Good news for iOS owners as the Chronic Dev Team is close to releasing its SHAtter-based greenpois0n jailbreak for iOS devices. A series of tweets suggests the tool is ready to roll and points to an availability date of 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 AM GMT. The update will most likely debut on the greenpois0n website which can be found here. Right now the greenpois0n website is a placeholder and all the action is happening on the Chronic Dev Team’s twitter page.

The greenpois0n jailbreak is exciting as it promises a lifetime jailbreak for Apple’s latest generation devices including the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and iPad. Though some may be disappointed, this tool will not work with the iPhone 3GS, the 3G, and the iPod touch 3G. The word comes straight from the Chronic Dev Team,

“greenpois0n supports: The iPad, the iPhone 4, and the iPod touch 4. Probably the AppleTV as well.”

Astute readers will notice the qualifier at the end that points to the Apple TV. Additional tweets from team members confirm that this exploit will also work with the Apple TV and work is underway to add support for this streaming media device. The screenshot below, courtesy of Will Strafach (@willstraf), gives us a glimpse of what is to come.

Additional information suggests greenpois0n will be an untethered jailbreak and will hacktivate the iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1, allowing the handset to bypass iTunes activation and run post-jailbreaking without a SIM. Thanks to the US government, all this jailbreaking action is now legal in the US. Yay! No more jailbreaking in fear wondering if a band of men in jeans and black turtlenecks are waiting around the corner, ready to confiscate your iPhone.

Stealing the words of Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja), Sunday is indeed going to be a fun day. Anyone with an iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, iPad or Apple TV excited by this news and waiting anxiously for this weekend to arrive?

    As an owner of an iPad and a 4th gen iPod touch this is wonderful news!!! Can’t wait to get some cool tweaks running on these devices. I recently installed iOS 4.2 beta 2 on my iPad and now I get to see if infinifolders will work on it. Yay. Ohh and those who jailbreak for installous and free apps…..get a job and spend a buck or two. Support developers.

    On Septebmber 13th the headline stated that the Greenpois0n Shatter jailbreak will work on all Ios devices including iphone 3GS and 3G. As it turns out that was a lie. If the exploit can only be used on the new A4 chip then you knew all along it was only for Iphone 4. Shameful on whomever perpetrated this lie

    WHAT THE HELL?!?!?!? NO 3GS SUPPORT?!?! WHAT THE #$%@ IS THIS BULL? SO EVEN WHEN THIS PIECE OF CRAP IS RELEASED THERE WILL STILL BE NO WAY TO UNLOCK AND JAILBREAK iPHONE 3GS WITH 4.1?

    SCREW YOU DEV TEAM

    will greenpoison work for iphone 3g 3gs?

  • Wayne Smith

    i am hoping that an iPhone 4, jailbroken and unlocked running 4.0.1 will be able to jailbreak with this new Greenpois0n. Does anyone know if that will be possible or do I have to restore my iphone to make this new procedure work? Any help in this matter will be appreciated.

    3GS with ios 4.1 will have to play another waiting game. This time without any time frame.
