casgoin October 10, 2010, 5:57 pm

kiid October 10, 2010, 6:37 pm

ponci October 10, 2010, 9:15 pm

PEOPLE IF U WANT TO UNLOCK 4.1 U SHOULD BE CAREFUL AND USE TINY UMBRELLA WHEN UPGRADING TO 4.1 THAT WILL SAVE UR OLD BASEBAND !!! THATS WHAT I DID NOW I HAVE A 4.1 WITH 1.59 BASEBAND !!! READ MOST OF IPHONE HEAT’S POSTS BEFORE SCREWING UP !!!

ponci October 10, 2010, 10:28 pm

GREEN POISON GOT JUST DELAYED, IT PROBABLY WONT COME OUT UNTIL NEXT IPHONE UPDATE. FOR NOW LETS JUST USE LIMERAIN AND KEEP ON WAITING FOR MORE VERSIONS OF LIMERAIN FOR OTHER IPHONE AND IPOD VERSIONS !!!

Sharon October 11, 2010, 10:17 pm

Hey! THANKS for the upload. I am at school and downloaded Lime.

When I open it, it says “let it rain” and to attach device. I don’t have the cord and will do it when I get home. My question is “how long does it take to jailbreak?”

And is this the only thing I have to do? It is THAT easy aside from downloading the applesync? THANKS!

iPhoneHeat October 12, 2010, 12:37 am

a few seconds

stan October 12, 2010, 1:57 am

twizy86 October 12, 2010, 8:29 am

Otani October 12, 2010, 1:10 pm

Does it work on 3GS NEW BOOTROM?
Thanks.

iPhoneHeat October 12, 2010, 5:41 pm

Yes, it does.

Ronreflex October 12, 2010, 6:43 pm

Qucik question, As long as i have an official carriers sim, i do not need to unlock it yes? only a jailbreak of limera1n or of green poison woul suffice? should i hold out on the unlock as well?

i own a iphone 3gs with iOS 4.1 with 5.14.02 baseband

and im pretty sure its the new boot rom.

iPhoneHeat October 13, 2010, 12:43 am

no need to unlock 🙂

Figmang October 13, 2010, 6:35 am

Hey evebody i know All of you are excited
I found a way to update your firmware to 4.1
Without updating your baseband or modem
It will be really useful for the people that is running
4.0.2 and want to jailbreak and unlock but want to keep old
Base band!
This is how:
First download 4.1os then have your iPhone 4 o 3GS
Ready to update
Plug it to iTunes and then recover holding shift and look for the firmware
4.1 your going to update
Then update but when the process it’s on it’s half way
Unplug your Internet service it will continue restoring but I guess the las part of rstoring is upgrading the baseband but since isn’t plug to the Internet service
iTunes won’t do that part it will send you and error message and the iPhone
Will stay in dfu mode
Use tinyumbrella to kick out of recovery mode
And listo!
Updated but with your old base band
Then just run limera1n and jailbreak then install cydia
And ultrasnow this is for everybody that needs to unlock
And preserve old basebands from 4.01 or 4.02 it was easy
And it work for me

dsinc October 13, 2010, 7:54 pm

can we unlock iphone 4 4.1 if the iphone comewith the official firmware 4.1 ?

THANNS!

ipodtouch3g October 14, 2010, 1:03 am

The jailbreak didnt work i followed the steps but my the limera1n icon didnt appear on the screen try to reboot and hard reboot please help

Chamreun October 15, 2010, 7:03 am

Dear all,

My iPhone 3GS 32GB, after jailbreak with Limera1n I got my iPhone keep restarting. Could anyone help please.

thesaipankid October 15, 2010, 9:11 am

First I download limera1n I was reading it and it can’t jailbreak iPod touch 2G! Then I download greenpoison again I was reading it and it can’t jailbreak iPod touch 2 G. I have helped others jailbreak there iPhone & iPod touch. So guess who is not yet jailbreak!!! ME!!!

kalia October 17, 2010, 3:45 am

ive also tried several times on my ipod touch 3g, iOS4.1 and didnt see the limra1n icon, even after rebooting, even though it said complete…whats wrong with it?

LiveOrDie October 17, 2010, 2:42 pm

This fails to pick up my 3g in DFU mode?

tuga2 October 20, 2010, 1:07 am

iPODTOUCH 2G IOS4.1 will it work ive tryed greenp0ison nothing ive tryed redsn0w nothing it just crashes this is my last resort

DrRNA November 9, 2010, 3:37 am

Sorry to tell it never worked for my iPod touch 3G. The process confirmed it was done but even after 5 reboot, the limra1n app never showed on my iPod. Too bad.

DrRNA November 27, 2010, 6:31 pm

Thanxx for the follow-up. I finally succeed to do it. I guess there was a confusion with the iPod version 2G or 3G on my side. It works better with the appropriated ipsw version 😉

Dream_Loud November 26, 2010, 5:55 pm
