Joshua Hill, better known throughout the jailbreak community as Chronic-Dev Team member p0sixninja, has announced via Twitter that he's left the group. He hasn't offered any real reasons for his departure, aside from stating that he's "no longer associated" with the team, adding, "it was never about the money for me."
I was recently given the pleasure of being flown to Amsterdam for "The Hack In The Box Security Conference". Whilst there I met up with the "Chronic Dev Team" and basically hung out with them for a few days.
If you've been a frequent reader of this website for the last few months, you're likely aware that Apple is getting ready to release iOS 5, the next version of its mobile operating system. After months of uncertainty, it now seems that there is at least one team which is actively working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
Those who are planning to jailbreak their iPad 2's using Chronic Dev's GreenPois0n can be assured that a solution will be coming eventually, at least according a tweet posted by Joshua Hill, one of the developers that assured users that the team is still working on an iPad 2 jailbreak.
Joshua Hill of the Chronic Dev Team has confirmed today that since untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 is already out, they are now focusing on finishing the iPad 2 jailbreak which mostly likely will be packaged into an updated version of GreenPois0n.
Well some more bad news for early adaptors of iPad 2 who wants to jailbreak their shiny new device. After the confirmation of Limera1n being patched in iPad 2’s bootrom, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team has now confirmed that early testing of SHAtter shows that it has also been patched by Apple in iPad 2.
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.
iPhone developer Joshua Hill of the Chronic Dev Team has publicly confirmed that he is going to release an updated version of GreenPois0n with support for iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak as soon as he is done adding sandbox patches.
The well known iPhone developer and hacker Joshua Hill of the Chronic Dev Team has provided an ETA for the arrival of updated GreenPois0n jailbreak tool for the newly released iOS 4.2.1 firmware. For those of you who don’t know, GreenPois0n is based on Geohot’s Limera1n bootrom exploit which has already pwned all current iOS devices for life. The only problem is that it is a tethered jailbreak, which means you will have to boot it into a “jailbroken state” using a tool like Redsn0w on every reboot.
Chronic Dev Team have lived up to their promise! The source code for Limera1n-based GreenPois0n iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool is now available publicly for download. You can use the source code under the terms and conditions laid down by General Public License (GNU) to modify the tool to your own liking, or even improve it for the betterment of the jailbreaking community.
