    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.

      We all know that there is three sides to every story
      My worry is that, if greenpoison does use geohot's (or whoever it was...comex's?) exploit
      Will it be as buggy as limerain? Will it not support the iphone 3g and ipt2g?

      No that is not wrong.

      But crying that geohot forced them into saving their exploit, WHICH IS BETTER for us!, is childish.

      Geohot tried the talking game, telling them to use his exploit instead of SHAtter and save SHAtter for another time. But they refused. So Geohot released his 2 days earlier to force them into saving SHAtter.

      They wanted their glory. But didn't get it, YET! Soon once the iPad 2 or iPhone 5? is released we will need the SHAtter exploit. But for now, its not the right time.

      Just JB my 3GS that was 4.0.2 and the BB stayed at 5.13, I would say that it worked out pretty well.

      Greenpoison wouldnt have supported it either..SHAtter doesnt work on anything 3GS and older.

      As of right now, Limera1n doesnt support ipod 2g and iphone 3g but on twitter it says thats a minor issue.

      Limera1n is still in beta. Its better to not use it right now!

      It was used to force the dev team into saving their exploit

      Wrong. Geohot offered his exploit for GP. They turned it down for no other reason than that they were almost done with theirs, even though it made more sense to release his. His uses Comex's method for staying JB'd after a reboot (I think that's the trick with code stored in the frame buffer corrupting the Apple logo), which was still there because Apple only patched the PDF exploit that initially ran the code and not the trick it uses to persist after a reboot. All Geohot needed was a new way to initially execute the code and he found one. Combining with Comex's trick was only logical, especially considering that Apple was already aware of it and would likely patch it out in the near future whether they used it again or not.

      From Comex's Twitter:

      "Fine, geohot's release now has my approval, because otherwise everyone would use the initial (pulled) broken version. Ugh."
      about 4 hours ago via web


      They all know what geohot did was BETTER for the community, they just wish he said it sooner so they didn't spend all this time working on greenpoison and pwnagetool.
      This is exactly what I'm talking about. I have no idea HOW the exploits work and probably never will. But geo coming in at the last min to "save the day" is BS! shatter has been know about for almost a month or more. He could have come in then instead of releasing just hours before the dev team. He may have save a good exploit for the future, but the way he did things is what seams to be really getting to people.

      I can't stop laughing at posixninja's post a few days ago in contrast with what just happened
      "Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM"

      Roadblock...LOL

      AGREED! Seems like so far every other iDevice is jailbroken (Limera1n or not) except 3GS. I have the MC model 3GS, and have been trolling everywhere to find an answer/solution... I was hoping Greenp0ison was going to work- guess not.

      You're screwed. Stay on the firmware you're on. OR if you are ALREADY JAILBROKEN then use Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 for Windows to JB and upgrade your 3GS *BUT* you can't use Sn0wbreeze if you're currently JAILBROKEN with JailbreakMe or Spirit. If you fail to meet the requirements you're screwed.

      Yeah, Comex really seems to "approve" of this release. He is obviously resigned to the fact that it was going to be released anyway so he just gave up.

      You are the only person in this thread that seems to have a damn clue.

      Lime WILL support the 3GS. The only reason it doesn't work now is because it was rushed (for another good reason, I might add).
