The much awaited SHAtter based GreenPois0n Jailbreaking tool will be released on 10th October. According to this tweet from the Chronic team member – @p0xixninja, GreenPois0n will be released at 10:10:10am of 10th October 2010! Not a bad date/time for the release!
GreenPois0n to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G
GreenPois0n will be based on SHAtter bootrom exploit and will most probably be untethered jailbreak like Spirit and JailbreakMe. Unfortunately, GreenPois0n will only jailbreak the new 4th generation iDevices like iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G, Apple TV and the iPad. It won’t jailbreak iPhone 3GS/3G/2G and iPod Touch 3G/2G. iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G owners can use RedSn0w 0.9.6 for now.
iPhone 3GS & iPod Touch 3G users will be left without a solution for now at-least. This will be a major disappointment for many who were waiting to upgrade to iOS 4.1 & may be even iOS 4.2.
Apple TV 2G might also be supported, but it’s not confirmed yet. iPad though has been confirmed to be supported by GreenPois0n tool. Greenpois0n will hactivate your iPhone 4 but won’t be able to unlock iOS 4.1. In order to unlock iPhone 4 you have to use Pwnagetool for iOS 4.1 & create custom firmware,, pwnagetool release is expected in coming days.
According to MuscleNerd
SHAtter is yet another breed of exploit. Bootrom-based but requires userland “assistance” for untethered boots (@comex did this for 4.1)
