SHAtter Delayed

They will not be using SHAtter in GreenPois0n or in other tools. Many are really happy that SHAtter is safe now and won't be utilized until Apple patches the limera1n loophole. Once this hole is plugged, likely in iOS 4.2 on iPad in November, another tool will be released based on SHAtter to jailbreak 4th or 5th gen iDevices.

As the limera1n jailbreak is still in beta. it is recommended not to use the beta and wait for a stable limera1n release or GreenPois0n.

Chornic Dev Team posted a new piece on their blog confirming they are not going to release another tool.

Thanks to the irresponsible antics of geohot, we will have to delay the release of greenpois0n (new ETA = as soon as possible), so that we have time to clean up his little mess and integrate the exploit he uses in limera1n into greenpois0n. This way, we can save SHAtter for future devices that may still be vulnerable to it.

We know that this is not what some people want to hear, but due to geohot needing to feed his ego (as usual) and revealing his limera1n exploit, we do not have any other responsible options.
