Thread: limera1n help

    Default limera1n help
    I'm in 3GS model MC. I'm on 4.0.1 and jailbreaked using jabreakme.

    I have a couple of cydia apps and use ********** to only test apps then buy them (yes I really do).

    I want to upgrade to 4.1 and jailbreak using the new jailbreak medium.

    How do I do this without losing any cydia apps, ********** apps, normal AppStore apps, contacts and the other data.

    Thanks!

    Sync with itunes. Then restore to 4.1 and when your iphone is restored select "Restore from backup of XXXX iphone". Because whenever you sync your iphone with itunes, it create a backup!

    Use pkgbackup for your cydia apps.

    Only do this if you don't rely on an unlock though.

    Issues with 3GS have now been fixed with the latest update from geohot.

    hello i have a iphone 3gs new bootrom just updated to 4.1 and want to jailbreak with the new limera1n. i know this isnt a place to post a new thread but i was just wondering if anyone knows how to help me..

    I got a fresh restore from apple on 4.1, plugged into itunes and hit make it ra1n

    then it instructs me like usual to hold power + home, then release power and continue to hold home until it says "DFU mode on my computer" and it just never says DFU mode it will just stay at "release power button" no matter if i hold the home button for over a minute. then i have to do a full restore of my iphone becuase its like trapped in DFU mode..

    Try this,

    Close limera1n first.

    Turn your phone on and hold home+power for exactly 10sec, then release the power button and keep holding home for 30sec (This guarantees you are in DFU mode).

    Then run limera1n and click make it rain and it should say "In DFU mode...wait"

    Try a different USB port, different USB cord, different PC.

    Also you could try to uninstall iTunes and related software components in the following order:

    1. iTunes
    2. QuickTime
    3. Apple Software Update
    4. Apple Mobile Device Support
    5. Bonjour
    6. Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)

    Then reinstall itunes again.

    Also, what appears on the screen when you try go into DFU mode? Is it black?

    Also, you could try downloading USBview and see what shows up when you try go into DFU mode, this should show if your iphone is actually being recognised by your PC.

    Default Bricked my iP4 with limera1n
    Hello,


    I have an iPhone 4, and was running 4.0.1 jailbroken from jailbreakme.com. I decided to try limera1n so I would be able to upgrade to 4.1, so I backed up my phone, backed up SHSH using Umbrella, then ran limera1n...and it worked, except I realized I'd forgotten to update to 4.1 before trying limera1n. So I went to iTunes and told it to update to 4.1. It put my phone into Recovery Mode, and when the progress bar gets to 2/3, it just freezes. I'm not sure what to do. I tried putting it to DFU, and that's no help. Same problem. I would love to be able to run 4.1 jailbroken, but would be content if I could simply get it back to the way it was before it was bricked. :-(

    Please advise!

    Thanks.

    First, try deleting the firmware which has downloaded in itunes. It is located at "CUsers\XXXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\XXXXX".

    Then try restore again, letting it re download the firmware.

    If that doesn't work,

    Use the Control Panel to uninstall iTunes and related software components in the following order:

    1. iTunes
    2. QuickTime
    3. Apple Software Update
    4. Apple Mobile Device Support
    5. Bonjour
    6. Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)

    Then reinstall itunes, delete the firmware downlaoded above and try again.

    Lastly, try a different USB port, USB cord, and a different computer if possible.
