Jailbreak 4.1 on iPhone 3GS: GreenPois0n not needed?

By Alan Ng - Oct 8, 2010

We have some good news for those of you who are still disappointed that GreenPois0n won’t support the iPhone 3G and 3GS, as it has been reported that a brand new jailbreak is currently in the works.

As reported from iPhoneDownloadBlog, MuscleNerd, a member of the iPhone Dev Team sent a message on Twitter when asked if GreenPois0n would be able to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS or not:

”SHAtter doesn’t apply to iPhone3GS (or iPod touch 3G). New owners of those should wait for future @comex JB”

If you didn’t know, Comex is another member of the iPhone Dev-Team so that is definitely something to look forward to after GreenPois0n is released this Sunday.

As far as we know, this new jailbreak will only apply to the iPhone 3GS, since you can already jailbreak the iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1 using Sn0wbreeze. It is worth pointing out tho, that there isn’t an estimated time for the new jailbreak, so don’t expect it to release straight after GreenPois0n.

We’ll keep you updated when we hear more on this. If you have an iPhone 3GS, let us know your thoughts on this.

    Well i gotta tell u I’m pised at the fact that I made a donation to jailbreak community. What I’m really wondering is why all you hackers dont get together and release ONE software? Why is there many different softwares made by the same people? afterall there isnt as much hardware than the jailbreaking software! Another comment mentioned here, what about the people who their phones have been replaced by apple ? one familiar with programing, could argue that there is another way to jailbreak the iPhone, hacking the very iTunes’s core to add cydia. Wether if it is permissible to publish this information here or not. Not to mention the open AAIP port for ubuntu users, which makes it even easier!

    So when can I jailbreak my iPod 3G ???

  • tommy K2

    dev team have you some way make a deal with apple to dump all 3gs users to force them to buy iphone 4????you van even said that you cant jailbrake the iphone…..so stupid you are…..

  • wildgunman999

    Bloody disappointed- been waiting weeks, checking updates daily and now my 3gs and I are excluded from the party.
    Can someone start charging money for this jailbreak deal and run it as a business, so I can pay and get what I need, when I need it?

  • Ace

    I did save shsh but I had to exchange my 3GS and my shsh will not work on my new phone. 🙁

  • h4x0r1337

    I was waiting for Greenpois0n to jailbreak my 3GS 4.1 since 2 months
    Now they're saying that it's only for 4th Gen? This sucks.
    I hope Comex won't be late..

  • Jim

    GeoHot will release Limera1n on 11 Oct which can jailbreak all iDevices. 🙂

  • Dmitriy

    what the fukk? people told me that jailbreak for 3gs will come out this sunday. I bought my 3gs 4.0.2 and I cant downgread it because I don't have my shsh broobs saved. I've be waiting for it like a month and now they said it will come out for 3gs. fuck dev team.

  • SkinNY

    I won’t deny it’s not good news for all 3GS users. Me myself am one of the many but I understand completely. Jailbreaking iPhones isn’t supposed to be an easy task. I do applaud the fact that they even were able to jailbreak the 4. All that’s left for me to say is good luck and don’t let us down.

  • najam din

    fml! i've been waiting on greenpois0n for everrrrrr!! and now they tell us it wont work on the 3gs! -_-

  • Alex06507

    I have backed dev team all the way through the rather long wait for the new greenpois0n jailbreak but I have to admit I am quite disappointed with this new revelation. I’m pretty sure they could have told us 3GS owners that we wouldn’t b getting it at the same time. They knew it wouldn’t unlock so I can understand why people are upset. But these people are using their own time and money to make something for you people that you are getting for free. Be greatfull instead of being selfish. They have disappointed many people but the iPhone 4 is the new toy for many also. Most 3GS users should already b jailbroken or u didn’t listen when you were told not to upgrade. If so it’s your own fault not dev teams.

    • Is it still my fault when I got an iPhone 3GS with 4.1 firmware for my birthday and my parents wanted me to be happy?

    • Carpavor

      Complete agree, they don't have. They are working on it though.

    • jason

      I HAD a 4.0.1 jailbreak, SHSHs included, but experienced a HARDWARE FAILURE. Had to get a replacement, rendering them useless. Not my fault dumbass.

  • Hutty

    On the page it sais"As far as we know, this new jailbreak will only apply to the iPhone 3GS," I am confused

  • love

    who the fuk needs this bs i will go to att in 1 month when there prices for i phone 4 drop to 99 as well as prices for a 3g network and forever forget the jkoffs from dev team fuk off

  • Mr. X

    Thats Great! it better not be another long wait!

  • 3GSpissoff

    Thats so. Messed up 3GS owners need some love too. That fucked up that 05.13.04 is preventing me from jailbreaking and unlocking my phone. I greenpoisin my ass.

    I believe in everyone 50/50 I have a iPhone 3GS and I was waiting for greenpois0n to jailbreak my phone and now after all this time it’s was only for 4th generation devices????!!???!??!?!? WTF yo. And yes I know that it’s free and everyone should be happy but why is it everytime a jailbreak come out iPhone 3GS users are the last one to get jailbroken…. And If the dev team wants to start charging people to download the jailbreak that’s fine with me I don’t mind paying 20 bucks for a program to jailbreak my phone but it better work if I’m paying for it. I think this whole waiting for iPhone 3GS jailbreak is about pissing me off. But I guess I have no chose to wait for comex jb to come out because I refuse to go to apple and waste my money on a new idevice just to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS works fine for me I just need it jailbroken so it can be better!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I do feel rather annoyed! The thing is I have been with hope for weeks in hope as such a big thing was made of it being such a big exploit and so soon after 4.1 was released. They kept it so hush hush and kept saying it would be released soon and not till now that a date was given and I will not be able to use it on 3gs. I understand the complexites of the process and thank them for there hours of hard work. However! I feel that I’ve been getting chatted and led on without getting laid at the end of the night.

  • hax0rzism

    I have a question amongst the furious clutter –
    If i have iphone 3G running 4.1, with baseband 05.14.02.
    what must i do to JB / unlock it ?
    Thank you, for any replies !!

  • jay

  • idrezz

    i've been using my 3gs as an ipod!! can't downgrade it since i got error 1600 and 1604. damn. had to buy another cheap phone just to wait a new jailbreak for 3gs.

  • haribo

    • Jason

      Some of us HAD done what they said. I HAD a 4.0.1 jailbreak and SHSH saved and had a HARDWARE FAILURE. I had to get a replacement, and that rendered my SHSHs useless. And SHAtter WONT BE ON 3GS? WHAT A CROCK OF SHIT. Yay for Limera1n!
