Developer of GreenPois0n – p0sixninja has just posted a long detailed post, clearing out the confusions that many of you may be having regarding GreenPois0n, Chronic Dev Team and their authenticity. According to him, they have have found an exploit in the latest iPhone 3.1.3 firmware which will be able to unlock and jailbreak iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), and iPod touch 3G untethered. All they are now waiting is for the iPad with iPhone 3.2 to hit shelves on April 3rd.
Last month, another iPhone hacker and developer named Sherif Hashim also found an exploit for the latest baseband. This exploit was sent to iPhone Dev-Team and they confirmed that it was working but didn’t give any ETA on when or if they are going to release a tool which is going to unlock iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 Baseband for iPhone 3G and 3GS. Maybe they don’t want to waste this all important exploit for this minor update and instead will use it when the major update such as iPhone 3.2 or iPhone 4.0 is released with the iPad and or next-gen iPhone 4G. George Hotz (aka geohot) is also said to have a similar exploit which he will use the next version of blacksn0w.
