Fantastic works like charm, thanks a lot.

Do NOT use with VMWare Fusion. I spend yesterday 'unbricking' my ipad because I tried to use this with VMWare. Got the iPad free again, used Bootcamp and seems to be working flawlessly.

I get through the jailbreak process, i see the green raindrop but in the end i see no white app icon not even after rebooting the device. I tried many times

It's work..!!, download the latest version limera1n RC1b, thanks to Geohot....

For those that can't get it to work, make sure you have latest iTune running in the background when you doing the JB. The iTune will keep asking you to restore the iPad just close the window when it pop up. I tried twice without the iTune running and does not work. The third time I let iTune running in the background and it did the trick. Good luck.

Finally...YES..It's worked now....Downloaded the latest version of Limera1n and it worked. Thanks GeoHot.

Tuan234 - October 11, 2010 at 4:30pm
Yep the new update from limera1n worked! (5th beta I guess.) Not even beta anymore by the way. 1st try! Thanks Geohot!

i fianlly got it working on my ipad 3.2.2. I used VPN to finally got Cydia installed. Thanks Geohot i am having fun with my new jailbreaked ipad now
Lean - October 11, 2010 at 9:59pm
What's VPN? I was told this jailbreak doesnt work for 3.2.2 ... Help!
anonmyouse - October 10, 2010 at 3:23pm
I have Ipad 3.2.2 If the jailbreak doesn't work, will a full restore bring my IPad back to working factory condition with no traces of Cydia or limera1n? Thanks.

Me too, it gets all the way through the process and I see no raindrop. Even after reboot and tried again I got nothing. Hopefully someone can help us out.

Someone said Limera1n is not compatible to wfi version of Ipad 3.22. Maybe we need to wait for greenpois0n
Cash - October 10, 2010 at 2:06pm
It does not work with Ipad 3.2.2 (7B500) Since limera1n said that it have performed its exploit, there are no image of a lime raindrop on the iPad and no icon on the SpringBoard.
Tuan234 - October 11, 2010 at 12:39am
is that a confirm that it doesnt work on that band? Id tried everything from Beta 2 to 4. No luck :(
Jeffrey - October 10, 2010 at 1:13pm
this version is not working. i already tried many times. after the jailbreaking process is done , always the itunes with cable screen comes up.
Kg - October 9, 2010 at 10:51pm
I got limera1n running in my iPad. The only downside is I can't download cydia. Cydia is blocked by Chinese government just like Facebook,Twitter and YouTube. Can someone post a tutorial for iPad proxy setting? Most of the users need to bypass the block by using proxy severs Thanks!

Which firmware do you have install in your iPad?
GY - October 10, 2010 at 1:55am
I tried to install this at 2010-10-10 13:30 and everything is working fine, after JB, I can also installed the 'Cydia' from Limera1n as well. Cool.... i am from Hong Kong

nope, is not working at all.... no icon, no bananas
Joe - October 9, 2010 at 10:19pm
I normally use my MacBook to sync my iPad. Will it matter if I use my windows pc to do the jailbreak, but them use my mac to re-sync everything?
dlr - October 9, 2010 at 10:31pm
should be fine...that's how I sync and jailbreak mine...

Im restoring my whole pc. Lol
chris - October 9, 2010 at 9:52pm
I am having the same issue here. Maybe iClarified can clarify some of these instructions.
Oz - October 9, 2010 at 9:34pm
Same here, says that is done but not getting the Limera1n screen just stays in recovery mode.

Is petwear wrote at the iphone4 tutorial: many are having trouble with program doesn't upload the exploit but just restart the device instead. to solve this, you need discard the on screen pop up and count 10 sec then release the power button when limera1n prompt DFU mode. I think the timing of pup up instruction from limera1n is not correct. it fixed my problem. May also apply to the iPad

Hey i just tried this and it does not show me a LimeRa1n logo at all. It just goes through the process of jailbreaking and says that it is done jailbreaking and all i have is a restore scree. Help?

Gustavo Leon - October 9, 2010 at 10:15pm
same here, it happens in ipod, and the ipad...
Tuan234 - October 10, 2010 at 12:03pm
Yep. I cant get the Lime Teardrop to come up on the screen I have restored my iPad 4 times :/ Gets into DFU mode, then says "JB is installed (still not lime screen), then after it just sit at the Connect to iTunes logo (I let it sit for 5 mins). Doesnt do anything after that. Im on 3.2.2.

Same here, I think limera1n is not compatible with all ipads.
Yaboyfoy - October 11, 2010 at 9:24am
If you get stuck at the connect to iTunes screen you don't have to restore. Just use tiny umbrella and kick your iPad out of recovery mode.
