Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Delay: Complex or increasing advertising revenue?

By Updated on

Those of you currently waiting for the release of Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak for the iPhone 4 will not be happy with the delay, but most of you can forgive the Chronic Dev Team for the long wait, as it is very complex to complete.

However, there has been some feedback to a recent article on Only Kent, saying that the delay is deliberate, as it is a way for the developer to increase advertising revenue – not certain how many of you would agree with that one?

It does seem that this was an isolated comment, most agreeing that those who think that they can do better are welcome to try – I bet that there will be no takers to that challenge?

One comment certainly stuck out for me, saying that those working on the Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak have a life around their 9-to-5 jobs, so we should give them a break. How would you like it if you were hounded by thousands of people after you had finished work for the day? Alan Ng recenlty reported that the release is imminent.

How long will you wait for the jailbreak?

    at the end of the day the Dev Team are doin every iPhone 4 user a favour by creating the jailbreak, so a little longer is fine, I mean we don't want a rushed jailbreak that wont work, so a big thanks to the Dev Team behind greenpois0n, i for one am thankful for what u guys are doin.

      Im on an iPhone 4 and im JB’d. But it would be great to have 4.1 over 4.0.1

    You are an idiot.

    I'm beginning to think this whole jailbreak is a hoax.

    Man I can’t wait for this jailbreak! Last time i jailbroke my phone it kept crashing so I left it in prison since then. However now I need the internet tethering & refuse to pay double. I do have to say that the Chronic Dev. Team does not get the credit they deserve. These guys work their asses off! Give them a break. Last I heard they were doing this for free, so it will be ready when it’s ready. Thanks for all you do.

    Wow. What ad revenue? I have yet to see an ad for greenpois0n or the dev-team….. Ever. And what are they advertising? They don’t sell anything. Oh, wait, I get it. You mean on the other side. Ads on their sites. Well, greenpois0n.com is just FULL of those. The only ads I’m seeing are in stories like this. So who is really cashing in on the release?

    I am an IT Manager. I make computers do some awesome ••••. I started as a true hacker. There is no profit in hacking. It’s a risky endeavor, takes a very long time, and is entirely thankless.

    I think the dev-team should charge for their services. I know that I would pay $100.00 for greenpois0n.

    I think Greenpois0n is an urban legend at this point…

  • anna

    i will wait… i suppose it will be worth it in the end i hope! My iphone 4 ( OS 4.2.2) needs the free apps and cool features soon!!

    I agree with you peter..anyways just work hard Chronic Dev Team, and make sure you take a break. WE don't want you guys sick.

    Well, I wonder if they make money out of Cydia's store, because if they do, this is their job/business and delaying the release is a genius marketing strategy, although things in technology get old fast.

    I mean someone makes money out of Cydia's (saurik maybe?) store, not only developers, I wonder who it is, if it's not the developer team behind the jailbreaks then this is one more proof that we live in an unfair world

      hey a-hole, you are a L-O-S-E-R

  • Mac

    Lets see how many people would complain if the Dev Team(GreenpoisOn) SHAtter or whoever decided to charge us for the privaledge of having our iphones jailbroken. I for one have used a jailbroken iphone since they were first jailbroken.
    No way on this earth am I gonna start paying for apps or movies of the app store, so I know I would pay anything.
    Thanks Dev team for all your previous jailbreaks. I know the 4.1 won't be far away

  • Guest

  • Guest
