I have an factory unlock iPhone 3GS running on iOS 4.1 and jailbreak with limera1n now it have problem and always crash, so I did a restore with itune and using tinyumbrella to start TSS Server. It done without any error. after that I using limera1n to jailbreak it again but I couldn't see the limera1n logo during jailbreak process and finally I don't have limera1n app in my iPhone. so anyone who know what is the problem ? or I did something wrong? does it require internet connection during jailbreak process?

you may have restored to 4.2.1, limera1n is not compatible with 4.2.1 devices. use greenpois0n (

There's no reason to restore your 3Gs using the TSS server coz 4.2.1 is jailbreakable, you have no issues with baseband preservation either so you can always restore to stock 4.2.1 via itunes. Check your settings/general/about page to see what firmware you are running, if it's 4.2.1 then just use GP. There are other options also like Sn0wbreeze (Win) & Pwnage (Mac) but these require you to restore to a custom 4.2.1 firmware. If you're old bootrom there is also Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 for an untethered jailbreak.

It sure I did a stock restore 4.1 and basband is 15.14.02 and every thing work fine. only problem is I cannot jailbreak this 4.1. I have try both limeta1n and GP. for limera1n I cannot see limera1n logo during jailbreak process and for GP after success put the phone in DFU mode and click on jailbreak button it said jailbreak fail close and try again. does both jailbreak tools limera1n and GP require internet connection during JB process ?

GP doesn't work on 4.1, it requires 4.2.1. Limera1n should work. Both require internet connection.
