Verizon iPhone can be jailbroken

When Verizon finally announced the iPhone, one looming question that couldn’t be answered until it was in the hands of the end user was, can it be jailbroken? Now that the handsets are finally being delivered, it appears we now have an answer.

Reports are coming in on Twitter, via Mygadgetnews.com, that users are able to use Greenpois0n to successfully jailbreak their devices. Musclenerd (a key developer in the jailbreak community) did state that the Verizon iPhone could be jailbroken on launch day since it is running iOS 4.2.6.

But, no one was exactly sure if the jailbreak would work since the phone is a CDMA model while the typical jailbreak model is a GSM based device. As more users get the phone into their hands, hopefully we will have a more definitive result, but for the time being, it looks like Greenpois0n could be your key to your jailbreak adventures.

When it comes to jailbreaking, end users should take caution as there is the possibility that it could brick your device. Verizon and Apple do not support jailbreaking and the users will be proceeding at their own risk.
