Advertisements

As you know Chronic Dev team released the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1, you can Download Greenposi0n RC5 to Jailbreak iOS 4.2.1. This version of Greenpois0n is as simple as GeoHotz BlackRa1n but for the moment it is available for Mac only. Following are the instructions to jailbreak your iPhone 4 and 3GS already running on stock iOS 4.2.1

Requirements :

Warning :

  • iPhone unlockers are advised to stay away and wait for pwnage tool release.
  • If you are already running on tethered jailbreak then restore to fresh iOS update and follow the procedure.

Instructions :

1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac, launch Greenpois0n and click the Jailbreak button.

2. Now follow the instructions given by greenpois0n to put your iPhone in DFU mode.

  • Click the Power button
  • While pressing the power button, also click the Home button
  • Release the power button and continue to click Home

3. If every thing goes well, in seconds the program will run the jailbreak and you’ll end up with a new application on the springboard, named Loader.

Have Something To Say ?

    Worked perfect on my iPhone 4

    After trying over and over to get passed the issue below (IPAD):
    “Unable to find fs_mount
    Unable to find fs_unmount
    Unable to find fs_load_file
    Greenpois0n initialized

    Kind of solved it.

    The secret is to keep holding the home button (even after entering DFU) until the mount error appears. After that, let the button go and wait… The Greenpois0n will search again, find the fs_mount and voilá!

    Hope it helps.

    Here it work after many research ….

    First I use Green…Rc5 with Ipad 4.2 already Jealbreak Thethered and It works …5 min to do it. Now Ipad is Untethered.Why ..see the last lines

    Second I try on my 3Gs 4.1
    First step: Upgrade to 4.2 via Itunes (Greenp.RC5 not work with 4.1)
    Error 15xx stay but OK
    Second step Jailbreak 4.2 with Redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc8 with original file from 4.2(apple).
    Run this progr.TWO TIMEs : One Tether with Cydia -One Just tether
    Third step from Iphone Tether,
    SHUT DOWN with the red Slide to power Off.

    Four step : Run greenpoison RC5 and if you see the sentences at the begin.. unable to mount…. don’t worry that’s ok

    Five step… Ultrasnow in Cydia.

    The reason is that Greenp.. RC5 need absolutly that your phone is COMPLETE SHUT OFF!!!! before to run this program.

    Good Luck

    Worked fine on (already jailbroken *tethered with redsnow*) iPhone 4 on 4.2.1. No restore or anything. Just enter DFU and click Jailbreak!. Be patient. Worked for me.

    Greenpois0n completes, but phones just reboots and there’s no loader icon!

    This happened over and over with me. First with RC1, GP would say ‘complete’, but nothing would have worked. With RC2, instead of saying ‘complete’, it said ‘Failed’. I managed to get it to finally work by doing this;

    1. Connect iphone to computer. Turn it off in usual way and close iTunes.
    2. Open “terminal”, type SUDO, open Greenpois0n as “Show package contents”, go MacOS folder & drag greenpois0n to terminal & hit enter. This will show some logs and will open the Greenpois0n program.
    3. Follow the GP instructions as normal. I kept holding the home button at the final stage until GP finally said complete. This may be overkill, but it seemed to work. As GP is running, you’ll see lots of logs appearing in the terminal window.
    4. The screen on the iPhone will go white temporarily, the go lack and lots of logs will appear.
    5. It will reboot a couple of times, with the animated GP logo.
    6. Success!

    Hope this helps anyone who was having the same issues I was.

    Cheers

    Install Cydia manually using Redsnow if Loader failed to do it for you

  15. Nousefor February 4, 2011 Reply

    iPad : ok
    Atv2 : no way
    iPhone 3GS : get to the pointer where loader is installed but, once launched, cydia installation is not present and loader page is empty. Tried to install cydia with redsn0w as i did for the iPad but didn’t work

    Im gettin this same error, ahhhhhhh!!!!! any1 found a fix?

  17. NoUseFor February 4, 2011 Reply

    It worked fine on iPad.

    Look at next article about Greenpois0n problems…

    I had to use the one with SUDO and install Cydia through Redsn0w..i used 0.9.7b6

    Still no luck with ATV2….

    I’m about to try it on my 3gs…

    Same error here on 3GS on 4.2.1

    Just hangs after

    Unable to find fs_mount
    Unable to find fs_unmount
    Unable to find fs_load_file
    Greenpois0n initialized”

    This bites… It says after a few moments it will install, but no go, nothing happens and if you reboot you are back to the standard firmware with no installer.

    Tried three different downloads to be sure it wasn’t a bad DL

    Anyone know what’s the deal?

    same here. no loader app :-(

  20. nate February 4, 2011 Reply

    i think the problem is it needs to connect to http://www.greenpoi0n.com and their servers have crashed. keep trying or wait a few days till the demand dies down.

  21. Ryan k February 4, 2011 Reply

    Same here. A little bit confused. Is it work for iPad?

  22. Denice February 4, 2011 Reply

    i just tried twice and there’s no ‘Loader’ app

  23. NoUseFor February 4, 2011 Reply

    STAY AWAY!

  24. ulim February 4, 2011 Reply

    tried it with a unlocked iphone4 that I bought in Canada. Didn´t work, no Loader app. But no harm also.

    @iAchmed: Just keep trying. It took me 17 tries and 2 restores to get past it. Or if you’re not into that…wait a while.

  28. Corban February 4, 2011 Reply

    I get the same error. I have tried a few times. Using OSX version. When the windows version is available I will see if that works.

  29. 81fr! February 4, 2011 Reply

    Redo. Keep pressing Home button till you see the Complete button. I did it the second time and it works :)

  30. xcsnine February 4, 2011 Reply

    From a tweet from @iSurenix , if you continue holding the home button after entering DFU mode it should continue. I had the same issue and continued holding the home button until the text appeared and it seemed to be the trick. Could have been circumstantial though.

    Ehh!?!
