Finally after a lot wait and patience, the A5 jailbreak is HERE! As announced, Chronic Dev Team has just released the Absinthe tool to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Absinthe is untethered jailbreak and supports iOS 5.0 / iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4S and iOS 5.0.1 on iPad 2.
Until now there was no tool available to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Absinthe is the first jailbreak for A5 devices. Absinthe is a userland exploit and is good part is that it is untethered, so that user does not need to plug the device into the computer for reboot every time.
Future unlockers must run Absinthe on iPhone 4S running iOS 5, as the uncooked ultrasn0w unlock will work only with 1.0.11 baseband and not with the iOS 5.0.1 baseband. Unlucky users who have updated to iOS 5.0.1 have no option to downgrade to iOS 5 and will only be able to jailbreak.
- iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the “other” 5.0.1 (9A406)
- iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405)
You can download the Absinthe for Mac OS X from the link below. Windows for Absinthe is coming soon.
