    People if Limera1n says it installed then it worked.

    For cydia you just have to start the Limera1n app and there install cydia…afterwards you can remove the Limera1n app.

  33. Sciencetor2 October 16, 2010 Reply

    People it may be tat u are misidentifying your ipod, if the model number on the back of your ipod is A1288 then im sorry but ur ipod is 2g and u will have to wait for 2g support or use sn0wbreeze or redsn0w, which support 2g 4.1 but are a bit more difficult to use, although completely successful on the 4 ipods ive used them on so far

  34. SpikeTimmons October 16, 2010 Reply

    I used limera1n on two different IPT’s 1. a 32gig 3g and the other an 8gig 3g both MC models. On the 8 gig it says it worked but no limera1n was installed. I have tried over and over again. The 32gig took about 10-15 tries and timing it just right and it finally got past the retey hold power and home. I also tried greenpoison on the 8gig. Totaly froze it up. The ought I had a brick until I plugged it in and itunes restord it. Guess I will keep waiting on a working jailbreak. Not sure why limera1n would say that it worked when it really didn’t lol.

  36. Hazel October 14, 2010 Reply

    Here’s how I got it to work on my iPod touch 3g after trying a dozen times:

    2. then run limera1n and follow the instructions.

    finally got the limera1n logo after doing this. Goodluck!
