  • Greenpois0n to Serve Up iPad Jailbreak?


    Within the last few hours, the blogosphere has lit up with reports about jailbreak software for the iPad. Since Apple announced the tablet, the jailbreak community has been entertaining the jailbreak potential of the iPad. p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev Team has now presented a Greenpois0n screenshot that purportedly shows the arrival of support for jailbreaking the iPad.

    The Team is poised and ready to jailbreak the tablet as soon as they get their hands on one in a few weeks. p0sixninja has already begun tweeting what amounts to a fundraising campaign in order to obtain an iPad so the experimentation can begin.

    if I had a job I would pay out of my own pocket. but iphone exploit hunting fulltime doesn't exactly pay well (at all)
    While it sounds like a slam dunk jailbreak certainty, if and how the iPad can be hacked still depends on a number of factors, like the yet to be determined exploits. But despite the increasing challenges behind jailbreaking firmware, Apple's iPad will likely be far from impenetrable. And the jailbreak community is naturally stoked about the potential of a jailbroken iPad. We already know Cydia developers are chomping at the bit to dig in on the iPad and their opportunity to do so seems to be closer now than ever.

    For now, all signs point to an Pad jailbreak for OS 3.2 coming very, very soon, and likely with the assistance of GreenPois0n.

      Convincing people happens when people actually release something. Show me any working JB these guys have released. Hell any working anything from them. They took money for IPT and released nothing, same thing will happen here.

      It is ok you don't have to donate. That is why it is called a donation.

      Just because they didn't release their own tool doesn't mean they didn't have a hand in jailbreaking. Since people don't want to research, I will just link:

      I don't care what people say, it's all about what they do. These guys have been stringing people along time and never delivering. There is no reason to think now will be any different. I'll check back with you after 3.2 comes out and the DevTeam release their JB and see if your boys actually deliver this time. For the sake of a lot of iPad owners I hope they prove me wrong.

      have you ever heard of irecovery? or perhaps genpass, or gidecrypt? no? well here's some things to help refresh your memory.

      hey stealth, what's goin on! Thanks for coming to our defense, and when did I get this badass chronic-dev logo under my name? =P

      a few weeks ago. I am trying to make sure every dev has the appropriate title under their name.

      This may just be the HIGH point of my day. And here I thought the idea of a jailbroken iPad was UP IN SMOKE. I gotta let this news BAKE in a little. I hope they WEED out any issues to bypass the need for a tethered jailbreak.

      ^_^

      Happy St. Patrick's Day!

      Choose your poison carefully, not sure about this chronic dev and I did not really care for geohots blackweather too glitchy. The Dev Team has released some reliable and stable jailbreaking tools and I think I will continue to trust them with my iToys.

      my iPhone took a dump on me the other day and I spent 3 days trying to get my JB back... Out of all the devs programs, iRecovery was the only thing that got me back down to 3.1.2 and JB'n again... Thx posixninja now I know who helped. Extremely grateful sir!!!

      You're absolutely right. Not all jailbreaks are designed for everyone. While we do make every effort to keep greenpois0n as easy as possible, it does include many advanced features included mainly for follow hackers and developers. Also since we were delayed, we were not in a rush to release like blackra1n was. We've gone through quite a few revisions and have a very stable base now. And if you're still not satisfied, greenposi0n will be released open sourced and we encourage everyone to get involved to help make it better.

      Why for the sake of iPad owners? The iPad is going to be great regardless of a jailbreak, a JB would just make it that much more awesome. A quote from a great movie, "Seeing isn't believing, believing is seeing." try it sometime, it might just open your eyes. Chronic Dev Team are the REAL rocknrolla's.

      If I'm not mistaken , you can jailbreak the 3.1.3 firmware if you downgrade . I downgraded a ipod touch 3rd gen with 3.1.3 by using a ipod touch 2nd gen 3.1.2 firmware and also using and older version of Itunes (8. something ) Found this on youtube , even gives you the downloads for the files you will need . Hope I helped some people.

      I totally agree, and hope that they hold out till then! I'll only consider getting the iPad when there is a working jailbreak for it...hopefully signed by the DevTeam

      Yeessss... we're not exactly n00bs here!! The 24kpwn vuln we found we already held onto for a few months. We were planning to hold off until the 3gs was released, but we were forced to release early because someone had gotten a hold of it and was selling it online. As for as the latest usb exploit, it's practically the same story. We found the exploit months prior and were waiting for the release of the ipod touch 3g. Sadly progress on that was horribly slow because only one member of the team actually had access to a device, and he was very busy dealing with real world stuff at the time (which, btw, is why I started the first donation fund, I was also the first to dump the keys from the device less then a week later). And now it's the same story again. I will say we do have at least one new exploit that we've been sitting on for the past few months waiting specifically for the ipad, but I can't say anything more then that.
      As far as greenpois0n is concerned, it's been a long grueling 7 months since we started it. Unfortunately, not all of our members at chronic-dev are seasoned developers, and the few that are can only help sporadically in-between school and work. Since I probably had the most programming experience and free time, I took charge of the project and have sunk literally hundred and hundred of hours into development. From the first version written in 100% ARM assembly (the most fun I ever have had while not having any fun at all), down to the latest version, a beautiful iboot hacker toolkit and payload framework, work on greenpois0n has never stopped (although there were many months where I was the only person contributing).
      I guess what I'm trying to say is, with all the time, sweat, blood, and tears (and adderall) i've invested into this product, it really irks me when I see people calling it fake. As far as the donation thing is concerned, that's something I really really hate doing. If I had a job and the money I would of never even consider asking for donations. The only reason I finally decided to post the chipin is because many people (including some of them devs who make all your beloved jailbreak apps) encouraged me to start this fund, and were the first to donate, because they believe in me, and know what I'm capable of. I'm not trying to force anyone to donate, or holding the program/exploit ransom for money, I'm just looking for some help to allow me to continue my idevice research (which ultimately helps all of you in the end), and if not, then that's fine too (I just don't want to hear those people whining about an ipad jailbreak in 2 months =P)

      I'd rather eat my words then throw away my money

      I am a programmer and I have yet to pull a single hair out. Why? Because I know how to program.
