Now here is another big jailbreak news! Geohot, who earlier announced that he was leaving the jailbreak scene, is now back with a new tool named Limera1n to pwn all idevices on iOS 4.1 to life! The chronic dev team members tweeted about his return with Limera1n. Limera1n is planned to be released on 11/10/2010, just a day after the GreenPois0n tool is released.
p0sixninja: yes, the news about geohot is true, the day after we release ETA he decides he wants a piece of the #pie
p0sixninja: and yes it is a different bootrom exploit, he wants us to use it in GP, but thereâ€™s no way weâ€™ll make our ETA if we do
chronicdevteam: Note greenpois0n will be released as planned. if someone decides to burn a different perfectly good exploit, that is entirely on them.
chronicdevteam: It is actually him.
chronicdevteam: because his different exploit can be saved for new iphone / ipad / ipod, AND 3G S, youâ€™d just have to wait a little longer
cdevwill: [7:45pm] geohot: eh, iâ€™ll just steal your exploit [7:45pm] geohot: and beat you to the release Sounds like a nice guy.
StealthBravo: The significance of 10/11/10 is that its the one year anniversary of blackra1nâ€™s release. 10/11/10 is the targeted release of limera1n
But the Dev Team members wants him to save this bootrom exploit for the upcoming iPhone 5 and iPad 2. But let’s wait ad see what happens. Anyway, Limera1n is going to make all the users happy as GreenPois0n can only jailbreak the 4th generation devices.
