Now that the new limera1n jailbreak from geohot has been out for over 24 hours, we’re beginning to get a little feel for how it’s going – via comments on the site here, iPhone forums, and Twitter. My impression is that there are few if any major bugs being reported with this new jailbreak. Just about all the issues I’ve seen reported are with doing the actual jailbreak itself.

So I thought this might be a good time to share a few tips we’ve gathered up that should help you achieve jailbreaking success with limerai1n. Hit the jump for a few good ones …

Some things to do to help increase your chances of success with the limera1n jailbreak:

— Make sure you’re running the latest version of iTunes. Have the app check for updates or just download the latest version from the web.

— Make sure you are running the latest beta of limera1n itself. It is already up to beta 4 – get it here: http://limera1n.com/

— Turn off passcode lock on your device (temporarily, during the jailbreak)

— Try more than once – it seems to take a couple tries sometimes.

— If it appears to work but you don’t see a limera1n icon, try searching for it with Spotlight.

— Try a reboot and / or a hard reboot.

— Check out some more good tips over at the iPhone Download Blog.

All pretty standard stuff I know – but hopefully enough to get you past any hiccups when trying out limera1n. If you have other tips that have worked for you, please share in the comments.
