When there isn’t one cohesive overall goal for a post, it is always difficult to figure out how to start it, hence this introduction. This post is going to serve as being a “state of the union” kind of post, covering a few different topics/questions that have been common inquiries. I have one request if you are going to choose to comment on this post, PLEASE read it in its entirety, I get very tired of repeating that!! Also, please do not trust ANY blogs giving you vague predictions or claiming to have “inside info” no matter how benevolent and innocuous they appear, they are still generally purveyors of snake oil.
There are a few different things I’m going to try to cover in this post, while being concise for the attention span impaired
- iPad 2 Jailbreak status (*gasp*)
- 4.3.x support in greenpois0n
- greenpois0n merchandise / store.
As I’m sure many people have heard, Josh (posixninja) has recently been quoted saying the iPad 2 jailbreak is coming in “weeks”, I know I have been very publicly abrasive and non-commital on giving any kind of timeframe or comment on this matter, but at the behest of Josh (in conjunction with hisÂ need for a swift kick to the ass for motivation) we’re ALL going to hold him to that!!! I’m not going to get into extensive detail about this, but what I will say one of the missing puzzle pieces may have reared its head and cast a glance in our direction… take from that what you will.
NOTE: Â WE will hold him to that, please do NOT badger him with “is it done yet, when will it be ready?!?!, does it wear a slipcover from an elevator sandwich?”
4.3.x support in greenpois0n
In the past I have also said that 4.3.x support was on hold for greenpois0n to focus on iPad 2 jailbreak exclusively, our course has slightly changed (primary focus has never shifted from iPad 2 since it was released) it has now become possible to easily update and execute a workflow to enable RC6.2 (tentatively speaking… mmm #dirt) to be released “soon”…
greenpois0n merchandise / store front
Several people may have noticed I have been parading greenpois0n swag across my twitter/yfrog account for a while… (sorry about that!, just couldn’t keep it to myself…) We are still working out some important pieces of that puzzle. Several variables still need to be solved, i.e. what process we are going to use for the shirts; screen printing, heat press vinyl (not likely for large production… maybe limited edition / contest based stuff: stay tuned) There will be store front where some of the designs I have shown on my twitter/yfrog WILL be available. The ones that will probably be limited edition / presses will be the hoodies and the pois0ned white shirts, I will try to get a composite from Aaron next time I see him with what a green apple would look like, do not worry the red apple on the shirt is not set in stone!
Re: time frame, to be brutally honest this is the lowest on the priority totem pole (sorry something has to be) but we are still constantly working on it with remaining spare time, we’ll get this stuff to you as soon as we can!
