So it has finally arrived.
Chronic Dev Team has just released GreenPois0n RC5 specifically made to jailbreak iDevices running iOS 4.2.1 or the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system. Right now though, RC5 is only available for Macs and some users are reporting bugs or problems with the installation - maybe because this version was rushed.
You can check out GreenPois0n for Mac via this link.
We'll update this post once the builds for Windows and Linux become available.
