We have already heard from the iPhone Dev team about the upcoming version of GreenPois0n that will let users permanently jailbreak their iDevice thanks to the newly discovered SHAtter bootrom exploit. It now appears that this tool can do much more than just jailbreaking. In a recently posted tweet, Joshua Hill, also known as Posixninja in the jailbreakers’ community, has revealed that the upcoming Greenpoison tool should also permit hacktivation; that is the ability to skip the iTunes activation screen and use the phone with any SIM.
The process is incomplete without unlocking your iPhone though and as it has already been reported, the users who are on the latest 05.14.02 baseband shall not be able to unlock their iDevices until a newer version of Ultrasn0w is released. Now that is going to take some more time.
Update : The launch date is announced for 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 AM
