    I've looked almost everywhere but I cant seem to find a detailed answer. I'm wondering if limera1n, released by geohot, is a true bootrom exploit. I've heard that it is but it requires a userland exploit. If thats true then what's the point besides access to custom boot logos and verbose?

    Thanks in advance,

    Limera1n is tethered. He used Comex's hybird to create untethered.

    I believe you will have to wait for it to be updated

    You can once it's updated, but it will likely be tethered.

    So it is a tethered bootrom exploit , but in this version it uses comex's hybrid to make it untethered? shatter is untethered bootrom without hybrid right?
