A quick note to let everyone know that so far, you can only download LimeRa1n for Windows. There is no Mac LimeRa1n download yet. According to Geohot himself, a Mac and Linux version of LimeRa1n should be available soon.

Update: There is now a Mac and Linux version of LimeRa1n.

There are many websites offering fake LimeRa1n download links. My recommendation is to be very careful with those. You can always download LimeRa1n from our iPhone downloads section, or directly from the LimeRa1n website.

I will update this post as soon as we have LimeRa1n download links for Mac and Linux.

If you’re on a PC, here is a guide on how to jailbreak your iPhone iOS 4.1 with LimeRa1n.

Changelog:

  • BETA 1 – first release
  • BETA 2 – fixed kernel patching magic
  • BETA 3 – fixed new bootrom 3GS
  • BETA 4 – uninstall fixed, respring fixedish

  • Jonathan

    I’ve tried everything and I can’t get rid of the white icon, and error with Cydia Download. I JUST bought my Ipod Touch 4g, 64 gig, on 1/4/2011. It has 4.1 on it. I used Limera1n successfully, and I have a white Limera1n icon on my homescreen. I open it, click Cydia and it starts downloading, then error 1001. I’ve rebooted my device 10 times, re-ran Limera1n after a complete re-install and it just does not work. My internet connection is Road Runner, and my wireless router is about a foot away. I’ve moved it to inches away, to the other side of the house, I always have 3 bars connection, so it’s not my connection. Just in case someone says it is, i tried it through my neighbors after they opened up their router for me. If anyone has any ideas that work, please let me know. uunio@yahoo.com

  • e1even11

    so, ive followed all of the instructions that come up on the screen (both with LimeRa1n and GreenPois0n) and it doesnt seem to matter, it says “jailbreak successful” but then there’s no Loader icon
    any help?

  • .

    NOT FOR 4.2.1~~> POINTLESS TRYING THIS IF YOU RUN THIS FIRMWARE.
    TRY REDSN0W INSTEAD.

    NOT FOR 4.2.1~~> POINTLESS TRYING THIS IF YOU RUN THIS FIRMWARE.

    ALSO…REMEMBER TO TURN OFF YOUR 3G B4 YOU START.
    SETTINGS~~> GENERAL~~>NETWORK.

    IF AFTER YOUV LOADED YOU JB, & NEED TO RESET & GET THE APPLE LOGO…
    JUST GO INTO DFU MODE & BOOT “JUST TETHERED NOW”.
    NO NEED TO MASTER RESET.

    (AFTER JB U CAN TURN 3G BK ON)

    HOPE THIS HELPS.

  • Jeff

    I downloaded this and it wiped out my phone and now im having to restore it and lost all my info, apps and contacts…WTF
