Installing greenpois0n

For support in English, ask for help on the r/Jailbreak Discord Server.

greenpois0n is capable of jailbreaking every iOS device except the iPhone 3G on firmware versions 4.1, 4.2.1, and 4.2.6, as well as the iPad 1st Generation on version 3.2.2

greenpois0n is an untethered jailbreak meaning that it survives a reboot and can cause a permanent bootloop if something goes wrong. If you encounter a bootloop, restore your device via iTunes, Finder (macOS Catalina and newer) or FutureRestore
