  • 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 must vent by saying what a F****ing joke that the Linux version was released before the Mac version. It's enough of a smack in the face that an Apple product sees a Windows based tool released before a Mac one, but Linux too?

      Is there any advantage I will see using poison over rain? I am using rain with no problems at all.

      When I saw the headline I thought they might have used shatter as the exploit in greenpoison's release and was in shock that they'd do something that stupid... Luckily they worked together so we more than likely have an instant new jailbreak when this one gets patched.

      Sorry but no offense, real hackers do not use macs because they suck. That is why the jailbreaks and other hacks come out for windows first. It is just a hackers choice of the trade.

      Macs suck because? Or are you too poor to actually own one... You are on a forum for apple products, you do realize that, right?

      Windows fanboy talk. Mac OS came out before Windows.

      Cheers to the Chronic Dev Team.

      Harsh? Depends. However, you are in an Apple forums which also includes Mac. And oh, don't forget, you need a life, too. Criticizing Macs isn't gonna help and very poinless unless it is constructive.

      Actually, I started with Windows first. But, I now both PC and Mac. I just use my Mac more due to better tech specs than my PC.

      Hit a nerve didn't I? Go save your money little boy, and buy a mac. You'll forever enjoy it and it's stability.

      What are you doing on this site? Modding a windows phone? What are you modding?

      Man, I thought you guys are savvy and experienced enough not to feed the troll.

      Anyways, thanks to the Dev Team for greenpois0n, though I used limera1n and I don't know what version has lesser bugs.
