limera1n Mac Download for iPhone 4 4.1, iPhone 3GS 4.1, iPod touch4G/3G 4.1, and iPad 4.1 Released

limera1n MacLooks like Geohot was being sarcastic when he said limera1n for Mac would be released in 7 years. The limera1n Mac download for iPhone 4 4.1/4.0/4.0.2/4.0, iPhone 3GS 4.1/4.0/4.0.2/4.0, iPod touch 3G 4.1/4.0/4.0.2/4.0, iPod touch 4G 4.1/4.0/4.0.2/4.0, and iPad 3.2.2 hardware was just released by Geohot. Simply click make it ra1n, put your device in DFU mode and the limera1n jailbreak will do it's magic.

You can get the limera1n for Mac download from the limera1n download page. Let us know how this works for you in the comments. I know a lot of you Mac users here are still waiting for greenpois0n but go ahead and try limera1n because it's really easy to use and uses the same exploit.

Geohot for president. Bet ya he could wipeout the nation's debt with one swift stoke of a key!!!

limera1n was quick and easy on my iPhone 4 with 4.1 OS using my Mcacbook Pro. So far so good!

Come on Dev Team! Why are you forgetting to hook up the guys who own an iPhone 3G? Those guys are waiting too. Well I am as well because I have an old one and i'd like to jailbreak it using iOS 4.1

October 14, 2010 at 11:33 AM

Just jailbroke my iPhone 4 on my macbook. Works great!

October 14, 2010 at 11:33 AM

what about iphone 3G?
and what about the unlock ?

October 14, 2010 at 11:42 AM

The dev team did the responsible thing!! I for one would like to take this opportunity and say THANK YOU!!!
Next stop 4.2. Keep em coming boys!!!

October 14, 2010 at 11:44 AM

Do you lose your existing apps that you have on your iphone 4 if you do this jailbreak?

Can the iphone 4 be restore back?

Will an iphone 4 upgrade make you lose this jailbreak?


October 14, 2010 at 11:51 AM

WTF but no iPod touch 2g mc support!!!!! Why not

October 14, 2010 at 11:55 AM

People go out and sell all your baseball cards and matchbox cars on eBay and go buy yourself something new. They didn't jailbreak my commodore 64 but I'm ok with that!!

October 14, 2010 at 3:18 PM

Bout time. Thanks. So happy now. Jailbroke iPhone 4. 4.1. It was too easy. I couldn't believe it. Very happy.

October 14, 2010 at 3:26 PM

me too lol....awesome work on mac...hopefully 2g mc will be soon :D

October 14, 2010 at 3:42 PM

The program was actually done JBing before i thought it'd begun. Took me maximum 1 minute. I haven't been successful with the LR or GP windows versions, since they (although i successfully get into DFU mode) doesn't recognize it at all (i blame windows for all that installation windows crap that appear).

The downside, although, is regardless 4.0.1, 4.1, LimeRain or whatever FW you bring up, that i still have terrible reception with my iphone 4 at home. If i use my old nokia e51 it has full reception (fake or real, i cant say...). If i do the iphone4-deathgrip for some secs in a bad reception area (like my home) it forces the phone into No service-mode. Very niice! ;-) But when the reception is good, there is no whatsoever effect with the deathgrip. I still completely looove my iphone4 for what i can do with it, so i dont bother complaining any more. ;-)

Thanx Geohot for your wonderful service. If i wasn't so greedy i would sponsor you with 10 bucks, but it hurts to pay, so i don't...

October 14, 2010 at 6:52 PM

Worked perfectly for me. I tried the Win version with no success at all. Thanks, Geohot…
iPhone 3gs, 32 Mb, IOS 4.1

October 14, 2010 at 7:26 PM

I've got a 3GS running jailbroken 3.1.2. How do I get it to jailbroken 4.1 state and keep all my existing apps (including cydia ones)? TIA

October 14, 2010 at 7:52 PM

October 14, 2010 at 8:12 PM

The post says ipad 4.1, does this exist? or is it just bs?

October 14, 2010 at 9:47 PM

It worked like a charm for my Iphone 4.1, and my iPad 3.2.2. And it was very easy and quick.

October 14, 2010 at 11:36 PM

Worked for me - very cool.

October 15, 2010 at 12:27 AM

is there any estimate for the unlock (ios 4.1)??

October 15, 2010 at 1:54 AM

Awesome Jailbreak, but when is the Unlock coming out for ios 4.1?

October 15, 2010 at 2:11 AM

No, you lose nothing.
Yes, you can restore it whenever you want.
The most probable answer is yes, you'll lose your jailbreak.

Just jailbroke iPad Wi-fi 3.2.2 and iPhone 4 (4.1) with my macbook pro 13".
Everything is working perfectly, can't stop playing Angry Birds =)

It worked perfectly on my 3gs with iOS 4.1 The process is ridiculously easy and quick. I can't thank enough Geohot. All I need now is an unlock tool for 5.14.02 BB, and I will be happy again like the old times when I had a fully unlocked and jailbroken 3gs before stupidity tell me to upgrade without having the knowledge to do so properly. Good thing is that now I know everything about restoring jailbroken iOS firmwares :D

October 15, 2010 at 4:32 PM

October 15, 2010 at 5:50 PM

Geohot is god! Limera1n is the shit! Fuck greenpoison and the Dev Team!!

October 15, 2010 at 9:11 PM

October 17, 2010 at 7:56 AM

I have an iPod touch 4.1 2g MC model and i just cant jailbreak it, can someone help me?

October 17, 2010 at 12:02 PM



Step-by-step Guide:

- Download Limera1n and run it. after it finished it will say that ur iPod got succesfully jailbroken. it won't be jailbroken!

- Download iOS 4.0 (Google for it)

- Re-run Limera1n again and have iTunes opened BUT dont complete the Limera1n jailbreak this time. Let Limera1n put ur iPod into recovery mode but don't help limera1n by getting it into DFU mode (So DON'T press the home + power button this time)

- iTunes should see that ur iPod is in recovery mode. hold Shift and click on restore (SHIFT+RESTORE). Now select ur previously downloaded iOS 4.0 and let iTunes do the job for u :)

- After iTunes is done u should have iOS 4.0 on ur iPod 2G MC. Now we're gonna JB it by going to the iPod browser (SAFARI) and surf to Jailbreakme Slide to JB and voila ur done.

This worked on 2 out of 2 iPods. Both 2G MC models. 1 previously jailbroken with SHSH Blobs saved and 1 Clean iPod never been jailbroken.

Please Reply and let others know if it worked :)
