    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.

That's why he deleted his twitter account and "left" the JB scene... To work in private because he's "damned if he dies; damned if he doesn't" with people like you.
      Think before you speak. Geohot promised Comex that he could use his untethered exploit and that he will release it at a later time. Geohot lied and released it today and betrayed Comex, and caused all this madness. Even MuscleNerd said that Geohot used Stolen Code.

      People dont understand..

      Greenpoison would not have jailbroken the iPhone 3GS and older..

      The SHAtter exploit would not have worked on older devices. Only 4th gen devices.

      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?

      there are definitely a few issues. namely the problem where you can't uninstall limerain.

      also cydia would not show up until after a few tries

      Everything I've heard says ra1n doesn't work on 3GS. Anyone used it on 3GS?

      Well, this certainly took a while to get posted. It's been, what, 5 hours? (Considering the past 2 days, that's like 5 years in the jailbreaking news cycle). :P

      This has been said for weeks now. I don't know when geo asked for his exploit to be used or even if he did. All I know is that it is becoming very apparent the he is driven by something other then the good of the community. He's made quite a few more enemies tonight it seams.

      Part of what you said was true. SHAtter does in fact only work on A4 devices. LimeRa1n doesn't support ALL devices. It doesn't support the iPhone 3G and ipt2g even though they're pwned4life (This is a minor issue). The major issue is that the LimeRa1n's JB for the 3GS broken, therefore NOT WORKING. So LimeRa1n actually JB's the newer devices as well as SHAtter the only old device LimeRa1n supports at the moment is the ipt3g.

      Before I even go near any of this, I need a good recommendation for a cydia app backup program. I used to go through rock, but well, we all know about that. Anyone have a good, reliable, app back up they can recommend?

      he did not make enemies..
      the only person that is mad is @pod2g the person who discovered the SHAtter exploit.

      MuscleNerd even agreed Geohot releasing his exploit makes more sense.
      And Comex AGREED to Geohot using his code.

      Its all on twitter. Geohot did what was smarter. He believes Apple already knows about the exploit he has because he has had it for so long. While, SHAtter is a new exploit and has a better chance of existing in upcoming devices.

      Are you kidding?! This exploit SAVED the community from a wasted bootrom exploit (think about it: only the EARLIEST Apple TV units would be able to use it and NO 2nd-gen iPads). This is the WRONG time to play that card and it sounds like GP was going to ignore that just because they were nearly ready.
