Famous hacker Geohot is back and today he released the latest iOS 4.1 jailbreak. It is called LimeRa1n and supports iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G with iOS firmwares 4.0-4.1 and beyond. It can also hacktivate your device, so there is no need in phone SIM-cards and other tricks.
This software is still in beta and was updated 3 times in last several hours. So use with caution.
There is Windows version only for now. Geohot plans to release LimeRa1n for Mac and Linux soon. You can Download it here.
Some users report that they have jailbroken their iOS 3.2.2 iPads successfully with limera1n, while others report that they tried, but failed.
Do not forget to backup.
For many users of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0.2 now there is a hope to perform jailbreak using LimeRa1n and unlock using ultrasn0w. We recommend NOT to do it if you have not saved your SHSH keys. You can try, but if something goes wrong without SHSH keys you'll have to restore to iOS 4.1, and there is no unlock for iOS 4.1 (possibly forever). Just wait for PwnageTool utility.
DevTeam reported that Limera1n uses a different exploit than SHAtter, so they will not release SHAtter utility, they don't want let Apple fix both security holes. However they plan to release PwnageTool using the same exploit.

Some users say that they have problems, while trying to use the JailbreakMe.com service. They simply can not browse the site! We decided to solve this issue, so you can unlock iPod touches, iPads and iPhones. Follow these instructions to achieve a positive result!
Step 1: Instead of typing http://www.jailbreakme.com, enter http://jailbreakme.com/index.html, it will take you directly to the site that really works.
Step 2: If the above does not work, use the Canadian extension as follows http://www.jailbreakme.ca. App Advice claims that it is a mirror redirecting you to the current website version.

Facebook for iPhone 3.2 was released last night and now it supports the newly created function "Places", background downloading of photos and videos in iOS 4, together with other visual enhancements, such as "pull-to-refresh" for the iPhone. However, for many users, this new version was mostly broken, with the following error "Unable to load the page" on most of its pages. Yes, and if you try to uninstall and reinstall the application, it simply refuses to "Log in".
As it turned out, this problem occurs on jailbroken iPhones for those users who have installed the application BiteSMS from Cydia. The new Facebook application for iPhone 3.2 is not compatible with the current version of BiteSMS. So if you have installed this application, removing it from Cydia, you’ll solve this problem, at least it really helped some of the users.
We hope that the new version of BiteSMS will be released pretty soon and will be compatible with this new version of Facebook for iPhone.

As with *any* new FW, jailbreakers + unlockers must avoid this upcoming 4.1 update until our tools are updated
3GS, ipt3G, iPhone4 users (regardless of current FW or JB status) should backup 4..0 SHSH blobs http://is.gd/dskh9 soon
Obviously avoid today's 4.0.1 update until JB tools are updated. Luckily, no baseband change so ultrasn0w lives on
each FW version has unique blobs. But using http://is.gd/dskh9 you can get 4.0 blobs on PC while you stay at 3.1.2
Hah for those iPhone3G or ipt2g(non-MC) users at 4.1beta1: use redsn0w from 2 wks ago to JB http://is.gd/dstU3
