The administrator of The iPhone Wiki and creator of blacksn0w has just confirmed that the developers of SHAtter, the exploit that will be used in Chronic Dev Team’s greenpois0n, will not wait for iOS 4.2, and will soon be releasing a jailbreak. SHAtter claims to “pwn4life” every current iOS device, so Apple will never be able to patch the exploit with a software update.
They won’t wait for iOS 4.2 to release SHAtter. iOS 4.1 will be jailbroken soon.
- We have not yet announced if this is tethered or untethered
- We have not yet announced details about the exploit
- Anything you read saying it is one of the above in definite terms is just speculation, again, we have not given official word about the tether status or any details regarding the exploit used.

Remember: don’t download any jailbreak tools before they have been officially released, there is a nasty trojan going around.
