Limera1n Jailbreak: iOS 4.1 Problems after Download?

By Updated on

As we told you just a few hours ago, iPhone hacker Geohot has once again surprised us all by releasing Limera1n ahead of schedule, more importantly – earlier than GreenPois0n. However, some of you appear to be having problems with Limera1n after installing, as confirmed on the official Limera1n website.

If you haven’t tried installing the Limera1n jailbreak for your iOS 4.1 device yet, you can do so by obtaining the download over at Geohot’s website here.

While the download notes says that this will jailbreak all devices on iOS 4.1, it looks as if there is a known problem when trying to install Limera1n on the iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.1. This has been confirmed by Geohot himself with the following message:

”3GS new bootrom is broken, fix pending”

For those of you who are having problems, hold on as we’re sure Geohot is working on a quick fix for you. The good news however, is that Limera1n appears to be working flawlessly on the iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1.

If you have any problems during or after installation, let us know in the comments section.

    Limera1n works flawlessly, Thank you Geohot for this wonderful jailbreak tool. That will teach the other mother #@#!@ not to screw with us.

    • Darcy

      Hi can any one help me. I have a iPod touch 3G 8gb and I can not get it to work . Any tips?

      • James10101

        You have to have iTunes open the whole time you r doing the jailbreak

    • gEOHOT


      • ryleeee(:

        SAMEEEE!!!! :O I’ve spent all day trying to figure this damn thing out

  • Carter

    I tried using Limera1n on my ipod touch 3G, but for some reason after it says the jailbreak is done, the limera1n symbol doesn't show up like in other videos i have seen. And when I turn it on there is no limera1n icon to download cydia.

    any advice?

    • caretiger

      Same problem here. I tried 3 times but the limera1n icon still doesn't appear on my ipod touch 3G.

      • dsgd

        Ye I tried 4 times and that didn't help either

    • Samuel

      Same problem, can we get a fix?

      • franky

        use greenposi0n if limera does not work

    • Josh Miller

      The icon doesn't show up at all or it just shows as a white box? It is a known bug that it just shows as a white box. Use it anyway, it works fine.

    • Meh.

      right, found out. when it says release the power button, do it. but do not release the home button until the message comes up that the jailbreak is done.

      • speck

        This worked perfectly! Thank you!

      • brandon

        how long did u have to hold the home button for?

      • touchxl3

        That didn't work for me and i did hold the home button

    • Bill

      I have the same problem when I first started,
      I fix this by changing limera1n to compatiblity mode Window XP sp3, then run the program with administrator mode. I am done. Jailbroken.

    • evaneto

      same her. geohot said it would work on all devices but it he better fix this.i think
      geohot was a little bit inconsiderate saying that it would jailbreak all devices and it didnt
      he probably rushed him self to get it out earlier then greenpois0n and made a mistake.
      i know he is trying to help but come on man thats so unprofessional. sorry but its true :(

      • Manu

        Why are you calling this unprofessional? did he charge you for his program? did he make you? he doesn't even have ads on his site! it is so nice of him to help us out and all you do is calling him unprofessional…jerk.

    • Justin

      Me too… ive tried so many time ! what do i do now?

    • Fritz

      I'm having the exact same problem, tried a few times but nothing.

    • Dwight

      EXACTLY the same problem

  • Scuba

    Not working for me – iPhone 4 iOS 4.1… hope Chronic Dev Team's solution is a winner…

    • HoneyB

      hope too!

    • Remy Marietti

      Works fine for me iphone 4 iOS4.1

  • Juan Ruiz

    ok and how unlocked after that

  • micah

    ipad on fw 3.2.2, limera1n not working also, no cydia icon, but according to program jailbreak was completed

    • coollooc

      The restart of DFU will help, make attempt it

    • Rob

      same obeservation here on ipad-3.2.2, tried again and even restarted a few times. Has anyone got this to work on ipad-3.2.2?

    • tarpediem

      same problem here with ipad 3.2.2

    • Guest

      I was having the same problem with iPad 16GB WiFi running os 3.2.2. I had just updated itues to 10.1, I rolled itunes back to just plain old 10.0 and voila, it worked. The limera1n icon was just showing as a white box on my springboard but it still worked when clicking on it. I was able to download cydia and then when I went back to my springboard the green raindrop was showing as it should. Working flawlessly. Good luck!

  • Baldilocks

    It works perfectly on 4.1 on an iPhone 4 if you follow the directions. If you don' follow the directions don't expect results.

    • lemonra1n


  • jim

    on my iP4 4.1, im having cydia errors, that i cannot add or load any source at all, i tried restore and jailbreak again but it giv me another error and nothing loaded as well

    • @Scarecrowmac

      this has been a cydia related problem
      some wifi's arent good enough for cydia
      try complete upgrading cydia then try sources
      if it wont work go to a faster wifi

      • gfdsgf

        not true. my wifi is fine and i still can't add a single source. it's this crappy jb.

  • Ezee

    I have upgraded my iPhone 4 to firmware 4.1amd baseband to02.10.04

    Will limera1n help me out

    • 702


  • Anis

    i confirm Limera1n is working perfectly on my 3gs 4.1 thank you geohot

  • Trimond

    Getting error downloading cydia on ipt3 4.1
    Error: Error Domain=NSURLErrorDomainCode=-1001 "the request times out." UserInfo=0x173b30

  • Frank

    for all those having problem not seeing limera1n icon on their pages. rerun the program and wailt a little longer before releasing the home button. Just about seeing the exploit message. I've done it the second time in this method and it really works!

    iPhone 4, 4.1

    • limera1n

      NOT FOR ALL… tried multiple times and various timings into and out of DFU and still no raindrop nor limecons after the iPhone 4 with clean restore of 4.1 boots up.

      • tann1e

        If you have more than one computer, try the same process on another computer. It may just work fine on another computer. Same problem happened 3 times with me yesterday, and same solution. Good luck!

    • DJS

      Keeping the home button depressed till the exploit message worked for me. Installed Cydia after, but didn't show up. Powered down, cydia was there and working fine!

    • leo

      It didnt help my i still have no limera1n drop on my iphone 3gs 4.0.2

    • steve

      wow thanks mate id done the break about 6 times with no luck and then bamm your comment caught my eye thanks so much mate and to the host of this forum thanks…

  • Tim

    iPhone 4 with 4.1, tried it 3 times and no limera1n icon.

    • tann1e

      Try it on another computer. good luck

  • John

    I tried jailbreaking my ip4 on 4.1 firmware using limera1n.

    After all jailbreak process no limera1n app installed.

    What a fake and disappointment

    Gottu wait 4 Greenpoison perhaps


      No the OP is right. I had the same problem, but you need to keeping holding onto the home button until the message pops up on your computer that it is jailbroken. It will work. Then your phone will show the limera1n symbol. turn back on and the icon should be there.

  • Labargoth

    It is working on iPod 3G. It’s Not working with your devices because there is no iPod 3G with 8GB. It’s a iPod 2G

    • Guy

      This guy is right. I googled and found out that our so called 3G iPod Touch 8g are actually just 2G.

    • Nyimtse

      Thank you for pointing that out. I just checked and confirmed your information.

  • jgalt5

    if you want to see cydia icon , all you do is after you have installed limera1n click on it, install cydia, then do a hard reset, then when you have done this, cydia will appear!!


    many thanks to geohot!! please donate to support his skills!

    • lemonra1n

      WOW THANK YOU…. any solutions to clicking on limera1n when it is not there?????

  • angry_3gs_owner

    Works like charm on my 5.14 4.1 3GS :)
    NOW, HOW DO I UNLOCK IT!!!?!??!?!?

    • chris

      how?? limera1n on mine just opens a black screen then goes back to homescreen.

  • Ahmed

    i have installed limera1n on windows xp but when i connect my fone it says waiting for device, what are the system requirements to run this jailbreak

    • Terry

      having exact same problem on 2 different xp machines.
      does not find device, but asks what to do with my devices pictures when i connected usb cable – so the computer sees the phone

      • dave

        same itts really pissing me off!!! and there seems to be no support , i shudav waited till i done it before making a donation of £20. !!! mad right now !!!

  • shtofff

    but when I'm trying to access it via my PC i can access there !!! and even download the "cydia.tgz" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    what am i missing here ????

    • shtofff

      OK…. finally i succeed !!!!!!!! i went to the near PUB used their WIFI … and boom !!!
      i was able to download cydia on the first time !!!
      other solution is to try to download the cydia to your PC and install it "offline" mode…

      • TheSalooN

        After jailbreaking I am stuck with the same time out therefore not letting me install Cydia. Is a manual install an option on an Ipad as well (there's no Installer)?

    • David

      I'm having the same problem,
      I have an iPod Touch 3g 4.1,
      I tested my WiFi with (the iPhone app) and I get:
      44ms ping, 7.37Mbps download and 0.95Mbps upload
      what's wrong here?

    • Antonio

      Thanks for the insight. I have the same problem that you described earlier and tried a different WiFi and still stuck. My limera1n icon is solid white and Cydia gets the message you described before. Any other solutions you have come across? Thanks,

      • ash11b

        I have the same problem. The limera1n icon is solid white and Cydia gives the request timed out message as described. Did you solve this? Anybody knows whats the problem ?

    • Samsung

      looks like wifi problem, try using 3g network. I had similar problem and i switched off wifi and downloaded using 3g network, all good now.

  • Oskar

    Don't know yet but it seems like it's working perfectly on my Iphone 3Gs 4.1 iOS and it has never been jailbreaked before or anything, new bootrom as far as i know :)

  • chris

    installed it on 3gs 4.1 with new bootrom but when i click limera1n on homescreen it loads a black screen with a red apple for about 3 seconds then returns to home screen…..

  • Felix

    It is not working in my iPod touch 3G 4.1
    No Limera1n symbol at all..

    • Meh.

      When the limera1n says release the power button, release it. Then dont let go of the home button until the jailbreak is completely finished.

      • marsh

        i have a 2g but that hold the home thing does not work

  • Brian

    Installed last night on Ipod touch 3G OS4.1, nothing appear after limera1n said done, did hard reboot and everything was there waiting to go. Geohot thanks a million.

  • Jason

    What an awesome exploit!!! /s

    I have run this 4 times now on my ipad 3.2.2, does not do anything, just tells you everything worked perfectly after install and to power on ipad, but nothing changed. No Cydia icon, even after powering off and powering on half a dozen times…

    Hey Geohot, how about you QC your software before you rush it to the market and screw everyone over. Not only did you screw greenpois0n over, but you also screwed your fanbase by releasing an exploit that does not work.

    Has ANYONE with a 3.2.2 iPad been successful?!?!

    • hiwind

      Same problem here.. The exploit says 'done' but the limera1n icon does not appear on my device.. Tried it on iPad 3.2.2 and iPod 4g 4.1.

    • 7amoodi

      it worked with me on my ipad ..
      but guess wat .. i tried to do the same thing to my friend's ipad it didnt work ..

      it gives me everything is done but no ra1n icon .. no cydia ..

      really we need a help on this 1 ..

  • alex

    no limera1n icon after running the program>ipod touch 4g 4.1

  • Jay

    On iPhone 4 and like many others no Limera1n icon or Cydia. Needs to be fixed.

  • leo

    its not working for ipad 3.2.2

  • ruiiz

    my iphone 3gs ios 4.1 is not charging after jailbreaking.. what should i do?


    Not working on iPad running 3.2.2. No lime logo but states successful. On. Restart no lime app to download cydia.

  • Gen

    It is working like a charm on my 16gb iPad wifi, after it says completed you have to reboot one or 2 times to see the cydia icon

  • Jay1

    This will not work for anyone using Windows XP on iPhone 4. Just ran Limera1n using Windows Vista and it's worked fine.

  • mike d

    if you have an iphone 3gs old bootrom and limra1n is not working what you have to do is restore it with itunes. after the restore close itunes (dont activate phone), and run limera1n. it should tthen work.

  • Romz

    guys it actually works. as commented on top when releasing power button keep holding home button untill you see limera1n image on the iphone

  • Joefr

    Same for me: iPad 3.2.2, process ok but no rain icon after

  • sean

    ipod touch 4:
    worked like a charm…
    but no facetime working and no ifile

  • Francisco Manuel Fernández Cano

    Just like many other people, I connect, enter recovery mode, enter DFU mode, exploiting… Everything OK… Except that "Everyhing OK" means "Nothing happens"

    iPhone 4 (4.1) running limera1n in a windows vista machine, a windows XP SP3 machine and a virtual XP machine running inside Mac OS…

    I bet I can do a programs working exactly like this one, but running over WiFi or brain waves…

  • omar

    After jailbreak, cydia is working fine, but I am not able to install application throught ITUNES… i do have some application on my hard drive, I want to install the, but I am not able….. any one can help ?

    • Mjksoft

      You have to install installus

  • mel

    Worked fine for me (or so it seems) on a 3g iPod Touch.

    @jgalt5 thanks for the tip about rebooting after installing cydia.

  • Hunter

    No success here on iPad 3.2.2. The limera1n exploit says that the jailbreak was successful, but no Cydia nor limera1n icon. Tried 3 times. Doesn't work! Any ideas?

  • DJ KG

    I have an iPhone 4 (got launch day and only updated to 4.0.1, but I don't know the baseband; I don't really care because I'm using AT&T… just not sure if it's necessary to know). I updated (not restored) to 4.1 and ran limera1n; The process completed successfully, and I turned on my phone. I clicked the limera1n app (white icon) and the app opens, I can see the raindrop in the red circle at the top, but then the app crashes. I tried re-running the limera1n program on my computer 3 times and all I get is a crashing app….. Any thoughts?

    • Fabio Smusmu Smulian


  • Tjoez

    Same with my ipad 3.2.2, fresh 32gb/3G one.
    Install went fine, after that, no white icon, no limera1n icon, …

    Come on George
    I don't want ra1n, I want thund3r :-)

    Will wait…

    1. I have an iPhone 3GS wirh iOS4.1 and cannot get Limera1n to work. I've tried releasing Home button when Exploiting message appears, when Done message appears, but so far no Limera1n app icon appears on the homescreen. Before this, I had 3.1.2 with blackra1n jailbreak working fine.

    2. I have also re-restored the iOS 4.1 without letting iTunes to activate the phone, I applied the Jailbreak with no sucess.

    3. I can always get the DONE message and the phone boots normally.

    4. I cannot tell you wether it is a old or new bootrom. Some help would be great so I can give you this info.

    Any suggestions?

And I only tested this on one phone and everyone else seems to get this to work. Sorry if it doesn’t work for everyone

  • danny


    • steve

      try plugging it into another usb plug and start itunes and restore, then start your jailbreak process all over again.

  • Rob

    hi, i have an iphone 4 on 4.1, on the old cydia-jailbreak, the program to install apps was called installous, does anyone know what the new one is called? because i cannot find it anywhere

  • howie

    having a serious problem with getting the sms bubbles to change colors. dont know what im doing wrong. have the same apps as I had before when i had my Iphone 4 jailbroke and they worked fine but now nothing is working right with jailbreak.

  • Fahoodi

    I found the fix for not finding limera1n after trying to jailbreak. Do these steps and you will get your jailbreak:-
    1-Back up you phone through Itunes.
    2-Update to the lates firmwear 4.1
    3-Jailbreak your phone befor you restor from your back-up.
    4-Download Cydia.
    5-Restore back from your back-up.

    That all
    Good luck to you all & have fun with the jailbreak :)

  • Rawr

    I've tried jailbreaking my iPod Touch, (4.1, 3g). About 5 times, with lime, of course.
    Lime opens, runs, I hold down the buttons, release, it goes info dfu, it says done.
    Everything goes smoothly, but then when I go to the home screen, theres no limera1n icon, I have tried restarting, & hard rebooting. What to do?
    Please help?x:

  • Nate

    I tried it on my iphone 4 4.1. When I was told to hold power and home and then release power my phone went black. I'm trying to restore now but keep getting an error from itunes. 1004. Does that mean anything to anyone? I'm using windows XP and I don't think I was using it as Administrator.

    • Aaron (isquaddevteam)

      Use tinyumbrella or reboot to kick out of recovery. 1004 is fine it means your baseband is different than what’s meant for your firmware.

    Ok, I'm not smart at all when it comes to this stuff but, when I download Limera1n and release the power button like it says to, it stays stuck in DFU mode. How long do I have to wait? and do I keep holding the home button?

  • Lewis Magers

    I've tried countless times to get limera1n to work on my ipod touch 2g 4.1. It does not work at all. need suggestions here

  • chris

    I just downloaded and installed, the phone seems to work great!

  • Aaron (isquaddevteam)

    Check my previous post about how to fix this problem. It’s worked for three that we know and probably more

  • MANiAC^tR

    Just tried the latest Limera1n RC1b and still no results with my iphone 3GS and iOS4.
    The limera1n app doesn't show up on the iphone's homescreen.


  • 7amoodi

    just download Limera1n RC1b and try again … WORKED 2 TIMES WITH ME on my iPad ..

    PS: not the BETA !!

  • josephine

    i have an ipos 3g 8gb vith 4.1 installed (don't give a crap about that people say that it's not a 3g, it is! (: anyways, i have the same problem as MANY others, and i wonder if anyone else with an ipod touch 8gb 3 generation (MC model) has been able to see the limera1n icon and if anyone has been able to complete the jailbreak (with an ipod touch 8gb 3 generation)
    If ANYONE would answer i'd be very grateful!

  • Joey

  • Rob

    I jailbroke my Ipod Touch 3G 64GB with Limera1n with no problem about 20 minutes after it was released…..but now, I just tried to jailbreak my sisters 8GB ipod touch 3G and it says its done, but nothing comes up for limera1n to download cydia, and yes i had Itunes open, ive also tried the greenpois0n release and it fails everytime…….from what i can tell is that apple patched it completely in a mini update without a full release update, and failed to mention it, i noticed the update yesterday myself when i restored and updated the 8gb touch from 3.1.3 to 4.1

  • Eddie

    I tried it on a 3G, it says press home b+power b…. then release power b which I did, kept it pressed for a long time, tried 5 or 6 diff times, now it did something to where my iphone is on connect to itunes mode and I can't even restore it… comes up with an error message. any ideas??????? i think my iphone is dead :(

  • ShAdY

  • erik

    Tried on an Ipad 3.2.2. Successfully installed Cydia. However, when I clicked on cydia, it said reorganizing and show an apple and a loading sign and soon after jumped to the home screen.

    Cydia is not reorganizing…and it kept on jumping to the home screen when I click on it.

  • Keith

  • Alex King

    I Applied Limera1n on 3GS and I lost my Wifi & GSM Phone oparation. what should I do

  • joshua

    im having trouble downloading limera1n onto my 3gs phone. it gets into dfu mode then wont do anything else

  • William

    To jailbreak you must have itunes opened! Download limera1n then open it. A message will say “make it rain” click it then it will tell you instructions to hold sleep and home. Keep holding it until you get the next instructions. After limera1n will be installed onto the iphone. It has no icon. Click it and install cydia

    Dont jailbreak with iphone!!!!

    You will have no service on the phone!!!!

    • az19

      ok i did, now i have no service, what do i do?

  • David

    I get to step 4 where is says release power button and I do that and nothing happens after that. What should I try now? I have tried unplugging and plugging it back in and it says to retry pressing home and power button again. After I do that it says release power button and I do and nothing!
    Please help! Tried this like 4 times now
