    Thread after thread after thread of when's?! and what's!? so I'm going to post this about all of the OFFICIAL from the horse's mouth answers we know, or dont know. MAYBE this will help cut down on the same threads over and over.




    Who/What is a reliable source of information for the jailbreak?





    When is the release date?

    (thanks to iJailbreakk for this twitter post link)






    What is the jailbreak called?
    While there has been no official name released at this time (Oct 4th) chronic dev team has been referring to it as greenpois0n (also known as the tool used for finding their latest exploit)





    If greenpois0n is not THE jailbreak itself, what is it?
    http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Greenpois0n





    Is "greenpois0n" tethered or untethered?









    I also see people talking about "SHAtter," what is this?
    SHAtter is the exploit being used to develop the jailbreak

    http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=SHAtter











    I have an ipod touch/iphone 1G, 2G, 3G(s) can I use greenpois0n?







    Do I need to save SHSH Blobs?







    How do I save my SHSH?

    this is quoted from http://www.iphonedownloadblog.com/2010/07/20/how-to-save-your-shsh-blob/
    PLEASE correct me on it if it is wrong, outdated, or there is a better method available.








    These are the top questions asked on a daily basis, if there are anymore questions about the jailbreak, please direct them here and I (not an official source) will answer them WITH a quote FROM an official source with where to find that answer if you want to confirm.
    If you are reading this and you know where to find an answer to a question from the dev team please post with it cited and I will add it to this post.

    The ONLY trusted sources have been answered above by chronic dev team and I will list ONLY those sources below so you can find them in one spot.

    (and at the moment i do realize there are some questions that have been asked a lot that i may have missed, i am still working on adding more answers, but in the meantime i thought it would be good to get this out)

    i hope this thread is accepted by the community and not seen as just another jailbreak thread, im trying to help centralize everything so maybe we can cut down on pointless annoying threads

    In the case of updates, please PM either the OP, or _JKK_. Thanks!

    Someone sticky this, there are only so many condescending comments I can make to people who don't search this information.

    Also appreciate how everything is based on what's been said rather than speculated.

    This was something i wanted to make sure was done. Almost every thread i see about the jailbreak is completely wrong, because they are pulling their information from uneducated sources, or are so hyped about the future release they are miss reading/ interpreting the information in front of their face. like the whole "days" deal with pod2g's twitter post.

    who cares if it is going to be out in November, not in October.
    At least we are getting something, not nothing.
    Guys, it's not like back in 1.1.4 where jailbreak was necessary.
    Unless you are trying to install bunch of cracked apps.
    They posted that the jailbreak will not be delayed to 4.2.
    Once 4.2 is out, people will start complaining about waiting for another jailbreak.

    BTW, isn't Jailbreak supposed to be illegal? (Not here in Japan).

    Nope, it's perfectly legal, just voids the warranty. However.. What you do is a different story...
