AND BETTER THEN THE DEV TEAM CRAP AS USUAL. Thats hillarious that you defied them AGAIN and did this... i remember when 3GS came out and you came out with your jailbreak weeks before they planned to just cause they were IDIOTS and wanted to make us wait.

      After reading 26 pages of posts, I think ill add my 2 cents. Objectively as possible.
      Something here just doesnt add up. I do think Geohot is an attention seeker. For whatever reason it seems he needs people to know that he is good. Well, i think most people would agree he has talent, its the crap ***** way he goes about things that most people would get pi$$ed at. Hence, the remarks by the chronic dev team.

      Now, lots are saying the dev team refused to implement the exploit cause there wasnt enough time, and hence geohot released his exploit to SAVE shatter/greenpoison. Could this be true? Possibly. What doesnt make sense to me is, if geohot had this exploit for months (as I have read around) why wouldnt one then "share" this knowledge, if you want to call it that, long before a release? (Apparently he has been working on Limera1n for 6 months) I somehow dont think the chronic devs (if given 6 months notice) would refuse to implement the same exploit in their release. One would think it would be a good idea to have another exploit in reserve, in the case with shatter, "should" apple come up with a way to patch Limera1n.

      I do I trust geohot? I dont know. Why would one work on a jailbreak if you are supposed to be retired from this scene? Why would one, if you wanted to save an exploit in shatter, not work with the chronic devs for the last 6 months to make a proper, bug free jailbreak and not wait 1 day before one was supposed to be released? In my opinion, i dont think his intentions are pure in regards to the jailbreak community.

      Again, no one is denying his talents.. I think there are too many questions regarding his intentions and that helps no one.

      Ok having spent all morning reading about the woes and stuff related to limera1n I decided to put it to the test on an old boot version 3gs 16gb running 3.1.2 which was redsnowed and was fully loaded and running fine
      upgraded to 4.1 no problems
      jailbroke with limera1n no problems except limera1n icon was white and after installing cydia from limera1n no cydia icon rebooted all showing ok..
      installed cydia fully added a few things sbsettings winterboard makeitmine bitesms ifile tonefxs mobile terminal backgrounder remove recents clock hide then I got a warning on low disk space !!!!!
      opened up sbsettings to see I had 8mb of storage left ???
      dfu mode installed 4.1 again and same stuff as before same problem in cydia blue warning screen of running out of disk space..
      so..downgraded to 3.1.2 sbsettings says 273mb storage now..
      so is it to do with limera1n or 4.1 cant make my mind up yet as to what the culprit was..
      Limerain Mmmm
      4.1 Mmmm
      what is the general synopses..

      Ok, so it's like the 4th beta released now? Lucky I didn't make it ra1n last night when it first got released. I'm guessing it's still going to be a buggy piece of crap, beta's should never be released to the public.

      Oh well, since egohot has single handedly delayed greenpois0n, I guess I'll use limera1n. I just can't wait any longer. So here's my questions:

      Anyone with an iPhone 4 get a smooth jb with limera1n? No issues like lost wifi, bluetooth, mms, etc? Has your iPhone 4 crashed since jaulbreaking with limera1n? Sorry for the questions, but I read through 20+ pages of comments last night on a topic, and its 11AM now so I don't feel too much like doing it again lol.

      I successfully unlocked my iPhone 4 4.1 last night with limera1n. No problems here, it worked perfect. I'm now patiently waiting for that new ultrasn0w so I can actually use my phone
