  • 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.

      Ja ja. Not all programming is hair intensive heh. Take a dive into iboot sometime. Although I have absolutely no interest in the iPad, future jailbreaks are apparently on hold for it which I think is crap. The hold up should be for the next gen iPhone. Time will tell.

Please sir, if you can make a jailbreak tool without pulling your hair out, do it. Only part of this thread that is fail is the part where ungrateful children refuse to acknowledge the work of others.

      Also reverse psychology of calling the devs names and calling geohot lazy is not going to make them want to prove you wrong. It will just make them want to say forget it. They will sit back and keep their fine work to themselves.

      LOL, Ok, Chronic Dev Team says hey, donate and we will get a device so we can jailbreak/unlock it. They failed to deliver, here we are again in the same situation, this time we have a photoshopped image to get us all drooling and throwing money at nothing.

      I NEVER said I was a reverse engineer or knew arm assembly. I do however know people that do, have gone to school and have great jobs doing such. Among other things.

      Coming on a forum and saying hey, I am jobless, I spend all day looking for exploits and get paid nothing, takes donations, and shows nothing for it.

      WAKE UP
      That is fraud in its most basic form, take someones money and don't deliver anything in return.

      THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED BEFORE. History repeating itself. Happens all the time.

      Chronic Dev Team are Chronic Liars. Simple as that.

      I do however encourage you to prove me wrong. Not to challenge you, or reverse psychology, of whatever is being claimed, but to simply clear your name, because as of right now you, your team, and your software are vaporware. NOTHING.

      I could careless about a jailbreak, I pay for my software.

      GeoHot is not lazy, he has the biggest ego on earth. He also has more talent in one pinky finger then Chronic Dev Team will ever have.

      If you refuse to look at the facts, or if you have and still want to throw money at this "Team", by all means, go for it.

      One last thing, lets not start trying to define what a donation is. We all know what it is. The problem is Chronic Dev Team promised a jailbreak in return for those donations and did not hold up their end. If they did in fact have a program like blackra1n and gave up because they have competition, they should have sold the device and refunded everyone's money. Imagine if Ford made a sedan, and then decided at the last minute to scrap it because Toyota released a problematic competing sedan, and Ford kept all of the money the dealers paid them to get the cars on their lots and delivered no cars.

      k. You don't want to debate the meaning of donation? RAWL

      Just because you don't see a t00l on your end to jailbreak your idevice doesn't mean their work was not utilized to brink a jailbreak to the market. You don't get it and that's fine.

      Anyway I will gladly donate $5 here and there to help other people in this community develop tools that we all enjoy. Even if that person doesn't ever release anything, I will take the gamble if it might help. However its not a gamble when they have released so many tools:

      irecovery, genpass, gidecrypt, and other contributions:

      posixninja's Profile - GitHub
      Search results - The iPhone Wiki

      irecovery alone is worth $25. I have and will continue donating.

      haha, no joke.

      Off topic, but seriously, what is up with geohot putting his pic on releases. I thought it was a joke the 1st time I saw it. Is there a reason beyond vanity? He may be a hacking genius, but it's still just plain ***. <<<< is "g-a-y" a "bad" word? is this kindergarten? can i say "lesbian", instead?

      I think it was to help fight against people selling the software as their own. But lets be honest, you don't see the software before you buy it from those places, so it doesn't matter.

      Pure LESBIAN Ego

      fund for ipt3 when that time comes around, so we can do some tests and get out a jailbreak asap.
      /me waits for the word twisting to start.

      Seriously? Do you think anyone would have donated to just run some tests? It is worded in a way that implies donations = ipt3 for test and jailbreak.

      Maybe they should choose their words more wisely next time.
      -----
      Since people didn’t read what I said in the comments, yes greenpois0n is still being developed and yes it will be released by the end of the year.
      more broken promises...

      ----
      “wouldn’t it be fun to delay untethered jb 2 months past when it’s ready just to teach these people a lesson?”
      Jobless and childish.

      Done with this, I will just be laughing when they still have nothing to show after GeoHot jailbreaks the iPad.

      Haha, it's almost to the point where I hope they don't release a new jailbreak, ever. Just to spite all the tards who keep saying it's easy( so do it yourself) and the wanna be's who try using 1st grade reverse phsychology( na na, you can't do it) bunch of jackasses.
      I'll just keep using my 3g until it's no longer supported and then get a razr. FU

      I haven't said it was easy, GeoHot has...

      I am just pointing out that all of these people are blindly throwing money at another scam by a jobless con artist while defending him.

      I agree, no more jailbreaks, people just use it to pirate software.

      For the rest of you defending these cons, just do them a favor, drop your pants and bend over.

      Fail

      so he said it's easy, whatever, maybe to him it is. But if he doesn't want to do it, or he wants to wait till the time is right, that's obviousley his decision. Do you really think you're going to taunt him into doing it?

      You are entitled to your opinion of the dev team, I just hope you aren't using anything that is the fruits
      of their labors

      Fail- I use my jailbreak to take advantage of all the incredible jailbreak apps and mods and tweaks, just like many other people. I've never used anything pirated. Pirates will be pirates regardless of jailbreaking

      ^you can always tell when someone realizes they are on the losing end of an argument by the way they revert to childish or lewd comments. Gotta love it, you fail

      WTF!? Are you going to tell me they will break this and NOT the 3gs?

      I would imagine this has the same or similar security with memory etc that has kept 3gs and ipt3g users from proper jailbreaks

      Go back and read... you missed the entire point... gosh.

      I mean hell, we aren't even talking about THE DEV TEAM. We are talking about CHRONIC DEV TEAM.

      I am not taunting them, I am pointing out the FRAUD taking place here.

      "childish or lewd comments" - that was a figure of speech... I didn't mean to literally left them f*ck you up the a**. <- now that was lewd

      -----------

      @StealthBravo - No offense to anyone, just my opinion on the matter, I provided what proof I had as requested by you.

      I am curious, have you actually used greenp0ison? From reading some of your other posts it sounds like you have a bit more connection with the chronic dev team, beta test connections.

      Why won't they release it? The fact that GeoHot released something doesn't seem like a good reason to just say the hell with it.

      I realize now would be horrible timing for a release seeing as the iPad and next gen iPhone are on the horizon. They said before the end of the year, that has come and gone and nothing from them. Blog posts end in Nov.

      This is what I see, they got money for and ipt3, showed off some stuff that looked like a jailbreak and when the sh*t hit the fan they stopped posting. Is this going to happen again? Are we going to see donations for them to get an iPad only to have them not release anything because they want to wait for the 4.0? Then take more donations when that rolls around and vanish until another devices comes out they want?

      Don't get me wrong I understand your frustration. I know that blackra1n and greenpois0n were going to utilize the same exploit. I believe that geohot and chronic dev were both close to releasing when they met and realized they were going to be releasing the same tool with different names. geohot beat chronic dev to release and I guess they felt like what was the point. Then they decided to change the whole idea of greenpois0n and add cool features that were not in any other tool at the time. posixninja has been working hard on making that happen and when the iPad was announced they saw it as an opportunity to finally release a complete tool. But during this time, they have been actively searching for vulnerabilities so that a tool could be released that would jailbreak the iPad, and all other idevices untethered. I can't speak for them but that is how I saw everything go down. And I wasn't just watching from twitter
