Time to set your iPhone free- again.


The time set for releasing iPhone 4.1′s Jailbreak was set. 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 GMT- the same time that Cartoon Network Arabic launched except in a different time zone. And limera1n delivered. I successfully Jailbroke my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1 a few minutes back.

The only version of limera1n available for now if for Windows, however Mac users should be getting their fix soon as well. The 328kb file downloads in an instant and I ran it with Admin privileges in Windows 7. A small screen came up that set my iPhone into recover mode after which I had to set it up in DFU mode by following the oh-so-familiar instructions.

Once the iPhone was in DFU mode, the exploit was sent and a minute and a reboot later, I saw the icon for limera1n icon on my iPhone through which I was able to install cydia. One more reboot was needed as instructions mentioned that your iPhone might require a reboot for the cydia icon to show up.

The whole process took about three minutes and none of the information on my iPhone 4 was lost. Now its time to sit back, relax and download LockInfo- the number one reason I Jailbreak my iPhones.
