Geohot has released his Limera1n jailbreak for iOS devices. We will be posting tutorials on how to use it shortly. Currently, it is Windows only.

Remember if you require an unlock do not upgrade to iOS 4.1, you will need to wait for the next PwnageTool release. The only exception is the iPhone 4 which could be upgraded to iOS 4.1 without updating the baseband.

● iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G
● 3GS new bootrom is broken, fix pending
● 4.0-4.1 and beyond+++

Keep checking back for our tutorials which will be posted momentarily.

iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 (Windows)
iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G (Windows)

According to MuscleNerd: "SHAtter will be held back now, so it's not the worst possible scenario. Who knows, maybe SHAtter can even be improved."

Update x2:
The third version of Limera1n is out now. It fixes a bug with the iPhone 3GS on the new bootrom.

I have an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1 unlocked for tmobile. After I jailbroke with limerain I lost my facetime. I tried facebreak and 3G unrestricter and no luck. FaceTime was working for me when I had iOS 4.0.1 but not anymore. Anyone have any ideas how to fix. This??

Ip 4, out-of-box, 4.0.2 - BB 01.59.00 successfully JB by limera1n, and unlocked by using ultrasn0w. SHSH was saved by using TinyUmbrella Future plan: will wait for PW to be released will use Tinyumbrella to update 4.1 without changing BB will use PW to jailbreak again, then ultrasn0w to unlock. <-- does this look okey ? Thank you for all the hard work.

My iPhone 4 was 100% when I went to sleep at 11pm when I woke up at 7ammy battery was down to 54%... Before limera1n everything was fine... I have mywi and my3g installed from cydia but I used to have these apps before on 4.0.1 with jailbreakeme and no problems...

I do have a severe battery drainage issue and it is killing me. I dont know what to do. By the way it works normally when the SIM card is not installed. I have an iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlocked on 4.1 and preserving Baseband 01.59.00 Any suggestions on how to fix it? Do you know a way of downgrading my iOS to 4.0.2? My phone was working fine before the update to 4.1

I have a quick question. I have just bought my iphone 4 from the U.S. and I was just wondering: In order to be able to use it with my icelandic carrier am I required to jailbreak the phone aswell as unlock it with ultrasn0w or is it enough simply to wait for an ultrasn0w unlock for modem firmware 02.10.04 on iOS 4.1 to be able to use it? Also, it seems that this unlock shouldnt take too long to arrive, but am I able to downgrade the modem firmware so that I could use an earlier version of ultrasn0w? Thanks in advance guys.
Gunny - October 12, 2010 at 1:33am
Ok I just realised that ultrasn0w only works with jailbroken devices, my bad. But the downgrade question still applies. Also, does anyone know when ultrasn0w might do an unlock for 02.10.04?
Rax - October 12, 2010 at 12:22am
Hey, i used limera1n to jailbreak my iphone 4 4.1 01.59.00 ... but i can't unlock it with redsn0w it always stucks on step 13 of the instruction .. so where is the problem? can't i unlock this version of my iphone 4?
Run9e - October 12, 2010 at 6:39am
try ultrasn0w
Rax - October 12, 2010 at 9:02am
ultrasn0w doesnt work it always breaks up on step 13 of the iclarified instruction ... so any ideas?
Rubn9e - October 13, 2010 at 5:13am
I've got iPhone 4, 4.1, 01.59.00. What works for me is: 1. limera1n 2. Installing Cydia 3. Applying all changes in Cydia 4. Insalling ultrasno0w 5. Rebooting.
