Just as the Verizon iPhone 4 has begun reaching people who pre-ordered it, the Chronic Dev Team has released a fresh update to Greenpois0n, their jailbreaking tool. The update makes it possible for anyone with iOS 4.2.6 (the version currently powering the Verizon iPhone) to jailbreak their phone.
There have been some rumors of Apple releasing iOS 4.3 in the coming weeks, which could break the jailbreak method used by Greenpois0n. As of right now, though, it’s open season.
BlogsDNA has step-by-step instructions for how to perform the jailbreak with Greenpois0n. It should go without saying, but as is the case with any hack, perform it at your own risk.
If you do decide to take a crack at jailbreaking your phone, let us know how it goes. Leave a comment here, or send us an e-mail at geektips <at> pcworld <dot> com.
