Apple iPhone 4 gets GreenPois0n iOS 4.1 jailbreak


Did you upgrade to iOS 4.1 only to realize that there was no jailbreak available for it? Do you miss all of those unauthorized apps that you had previously? Fret not, my iPhone-touting friends, because now you have at least two options for breaking free of those shackles. It was only yesterday that we caught wind of the Limera1n jailbreak solution, and now today, you get another shot at the steel bars with the GreenPois0n tool.

It’s a bit of a shame that you have to go through these unauthorized solutions to get at the apps and tweaks that you want, but that’s become the nature of the game for smartphones. Android devices have rooting and iDevices have jailbreaking. From what I understand, Symbian devices are a little more open to hackery though.

In any case, GreenPois0n is out in the wild and it’ll work on the iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and the iPod touch (3rd and 4th gens). The jailbreak tool only works with Windows and Linux right now, but they’ll surely have a Mac version soon.
