  • 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!

      Do not list your sources/repos on ModMyI. It is against the rules and u can be kicked out. It promotes piracy which is not allowed. Just wanted to give u a heads up since I made the same mistake!

      Ok, so I've read this entire thread and for some reason now I still get a Failed Jailbreak when I use greenpois0n RC6 for MAC. My iPhone is with Verizon running 4.2.6 and 1.0.05. Ive watched numerous youtube videos and it looks so easy. just hold buttons down and follow what the program tells you. But I still get a Failed in greeepois0n.

      Have you tried to keep holding the home button until you see the scrolling text?

      Just try it and see what happens. It can't hurt the whole process. In fact, it can only help you to get the jailbreak completed. U might have to hold it till you see A LOT of text scrolling....not just the beginning text that shows up.

      you need to upgrade to 4.2.6. I don't 'think' greenpois0n works correctly on 4.2.5. Try rerunning GP just in case. The last resort is manually installing Cydia but I dont even know if that'll work on 4.2.5.

      Yes but the newer version of Cydia is tricky. I had to do it a few days ago

      Sorry for the delay in responding...

      Tools needed:
      Safari Download Manager
      iFile

      1. Get the cydia 1.1.1 deb file via Safari Download Manager: http://www11.multiupload.com:81/file...ia%201.1.1.zip

      2. Use iFile and UNARCHIVE the folder

      3. Open the Cydia 1.1.1 Folder and COPY the 'cydia_1.1.1_iphoneos-arm.deb' file

      4. Go to: /var/root/Media and PASTE the cydia deb file here

      5. Now go to: /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall and PASTE the Cydia deb file here, too.

      ***you might have to create the Cydia and AutoInstall folders. If so, pay attention to the capitalization! You might even need to create the Media folder if it isn't inside the /var/root/ folder***

      6. Go back to the /var/root/Media folder and TAP on the Cydia deb file

      7. INSTALL the Cydia deb file

      8. Now REBOOT your phone.

      9. You should now have Cydia!
