Chronic Dev Team Releases New Crash Recovery Software, Gives iOS 5 Jailbreak Update

We are now going on two months (five, if you were using developer betas) since Apple released iOS 5, and we still don’t have a viable jailbreak. There have been tethered and semi-tethered solutions available, but not an untethered jailbreak tool.

The worst part is that we haven’t known how close hackers have been to releasing anything, until tonight. The Chronic Dev Team has finally broken its silence regarding the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, and has revealed a new plan for finding future iOS exploits…

The Infamous GeoHot Partying with Jailbreak Royalty at Defcon

Justin Williams tweeted the above picture from p0sixninja’s hotel room last night. The group was enjoying a little R&R after a heavy day of hacking at this year’s Defcon convention. The annual event highlights new exploits and popular topics in the security community.
If you’ve been jailbreaking for a while, chances are you’ll recognize a few people in the picture above. Instantly identifiable are Saurik, the mastermind behind Cydia, and the original iPhone hacker GeoHot…

Chronic Dev Team Gives an Update on iPad 2 Jailbreak and GreenPois0n Support for iOS 4.3.X

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…

GreenPois0n RC 6.1 Released to Remedy iBooks Problems

As you may have heard, Apple is beginning to get petty with their fight against the jailbreak community.

The latest strategy taken on by Apple is to prevent you from reading the books you purchased on iBooks if it detects a jailbroken iPhone.

@Comex responded first with his hilariously named “Hunnypot” solution, and now the Chronic Dev team has followed suit with the release of GreenPois0n RC 6.1…

GreenPois0n Jailbreak Updated to RC6

The iPhone 4.2.1 jailbreak tool GreenPois0n has been updated to version RC6. This update brings support for the Apple TV and fixes emulators compatibility issues with GreenPois0n.

Since it came out last week, GreenPois0n has been updated several times, and can now also be used to jailbreak the Verizon iPhone. Although RedSn0w can also provide an untethered jailbreak, GreenPois0n still remains our recommended jailbreak for 4.2.1…

Jailbreak iPhone iOS 4.2.1

iOS 4.2.1 has been released for a while now, and up until this weekend, there wasn’t a good and practical jailbreak for it. Sure RedSn0w did the trick but since it was a tethered jailbreak, it wasn’t very convenient.

Then came RedSn0w untethered jailbreak, which was better than its predecessor, but still wasn’t satisfying to most of us. Finally the Chronic Dev Team updated GreenPois0n, which brings a safe and reliable untethered jailbreak for iPhone iOS 4.2.1…

GreenPois0n Updated to Jailbreak Verizon iPhone

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…
