GreenPois0n Release Date: iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Days Away?

We have another update on the release status of iOS 4.1 jailbreaking tool GreenPois0n now, and possibly the best news that iPhone owners have heard for a little while. It could be coming very soon according to a recent update on Twitter.

As reported from RedmondPie, iPhone hacker Pod2g replied to a user message on Twitter when asked for the release period for Chronic Dev-Team’s GreenPois0n tool.

He was asked if it would be release within days or weeks, and Pod2g said this in reply: ”I would say days”. In case you didn’t know, Pod2g was the user responsible for discovering a new bootrom exploit within iOS 4.1, so his update can be considered quite trustyworthy in the jailbreaking scene.

However this is not a confirmation by all means, until we hear something from Chronic Dev-Team – the guys who will post the full jailbreak instructions when they become available.

Yesterday we asked you what takes priority for you between a jailbreak or unlock – read the results from that article here. It would be nice if GreenPois0n gets released this weekend, but I don’t see it happening yet.

Let us know your thoughts on this.

    @Ben & Lewis. I don’t know what bothers you two husband and wife. You both seem to against my good intentions. Just on case you idiots don’t know, but IT is my life. I am spend many hours on the Internet researching because I have big projects to work on. I’m not talking about pcs, iPhones and shit. I am talking about building multi million dollars WAN infrastructure. Once in a while I am taking a break, so here Iam having fun and help answering people questions to the best of my knowledge. I have been an IT guy since the day the Internet first became available to the public in thr 90s. This is how I earn my living. This is how I manage to own a home my family’s living in and a vacation home for vacationing. My wife is a medical professional, so we don’t talk about work whenever we are together. We only talk about sex, what good food to eat and where to travel next. By way, my jailbroken iPhone 4 has no games on it. Can you two fags show me how?

      Hi Steve

      I;m your biological momma. Looks like your foster parents didn't bring you up too well, did they? You sharing the same name as Mr Jobs does not warrant your arrogance.

      Fuck off and die.

    JB allows you to download free apps; including the stupid Apple’sTV: free movies and shit. If you don’t plan to switch to other GSM carriers, then keeping your baseband at 5.13 or lower isn’t an issue. I am with AT&T, but I always keeps mine unlocked. You never know when you might to switch a sim card for other GSM carrier.

    If I have a 3GS w/ AT&T & ios 4.1. When this comes out I can jailbreak it without a problem in theory?

  • steve

    @ Matt

    You are an idiot. Do research before open your mouth.

  • tang

    Those are the current firmwares. 4.1 is the offical iOS currently and 4.2 is in the beta stages.


    WHAT IF I HAVE AN I 4 with 4.1 AND MY BASEBAND 1.59.00 can I still unlock after I jailbreak?

    • steve


  • tang

    I just got a iphone 4 4.0.2 with baseband 01.59.00. Once greenp0ison jailbreak comes out, would ultrasn0w be able to unlock my baseband? Since i didnt fall into the trap on updating to 4.1 which changes a newer baseband.

    • letmeout

      Im in the same situtation.. someone reply to tang!! and what is the diff between the 4.1, 4.2 and the 4.0.2..

    • nash

      yes your very right you will be able to unlock with 1.59 baseband. someone with 4.1 is out of luck

      • Steve

        That is not true. My iPhone 4 is on OS 4.1 and my baseband is at 1.59, which is unlockable. I used the Tinyumbrella to do the upgrade and that’s how I was able to preserve my original baseband

        • BIG DAY

          THANKYOU STEVE…..

  • Steve

    Apple better not touch my phone. I purchased my iPhone 4 outright for over 600 bucks. Fu Mr. Jobs.

  • CrashNBurn

    Sounds good to me! Hopefully it will be out by this weekend. I got my iPhone 4 with 4.0.2 already preinstalled on it, iphones are nice and all but I don’t like em much without the jailbreak. Anyone out there have an idea on what apple is trying to do with that patent to detect jailbroken iPhones or is it a rumor?

  • miikedenton

    The whole section about pod2g could be classified as false, y'know. He isn't involved with the dev team anymore. Although, then again, he might still be updated by the team due to his support with it.

  • jj you =

    only jailbreak , not unlocking

  • sunala2

    So is that mean Cant I unlock my iPhone 4 on 4.1???? only the jailbreak?? reply someone ASAP.

    • miikedenton

      it means you will be able to jailbreak it and until ultrasn0w is updated you cannot unlock it.

    • Damien

      exactly, no unlock for the new baseband

  • Samo

    Hmm I just updated my iphone 3G from 4.0 which had made my phone totally dysfunctional to 4.1 and now I can't use my phone at all…but I am still better off having no phone than on that lousy 4.0. Can't wait for GreenpoisOn to unlock my phone

    • phil

      you can always downgrade to 3.1.3 until jb is relesed

    • Steve

      The green tool will not be helpful to you unless you are with AT&T.

      • Matt

        god steve u r hella stupid the jailbreak will allow u to not have to be with at&t

        • Steve

          You don’t much about JB do you Matt. The guy has upgraded his OS to 4.1 through ITunes updates, which means the baseband got upgraded to 5.14. Greenpois0n is a JB tool and will not be bundle with unlock. Do research before giving out false information. Dumb ass
