    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.

      Please read the link I gave you. It details how to change the passwords without requiring mobile terminal at all.

      Just to let you all know that I have successfully upgraded to 4.1 with preserving the BB. I did require the original AT&T sim to activate the phone.
      Everything went fine - managed to send one MMS but that can be a hit and miss situation as it was before. Curious to see any Bluetooth improvements (this was really bad in 4.01)
      Thanks to all for the good advice!

      sorry, still trying to stop banging my head on the wall.

      i just assumed that my phone had to be connected in some way if i were to use the terminal app it mentions. i tried using the Mac terminal app and the connection was refused, then i tried using iterm like the mentioned article and it says the same thing... to be exact it says:

      "ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.x port 22: Connection refused" (i obviously used my IP address but didn't want to include that in this post)

      suggestions? am i missing something here?

      Hi, I updated my iPhone 4.01 to 4.1 by stupidity, the baseband upgraded as well. I waited for limera1n and it jailbroke 1st time. I now know I lost the unlock over the baseband upgrade through my own fault, but I have to hand it to geohot the guy is a genius, and I have no doubt he will unlock the baseband soon, thanks geohot I sincerly mean it, your a legend..

      I wouldn't hold my breath for a unlock from geohot. One should be coming from the dev team shortly after 4.2 drops though.

      I had my IP4, FW 4.0.2 jailbroken by limera1n, and cydia is already appearing. My next move now is to unlock so that i can use local sim here in my present location. My IP4 was not used (or not activated)when i was still in USA. should i use ultrasnow directly ? Or do i have to use Tiny Umbrella? Am a novice on this one and dont even know what is sshh ... etc.
      Any help guys??

      Use redsnow 0.9.6b6 to install cydia. It is a tethered jailbreak right now though.
