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.
- Jailbreak iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 With Limera1n RC1 Beta 2
- Jailbreak iPod Touch 3G, 4G iOS 4.1 With Limera1n
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.
