Joshua Hill (aka p0sixninja) has tweeted that a public iOS 4.1 jailbreak is imminent. The jailbreak, codenamed greenpois0n, is due for release on Sunday, October 10th, assuming there are no last minute stumbling blocks. This jailbreak leverages the SHAtter exploit developed by @pod2g, based on a crash discovered by Hill and is expected to work on newer iOS 4.1 devices, including the refreshed Apple TV, iPod touch 4G, and iPhone 4.
TUAW recently posted about a video created by the team showing the Apple TV jailbreak in action.
