A few hours ago, Chronic DevTeam released Greenpois0n RC5 which allows us to apply an untethered jailbreak to our iOS devices running iOS 4.2.1 ( and iOS 4.1.1 ). The software was pretty buggy, so a couple of hours later they released a new update, RC5_2, which should fix all the issues but there’s one thing missing: the custom animated bootlogo. In this tutorial we’re going to show you how to enabled it.
NOTE: To apply our own custom animated bootlogos we will need an additional Cydia application which is not available at the moment. We will keep you informed. Stay tuned…
1. Jailbreak iOS 4.2.1
3. SSH into your device, browse to /usr/bin/ and copy the file
NOTE: To SSH, we’re using Transmit. But the most popular (and free) SFTP clients are Cyberduck (Mac) and WinSCP (Windows)
4. Change the permissions of the file to 755
