  • 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.

      I thought from what I read when Shatter was first talked about that it's an exploit that would jailbreak the phone without worrying about software upgrades because the exploit can only be closed by hardware upgrades? Am I dreaming this? Anyone hear this? If that's so, how is NOT releasing it saving it?

      once again please know what your talking about. Iphone 4 you can use tiny umbrella to preserve your baseband to unlock on 4.1. With iphone 3gs there is no such thing as preserving baseband with tinyumbrella. Not until they release pwnagetool or an unlock is released for 4.1 please dont mis inform people. I only responded to that question because he said he had a 3gs!

      I'm sorry but whats the point of GreenPois0n again? I'm running 4.1 jailbroken with 01.59.00 BB on my iPhone 4. Wasn't the whole point of Greenpois0n to jailbreak iPhone 4s??

      Just download facebreak 1.15 updated to work with 4.1 although I've heard reports from others needing go have wifi on (but not connected necessarily) to get rid of "please connect to a wifi network" when running FT on 3G/edge. It's inconvenient but at least it works sans this bug

So well done @chronicdevteam! It's a pitty about the bug (not installing Cydia for some people), but hey, it's the initial release. Limera1n had 4 BETA's pushed out within minutes after the release lol.

      I may use Greenpois0n sometime this week, after the bugs have been ironed out. Although, I haven't had a single problem with limera1n (yet? lol), so there isn't much need for me to use Greenpois0n. If it had an option for custom boot logos, then I'd defo use it. I was excited about hearing that lmera1n/GP were bootrom exploits, I've never had a custom boot logo!

      Question time: I asked CDT and p0sixninja this on twitter, but they haven't replied yet. Do you guys know if I would have to do a clean restore/restore from backup to use GP if I already have limera1n? Or can I just run GP over it, without restoring, and will it replace limera1n? I'm guessing I'll have to restore, which is another reason pushing me away from using GP. I told myself that if I made it ra1n, I'd just get a nice theme and some tweaks to keep me going until GP was released. Now I'm sitting here with my iPhone 4 almost exactly the way I want it, I couldn't resist getting all my favourite apps/tweaks! I'll let the story pan out over this week and see what benefits GP has over limera1n. Thanks!
      If you do switch over, I recommend using PkgBackup off of cydia, it's $4.99 but wll worth it. It creates a backup of all your packages and saves it into a contact on your phone so that you can then restore all packages at a later time or even on another phone.

      With the iPhone 4 you can do it and I wont argue with you for the 3gs because i have not tried it yet.. I am going to try it on my wifes tonight and let you know if this is possible. Above, riskingkazuya05 states there is a pwnage tool to unlock and jailbreak on the 3gs, but im not aware of that neither so idk. We dont need unlocks as we are on At&t, but I like having them because the value of the phone is higher that way

      I used PWnagetool to jailbreak to 4.0.1 and unlocked using ultrasn0w..anything past 4.0.2 your baseband gets updated with stock 4.1 firmware, therefore you either have to have an iphone 4 to use tinyumbrella to preserve your baseband, or you have to use pwnagetool which has not been updated by the iphone dev team yet to support cooked firmware for 4.1 thus preserving your baseband. Believe me i would have already jb to 4.1 if i could preserve my Baseband on my iphone 3gs =)

      I use apt backup and it worked fine for me after backup and restore, but i do like this for the fact that you said you can restore packages on other phones.. But how? It just saves as a contact and thats it??

      Damn that sucks.. Might be a dumb question but have you tried to preserve the BB with tiny umbrella yet? Im sure you probably have. I cant understand why it wouldnt work for the 3gs and the tool is only for the 4g in the way of preservation.. Hmm??

      Not sure but this Tweet is from the guy that made tinyumbrella so i am pretty sure he knows what he is talking about.


      @notcom semaphore
      All for the Nth time - Umbrella cannot protect ANY but the iPhone 4 baseband. Please don't try it in 3G/3GS and then tell me it failed.

      Anyone please coorect me if i am wrong, but really there isnt much of a difference.. Limera1n was released a day before greenpois0n and stole all the thunder of the CDT, and thus stoppig them from releasing greenpois0n using the SHAtter exploit.. Since CDT made the right choice to just implement geohots Limera1n exploit into greenpois0n rather than reveal two exploits to Apple at once, greenpois0n and Limera1n are prettt much the same with no main difference

      What an epic fail by the Dev team... Geo released a bug free version with no ramdisk issues...

      Dev team could have saved this for the new hardware upgrade.

      SHAtter finds a bootrom exploit that can jailbreak all A4 chip based iproducts. This is a hardware exploit so it is immune to firmware upgrades. However, this method of jailbreak is tethered so you're iproduct needs a computer to reboot and still be jailbroken. @comex uses a second userland exploit to "untether" the jailbreak. The second exploit is what Apple can patch causing a tethered jailbreak only or forcing @comex to produce a new method for untethering SHAtter.

      Since Limera1n also uses a bootrom exploit (different one) to create a tethered jailbreak for all A4 iproducts regardless of firmware, and @comex's userland exploit to "untether" it, the dev team decided revealing one bootrom exploit was far better than revealing both. Since SHAtter was saved, Apple doesn't know about it, and the exploit could potentially still be there in the next generation of devices (A4+ chip).

      Ya the only difference between the 2 jailbreaks right now is limera1n works to jb and greenpois0n does not. It has been pulled from greenpois0n - Mmmm...pois0n probably to fix the no cydia bug.

      I don't know if this is happening with anyone else, but I jailbroke with limera1n and used aptbackup and pkgbackup to restore my apps. What I noticed was that my cydia apps had icons and everything, but that the apps themselves weren't installed on the phone anymore. So what I thought was an app not working because of the jb or OS upgrade turned out to just be me needed to actually reinstall that app. Worked for my3G - Facetime works fine - and a few others like iFile and Rename. (some ACTUALLY aren't compatible at the moment though, like Folder Enhancer and Background Remover)
