Absinthe Jailbreak Tool To Jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 In Few Hours

by Ahmed Omar on January 20, 2012

Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is about to end now! The popular and expert iPhone hacker pod2g has recently announced that he, and the jailbreaking “Dream Team”, will release Absinthe jailbreak tool today to free your A5 devices. Absinthe jailbreak tool, developed by the Chronic Dev Team, will jailbreak your iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1.

Absinthe Jailbreak

Today is a Fun-day! Yes, that’s right. Earlier today, the iPhone Dev Team made a blog post informing users that Corona A5 untethered is nearly ready to be released and now comes pod2g’s new blog post which confirms that the necessary tool is READY to be released.

There are two tools on the horizon now. The Chronic Dev Team’s one which will be named “Absinthe”. The iPhone Dev Team will also release a command line tool which will help you to diagnose issues and repair any issues.

A tool named Absinthe and developped by the Chronic Dev Team will install the untether on your device. Also the iPhone Dev Team will release a CLI (command line) tool to help diagnose issues and repair things if it goes wrong.

What’s new about this jailbreak is that it’s the first time hacker use the backup and restore functions of iTunes to install software. So they’re warning, there might be some issues with it.

The iPhone Dev Team will release Redsn0w soon after Absinthe is released and most of bugs which will surely meet users are fixed.

Here’s what pod2g said about the release time:

I know the wait was long, too much long, but it’s about to end! You’d be able to free your iPhone in some hours.

    “Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is about to end now! The popular and expert iPhone hacker pod2g has recently announced that he, and the jailbreaking “Dream Team”, will release Absinthe jailbreak tool today to free your A5 devices.” That is rather misleading he in fact said “I know the wait was long, too much long, but it’s about to end! You’d be able to free your iPhone in some hours.” That is not to say it will be today though.

    Guys, should I install Absinthe or better wait for redsn0w? I catched that redsn0w won’t have any bags, but Ansinthe will.

  • Normelmagdael

    Can’t wait!!!

  • pervaiziqbal786

    yes thats a news but if its true

  • Appleb

    Cos emak 3ala emo

  • Derp

    Few hours doesn’t translate to 24 dumbass. If the devs said some/few, it’s coming out today. There is nothing else that could mislead you to believe it wouldn’t be today. That’s not to say they may delay it due to problems, but, I don’t think there will be any.

    W końcu!
    Wielkie dzięki drużyno!

  • ThatGuyOverThere

    There’s no problem with Siri at all, i0n1c said it went away after a reboot and it probably wasn’t the jailbreak at all.

  • Masterblaster

    anyone know what time its comin out at

  • t1mbone

    i’ll wait on redsn0w

  • Djongorodong

    jailbreak is online!!!

  • Skipo

    anyone know a time when its out

  • Cad27

    It’s said that absinthe MAY have bugs but of course the team is releasing in with no currently known bugs. Of course it’s more likely to find bugs when it’s publically released and that’s when reds now will implement the fixes (of any) needed. So you can use absinthe and worst come worst just rejailbreak if it’s necessary (usually not)

  • Chavez0893

    where did you jailbreak it at?

  • cdavis

    Okay. I am so confused, I need some direction. I want to buy an iphone 4s to use on T-mobile. As far as my options go, should I ONLY be buying an unlocked one, or would I be able to unlock one myself from ATT? I have done my research but I still can’t find a straight answer. With the release of the jailbreak, would it make unlocking an iphone any easier? Can anyone give me a good answer?

  • Anonymous

    Drink some Absinthe until Absinthe is released. Haha. :D

  • Tiffany

    Seems to work great just installed on my 4s no problems so far is winter board working with this or will it fuck up my phone?

  • Sjouwfeur

  • cdavis

    Thanks for the quick response! Damn. I guess I was just trying to save money by buying a used or refurbished one for AT&T, instead of an unlocked one. Maybe I’ll wait around a little bit to see what happens regarding an unlock before I make a move on the 4s.
