Greenpois0n Jailbreak 4.1: No Mac Download – Your Windows Problems?

Earlier today we announced that the Greenpois0n jailbreak for Windows was now live, this was particularly popular as a lot of people were having problems with Limera1n, therefore we thought we would see if many people are experiencing problems with Greenpois0n.

The good news is that we have received some comments suggesting that it is working pretty well, however as you would expect some people are still experiencing error messages etc.

I think it would be fair to say that Greenpois0n is not perfect as some people had to run it a few times before it worked, one reader suggests that not switching off their iPod Touch 3rd-gen (running iOS 4.1) at the start resulted in Greenpois0n working, so perhaps try that.

The most common problem seems to result in Greenpois0n saying that it cannot detect DFU mode, I have looked around for a fix to no avail, therefore if anyone knows of a workaround please let us know in the comments section below.

The Chronic Dev Team recently tweeted “if u need some help we are offering some support go to IRC: irc.chronic-dev.org #greenpois0n”, I do not use IRC, however this could prove to be a very useful way of getting round all of your Greenpois0n problems. Another tweet explained that you must upgrade to iOS 4.1 on your iPhone/iPod Touch beforehand and 3.2.2 on your iPad.

Feel free to describe any problems you have in the comments section below, we will do our utmost to point you in the direction of fixes and workarounds when we find them.

Update: If you are still having problems check out the video embedded below, it has apparently helped some of our readers with the Limera1n and Greenpois0n jailbreak.
