  • 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.

      So, only difference is what between this and limera1n. Finally jb with the limera1n rc so I'm eager to see if there is a reason to change.

      Awesome, perhaps I'll jailbreak now. I was not going to use Geohot's jailbreak... My trust is with the Dev Team.

      I have to admit I finally broke down and tried limera1n on my ip4.. I had a glitch or two in the process but nothing major.. Cydia didn't come up on the first try but did on the second and installing my apps from there was a bit of a pain and now my wifi finder util doesn't work but I'll live. Not doing any war driving in the near future anyway.

      I'll be glad to see when all the glitches are worked out so I can move to the SHAtter exploit but till then this will do.

      Very good news, I'm looking forward to upgrading to 4.1!

      Question:

      I'm currently jailbroken on 4.0.1 (iPhone 4). If I do a backup, and then restore to 4.1, jailbreak, and then restore my backup, will it retain all my saved games / SMS / Etc? and still be jailbroken? I'm used to always restoring and then jailbreaking and not restore anything from backup, but I always lose my saved games...

      I don't want to lose all my progress in games again... any advice would be much appreciated

      You won't be moving to the SHAtter exploit until next gen iDevices :P Greenpois0n uses GeoHotz' exploit that he used in limera1n. Basically both jailbreak tools are the same, maybe one might have a few bugs, but there is no real difference. I made it ra1n, 4th BETA, and haven't had a single problem yet. I was going to use Greenpois0n, but I'm staying with limera1n for now.

      1. Download tiny umbrella
      2. Click save SHSH files and confirm there are no errors.
      3. Run TSS server.
      4. Open iTunes and click RESTORE.

      This only works on iPhone 4.

      What are you talking about? It IS Limera1n in a different GUI package. Same bootrom exploit... same iBoot exploit. Geohot had 4 releases in 24 hours. CDT had 3 releases in 5 hours to iron out tiny bugs. It all works now.

      If I don't need a unlock is it ok to do the normal update and then jailbreak or do I need to use TinyUmbrella to save my Base Band and then update/jailbreak??

      JB with greenpoison this morning. everything went fine. Reinstalled all my cydia apps and stuff but i have found that the sbsettings, remove all backround apps, everytime i try to use that phone crashes and restarts. I have tried reinstalling sbsettings. All of then other things work fine. Anyone else having this issue?

      Thanks for the guide, iphone 4 on 4.1. Backed up my shsh via TU but was unsure of how to backup my BB. In point 4 u say click Restore. This will just backup the BB....it won't restore the device back to factory defaults and wipe all my stuff off?

      still learning....

      What's that? The dev team released buggy software? Oh no. All of you that are *** for the dev team; are you going to cheat on them with geohot? What a fantastic soap opera !!!
