FAQ SHAtter and greenpoison
I thought I would start this thread as our '1 stop shop' to find information on about the new JB.
what i know:
10:10 am GMT 10/10/10 when it will be public
SHAtter and greenpoison are /only/ possible on the fourth-gen devices: iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4G
SHAtter itself is tethered. comex came up with a way to untether it on 4.1/3.2.2
Maybe some of the smart dudes here can provide info:
is it for life?, if so, why?
will there be a way to 'de(un)-jailbreak' ie. restore to factory state. for example if JB isnt for you or you want to sell it and remove the JB.
what are the risks?

Yes, you can re jail your device if you decide that jailbreaking isn't for you. When the term "pwned for life" is used, that means the exploit itself cannot be removed with a software patch. It does not mean that your device will be jailbroken for life. This particular exploit requires Apple to make a change at the hardware level if they want to "fix" it, so devices already out there are "pwned for life".
How do you know this to be true?

There is lots of misinterpretation about the so called "jailbreak for life". Let's try and sort that out...
The SHATter exploit is a bootrom exploit. That means if it works on your device on Sunday when it is released, it will ALWAYS work. For life. Thats because the bootrom is hardware based and can't be updated
Because of this, you can in theory CHOOSE to jailbreak, restore, jailbreak, restore, as many times as you like.
But when you jailbreak using greenp0ison, or any other JB release in the future which can use the SHAtter exploit, it can be restored to factory just as easy as you can today.
The jailbreak is not for life. It is just that you will always have the option to restore and rejailbreak if you want via SHAtter. Also remember, greenp0ison may need replaced or updated with a new JB in the future depending on what mods Apple can make at the iOS level for 4.3 or 5.0 etc
When you restore, just like today, there will be no way to tell your device was ever jail broken if you follow the right process.
Remember, as soon as this is out and Apple get their hands on it, they will come up with a hardware revision for the bootrom on NEW devices to block it in the future. There is no telling how long it will take them to get it into production...
Basically, it's all good!
Hope that helps...

Thanks for the post... and detailed explanations from the others. Very much appreciated.
how bout apple tv 2? it shud work on it cus it runs the a4 rite?
Keep in mind that 10/10/10 10:10:10 GMT is an ETA which, by definition, is just an estimate. It's more likely to be released Sunday now that there is an official ETA, however, it is still possible for the release to be delayed.
