Geohot is Coming Back to Jailbreak Scence With Limera1n to Jailbreak All iOS 4.1 Devices Forever
Yes, that’s true! Geohot will make a full return back with new bootrom exploit and tool to pwn all current iOS devices on iOS 4.1 for life. Geohot has been out for months since his last blog post but his return will surely please everyone specially the 3rd-generation iPhone and iPod touch users. The jailbreak will supposedly called LimeRa1n and would be released on 10/11/10, just a day after the GreenPois0n scheduled release date.
The news has been confirmed by members of iPhone dev team and Chronice Dev Team on Twitter. They have confirmed that George Hotz will back with his new tool Limera1n but they are not happy with it as they want him to save this new exploit for the future next-gen iPad 2 and iPhone 5 devices.
MuscleNerd: As dramatic as geohot’s last-minute all-device JB is, still a shame that two bootrom holes will be burned at once.
p0sixninja: yes, the news about geohot is true, the day after we release ETA he decides he wants a piece of the #pieGoogle Ads:
p0sixninja: and yes it is a different bootrom exploit, he wants us to use it in GP, but there’s no way we’ll make our ETA if we do
chronicdevteam: Note greenpois0n will be released as planned. if someone decides to burn a different perfectly good exploit, that is entirely on them.
chronicdevteam: It is actually him.
chronicdevteam: because his different exploit can be saved for new iphone / ipad / ipod, AND 3G S, you’d just have to wait a little longer
The ETA of Limera1n is exactly one year after one year after blackra1n was released to jailbreak iOS 3.2.1. StealthBravo confirms that too:
The significance of 10/11/10 is that its the one year anniversary of blackra1n’s release. 10/11/10 is the targeted release of limera1n
So, what do you think guys? Should Geohot really saves this new bootrom exploit for iPad 2 and iPhone 5 or should he just go on and release his tool as there’s another userland exploit on it’s way?
UPDATE 1: Limera1n is untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.1 only, for newer firmware, comex’s jailbreak would be untether it. This was announced by chpwn.
