While we still wait for Chronic Dev-Team to release GreenPois0n for iOS 4.1 devices, one of the members of the team has confirmed that the tool will support Hacktivation after it’s released.
If you head over to the Twitter account of Chronic Dev-Team member p0sixninja, you will see this tweet that confirms hacktivation. For those of you who are unaware, hacktivation is the process that bypasses Apple’s official procedure of activating before you can use it. Once a device is hacktivated, it will then allow you to use it without an official SIM card.
This little trick will come in very handy with the release of GreenPois0n, as previous methods were often a lot of hassle when using tools such as Spirit and JailbreakMe.
The only disappointing thing is that the tool is still not out, despite the members of the jailbreaking community suggesting it would be out in ‘days’.
Do you plan to hacktivate your iPhone 4 after using GreenPois0n? We’ll be sure to let you know if there are any further updates on this.
