LimeSn0w Unlock for iOS 4.1 by GeoHot on its Way? - iPhoneHeat

LimeSn0w Unlock for iOS 4.1 by GeoHot on its Way?

After Limera1n, GeoHot is going to amaze us all over again with LimeSn0w, a potential unlock for iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G. The screenshot and video below [Fake?] shows iPhone 3GS iOS 4.1 baseband 05.15.01 unlocking with LimeSn0w installed via Limera1n just like BlackSn0w was available via Blackra1n.

As a matter of fact, when you update iPhone 4 / 3GS to iOS 4.1 to jailbreak with Limera1n it also updates iPhone 4 baseband to 02.10.04 which is not unlockable ATM. So, it would make sense for GeoHot to comes up with his own unlock solution (LimeSn0w?).

The domain is registered by GeoHot the same day he registered for Limera1n jailbreak. Domain info for and can be found here and here. The domain ownership enforce our belief that Limesn0w will become reality just like Limera1n.
NOTE: There’s no word from GeoHot himself.

PwnageTool update for iOS 4.1 is expected soon which will jailbreak iPhone and iPod Touch on iOS 4.1 while preserving baseband thus enables you to unlock your iPhone with UltraSn0w.

This will never be real. Media, understand it. ~geohot

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

Figmang October 13, 2010, 6:25 am

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

Preotu October 14, 2010, 5:07 am

you just hate reading too much right ? there is NO limesn0w yet … its only a rumor 🙂

Preotu October 14, 2010, 5:07 am

(this message goes @alqaissy)

alqaissy October 15, 2010, 10:39 am

but i am worry because my iphone locked now 🙁
and also i can’t downgrade it, the bootrom updated also 🙁

alqaissy October 14, 2010, 1:34 am

hi, i have jailbreak my iphone and it works perfect i just want to know limesn0w why does n’t show in the limera1n ?

Draco809 October 14, 2010, 12:13 pm

It says “media,this will never come-geohot”

Josh October 15, 2010, 12:30 am

Didn’t geohot do purplesn0w then purplera1n and blacksn0w then blackra1n. Wouldn’t it only make sense that he releases limesn0w?

Cjo20 October 17, 2010, 2:20 pm

Pls geohot, release limesnow.I have an iPhone 4 and I haven’t made calls for a month and some weeks. People might think I am dead. Thanks for limerain rather than waiting for greenpoison and their slow and foolish dramatic release process.

jimmy November 23, 2010, 3:47 am

why unlock still not available? why it taking to long to release it???

redwood November 28, 2010, 11:38 pm

please source of limesn0w
