Step Five
You iPad will now be placed in recovery mode.

Press both the power and the home buttons.

When Limera1n asks you to, release the power button.

Your phone will now be in DFU mode

As limera1n performs its exploit you will see the image of a lime raindrop on your iPad.

Limera1n will let you know when it is complete.

Step Six
After you power back on your iPad you will see a new icon on the SpringBoard entitled
limera1n. Press it to continue.

Step Seven
Once Limera1n opens select
Cydia then press the Install button at the top right of the screen.

Step Eight
Once the
Cydia installation has completed you must reboot your iPad.

When your iPad has restarted you can run Cydia. Let it do all the necessary updates.

NOTE*: To remove the
limera1n icon from your desktop you can install CyDelete from Cydia then use it to delete the application. Eventually this capability should be present in limera1n itself.

***A big thanks goes to Geohot who made this jailbreak possible.
