Here’s an update on the workaround of the GreenPois0n Jailbreak for iOS 4.1. Five days ago, it was announced that GreenPoison was supposedly released on October 10th; however Geohot came back to the scene with his Limera1n jailbreak.
It eventually surprised the Dev Team and let them break the scheduled release of GreenPois0n.
Earlier today, the Chronic Dev Team has an initial release of their jailbreaking tool. GreenPois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.1 is already out which can jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, and iPad. Chronic Dev Team will have another release of GreenPois0n adding support for Apple TV 2G as well as iPod Touch 2G.
Everyone should note that this release of GreenPois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.1 don’t use the SHAtter exploit discovered by @pod2g. It uses the Limera1n exploit by Geohot for the sake of preserving the SHAtter exploit. It makes sense, though.
Unfortunately, as of this writing – only GreenPoison for Windows is available so far. Version for Mac will surely follow, so just stay tuned for future updates. [via Chronic Dev]
