GreenPois0n iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak Launch Shortly

The Chronic Dev team has announced that a new version of their Greenpois0n jailbreak software shall be released soon. This is expected to enable users of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (with new bootrom), iPod Touch 2G (MC model) and older and iPad to jailbreak their devices. But this release is not exactly groundbreaking considering that this is a tethered jailbreak tool – a similar solution already exists from the iPhone Dev team.

In any case, Joshua Hill from the Chronic Dev team has tweeted stating,

“Updated version of greenpois0n coming whenever I finish adding these new sandbox patches, sorry this has taken so long”

Like the publicly available version of RedSn0w, this new version of Greenpois0n too is expected to make use of the Limera1n exploit to jailbreak the iOS. Limera1n, as you may recall, is the bootrom exploit that was discovered by George Hotz, known widely as GeoHot. We will let you know when the tethered jailbreak solution from the Chronic Dev Team is released.

Google Voice Mobile 2.0 To Come With Multiple Account Support

Google Voice is officially still banned for iPhone users. However, it has been available for free for jailbroken iPhone users. Now rumor is in that a new updated version of GV Mobile is in the works and is to be released soon. It is apparently such a joy to use coming as it is with a lot of enhanced features. Here is what you can expect from GV Mobile 2.0 for jailbroken iPhones

  • Instant dialled call connectivity
  • Access to iPhone contacts from inside the app
  • Voicemail transcription viewer
  • Multiple Google voice account support

This apart, more features like call forwarding, do not disturb settings, automatic syncing could also be released soon. Sad that non-jailbroken iPhone users still cannot use this pretty tool.
