Last week, iOS hacker and member of the Chronic Dev Team p0sixninja was quoted saying it was just a matter of weeks until the team releases an update to their jailbreak tool GreenPois0n, which was supposedly going to work with the iPad 2 as well.

It seems that p0sixninja spoke a little too fast, and got every jailbreaker out there a little too excited. In order to make things clearer, the team posted an update on their blog today. This update covers the iPad 2 jailbreak and support for iOS 4.3.x in GreenPois0n…

As a post aimed at encouraging people to stop asking questions about the iPad 2 jailbreak and GreenPois0n, it seems that if anything, this post just did the opposite. After reading the “State of the Chronic”, I was left asking myself the exact same questions as I was 20 minutes before: when? What?

About the iPad 2 jailbreak, and in regards to p0sixninja “few weeks” estimate for the jailbreak, the team was quoted saying:

WE will hold him to that, please do NOT badger him with “is it done yet, when will it be ready?!?!, does it wear a slipcover from an elevator sandwich?”

About the iOS 4.3.x support in GreenPois0n, the team was quoted saying:

it has now become possible to easily update and execute a workflow to enable RC6.2 (tentatively speaking… mmm #dirt) to be released “soon”…

How many weeks are considered to be a “few weeks”? How soon is soon? Two questions that didn’t get an answer in this update.

As usual, and by respect for the great work the Chronic Dev Team is doing, we ask you to refrain from asking them details or ETAs about their jailbreak. Not only they will not share any info with you, but they will be more annoyed than not by constantly being asked the same questions.

In the meantime, we’ll be patiently waiting for our iPad 2 jailbreak. We’ll keep you updated, so stay tuned.

    Few weeks = 2 months go figure.

    • Petey

      They only had a single jailbreak of their own so you obviously haven’t been jailbreaking long.

    • Aleks V

      Aren’t u a moron!lmao!

  • Reytube

    Maybe year

  • Posix tweeted me yesterday it will be in one week exactly he just wanted to leave room in case there were unseen problems last minute bugs.

    • Funked

      I find it hard to believe that p0sixninja personally tweeted you saying it would be 1 week exactly. Mind posting a screenshot of this message?

      On topic: I’m so excited for this jailbreak, finally my iPad 2 will have SBSettings, and I’m looking forward to enabling the multitasking gestures!

      • Tweet him yourself if you don’t believe me his family is from where my father in law is from. He’s a pretty straight shooter

      • Funkedisfucked

        Dear funked: you and your mouth need to shut up. 1st they “p0sixninja and other hackers” do have friends and it really is a small world for us “readers” do come across with them specially on the Internet regardless if it’s twitter or not you douch !!! And 2nd you don’t need the jailbreak to get the gestures, read info before your mouth opens again, spend $5 on Xcode Dow oaf it plug your iPad to it and woila! Gestures enabled. Incase if your a cheap bastard and can barely afford to use the iPad they shouldn’t let u jailbreak ur iPad because your probably one of those people who don’t donate to them.

  • cant wait!

  • You can enable multi gestures with windows without paying.

  • Is really too long waiting for The jailbreak.thanks to the hackers for the effort!keep up the great work.

    i second the motion that i truly believe too that chronic devt is the best team in jailbreaking, i like the greenpoison jailbreak thats why until now i dont update my iphone4 im still at 4.2.1 coz i really want to wait for it i know the team will come up with new greenpoison 4.3.3 jailbreak both for iphone4 and ipad2, i would like to thank them for the effort and time they spend to have a reliable greenpoison jailbreak!!!

    • Petey

      Unless they’re idiots anything they release for 4.3.3 will re-use what ionic already released. You don’t need more than one jailbreak per version.

    • Petey

      Read the comments on the blog. This is only going to be a 4.3 jailbreak for iPad 2, nothing past that (mine didn’t even come with 4.3 lol)

      How is redsn0w not relaible? For 4.3xx greenposion will reuse Ionic jailbreak. Same as redsn0w did. Better? I don’t think so. Same thing dif logo. Btw greenpois0n for 4.1 sucked majorly!!

  • Petey

    What the hell kind of update was that? A few hundred words saying nothing at all. Everything is MAYBE and PERHAPS and POSSIBLY and ONE DAY. Hell it sounds like they don’t even know what posixninja is actually doing – “one of the pieces MAY have reared its head” – so that means it may not have either. Wow thanks for the not-an-update. Seriously if you have nothing to say then don’t just say bullshit and don’t treat us like children and try to sell us tshirts instead. And please put away that theasaurus too.

    In the comments bile says THIS IS JUST FOR 4.3 which means it’s just the same jailbreak comex had months ago. Which means these guys are pure hype.

    Meh my iPad 2 didn’t even come with version 4.3 so I’ll just wait for comex/ionic/musclenerd/geohot to create the 4.3.1 iPad 2 jailbreak. lol at least now I know where I can MAYBE PERHAPS POSSIBLY ONE DAY buy a tshirt!

  • Ifonechip

    This is great news if it really happen.
    Apple must be loving this seeing the ipad2 has not been jailbroken. Wonder if this might happen with the iPhone 5 where as it can’t be jailbroken.

  • Manny

    You guy are the best i really need to jailbreak my iPad 2 I know you can release the new jailbreak soon we love you guys working hard for everyone thanks all we can do is wait

  • c0edx

    I’m still on 4.3 but forgot to save my 4.3 SHSH. Did not know you can save them if your device was not jailbroken.
