The potential new name of the new iOS jailbreak solution is GreenPois0n, and this Chronic Dev Team hacking tool seems to be underway as we speak. Chronic Dev Team has posted an update on their official blog that the work on jailbreak is on track and progress is quite smooth.
They have updated to make their fans calm and be patient, as they will release the jailbreak as and when the work will be complete. However, they have not given any ETA for the release of jailbreak of iOS 4.1. Here is exactly what the hackers from the Chronic Dev Team have updated.
But more and more people are complaining about not needing a jailbreak and unlock solution for the new iPhone 4 units that come with iOS 4.1 out of the box or a jailbreak solution for iPod touches or iPads that also run iOS 4.1 and iOS 3.2.2, respectively. And it seems that GreenPois0n will be able to deliver the jailbreak at some point in the near future.
Those who don’t know, Greenpois0n is based on SHAtter, which is a low level bootrom exploit unlike userland exploit JailbreakMe, that can’t be fixed by Apple without a new hardware release of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad and the iPod touches. Just firmware update will not going to patch the bootrom exploit. The complete makeover of the Greenpois0n portal also hints towards the possible jailbreak release in few days. But, no ETA has been cited by hackers apart from confirming that all jailbreaks on iOS 4.1 need 2 exploits, a tethered exploit and an untethered exploit.
There are hundreds of reasons for why people jailbreak their prized and very costly iPhone jailbreak, but the main reason is that they want to be sure what to upload on their iPhones and the wider choices that it offers. But another major issue is that they want to be able to chose the network they want to use on their iphones. This is the reason that ever increasing number of iPhone users are going for jailbreak and forfeiting their warranties. Apple has said that a person who jailbreaks, the warranty of his iPhone becomes void.
SHAtter jailbreak is anticipated to be tethered jailbreak which will jailbreak all iDevices including iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad forever. Choric Dev Team is really working hard, so please have patience as work is in progress and release is coming soon.
