Greenpois0n: A Toolkit to Exploit Vulnerabilities and Jailbreak iPhone 4, iPod Touch and iPad

What’s going on between iPhone hackers and Apple is a war of wit. While one is feverishly working at jailbreaking tools, the other is working diligently on patches. For the uninitiated caught in the crossfire, words like Redsn0w, PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze, Greenpois0n and Purplera1n may sound intimidating. Simply put, these are tools available to jailbreak (unlock the operating system of iDevices) iPhone and iPod Touch. Even as you read this, the Chronic Dev Team is busy giving final touches to its latest jailbreaking tool, Greenpois0n which can Jailbreak iOS 4.1. If you visit the website, you will be greeted by an apple skull (and nothing else). It’s unmistakably the Apple logo that has been disfigured, like something’s eating into it. Well, that makes the intentions evident. The Greenpois0n developer Posixninja wants it to allow end users to jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad while also enabling hackers to play with the iDevice at lower level.

Posixninja, however, is tight-lipped about the specifications and details of the Greenpois0n tool lest Apple finds a patch to it. But, from the official description, this is what we do know: “Greenpois0n inserts many new and powerful commands allowing you to do everything from accessing the AES engine to decrypt firmware keys, hook and call into existing iBoot (the Interactive BOOTmenu system) functions, read and write to blockdevices, including the filesystem (although filesystem is read only right now), and even set breakpoints within iBoot to dump registers and stack information during runtime”. Whoa! So, expect it to be a comprehensive tool, not just an exploit, to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 2G and iPad on the respective firmware of its release date. It will also be compatible with both Windows and Mac.

Different versions of GreenPois0n have also been lined up, all named after different poisons. Here are the available details:

  • GreenPois0n Cyanide: A cross-platform iBoot payload toolkit to help developers discover new vulnerabilities and design ‘super fast, low-level’ iBoot jailbreaks and exploit payloads, much like the way blackra1n/purplera1n works.
  • GreenPois0n Anthrax: A cross-platform iPhone ramdisk toolkit to help developers design ‘extremely stable and portable ramdisk jailbreaks,’ much like the same way quickpwn/redsn0w works.
  • GreenPois0n Dioxin: A cross-platform MobileDevice toolkit designed to help developers design ‘awesome user-level jailbreaks,’ much the same way spirit jailbreak works.
  • GreenPois0n Arsenic: A cross-platform custom firmware toolkit to help developers design jailbreaks to help preserve baseband and keep unlocks, much in the same way PwnageTool/Sn0wBreeze works.

The updated greenpois0n that would be coming out soon will use the SHAtter based exploit and will be able to Jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 2G and iPad running on iOS 4.1 firmware.
