    Limera1n Troubleshooting

    Just thought I would make a thread to deal with problems for limera1n. If you have any problems or solutions to problems please post them. I will update this to include greenpois0n when it comes out, although i don't expect many problems with greenpois0n. Here are the ones I know of and how I fix them.

    Before Trying Anything Or Posting Update To The Latest Version Of Limera1n And Try

    If nothing is working, try greenpois0n.


    1)Problem- Won't work on MC devices--- fix--- use beta 2 or higher

    2)Problem- Won't work on 3GS New Bootrom--- Fix--- use beta 3 or higher

    3)Problem- Says waiting for device forever and never connects--- fix--- download the latest version of iTunes
    --- fix 2--- hold home and power buttons when you get waiting for device, and don't follow the press home and power button prompt, but do obey the release home button prompt.
    --- fix 3--- put device in dfu mode, plug it in, and then press make it ra1n. You might need to "shake it by unplugging and replugging it in if you still get waiting for device. If you do this disregard any prompts.

    4)Problem- Says done but doesn't show limera1n logo, and doesn't install limera1n app--- fix--- open iTunes and then run limera1n while itunes is running, but don't push anything in iTunes just pay attention to limera1n

    5)Problem ------Known Error-------- doesn't work on iPod Touch 2g or iPhone 3G--- Alternative--- use Redsn0wier

    6)Problem- Limera1n doesn't uninstall--- Fix--- use beta 4 or later, or delete blackra1n.app manually from file or ssh.

    Please post any other problems/fixes and I will add them to the list. Hopefully geohot can see this and work on fixing them.
