    Because of all the people asking about what problems can happen and things that can go wrong with Limera1n, I thought it would be good to have a thread dedicated to that. Please post your story here if something messed up while you were jailbreaking with Limera1n, what you did to fix it, or if you know a fix for someone else's problems. Hopefully this will be a sort of troubleshooting guide you can use in case something goes wrong with jailbreaking your own phone with Limera1n.

    One problem that I've read was some icons not showing up after jailbreaking and not coming back after a restore. Anyone have more information about this?

    everything worked and is working as it should for me.

    the only small thing was the cydia icon didn't initially show up. but that's a reported bug. just reboot and it was there. Only happens the first time.

    It would appear only Engadget has ever had that problem :p they haven't clarified it either.

    I don't have any real problems except the Cydia icon not appearing before a reboot. Cydia just seems very slower than the App Store, probably because of all the people trying to get it. I'm happy with limera1n, working as it should be. I won't need Greenpois0n which is delayed more anyways :mad:

    Run it in Bootcamp. That's what I did.

    A few issues.

    1. Hangs on DFU screen
    2. If I get past the DFU screen, it says it was successful, but NO CYDIA icon.

    Then you're not doing it right. You need to see the Lime icon on your iPhone for it to have worked.

    If you're not using the latest version of iTunes 10, it probably won't work. If you're using a VMWare Windows it likely won't work.

    Follow the instructions on a Windows computer and it will work. End of story.
