  • 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.

      No, they're going to do it, but with geohotz's exploit, not theirs. This is because they don't want to waste an exploit. But since they have to remake the jb, it'll take a while

      Hrmm...so for people who have used lr and they wanted to use cd's remake do they have to do a complete restore, load the backup back on via itunes then install their new tweak?

      If their "exploit" is based on SHAtter which Apple can't fix what's the point in waiting if Apple can't fix it?

      Because apple is probably just going to do what they did with the 3GS and patch it by having it not work on all new iPhone 4s and iPT 4s. So the dev team can save SHAtter an use it on future devices

      Essentially it requires Apple to implement new hardware into the next device(s). If they release it now, there's no point cuz there's already a (buggy but) working jb and that just gives Apple the head's up on what to do to patch it up for the next device.
