Okay take this news with a grain of salt, for we are not sure here whether this is just a rumor, or a real deal. In an unexpected turn of events, the lemon drop image on Limera1n.com is now pointing towards a image which is showing all iOS devices, including those which are not supported by the upcoming GreenPois0n tool as jailbroken.

The rumor mill around the web is suggesting that Geohot is going to make a comeback on 10/11/10 (11th October) with Limera1n to jailbreak all current devices on the latest firmware. This is exactly one day after GreenPois0n is Released-to-Web.

For those of you who don’t know, Limera1n.com is registered under the same info as blackra1n.

Interestingly, both blackra1n and limera1n are pointing to same IP address i.e. 74.220.215.72, also, the image posted on the limera1n site has the same table as the one which Geohot posted back when he was working on Blackra1n.

So is Geohot back for real? or is he just playing with us? Is Limera1n real or fake? We will surely have answers to all these questions in the next few days. Stay tuned! [Thanks to ven000m for the hat tip via Twitter]

UPDATE 1: Members of Chronic Dev Team have confirmed that Geohot’s Limera1n is REAL! It is based on a completely new bootrom exploit which unlike GreenPois0n can jailbreak all iOS 4.1 for life! You can read more about it here.

UPDATE 2: MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team now chips in to confirm Geohot’s return, and the all-iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool Limera1n

As dramatic as geohot’s last-minute all-device JB is, still a shame that two bootrom holes will be burned at once.
