I think some more info may be needed. What is some background on it? I thought Limera1n was a fake from the 3.x days? --OMEGA RAZER 22:09, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

It was never fake see (a cached copy). --GreySyntax 22:45, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. Not sure where I heard that. --OMEGA RAZER 23:09, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Geohot made the web page when 3.1.3 come out but he said it used a bootrom exploit for untetherdness that he was saving for the iPhone 4 --liamchat 22:53, 8 October 2010 (UTC) Anything else we should mention? :P --dra1nerdrake 23:14, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Why the insane secrecy of it? I'm not deep in the scene but this is the first I'm hearing more than the name lol. --OMEGA RAZER 23:18, 8 October 2010 (UTC)


I thought geohot had no plans to release it... Balloonhead66 23:22, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Correct. Read the controversy section of this page. It should answer as to why the sudden change in heart. ~Drake

Latest edit to Limera1n

How does it look like a tethered? -- Balloonhead66|23:34, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

They're all plugged in with USB cables. --OMEGA RAZER 23:35, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
They could just be charging and he is in the photos app -- Balloonhead66|23:41, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Who is John Galt?

Look at the HTML source of the page. Is this comment new? Angelo 23:42, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Yep. I've looked at the source of this page before and after this update. The John Galt is probably meant to throw us off. Geohot does that. :P But, yes, it's new. ~Drake
Where did you see that? Balloonhead66 23:50, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Type in Firefox URL bar: view-source: Angelo 23:47, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Or google chrome for that matter :D . Anyway, I thought you meant the source of this page or the Limera1n page, not the website... *stupid* Thanks for explaining that! Balloonhead66 23:50, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Who is John Galt Kind of funny actually when you read it and what's going on right now --alpineflip
yes I see why "learns that all of the stories have an element of truth to them." maybe it will ra1n again but not today --liamchat 00:35, 9 October 2010 (UTC)


So, I'm sure most, if not all, of you are confused. This Limera1n is nothing more than a plot by geohot to get the chronic dev team to incorporate the exploit used in limera1n into greenpois0n. This is not plausible because the exploit in limera1n is a bootrom level exploit, which can be used to make a jailbreak (albeit tethered) on its own. To make greenpois0n untethered, chronic dev has used a tweak by comex (in userland) to patch the kernel. The exploit in Limera1n can be used at a later date to make another untethered jailbreak, but it's better to leave the lower level exploits until later, after all, either way, it produces the same affect. To implement the limera1n exploit into greenpois0n, they'd have to rewrite the entire jailbreak, which would offset the release. This should clear up confusion. ~Drake


A recent tweet from iPhone hacker p0sixninja has just confirmed that the date WILL NOT be changed. If they can implement geohot's exploit before 10/10, they will use that. If they can't they won't. Simple, right? :P Either way, this doesn't affect the end user in any way (that I can think of). --dra1nerdrake 00:53, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

This has nothing to-do with Limera1n. -- Shorty 01:06, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
It does. If they can integrate it into GP then there's not going to be a Limera1n. If they can't in time then there will be two jailbreaks released... --OMEGA RAZER 01:11, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
