According to reports, a few lucky people have already started receiving their pre-ordered Verizon iPhones, which should officially be available to the rest of the US this coming Friday.

Ahead of the official Verizon launch date, the Chronic Dev Team has updated GreenPois0n to jailbreak iOS 4.2.6. We now have a proof that the jailbreak was successful as this picture was released earlier today…

Unless this picture was Photoshopped, it clearly shows it is indeed a Verizon iPhone (see the black bar connecting the antennas) running Cydia.

The newest version of the jailbreak, GreenPois0n RC5 b4 can be downloaded from our downloads section. The jailbreak guide remains the same.
