JailBreak Wars! Geohot & Limera1n Jailbreaks iOS 4.1, Upsets Jailbreak Applecart.

#JailBreak Wars! #Geohot & #Limera1n Jailbreaks iOS 4.1,

Limera1n has been released to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 in what seems like a showdown among dev teams. iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team are not very happy about Geohot for releasing the reportedly buggy exploit on his own.
We have been fans of iPhone Dev Team for eons and Chronic Dev Team has been in our radar recently. But Geohot's Blackra1n has been around and helped us to jailbreak iPhone OS 3.1.2 in last October!
The iPhone Dev Team, or the member MuscleNerd to be exact, has mentioned that the Limera1n will relock phones opened with Ultrasn0w, one of the most used jailbreaking software. The iPhone Dev Team is asking people to withhold the SHAtter exploit and Chronic Dev Team is going to modify GreenPoison jailbreak to use Geohots exploit.

But the real reason for the fight is that if there are too many exploits are in the open, Apple can fix all of the once and make it harder for people using jailbroken iOS devices.
What is more is that the jailbreak with Limera1n seem to act differently on different devices. Engadget found some of the icons missing after restart and didn't regain App Store, Maps, Game Center and Calendar even after a restore.I guess better wait and test the waters. But if you are brave, follow the link below for windowss based Limera1n, don't get too wet.
