If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the last few years, it’s to never underestimate the hacker community -- they love a challenge, and they’re awfully resilient. Case in point: Apple’s latest iOS 5, which has already been jailbroken using an iPod touch.
There’s been a flurry of activity on the iOS jailbreak scene over the last week, but we Mac users have had to sit on the sidelines for most of it, since both the Limera1n and GreenPois0n tools were Windows-only -- but that’s changing.
The limera1n jailbreak is ready and willing for your 4.1 iOS device--and at this point, we really hope it's not the iPhone 3G that's running that thing.
But here's the kicker of the limera1n jailbreak--it's for Windows only, and it's not expected to work with Apple TV (though the website says it's "technically supported") or come available for Linux and OS X users for quite some time.
