By Cody Lee on Nov 27, 2011

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… Read More

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.

GreenPois0n RC 6.1 Released to Remedy iBooks Problems

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 18, 2011

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

Jailbreak iPhone iOS 4.2.1

By Sébastien Page on Feb 7, 2011

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 4.2.1Read More
