Geohot has just released the much anticipated Mac version of his Limera1n tool which can jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, and iPod touch 4G / 3G running iOS 4.1 – untethered !
George Francis Hotz is known for being among the group of people who first unlocked the iPhone to work on carriers other than those which Apple officially supported e.g. AT&T. He went to release jailbreaking tools like purplera1n, blackra1n, blacksn0w, a hack the PS3 and recently Limera1n which jailbreaks iOS 4.1.
Earlier today, we were tipped off about Limesn0w unlock which was said to have been worked on by Geohot for the new 05.14.02 and 2.10.04 basebands on iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. We didn’t post it because the videos and pictures floating around the Internet were too obviously fake.
iOS 4.1.1 is looming near! The update is set to fix a daylight savings bug in iOS’ alarm clock app that causes alarms to sound an hour early. The update is also set to patch hacker comex’ untethering hack which is used by Geohot’s Limera1n jailbreaking tool for iOS 4.1.
While we previously thought that Geohot’s startling return to jailbreaking with Limera1n wouldn’t make jailbreaking Apple TV possible, it turns out that it is actually possible and you can do it right now!!
GreenPois0n took weeks upon weeks upon weeks of development and hard work from the Chronic Dev Team. The SHAtter exploit based tool was supposed to release today, but after the release of George Hotz’ Limera1n (which is based on a new exploit; pwns all iOS 4.1 devices), Chronic Dev Team had to make a very tough decision.
Limera1n has been unleashed to the world! It can jailbreak pretty much all the current iOS devices running iOS 4.1. This includes iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad and iPod touch 4G / 3G.
Limera1n has been released for all iOS devices including: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G / 3G, iPad running iOS 4.1, and iOS 3.2.2 respectively. Limera1n is currently available for Windows only, however a Mac and Linux version will be available soon.
Geohot has made a dramatic return to iPhone jailbreak scene with a complete new bootrom exploit and tool to pwn all current iOS devices on iOS 4.1 for life! He has been out for months, but his return is surely going to please everyone, specially the 3rd-generation iPhone and iPod touch owners who were left out by SHAtter based GreenPois0n.
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.
