Limera1n By Geohot: Download iPhone 4.1 Jailbreak Instructions

Earlier today it had been assumed that Limera1n by Geohot would be released on October 11th, one day after the GreenPois0n jailbreak from the Chronic Dev-Team, However, in a strange twist the former is now live and ready for download.

We can already see by the number of tweets from @chronicdevteam that they do not seem too happy to be beaten with a jailbreak for iOS 4, which unlike GreenPois0n supports all models of the iPhone, iPod Touch, as well as the Apple iPad.

Limera1n is currently only available for Windows, which you can download by going to the official limera1n website. Mac and Linux versions will be coming soon.

Once you hit the download for windows link you will then have the choice to open or save a text.doc file, from there you will be given full instructions. Let us know how you got on.

Ok. I downloaded the jailbreak from limera1n.com for windows. I ran it and followed the steps in order that they appered. Then I restarted my ipod and there is no app that says limera1n. I have restored my ipod to 4.1 then tried to jailbreak it…No icon showed,not even after a reboot.

Worked on my new iPhone 4 with 4.1 already installed. The number one thing to do is dont rush it. when you hit make it rain follow the prompts of the little box. 2 things i would add, 1st when you make it rain wait fr the app to tell you to push home and power buttons and no2 when it says release power button still hold down the home button until it is finished. After it is complete I rebooted before i clicked the limera1 icon which then installed cydia, I then rebooted after every installation. again the biggest… Read more »

it works both on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS with 4.1. Just Minty mentioned, follow his steps and on screen instruction. It will get the limera1n installed. After that you need to have some internet connection so I used the wi-fi free spot to get the internet connection first. Once you have the interconnection launch the limera1n program by tap on that. It will ask you to install Cydia program for jailbreak. Wonderful and I have the 4.1 for long time now I am free now bye bye to AT&T.

To those who did'nt get Cydia after installation, REBOOT your device. Not Respring or etc etc. Works perfectly fine for me with iPhone 4 & 3GS running on 4.1.

Hi everyone,

Thanks god for line ra1n and many thanks to geohots for this amazing jailbreak tool which takes 5 min max. For those whom experienced some difficulties, please do as you instruct with jailbreaking you device, then after the process is done, the limera1n icon will appear white, tap it and install cydia, then switch off the device and welcome to your jailbroken device.

once again big shout to GeoHots, and goodluck for the dev-team in the approximately 9 hours.

Peace
