LimeRa1n Update Comes to Greenpois0n Jailbreak

The mobile world seems to be in quite a buzz at the mention of jailbreak solutions Greenpois0n and LimeRa1n, the LimeRa1n exploit being the latest jailbreak to come from famous modder Geohot of course.

Well according to an article over on Slash Gear by Chris Davis, the release of Geohot’s LimeRa1n has forced the iPhone dev Team to rethink Greenpoisn0n as to not waste a bootrom hole, and apparently have come up with a new version of the Greenpois0n jailbreak.

Although apparently the iPhone Dev Team haven’t yet made a post explaining what changes have been made with the Greenpois0n update, but hopefully that will come in the not too distant future.

Until such times as the guys explain everything it’s probably best to follow their instructions and backup your SHSH hashes, here’s what the iPhone Dev Team has to say on that…

“Because the “untethered” part of this jailbreak comes from a userland hack from @comex, you should still backup your SHSH hashes for 4.1. Do this by either letting Cydia keep them (“make my life easier”), or using Tiny Umbrella. This way you can always come back to an untethered, jailbreakable 4.1 on your devices after Apple has closed their 4.1 signing window (they’ll close the 4.1 window once they push out their next firmware version). If you fail to do this and ever need to restore to 4.1 again, you can still jailbreak but it will be a tethered JB (you’ll need to connect to your computer to finish the booting process, each and every time). And remember: you can backup your 4.1 SHSH hashes without even being at 4.1 or even being jailbroken, by using Tiny Umbrella.”

So who’s waiting on getting the Greenpois0n jailbreak so they can jailbreak their iPhone? Fell free to drop us a line or two letting us know.
