Jailbreak your iPhone

GeoHot is Back With Limera1n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak


Vrooooom and GeoHot is back with a bang. Yesterday we told you that Chronic Dev team is going to release their most awaited Greenpois0n jailbreak. Down point of Greenpois0n is that it supports iPhone 4, iPod touch 4 and iPad only. Means no jailbreak for iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPod Touch 2G, 3G.


GeoHot released limera1n just before greenpois0n release. Follow our guides with instructions and download links.


Today GeoHot updated limera1n.com with an image saying thousand words itself. A while ago, we reported that George Hotz a.k.a GeoHot , had registered a domain name for Limera1n (check here). Featuring its own place on the Internet, complete with the raindrop icon. Raindrop is now linked to an image (posted below) featuring all Apple devices: iPhone 3G, 4G iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad 4 with the symbol of limera1n.


Things we know so far regarding Limera1n :

  • This does not use SHAtter exploit.
  • This uses at least one bootrom-level exploit and at least one firmware-based exploit (e.g. LLB, iBoot, Kernel) like the initial release of greenpois0n.
  • Chronic Dev knows about this exploit.

TheiPhoneWiki says the timing impact of this jailbreak release will have major negative consequences on everyone, especially since this jailbreak IS patchable. If this jailbreak is released, the holes used in it might be needlessly burned, seeing as how greenpois0n is expected to be released the day before limera1n.


Twitter reactions from iPhone hackers :

StealthBravo: geohot’s return is no joke. He is back and is going to release limera1n unless someone talks him out of it.
P0sixninja: We’ll use Geohot’s exploit if they can implement it in time; however, they will not change the release date.
P0sixninja: We are not changing our release date. If we can implement @geohots before 10/10 we will use that, otherwise we’re using ours. #roadblocks

MuscleNerd: I do think it would be wise to hold one back, but I don’t think that’s going to happen
MuscleNerd: As dramatic as geohot’s last-minute all-device JB is, still a shame that two bootrom holes will be burned at once.

    Hey guys,
    I have jailbroken my iphone 4, os 4.1. The factory version was 4.0.2, so I finally got the jailbreak, which works perfectly, but the thing is, I can’t get anySim on it.. Hacktivation Patch is only up to 4.0.1, and I have this phone for 2 weeks just laying on my table, can anyone tell me if it is possible to get anySim(unlock) for the 4.1? Thank You

    Hi you guys, I have an ipad running on OS 3.2.2, and it worked, I tried it first and it was not working, if that is happening with you, just keep itunes running as you are jailbreaking the ipad.

    Appreciate your effort GeoHot. respect and keep them coming.
