Problem Installing Limera1 on 4.1
Need help guys. Followed the installation video but after I hold the home button + power keys & then release I get the image on my phone of the itunes logo & the usb cable and the prompt from itunes to restore?? I'm unable to do anything else but restore. I pop up window from Limera1 that shows on the video does not show up. Help???

Your phone is entering Recovery Mode instead of DFU mode. Make sure you.
1. Turn off your phone completely and then connect to computer, where it will immediately start to turn on, apple logo will appear.
2. Hold down both the sleep and home buttons for ten seconds so you see the phone go off again.
3. Let go of sleep button only, hold on to home button for about 10 more seconds.
4. Phone is now in DFU mode (screen will be black)

You need to restore and try it again. Wait until you get the activation notification on your phone, and you see the logo before doing the JB...

Please use greenpois0n if you can normally activate with iTunes. Also make sure your iPhone activates properly before implementing the JB...

Thanks for all of the help. Wound up going with Greenpois0n instead & is works perfect so far. I read some other threads & also changes the root & mobile passwords, so I think I'm good to go now. I do have another question though & I'm assuming its pretty basic but I am new to all of this. Now that the phone is jailbroken, can I still sync with iTunes like normal or will I lose the jailbreak once I sync??

I had an NON JB iphone 3gs on 4.1 with 5.13.02.
I tried to JB using Limera1, i follow all the procedures and I got stuck on limera pop up "DFU mode" and it did not do anything. So i cancelled the whole process and when i try to start my ipod i got to the restore option on itunes. I restored it multiple times and it keeps coming to the same....
could somebody please help me? Thank you so much
