  • greenpois0n released!


    greenpois0n has been released for all, the jailbreak from the Chronic Dev Team. Though at the moment there seems to be a bug where greenpois0n is not actually running the ramdisk on some systems, this should be worked out soon. That's not a harmful bug - it just means while the program will think you're jailbroken, you won't be. EDIT: Seems RC3 should be up shortly to fix the issue.

    We'll have a full guide up shortly, although it's pretty simple. We've got a full guide up here. At the moment it's Windows only, although they have a Mac button on the site - it just doesn't do anything right now.

    Reminder that this uses the exploit from Geohot, thus saving SHAtter for a later date. Major win for the entire community!

    Awesome job to all the devs involved!!!

    Initially, this will be a Windows-only release. This is due to some technical complications that we soon hope to correct. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Thanks to geohot for the bootrom USB exploit. We have opted to use that instead of SHAtter for the sake of exploit presevation.

    This release of greenpois0n supports:
    - iPhone 4
    - iPhone 3G S
    - iPod touch (4th Generation)
    - iPod touch (3rd Generation)
    - iPad

    Soon there will be another release, adding things like support for:
    - Apple TV (2nd Generation)
    - iPod touch (2nd Generation)
    Chronic Dev Team Blog

    Edit Poseidon: This uses the exact same exploit as Limera1n so there is no reason to jailbreak again over your existing jailbreak or restore and re-jailbreak with GP.

      It is saved with your iTunes backup file. If you want to avoid this and do a clean restore of the firmware. Just use appbackup to back everything up, then SSH into the phone and pull the backup file out and you can manually reload it after restore.

I didn't know this was the case and imglad i have an iphone 4 cuz id be frustrated.. Btw bud, i do this every year cuz i have a problem bout wanting the newest and latest.. If you sell your old device right when the new one comig out, you esentially get paid to upgrade.. For ex. sold my 3gs in july for bout $400 and upgrade to iphone 4 was $299 haha.. Just a thought
      Don't we all!

      I highly discourage anyone from using appbackup, pkgbackup, etc. when updating to a major update of iOS (3.0, 3.1, 4.0, 4.x, etc.). There are always packages that are not yet updated to the newer iOS and they tend to cause some rather annoying and unpleasant errors. These apps lack the ability to determine/filter what apps and packages are 4.1 (for example) compatible and what are not. Granted it's basically impossible to expect this of them when the majority of devs can't even list whether or not their apps are compatible or not.

      When restoring your iDevice to the same iOS that it already has on it or if you're downgrading from say 4.0 to 3.1.3, those backup apps are very handy. I use pkgbackup on my devices all the time when doing general restores, but i won't go near it when it comes to upgrading. IMHO it is always best to stay as "fresh" as possible when doing a new update. I know it can be a pain doing everything manually, but it's certainly worth it as you will experience far fewer errors, and those that you do encounter will be easily fixable because you will know what the last package(s) were that you installed.

      Has anyone tried this with Parallels through a Mac? Does it work? Limera1n didn't when I tried a few days ago.
    1. mortopher's Avatar

      No, the way mac/parallels handles USB devices does not allow for it to work.

      I figured. I'll just wait for the inevitable Mac release.

      Yes but you must have itunes installed on parallels side. I backed up via mac side, then ran limera1n under win 7 side no problem. I had a few pop up boxes asking if I wanted to keep usb connection and I clicked yes. But worked perfectly.

      Interesting. I had no luck with it on parallels.

      Hm. Maybe its an OS issue. Some people have been getting it to work with 7, but no report on XP. I don't a 7 virtual machine, too much space I'm not willing to allow.

      I'll try it out later tonight.

      ^ That could be true. Both mac's I tried it with only had XP.

      I agree and that's why I've always started fresh everytime. But this time, there are 3 games in particular that I do not want to lose my progress in, and it's only those that I want the progress back. Is there an easy way that I can manually SSH and get those saved files? And then after all is said and done (jailbroke 4.1 etc... I could just reput them where they were?) Or am I dreaming?

      I agree with this 100%. but how do you suggest that I save all of my progress in my games for example? Is there a way to SSH into the phone and pull the saves out?

      For app store games you can use juicephone on mac or iphone backup extractor on windows to get them from your backup on your computer.
