Lol I know I’m late to the party but anyway….
Absinthe 2.0 is finally here! Pod2g and the Chronic Dev team have just released Absinthe 2.0 – iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV at the HITBSecConf 2012.
Absinthe 2.0 is the first jailbreak for the new iPad (3rd generation iPad).
Chronic Dev team write:
After copious amounts of work and many sleepless nights Absinthe 2.0 is finally here to jailbreak your device. This release has been a large collaborative effort between Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Teams (Jailbreak Dream Team). This jailbreak supports firmware 5.1.1 ONLY and is again one of the most easiest jailbreaks to use (so easy your grandma could do it ;D). As we’ve seen in the video earlier, Absinthe 2.0 – the user friendly jailbreak tool makes it very easy to jailbreak iOS devices.
Absinthe 2.0 supports the following iOS devices running on iOS 5.1.1:
- iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S
- iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3 (except for the $399 iPad 2 with the tweaked A5 chip as pod2g hasn’t been able to get hold of it to test and confirm it)
- iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
Absinthe 2.0 does not support Apple TV 3 currently. There is no mention of Apple TV 2, it looks like it was missed out.
Absinthe 2.0 is compatible with only iOS 5.1.1, so if you’re on iOS 5.1 or lower (Settings -> General -> About – Version), then you should update your iOS device to iOS 5.1.1 either using iTunes or using the OTA software update.
But if you depend on Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone, then you should wait for iPhone Dev team to release Redsn0w that adds support for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, which will allow you to create a custom iOS firmware file, which will allow you to update to iOS 5.1.1 while preserving the baseband.
Please don’t forget to take a backup of your iOS device to iCloud or to iTunes before jailbreaking.
You can go ahead and download Absinthe 2.0 from our downloads page.
