Pod2g has been letting his fingers do the talking again, this time updating his official blog to let his followers know the direction he is taking in regards to his eagerly anticipated iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. First of all some background incase any of our readers stumble upon this article by chance or have missed previous reports relating to this.
Chronic Dev Team - the folks behind the GreenPois0n jailbreaking tool which was used to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 - have announced and released an all new program which allows jailbreaking enthusiasts to send their iOS device crash reports straight to Chronic Dev Team instead of Apple. Why would you want to do this? Well, you’ll have to check the details after the jump!
According to Craig Fox, organizer of MyGreatFest, a London-based iPhone-related event, a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 might be released when once the event kicks off, on September 17th, if the new device is indeed released in August, as we reported yesterday.
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.
Some good news for new iPad 2 owners. Vincent, who has a good track record with what's happening around the iPhone jailbreak scene has just tweeted that Chronic Dev Team might have a surprise for all of us.
Chronic Dev Team has updated GreenPois0n to RC6.1 which incorporates fix by Comex for iBooks DRM error after jailbreaking iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on iOS 4.2.1 it with GreenPois0n RC5/6.
We informed you yesterday how Apple's iBooks app refused to open digital books loaded with DRM if the device was jailbroken. Comex discovered that the app was checking if the operating system allowed it to execute an unsigned binary, and if it did, the book wouldn't open. Now both PwnageTool 4.2 and Sn0wbreeze 2.2 have been updated to include a fix, but what if you're already jailbroken using Redsn0w 0.9.6, 0.9.7 or GreenPois0n? Now thanks to a simple fix available on Cydia, you can now easily fix iBooks from the device itself.
Chronic Dev Team has finally released GreenPois0n RC6 which brings full support for untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak on Apple TV 2G. Everything else remains the same. If you have already jailbroken your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with GreenPois0n RC5, there is no need to re-run the jailbreak.
FireCore team has just posted an update on the upcoming Seas0nPass for Windows which will jailbreak Apple TV 2G on iOS 4.2.1. Those of you who signed up for the beta program have already received test copies of Seas0nPass for Windows, public version will be released next week.
