  • 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 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!
      You're out of your shell dude! Why do you want to re-jailbreak when Limera1n already work on your iPhone. It's the same exploit. Are you re-inventing the wheel?

      Don't even know what that is... What I do know is that I use a mac, after using windows when I was a kid. I've used my uncles PC back in Ohio and he's constantly adding newer ****. I also know that he saw my macbook pro and wanted it.

      Once you go mac... Enjoy the pos computer that you have.

      lol ive been sitting here wondering y cydias not appearing, it seems that the ramdisk doesnt run on some systems...
      I used greenpoisOn to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS from 3.12 to 4.1 and the only issue I have so far is that the Cydia icon is white; no Cydia logo and it won't launch. Does anyone know if there is a possible fix for this. Wish I could load WinterBoard, SSH and other apps I had before. Appreciate any help.

      Thanks to those involved in getting GP up and running.

      I used limera1n on my iPhone 4 and the Cydia icon initially was white but it worked and the icon returned to normal after a reboot.

      @electricmage - he's a troll, but you're not far behind him for using such a wide paintbrush about people who don't use macs. I don't use them because ive had 2 very sexy, very expensive MacBook pros crap out on me. Apple's response is to spend another 2 grand. My response to them was a middle finger, promptly followed by a trip to best buy for a better spec'ed vaio that was 900 dollars cheaper, and spent the rest of the money on a 46 inch television. And for the record, Macs lost their biggest edge when they caved and switched to intel PC based architecture. Now that they use the same hardware, there is no quantifiable reason to charge so much more, other than just because they can.

      Gosh i still remember the days where i have to make sure the firewall and antivirus are running all the time and trying to find the 'lightest' antivirus as well because some of it are such a pain in the ***. Not to mention the part where you had to format the disk when you can't get rid of some virus/worms after surfing onto some reallllly interesting website.

      I re-jailbroke twice with GP and re-booted 5 times with no luck with the Cydia icon. I am going to re-jailbreak and try limera1n this time.

      Well thanks to the help of the members here are having a little patience, I was succesful in upgrading to 4.1 on my iPhone 4 and jailbreaking it with no issues whatsoever. Greenpois0n worked perfect, and I was able to take 4 of my most important saved games, extract the saved game with iPhone Explorer, and then put them back in after jailbreaking and everything works perfect

      OK, so I'm getting ready to upgrade. I have a 3gs on 3.1.3. I updated to 4.1 via iTunes, when I did, I had 5 icon dock with my calendar app as the 5th, and after upgrade, my calendar icon is GONE. I can search for calendar and pull it up and see appt.'s and all that, but the icon is no longer on my phone.

      PS i never "hid" the icon previously via poof or anything like that. Any suggestions?

      Limera1n worked and the Cydia icon is installed and working. Is there a quick way to reinstall all my cydia apps especially the purchased apps?

      Thanks again for any assistance.

      You are right, and that sucks you've had such a ****** experience with Macs. I had an iMac that only after three years, did it get bogged down. A quick reformat and reinstall and she was good as new. My Macbook Pro is amazing. You'd be hard pressed to find a windows based laptop with a unibody build and made out of durable metal. Plus tack on another 100-250 and you should be covered for 3 years. Can't say that about any other computers.
