Greenpois0n was due to be released on the 10th of October so it was a big surprise to everyone when GeoHot released their new jailbreaking tool called Limera1n. GeoHot is responsible for developing blackra1n so we can expect great this from Limera1n.GeoHot stated on their official website and on the iPhone Dev Team’s Blog that Limera1n is a bootrom level jailbreak too and it works on the iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and the iPad. It can also technically work with the Apple TV 2G as well. What’s worth noting, is the fact that Limera1n does not rely on the SHAtter exploit which is good news when you consider the amount of iDevices this jailbreak works on. Limera1n uses a different bootrom based exploit and this is why it can do so much.

More Information About Limera1n
Limera1n is currently in beta release and this means that it is now fully stable and there may be some bugs to be ironed out.

If you are feeling adventurous and you don’t have time to wait around for the final version of this tool to be released you can go ahead and download and use the Limera1n tool. Before you rush ahead and do this here is some things that you need to know about the Limera1n tool.

• Limera1n is a jailbreak tool only and it won’t unlock your phone. If you currently rely on ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone then you are advised not to upgrade to iOS 4.1 just yet. The iPhone Dev Team is working on an upgrade for the PwnageTool jailbreak that will allow you to upgrade to iOS 4.1 without changing your baseband.

• Limera1n only works on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G running the iOS 4.1. It will also work on the iPad that is running the iOS 3.2.2. If you have an iPhone 3G you will need to use the Redsn0w jailbreak tool.

• Limera1n is an untethered jailbreak tool.
• Limera1n is only avialable for Windows users at the moment and GeoHot are working on a Mac and Linux version which will be released at a later date.

• Limera1n does not support the beta version of iOS so if you are running this on your iDevice this jailbreak tool won’t work.

• There is one known bug that has been identified. If Cydia does not appear on your iDevice after running Limera1n you need to reboot your device.

On another note I want to say that with the launch of Limerea1n it means that Greenpois0n will no longer be released.

According to the iPhone Dev Team the launch of Limera1n has averted the burning of 2 bootrom holes at one and that releasing SHAtter at this time would be a complete waste and they will now wait until Apple closes Limera1n’s hole.

Use Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 to Jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G on iOS 4.1

If you have the final version of the iOS 4.1 on your iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G you will be delighted to hear that you can now jailbreak these devices with Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 even if you operate your PC on Windows. The previous version of Redsn0w 0.9.6 was only available for Mac OS X users but the iPhone Dev-Team have done some work on this tool and in its latest release you have Windows built in.

This latest release of Redsn0w is still in beta for the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G using iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.0. It does how use the same pwnage2 DFU mode exploit but you should note that it does not include the SHAtter exploit that has been developed by pod2g. With this jailbreak there is nothing new being revealed to Apple either which is good news.

There is something that I should point out for anyone wishing to use the Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 jailbreak and that is that if you have an MC model of the iptg2 the jailbreak on your iOS 4.1 will be tethered. This is unfortunate but you can rollback to a FW supported version by using jailbreakme.com or spiritjb.com.

If you currently have and rely on an unlocked iPhone 3G then you are advised not to use this tool because you will lose your Ultrasn0w unlock forever. The Redsn0w tool will jailbreak your iPhone 3G on the iOS 4.1 but in doing this it also updates your baseband to 05.14.02 which is currently unlockable with the current version of Ultrasn0w so you need to be careful if you decide to use Redsn0w.

If you haven’t unlocked your iPhone and you want to jailbreak it then the Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 with Windows built in is the perfect solution.
