    A buddy of mine is trying to jailbreak his ViP. He's running 4.2.8.

    I'm already jailbroken but am running 4.2.7. Does anyone know what program he could use? He was able to JB with Greenpois0n but the Cydia store is missing and the launcher app doesn't work.

    Any help is appreciated!

    He should use Pwnage Tool to jailbreak 4.2.8. Rusty Shackleford made a great thread on how to do this here: ViPhone iOS 4.2.8 Jailbreak w/ Pwnage Tool 4.2 bundle (Mac)

    Depends also on if you are running a PC or a Mac.

    PC = Sn0wbreeze

    Mac = Pwnage tool 4.2 with 4.2.8 bundle (bundle has recently been pulled from download site, trying to find another source)

    Good luck.

    Untethered 4.2.8 Jailbreak Verizon CDMA iPhone4 for Mac Using Pwnage Tool | iPhoneBlogr.com download the 3 links from there (Main Page Article) and follow the instructions (of course this is if your on a Mac) Greenpoison is NOT compatible with 4.2.8 and you may want to do a stock restore before trying again. Or use Rusty's link for Windoze
