    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.

      Definitely. Limera1n doesn't download, it's installed by the program, Limera1n. Cydia isn't a big download, even if it was through the app store (thankfully, it's not)

      It did not work for me without the latest version of iTunes running simultaneously with limra1n.

      Used latest verson of Limera1n and it seemed to fix the Push issues. Also, 3g Unrestrictor is working now on 4.1 with a minor setting change.

      This is posted in the troubleshooting section in the cydia store.

      1.Add Mobilephone in the 3GUnrestrictor config app..
      2. Enable the isDirect Flag for the MobilePhone
      3. Make Sure WIFI is on, doesnt need to be connected to anything. Just on..

      Confirmed it worked for me.

      @baconguy THIS ARTICLE is similar to your problem i believe. See if any of those tips help. If not, Im really thinking the best thing to do is a restore. It sucks, but it usually solves everything.

      Also, Limera1n CONFIRMED working for me on iPhone 3GS. Restored/Updated to 4.1 from 3.1.3 and jailbroke using Limera1n. Took a few minutes. DO NOT USE APTBACKUP TO RESTORE CYDIA APPS. It caused my springboard to get stuck in "safe mode" and then I got stuck in a boot loop. Had to restore and re-jailbreak. Its better to do a fresh clean install of all your cydia apps. Yes, it blows.. but its the most problem-free way of doing things. I just did screen-shots (press power+home quickly) of all my installed cydia apps on cydia and reinstalled the ones I need. Also helped to do screenshots of my icon layout and Categories folders so I know how to re-organize the icons back to how I liked em.

      Well my 4g was like 30 seconds. This is the second time I have tried the 3G and I have been waiting around 15 min. I know now I could have used redsn0w but I wasn't thinking and to save myself another restore I wanted to know how long is too long.

      Are you talking about iPhone 3G or iPod 3G? Because, afaik Limerain still does not support the iPhone 3G and more than likely never will. Just restore and go for redsn0w if it's the iPhone.

      I was talking about the iPhone 3G. I gave up on limera1n and used redsn0w. I think I'll have to do it again though because I cannot get the Cydia icon to show correctly and it doesn't load right. Any suggestions on which ispw to use if I am on iOS 4.1.

      I have the same issue. Haven't used LWir to JB though. 3Gs 3.1.3 and I've had the problem for awhile now. I cant figure it out.
