  • Greenpois0n To Be Released This Sunday!


    That's right! The developers behind the newest jailbreak, greenpois0n, have informed the world of it's estimated arrival date of October 10th, 2010.

    Developer Joshua Hill, aka p0sixninja, recently tweeted "Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM".



    While it's important to remember that this is only an estimated release date and our friend chpwn puts it into decent perspective "Please note that an ETA is, by definition, an estimate. There may still be delays, although we will try for there not to be any." Chpwn has been working with Saurik on improving Cydia, but by the sounds of it, it will not be ready to be released alongside the greenpois0n release, but it will be something else to look forward to after jailbreaking.



    It will be important to watch out for fakes in the meantime, and make sure that you follow us here for the release. The servers will more than likely take a huge hit, and hopefully we can arrange something like we did with jailbreakme.com to act as a mirror. Keep your eyes peeled.

    While it is not confirmed yet, we are hoping to see an untethered jailbreak for every iDevice currently available, however don't be disappointed if its not yet untethered.

    Get your iPods, iPhones, iPads and AppleTV ready for this sundays "funday".

    Sunday - greenpois0n - Be there. 10/10/10 10:10:10AM GMT

    Edit Poseidon: This will only work on the iPhone 4, iPad and iPod Touch 4G. It does /not/ support any older devices as they do not contain the A4 chip that contains the exploit.

    Secondly this is not an unlock and will not help those that have updated to 4.0.2 or 4.1.

      I've read all 15 pages now, and... owed a jailbreak? You're kidding right? First, you bought the phone, to use as is, right? Then some cool hackers figured out how to jailbreak it so you (or more likely some hard working dev) could use it in cool new ways. Then cydia comes to make it easy for you to use cool stuff. Then some hard working dev wants a couple of dollars for his efforts, so you buy his app. Now you are 'owed' a jailbreak so you can have Apple's latest and greatest firmware and your app you forked out a whole 2-3 bucks on?!? Get stuffed! You are owed NOTHING. Don't upgrade, keep your jb/apps, or you take your chances, and hope to use your old apps, or do it yourself! JB your own phone, make your own app store, your own apps, and do it all better than these folks who are doing it for free/fun and letting you in on it! Sheesh, unbelievable. :-)

      First off, NO CREDIBLE SOURCE WITH FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE SAID THIS WOULD WORK ON ALL DEVICES!!! The writers for every tech site, INCLUDING MMI, misinterpreted and misspoke by saying that this will jailbreak all devices. You can't blame the devs for this bc there are too many rumors going around to bother trying to disspell any of them.

      Secondly, you are owed NOTHING. When you bought your cydia apps/themes you obviously did so on a jailbroken device. Keep those jailbroken devices and you can use your cydia apps for life. There was never a guarantee or promise made that the apps woul be usable on a future device or even a future iOS version. Buyer beware.

      Some of you people act like these apps are $40 a piece and are probably the same people that whined when MyWi 4.0 got bumped to $20.

      I can honestly say I have spent around $150 on cydia apps and themes (at the least) and all along vie understood that there may come a new device or new version of iOS that will not be jailbreakable.

      Take care of your iDevices ao they last, always save your shsh blobs, and finally grow up, children.

      IF it was tethered, I think they would have told us right away, just my opinion.

      Better be untethered...

      mmmmmm Green Pie.....

      can anyone confirm if greenpois0n will be able to just rejailbreak or will we have to install a fresh firmware and re-install all our cydia apps and themes? Thanks Guys

      It's good for those devices though as they are "bootromd", so the dev teams have more time to focus on other devices.
