  • 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 don't care about 4.0/1, I just want to be on 4.1
      FALSE, 4.1 is JAILBREAKable for every iPhone starting this Sunday or whenever GreenPoisi0n is released

      But Unlocking it for any carrier is not currently possible on the new baseband which is why ppl are trying to preserve there baseband so that they can unlock it when they go to 4.1, be aware this is only possible if you can downgrade to 3.1.2 because of custom firmwares and blackra1n but that's another thread

      You need to read the first post again I think. Only works on the A4 devices.

      EDIT: I would assume this no longer works as it states "this only works as long as Apple is still signing 4.0.2"

      Or are they still signing something from amonth ago?

      It only works on iPhone 4. And yes it still works. It was just saying you need 4.0.2 SHSH back then if you were on 4.1 already because while Apple was still signing 4.0.2 it was actually possible to downgrade iPhone 4 baseband.

I'm beginning to wonder which member is going to slag off this community because of thieves and whiny children.
      I have referenced this site, since the original iphone; but after seeing all the post similar to the one I quoted, I have decided to register and clear things up. To those like KartRacer and all the others that share this mindset... the one that believes: "Users should be grateful that dev teams create such tools, and we are blessed to use them. Be grateful, bow down, and shut up." Please understand that these dev teams, one way or another, are running a business. By all means, correct me if I am wrong, but Cydia is an unrestricted app store to most users. Surely you are aware that most of the apps that Cydia carries have a purchase price. That means somewhere down the line these devs are getting paid.

      The average user is under the impression that the dev-teams are making a way for users to jailbreak. I think we all agree that this is true. Thus, the average user uses the tool the make and become a customer, they spend money for products and like any customer, expect it to be properly maintained so they can properly use what they bought. Not like a car mind you, more in the sense that customers expect AT&T to "maintain" and enhance the network they rely on to use the phone they bought. I believe this is reasonable, and once you see it from their perspective maybe you guys will understand and either correct the misunderstanding or cease this "all must worship the devs" attitude.

      If I have somehow messed up in my logic here, please offer to clear things up.

      EDIT: SEE MY NEXT POST

      I made my first post before reading the car analogy, which I find to be funny, because I pointed out this is not like buying and maintaining a car (though nice touch by adding the wheel locks). Anyway, I'm curious about the accuracy of that analogy. The writer of it makes it seem like no chronic dev-team/dev-team/exploit discover etc etc sells anything to the jailbreak community. If this is the case, then I would agree; they don't "owe" it to the community and we should be thankful.... but I still don't buy into the whole "bow down to the devs" attitude, and this is why.

      If they didn't make it, someone else will. This is because people are now making money off Cydia, and that is where everything changes. Saurik would have to step up, and get it done; because lets face it: he and the developers wont want to lose out on the money being made. The jailbreak community is no longer a free playground, people are paying money... point made

Then what is the difference between this and Jailbreakme? Please correct my ignorance or misinformation.. Thank you
      Correct me if im wrong but those with an ip4 on 4.0.2 dont have an updated baseband and can update to 4.1 with tiny unbrella without updating their baseband so can in fact still have an unlock. And yes you can still jailbreak it difference between the two are jailbreakme was userland and was patched in 4.0.2.

      Okay this is the first time I've seen this dangit...

      I was planing on buying the iphone4 and selling my 3GS unlocked but it looks like I'll have to buy the i4 now and wait for 4.2 unlock for the 3GS so I can sell it

      is this logical if I'm with AT&T, all I want is jailbreak i4, my concern is are they going to come out with an S model to fix the bootrom exploit or what ever it is?

      JAILBREAK INFO- from the website

      The SHAtter exploit based GreenPois0n tool is all set to arrive on October 10. But unfortunately, it will only jailbreak the fourth-generation devices like the iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 4G and the Apple TV 2G. This limitation is because of the nature of how the low level bootrom exploit SHAtter works.

      Both the members of iPhone and Chronic Dev Teams have confirmed that the creator of Spirit and JailbreakMe, Comex, has more userland exploits in possession which can jailbreak iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 3G in future. But don’t expect him to release them anytime soon. Since userland exploits can easily be patched by Apple, they are going to wait for Apple to release the final version of iOS 4.2 before releasing the new userland based jailbreak.

      @geraldo72 no, the underlying SHAtter exploit doesn’t work on that device. Wait for the next userland JB from comex for that.

      @Jerometick something like that wouldn’t be before official 4.2 is out (at the very least)
