The rift between Geohot and Chronic Dev team seems to have hit the sky already with LimeRa1n Jailbreak coming directly from Geohot. The Chronic Dev team claims that Geohot stole their untethered exploit just so that he can release it first. This Limera1n version is for Windows only and will jailbreak iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch 4G.
Here is what Geo Hot has to say about Limera1n:
limera1n, 6 months in the making
iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G
4.0-4.1 and beyond+++
limera1n is unpatchable

Here are the step by step instructions on jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad using LimeRa1n:
- The first step is to download Limera1n Jailbreak for Windows and save it on your desktop.
- Now connect you phone / iPod Touch / iPad to the computer and make sure that iTunes is completely closes.
- Now simply double click on LimeRa1n icon followed by clicking Make It Ra1n.
And there you go! You have the successfully jailbroken your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, probably for life, on iOS 4.x.
Update: Geohot pulled down the download link because of the rift between Chronic Dev team.
Update 2: Comex (the main guy behind the exploit) has given permission to Geohot, so it is official now. The download link is again available on the original website.
