Greenpois0n failed but Limera1n worked?
Hey everyone. Just a question: I tried multiple times to jailbreak my 3GS 4.1 (FW 05.14.02) using Greenpois0n and it failed numerous times. I tried restoring before and followed all the suggested steps. I'm pretty tech savvy and have jailbroken many times before. This is the first time I ever had any issues. So I figured I'd try Limera1n and lo and behold it worked on the first attempt.
My question is: Should I worry that Greenpois0n didn't work? I know that some have reported different issues with both jailbreaks as well. Anything I need to worry about since I used Limera1n?

Thanks for the feedback. So far everything is working well. Got most of my favorite tweaks and apps back on... I was not jailbroken for a few weeks and it was driving me nuts! The iPhone, once jailbroken, is the perfect device for me.

Not sure if you saw this, but Farbod21 posted this, good info, on why you should use greenpois0n if you don't need hacktivation. Worth the read.

Maybe. But I tried 4 times and each time it failed. Everything looked good, and I know it was in DFU mode correctly. One of the failures required a full restore to get the phone working again - the phone hung at the Sync with iTunes message even after a reboot of the phone and my laptop.
I'll stay on Limera1n unless I see issues start to crop up.

I tried Limera1n the night it was released and until RC3 I was unsuccessful in getting Cydia set up. Really though in the end if you want to be JB'd it doesnt matter what tool you use. I have not had any issues with phone function or operation using Limera1n.
