Jailbreak using Limera1n


While may be the easiest method to Jailbreak, it doesn’t work with 4.1 firmware. You can use Limera1n to jailbreak 4.1 devices and it’s almost as easy. 


  1. Download the Limera1n installer from the source link below
  2. Connect your iOS device to your computer
  3. Launch the Limera1n program. You may have to run the program as Admin in Windows
  4. Click “make it ra1n”
  5. Now you must put the device into DFU mode. To do this, hold down the Home and Power button to 5-7 seconds. Then, release the Power button, and continue to hold the Home button for an additional 10 seconds or so. Don’t worry if iTunes pops up.
  6. That’s it! You’ll see a new Limera1n icon on your home screen, which will allow you to download Cydia, which you’ll need to grab jailbreak apps. 


Jailbreak using Redsn0w 0.9.6b2

Congratulations, you can jailbreak using redsn0w 0.9.6. This method may not be as easy as some of the other methods, so if you have any other jailbreak methods available we recommend you attempt those first.

Please read the instructions below carefully before attempting.

iPod Touch 2G Users: You must determine if you have an "MC" Model. This jailbreak does not work with iPod Touch 2G "MC"
