    Welcome to another one of my tutorials on how to jailbreak using the newly released tool, LimeRa1n.

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    LimeRa1n can jailbreak the iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, and the iPod Touch 4G running 4.0 and above. Unlike previous jailbreaks that we have had, LimeRa1n is unpatchable. It is also untethered.

    To download LimeRa1n, you can visit the link above, or you can visit the direct link below.

    Now, let's get to the jailbreak. You will need LimeRa1n.exe as downloaded above.

    Step 1) Locate LimeRa1n in your folder that you previously downloaded it to.

    Step 2) Open LimeRa1n. Unlike previous jailbreaks, you will not have to run it as administrator. Once it is open, you will see something like this:

    Step 3) Connect your iDevice to your computer via a 30 pin connector cable.

    Step 4) Open Task Manager > Processes and kill iTunesHelper.exe and iTunes.exe. This is not mandatory, but will reduce any annoyance when we begin the jailbreak.

    Step 5) Now, click "make it ra1n" on LimeRa1n.

    Your iDevice is now going to restart and turn off. You will be prompted through LimeRa1n when each of these steps appear.

    Step 6) After your device turns off, LimeRa1n will prompt you to enter DFU mode. To do this, do the following:

    Step 7) After DFU mode is entered, LimeRa1n will begin the jailbreak and you will see the Lime logo on your iDevice. This may last from 10 - 60 seconds depending on your iDevice. To see a picture of the lime logo, please see the top image.

    Step 8) Within a few minutes or seconds depending on your device, your device will restart. You will then see either a lime icon, or a blank white icon on your springboard.

    Step 9) Tap this icon and it will open an app that looks remarkably like BlackRa1n's installation screen (it actually is based on the exact app that BlackRa1n ran on).

    Step 10) Tap on Cydia and then tap on Install. It will download Cydia and then install the package. Your iDevice will then do a light restart or Respring.

    Step 11) You may or may not see Cydia on your springboard, if you do, proceed to step 13.

    Step 12) This step is for if you do not see Cydia. If you do not see Cydia on your springboard, redo Step 10 a few times. If it is still not showing up, shut down and restart your iDevice and it should be on your springboard.

    Step 13) Open Cydia and it will re-organize. It will then respring your springboard.

    Step 14) Re-open Cydia and wait 2 - 3 minutes. It will then come up with an upgrade prompt. Tap "Complete Upgrade".

    Step 15) Enjoy! Your iDevice is successfully jailbroken!

    I'd personally wait for the 6th copy before I'd believe it.

    It will not. Use RedSn0w for an iPT2G.
