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.
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.
Nearly 12 months after the original iPad went on sale, Apple announced its successor, the iPad 2, yesterday in an event held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
GreenPois0n took weeks upon weeks upon weeks of development and hard work from the Chronic Dev Team. The SHAtter exploit based tool was supposed to release today, but after the release of George Hotz’ Limera1n (which is based on a new exploit; pwns all iOS 4.1 devices), Chronic Dev Team had to make a very tough decision.
The SHAtter exploit based GreenPois0n tool is all set to arrive on October 10. But unfortunately, it will only jailbreak the fourth-generation devices like the iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 4G and the Apple TV 2G. This limitation is because of the nature of how the low level bootrom exploit SHAtter works.
iOS 4.1 Jailbreak news time! We have a lil’ update for all you guys anxiously waiting for SHAtter based GreenPois0n tool. Chronic Dev Team hacker p0sixninja, one of the hackers who are working on GreenPois0n jailbreak with SHAtter exploit, has tweeted that the tool is not coming out tomorrow or today or any fixed date for now.
With the low-level SHAtter exploit scheduled to pwn all iOS devices for life soon, it wouldn't be wrong to say that the iOS 4.1 jailbreak will go down in history as one of the most anticipated jailbreak tool releases ever. And it is now “seems” only a matter of days, not weeks, till GreenPois0n tool is released.
After showing off the first demo of SHAtter exploit in action, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev-Team has confirmed today that this new exploit which was found by pod2g, a former team member of the Chronic Dev-Team will also work on the new Apple TV 2010. Since Apple TV also runs on iOS 4.1 (official download link), it will be interesting to see what kind of “magical” stuff can jailbreaking community achieve here.
The iPhone Dev-Team has finally shown off a video demo of iOS 4.1 jailbreak on the newly released iPod touch 4G by loading SHAtter exploit in PwnageTool (video after the break). This test version of PwnageTool however is currently for internal testing only. But it will be released later for iPhone 4 users so that they can preserve their old baseband in future for carrier unlock by restoring to the custom firmware file.
