I have not tested this yet, but some are reporting success with this. There have been reports of issues with the iPhone 3GS, on the new bootrom, and apparently a fix is coming. This will not work on iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G. We already have RedSn0w for them. If you need your device unlocked, do not use limera1n. Upgrading your firmware, also upgrades your baseband, losing your unlock.

The iPhone Wiki has been updated with this:

On 10/9/10 limera1n was released. This has delayed the release of SHAtter. Limera1n is now in Beta 2. It only supports windows at the moment and a large number of devices have issues.

The iPhone Dev Team and the Chronic Dev Team have confirmed that the SHAtter exploit will now be held back, for the next round of hardware. Greenpois0n will still be released, but will use Geohot’s exploit. There will, unfortunately, be a delay, but this is a good thing. For everyone.

Follow our step by step guides below to jailbreak iPhone 4G/3GS, iPod Touch 3G/4G on iOS 4.1, and iPad on iOS 3.2.2 (Mac or Windows):

    Kinda a jerk move (in my opinion) pulled by Geohot, if you say your out you don’t come back…bottom line

    if he really wanted to come back though, at least help the people you screwed after leaving…

    just my opinion

    Wow, I was not expecting this :/ I’ve been reading lots of tweets about this not working and working…Has anyone had good luck with limera1n on Windows? Let us know :)

    I have done this and I have no Cydia icon. I have rebooted it and nothing. I have a 3GS which may explain it. It was simple, just follow the instructions. I can’t wait to have a jailbroken phone again!

    easy jailbreak to follow, had to restart my ipad to find cydia. a few problems installing categories and sbsettings, got stuck on the respring screen. turning my ipad off and on fixed this. all good so far

    First time jailbreaker here.

    I got Cydia loaded using LimeRa1n. I installed ultrasn0w and I am still unable to use a non apple sim card. Am I doing something wrong?
