Written By Sam on 10 October 2010

We have already written about Limera1n which is released just before the greenpois0n jailbreak tool. GeoHot has released limera1n that can be used to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on all the iDevices. Windows users can now download limera1n to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iPad running on iOS 4.0 or iOS 4.1. Limera1n brings an untethered jailbreak for iDevices and is currently available for Windows OS only; Limera1n for Mac and Linux will be coming out very soon. If you an iPod Touch 2G user then you need to wait for some more time so that the new version of limera1n will support it too. If you are an iPhone 3G user then you need to rely on redsn0w.
