Jailbreak Battle

Geohot surprised everyone as his tool "Limera1n" now works with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, and the iPad, it was a real surprise especially that Greenpois0n was scheduled to be released today.

GeoHot jumped the gun requiring Greenpois0n to now be delayed because Chronic Dev Team & iPhone Dev Team don't want to burn a 2nd bootrom exploit.

From p0sixninja

we have 3 options, A) Not release greenpois0n, B) Burn a second bootrom expoit, or C) Break our ETA and implement geo's exploit

we'll probably go with option C, but i'm too pissed off to work on this tonight. i'm going to go get wasted

And from iPhone Dev Team blog post this morning...

The release of limera1n has (hopefully!) averted the burning of 2 bootrom holes at once (both his and SHAtter). Releasing SHAtter now would be a complete waste of a perfectly good bootrom hole in light of limera1n, and so it can be held until Apple closes limera1n’s hole. While there’s no guarantee that Apple won’t also close SHAtter by then, it provides a ray of hope for devices after Apple’s bootrom respin. Meanwhile, look for an alternate implementation of the limera1n exploit in greenpois0n (and possibly other tools), where it should undergo more testing too.
