It has nothing to do with MB or MC model.

    EDIT please don't do that
    I didn't have 3.2.2 pre-loaded. I was running 3.2.1 and updated to 3.2.2 immediately before jailbreaking.

    I also failed the first 3 times I tried Limera1n. Then I tried it with iTunes running and I adjusted the timing of the button presses/releases, and it worked. Back it the old days, when the first jailbreak tools were out, many people had problems jailbreaking their iPhones because they couldn't put the device into DFU mode correctly, and it all had to do with the timing of the button presses and releases. You need to be pretty precise. Restore mode and DFU mode are not the same thing.

    i made one small mistake during the install. the box told me to let go of the power button so i let go of both the top and home button at the same time. it asked me to hold the buttons again. i just held onto the home button and i was golden

    I have one question.

    Now that limera1n has installed Cydia and my 3.2.2 is fully jailbroken, do I still need the limera1n app on my ipad or can I just delete it. Cydia is there so do I have to still keep limera1n as an app?

    Hi, I was on the same boat with all these unsuccessful people, who couldn't succeed the JB operation with limera1n. Then I managed with the following process (My Setup is windows 7 x64, iTunes 10, limera1n Beta-4, 3.2.2. iPad fw, iPad 64 Gb, Wi-Fi & 3G w/3.2.2):
    1. Made a restore with iTunes and 3.2.2. fw (factory reset)
    2. After reactivation left iTunes open and opened Limera1n.
    3. Did onscreen commands. Voila raindrop showed up on the screen.
    4. Rebooted iPad and installed Cydia. (The rest is usual stuff)

    Hope it works for you also...

    Mine was a 3.2.1 upgraded via iTunes to 3.2.2. It is a 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G and I followed the instructions and I have JB on the first attempt.

    I am not sure what fixed it the only new thing I did was run from a completely fresh Itunes and OS. Why I had no problems with my 3 other iPads and only this one I have no idea. I bought this iPad just last week but I doubt that had anything to do with it.

    If anything good came out of this it was discovering this forum.
    YOU ARE A GOD!!! I tried your method and finally was able to successfully jailbreak after 9872 tries. I was trying on my windows 7 64bit pc and getting all the problems. I thought I tried everything until i read this. I thought I would give it a try and low and behold it worked! The pc I got it to work on was a 32bit windows 7 install with no prior itunes installed. It was a fresh pc! I heard the 32bit/64bit difference has no meaning, but for all those people who still cant jailbreak and are getting stuck on the "usb plug to itunes" screen I would give this a shot! Just use a fresh computer that has no prior itunes data on it. I hope this helps someone!!

    Odd. I tried a fresh install of XP with a fresh iTunes. Didn't work (probably 20-30 attempts.) So I tried a fresh install of Windows 7 with iTunes. Same thing.

    Hmmm....
