If you’re interested in iOS development or hacking, you should find this of particular interest. Key parts of the Greenpois0n jailbreak have been made open source under the GNU Public License by the iPhone Dev Team. This means that anyone can download, view, and modify the source code on their own. The released code is called ‘syringe’ and described as follows:

Syringe is the “Injector” module from GreenPois0n. It’s used for sending exploits to the device and booting the device out of recovery mode, and into a jailbroken state, whether to a ramdisk or to the main filesystem.

If you’re interested in poking around the Greenpois0n source, you can access it at github.

Greenpois0n is based on the same exploit used by the limera1n jailbreak.
