The Chronic Dev Team just announced the release of their iOS 4.1 jailbreak labeled ‘greenpois0n’. The jailbreak uses the same exploit which was exposed by iPhone Hacker Geohot a few days ago but promises greater stability.
‘Greenpois0n’ works on firmware 4.1 only, so if you care about preserving your iPhone 4 baseband (to unlock) it is strongly recommended that you use TinyUmbrella to upgrade your firmware in order to preserve the original iPhone 4 baseband.
Currently ‘greenpois0n’ is only available for windows but @p0sixninja promises that a mac version will follow as soon as some technical issues have been overcome.
According to the release notes, the initial release will support the following devices:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3G S
- iPod touch (4th Generation)
- iPod touch (3rd Generation)
The team promises that another release will follow soon, adding the 2nd generation Apple TV as well as the 2nd Generation iPod Touch to the list of jailbreakable devices. You can download the jailbreak at http://www.greenpois0n.com/.
We will update this story as it develops.
