Folks, we just got one step closer to an official release of the iOS 4.1 jailbreak promised by the Chronic Dev Team thanks to the SHAtter exploit discovered by pod2g.

In a video posted on their blog today, the Dev Team showed off an iPod Touch 4G jailbroken with PwnageTool. The Dev Team was able to use the SHAtter exploit to install a custom firmware on the iPod Touch 4G, and was successful in getting the basics covered, such as Cydia, customized preferences, root access, etc…

Although PwnageTool was a useful first test of a full iPod 4G jailbreak via SHAtter, it’s really overkill compared to the faster tools being developed. Its main use in PwnageTool will be for those with iPhone4’s, to allow updates while preserving the baseband and ultrasn0w carrier unlock.

This sounds really reassuring. I believe we should see GreenPois0n and PwnageTool released in the next couple of weeks. I know I will be using PwnageTool as I need to preserve my baseband so I can unlock my iPhone.

If you don’t need to unlock, I believe GreenPois0n will be a faster and easier tool to use to jailbreak your iPhone. At any rates, like the Dev Team said, this is another exciting time for iPhone users.

Did that get you excited?

    Just release the damn thing already. They said a couple of weeks ago that it would be released in a couple of weeks. Guess we have to wait another couple of weeks. I’ll just release my own jailbreak. Were not smashing atoms.

  • qefa

    Excited but not too excited , third is my third week of having ipod touch 4th gen , i have wait too long and i’d rather died instead of waiting for greenpois0n

  • Yeah.. i bought an iphone4 3 weeks ago [for my g/f].. with hope for these guys going to work.
    So im selling it today. Thanks Devteam! atleast android developers are a lil bit more .. revealing?
    I dont know, but atleast they make good on their word, and deliver.

    Who knows the right words for it, but disappointment for sure.
    god knows you guys will release it the next day after the phone actually sales,
    but t’ahwell. Will $200 donation make this happen any faster? if so, leave links.

  • wow, bellw me down

  • NT

    I am completely new to JB and hence have never done it… I am patiently awaiting the release of the 4.1 JB so I can enjoy some of these great apps available to those who JB. I understand these things take time, why does everyone give so much crap to the developers for this… Geez?!! It will come out and it will be great, end of story… That being said, I learned that nothing is ever free and I would like to know where and who ti donate to for this great product that will be released soon??
