    What do you guys think about these two jailbreaks?
    Which one is better? or.. are they both just the same?

    Just want opinions so I can decide which one I want to jailbreak my iPod with :cool:
    Thanks

    Limera1n worked fine for me on iPT4 4.1. The only trick is to follow the directions EXACTLY. (Only press and let go exactly the buttons it tells you to only when it tells you to.

    So is Greenpois0n tethered or not? Originally they said it would be tethered but they've changed the exploit and I can't find a mention of tethering on the Greenpois0n pages at jailbreakmatrix.com.

    It actual jailbreak is tethered, but they use a userland exploit to allow it to be untethered.

    What the non-geeks need to know is it's untethered for 4.1. Greenpois0n is more stable and Geohot stole comex's exploit for limera1n. And Greenpois0n is WAY more stable. And Greenpois0n is the offical chronic dev team JB.

    My vote is greenpois0n... I had limera1n and it JB'd fine but I had a lot of instability. Crashes, reboots, app crashes. Loaded up same packages on greenpois0n via pkgbackup and have seen none of that!

    Purely anectodal, but Greenpoison's probably more stable. When resetting the springboard with Limerain, the little "loading circle" would always overlap with the apple logo. My iPod was also stuck looping that screen so I was forced to restore it and re-jailbreak with Greenpoison instead. Also little other things with Limerain like going into iTunes and having all the apps not inside of folders in the App Sync screen.

    Weird, mine's the opposite. Apps crash more frequently than I did with limera1n before (different device though)
