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??
steff - October 14, 2010 at 12:57am
that's ok, i did the same thing now i'm with 4.1 and old baseband.nice job,here is the steps:

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.

Is anyone has a Battery drain on iPhone 4 iOS4.1 after jailbreak with Limera1n?
Yianni - October 13, 2010 at 4:33am
Yes I am having high battery drain after Jailbreaking iPhone 4, 4.1
fabrixce - October 13, 2010 at 5:14pm
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...
Omar - November 8, 2010 at 11:55pm
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
Cheba - October 12, 2010 at 8:03am

james dean - October 12, 2010 at 8:48am
Yo Aj, It's simple use via your iphone then go to cydia and search for unlock
stefan - October 12, 2010 at 12:55pm

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.
binaryscene - October 11, 2010 at 9:53pm
I made a video of the jailbreak process here if anyone is interested:
henrybsjr - October 12, 2010 at 12:48am
Hi. thanks for the video... When I jailbreak using Limera1n, will this erase all my apps and back to default?
sant0ss - October 11, 2010 at 9:18pm
I have an iPhone 3gs on Apple 4.1 and I need to Unlock it..should I Jailbreak it with limera1n so I can save the SHSH, (I have never saved any SHSH) or should I wait for the Pwnage Tool? I don't understand what happens if Apple releases 4.1.1 and I don't have the SHSH saved..please help! thanks!

I just jailbroke my iphone 4 it was fine untill spring board crashed now i cant get out of the safe mode im runnning 4.1 firmware
Jeff - October 12, 2010 at 12:22pm
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.
FC - October 11, 2010 at 4:19pm
Works perfect, one iP4 4.0.2 old bb and one iP4 4.1 new bb, both jailbroken and unlocked !....Both working fine on Brasil !... ;o) Thanks Geohot for your well done work !...
Mirzet - October 11, 2010 at 3:06pm
It works fantastic with 3gs 4.1, but unfortunately should wait for UNLOCK with baseband 5.14.02
iPwn - October 11, 2010 at 2:41pm
Hi guys, how can i preserved all my app and setting on my 4.0.1 iP4 when upgrading to 4.1? do i have to download all my app again?
666 - October 11, 2010 at 10:20am
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

Ahmad - October 11, 2010 at 3:14am
Hi , Please answer me, by mistake I applied the new Limr1n JB on my iphone 3GS which was on IOS 3.0.2 before upgrading it to 4.1, and now the device is freezed on the apple symbol and is not able to connect to itunes to reset it. Any suggestion? I know it's a silly mistake but it happens :(

Sunil Issac - October 11, 2010 at 6:44am

yapl - October 11, 2010 at 2:30am
Limera1n JB is not working for my iPod touch 3g 8 gb 4.1 MC model.
yapl - October 11, 2010 at 2:31am
tied even with iTunes opened and closed - didn't work

jecan - October 11, 2010 at 2:07am
i have a 4.1 3gs new bootrom, doesn't work no matter what i tried (eg. open itunes while running.. etc). limera1n logo pops up.. when is done, no limera1n white icon on the springboard.. nothing.. so i dun think is really fix for the 3gs new bootrom yet
ElSrLocust - October 11, 2010 at 3:14pm
I am having similar problem but First of all thanks so much Geo....Comex got my donation for my I4 and Geo just got another don' for my wifes I4. Thanks both of you guys. The problem I am having is with a recently updated iPhone 3GS / 4.1 / 5.14.02. The phone was brought to me crashed and updated. Limera1n seems to work just fine but when trying to load cydia the status bar stops and i get an error saying source not found. Any ideas? Looks like the new Limera1n update is said to fix 3GS bootrom issue, but it's not wokring for me.
Faraday - October 11, 2010 at 5:07pm
Dude, I'm in the same boat. 3GS new bootrom and I can't JB. Windows 7 64bit/Windows XP (SP3). Iphone 3GS on 4.1 (32Gb) - New Bootrom. Not sure what is different between me and the other who claim that is works for them!
ElSrLocust - October 13, 2010 at 5:52pm
Yep not sure either. I've got the exact same setup you described and limera1n won't install cydia at all. Stops at about 3%. Greenpoison claims to install cydia but after it completes the install cydia is white icon and will not open. AND I can't delete cydia to try I'm kinda stuck. Prob gonna have to fresh it up and reload 4.1. We'll see.
reibok - October 11, 2010 at 12:17am
i have to say, i was having the same problem as many no being able to limera1n their devices, one of mine being the ipod touch 3g. looking thru the dev team's blog, i found others with the same problem and a SIMPLE fix that WORKED...add to the instructions, OPEN iTunes before starting the process and leave itunes open while performing the limera1n jailbreak and it worked the first time...voila.
yapl - October 11, 2010 at 4:10am
This didn't work with my iPod touch 3g 4.1 MC model...

MacBook Pro 4,1 (2.5 Ghz 6GB [Penryn]) OS X 10.6.4 VMware Fusion 3.1.0 (254806) Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit iPhone 3G[S] 32GB White MB718LL 05.14.02 359.3 I have tried: a) Restarting (device, VM, and mbp) b) Delaying the release of the sleep/wake button c) Leaving iTunes open on VM d) Changing USB ports e) Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 f) Upgrading to iTunes 10 (OS X & 7) g) Restoring from backup of 4.0.2 h) Restoring from backup of 4.1 h) Restoring to 'new' via iTunes in OSX i) Restoring to 'new' under iTunes in Windows 7 Does anyone have any other suggestions? Tomorrow I'll try a Windows machine (Dell 700m) and post results. I'm looking forward to a Mac version of limera1n, but of course I'll take what I can get! Either way, thanks devteam, geohot et al -- let me know if you need a tester for a new/updated tool. twitter: datumax - October 11, 2010 at 12:24am
dont be fool and wait for the mac version or boot from bootcamp.......
datumax - October 11, 2010 at 12:24pm
Tired on a Dell 700m with Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit. Still no luck. Thanks for the tip -- I'll keep trying. Hopefully the Mac version will solve things.
datumax - October 12, 2010 at 7:48am
I used my Dell 700m to jailbreak my 3G[S] with limera1n last night, finally. I really can't say what I did differently. I must have tried almost fifty times with different setups until it just worked with the newer RC1b. Good luck, guys.
ImGreenOne - October 10, 2010 at 7:59pm
Works great.... Thanks
steve - October 10, 2010 at 7:46pm
So i want to jailbreak and unlock my iphone 3gs that is running 4.1, 05.14.02, and as a bootrom of 359.3.2. I know with limera1n i can now JB, and i know there is no unlock for the 4.1 out yet, but will an unlock be coming out? I just got this iphone a little while ago, so i never updated it, it was sent to me by apple on 4.1, 05.14.02 and on the new bootrom, will downloading this jailbreak, hurt my chances of unlocking in the future when dev team, or someone, releases a 4.1 unlock??
Faraday - October 10, 2010 at 7:55pm
Preserve your baseband using tinyumbrella and you'l be able to unlock in the future. You might be in the same boat as me where the Limera1n JB doesn't work! Good luck though!!! Cheers, Faraday
Faraday - October 10, 2010 at 6:02pm
I'm using 3GS (new bootrom - 359.2) on 4.1 and Limera1n doesn't work. I get into recovery mode and Limera1n says that it worked but I stay in recovery (no green raindrop) and when I force a reboot and get back to springboard no Limera1n icon. p.s. I'm using Windows 7 (64bit) Cheers, Faraday
me - October 10, 2010 at 11:23pm
right click on limera1n and run as administrator and also go to properties and run in windows xp compability mode
me - October 10, 2010 at 11:34pm
and also leave your itunes running while jailbreak
jaydough - October 10, 2010 at 5:45pm

I jailbroke, all seems ok, however I have lost some apps from the homescreen (incl itunes), I can still find them on a search, any ideas what I need to do to make the apps appear again?
Zo - October 13, 2010 at 6:40pm
Do a hard restart, and if that doesn't work, just Sync again w. iYunes.
samoelito - October 10, 2010 at 3:05pm
geohot did a great work, but sometimes i think his so elated --.--
Jeremy - October 10, 2010 at 2:31pm
All u do is resatrt your ipod via hold the home + power button turn of and turn back on cydia will appear
gustavo leon
gustavo leon - October 10, 2010 at 1:49pm
madcow - October 10, 2010 at 2:40pm
Did you enable facetime under phone settings? also if you restored from backup then you deserve issues because restoring from backup usually causes issues.
gustavo leon
gustavo leon - October 10, 2010 at 2:49pm
Nope I set up as new
deeack - October 10, 2010 at 1:25pm

t11chb - October 10, 2010 at 10:14am
I just updated my iPhone 4, JB using Limera1n, no cydia?? WTF?
tony - October 10, 2010 at 4:15pm
I had the same problem, and after 20 tries I finally managed to make it work! Boot camp doesn't work FYI and you should also not restore everything (I restored my phone but not the apps as some might have made the process bug).
reibok - October 11, 2010 at 12:26am
do the jailbreak With iTunes open. it will work then.
lee - October 10, 2010 at 10:03am
Geohot i give you mad respect takes two fuckin dev teams to do what u just did! Granted you do shit for the lime light, but u definitely kept everyone's iphone ,ipad and ipod into matter what generation. Thanks man , it made my weekend.
