Apparently, GeoHot is working on a new tool, called Limera1n. There is no word on “the streets” about the tool, so we don’t know for sure what is this all about. It could be a new jailbreaking/unlocking tool for 3.1.3 , but we tend to think that it will run on OS 4.0 and it will include the iPad as well.

Keep an eye on limera1n.com . We will keep you updated. Stay tuned…
