Limera1n Jailbreak for iOS 4.1 Devices: Better than GreenPois0n

We have some exciting news for 3rd generation iPhone and iPod Touch users now, as iPhone hacker Geohot has returned with a brand new jailbreak called LimeRa1n, which he is claiming will jailbreak ALL iOS 4.1 devices.

According to this report from RedmondPie, Geohot has created a new bootrom exploit for LimeRa1n, meaning that the new version will support the iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPod Touch 3G, along with the new iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.

If you didn’t know, Geohot seemingly quit the jailbreak scene a few months ago, deleting his Twitter account as well – so this is definitely a surprise for everyone – including the Chronic Dev-Team who will be releasing GreenPois0n on Sunday.

For those who have doubts, LimeRa1n has already been confirmed by both the iPhone and Chronic Dev-Teams. We’ll bring you more details on this shortly. Give us your reaction to the news.

This is great news, Greenpois0n was sounding so great till the last minute and it was only for 4G models. Still thou thumbs up to the teams for working on this. Being a 3G owner it was disappointing, but when one door closed another will open and in steps Geohot. Hope this all works.

hmm, really???

Maybe we have to wait some time, I think, if this is come true, then I can run flash on my devices on the go without the help of iFunia video converter to do the video converting too? Well, Im a totally movies fan, and always get some flash videos from internet or somewhere.

Hope really do work, this is make sense, isn’t it???!!!

I believe it will be a jailbreak because it is a botrom exploit

hateit

yes permanent and both greenpois0n and limera1n is using the same boot exploit found by comex to make both programs a untethered jailbreak! hurray! the bad part is they are burning two exploits at once so expect it to be harder for next gen devices ie, iphone 5 ipad 2 and ipod touch 5 etc2

Rob

My understanding is it will still use the same userland jailbreak as greenpoison, so will be unterthered!

Adam Bushell

untethered jailbreak?

Well once I heard that Greenpois0n was not going to unlock 3g or 3gs, huge let down, as I just got a 3gs that came pre-loaded with 4.0.2 and no way of jailbreaking or unlocking.,
But now, if I'm reading correctly, there will be a program to jailbreak non iphone 4 phones?

LIMERA1N? WELL IF GEOHOT IS BEHIND IT, IT'S GOT MY FULL SUPPORT! BETTER LATE THAN NEVER I SAY.
