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.

Details:
● 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.

Tutorials:
iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 (Windows)
iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G (Windows)
iPad (Windows)

How to Update Your iPhone 4 Without Upgrading the Baseband (Mac)
How to Update Your iPhone 4 Without Upgrading the Baseband (Windows)

Update:
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.

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.

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
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?

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.

Did you install any apps or tweaks from Cydia after you JB your iPhone? If you did you might have d-loaded an app or tweak that is not compatible with IOS 4. If you didn't install anything from cydia then try running Linera1n again or restore the iphone and try JB again.

Iphone 4, updated yesterday to 4.1, then use limera1n to jailbreak was successful, working fine. just a delay connecting to internet today I found that cydia never loads data ( even when yesterday work) I reboot my phone and... zappts!!!, booting loop, its stacked in apple logo I try with no luck iReb ( because it doesn't work on jailbroked devices) I try also irecovery.. no way... keep looping and doing that sound like you replug the usb every 10 seconds ( or less) diskaid works, i have root access to all files and folders, any solution without going to itunes recovery thanks
