    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.

      theres no unlock which is somethign that has been posted EVERYWHERE. so u better go back and downgrade. if im not mistaken that is you're only option.



      actually wait i think 4.1 upgrades your baseband and u are completely SOL unless u used tinyumbrella to block your baseband from upgrading.

      ask someone to make sure of all this but i think this is the situation you are now in

      I need help!! Ok well I have the iPhone 4 with 4.0.1, so if I want 4.1, I must update to 4.1 via iTunes, and then jailbreak? OR should I just stay on 4.0.1 and just jailbreak via Limera1n and it will update to 4.1? Thanks for all the help, I just don't want to lose anything. I have tried searching everywhere for this info, and nothing has told me yet.

      Limera1n works with 4.0-4.1 atm
      so any firmware within that range is good to go

      Update with tiny umbrella. Then jailbreak with limera1n. Then install ultrasn0w from cydia.

      If you dont want to lose anything just stay at 4.0.1 and jailbreak. You can use limera1n or jailbreakme.com. If you want to go to 4.1 I suggest using tiny umbrella to do it to preserve your baseband so that you can unlock after restoring to 4.1, otherwise you will lose your ability to unlock (if you do unlock that is, if you dont need unlock just update to 4.1 then jailbreak).

      it will not upgrade u to 4.1. u will have to update to 4.1. then use limerain. if you're iphone 4 is unlocked dont go near it unless u use the method to preserve your current baseband

      Since this is a bootrom exploit, that means we can have custom boot logos right? Can this be done via SSH/iFile and simply putting your own picture in? If so, what directory is it in? Thanks.

      Geohot said you can have boot logos but only with a tethered boot, so not in its current form.

      iPhone 4 with existing 4.1 ios downloaded from iTunes a month ago. Installed limerain using Win7 32bit. Followed the instructions to the letter. Installed like a treat without doing restore. Rebooted got icons and deleted limerain using the limerain install. Who gives a toss who did what. I got a jailbroken iPhone 4!!!!!! Oh yes!

      Limera1n jailbreaks all devices, and geohot was going to release Limera1n on 10/11/10 a day after the dev teams release theirs. Geohot wanted p0sixninja (creator of greenp0ison) to use the exploit he found that jailbreaks all devices, but p0sixninja said it was too late to implement it.

      I believe Geohot released his Limera1n to better the community, and he didn't release it a day earlier to be a douche bag, he released it a day earlier so that 2 bootrom exploits wouldn't be wasted in one week. As the SHAtter exploit might be present in upcoming devices.

      I, for one, am glad Geohot did this, he's fast and good at what he does. It's good the community has him back again, don't push him away
      who knows he may have an unlock for the new i4 baseband?
      Wow about time someone spoke out and knows what the hell they are talking about!

      Half the replies here are full of s^&t and the rest are not even worth the read.

      I congratulate Geohot for doing what was evidently right and release a jailbreak for all ios and ver. of the iPhone.

      And yes it may have pissed off a few dev guys but what are we all getting pissed off about ? Geohot saved the devs from making a stupid mistake is releasing a second exploit that Apple could patch and that it would only benifit people with iPhone4.

      Another point is Geohot didn't steal anything he doesn't need too, and i'm glad he has broken out and working for himself.

      With all the **** he's been getting i'm supprised he's even still helping out all of us with new exploits and jailbreaks.

      If i was in Geohots shoes I'd be saying you ungratefull bunch and give you all the bird ^!^

      Geohot Rules !!!!!!

      I jailbroke my lil sisters iphone 4 4.1 with Limera1n no problem (windows 7). Thank you Geohot.

      I have iphone 3gs jailbroken 4.0

      Here's my question (sorry if this has already been answered this thread grows crazy!) I want to update to 4.1, so im wondering if this is what i should do:
      backup with itunes (sync all my current apps)
      update via itunes to 4.1
      then jailbreak with limera1n
      then sync with itunes again my previous backup.

      with that process, will i get to keep all my previously sync apps? cuz there's some apps my sisters iphone 4 can't get. thanks guys.

      Geohot can give me the bird all he wants. I have had a jailbroken iPhone 4 on iOS 4.1 for 15 days and I didn't use lamera1n. It tethered but I can live with that. Enjoy that buggy release.

      In past experience when doing a restore and backup, once the restore is done and the phone reboots, iTunes puts up a popup if you have a backup already under devices and asks if you want to create a new phone or backup from a previous phone...when I chose as a new phone it deleted any backups that were under "devices", so I would do the jailbreak last becaues you have to either select new phone or a backup before you can go any further.

      Ok, I posted awhile back out MMS not working after a beta1 limera1n JB. I got home and ran the beta 4 to see if it would work. I tried sending a simple picture to 3 people, 2 on AT&T 1 on VZW, VZW got it while AT&T did not..?
