Limera1n Jailbreak for iOS 4.1 Beta 3 Released

We recently reported that Geohot has released the latest untethered jailbreak called Limera1n for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod touch 3G and iPod touch 4G for all versions of the iOS 4.x (iOS 4.0, 4.1 and future versions)

The jailbreak is currently available only for Windows users however, the Mac and Linux versions will be released soon. The current version of Limera1n is still a beta release and Geohot recently updated the change log which fixes some of the initial issues being faced by users:

BETA1 – first release
BETA2 – fixed kernel patching magic, rerun BETA2+ over BETA1
BETA3 – fixed new bootrom 3GS

The latest version of Limera1n also exposes new known issues:

need to restart to get the Cydia icon to show up after installing Cydia
some people still don’t have windows
beta iOS versions aren’t supported
uninstall in limera1n app doesn’t work, you can just delete the blackra1n.app directory, i need regression testing
iPod Touch 2G support coming soon
for 3G, use redsn0w
limera1n app is a white box, i know. use it anyway

Greenpois0n was expected to release today but now The Dev Team plans to implement Limera1n exploit into Greenpois0n and this could take longer than expected which could result in further delay.

Users are already reporting success with jailbreaking their device using Limera1n. Since the released version is still a bit unstable so you might want to wait for a stable version or get the Greenpois0n jailbreak tool when it is made available.

UPDATE: Beta 4 has been released – uninstall fixed, respring fixedish

  • Gaurav Verma

    Worked for me on iPhone4 iOS 4.0.2 and baseband 01.59.. may be I can try it on iPAD later….. One has to keep cool head as it did worked for me on the first time only….. I actualy uninstalled and tested again with 5-6 tries (shows status “Retry:”) it again worked. If one is not waiting for Greenpios0n then Limera1n is the answer……. go guys unlock your devices using Limera1n…

  • Vincerg

    Does anyone know how to unlocked to work on T-mobile ??? ultrasnow is not working. limera only jailbreaks but does not unlocked. thanks.

    • Gaurav Verma

      Once you see limera1n icon on the springboard…. you need to install Cydia.. (The link is available in the Limera1n application on iPhone)……. To install cydia first you will require to connect to an wifi, so that the device has internet connectivity……

      now the steps, post you are connected to the internet,….
      1. Open Limerain on your iPhone
      2. Click on the link where “Cydia” is written. Note: in absense of internet connectivity the button will show an expection/error message.
      3. Post installation of cydia, go to Packages -> Edit -> Add & Enter http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com
      4. Now Goto sources and install Ultrasn0w
      5. Device will restart and you have got the device JAILBREAKED…

      • Vincerg

        I have done all that, but ultrasn0w does not work yet for iphones running 4.1 firmware. I Update the firmware on itunes. Any other sugestions ???

    “Greenpois0n was expected to release today but now The Dev Team plans to implement Limera1n exploit into Greenpois0n and this could take longer than expected which could result in further delay.”

    Umm no, the Chronic Dev Team plans to implement the limera1n exploit into greenpois0n, considering it’s their software. The Dev Team doesn’t do every single thing in the jailbreak scene.
