Chronic Dev team had to delay the release of greenpois0n after Geohot released limera1n as they decided to incorporate the same USB bootrom exploit used in limera1n instead of using the SHAtter exploit so that it can be used sometime in the future.
greenpois0n works only on iOS 4.1 and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad. iPhone 4 users can use Tiny Umbrella if they want to upgrade to iOS 4.1 to preserve the baseband so that they can unlock it using Ultrasn0w after jailbreaking their iPhone.
If you’re an iPhone 3GS users and want to unlock your iPhone then do NOT upgrade to iOS 4.1. Dev Team will be releasing PwnageTool that will preserve the baseband while updating the iPhone to iOS 4.1.
greenpois0n supports the following iDevices:
iPod Touch 4G
- iPod Touch 3G
Chronic Dev plan to add support for the following iDevices in the future:
New Apple TV (2nd Generation)
iPod Touch 2G
greenpois0n is currently available only for Windows users. Chronic Dev Team has mentioned that they are working on the Mac version.
Please note that jailbreaking your iDevice may void its warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk. Please don’t forget to backup your iPhone before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iPhone.
