    Default limera1n 10/11/10 jailbreaks all devices?


    Alright, I chatted with geohot earlier today but was sworn to secrecy - although it seems the news made its way out anyway, so geohot said go ahead and cover it here.

    geohot is prepped to launch limera1n (we covered the possibility of such a software months ago) on 10/11/10 - the 1 year anniversary of the release of blackra1n.



    p0sixninja, who's work on SHAtter has been vital in making it happen, has already set an ETA of 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM for greenpois0n, his jailbreak for all A4 devices (iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod Touch 4G). geohot now has returned from "retirement" and announced a release the day after greenpois0n's slated release date - with a jailbreak that would work on /all/ iDevices.

    The two jailbreaks use separate exploits, although greenpois0n uses a new one, SHAtter, while geohot has used the exploit in limera1n before (and yah, it still works). geohot hasn't made an official announcement anywhere, so there's still the off chance someone will randomly talk him out of releasing, but it's looking pretty solid. There is some talk of p0sixninja even using geohot's exploit in greenpois0n, saving SHAtter for a future jailbreak, but it doesn't look like p0sixninja is interested in it, as it'd push back release dates even more.

    So... either way, looks like all you folks out there waiting for Game Center, AirSharing, AND Cydia... you'll get your cake (pie) come Sunday and Monday. And apparently you'll need a big plate.

    I knew he'd come back! He's too good of a hacker to give all this up! BlackRa1n was a huge success and worked wonders for me! Looking forward to "Making It Ra1n" once again! Keep up the good work and welcome back Geo Hot!

    The question is what will limera1n leave out? AFC2, et cetera. Will it kill your wi-fi?
    Hmm...

    As long as greenpois0n is untethered, I'll run it vice the other option. Time will tell. Nonetheless, thanks out to all involved in the current JB's!

    I think the best course of action is wait a few days and see how many people report issues with either jb.

    in any case im leaning more towards Geo

    if he really wanted to make some big news and be the king again he should release it saturday! now im wondering what kind of exploit is it, and can the limera1n jailbreak be patched with a FW update or is he using his PWND4life?

    It's unfortunate that these two jailbreaks will be using different exploits.

    Seeing as two entire dev teams have been collaborating on greenpois0n for quite sometime, I would ASSUME greenpois0n would be the better, more polished jailbreak.

    That "other guy" has been working on limera1n by himself? Maybe a few others? I can't imagine it being as smooth and tested.

    That being said.....who knows though!! It would be great if Geo could be a team player. Either way....4.1 here we come!! Woo hoo!!

    Oh... And go SF Giants!!!
