    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.

      Well, I'm already updating my iPhone to 4.1...I have my SHSH Blobs saved, so I'm not worried about losing the JB...I was just worried about the whole tedious downgrading and restoring process...but none of that really matters. And besides I don't use unlocking since I;'m stuck with AT&T for 1 1/2 more years, so I guess I don't anything to lose really...

      I'm not at square one with no jb, I'm at 4.0.1 with jb. Which is why I'm waiting for a less buggy jb from a less attention whore of a dev.

      HEY SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME OUT HERE:

      I am currently on a 3gs. New bootrom which means i was told use jailbreakme.com or nothing at all.

      MY NEW FROM APPLE 3GS HAS NO SHSH ON FILE.

      So my main goal of a jailbreak is unlock.
      my current modem firmware is 05.13.04

      So can i go to 4.1 and jailbreak using limera1n and still UNLOCK?!

      please disregard f0recast thinking i am already unlocked, i am not.

      This is classic whining. People whined about him leaving or not releasing a jailbreak. Some even said, "I don't care if it's a beta just release it." He releases it and they still whine.

      Quote it then. You are mis-characterizing what they said, which would be obvious in context.

      I think alot of people that are having problems are not restoring their phone to factory first. I have helped some friends today and on 7 devices not a single one has had a problem.

No, I'm not a dev.. and have no idea how to program an iphone.. that said.. all of these experts are doing it for bragging rights and so they can say they one-upped the powerful Apple. Georgie beat the dev team to the punch. He saw an opportunity -- saw the adulation they were getting and usurped them. It was an exploit he found.. and has been holding on to. No one denies it's a different exploit than the devs are using. Once he works the bugs out, it will be infinitely better as well. Why? Because there are still millions of hardware owners who do NOT have the fourth gen units. It's that simple.

      Is George a jerk? Yes.. an egoist? Damn straight. Am I glad he released it? Not yet -- I'm on a 3GS with the new bootrom.. but, I will as soon has he fixes it.

      my take -- take it or leave it.
      To "exploit" is "to use to your advantage." To maximize it, it must be SMARTLY used. For maximum effect, the SHA exploit must be saved for later. It's that simple. It's like saving your best cards for when they are needed so the saying that "they should wait to play that card" is a very good analogy. And it's funny how you put that... yes, they were "found in order to be used," so it only makes sense to USE them when they are most USEful and not WASTE them. To waste an exploit defeats the purpose of it.

      PEOPLE. The jailbreak is released. This isn't Edward vs. Jacob here. Limera1n is out. Enjoy it if you can, wait for a fix if you can't(3Gs new bootrom). Do you honestly think that your opinion of Chronic or Geo is going to change anything? There are a lot better things to fight over in this world than something that you personally have nothing to do with(who stole what, who used what exploit, etc) and that you have absolutely no control over. Let Chronic and Geo duke it out. This isn't your fight.

      Geohot's release does NOT force the Chronic Dev team to save their SHAtter exploit. They could still release it at their scheduled time if they want.

      When he offered the CDev team his exploit for greenpois0n, he was turned down for 2 reason: one was that it would delay the release of the jailbreak (bad for the community), and the other was that he would get the glory for the exploit (bad for the CDev team). What his release did was simply remove the glory from the equation. Nobody ever could have stopped geohot from releasing his exploit, but him releasing it before greenpois0n lets him take the glory for being the first to release a jailbreak since JailbreakMe.com. This is what the community is upset about: the Chrnoic Dev team called 'dibs' on the glory by announcing their upcoming release, but geohot decided to make a release anyways even though they said they wanted to do it first. HOWEVER, now that what has happened has happened and the glory is no longer in question, will the SHAtter release happen? Probably not, since at this point if the CDev team does release it, it will do more harm than good to the community (bad) while giving them a bit of glory. So, geohot's move didn't force them to hold off on releasing SHAtter but simply put them in a position where a release by them would do more harm to the community than good.

      Geohot's exploit was getting patching whether he made this release or not. At least now, even though it is getting patched, we have all currently released devices jailbreakable (once he tidies up the relase a but). We (as a community)also have the 'extra life' of SHAtter for when new devices are released. If things had played out like they were looking like earlier this morning, we would be in the same position we are now, except it would have taken 2 days longer and we would not have our 'extra life'.

      CDev team is looking bad for 2 years in a row now.. They did this last year... promised something, then bailed because they got all butt hurt...

      Wrong.. your assumption that you have to "smartly" use something when exploiting it is dead wrong. People, products and things are exploited every day and very rarely is the "smart"ness of it considered. Listen, these exploits have have been known and harbored for months and months.. the dev team forced Georgie to release his before he wanted to because of his ego. The dev team should still do theirs.. why? Because, there are ALWAYS going to be bugs, ports, openings and exploits in the FWs released by any software company. Your assumption -- along with many others -- is that the number of chances is limited. It's not. As long as these devices use firm and software, there will be hackers, programmers and glory hounds chomping at the bit to crack them.

      As much as it was a **** move by geohot, limera1n is working fine for me! the only problem is the limera1n and cydia icon didn't show up, but a reboot fixed that
