So you want to jailbreak your iPhone. Or maybe you’re on the fence. Either way, know that you have options. If you’re running the latest and greatest, assuming you’re not a dev with the latest beta and baseband, limera1n and greenpois0n just became available a few days ago. So if you’re looking to jailbreak your iPhone, those are the only choices you have for now!
Limera1n is available for both Mac and Windows machines now. Jailbreaking with it is super-dee-duper easy. You download it, connect your iPhone to your computer and click the “make it ra1n” button. Follow the two-step instruction process and you’re done! Simple as that.
If you did it correctly, you’ll see the large, lime green logo on your screen before it reboots. Oh, and if you’re wondering where Cydia is, you’ll have to open up the limera1n icon to find the installer there.
Just as a tip, make sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi when you update your Cydia packages. It will go that much faster and you can get on with your life.
Greenpois0n is pretty easy, too. However, it’s only available for Windows and Linux right now. Just like limera1n, you plug your iPhone into your computer once you’ve downloaded greenpois0n and click “prepare to jailbreak (DFU).” Follow the onscreen instructions, which will take you into DFU mode just like limera1n, and you’ll be set to go!
Aren’t you glad these hackers are just busting their asses so you can have simple, one-click access to jailbreaking your iPhone? Now, I’m not saying you should or shouldn’t donate, but these guys did work pretty damn hard on these exploits. So if nothing else, it reminds me to keep from whining when I’m waiting on supported versions. (I whined to myself until a Mac supported jailbreak was finally released.)
