What a big day! The wait is over now. The Chronic Dev Team has finally provided us all the information about GreenpoisOn i.e., its release date, it will be tethered or untethered, and what devices will be supported. GreenpoisOn is a SHAtter Exploit based jailbreak that is tethered but Comex (iPhone Dev Team Member) made it untethered on iOS 4.1 and iPad 3.2.2. Read the full details after this break.
After JailbreakMe, Greenpoison will be another revolutionary jailbreak tool which will bring many features in single tool like baseband protection and hacktivation.
If you are an iPhone user and using an unofficial carrier, you will be well aware of what is Baseband Preservation and what we can get if it is done. The working of Ultrasnow, a popular unlocking tool which frees your iPhone, iPod from any carrier, depends on baseband. If the baseband is changed after updating the idevice to latest iOS, your phone will be no more unlocked until or unless new (version) of Ultrasnow is used to re-unlock it.
SHAtter exploit is rocking. iPhone Dev Team has confirmed that SHAtter exploit can be used to cook a custom firmware for new Apple TVs. SHAtter is the same exploit which is being used to develop the new jailbreak tool (the name might be GreenPoison) for iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and other idevices.
iH8sn0w, the developer of Snowbreeze has just released a new version of Snowbreeze 2.0.2 after fixing some bugs found in the previous version. Snowbreeze 2.0.2 update fixes the errors like 17, 40 and it also resolves the problem of hacktivation faced by some users.
Snowbreeze 2.0 will be released on Wednesday to jailbreak iOS 4.1 for certain idevices including iPhone 3GS (New Bootrom), the sources said. If you remember, in July we shared two tweets of iH8sn0w, the developer of Sn0wbreeze, about Snowbreeze 2.0 which was never released, but now the same version will be released with iOS 4.1 support.
If you are not following the updates about iOS 4.1 jailbreak from last few days, read our first post about Greenpoison here and head over to this post for latest update on Greenpoison. As we told you in previous post, greenpoison is only a name like Redsnow, snowbreeze etc given to a jailbreak software/tool/program. The exploit that will be used, most probably, to develop Greepoison for iOS 4.1 is SHAtter made by pod2g.
P0sixninja, an iOS hacker from Chronic-Dev.Org, who developed a jailbreak tool “GreenpoisOn” for iPad which was never released, just updated its blog about the upcoming jailbreak for iOS 4.1 to keep the users calm down.
A new jailbreak for iOS 4.1 and hopefully for iOS 4.2 too is coming soon, but if you have updated your iPhone/iPod/iPad to iOS 4.2 which is not jailbreakable yet, here is simple guide to downgrade iOS 4.2 to previous version. Moreover, iOS 4.2 also contains new baseband which makes it impossible to unlock using existing UltraSnow version.
This news is really interesting and exciting for all iPhone, iPod and iPad lovers. pod2g has finally confirmed that new jailbreak for iOS 4.1 is coming soon. In his tweet published few hours ago he confirmed that GreenPoisOn jailbreak worked well on iPhone 4.
It is being expected that tomorrow Apple will reveal the details, release date and shipment date of new iPod Touch 4/4G . But interestingly a jailbroken iPod Touch 4 is already available on eBay. This also indicates that the new version of iPod will be running on iOS 4.0.1, which is jailbreakable version, instead of iOS 4.0.2.
