  • 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.

      It's best to install everything manually when moving to a new version of iOS. Many apps and packages are not yet updated to 4.1 and will cause a lot of errors and frustration.

      try maybe making sure your browser doesnt block pop ups or downloading files

      so if this uses the same exploit as limera1n, whats the point in using this over limera1n?

      there's not really one, since it's the same exploit. but the chronic dev team has a history of much more thorough testing and therefore stability.

      What is this history that you speak of? I believe you are confusing them with the iPhone_dev team. ChronicDev has never released a jailbreak program until this week.

      MOD NOTE: 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!
      Where can i get the link to download tinyumbrella. I've tried a link but no luck loading the page.

      Seriously? What is going on with this "no mac support" b.s?

      They are having trouble getting it to work properly on a mac. Patience they will get it working soon. Remember they did have to switch exploits at the last minute.

      NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...


      This sucks though. I've been waiting to jailbreak this bastard for a long time. Maybe I should take over the duties.

      Okay you don't need your iPhone synced with the PC your jailbreaking from, all it needs is iTunes on it, that's what I did and I'm running smooth on limera1n

      Simply download limera1n or greenPoisi0n to the Win7 PC(it didn't work for me running parallels on my Mac with XP)

      Open iTunes so the sync exe file is running
      Now plug it in and jailbreak it then your done, takes less then 3 min, I'm sure a neighbor has a Win7 comp

      Actually, I'd have no idea what the hell I was doing...

      WAIT!!! What the hell am I thinking? I have Parallels on this computer... Unless it doesn't work for me. I think there is a PC here with windows on it...

      I did. Let ur phone die cometely till it turns off then charge it back to 100% once its fully charged leave it connected for an extra 30 mins.

      See how u go with that
