    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.

      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?

      can someone please answer my question, i know this is annoying to spam the thread asking again and again but it may help others also to answer this:

      i have a 4.0 device with this situation:


      i can only go UP because my shsh blobs are not saved. now can i safely go from 4.0 to 4.1 via a standard itunes upgrade then use limera1n to jailbreak and unlock?

      please to be helping and thanks again.

      *WHO CARES WHAT GEOHOT IS. I CANT CODE AND DEVELOP A JAILBREAK. I APPRECIATE ANYONE WHO TRIES*

      I can confirm that limera1n worked perfectly on my iphone 4 4.1! I just had to reboot after installing Cydia through limera1n icon! Great Job to both Geohot and the Chronic Dev team... and Comex.

I see people talking about baseband issues and stuff with the phone, but none of that has anything to do with the wifi iPad, does it?
      Just finished using this on my iPad. It worked great.

      If you update to 4.1 with itunes then your baseband will be updated and you will lose your unlock. So dont do that.

      @iH8sn0w not really. last year we gave him greenpois0n and told him how exploit worked, and he turned and made blackra1n very soon after.

      When you can't jailbreak your iPhone 5, iPad 2, or iPod touch 5G, remember that it's all thanks to @geohot.

      *sigh*... To those who don't know. Geohot stole @comex's exploit + implementation to make it untethered.

      RT @notcom: DON'T use limera1n. It is likely to mess up your device since it uses a BETA version of the untether (stolen) from @comex

      You are arguing semantics. He knew that they'd have to either do the right thing or they would do harm so he "forced" that decision/situation on them. The choice from there was obvious.

      Also, "glory" and "dibs" have little to do with this. It's be just another "Thanks to Geohot!" in the readme if they accepted his exploit. If he was only interested in glory, he never would have offered it to them. PERIOD. And if you think the 10/10/10 10:10:10 GreenPois0n announcement had nothing to do with him approaching them with his exploit, you are naive. They announced the date in response to behind-the-scenes goings-on with Geohot. They thought it would make him back down but, instead, it caused him to rush his release. Most people naively believe that their date wasn't a part of this and it was. It was the first volley/shot fired in this mini-war over which exploit should be used next. BOTH would have likely been saved for later if this hadn't been going on.

      I know this is off topic from this post but is GP coming out or not? Cause there's a bunch of sites on google saying it's not and some are saying it is.

      I can confirm that limera1n is a pain in the buttocks to install on a mbp with parallels. Still working on it. I've had to restore my phone twice now. The two OS's are fighting over USB control and it screws it all up. Will run boot camp if I have to but there has got to be a way around. I just told Parallels to assume all control over new devices connected, so hopefully OSX stays out of it while I try to make it rain already.

      If you want to remove the limera1n app so bad install cydelete from cydia so u can remove it like any regular app and those still on 4.0.2 why not update to 4.1 save your shsh. Do a restore with tiny umbrella so you keep your BB for iphone 4
