  • 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.

      And someone else answered the question about this. Thanks. Thought maybe the iPhone 4 at least would get 4.2 too
      I'm only assuming 4.2 is iPad only as 3.2 was. Makes sense to me though. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

      My bad.

      That's correct, Apple can't patch the bootrom. So your iDevice is always jailbreakable from now on.

      I'm as eager as anyone to update my iPhone4 to 4.1, but wouldn't it be smart for the chronicdevteam to wait until the release of 4.2 before they release their jailbreak tool? I would hate to see Apple patch whatever hole they've employed prior to releasing the new firmware.

      Once again, the exploit Chronic Dev has used is not patchable as it is in the bootrom of the phone. Apple need to revise the hardware to fix it.

      I think you are right hey maybe we should hold off still the iPhone 5, no wait, there's the iPhone 6 coming after that so maybe we should wait more?

      Please read my friend. Greenposin will use the shatter exploit which is a hardware exploit. So unless Apple changes the hardware ,just like they did with the 3gs ie: MC versions , you will always be able to jailbreak no matter what frimware. I have just read this whole thread in about 5 mins and its was mentioned on like 3 out of the 4 pages.

      You and I both know that 80% of users here don't read the whole thread nor do they really understand the difference between firmware/basebands/SHSH etc and would rather just ask for help than try to help them selves by searching for answers.

      Judging by this twitter by pod2g, it's untethered.

      I know you're not being a jerk. Someone actually already corrected me further up the thread.
