    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.

      HAD 4.01 iPhone 4 that was jailbroken using jailbreakme, worked perfectly. Thought it was good idea to update to 4.1 based on what i had read in forums. Decide to maintain baseband so used tiny umbrella, followed instructions precisely then tried to apply limera1m most recent update. Appeared to work just fine, cydia then restore apps thru pkgbackup and apps did show up however got message that wasn't able to get cell data or something like that. Killed phone portion of iphone, wifi works but no phone period. Won't show network or carrier (ATT). Tried to restore using the custom ispw from tiny umbrella in desperation and still no phone, call ATT support they suggest bad sim, went and got new sim still no phone service. Anyone have ideas all help appreciated.

      Yeah, this ended up working. Thanks for your help guys.

      I guess there's not much else to do but a clean update and a clean restore. This will of course mean a new baseband for you, but if you went so far that you actually changing your SIM, I think something's pretty messed up.

      if u have an at&T iphone and u are with at&T whats the point of worrying about the baseband? unless u plan on selling your iphone 4 in the next 2 months its pointless as their will be a unlock out by then. my iphone 4 is factory unlocked so i didnt care about the baseband and just updated then made it rain

      Why does a clean restore mean a Baseband update? He used Tinyumbrella to preserve the baseband. When I updated my IP4 to 4.1 a month ago, I used TUmbrella and it worked great. I did a clean restore from 4.02. Im just asking...

      Everything appeared to be fine, even restore all pkgs with pkgbackup but the carrier disappeared, wifi still works but can't make or receive calls not even the emergency type. I even tried to do a factory restore after spending most of the day trying to figure it out but wouldn't even allow that. I may tried rolling back via tiny umbrella to 4.02 and see if that will work. All help appreciated.

      Are you on a PC? If so, was your Host file properly modified to point to Cydia? I had the same issue when I tried on a earlier Iphone.

      Yes it's been set properly for quite some time. I used tiny umbrella to not change baseband and phone says 4.1 with old baseband so it appears that part worked.

      Run Limra1n with Itunes running. Seems to work for most people with this bug.

      I wonder if I could have some help, and I wasn't sure if this was the best place to ask.

      I just jailbroke my iPhone 4 (from 4.0.1 to 4.1) a little bit ago today. After I installed Cydia, I used Aptbackup to restore my previous cydia apps – this did so marvelously. But after I rebooted, ALL my regular Apple App Store apps were gone – games, facebook/twitter, everything. No problem, I thought, I'll just do a restore from backup in iTunes at my home computer. About an hour later I did so, but as iTunes was trying to sync everything, I noticed something strange – 6 gigs of data was allocated to "other" in the capacity bar at the bottom of the sync page. This had never happened before.

      So obviously my sync couldn't complete. The 6 gigs of "other" was around the same size as my music library, so I deleted the music from my phone just to make space for the time being.

      I started doing some browsing around regarding the issue and I read something about there being an excess amount of data in the directory var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music folder or something like that (I forget the exact location). Sure enough there was a bunch of folders in there on my phone, but I didn't know the size of them. I deleted them anyway, but everytime I try to re-sync, the "other" data is still there at 6 gigs in iTunes, and my phone still says in Settings->General->About that there has been no change in available space.

      I would really love to fix this problem, and I have no idea what else could be the cause of said problem. I know that some people say to just do a full restore, but I would really prefer not to, and I'm not clear if that would get rid of my 4.1 limera1n'd jailbreak. Any help or guidance on this matter?

      I would REALLY appreciate some help with some weird stuff going on after limera1n.

      So I upgraded to 4.1 then jailbroke without any problems. Seemed to work, except:

      1) Widgets (weather, clock, etc) for ANY winterboard theme will not work, at all.

      2)Some Cydia apps won't even open (BiteSMS)

      3)Infinidock installs, but doesn't work. Shows up in Settings, but does nothing.

      Still finding new problems. Any ideas?
      Thanks in advance.

      Those all sound like issues that will have to be fixed by updates to those apps. Probably not all 4.1 compatible yet.
