    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.

      "RC" means "release candidate," so there is still the finished release to go which is often just the final RC renamed. Translation: We're close.

      FYI, Microsoft usually hits RC2 before a piece of software goes RTM (released to manufacturing AKA "finished and shipping version")

      Hmmm.. I already had beta 4, uninstalled, then I ran RC1b over it, no Limera1n icon showed up. Anyways, it probably doesn't matter because I already have Cydia from Limera1n beta 4.

      If your on iphone 4 just download tiny umbrella and run the tss server then open itunes and hold shift then click on restore and find your 4.1 firmware then wait till you get error 1004 then kick out of recovery from tiny umbrella this will not work for 3gs etc

      Kinda funny that everyone that was sh*tting on geohot saying they wouldn't use his buggy software and will wait for a proper and well done greenpoison. And it's buggy too lol

      Its not exactly their fault. They had to switch exploits at the last second. I am sure their original using shatter was a lot more polished.

      Not blaming them. Laughing more at the people that act like bugs don't exist and chronic dev team are perfect.

      I used Limera1n last night. I didn't really need to upgrade to 4.1 from 4.0.1 but did it anyways because I thought I was having some proximity issues. Now everything seems to be back to normal.

      Cydia installed fine. No issues to report yet.

      Just used it and also have nothing to report bug wise. Very smooth installation! Thanks Geohot and all involved!

      Hi Guys,

      Can you jailbreak using Limera1n on a pc that doesn't have iTunes installed & do you need to be connected via WI-FI?. I'm wanting to jailbreak my mates iPhone 4 at work on a pc with a mobile broadband USB dongle.
      Thanks in advance!!

      As long as the iPhone has iOS 4.0 - 4.1 on it then all you need is limera1n.exe and you'll be good to go.
