Limera1n has been released for all iOS devices including: , iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G / 3G, iPad running iOS 4.1, and iOS 3.2.2 respectively. is currently available for Windows only, however a Mac and Linux version will be available soon.

The following instructions will help you iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS using Limera1n. We will update this tutorial and include full screenshots to guide you through the process shortly.

Note: Limera1n still has a few known , these are being worked on currently and will be updated soon! Stay tuned for anymore !

Update your device to iOS 4.1 (iPhone and iPod Touch only) or 3.2.2 (iPad only).

NOTE: If you rely on an , do not update to iOS 4.1 (without using TinyUmbrella) yet as doing so will upgrade your baseband, making it impossible for now to unlock. Either use TinyUmbrella to update to iOS 4.1 without update baseband (instructions here), or wait for PwnageTool which will help you cook custom firmware files for iOS 4.1 without the upgraded baseband.

Step 1: Download Limera1n from here.

Step 2: Connect your iDevice via USB to your computer and click on “make it ra1n”.

Step 3: Now follow the following steps in this order:

  • Now wait for the device to enter mode.
  • Now hold “Home” + “Power” buttons:

  • Release the “Power” button:

  • now wait for the device to enter DFU mode:

Step 4: Once you are done with this, you will have the limera1n logo on your iDevices screen. Limera1n will now inject the bootrom exploit to pwn your device forever!

Step 5: Jailbreak is done!

Step 6: Now start Limera1n app from your iDevice, and install Cydia as shown in the screenshots below.

Step 7: Now simply restart your device and enjoy the jailbreak!

UPDATE: If you are having problems with Cydia after jailbreaking using Limera1n, please restart your device and try again

UPDATE 2: Don't try running Limera1n on the iPhone 3G, because it'll hang in DFU mode and you'll have to get it out by booting into recovery mode.

UPDATE 3: To clarify, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G that require jailbreak, please refere to this guide here on how to jailbreak using Redsn0w. Please remember, jailbreaking using Redsn0w does not prevent your baseband update, DO NOT UPDATE to 4.1 if you require a carrier unlock!

    Another successful jailbreak! poison was failing so I dloaded rain. That failed the first time but I think it may have been because I let go of the Home button too soon? If that was the problem, may be worth making a note on these tutes saying “keep holding down home button until it reboots” or something like that.

    Does this work on Ipod Touch 2G MC model on 4.0.2? I tried it but the Limera1n app is not showing. Thanks!

  14. Brian says:

    I got Limera1n to install and it seemed to work however I’m having trouble with the Limera1n app. I’ve powered my iPhone 4 down several times as suggested but nothing has really changed. First the icon for the app is just a white square, odd I thought buthey, I gave it a shot any way. The first few times I tried it, the app started then shut down immediately. After running the jailbrake again, the app would launch but only stays going for a few seconds then shuts down. What shows on the screen is a small raindrop icon at the top and nothing else. No link to the Cydia install or option to uninstall limera1n. iPhone4, 4.1(8B117), 02.10.04
