We just shared the news of the release of the GreenPoisOn jailbreak tool for the Mac OS X. But that doesn’t really help, I mean every one find out the link to download a tool. Coming to the more important point, we are sharing the step by step guide on how to jailbreak your iOS device using the GreenPoisOn tool on the Mac OS X.
The steps, shouldn’t be a problem to follow as the tethered jailbreaks only require pressing a couple of keys and installing the software. The following steps will enable you jailbreak iOS 4.1 based devices [excluding Apple TV and iPod Touch 2G for now].
1. Download the GreenPoisOn jailbreak tool for Mac OS X.
2. Hook your iPhone 4 or 3GS to your Mac. Once connected, you can hit jailbreak.
3. The remaining steps are easy and all you have to do is follow the instructions on your screen. Just for the sake of clarity we will mention further steps from here on:
Press and hold the sleep button for three seconds. Continue to hold the same and also hold the home button for an added 10 seconds.
After ten seconds release the sleep button only and continue holding the home for another 10 seconds.
4. This would activate the DFU mode and initiate the jailbreak. Wait for this to get over.
That should jailbreak your iOS 4.1 device jailbroken without any issues. And we hope it helps our dear Mac users out.
