GreenPois0n Delayed, SHAtter is Safe Now

I just came from my school to continue posting about yesterday’s big surprise. Yes, Geohot made it and his tool “Limera1n” now works with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, and the iPad, it was a real surprise especially that Greenpois0n was scheduled to be released today.

Greenpois0n is now delayed because Chornic Dev Team & iPhone Dev Team have got a mind and can think (not as Geohot). They will try to do implementation of the limera1n exploit in greenpois0n and other tools as PwnageTool to preserve your baseband for Ultrasn0w unlockers.

Chronic Dev Team member p0sixninja posted on his Twitter account:

we have 3 options, A) Not release greenpois0n, B) Burn a second bootrom expoit, or C) Break our ETA and implement geo’s exploit

we’ll probably go with option C, but i’m too pissed off to work on this tonight. i’m going to go get wasted

iPhone Dev Team posted a new blog post this morning confirming that:

The release of limera1n has (hopefully!) averted the burning of 2 bootrom holes at once (both his and SHAtter). Releasing SHAtter now would be a complete waste of a perfectly good bootrom hole in light of limera1n, and so it can be held until Apple closes limera1n’s hole. While there’s no guarantee that Apple won’t also close SHAtter by then, it provides a ray of hope for devices after Apple’s bootrom respin. Meanwhile, look for an alternate implementation of the limera1n exploit in greenpois0n (and possibly other tools), where it should undergo more testing too.

Yes, they will not use SHAtter in GreenPois0n nor in other tools. I’m really happy that SHAtter is safe now and won’t be used until Apple patch Limera1n’s loophole. After that, another tool will be released based on SHAtter to jailbreak 4th generation & may be 5th generations devices. Apple WILL NOT catch this one.

Of course Limera1n is still in betas so it’s recommended not to use the betas and wait for stable Limera1n release or GreenPois0n. Limera1n has now 4 betas in one night and he is still working on fixing out these issues. We will keep you informed.

UPDATE 1: Chornic Dev Team posts a new blog post confirming that they are not releasing the tool. As I told you, they are still working on implementation of limera1n’s exploit to greenpois0n, here’s the full post:

Thanks to the irresponsible antics of geohot, we will have to delay the release of greenpois0n (new ETA = as soon as possible), so that we have time to clean up his little mess and integrate the exploit he uses in limera1n into greenpois0n. This way, we can save SHAtter for future devices that may still be vulnerable to it.

We know that this is not what some people want to hear, but due to geohot needing to feed his ego (as usual) and revealing his limera1n exploit, we do not have any other responsible options.
