I was trying to jailbreak an old iPhone 3G using limera1n and had a very strange thing happen to me. My iPhone 4 and my mom's iPad 2, which were both connected to wifi got wiped and had the screen instructing me to connect to iTunes.

After connecting to iTunes, iTunes wanted me to restore the iPhone and iPad.

This was not a big deal because I had iCloud backups, but it is one of the strangest things I have ever seen. Has this happened to anyone else?

I also tried running RedSn0w earlier in the day, but I'm pretty sure this issue stemmed from limera1n. How can I prevent this from happening in the future? My current solution is turning off wifi on my laptop when attempting jailbreaks.
