Instead of releasing a tethered version (like Redsn0w 0.9.6) of GreenPois0n for iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak, members of Chronic Dev have decided to work on their own untethered solution for iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak, confirms Joshua Hill, one of the members of the team.
p0sixninja: A lot of people are saying another tethered jailbreak is pointless, I agree. Focusing on getting untethered before release
When asked if it is the same exploit as the one Comex has been working on, and whether or not it will require SHSH blobs for 4.2b3 like Redsn0w 0.9.7. Joshua said that they are working on their own untethered exploit, and that it will not require SHHS blobs for 4.2b3.
tahu363: @p0sixninja I assume you are talking about Greenpois0n? Are you implementing Musclenerd’s untether or do you have your own?
p0sixninja: @tahu363 we’re implementing our own
Capsfanchad: @p0sixninja I’m assuming "your own" will require 4.2b3 shsh? And thanks for your guys work!
p0sixninja: @Capsfanchad lol no
