February 6, 2011 Leave a comment

Okay so this is going to be quite short.

GreenPois0n RC5 is the latest in the jailbreak tool line, it is capable of jailbreaking the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3rd and 4th gen, and iPad on 4.2.1. This is a full untethered Jailbreak, and I’m going to show you how to use it on Windows 7/vista.

Remember that there is no unlock tool available for iOS 4.2.1 as of yet. Unlockers should stay away from updating their iOS devices.

GreenPois0n Released for Windows!

February 6, 2011 Leave a comment

GreenPois0n for Windows was Released a few hours ago! for iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4th gen, iPad, iPhone 3GS

I downloaded this immediately after I heard the news from pod2g on twitter, so far I have Jailbroken 2 iDevices. (my 3GS an my friends iPod Touch 4th gen)

So far i have run into no bugs (So far) but im sure one will rear its ugly face, but until then I shall provide as much information on this as I can get a hold of.

Cheers to all Windows users! Freedom is here! Download here!

Linux user will still have to wait, sorry.



GreenPois0n Released for 4.2.1! [Update]

February 4, 2011 Leave a comment

It’s here! it’s finally here! The much-anticipated jailbreak of iOS 4.2.1!

I’m sure I can say for many how exited we all are, I personally have been waiting for this for quite some time now and now it’s finally here 🙂

now of course with a new jailbreak comes new problems

1.) currently only for Mac OS X….No Windows or Linux version yet (will update when they do though)

2.) over loading with people trying to download.

Some people are having trouble getting it to load, others arent getting a Cydia icon, its kinda mess right now but im sure it will all get worked out in the end.

And currently there website has been taken offline due to so much traffic going through there

if you go there now you can still download GreenPois0n for Mac, Linux and Windows but it will be RC4 not RC5 which is the one everyone wants right now. (Linux users will only get RC3..unsure sure why)

(Click to enlarge)

[Update] Okay, good news and bad news, bad news is that that you still cant get a download started cause of all the traffic is taking on right now, the good news is that if you hover your mouse over the download link and look (in Google chrome) at the bottom left corner of you browser is shows you the address of the link you are about to click (quite handy) and it says.


So it says that the file is there for win, just everyone is trying to get it that it wont download.


I will keep this post up to date as much as i can.

What are you’re thoughts on this? Will you update for this?

New Cydia Tweak “no Clock Status”

January 24, 2011 Leave a comment

well here is another territory grabber for ya. if you are by chance one of the people who needs space on the status bar for various reason then this tweak is probably for you.

what does this tweak do exactly? well it is pretty simple all it does is remove the Clock icon from the status bar, next to the battery icon.



So pretty much the only purpose this tweak serves is if you have an alarm clock set but you don’t want the icon. then you should install this…other then that theres…not much else to this one.

also if your interested in this tweak then you should also check out NoRotation tweak

This tweak can be found on Cydia


-iOS 4.x

-Jailbroken iDevice

-Price free

Another Cydia Add-on

January 23, 2011 Leave a comment

Well finally Saurik is starting to get into the update grove with another Cydia add-on.

(sorry for the bigness, it’s from my iPad, still waiting on official 4.2.1 JB for 3GS/iPad)

On the home page you will notice a new button “Themes”

When you push it you will be taken to a page that asks basically if you screen is a Retina Display or not

The HD (Retina) page

And the SD (Slandered Definition) page

Natually HD themes cost more then SD themes, about $0.99 more.

As the Tweet says things may be slow when trying to use this, on my iPad ModMyi doesn’t even refresh its hashes so dont be freaking out.


What would you like to see come to Cydia?

Cydia update!

January 20, 2011 2 comments

yes!! Saurik (Jay Freeman) finally updated Cydia just a tiny bit.

Saurik added a new feature to Cydia the last 24 hours


once you load up Cydia you will notice the new page right away

after tapping you will see a page asking you to register your Device with Cydia

after which if you have any purchases from the Cydia Store they will show up.

i think this is a really cool add-on update to Cydia, with this we can check our bought Packages, uninstall or delete them.

Saurik has said that there will be polishing done to Cydia in 2011

heres the start 🙂
