Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch4G/3G, and iPad Released

Written By Unknown on Monday, October 11, 2010 | 7:15 PM


greenpois0n downloadThe greenpois0n iOS 4.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G/3G and iPad has now been released by Chronic Dev Team. Finally! The greenpois0n jailbreak was originally supposed to be released on 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 AM GMT but was delayed due to limera1n being released. The greenpois0n jailbreak team had to save the SHAtter exploit, and instead use the USB bootrom exploit that Geohot used in the limera1n jailbreak.

Currently the greenpois0n software is only available for Windows users only, and can be downloaded from the greenpois0n download page. If you try it, do let us know how it works for you in the comments. If you are a limera1n user and you try greenpois0n, let us know which one you liked better.

Greenpois0n will be available for Mac and Linux too, but no ETA has been announced for these platforms. I've installed Windows 7 via Bootcamp on my Mac so I can use greenpois0n. If you are a Mac user and you can't wait for the release then you can also try virtualization software like VMWare or Crossover (unfortunately they are not free, Google it) to use greenpois0n.

Update #3: greenpois0n download link is back up on the download page

Update #4: greenpois0n for Linux is now available

Greenpois0n is currently in RC3, so there may be bugs. If greenpois0n doesn't install Cydia for you then you can try using limera1n instead, which worked for me.

October 11, 2010 at 7:43 PM

October 11, 2010 at 7:45 PM

Does it work for iTouch 2g MC 4.1?

October 11, 2010 at 7:59 PM

When will a jailbreak cone out for iPod touch 2g 4.1 mc model?

October 11, 2010 at 7:59 PM

Is it a shatter jailbreak ?

October 11, 2010 at 8:01 PM

What about Greenpoison for iPod Touch 2G/iPhone 3G? Any chances?

October 11, 2010 at 8:02 PM

hey, does this jailbreak work on ipod 2g?

October 11, 2010 at 8:02 PM

i will thanks everyone to made this possible.


October 11, 2010 at 8:08 PM

i think it worked but cydia isn't on there. anybody know how to get cydia?

October 11, 2010 at 8:08 PM

Just went throught the second time. Totally failed on an iPhone 4 4.1.

October 11, 2010 at 8:10 PM

You can use redsn0w to jailbreak your 2g on mac or windows :)

October 11, 2010 at 8:10 PM

There's limera1n too. Did you try that?

October 11, 2010 at 8:13 PM

why to have greenpois0n while limera1n working fine?

Please work on the unlock is better. anyway, thanks for all your hard works. thanks

October 11, 2010 at 8:13 PM

i think if u do greenpoison jailbreak, u will get the GP icon and install cydia

October 11, 2010 at 8:19 PM

IPhone 4 with 4.1, no cydia after jailbreak.

October 11, 2010 at 8:22 PM

So it works for iphone 3gs 4.1 firmware 05.14.02?

October 11, 2010 at 8:29 PM

Still no iPod Touch 2G/iPhone 3G??? Surprise surprise!

October 11, 2010 at 8:44 PM

Good news. And now the another issue is unlock..

October 11, 2010 at 8:46 PM

greenpoison said the jailbreak was complete but no cydia or anything. i have a 3gs.

October 11, 2010 at 8:55 PM

So what the fuck did it works or not

October 11, 2010 at 9:02 PM

..this pieces of shit does not working! ..hey devteam go to hell with your frend GEODICK who made also crap

October 11, 2010 at 9:17 PM

I have my iPhone 4 jailbreaked with limera1n, is it better that I use greenpoison or leave The limera1n on? Whats your advise? Thanks and greetings from the netherlands

October 11, 2010 at 9:20 PM

If you're already jailbroken then there is no point in doing it again.

October 11, 2010 at 9:24 PM

Well i used limera1n and greenpois0n on ip4. The difference which i noticed is tht with greenpois0n cydia loads much faster as compared to the one in limera1n jailbreak. I was having loading issues with cydia in limera1n, but thanks to chronic dev team for greenpois0n. ;)

October 11, 2010 at 9:27 PM

i did jailbreak with greenpois0n over limera1n and it sorted my issues with cydia and it loads faster...

October 11, 2010 at 9:38 PM

Why are macs getting screwed with these releases. Limera1n says 7yrs for Mac. Just curious.

October 11, 2010 at 9:45 PM

It`s not their fault that you are an incompetent idiot who can`t follow simple instructions on the screen of a pc. limera1n worked fine first time around.

October 11, 2010 at 9:48 PM

So i have the limera1n jailbreak can i jailbreak greenpoison over it or should i stay with limera1n , ur replies ? Thx

October 11, 2010 at 10:00 PM

whats the difference between this and limera1n?

October 11, 2010 at 10:05 PM

For those for whom it's not working try to update your itune to version 10.. Worked for me since it installs news driver on the computer

October 11, 2010 at 10:09 PM

So what the heck with that greenpoison should i use it or stay the limera1n

October 11, 2010 at 10:11 PM

Okay. Thanks for the greenpois0n. But can anyone tell me if i can use it? Mine is an iPhone 4 AT&T locked. So i am depending on an unlock. Hacktivation too.

October 11, 2010 at 10:27 PM

yes you can use greenpois0n or limera1n to jailbreak your iPhone 4 but there's no unlock tools available for iOS 4.1 yet. you have to wait for them to release it.

October 11, 2010 at 10:28 PM

Will the jailbreak activate (I know it will not unlock)my Iphone 4.

October 11, 2010 at 10:28 PM

does limera1n/greenpos0n work on ipt 8 gb mc model on 3.1.3?
i tested limera1n on it and it said jailbreaking done but no icons added to my home screen and i used spirit an it worked

October 11, 2010 at 10:31 PM

And what about iPhone 3G?

October 11, 2010 at 10:36 PM

So what is better to use poison or limera1n ? In the end
Or if i already Jb with limera1n should i use poison on it ?

October 11, 2010 at 10:36 PM

Not working with the latest baseband on iphone4
Not unlocking

October 11, 2010 at 10:39 PM

So i don't get it. If you are already limera1n jailbroken can you just run the greepois0n over it to see if it runs smoother? Or do you have to restore first?

October 11, 2010 at 10:41 PM

I just got some serious problem, Either - limera1n and greenpo1son Doesn't jailbreak my ipad on 3.2.2. I tried upgrading to 4.2 beta 2 , but the jailbreak doesn't work...

What can i do?

October 11, 2010 at 10:52 PM

Not working on iPhone 3GS old bootrom.

October 11, 2010 at 10:52 PM

The same quetion i ask Wtf ?

October 11, 2010 at 11:08 PM

So when windows download link will be up again? i have limera1n jailbreak on my iphone 4 OS 4.1 and i have some issues whit cydia, and wanna see if greenpois0n JB fix it

Good job Chronic Dev Team.


i think that this Jailbreak doesen`t work whit OS 4.2 Beta. you need to downgrade your version of OS to 4.1

Ps. And people who asking ``is this better/smoother than limera1n. i have no personally imformation of it, but i have readed from internet. just googled and people keep saying that this will work much smooter ( greenpois0n i meant).

October 11, 2010 at 11:10 PM

I have two iPhones running on ios 4.1,both exactly the same model, boot loader and baseband.The problem is that one of them I have already Jailbreak with Limera1n two days ago,but the other one never shows Limera1n icon after the jailbreak...,today I tried the same with Greenpois0n,but it is still the same-no icon,but the tool says:jailbreak complete...
How is that possible,same phones one can and the other can not be jailbroken???

October 11, 2010 at 11:16 PM


Thats sounds like bull shit. Check your OS models/codes again. Go settings-general-and the 1st one. There you can check your model

October 11, 2010 at 11:20 PM

Why no support for iPod touch 2G?

October 11, 2010 at 11:23 PM

It's back up now.

October 11, 2010 at 11:23 PM

Jailbreak iphone 4G 4.1 with limera1n, and Unlock to FIDO carrier with Ultrasnow works GR8 thank you all

October 11, 2010 at 11:32 PM

Is one better than the other?

October 11, 2010 at 11:32 PM

No luv for iPod touch 2G?

October 11, 2010 at 11:42 PM

I did...,what the model should be???both are MC132B

October 11, 2010 at 11:52 PM

@Paccin what model as in iPhone 3G, 3GS etc.

October 11, 2010 at 11:55 PM

Well I'm currently using Limera1n and so far No Problems. BUT!! they need a List on what will work for iOS 4.1, as far as Apps is concerned.

October 11, 2010 at 11:57 PM

does greenposion unlock the iphone 3g?

October 12, 2010 at 12:03 AM

still not working!!! STOP OFFER US CRAPPY BULLSHIT

October 12, 2010 at 12:25 AM

Tried greenpois0n on my ipad 3.2.2. Didn't work! says "jailbreak fail".. and got my ipad freezed at recovery mode (the USB cable and itunes logo image). I had to use TinyUmbrella to KICK my ipad out of recovery mode... Limera1n worked better! eventhough i don't see CYDIA installer when i started limera1n app, (i see internet connection error instead inside limera1n), atleast limera1n did not cause my ipad to be stuck in recovery mode.. :(

October 12, 2010 at 12:29 AM

Yes , GP can't be patched !!

October 12, 2010 at 12:42 AM

Well , Reggiz.

Theres no 4.1 for ipad so my downgrade is to 3.2.2 and the jailbreak doesn't work for me.

Have someone jailbreak ipad with 3.2.2 and got cydia perfectly?

October 12, 2010 at 12:50 AM

K so i just sucked it up and restored my iphone instead and greenpois0n runs way more smoothly. It is really noticable. Recommend GP over LR anyday.

Question though for the jailbreaking vets, when a new version of GP comes out i don't have to restore i can just redo the jailbreak over itself ey?

October 12, 2010 at 12:53 AM

Some people just don't know how to apreciate what they get for free. U guys who are upset just shut the fuck up if u can't say thanks and others enjoy the freedom of their phone
U have to understand that the jailbreak material is not easy to make if not go make ur own.

October 12, 2010 at 12:55 AM

RC3 finally got me to install Cydia! Yay!

October 12, 2010 at 1:00 AM

Oh cool! The RC3 finally got to install Cydia on my iPT 4G.

October 12, 2010 at 1:04 AM

I have ipod 2g, jaibrake pls

October 12, 2010 at 1:11 AM

2 days ago i used the limera1n to jailbreak/unlock iphone 4 4.0.2 works like a charme but did not work with 3gs new bootrom 4.0.2, no icon shows up.
today tryed the GP and same think can anyone help plz...
3GS 4.0.2 05.13.04
thank you all

October 12, 2010 at 1:25 AM

According to my wife:
The worms had to get in quick before the holes got clogged up by Apple and then they couldn't eat it anymore. If that happened then they would have to spend ages trying to find more holes so they could get back into the Apple...
And here I thought she didn't understand jailbreaking.

October 12, 2010 at 1:31 AM

Is it okay if I have jailbroken my ip 4 using limerain then jb it agin using gp w/o restoring my phone in itunes?

October 12, 2010 at 1:32 AM

gp_win_rc3 is working on iPhone4, I'm able to see and install Cydia

October 12, 2010 at 1:40 AM

not working in iPhone 3G(S) 4.1 05.14.02. waiting for some program, like a pwntool.

October 12, 2010 at 1:40 AM

Does this work with ipod 2nd gen?

October 12, 2010 at 1:44 AM

Both limera1n and greenpois0n cannot work on my iPAD 3G version 3.2.2

The model of my iPAD is MC497ZP

It simply says jailbreak fail with greenpois0n.

And the limera1n logo does not appear on iPAD when it says DONE on the computer.

October 12, 2010 at 1:45 AM

Im wondering the same thing! nothing is working w/ my phone. not even limera1n...

October 12, 2010 at 2:03 AM


October 12, 2010 at 2:03 AM

i cant get apn settings for my iphone 4. tried apn edit; it doesn't install. are there ny other sources>?

October 12, 2010 at 2:05 AM

I have limera1n installed and just put greenpoison over it and it says jailbraik done but limera1n is still on it and there is no icon of greenpoison.

October 12, 2010 at 2:11 AM

So guys can i install gp if. I have limera1n

October 12, 2010 at 2:23 AM

Is the greenpoison tethered?

October 12, 2010 at 2:59 AM

What about iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3G? redsn0w only unlocks up to 3.1.3.

October 12, 2010 at 3:01 AM

I love how the iPhone is an apple product. And I'm screwed cause I don't run windows and I'm unable to jailbreak my phone. And yeah fuck emulators and all that bullshit. Come on! I waited this long. What's 7 more years for a release on the Mac(limera1n). Those motherfuckers. I know it's probably a joke. At least I hope it is. As for greenposion I was sure it was going to be release on Mac. But to no avail. I hope it's release soon.

October 12, 2010 at 3:08 AM

Greenpois0n still got PWNED, takes minutes for it to jailbreak iphone 4, while Limera1n takes seconds only. LMAO! A WHOLE TEAM VS. 1MAN WINNER? GeoHot / Release date winner? GeoHot / Reputation winner? GeoHot / Bug fixes time winner? GeoHot. LoL took dev team plenty of time to master their piece, and still on the release has bugs! lol You got owned!

October 12, 2010 at 3:08 AM

i currently have 3gs 4.0 jailbroken, If I update and use gp will cydia remeber old settings I had or do I have to re do all of that also. Sorry if its a dumb question I suck

Hans S
October 12, 2010 at 3:14 AM

Good work guys!
I have to upgrade from 4.0.1 to 4.1 on iPhone 4.
I will use tiny umbrella to keep my baseband - but will greenpois0n hacktivate my iPhone?
Somebody know's

October 12, 2010 at 3:35 AM

Redsnow .9.6b1 works for iPhone 3G on 4.1. Only bug I found so far is that bitesms crashes

October 12, 2010 at 3:59 AM

do you mean that limera1n icon i still on iphone desktop?

but did you uninstall limera1n from your iphone first`?

October 12, 2010 at 4:01 AM

Ok i just jb my phone with poison over the limera1n nothing special changed , anyone anything saw diffrent plz comment ,
I think geohot just owned dev team , just to show us he rulez!

October 12, 2010 at 4:06 AM

I got an Ipod Touch 3G
So i ran the .exe in Administrator mode (Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit) and i followed all the instructions (hold home,sleep etc...) I think it went in DFU but it still said "Waiting for DFU" i tried recovery mode several times but it still fails to to jailbreak it, Limerain didn't do anything neither

October 12, 2010 at 4:11 AM

Thanks DevTeam

I just have one Q

Cant the Dev Team just edit the patch download that apple will be doing (4.1.1)? I mean if XDA-Dev for Windows mobile can do it why cant the dev team do it? so this way no issue with updating to 4.1.1

oh well

October 12, 2010 at 4:33 AM

iphone 4 running os 4.1, used greenpois0n rc3 and all looks to be working fine. loader appeared, ran that to get cydia installed!

thanks guys, hpefully be worth the wait!

October 12, 2010 at 4:39 AM

Are either of you having issues where your battery runs down quicker? With limera1n, myself and others had this happen. For example, from 100% to 13% in 4 hours idle. However, even though it was idel, no apps running, data was going out. It's very odd.

October 12, 2010 at 4:49 AM

I have no problems with lime on iPhone 4 4.1. Battery usage has increased a little bit but that`s normal. When I say a little bit I do mean it, not like yours.

October 12, 2010 at 4:52 AM

Thank you. I did use the other one but I had a lot of my Icon go away.... I did this one and it worked like a charm an all my Icons have returned.,... now for the big question is the Unlock coming soon??

October 12, 2010 at 4:56 AM

ok i have limera1n on my ipod touch 4g can use greenpois0n over it or do i have to restore my itouch? btw wich one is better ?

October 12, 2010 at 5:14 AM

um, did you try to restart your phone? geohot said that the icon wont show for some devices.

October 12, 2010 at 5:16 AM

okay, I just jailbreak with greenpois0n over limera1n.
I actually already jailbroke my IP4 4.1 with limera1n because I just can't wait after seeing greenpois0n saying the date will be delayed again.

So after I jailbreak my device with limera1n, everything went well actually, but only after a while cydia and installous keeps crashing.

Well now I restored my IP4 and downloaded greenpois0n and just finished jailbreaking my phone.

And the result is obvious, greenpois0n is definitely faster than limera1n and less buggy.

; )

I'm neutral so don't think I'm a greenpois0n fanboy.

October 12, 2010 at 5:16 AM

is this unlock too or just jailbreak?
a friend of mine is waiting since he updated to 4.0 and his phone isn't working..

October 12, 2010 at 5:35 AM

I didnt tried limra1n but i think greenpois0n works pretty well. Dev team rocks!! Works perfectly on my ip4 4.1 so far. :)

October 12, 2010 at 5:43 AM

I guess niether Geohot nor dev tem care about 3G users...

October 12, 2010 at 5:43 AM

I can't get either one to work. Greenpois0n never acquires DFU and Limera1n runs and says done but there is no Limera1n drop on my iTouch. Any suggestions or guides out there? Anyone else having this problem with their iTouch 4.1?

October 12, 2010 at 5:55 AM

I did both! Limera1n wad easier than greeenpois0n! But both are good! Thanks both geohot and dev team n chronic!!! Thank you y'all are the best!!!

October 12, 2010 at 5:57 AM

Oh crap hell and shit... I really need a fucking jailbreak for a friend of mine he is iPhone 3G on 4.1 and MC model any help/suggestions? Help my ass!!! Thanks

October 12, 2010 at 6:00 AM

I try to JB my Iphone 3g, and neither Greenpoisi0n or Limera1n work. I get the phone into DFU and neither do what is needed. Greenpoisi0n doesn't register DFU and Limera1n doesn't go past the"In Dfu mode.....wait".

Help please!!

October 12, 2010 at 6:05 AM

I did it limera1n then greenpois0n it works just fine! How about the unlock???

October 12, 2010 at 6:07 AM

Ok so i have iphone 4g 4.0.2 do i need to do like a special firmware update or just update it through itunes? and is there an unlock for the iphone 4g 4.1? actually can i jailbreak it on 4.0.2?

October 12, 2010 at 6:08 AM

thanks! I have a iPod Touch 2G hopefully this will work.

October 12, 2010 at 6:14 AM

Well what the fuck is the point of the release now. Limera1n already killed you guys.

October 12, 2010 at 6:21 AM

Does anyone know when unlock will be available for 4.1, 05.14.02??? Any news about that? I'm desperate! Please help!

October 12, 2010 at 6:21 AM

LOL, there is no such thing as 3G MC Model

If you have a 3G, use redsn0w.

If you have a 3GS (<- Notice the S), use Greenpois0n

October 12, 2010 at 6:24 AM

Man i dont know whats going on but when i put my ipod into DFU mode, the greenpoison thing doesnt recognize it and it just says try again...

October 12, 2010 at 6:36 AM

So will this work on 3g? because limerain didnt work for me and im on 4.1

October 12, 2010 at 6:38 AM

is the unlock gonna come out separately?

October 12, 2010 at 6:56 AM

Greenpois0n RC3 worked fine for me. Ramdisk did it's thing, Loader was on the springboard, and got cydia to install from there.
Congrats guys.

October 12, 2010 at 6:57 AM

What the hell is up with all of the PC bias?! They do realize that there is a large amount of iphone users who don't bother with the headaches of a PC right?

October 12, 2010 at 7:18 AM

I now need to wait for iPod 2g but thanks

October 12, 2010 at 7:18 AM

man this would be so great if it could work with ipod touch 2g. Does anyone know if they will fix this soon so i can jailbreak my ipod touch 2g??!!!

October 12, 2010 at 7:21 AM

Can anyone help me? I have an iPod Touch 3g on the 4.1 (8 gigs) firmware and I'm trying to use Greenpois0n. I'm putting my iPod into DFU mode but it never goes successfully. Ive put my iPod into dfu mode before so i don't know what's the problem. Also after i finish ATTEMPTING to put it into dfu mode it crashes and takes about 5 minutes to reboot. It just says try again as if i did the dfu wrong. I'm positive I'm doing everything right. So what's the problem? Limera1n is not an option and is not supported for my iPod.

October 12, 2010 at 7:26 AM

i've no prob with the jailbreaking using greenpoison. works perfectly fine for me. but there's a slight prob which is 'install0us/install0us 3' cant be used nor installed in ios4.1.. is there any other apps or source that i could dl free apps?

October 12, 2010 at 7:28 AM

I’m trying to JB my 3gs but following the greenposi0n directions isn’t getting me past the initial screen. I even put my phone in DFW mode but it still says “try again.” Could be user error, but I’m a pretty good reader :) Any suggestions?

October 12, 2010 at 7:31 AM

no greenpoison there for iphone 3g? :(((,when?

October 12, 2010 at 7:35 AM

Neither of them worked for me, GP would not detect DFU, andI was definitely in it, and Limera1n left me hanging in recovery loop. After about 7 restores and retries on 2 pc's, I gave up.

October 12, 2010 at 7:37 AM

Neither greenpoison or limeire worked for me. I have a Mac, but I also have win7 in my bootcamp partition and virtualized too. I`ve tried using the virtualization and directly by bootcamp. I tried both methods, none worked.. I am caming back to my 4.0.1 and I`ll wait for mac osx vers.

October 12, 2010 at 7:42 AM

Hi I used limera1n on my iPhone 4 32gb on iOS 4.1. Seem to have worked ok, phone went funny when jailbreaking ie screen flashed on and off alot and very fast for about 10sec+. But I just left it to do it's thing. iPhone work as always. Cydia work and winterbard but can't add a new battery screen pic or slider which is a bugger. Fontswap works but just on some fonts not on mane screen tho. Will it be better to reset my iPhone an do it with greenpois0n?

October 12, 2010 at 7:42 AM

I have to say, I'm gravely dissapointed in the bugginess of both tools, and Redsn0w wasn't worth a flip either.
GP never detected DFU
Limera1n stuck in DFU and left me in recovery loop
Redsn0w hung up in downloading the jailbreak to phone

After about 8 hours lost, reading and following directions flawlessly, I gave up and went with Sn0wbreeze. It is the only one that has worked for me on the last two updates.

I troubleshot ALL of the following:
Tried 32 and 64-bit to see if that was it.
Made SURE I was really in DFU mode, yes I was.
Tried holding Home longer than usual just in case.
Made sure iTunes was upgraded, it is.

Unless anyone has a definite fix for these kinds of problems, I'm saving myself the headache and staying with Sn0wbreeze. I am disgusted after waiting this long for an unpatchable JB...

October 12, 2010 at 7:42 AM

there is little discernible difference between these two jailbreaks.
only use greenp0ison if the new software update breaks limera1n.

October 12, 2010 at 7:47 AM

Used Limera1n to jailbreak an iPod Touch (4.1) yesterday, and Greenpois0n to jailbreak an iPad (3.2.2) this evening.

Limera1n was a little easier it has to be said. It took me three attempts to syncrhonise my button pressing to enter DFU mode with Greenpois0n whereas Limera1n used realtime feedback rather than timers and I did it first time.

The first Greenpois0n reboot also scared the hell out of me with a page full of Linux-esque boot information, a complaint about a missing firmware and a delay that seemed to last forever. Was it supposed to do that? I can't find anyone else talking about it. Was that something to do with the ramdisk?

Everything eventually worked though (Cydia installed fine from both jailbreaks) so no harm done to anything other than my nerves.

Right, off to change my default passwords...

October 12, 2010 at 7:52 AM

Is there any carrier unlock for iPhone 4 iOS 4.1? I did save my SHSH's for 4.0.2 but for some reason, TinyUmbrella says that Cydia doesn't have them so I can't downgrade to iOS 4.0.2 where my carrier unlock worked.

So, could anyone help me please? Thanks in advance!

October 12, 2010 at 8:23 AM

October 12, 2010 at 8:26 AM

October 12, 2010 at 9:30 AM

Nice!! Worked great! Hello cydia!! And 3G FaceTime!!!!

October 12, 2010 at 9:35 AM

When I used limera1n on my iPhone 3GS 4.0.2 it didn't work.

I did a factory restore and upgraded to 4.1 then limera1n worked. Just make sure you don't upgrade to 4.1 with iTunes and use PwnageTool upgrade to you could protect your baseband.

October 12, 2010 at 9:40 AM

So what's the solution to jailbrake A iPhone3G that's running the newest 4.1? Does anyone know if there are any plans to update the jailbrakeme method for safari via one slide? If anyone has some info and can help me jailbrake my phone email me or add my msn it's rdanny321@hotmail.com thanks

October 12, 2010 at 9:54 AM

hi guys i cannot jailbreak my 3GS running 4.1 mc model with limera1n or green poison. i do all the steps correctly. first tried limera1n and it says it jailbreaks it but no cydia. when using greenpoison i only get stuck on white screen and it never flashes like its suppose to it also says jailbreak failed :(. what do i do. please help?

October 12, 2010 at 10:07 AM

as soon as i j/b my iphone i was able to install installous. its cydia.hackulo.us

October 12, 2010 at 10:10 AM

i was able to jailbreak my iphone 3G.. it was really simple
i just dont know if it was able to jailbreak it or not

October 12, 2010 at 10:11 AM

I have never complained and will not start now, but i can't help but point out the obvious. First, the Dev team did not want to release two exploits at once, but they did. Secondly, the exploit suppose to take advantage of a hardware issue, but we are told be the Dev team that Apple may patch it will 4.2. Last, the Dev team sat on this forever because they wanted to make sure it was perfectly tested, but it still was released with several bugs. Wow... Just wondering....

October 12, 2010 at 10:11 AM

srry meant to say that idk if it was meant to be jailbroken with 3g

October 12, 2010 at 10:12 AM

How sad doesn't work for the 2g =\\

October 12, 2010 at 10:17 AM

if you have an 8gb ipod touch then it will not work for you until they release the update for it, same thing happened to me

October 12, 2010 at 10:21 AM

ok can anybody help me?
neither jailbreak will work
ipod touch 3rd gen 4.1 os
limera1n wont install the cydia installer (limera1n)
and greenp0ison gets me stuck in recovery everytime.
please help meee

October 12, 2010 at 10:24 AM

I jailbroke 3 iPhone 3GS's with limera1n and had great results. The initial install of cydia was a little slow but after the complete upgrade it rebooted and ran perfect.
For some people having trouble installing installous, first install SBSettings in the Bigboss source. After that it should install fine.

October 12, 2010 at 10:24 AM

dev team used the limera1n exploit. they're saving shatter for a later time.

October 12, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Does itunes must be installed?

October 12, 2010 at 10:30 AM

that`s exaclty what happen to me! Maybe I have to install itunes in my windows too, but I am using it in my OSX, so... I don`t want to do that... I`ll wait for mac vers

October 12, 2010 at 10:30 AM

On limera1n cydia might take a minute to show up. You can also reboot and it will appear. I did this with one of my 3GS. It will not work on an old bootrom. This is why iPhone 3G will not jailbreak

October 12, 2010 at 10:41 AM

so what this looks like to me, is that the greenpois0n people pretty much just waited for limera1n to come out, so they could use the same exploit and slap their name on it.


October 12, 2010 at 10:54 AM

For the people who are whining shut the hell up. This only works with iPhone 3GS/4 and iPod touch 3g/4g. For the idiots use redsn0w 0.9.6b1 to jailbreak your iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2g (mc model tethered) greenpois0n won't work. Greenpois0n is free but all these retarded people continue to whine about it like they bought it and are mad because they can't return it because It didn't work. Oh and greenpois0n can't be patched it uses a bootrom exploit and the untether part uses a userland so by 4.2 this will work but not the untether part probably unless @comex already has some more exploits that will work.

October 12, 2010 at 11:00 AM

I tried the jailbreak but I keep getting that my usb is not connect and it keep asking me to reboot my device

October 12, 2010 at 11:06 AM

Hello i have an ipod touch 3h 4.1 operating system neither limera1n or grenpoi0n successfully installed cydia to my ipod is it becasue i have an mc model or what please help!

October 12, 2010 at 11:08 AM

No it does not work for iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1. Stop asking!!!

Use redsnow 0.9.6b1 for our jailbreak on windows or mac

October 12, 2010 at 11:15 AM

So Greenpois0n was a waste of time all along. They "were working really hard" to get it bug free for ages, then someone else trumps them and they can re-write an alternative JB next day?
All they were doing was stirring up a shit storm to get themselves known. Thing is, it's a hard world out there guys. If you sit on your hands winding up your audience long enough then someone will beat you to it and make you look the fool.
Funny how you needed all these weeks of testing time, then when trumped by someone else, you can suddenly release a half baked jailbreak next day.
Lesson learned?
OK, I didn't write a JB myself. But then I have a real job and real responsibilities. I don't get to sit on my arse getting the state to pay for me to fuck around on my PC all day.
So now I have a JB Ipod 3G (thanks to limera1n) complete with Cydia. Anyone care to tell me what's so great about that?
Anything (worthwhile) I can do with it now that I couldn't do with the Apple app store? Ok, probably some stuff is free that I could have paid for from the proper app store, but it's money that makes the world go round - i guess you kids haven't learnt that yet.

October 12, 2010 at 11:15 AM

limerain will install a imerain app to the springboard and once u poen that "app" click install cydia and reboot then delete the limerain app and voila! P.S. i did it to a touch 3gen and touch 4gen.

October 12, 2010 at 11:19 AM

limerain works email gismoseal@yahoo.com for help for 3g and 4g touches.

October 12, 2010 at 11:25 AM

and the help i have is FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS click make it rain, and pay attention. once completed it will work! i remember jailbreaking the 2g with having to put it in dfu mode create custom firmware and force its install! now you dont reinstall the firmware you just plug it in push a few buttons and .......done!!!!no need for hours of research! by the time i originally finished i had to write a HEFTY tutorial on how to do it!

October 12, 2010 at 11:31 AM


There are independent developers who create apps that 1) Aren't exactly what Apple wants in their App Store, and, 2) Take far less time to release than something on an app store.

Also, the Chronic Dev Team did not spend time stirring shit up. They made a jailbreak using the SHAtter exploit, and spent most of their time perfecting it and making it easy to install. They were trumped by someone who used an unstable exploit (that was NOT the SHAtter exploit), and as such, they had to redo THE ENTIRE Greenpois0n to implement this new exploit.

Why? Because if they used the SHAtter exploit, that means there will be two different exploits that Apple can reverse engineer and patch when they release their 5G iPhone and iPod models. So, by taking the time to incorporate limera1n's exploit, SHAtter still is not publicly available, and thus, cannot be patched by Apple.

October 12, 2010 at 11:34 AM

to me it looks like SHatter exploit was a big hype because it only jailbroke 4th gen idevices that had the A4 processor in it. They were making a huge deal about the release day being on 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 wtf what a big hype. Then limera1n comes out of no where and jailbreaks my iphone 4 with 4.1 and also jailbreaks older idevices. and now greenpois0n to use the same exploit.. geohot raped the chronic dev team!

October 12, 2010 at 11:37 AM

Thanks for everything but unlock please for iPhone 4. I need to use my iPhone what about unlock unlock UNLOCK please

October 12, 2010 at 11:52 AM

So Chronic Dev Team concentrate on a quality product with all the "testing" etc. Right up until someone else releases something, then they throw out any old shit at a moments notice to appear to keep up with the game.

Ref Cydia vs App store: Like what?
I need convincing of the advantages right now, as all I see so far is free crap vs piad for stuff of sometimes* reasonable quality.
*At least you can see reviews at app store to sort the wheat from the chaff.

October 12, 2010 at 11:55 AM

Ive tried this JB on my iTouch sooo many times...My Finger actually hurts from Flippin off Limera1n and greenpois0n -____________-

October 12, 2010 at 12:05 PM

Haven't tried with the Greenpois0n yet, but limera1n will not JB through Parallels. Can't attest to VMware.

October 12, 2010 at 12:05 PM

Jim you can still use app store anyway, it's about freedom to use a device you own when it comes to jailbrake, the fact you couldnt even use your own mp3 as a ringtone without a farce is quite frankly a insult not to mention many other small things that make a apple run iPhone very out of date and quite shocking it sold so well

October 12, 2010 at 12:14 PM

Cant the CrDVTM just reverse engineer apples patch and patch what apple patched? I mean I'm no programmer but I'm sure that CrDvTm can do this all inside apples over 300MB file so this way ppl can just update with that CrDvTm Patched apple file and install the apples update and still be JB??

October 12, 2010 at 12:24 PM

LockInfo is a personal favorite of mine. There are also a few things, such as the ability to change the frequency your email is checked (I have mine set to 2 minutes, as opposed to the 15 minutes that is the lowest factory setting), and tweaks, such as making the icons and pages move vertically, making the dock scroll instead of having to scroll through pages, and a few other things. All of these make the iPod/iPhone a much nicer PDA. Also, CDT announced a 'release date' before geohot (creator of limera1n) did.

October 12, 2010 at 12:31 PM

Hey Dev Team, Geohot beat you once again!!!! Shame on you! You guys suck!!!!!!! Geohot Rocks!

October 12, 2010 at 12:34 PM

thats just it! it doesnt install limera1n. it says its done but it hasnt done anything. doesnt even show up after a reboot

Patiently Waiting
October 12, 2010 at 12:56 PM

This is CRAP. It was originally supposed to work on ALL i-devices. What about 3G users? Total wasteof time updating to 4.1. Should have stayed on 4.0 with current jailbreak. Now I've lost all the features I loved including MyWi which I paid for.

October 12, 2010 at 1:06 PM

I need tha unlock!!!!

October 12, 2010 at 1:17 PM

how did you jailbreak your ipod touch 3g i CANT and ive used both programs

October 12, 2010 at 1:25 PM

Jailbreak with greenpois0n up and running, although took a few tries with the timer window. Thought it didn't work when it said "Jailbreak complete" and all i saw on my iPhone 4 was code line after line...then finally, a reboot. went to "Installer" app, downloaded "Cydia" successfully, and I'm a go! Thanks Dev Team...don't listen to the haters!

October 12, 2010 at 1:28 PM

Clearly Jim the Jailbreak means nothing to you so why don't you click "Restore" and move on instead of belittling something that you don't get?

October 12, 2010 at 1:53 PM

I had the problem of the limera1n icon not installing when I jail broke my iPhone 3GS even all the prompts came and went. I was using vmware with windows 7 installed. I switched to parallels windows 7 with nothing else installed besides iTunes. And tried the jailbreak. And voilà success. The. Only problem I have now is that iTunes 10.0.2 will not sync music to my phone.

October 12, 2010 at 2:02 PM

So when can I unlock baseband 5.14.02 now that beta 4.2 for apple is released

October 12, 2010 at 2:13 PM

i think limera1n is easier to use than greenpois0n, though its just my opinion, though im on windows os.

greenpois0n < limera1n FTW!! ;)

October 12, 2010 at 2:16 PM

I can't seem to get either to work.
I foolishly installed limera1n when in was in Beta 2.
Thought it worked but when I tried installing apps, from the app trackr that I had on my 3gs, it didn't take. The icon is there and cydia as well but I can't put my old apptrakr apps on.
Then I tried GP. it said Jailbreak failed even tho I tried it twice. So Then I went to the latest version of Limera1n. it said successful, but I can't put my apps on.

Any help is appreciated.


October 12, 2010 at 2:33 PM

I made a video explaining Greenpois0n and what it does, how to use it etc, check it out and comment it if you have any questions and il respond ASAP.


October 12, 2010 at 2:34 PM

DO NOT USE THIS! Trust me i messed my ipod touch 4g right up. Im not a retard i mod the shit out of everything. If your going use anything, use limera1n. this shit sucks. it fucks your ipod right up dont use this shit.

October 12, 2010 at 2:39 PM

I would like to say I have tried limera1n and greenpois0n and have preferred greenpois0n a little better but I only used the limera1n beta so... Greenpois0n seems to work easier for me too. Thank you!

October 12, 2010 at 2:42 PM

I have version 4.1 and it worked for me just fine.

October 12, 2010 at 2:43 PM

Can anyone help... I've jailbroken my 3GS 4.1 with 05.11.07 firmware (new bootrom) using Limera1n and installed Cydia using a wifi connection. My 3GS has no signal and I can't make any or receive any calls etc - does this mean its locked? I have tried using ultrasn0w to unlock it but it fails?
Has anyone got any ideas? Thanks :)

October 12, 2010 at 2:47 PM

My problem is with limera1n I can get all sources but greenpois0n I can't what's the deal? Does anyone have any ideas

October 12, 2010 at 3:09 PM

Why does the GreenPois0n team bother releasing this anyway?
They should just keep their old exploit tools and release it after iOS 4.2.
limera1n can unlock 4.1 just fine, in fact it is better than GreenPois0n atm. It's a waste of their time and everyone's time to develop something buggly and let people shit on them.

October 12, 2010 at 3:18 PM

limera1n worked for my iphone 3gs on 4.1 but neither will work for my 3g ipod touch on 4.1... really annoying... i have done it a shyt load of times and restored and tried again and again and nothing seemd to work...

October 12, 2010 at 3:42 PM

hey i used greenpoison because it seemed to be easier and it worked perfect :)

October 12, 2010 at 3:42 PM

super sad...its all ive got and im aching for a JB

October 12, 2010 at 3:53 PM

I downloaded steffwiz but all sources aren't there

October 12, 2010 at 3:58 PM

I have an iPod touch 2 mc model when I use redsn0w to jailbreak my iPod doesn't reboot
I need help with that

October 12, 2010 at 4:01 PM

desn't work on me , i it doesn' put my phone into DTU mode..

i got iphne 3g 4.1

October 12, 2010 at 4:05 PM

So I did the greenp0ison jb on my iphone 4 (with iOS 4.1) with no problems at all, downloaded cydia and was pumped about havin all the good apps back again... Then it started crashing. Several times so far. It seems only to happen when I get a text using quickreply and the screen is locked. Thoughts?

October 12, 2010 at 4:28 PM


October 12, 2010 at 4:34 PM

I have become very confused on wether or not you can jailbreak an iPhone 3G running the latest software. Can you with greenp0ison or with anything else?

October 12, 2010 at 4:43 PM

hi guys,I'd used Limera1n to jb for the 1st time,so far so good,very stable,after I used the damn greenpoison,my iphone 4 crash for the 1st time,damn,stay away from gp!!my advice to all

October 12, 2010 at 5:03 PM

It keeps saying jailbreak failed... i tried three times on the iPhone 4 running on iOS 4.1. That was dissapointing...

October 12, 2010 at 5:05 PM

Greenpois0n worked flawless for me (I4, IOS 4.1 official). Cydia installed, works with no errors and very quick! Thanks GP!

October 12, 2010 at 5:30 PM

just jailbrokw my iPhone 4 on 4.1. smooth ride, took just a couple of minutes
