GreenPois0n: iPhone 4.1 Unlock vs. Jailbreak

It seems there are some confusion amongst our readers who believe that a GreenPois0n jailbreak on iOS 4.1 will be useless, unless an unlock method becomes available at the same time. We’ll give you a few reasons why both are entirely different.

We previously asked you what you were waiting for more between a jailbreak and unlock, and the results were clearly divided. We’ve been listening to what you have been saying about the imminent release of GreenPois0n, and it looks like most of you are just waiting to jailbreak the device first, rather than pursue an unlocking method.

If you didnt know, jailbreaking the device will then allow you to run apps that are not available on the Apple App Store, using an App store created specifically for jailbroken devices – It’s called Cydia. A jailbroken device will also allow you to run various tweaks and mods, such as theme customization and enabling support for juicy features for free, like internet tethering – which definitely wouldn’t happen on the official iOS software.

The ability to run 3rd-party applications is a good enough reason to jailbreak for most, but others just like the freedom that the method brings, rather than use their iPhone under the strict control of Apple, and let’s face it – they do like to be in control these days.

If you really wanted to, you could just unlock your device straight away by paying to do so, but we’re guessing that most of you are waiting for the iPhone Dev-Team to come up with a free method of unlocking on iOS 4.1 for the iPhone 4. If you are one of these people, then you will have to wait for GreenPois0n to release first.

What will you use the jailbreak for?
