Again delay…..The SHAtter exploit based tool was supposed to release today but the dramatical returns of GeoHot with his favulous jailbreaking tool limera1n Chronic Dev Team had to make a very tough decision.Greenpois0n.com has been updated with new Logo as well.
Chronic and iPhone Dev Team decided to hold greenpois0n SHAtter exploit until Apple fixes the hole for Limera1n exploit in the next firmware update.If the Chronic Dev Team were to release Greenpois0n today, it would be wasting a very important exploit (SHAtter). And they don’t want to let a perfectly good exploit waste away.
The Chronic Dev Team have posted an important update:
Thanks to the irresponsible antics of geohot, we will have to delay the release of greenpois0n (new ETA = as soon as possible), so that we have time to clean up his little mess and integrate the exploit he uses in limera1n into greenpois0n. This way, we can save SHAtter for future devices that may still be vulnerable to it.
We know that this is not what some people want to hear, but due to geohot needing to feed his ego (as usual) and revealing his limera1n exploit, we do not have any other responsible options.
Earlier iPhone Dev team posted an update on their blog:
The release of limera1n has (hopefully!) averted the burning of 2 bootrom holes at once (both his and SHAtter). Releasing SHAtter now would be a complete waste of a perfectly good bootroom hole in light of limera1n, and so it can be held until Apple closes limera1n’s hole. While there’s no guarantee that Apple won’t also close SHAtter by then, it provides a ray of hope for devices after Apple’s bootrom respin. Meanwhile, look for an alternate implementation of the limera1n exploit in greenpois0n (and possibly other tools), where it should undergo more testing too.
Notably, Limera1n is an untethered jailbreak Limera1n to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1, iPod touch on iOS 4.1 and iPad on iOS 3.2.2 on iOS 4.1.
