New Limera1n Jailbreak Released

Share This:


Mucho drama in the iOS jailbreak arena this weekend. Yesterday afternoon Geohot – the original iPhone unlocker and renowned independent jailbreaker – released his new limera1n jailbreak for all current iOS devices and all ‘minus one’ generation devices as well.

Limera1n works on Windows only for now, but Mac and Linux versions are said to be coming soon. It’s not quite a one-click jailbreak like some previous ‘ra1n’ jailbreaks from Geohot, but it’s still quite quick and easy. I’ve already used it to jailbreak my iPhone 4 and will give it a go on an iPad shortly.

Here is the full text currently offered at the limera1n site:

BETA2 – fixed kernel patching magic, rerun BETA2+ over BETA1

BETA4 – uninstall fixed, respring fixedish

As you can see, geohot has already been busy cranking out new beta releases. I’ve seen decidedly mixed results so far in terms of success in getting the jailbreak done with limera1n, but very few reports of problems once it is done.
