LimeRa1n Not Working? Hereâ€™s Why
iPhone hacker Geohot stepped back into the jailbreak limelight the other day by releasing his latest iPhone jailbreak solution, LimeRa1n; however there may be a couple of things you’ve missed that may cause LimeRa1n to not work.
According to an article over on iPhone Download Blog by Sebastien, one of the reasons LimeRa1n may not work is because the jailbreak is only for Windows at the moment, so if you are using a Mac then LimeRa1n won’t work.
Another reason is that LimeRa1n also requires the latest version of iTunes, so iTunes 10, and if you don’t have this then you need to download it for LimeRa1n to work. You also need to run LimeRa1n as an administrator on your PC and to do so simply click on the LimeRa1n icon and choose “run as administrator.”
Another issue you may face is once you have run LimeRa1n with no issues the LimeRa1n icon doesn’t show on your iPhone, so reboot, and if that doesn’t work then you may need to attempt a hard reset, to do this hold Home and Power together until the device closes down.
Apparently there are some users of LimeRa1n who are reporting that their iPhone gets stuck on the Apple Logo when using LimeRa1n, so if that happens you can follow the guys “get out of reboot loop” article by hitting up here.
