GreenPois0n Vs LimeRa1n Jailbreak: Release Date Conflicts

While the news of GeoHot’s latest jailbreak has been met with celebration amongst iPhone users across the world, it seems as if Chronic Dev-Team, the guys behind GreenPois0n are not too happy about his latest move.

If you haven’t heard, Geohot has come out of hiding and announced that his new jailbreak Limera1n will be available on Monday 11th October, just a single day after GreenPois0n is released.

Talk about stealing someones thunder. While everyone patiently waited for the Chronic Dev-Team to announce a release date for GreenPois0n, little did we know that Geohot was waiting to pounce. Could he of known that GreenPois0n would only support the new iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4 months ago?

The Chronic Dev-Team only announced supported devices recently, which was met by global disappointment due to the fact that users were under the impression that GreenPois0n would jailbreak all devices – enter GeoHot.

Just hours after Chronic Dev-Team announced a 10/10/10 release date for GreenPois0n, Geohot announced that Limera1n would be available the next day and that it would jailbreak ALL devices with a new bootrom exploit, i.e the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Obviously, those of you with an iPhone 3G or 3GS are delighted by the timing of his jailbreak, but I doubt the Chronic Dev-Team are. What are your thoughts on this? Are you still going to download GreenPois0n tomorrow, or are you now going to wait until Geohot releases more information on LimeRa1n?
