Just a few hours ago, @pod2g , a famous iOS hacker, posted on his twitter a video of a untethered jailbreak that he finally got it working.
In the video, it shows a iPod touch running on iOS 5.0. Pod2g showcased himself opening Cydia, indicating its jailbroken. He then switched off his itouch, and turn it back on, and reopened Cydia, indicating its a untethered boot.
This comes as a good news to us, seeing that Christmas is round the corner. A very good pleasant gift to all users out there waiting for a untethered jailbreak.
Right now as of posting, the untethered jailbreak will work on iOS 5.0 for all devices except ipad 2 and iphone 4s.
Let’s rejoice and wait.
Cydia most awaited update has just been released!!
The developers of this update(chpwn & saurik) had spent hours upon hours of their time to improve their codings, improve the speed of cydia, better graphics and user interface.
With this update, you will have:
– better reload times
– ‘easier to understand’ warning/error messages
– enhanced graphic
Best thing of all, it’s easy to upgrade.
Let’s get started shall we?
You can get it from http://www.greenpois0n.com
As of last week, Chronic team had officially release the Mac version of greenpois0n, and the Windows version few days after.
This greenpois0n jailbreak allows you to jailbreak your iDevice(all supported) with iOS 4.2.1 untethered.
This tool is simple to use. Off your device and close your iTunes before proceeding with the jailbreak.
TIPS: You might want to have a fresh restore before jailbreaking.
NOTE: User who had jailbreaked 4.2.1 using redsnow monte can just run greenpois0n over it. It will still work.
Right now, the Cydia store is being flooded with lots of traffic, and so some of the sources might be unable to work.
Its best to wait a few more days before jailbreaking.
If you need help. just post it below and I will try to help.
Many jailbreakers that had kept a close eyes on the jailbreaking scene should know that right now, idevice with old bootrom can be jailbreaked untethered. For new bootrom idevice, it can only be jaibreaked with redsnow TETHERED.
Comex and the iphone dev team had came out with a way to jailbreak untethered.
The iphone dev team had way to make use of the developer built 4.2b3 SHSH for untethered while @comex came out with a better way which does not even users to restore it.
Comex had initially stated that his exploit will be released on the eve of Christmas. But today, @comex tweeted that he might missed his due date.
Does this means that he would not be able to push out the jailbreak by this christmas?
Let’s wish comex and the iphone dev team good luck as we wait for the jailbreak.
As there are currently too many iphone devices and jailbreaking method, I will start afresh and only do with iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4 only.
So here goes:
ios 4.0: http://www.jailbreakme.com
ios 4.0.1: http://www.jailbreakme.com
ios4.0.2: NOT AVAILABLE
ios 4.1: limera1n, greenpois0n
ios 4.2: NOT STABLE YET
NOTE: To preserve your baseband for unlocking, please use tiny umbrella. Tiny umbrella is now updated for ios 4.2 too. Lucky you all iphone 4 users, as it is only for iphone 4 for now.
NOTE: iPhones sold in Singapore are not locked. Therefore, if you bought your iphone from Singapore, you do not need to worry about baseband upgrade. 🙂
Last Saturday, geohot realeased his beta version of Limera1n, which allows users to jailbreak most idevices in firmware 4.1.
However, alot of users experienced problems. It is adviced to avoid that jailbreak as it is not stable. It’s currently in beta 4.
However,links to those who need it:
Next up, is the long awaited greepois0n from chronic team. This time, it does not uses the SHAtter exploit, as they do not want to waste 2 exploits at the same time. It just makes it easier for apple to patch it. Instead, it uses the exploit by limera1n.

Guide for jailbreaking greenpois0n will be posted soon.
The dev team of the new iOS 4.1 jailbreak exploit had started to test their exploit.
It seems that this exploit is going well.
more about the news
A fake greenpois0n tool had been released around the Internet.
This fake tool is a dangerous malicious program that steals user information.
It is still unknown if it steals user password.
Everyone should stay away from this fake tool. Do not believe in other jailbreaking tool, because when the official one is released, it will be announced on the development team website, and we will update everyone for it.
Once again, thank p0sixninja for this exploit. They are still working on the final stages of the jailbreaking.
Currently, the iOS 4.1 Jailbreak is being worked on by the chronic development team.
The codename of the 4.1 Jailbreak is Greenpois0n.
There are no news of when is the release date,but is definetely being worked on. This exploit is a bootrom exploit,meaning even if Apple comes out with a new firmware,it can still be jailbroken.
