    Default Limera1n not working (iPhone 4 - 4.1)

    I have tried multiple times to jailbreak an iPhone 4 running 4.1.
    The Limera1n application seems to skip right over entering into DFU mode steps and begins booting the phone as normal.

    I have put the phone into DFU mode despite the prompts given by the application, after which point the process apparently continues, however there is no Limera1n application on the homescreen (as I have been reading online) and no Cydia installed.

    I have tried rebooting as mentioned on the Limera1n website, again with no success.

    I have also tried performing a restore and then re-performing the same process. Again, no success...

    Same behavior on two iPhone 4s, an iPad 3G and an iPad Wifi.

    I am running Windows 7 on a Macbook Pro under Bootcamp.

    I am going to try testing using another computer as well as via VMware.

    Guess that RC1 BETA2 is very beta...

    Update: It appears that a reboot between attempts resolves the DFU Mode Skipping issue, however there is still not an improvement in the situation.

    iPhoneBrowser is also unable to browse outside of /var/mobile, implying that I am still within a chroot jail.

    I've just finished writing up a guide of the whole process, and just waiting upon moderator approval, before it gets released into HowTo section in the Genius Bar bit of the forum. Perhaps that would help you
