    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.

      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.

      bitesms did not work by default
      Release 5.0 (beta 10) out now.. - biteSMS

      u have to download their beta,


      i cant answer your other problems. winterboard works for sure. i personall use lockinfo lockms lock etc.. etc.. and they work.

      most likely they are just not compatible with 4.1 yet

      Thanks for the quick reply. Winterboard seems to work fine otherwise, as does lockinfo. Just strange about the widgets.

      Glad to see the jailbreak, and quite frankly, I dont understand why 50% of the community has to complain, you complain if there isnt a way to JB your device, after you "accidently" update, and you complain when an update is released to jailbreak your i device, seriously, if its that bad of a life, switch to android. I have never seen so many people b*** and moan about nothing. Apple outlined it best with his post, we will be playing this game again when apple releases 4.2, and everyone "accidently updates" their i devices and cry because they cant jailbreak, the only solution to make those people happy, dont update your device!

      Totally unrelated, but you're in Wright Patt? I drive by the base all the time and company I'm with has some construction testing going on in the base. Small world.

      no offense but after u save your shsh theres a big message saying they are saved not to bother so so because u dont see the message in cydia.


      cydia takes a while to show up, especially with all the new users jailbreaking their phones.

      I know it says Cydia HAS the SHSH
      but i guess its just from all the jailbreaking which could be causing a delay (and the last time i did it, it showed up instantly)

So LimeRa1n actually JB's the newer devices as well as SHAtter the only old device LimeRa1n supports at the moment is the ipt3g.
      Thats funny, I got limera1n Beta1 working, the second he released it throught twitter, I know about the whole story, about cdevwill getting mad at geohot and whatever. What I did to make it work is by deleting the apple ip address on my host file in X:/windows/system32/drivers/etc and backed it up. The host file was modified to accept the SHSH hashes into cydias servers. Im still running the first limerain and cant uninstall it from my iphone. Thats because the uninstall bar in the app on the iphone is bugged. Since then without warning or without update notes, geohot releases beta 2 3 4 and 5

      I am assigned to Wright Patt, but not actually "stationed" there per say. I am an Air Force recruiter in Michigan and that is the closest active duty Air Force base so we are assigned there. Either way, I'm not too far from there

      School me on this: When I update to 4.1 will it update my baseband? If so how do I avoid this?
