iPhone 4.1 Jailbreak GreenPois0n Causes Unlock Delays

We know that many of you are waiting avidly for the Chronic Dev Team who are busy developing the GreenPoisOn jailbreak, to announce the iOS 4.1 unlock tool for your iPhone. However it seems that there may be some disappointment out there today as it’s been announced that the team is currently only working on the jailbreak and not the unlock.

A report by Peter Chubb over on Product Reviews, sourced from Redmond Pie, tells us that if you’re one of those people waiting for the GreenPoisOn jailbreak for iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G you may be pleased as it appears the team working on the jailbreak are solely concentrating on that for the moment. This news was obtained from a tweet on Twitter from the Chronic Dev Team which said, “To those asking about unlock: At this time, only the jailbreak is being worked on, as it requires the team’s full attention.”

So it looks as though the jailbreak tool may be released soon, but at the expense of the carrier unlock. However those waiting for the carrier unlock should try to be patient as we have no doubt that it will also be coming, just not as soon as you may have hoped for. Waisybabu over on Redmond Pie points out that the two Dev Teams are both having to work flat out on the jailbreak but says that, “Good things come to those who wait!”, so we can only hope that’s correct.

    The team are doing their best to get the jailbreak out and all credit to them. We don't like the wait but we will need to be more patient. Your doing a great job guys cheers.

    This is nothing new…the jailbreak solutions, i.e. Blackra1n, spirit, pwnage, redsn0w, blah blah always come first. True, some have been able to activate and jailbreak simultaneously (pwnage for example) but most require a jailbreak first and then an untrasn0w unlock through cydia. I’m sure once the finalized greenpoisi0n or pwnage tool(which poisi0n will probably be first) the dev team will update ultrasn0w asap.

    New news today..it has been confirmed by @p0sixninja that greenpoisi0n will hacktivate the iPhone 4, and I would assume all other devices as well, this means there is no need for a seperate unlock program, once the phone is hacktivated just throw your t-mobile or whoever’s sim in and download the right cellular data editing package for your network from cydia.

    To simplify, don’t worry about an unlock, just pray for the jailbreak release asap!!!
