  • 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.

      There is a fairly lengthy thread (stickied i believe) somewhere on this site that discusses the gaming issue. Personally I just start from scratch each time, but then again I don't play many games on my iPhone at all.

      Hoorahhh, it worked with my ipad 3.2.2. I tried limera1n like 100 times with all the combination and still no JB. I tried this GP this morning and it worked on 2nd try, eventhough it forced me to restore to manufacture firmware (3.2.2). Thank you thank you thank you DevTeam for your genius effort.

      Surprising since it's the same exploit with a different GUI

      Shatter won't be out for quite a while. You will be waiting a long time. Just upgrade to 4.1 and use limera1n and be done with it. Dont forget to preserve baseband if your device will allow it.

      You have to turn "wi-fi" on in order to get facetime working over 3g for some reason. Just turn on your wi-fi toggle and once you've connected to the person you wanna facetime with you can turn it back off to save power. Worked for me, and you do not need a wi-fi "connection" to do this.

      Does this work on 4.2 beta on iPad?

      Also, I'm rofl'ing at how when limera1n came out everyone on CDT's side was dissing on it for not being perfect first release, then GP comes out and first release doesn't work at all. I didn't take sides originally, but I just find the irony especially funny.
