Here is some good news for jailbreakers and unlockers waiting for the GreenPoison jailbreak, which should now come out anytime soon. According to tweet by GreenPois0n developer P0sixninja, the new jailbreak tool will be able to hacktivate the iPhone.
This is particularly interesting to those of you who don’t have an official SIM card to activate the iPhone, which is a necessary step in being able to use the iPhone…
Activating is the process during which your iPhone “talks” to your carrier to make sure it is registered with the official carrier. If it’s not, your iPhone will not be activated and will then be useless. Just like the name suggests, hacktivating is a workaround that let’s you hack your iPhone to make it believe it’s been legitimately activated, and give you access to the iPhone spingboard.
Now the question is when will GreenPois0n be available? We’re all crossing our fingers hoping it will be sooner rather than later.
