iPhone iOS 4.1 Jailbreak: Greenpois0n Release Date Update

By Alan Ng - Sep 19, 2010

We understand that most of you are dying to know when iPhone iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool Greenpois0n will be available to download. It isn’t out yet, but fortunately we have an update from the creators of Greenpois0n.

As reported from RedmondPie, Chronic Dev-Team are the guys responsible for the release of Greenpois0n and they have posted an update regarding the release over on their official website.

Here is the statement in full for you: ”Many people in the comments are asking for a progress update. Any kind of update that we could actually give would be too technical for anyone to understand anyway, not to mention potentially reveal the exploit. Just know that things are going swimmingly and we are working as hard as we can.”

The key word is ‘swimmingly’ there. While this doesn’t actually give an update on when Greenpois0n will be available on iOS 4.1 devices, as least it reassures everyone that the team are working on it constantly to get it out as soon as possible – you can’t really argue with that.

As soon as Greenpois0n ‘does’ go live, rest assured that we’ll be the first ones to let you know at the time. Let us know your thoughts on their update.

Dont forget that you can still jailbreak iOS 4.1 using PwnageTool on the iPhone 3G, while there is an iOS 4.1 jailbreak guide for 3GS owners here.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus.

    RELEASE DATE FOR GREENPOIS0N 10.10.10 at 10:10 am,

    • M4TD4DDY

      and where exactly did u hear this from………… How come everyone online thinks they are part of this jailbreak team? There is a reason Geohotz got out of the jb game. Its bc beggers are never satisfied. I am almost willing to bet, the ones complaning about waiting are the ones who take jb's for granted, and have never donated a dime to any of the developers. i have had a jb iphone since the 2g, ive had 3g, 3gs, and now a 4. i have donated several times, and always saved SHSH's to protect that ability. I like others would love to have my 4 jb on 4.1 but for now I'll just hang tight, and when it comes out I'll drop a $10 or $20 to the person thats earned it………….. comment if you agree. Thanks.

    when i can jailbreak iphone4 4.1

  • George

    You guys are so stupid.

    Just wait for the iOS 4.2 update which comes out in a month and then release the jailbreak.
    If they release it now then Apple is just gonna fix it and then GreenPoison is gonna have to figure it out again.

    You can live a month without a jailbreak.


    • Barrieau

      You are so stupid.

      Greenpois0n is a bootrom (hardware) exploit, so iOS 4.2 wouldn't be able to prevent jailbreaking unless it could magically change the hardware too.
      If they release it now, then Apple WON'T just fix it, and the Greenpois0n, WON'T have to figure it out again.

      We can live a month without a jailbreak but not because of your bullshit.


  • Raju

    man….just get that greenpoison out asap.

  • Bob3342

    Confused, why does it matter if the "exploit" is revealed when they keep saying that Apple cannot fix it.

  • Aundre

    Right, Bryon. And if this was 2008, I'd be elated that there is a jailbreak for the IPHONE 3G & IPOD TOUCH 2G.
    But, unfortunately, it's 2009 and most of us have iPhone 4's.

    • Blipper

      you mean… 2010?

  • Sam

    Why cant they just hurry it up, i need the jailbreak so bad for 1 app that is only avaliable on Cydia!

    • Shawn

      God why do people say stupid stuff like this? “why can’t they just hurry up?”! 4.1 came out only a few weeks ago. Why did you update if you need this program so bad?

  • Brandon

    sn0wbreeze for windows can jailbreak your phone they updated it to 2.0.2 due to hactivation issues and will this be a pwnage tool?

  • George

  • ibanez

  • Bryon Brock

    A jailbreak has been released: http://www.iphone-hacks.com/2010/09/21/redsn0w-0-

  • Steve

    Greenpois0n is still waiting for Apple’s approval before it can release the JB tool.

    • Nettles

      Idiot, your a dumbass!! ITS A JAIL BREAK THEY DO NOT GO THROUGH APPLE

      • B Jobs

        Nettles your more a dumbass!! Everyone knows Steve was joking…LOL

  • j_Mikel

    eh w ba3den??? chou l 7alle??? khalsouna min rabkoun w machou la hal akho l charmouta…. we have to use it before we die!!! right guys??

  • GreenpoisOnSux

    Everyone should take any info about greenpoisOn with a grain of salt remember there last release that never came out they were full of hype back then as well but never delivered I’ll believe this when I see it for my own eyes.

  • SD5150

    There will never be a release date! When its done it will be released. There is no benefit to have a release date for the Dev Teams. A) If they guess and run into problems then everyone will be pissed that they didn't make the "date" B) If they have it ready but just sit on on it to make it to that magical "date" then people will be pissed they waited. Once its done and tested, it will be released, period. Follow the members on twitter for small updates, or check the official page at: http://greenpois0n.com/ and wait……

  • sharon

    I too am anxious to get the greenpois0n j/b but i am not gonna moan about it not being out yet as i realise these guys are working very hard for us iphone, ipod etc users, for those that are not happy to have to wait there is a simple solution which is, you could always buy ur apps from apple and line their pockets even more,

    • SD5150

      Its more than free apps, its about using a device how you want! I cant live without SBS settings and 5 icon dock/springboard, etc…Plus I like to make my own themes and I can't develop on my iPhone 4 until its jailbroken. Also, its lining the pockets of developers not Apple (ok a percent to Apple) so support good developers!

      • sharon

        Hi yeah i realise its more than just free apps i just get sick of people moaning cos no j/b out ye,t as i said these guys work very hard on our behalf so u and i and others can run our iphones etc as we want !!!!!!!!!

  • abe

    "not to mention potentially reveal the exploit"
    Well, according to blogs and web reports, "apple will have to release new hardware to fix this problem", so somewhere the bloggers got things screwed up again. The jailbreakers are using software to overwrite software on the phone. I am assuning then that apple will be able to write new software to get rid of the jailbreak software…
    idiot bloggers.

    • SD5150

      You don't understand the exploit then. If it is the kind they said, then yes Apple would need newer hardware to stop it. Its a bootrom exploit that works on all current devices so a software update will not be enough to block it.

  • Shani

    Hi guy 27 sep is the release date, That's what i heard…let's c if it is the right date.

    • zoe5

      who's your source? if that's true then it will be ownage!! 🙂

  • Abe

  • nathan

    my 3g was updated to 4.1 on itunes can I still unlock / jail break it? If so how?

    • Nettles

      have to wait for green pois0n to finish.

  • xiaoa10

    I don't care about the new jailbreak way but the if i will jialbreak my iphone again, I am very hesitating, as i heared that the Apple will released the new patent product which can recognition the jialbroken user and limited the iphone features , oh ,that is horrible at first , i just cared about the movie features and my Aneesoft iphone video converter , but if the IOS limited the features and i can't watch movies on iphone after Apple publish the new security product , what should i do ?

    • Nettles

      It's a lie. The watermark on the iphone is a lie. I just did a false jailbreak for my IOS 4.1. Rebooted it. Then took it to apple. They couldn't tell it was jailbroken. It was a lie. Don't worry. If you jail break again you will be fine. Yes….Make sure that you wait for Green Pois0n. The others have sever problems.
      Also, I have been reading and they say that it is a lie about the jailbreak water mark

    • thats totally a lie, and illegal… jailbreaking is allowed by law and the only thing apple can do to you is not accept your warranty, which seems stupid too tbh.

  • Onyx

    I've read from different jailbreak forums that the jailbreak will be released on Halloween. The jailbreak is complete just doing some test runs. But from what I understood the jailbreak will be released Halloween. I can't wait!

    • zoe5

      hmmmm according to one guy here its on sept 27… if its on halloween uh-oh… that's a long wait to go…

  • Dipesh

    Will the forseen jailbreak software, be able to jailbreak an IPod Touch 3G (MC model)??? Waiting for an update…

    • zoe5


  • lokienloki

  • Sunny

    Realease date please

  • Goodsitenot

    I hate sites like this that give false headlines, and on top of that, they are about 3 days behind… I heard the "swimmingly" news quite a while ago. I'll be sure to come back so that you will be the "first" to let me know.



  • Brad

    I really want to jailbreak/unlock 4.1 SO bad………..

    • Noah

      u should b able to jailbreak ios 4.1 with redsn0w here in a couple weeks

    • Ritesh

      me too…..

  • jack

    is green poison like redsnow (a software) ?. if so can you get it for mac

  • iRich

    where is that DATE, u fakers :@

  • will

    i disagree–'swimmingly' does not give us ANY idea about the nearness of the release or on the magnitude of their progress. Now, don't get me wrong–don't mislead this to mean 'I DEMAND IT NOW' or complaining its not here yet–but this 'release date update' does not give us any renewed glimmer of hope about us putting jailbroken 4.1 on our devices.

  • praised bibi

    CAN SOMEONE please reassure me that there will be a jailbreak for the ipod 2nd generation MC model! i have been checking the internet every 10 mins for the past 2 weeks.

    • Be patient

      Yes there will

    • Matu

      There will be one for the iPod touch 2g the new jailbreak is said to be for all devices running 4.1 or lower and anything after for life.

  • Rainer Lopez

    I’ll wait, beware of fake greenp”0″ison..

  • Gortess

    That isn’t a release date update, that’s just an update >.<
