GeoHot Limera1n App Brings Him Back to Jailbreaking

Nearly three months ago, we had reported that Geohot has decided to ditch the iTouch jailbreak scene. Now Geohot is all set to make a comeback to the iTouch jailbreaking scene with his latest tool Limera1n. This new tool from Geohot will be able to jailbreak all the various iTouch devices including the iPhone 4. Limera1n will be released on 10/11/10 i.e. on October 11; exactly a year after blackra1n was released.


However, the Chronic-Dev team is not happy with this move from Geohot. The Chronic Dev team will also be releasing a new jailbreaking tool GreenPois0n. The tool will be able to jailbreak all the iTouch devices running on iOS 4.1 and will be released on 10/10/10 at 10:10:10. Both Limera1n and GreenPois0n will jailbreak all the iTouch devices for life using boot rom exploits. Geohot’s Limera1n will be using a different boot rom exploit than the SHAtter’ exploit being used by Chronic Dev team.

The Chronic Dev team wants Geohot to save his new boot rom exploit for the next generation iPhone and iPad.
