It now appears that GeoHot wanted his jailbreak to be released instead of the SHAtter exploit since the newer iBoots show his hole fixed. There are reports of “unstable jailbreak release” by few early testers of Limera1n. We have not yet tested it on any device so use it at your own risk and let us know how it goes in the comments section below!
