I noticed that I had to try Limera1n three times on beta 1, and on the time it worked, it opened iTunes.
    Also, you need to have iTunes installed for it to work. I think this may be some BootCamp and VM users' problems. It would not work for me until I installed iTunes and the proper drivers were loaded.

    How is the dev team short changing you?

    Anyone done a 3GS on 4.0.2? I want it JB without updating the baseband so I can unlock. TU only works with the iPhone 4 to update the firmware without updating the baseband.

    So anyone limera1ned a 3GS at 4.0.2 and had it successfully jailbreak without updating you to 4.1?

    That's because it needs the drivers for when the iphone goes into recovery mode. Those drivers are installed when you install itunes.

    Uhh... yeah I can. Firstly, Sony is the one who removed OtherOS. Secondly, it is thanks to his advice ("Do not update!") that I still have OtherOS. Secondly, he is directly responsible for the current PS3 jailbreak devices in the sense that they wouldn't exist without his work. They very obviously used a PS3 that had been hacked with Geohot's method when developing it. He created the scene. He did not "screw" it over. Sony's actions only proved that it wasn't worth his time but Sony is the only one to blame. Now we have Marcan's AsbestOS Linux with more hardware access than OtherOS ever had without Geohot's hack. Although others were more directly responsible and deserving of thanks, it's all ultimately thanks to Geohot.

    Sounds like some other app of yours. Pretty serious. You should investigate.

    A "buddy of yours?" Hmm... you refuse to use it but a "buddy" of yours takes a leap of faith and can't ask the questions himself? Very suspect.

    There are 2 stages to these jailbreaks. First is the bootrom exploit which gains root access. After this you need an iboot exploit or userland exploit to untether it.

    You are only partially right. Firstly, Jailbreakme did not use a bootrom exploit. The first part was a code elevation exploit using the Safari browser (the "PDF vulnerability"). Apple patched THAT part with 4.0.2. Because it was purely a userland exploit, the second part was the trick was for keeping it active in userland after a reboot, which Apple DID NOT PATCH. This is the one where you see a bit of corruption on the Apple logo splash screen due to the coders temporarily using the framebuffer to store/preserve their code. They did not patch it probably because they had already blocked the only exploit known to use it and they planned to patch it fully in the next major release (4.2, most likely). It was NOT a new exploit. Geohot expressed surprise that it even still worked. That is why it made sense to use.

    iBoot uses the same code base as Apple's current bootrom but can be updated, so an exploit in the bootrom and iBoot will not necessarily persist through reboots (tethered JB) once Apple fixes it in iBoot. Because Apple already fixed Geohot's new exploit in iBoot before he ever released it, it meant that they were going to fix it in future bootroms even if he NEVER released his JB. This is why it made sense to burn his exploit now and not SHAtter.
    #1210054 - Pastie

    "iBoot and bootrom are based on same code, and geohot says newer iBoots show his hole fixed (so next bootrom will be fixed too)".

    What is meant with this? Well, both iBoot and bootrom are based on the same code. Geohot found this vulnerability a while ago when both iBoot and bootrom contained the code that made them vulnerable. Likely, Apple noticed (by testing their own code) that iBoot and bootrom contained bad code. They fixed it in iBoot, but not in the bootrom (since it's read-only). Geohot noticed that the code was fixed in a later revisions of iBoot, so that hinted that the next bootrom (hardware) revision will contain the fix as well. iPad 2G and iPhone 5G will very likely not be vulnerable anymore for geohots bootrom exploit.

    That's pretty much why he wants to release *his* tool now, instead of the SHAtter exploit, so that SHAtter can be used for the next iOS devices.

    I hope this cleared things up.
    Comex's untether exploit was updated for iOS4.1, but it wasn't "new." It was the same.

    Okay First Geohot is not a hero, He is a thief, No new Exploit Just one stolen from comex, One given to Geo in confidence.
    First: Stop saying that. It isn't true. We've established that. You know it.

    Second, the brings me back to this:

    Hmm... you say this and then abuse the "Thanks!" button by "thanking" established untruths and insults. You just wanted to shut me up so you could ignore everything I said and keep trolling instead of listening to the truth.

    Quote Originally Posted by NessLookAlike View Post

    The ChronicDev team had been working on the jailbreak for a long time, bug tested it, made sure it worked with all devices, announced a release date, and had it good to go, but then Geohot dicked them over by releasing his exploit [purposely] a day before ChronicDev did. Due to the nature of "the business" and knowing that there are only a finite number of exploits for iDevices, ChronicDev is then forced to delay their release for god-only-knows-how-long and with no guarantee it will even WORK on future iDevices - and that sucks no matter how you cut it. I dunno how many of you are developers or how many of you could understand how much of a ***** move this was on Geohot's part, but imagine that you worked for MONTHS and MONTHS on something that

    1. you knew you wouldn't get paid for
    2. you relentlessly had to answer questions about from noobs
    3. you wanted to be 100% perfect at release date

    and imagine all of that work dashed in an instant by an egotistical little f*** who

    1. doesn't care about the community in the slightest
    2. wants money donations
    3. gives people no technical support at all and doesn't help noobs
    4. didn't care enough to completely bug test prior to release

    and you should understand what ChronicDev is going through.

    The facts:
    • ChronicDev is pissed right now, and for good reason
    • Geohot dicked over ChronicDev, purposely
    • Geohot wants money
    • Geohot is an egotistical little f***
    • Geohot released a buggy tool
    • limera1n does NOT jailbreak iPad with 4.2 beta iOS, unfortunately
    • As much as we are pleased to have and use limera1n now, we can still appreciate the work of the author but despise his personality

    Done, and done. That's all there is to it. Enjoy your limera1n jailbreaks, and /thread.
    Sorry, but you have several things exactly backwards. I'm sure you simply didn't know that Geohots exploit was already patched in 4.2's iBoot so it was already coming in the next bootrom while SHAtter was not yet patched and was the only one that made sense to keep for later. Once you understand that, you see that all the other motivations you listed are backwars, especially the one about not caring about the community and the one about bug testing... this was about releasing the exploit in beta form for the exploit's sake; it isn't ready for us to use and so we shouldn't really be using it. Holding that against him is just silly because he really had no choice if he wanted to protect SHAtter. Please understand that Chronic Dev was rushing their release to beat Geohot as well, it was just all "behind the scenes" and you only because aware of it after they announced a release date.

    So the dev team had to postpone and use geohotz version of greenpoison. And limera1n is still very buggy.

    EDIT: I guess the only good geohotz did was hide the more stable jailbreak from Apple and made Apple fix his version.
    Don't forget, Geohot's exploit was already patched in 4.2's iBoot which meant that it was already going to be patched in the next bootrom. SHAtter was not yet patched. If only SHAtter were released, they would BOTH be patched in the next bootrom. That's why Geohot suddenly had to beat SHAtter to the field so that they would hold it despite GP being at the final stages. Also, GP wasn't quite as close as people think. Granted, it was a lot closer, hence them being resistant/hesitant to accept Geohot's exploit, but the release date was more because of the behind-the-scenes race with Geohot than anything else. Neither would have been released this weekend otherwise.

But, my hats off to the Dev team for stepping out of the "limelight" for respect to all of us users and Geohot. They are wise for waiting on applying this exploit. And jailbreaking shouldn't be used for piracy, only unlocking the abilities that apple restricts. Thanks for your posts.
    Actually, no. That was the whole point. If Geohot waited, BOTH exploits would have been patched in he next bootrom. iBoot is based on the bootrom code and it was already fixed in 4.2's iBoot, so Apple already knew about Lime's exploit and Green's would have made them aware of both even if Geohot never released anything. I wish he would have explained this when releasing it but I guess he's a busy man and isn't doing much to protect his image despite his reputation for being a big ego.

    why would you want to wait for GP when limera1n works flawlessly?
    One man team done it again, talking about running in circles around the *other guys*

    Thanked 30 Times in 24 Posts

    worked fine for me on iphone 4 via Parallels for mac 6 using windows 7. I saw someone say it didn't work with fusion. So for mac owners who have bootcamp or parallels, worked great.

    For those having the no icon problems, if during the jailbreak process you don't see the Limera1n image on your iphone screen(think apple logo on reboot) it did not run successfully. Even if the status box says it is jailbroken, you will need to run it again. Think my problem was I had the automatically open itunes when connected disabled so itunes was not running in the background. On my iPhone 4 4.1 I had to run it 4 times for it to work, the 4th time I manually opened itunes in the background and it worked.

    For those with more knowledge than I, I am jailbroken with Beta 2 version. Geo is now up to version 4, I'm not sure what the respring fix is on his changelog and the rest seems to be either different phone fix or icon removal, neither of which concerns me. Is there anything different for the iPhone 4 4.1 from beta 4 that was not in beta 2? If so, can I safely just download the newest version and overwrite my current JB without having to do a fresh restore and redownload everything from cydia?

    geohot is the man, once again he did it. I knew he wasn't going to just quit like that. Thanks man. Limera1n worked like a charm, no problems here at all. Now I can't wait for the unlock to come out for BB 02.10.04

    I think this is the first time I can honestly say that unfortunately I only use a mac.

    I'm patiently waiting though.
    Beta 4 is out for mac as well
