Update: Download Greenpois0n RC5 Untethered iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak [Mac & Windows]

As we know that Greenpois0n for untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak is ready to be released very soon. Here is an update on it. P0sixninja, the developer behind the Greenpois0n tool and iPhone Chronic Team key member has confirmed that the team is working hard to resolve few errors left in the kernel payload.

The developer confirmed this on his Twitter account:

Were all working as fast as we can. A few issues left to be resolved in our kernel payload. Thanks for your patience

Previously the Chronic Team has posted a teaser video showing untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak on an iPhone 4 device. The upcoming version of the Greenpois0n tool is said to do an untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad running iOS 4.2.1 without SHSH blobs for iOS 4.2b3.

While Chronic Dev Team is left with resolving few bug, iPhone Dev Team has ported Monte method to iOs 4.1 kernel to do an untethered iOS 4.2.1 without 4.2beta3 SHSH blobs saved on Cydia.

For now you can download Redns0w 0.9.7 for Mac OS and use the HOW TO GUIDE TO UNTETHERED IOS 4.2.1 jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPod touch or iPad. Remember if you rely on the Ultra sn0w unlock then stay away from the betas of Redns0w.

  • Maplestorypics

    I have been waiting for this a long time

  • Scarr2424

  • Ryan

    • david

    Man these guys are taking forever, and if I have to read one more review stating “Wow! The latest and greatest jailbreak ever for the latest firmware………coming soon, maybe, sometime in the next 10 years for sure” – Either the talent has dried up and we are relying on 12 year kids to finish their homework before they start on the jailbreak exploits or Apple have become amazing at making sure they have no more security flaws.

  • Tylerdawson

    no clue but if so there are going to be many people disappointed and ashamed of Dev – Team and i hope we dont have to be….

  • Dsinton

    I have to be honest, no disrespect to the hard and wonderful work of these people, but it’s beginning to sound like a broken record, almost done, right around the corner, BUT not yet!, very close, few bugs left, but we wont release it, personally I have heard so many different versions,, I’ve heard that untethered jailbreak for 4.2.1 with no blobs needed is done but wont be released til 4.3 as to not burn an exploit, then I’ve heard you will need 4.1 saved to use it, or current 4.2.1b3, I am probably in a similar situation as alot of people, I bought an iphone 4 and gave up my 3g on the premise that guess what? it was around the corner, coming christmas, and my iphone4 came with ios 4.2.1 stock, no chance of saving any blobs below that, I can only say I am beginning to get tired of just around the corner and not this version but one that requires saved this or that, how about no saved anything needed, geohot has supposedly said he has it, but rumors are that there is infighting, I thought everyone was developing these exploits for the good of the community, not each other, well we shall see if around the corner or right after 4.3 turns into another around the corner, sorry but this is becoming a joke, I don’t mean to offend anyone and I greatly appreciate the tremendous work of everyone involved, I too used, jailbreakme.com for my iphone 3g and currently have the redsnow tethered jailbreak for my iphone4 but it is becoming frustrating, keeping my phone charged and a laptop near by, I have had a few close calls and just wish if it isnt ready or will not “realistically” be ready soon then please say it, we can handle that, just please quit being wishful and be realistic. thanks, just had to vent sorry.

    for itouch 2nd gen (MB model), they are jailbroken for life. As for the itouch 3rd gen (MC model) you should wait

  • Knightsfork

    what a load of crap – deliver or get out of the way for someone who can……

    • Mdaggs7106

      Why dont you deliver???? Oh thats right BC your too dumb to create a hack that exploits apples locked down devices….. I have created exploits in the past and if not correct then they will “BRICK” your idevice permenately. I went through 3 ipods when making mine… people that spend Weeks or even months (not hours) to create jailbreaks, are intelligent enough to make these and be sure to not destroy your expensive device…. so please, **** UP AND BE PATIENT!!!

  • Kelvin370

    I’ve tried for three times, but it didn’t have a any loader on screen at my ipad ( 4.2.1) . :(

  • Riaz01

    Apple will ALWAYS close loopholes. Do you remember that IMEI / serial number changer years ago for the original iphone? No updates since – why.. ITS BECAUSE APPLE BURNED THE SERIAL INTO THE HARDWARE CHIP! Wont you hackers EVER listen. Give up and go home!!
