  • 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.

      Basically Greenpois0n will the the thing on the computer that you can jailbreak your iPhone with. Kinda like redsn0w for example. Shatter is just what they called their exploit. Shatter means nothing to the normal jailbreaker I think

      Can Cydia back up my apps/purchases? I'm on 4.01 jailbroken with a perfectly set up phone and when I upgrade to 4.1 to fix proximity sensor and re-jailbreak, I don't want to have to manually download everything again.

      No it does not! It means the potential for an unlock is there.

      God, I wish people would READ UP on this rather than asking questions that have been answered many times over.

      I don't know why they are going to release one for 4.1 when 4.2 is coming out in a month, they should just wait. Also what about the unlocks?

      At the moment, no Cydia can't back up your apps. I think saurik is adding this feature in. Who knows when it will go live though. Hopefully Sunday the funday.

      SHAtter is a bootrom exploit. It can be ported to each new firmware that is released. Soooo, they don't need to wait as Apple can't patch it.

      Also, 4.2 is iPad only if I'm not mistaken.

      So what if they have? It's up to them when they release the tools that they created......

      Just be grateful it's coming.

      I say the same thing!!! I won't update or be able to jailbreak my iPad until the next iPad comes out! Watch

      And someone else answered the question about this. Thanks. Thought maybe the iPhone 4 at least would get 4.2 too

      Can't wait. Wifey's been asking and asking me to jailbreak her ip4. Anyone noticed the prox sensor issue fixed with the 4.1 update. Great job GP

      Ah, yeah I forgot about that, my fault. So Apple can't update the bootrom on a new update? The bootrom is hardware? 4.2 isn't just for iPad, there are many updates and features for iPhone as well.
