  • 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.

      What I think is a truly epic fail is a tweet by Geo:

      "_Geohot

      #GreenPois0n DOWNLOAD #JAILBREAK 4.1 NOW Miss Tennessee Rachel Smith Crowned New Miss USA | Bumpshack.com Postcards or emailed postcards are best reward "

      The link is not to the GP site, but to a site that talks about Miss Tennessee winning Miss USA in 2007.

      Geohot is no longer on Twitter. That is a fake account as already mentioned.

      Tweeted by @MuscleNerd

      "geohot is not on twitter in any form...don't be duped!"

      It only works on the iPhone 4 because the iPhone 4 uses a SHSH system similar to that of the normal SHSH for the baseband as well. So all tiny umbrella is doing is supplying the firmware SHSH and not the baseband SHSH. So when it comes time in the itunes restore to update the baseband it fails. This is not possible on a 3GS because a 3GS does not use SHSH for the baseband.

      Damn! I think i messed up! on an iPhone 4, I used Limera1n to jailbreak after restoring to 4.1 via iTunes bypassing the tiny umbrella step So my BB is 2.10.04 now. Am I out of luck with an unlock forever?

      Also, Why does it say "what's jailbreak" below my forum screen name lol? Is that by count of posts or something? I'm not an expert but i'm not THAT green either lol

      Why bother to release when all it is is GeoHot's JB?

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)
      While I am not certain about this, I have a feeling that one/some of the packages you reinstalled using apt/pkg backup is causing this because it/they are not yet coded to support iOS 4.1. On new versions of iOS, certain paths may be changed or files renamed, both of which could cause quite annoying errors when mixed with incompatible Cydia packages. My advice to you would be to do a complete restore and jailbreak again, but this time just install the cydia packages one or two at a time so that you can notice which, if any, packages are causing this to happen.

      Apt/Pkg backup is a very helpful feature; I have pkgbackup myself. However, when relatively significant updates are released (3.1, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, etc.) it is always best to install the packages manually until you are certain everything has been updated to support the current iOS.
