  • How To: Jailbreak the Verizon iPhone 4 with greenpois0n RC5 beta 4


    I posted earlier today about how I was able to jailbreak the Verizon iPhone 4 with an updated greenpois0n. Well, in no time at all, the update is now live and will jailbreak your brand new Verizon iPhone, and any other iDevice on firmware 4.2.1.

    NOTE: The new version (RC5 Beta 4) is currently only available for Mac OS X available for both Windows and Mac OS X now!
    • Step One: Head to greenpois0n.com and download the newest version
    • Step Two: Attach your iPhone to your computer, close iTunes if it opens.
    • Step Three: Open the greenpois0n app and follow the instructions for putting your device in DFU mode
    • Step Four: greenpois0n will recognize the device in DFU, and run its code, allowing for an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone. The phone will reboot after finishing, however, it will now have an animated boot logo that starts with the apple logo and morphs into the greenpois0n logo.
    • Step Five: On your springboard, you should find an app called 'Loader' which will download and install Cydia. Cydia might not appear directly after Loader finishes. A reboot worked for me.
    • Step Six: Open Cydia, and install updates as needed! Enjoy your jailbroken Verizon iPhone 4!!

    Let us know, if you have any problems, or if something doesn't work as indicated.

    You may find that some Cydia apps may not run perfectly yet, since the Verizon iPhone uses a modified firmware compared to the GSM version. It is expected that the two versions will sync up when iOS 4.3 is released. But for now, enjoy the jailbreak!

      When I attempt to download the file, an error pops up and says unable to open this is a file that Quicktime does not recognize... wont even keep the file on my desktop.

      Error 2048- unable to open file, it is a file that quicktime does not recognize. Won't even show the file on my desktop...

      Hey guys, I am new here. I just got my Iphone4 from vzw and I followed the steps posted here and it worked like a charm. The only thing is that I noticed that the phone crashes every now and then. Is this common? If not, can you give me some advice?

      My phone lags. There is sometime a 2-3 second delay after i hit any buttons or icons. Also, when i try to update apps in the app store, the phone crashes to safe mode. i can only update apps in safemode

      hi all,

      dumb question but will this be ok for my uk version 4.2.1 (8c148)?
      im on 3g network,
      got phone in december but havent done anything to it as of yet.
      i havent unlocked phone yet as cant find anyone who has so far,
      dont want to screwup a great phone.
      my baseband is 03.10.01
      will this effect my battery power at all ?
      ive read that sometimes jailbreaking iphone will effect power useage.
      also will i need to backup or save anything when i jailbreak phone?
      let me know asap
      many thanks to a very informative forum.

      You should be fine to jailbreak. It sounds like you are on official carrier so shouldn't really see any excess battery drain.

      Is the CDMA version of the jailbreak not as reliable?

      Shouldn't make a difference whether it is gsm or CDMA

      Sbsettings is a must have

      I also like:
      Barrel
      Multifl0w
      Backgrounder
      CleanStatus
      Gridlock
      MyWi
      Parallax
      DeepEnd
      Pkgbackup

      All of these are paid apps. Google these to find out how to get them. I do not condone piracy but think trialing an app is legitimate. If you like it you need to buy it to support the developer.
