Jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 Untethered With GreenPois0n Absinthe

by Ahmed Omar on January 20, 2012

Here it comes. Now you can finally jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. GreenPois0n Absinthe jailbreak tool has been released which works on iPad iOS 5.0.1 and iPhone 4S both iOS 5.0.1 and iOS 5. Below is the full guide on how to jailbreak iPhone 4S (5.0.1 – 5.0) or iPad 2 (5.0.1) untethered with the new tool.

Jailbreak iPhone 4S iPad 2 5.0.1 Untethered

There has been much work on this jailbreak. Since the release of iOS 5.0.1 3 months ago, hackers have been working hard to achieve the untethered jailbreak on all devices. Pod2g first released the untethered jailbreak for all A4 devices running iOS 5.0.1. Now, with the help of the dream team, pod2g could release his untethered jailbreak for A5 devices so that all devices are now jailbroken.

Follow the steps below which shows you how to use GreenPois0n Absinthe to jailbreak iPhone 4S on iOS 5 / 5.0.1 and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1.

Jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPad 2 5.0.1 / 5.0 Untethered


  • Download iTunes from here.
  • Download Greenpois0n Absinthe 0.2 [updated version] (Mac OS X - Windows – Linux [soon])
  • Download iPhone 4S 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) or 5.0.1 (9A406).
  • Download iPad 2 5.0.1 (9A405)


STEP 1: Backup your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and restore it using the iOS 5.0.1 or 5.0 IPSW file downloaded above.

STEP 2: Plug in your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 you want to jailbreak.

STEP 3: Now open GreenPois0n Absinthe and make sure that your device is detected then hit the jailbreak button as shown.

GreenPois0n Absinthe

STEP 4: Now you’ll see “Restoring in Progress”, you should wait for few minutes. Once done, get on your iPhone and you’ll find an icon named “Absinthe”, hit it and this will open greenpois0n.com which will install Cydia on your device replacing the Absinthe icon as shown.

Let us know if you need help.

NOTE: If the server is down and you get an Error establishing a database connection message then follow this guide to fix the problem.

  • Dr Obnxs

    You don’t need to restore, at least the app doesn’t request it. But the servers are overloaded so you may not be able to do the final step for a bit….

  • Orgil220

    hahaha, well said

  • Ugacaesar

    You do not need to download another ipsw or restore. Just download the jailbreak and click on jailbreak. Once you device reboots, just tap on the Absinthe app that was created and it will reboot again, turning that absinthe app into cydia.

    Thanks to everyone who helped get this jailbreak out to us.

  • Jzairick

    If you encounter the “Error Establishing a Database Connection” just go to Settings > VPN > Turn VPN ON and you should see your iPhone reboot and then you’re done!!

  • arshad1295

    guys im new to this whole jailbreaking thing i would just want to now something.Whats the difference between Greenpoison,Corona,Redsnow unthetered jailbreak? Should i get this one or wait for coronaA5 jailbreak?

  • fidget6

    im having the same problem

  • rahul

    I just want to take the time to say yes the A5 jailbreak is out for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. It is released for OSX at this present time, windows will come out when nikias gets home whoever he is :) Things to remember: Greenpois0n website may not load because of too much traffic and it may crash, same for cydia, if your favourite tweaks don’t install and you get errors its because too many people are trying to download it and again the servers will have too much traffic.

    Joshua Hill @p0sixninja
    the greenpois0n website has to load on the device in order for the jailbreak to be triggered :-

    planetbeing @planetbeing
    If the Absinthe webclip shows “Error establishing a database connection”, please go to Settings, turn on VPN and wait instead.

    Remember hundreds if not thousands of people are trying to jailbreak right now so be patient. :)

    are there any instructions on upgrading an ipad2 to 5.01. I’m currently JB on 4.3.3 and don’t want to screw things up. If I download the latest iTunes will this upgrade me to 5.01 or 5.1 ???

    I followed the link to the 5.01 restore, looks like it 732MB, is this right, how do we go about restoring it?


  • Sherifocean

    just activate the vpn in your iphone and it will work … but activate the vpn before u open the absinthe

    No prob downloading the latest iTunes. It will upgrade your device to 5.0.1

    Tried opening on three different Macs (OS X Lion, two on Snowleopard) and it wouldn’t work on any of them. Crashes immediately on Lion and one Snowleopard machine. The third machine wouldn’t recognize my iPhone. Any known problems or additional upgrades needed? It would be great for successful jailbreakers to share their settings.

  • Bananaman

    welp…i gotta say this was definitely a really weird week. all the posts about how the testing was being done, and how it was an amazing jailbreak, and how everything was so close and ready. but now it looks like this jailbreak does more harm than it’s worth. too much trouble for someone like me, who just wants to theme the phone and add some minor tweaks. i’m so bummed out. don’t get me wrong, i’m very grateful and these guys did a ton of work. but this “amazing” jailbreak isn’t so “amazing” after all. sigh…

    Worked Great! iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 wifi Jailbroken. First restored with the firmware file provided above and then connected iPad and ran jailbreak. Once Absinthe showed up on home screen clicked it but to an error message “database connecting cannot be established’. Went into settings>general>VPN>ON saw the jailbreak connection there and made sue everything was turned on. Restarted iPad and DONE! Cydia was there


    who cares if it’s out today, it doesnt even work

  • Badluck

    Didn’t work for me. Latest version (5.0.1) with unlocked phone. It recognizes the phone, but after starting it just stays with probably 1/8% of the progress line forever. Then, nothing more happens. If I close the program and start it again it restores with success, but the jailbreak still doesn’t work, it just happens the same again… any hints?

    anyone know if we HAVE to restore the phone (lose all my data) before using the jailbreak tool? why cant i just run the jailbreak if i’m already on 5.0.1 with all my data on it. i don’t want to put my 150 apps back on my device. i have them all arranged perfectly as is. why should i have to restore to something im already on?

  • ju

    drew i solved it, go to settings then general then reset then reset all settings.. worked for me

  • Will

    Hey man.. i bought my iPhone 4S in Canada, which was sold as “unlocked”. When i do this process, does my cellphone get “locked”?

  • Hans

    That code doesn’t work, use this one instead JX199266

  • Buddah1237

    You don’t follow simple directions. You try to use this jb on everything other than what it was designed for. You whine, groan, moan and bitch. Then you call the devs crooks, idiots, etc. bunch of losers, all of you. Stop trying to do GROWN folks stuff and stick to what you know (bit torrents).This is obviously too much for you. Thanks team for a great JB. No trouble if you follow directions. iPad2 user just jbed.

  • Gab92mx

  • Rainwxy18

    u dont respect other people’s work. u said it’s shit why u download and install it?

  • David crop

    You guys know what the ones waiting on a windows version fuck ipodg2 and fucking Muscel nerd and fucking the whole damn shit dream team. I’ve donated 150.00 to these guys and then I was slapped in the face with a windows version is not yet released????? Come on guys remember when podg2 released the unteathered iOS 5.0.1 for A4 devices they released the windows version right along with the mac version. Something is fishy here now your telling me that we are waiting on one guy to get home to release this windows version. Bullshit I’m beginning to think they don’t have a windows version come on guys how the fuck out of all these guys does only one person only hold the key to release the windows JB. People this is a way to say they don’t have a windows version

  • Venturo

    Wow. What a whiny, pathetic group of little bitches! You all are getting something awesome…for free…yet most of you are impatient little thankless brats that should shut the hell up and Be greatful for the hard work these gentleman have put into this. While you are “waiting” put your efforts into fighting SOPA, etc instead of impatient bitching. What? Are all of you 12 years old? Grow up! I am excited for the release too! But cmOn, the world isn’t going to end if you wait a few days.

  • Golden_eye

    works man…and it’s not a scam…

  • Olivier

    LOL same feelings

  • Venturo

    Bravo sir. Agree 100%. I swear we have a bunch of spoiled little kids on here!

  • Wnut

  • Davidcrop

    Dude fuck yourself free bitch you might be getting it free mother fucker I donated 150.00 you little broke ass fat motherfucker. Some people pay and donate you little broke ass bitch I bet your one of the leeching bitches that don’t pay for anything you little shit dick cock sucker. Lay off the fudge being packed up your big fat ass and quit guzzling up all that cum motherfucker you just might be able to drop a few pounds you big fat fucking faggot.

  • Charles

    can’t wait for windows version :D please… release it in these 2 days. And I’m really thankful to all the geniuses behind the ios 5 jailbreak

  • Chris

    What he said. If you don’t like waiting go to your local store and buy the jailbreak kit…Oh wait you can’t. Do you think these guys are just sitting around pulling their pud. These guys have put more time into this then you probably have put into anything in your entire life. Before you post you should think about about what you’re going to say, and then forget it, and just say “Thank you!! You guys are awesome!”.

    And before you say it I have a PC so I’m waiting to. Just doing t with class

    greenpoison website does not open when I hit the Absinthe app on iOS 5.0.1

  • Guest

    Do you have to restore the iphone with the 5.01 file that they provided if your iphone is already on 5.01?



  • http://www.facebook.com/alexlexiford Alex Ford

    Jesus, calm down! There is nothing “fishy” going on. This isn’t your average jailbreak, it’s probably the most hotly anticipated yet. The amount of traffic relating to the Absinthe release is enormous, I’d say that’s probably the reason the Windows version hasn’t been released yet. At any rate, it doesn’t require the attitude some of you twats are sporting. These lads have been working, so that this exploit could be possible, for months. You’re getting it for free.

    @David Crop, I doubt very much you donated anything, you’re blatantly about 9. Relax.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jzdbsfosh Jon Zobel

  • uranidiot

    your dumb, maybe if you weren’t retarded it would work for you

  • Venturo

    @ davidcrop and @ wnut…. Key word = donate. Nobody said you should or shouldn’t. It’s good you did/do. The point here is this: they are providing you something they work hard on, and I’m positive it’s as fast as they can. What I am saying is this: shit the fuck up and quit your bitching you whiny little bitches!

  • SauRon

    Congrats. For all A5 device owners , i am happy for u guys

    Is anyone having an issue with a disabled jailbreak button on OSX 10.7.2? Absinthe won’t recognize my 4s or P2 and yes the cables are plugged in because I just backed up the devices and closed itunes

  • MichaelJoseph75

    Thanks for all the hard work…i too have to wait for the windows version because my imac is crap and doesnt have that intel crud that absinthe needs to run…..You guys have a loyal fan here in NY! To all the losers who are hating on them…..what would you do if they charged you for their hard work? Maybe they should since you’re all a bunch of ingrates! STFU and let them do what they do best!

  • Rafael

    No need mate! You just need to be on 5.0.1! Doesn’t matter the way you got there!

  • guest

    or just go buy a apple computer! lmao

  • Guest

    Glad it’s out, but I wish Cydiahelp would not have suggested to upgrade to 5.0.1 before the release.

  • Who

    I think they have enough problems with the number of MAC users trying to use this…it makes sense to hold off on the windows and unix versions until things quiet down a little. After all it has been a long time coming and there are a lot of people who have been waiting.

  • Thanks, chronic dev

    Just because you donated doesnt mean everyone who didnt is automatically a faggot

  • Ryan

    I have the same problem on my iPad 2

  • ME

    Thanks so much, Dev Team! Now I haven’t downloaded this JB yet, and the only reason I’m reluctant to is because of the couple complaints I’ve seen about losing phone service. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so, have you all fixed it? I can’t be without cell phone service. Please answer this! Thanks guys!

    Do u hear all these childish people who can’t wait and can’t follow simple installation instructions. What a bunch of babies. I have never had one problem Installing a jailbreak and I update all the time and have to break again to keep up with updates. These guys worked fuckin hard to distribute this FOR FREE mind you and u all r bitching for nothing. I donated to them how many of u babies donated to the hard work of the dev team that busted ass day and night to get this out? If u want it so bad fuckin make a jailbreak yourself. Waa Waa babies!!!

    very sad cuz winodws version not out..

  • Zohaib

    people complain too much, you waited this long for a jailbreaks whats a few more hours or days. its no big deal just chill your shit for a while and calm down. these people dedicate their time and energy on this working tirelessly to make this product for us, and the best part their not charging, its a public service, so donating to help them out isn’t a bad thing. just because you donated 150 to these guys only means your helping them out, but don’t expect them to do you a service for money, you got it wrong if thats wat you think, its a “donation” not a fee. so just shut up sit down and wait a little while longer and thank these guys for what their doing. dont get me wrong i have to wait too so a few more days, no big deal.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id= Boris Borisjr

    Is very simple. I did it twice. 1) backup device. 2) Restore with the firm provided. 3) Without any setup on your ipad2 / iphone4s, simply apply jailbreak. And it´s done. Nothing wrong in mi case.

  • Stayhuge

    Looks like a real half-assed release. Tons of bugs and they only released it for Mac, Not Windows.

    Same here with an iPad2….I have the last itunes 10.5.3(3), snow leopard 10.6.7…and itunes recognized the ipad good….I tried in other USB, rebooting, in DFU, but nothing…..I tried also with the 0.1.2-1 and 0.1.2-2 versions of Absinthe with equal results….cant press the Jailbreak button cause Absinthe isn´t recognizing the device…I can´t access also to the Absinthe menu, up in the menu bar…
    If someone found a fix for that…I´ll apreciate so much the help… ;)

  • Christian Duvall

    Worked like a charm.

  • Alanine

  • jason hirsh

    I am getting a absinthe can not open this page/// I assume this is traffic related?? I tried the VPN on but get “a configuration error occured”

  • Speedfreak

    This worked perfect, I have Verizon 4S Black 16GB A405. I followed the exact steps in the video and worked flawlessly. For me I did backup, restore (used A405 IPSW), went through the quick setup on iPhone, waited till activated from Verizon message, and continued with Absinthe. I made sure to turn off iTunes auto sync (Preferences/devices), disconnected iPhone, ran Absinthe waited for it to open, connected iPhone, once detected followed instructions. DO NOT DISCONNECT UNTIL COMPLETE, AND YOU HAVE CLICKED ON ABSINTHE ON THE PHONE. Follow the instructions and you should be good.
    As always you guys rock, I don’t know how you do it, but truly a work of art!

    My fellow windows brothers, it is possible to do it with a windows PC! I just did!
    Successfully JB’ed my iPad 2 using my win7 computer running VMWare8/OS X 10.7.

    If you have the persistence and technical knowledge to get VMWare up and running OS X you can get the jailbreak too!

    gl to everyone!

  • Drummerfuj

    I am having the same issue, has anyone figured out what is going on with this?

  • Ocmax05

    thanks for all the hard work. btw! I found bug. when using Sbsetting to kill the processing, notification will be close and only after reboot it will work.

    CONFIRMED – I’m a Windows user and got tired of how long it was taking for a Windows release to come through.. so I created a virtual machine on my Windows 7 machine with Mac OSX on it. Ran the JB program on it with no issues at all – 100% successful. Been using it for a while, installed SB settings and so on – no issues whatsoever. If you’re tired of waiting for a Windows release and have the capability of doing this.. I’d say try it.

  • Ilirkla2

    hi.. what program do i need to make that?? can you plz help me

  • Zohaib

    yo me too i been waitin forever :(

  • harrysachs

    according to their website it wont be released until a couple days because of all the bugs they have come across

  • Eddie

    having trouble updating ibooks or any other apps for that matter would the jailbreak (which went fine by the way) have something to do with it?

  • Hazziqueeee

    I refresh this site every 10minute hopefully there’s an update for windows.

  • Alanine

    dude i am trying on my macbook 3.1 (OS X) but the f….king absinthe closed unexpectedly….what to do now?

    fuck you guy. im with 4sguy, where the hell is windows version? maybe 1/4th of the population even uses macs….

  • za

    oh big words. That sure feels good doesn’t it? but seriously think about it. YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO ANYTHING A.S.A.P. I think you’re even stupid as fuck you can’t even be grateful. and duh, of course im not in this for a medal, you stupid fuck.

  • Speedfreak

    For those having SBsettings woes, seeing no service, easy fix is to go to settings, general, networks and disable cellular data and voice roaming. Wait for carrier to show and the enable them back. I’m not sure what is causing this with SBsettings, but I can reproduce the same problem on occasional respring and sometimes a reset. Hopefully a single bug that will get worked out. PS if you get the random white icons like OS diag reset seems to clear that up.

  • Anonymous

    Fellow windows peeps, for those who want to try to do VMWare on Windows 7 machines.
    Here’s the basic steps (obviously you’ll need to look for actual links)
    1. get VMWare (7.1-8 all works) (~500mb)
    2. get OS X image made for VMWare (from reports older OSX versions doesn’t work, I used 10.7 Lion myself) (2.5-7 GB)
    3. get VMWare OSX Unlocker, you need this to run your image
    4. you probably need to turn on VT-x from your system BIOS
    5. Once OSX is running on VMWare, download and run the jailbreak program, remember to activate your device on the VM (should be prompted on screen)
    6. gl! if you still want to do this after all of that :)

    NOTE – you need Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) (or whatever the AMD equivalent is) on your CPU for this to work – look yours up and stop right now if you don’t have one that has VT-x.

  • Poop

    same here. so fucking dumb that we waited forever, and now all windows users are left in the dust. wtf.

  • Nigs

    I also did this on a virtual Machine, this is CONFIRMED to work on a virtual machine

  • Uuuu

    look at me, i have a mac, so i can sit here and say whatever i want YEE YEE YEE. i just think they could have waited till BOTH builds were done before releasing. windows users are left in the dust. and no, don’t tell me i should have bought a mac. it’s not like i can snap my fingers and come up with 1200 bucks. so.

  • Informant


    - Absinthe is only released for Mac OS X at this time. No windows build exists to download (yet)

    -This jailbreak will work on the iPhone 4S 5.0 and 5.0.1 (9A406 and 9A405) and iPad 2 5.0.1
    - YES, it works on both the WiFi and 3G versions of the iPad 2.

    - NO, THIS IS NOT AN UNLOCK, just a jailbreak. No unlock exists yet for ANY baseband on the 4S, and it is recommended that if you jailbreak, you jailbreak on 5.0 to preserve the lowest baseband possible to unlock IN THE FUTURE.

    - A windows version IS coming, ETA isn’t official. Probably tomorrow or in a couple days.

    - The jailbreak DOES work, but seems to be buggy. This is sort of a blessing in disguise for Windows users. The bugs (well, some of them) will be worked out by the time the Windows version of Absinthe releases.

    - There has been an updated version of Absinthe for Mac users. It fixes the database errors and removes the need for the VPN “trick”. Should make the process faster and easier.


  • za

    no its not that. i just happen to have a mac (which im grateful for) but im not against windows or windows users. you are right, and i agree, it would have been better if they waited for both build to be ready. id be okay to wait if that was the case (being a mac user) . but all im saying is, if it was the other way around, and the windows version would have been released first, i would not go about and say that i would be happy for the windows users to get all the bugs. that is just really messed up. and a lot of you guys are like this which i really dont understand. but okay no worries. to each his own. :)

    btw, i won’t tell you to buy a mac, that’s just cocky for me to do that (and the other mac users should not do the same). i really just dont agree with the original poster. that’s all.

  • Thanks chronic dev

  • Uuuu

    it’s just a huge bummer when all week long windows users have been following the dream team and got all excited “i literally woke up periodically in the night to check my iphone and load up tweets to check” and i finally wake up to an untethered release…but only for macs….like that just totally ruined my excitement.

  • T_rammal

    Is the jailbreak for ipad 2 3G 9A405? Or just iphone 4s and ipad 2 wifi?

  • Tokiya

    It’s for all A5 based devices. Therefore, it is for iPad 2 3G as well.

  • Raging2011

  • Amoeziextreme

    Completely new guide for noobs. I just found a way to do it on my iPad 2 [Wifi only] on iOS 5.0.1..
    1) Download the file above in step 3, then extract the folder to your Downloads. (Start Menu, your name, then on the left, downloads.)
    2) There should now be a folder called: “cinject_0.4.3″
    3) Open up CMD and type this (Without “” quotes..): “cd downloads”
    4) Then, do: “cd cinject_0.4.3″
    5) After so, type this command into cmd.. “cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig”
    6) On your device, click on install, and when prompted to type in a password, just click next, with no password in.
    7) After so, type this command: “cinject.exe -j payloads” 8) Just wait a little bit. ( Don’t freak out, or jizz ;) )
    9) Now after a few minutes from step 8, now type this command: “execute the command: cinject.exe -w”
    10) On your device, after doing step 9, toggle the “VPN” switch on in the settings, in about a few seconds after, it should say error.
    11) Wait, then it should restart. Cydia is now installed, and your device is now free!

    backup your device and then restore your device and every command should work.

    I finally found the solution….just boot your mac in safe mode….pressing shift after chimes sound….after that, your ipad2 or iphone 4s will be recognized by Absinthe
    Hope it help…. ;)

  • Pkchantawee

    Ok i have success on jailbrake iPad 2 3G
    i have some aswer from Thai people.

    You must to eras all content and setting. But before reset pls **Backup your device first** Importent.because after reset all your iPad it delete.

    after reset you can skip to home screen. and start step below.

    1) Download the file above in step 3, then extract the folder to your Downloads. (Start Menu, your name, then on the left, downloads.)
    2) There should now be a folder called: “cinject_0.4.3″
    3) Open up CMD and type this (Without “” quotes..): “cd downloads”
    4) Then, do: “cd cinject_0.4.3″
    5) After so, type this command into cmd.. “cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig”
    6) On your device, click on install, and when prompted to type in a password, just click next, with no password in.
    7) After so, type this command: “cinject.exe -j payloads” 8) Just wait a little bit. ( Don’t freak out, or jizz ;) )
    9) Now after a few minutes from step 8, now type this command: “execute the command: cinject.exe -w”
    10) On your device, after doing step 9, toggle the “VPN” switch on in the settings, in about a few seconds after, it should say error.
    11) Wait, then it should restart. Cydia is now installed, and your device is now free!

    Okay, I jail broke my iPhone 4s last night, everything was working perfectly, installed a few of my favorites like inteliscreenx and 3gunrestrictor, I woke up the next day and my phone won’t find any Verizon service, no 2g or 3G. I tried restarting it and turnin off and on air plane mode, nothing works. Any help!? Thanks

  • Guest

    Some one else had that problem and they went to settings, general, reset and reset all settings or reset network settings. Can’t remember which but you can try both.

  • MikeD

    Hey guys, jailbroke my 4S using Absinthe yesterday. Everything works great except I can’t access get my music or iTunes to play. All my music is in my library on my phone but it just simply will not play! Any ideas on what bug this may be? I have software 5.0.1 as well. Forgot to mention Pandora plays fine as well as youtube videos. Thanks for any help!

    Same thing Happened to me. I use the ITunes Match service. Randomly a song would start playing, but it would show Deftones artwork and song name, but Pink Floyd would be playing. A damn shame, but I restored and removed the jailbreak because my music is the most

    If anyone has a fix I would love to hear it so I can jailbreak again!

    all the talk of the “VPN” was simply what was exploited to jb the device. if you look in the VPN area there is a “jailbreak” vpn connection.

    my phone is hanging after running absinthe on the phone, assuming my numerous VPN connections i have played a part for it not installing cydia ( when i tried to activate the vpn after running absinthe it was prompting for my work VPN credentials took 10 minuites and did nothing, i pad2 took seconds) i removed all my VPN connections and it successfully installed cydia

  • Deano

    you need to have less coffee before you try jailbreaking. If the jailbreak button isn’t available yet is because you haven’t plugged in your iphone yet and it has been recognized.
    1. Start the Absinthe software
    2. THen plug in your phone to your computer.
    3. Now you can click on the jailbreak button :)

  • S Gupta1487

    Nice work..but how to unlock iphone 4s after jailbreak???

  • Yay


    Here’s what you do:

    Turn off your MacBook. Then turn it back on in Safe Mode; do this by holding down the Shift key while powering on. Once the computer is started up, open Absinthe and plug in your phone. Wait a few seconds and the Jailbreak button will become active. Voila! Finally got mine jailbroken and it took less than 10 minutes…maybe even less than 5. Thanks, Dev Team!

    this is happening to me too.

I tried switching from 3G to Wifi and it didnt make a difference.

    how long did it take you guys to install the absinthe? its taking me a bit long when i hit the absinthe icon it just says stand by… nothing is moving.

    Just wondering

  • howto?

    I have the very same problem… I can’t understand how other people did it in less than 10 minutes… I’ve tried a lot of things, such as re-downloading Absinth on Windows pc, reboot my computer and toggle on Airplane mode. I just don’t know what to do now.

    Put it on absinthe again, it will fix it. Reboot your iPad do it again. it Should work.

  • Ddell

    I had a lot of problems trying to JB my Ipad 2 kept stopping in the middle of the JB tried 20 different fixes for 1 hour none worked till I did this simple task…

    Unzip BOTH the absinthe.exe and Data into one folder on your desktop (before I only unzipped the absinthe.exe on my desktop) and then do the JB it worked perfectly.

  • Reece

    Bug once jail broken?
    When you press and hold the volume DOWN key, it’s meant to instant,y mute. But it doesn’t? It just slowly goes down as though you were pressing it several times…
    Not really an issue with the mute lock, but nonetheless still annoying.
    Another bug, spotlight doesn’t work once you have installed dreamboard.
    It could be the jailbreak itself, but it’s certainly one of the two.

    Anyway, loving my jail broken iPad. Wish the jailbreak was released sooner. Not at 11…
    Was up ALL NIGHT downloading tweaks and modifications :)

  • Reece

    This is for the 4S.

  • iPAD_ZAR

    I waited patiently for this to be released, and i can report that everything went 100% following the step-by-step guide. Took me MAX 5 mins. Thank you tou the Dev Team.

  • Reece

    Go to changes and hit reload, then wait about 15 minutes.
    If that doesn’t work, go to your sources, click on ANY source and see if they have any files. If they don’t, try the changes tab and reload again.
    If nothing works, try jailbreaking again :)

    After successful jailbreak, what must i do. I am new to this, and jailbreaking was my first step. Now when i go to iTunes and drag cracked .ipa files, it tries to sync and then says “iTunes Sync Error” App Failed to install. If anyone is kind enough to assist, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Reece

    Well, for starters, that’s piracy, so nobody on here will want to help you, secondly, that’s because iTunes can recognise the pirated apps? Did you place them in the folder where all your apps are held as well as in itunes itself? (not in iTunes. In windows explorer)

  • Reece

    Do a backup.
    You did backup before you did the jailbreak, right?

  • Stan Laurentiu80

    Question : I have 2 iPhones 4s, one activated, made Jailbreak on it, everything is OK, another UN-ACTIVATED and SIM LOCK, can I make Jailbreak on it? Or an Unlock for baseband 1.0.13 ? I managed to have access to main screen bypassing activation (is on youtube) but I can do nothing about Jailbreak and Unlock.

  • Tribal12

    hi maybe a silly question but its probably on alot of peoples minds, i allready have iPad 2 5.0.1 (9A405) do i still have to backup and restore with itunes or skip that step or just jump straight into jaulbreak?? thank you for any reply

  • Reece

    Restore your phone, try again.
    Uninstall and reinstall iTunes.
    Try different usb ports.
    Try the cli method.
    Try booting into safe mode and trying the exploit,

  • Tribal12

    install installous it will come with app sync and you should be fine i would imagin,

  • Mishkanetworks

    what the hell happened. my phone and notes icon turned gray :/

  • James

    solved, I was jail breaking my iPad 2 following the steps
    1.restore (factory settings) the firmware by clicking the ‘restore’ button on iTunes.
    2.set up as a new iPad
    3.disconnect iPad (maybe not need to)
    4.open absinthe
    5.connect iPad if disconnected previously.
    6.click jailbreak botton on absinthe
    7.click the absinthe icon on iPad

  • Mishkanetworks

    nvrmind. ive remove the winter board.

  • James

    Forgot to mention a very important thing, using iPad to set up itself as a new iPad, NOT using iTunes, so that you could use iTunes to restore from previous back up!

  • Joannedoran

    Can anyone verify if this will unlock the phone or if there is an unlock solution out there after the jailbreak? This is the first time I have done jailbreaking and the main reason is to unlock my phone so any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!

    An unlock suitable for your basband should hopefully release in the future, jailbreaking is the important 1st step. As for it being your 1st time, you’re not alone ;)

  • Bogh

    try rebooting your device

  • Fdsfds

    Thank You very much Dream Team!~ It works perfectly!

  • Playground


    Someone already posted this below, but MAKE SURE you extract both the absinthe.exe file AND the data folder. I put both the data folder and the .exe in a folder on my desktop. Then run the .exe and jailbreak like normal.

    Works great!! Good job.

  • Bornxyz

    Absinthe crashes on open. Im on 10.5.8 trying to JB 5.0.1 Ipad2. Pls help ! Tks

  • Rookray

    installing went good, but when I opened cydia it tries to reboot again and again, Any suggestions?

  • Asd

    worked great! tnx

  • Josexu

    thank’s a lot!! I do it with simcard code on and it goes fine. Only when the 4s restarts you have to put the code and ABSINTHE does the rest.

    Why so many flows with this absinthe please did someone tryed it before releasing
    Nothing works not heaven cinject work so
    Those people that saying it work it B.

  • Aenthtoo

    Jailbroken!!! my iPad2, Oh! OH! Oh! , the words fail me to say thank you.

  • Jehuty

    So i tried and tried and just kept clicking on the absinthe and would say its thing and please wait but nothing would happen. From all the ready I ended up doing a restore in the ihpone and if you backed up you loose nothing but what u had set for wallpapers and tones but all your icons and folders are there. Once that is done do the jailbreak again or even if its the first time running it. I’m sure it worked for me the second timie becasue when I did the restore then jailbreak my wifi was not setup from the restore i did so I set wifi up and made sure no lock screen was on then did the jailbreak again hit the green jailbreak icon on my ihpone and it finnaly wetn through. Oh and once u get the app make sure you get a few things

    In the top ten needs or whatever the first stared catigory in cydia get activator it lets you make any botton on the phone do want you want or gestures. Second install somthing called appsync and installous these 2 in combination is an app that lets you download your ipa’s on your computer then dumb them into apps section of intunes that when u hit sync thoes apps and games will sync to you phone. Installous is also the app store black marget but the transfer part is appsync.

    Yes you welcome.

    How to use the downloaded ipsw file to restore iPad using iTunes? when I click the restore button I don’t get any options to choose the ipsw file, and instead it starts downloading.

  • snosie

    did you first upgrade to 5.0.1? what version did you have before?
    did you do it on windows or mac? sorry for all the questions but I am nervous

    did anyone do this on the same device?

  • Keola

    My iphone 4s is dead so far…… tried jailbreak yesterday morning and throughout the day up till now ive been trying to fix it… I cant restore it using itunes so ive been searching frantically for a fix.. ive been receiving this error 17 message. (Error 17
    Device failed to display the applelogo img3 which results in this error.
    One or more of the nand0/nor0 flash images were missing from the IPSW)
    i really need help it has been a little over 24 hrs since my phone has been down:(

  • Guest

    Guys, if your stuck with “Beginning jailbreak.. this may take a while” (i was too and i kept on repeating the process to no avail), the sure-fire solution is really to “Erase all contents and settings” (provided you did a back-up) then Activate iDevice by connecting through iTunes, then select “set up as new phone” on the iPhone when prompted, then run Absinthe again. The whole jailbreaking process should take about 5 minutes only. :) Then after a successful jailbreak, you can go ahead and restore from back-up. Thanks to the others posters who mentioned this in the comments section. helped me a lot. thank you :)

  • Tin

    easy and fast! love it! many thanks!

  • guest

    I’ve got an Ipad2 which was on 4.3.3. Did the steps mentioned above.
    1. downloaded the ipsw (link above).
    2. Restore to that ipsw (in itunes (windows) it’s shift click on restore, which i did – 5.0.1 got installed (I did no backup of personal data! just moved away my games and apps.
    3. In this step I’ve used absinthe on the mac of my girlfriend because win version wasn’t available.
    4. Click on the absinthe icon
    I wish to thank all the guys who made this possible!!!!

  • Game_spartan

    I have a Sprint 4s and after jailbreaking it I get no service. It tries to activate but it says contact my carrier if problem persists. Is there a certain way to activate my phone again?

  • Ryewill

    You need to use a program called TinyUmbrella to restore your device. I have had the same problem before. What TinyUmbrella does is tricks iTunes into thinking that your iphone is connected to the apple server but it is really connected to their server. So you have to run T.U. first before you open iTunes for a restore. There should also be some guides on how to use T.U. but its fairly simple. Good luck. I hope this helps.

    iPad 2 done successfully but a couple of app icons have turned grey (YouTube and notes)
    Is there a fix for this?

  • Reece

    Keep connecting and disconnecting your iDevice.
    If that fails, reinstall iTunes V10.5 from the Apple Website.
    If THAT fails, it may be a driver problem. But if iTunes picks it up, the Jailbreak program will find it as well.

    What version of Windows are you on? Vista? XP? 7?
    Also, have you tried the cinject method?

    I have ipad 2 and I went through all this process. It installed Cydia, but after I clicked on it, it restarted and my default apps like iPod, Pictures, AppStore, and others simply dissapeared!!! INCLUDING THE CYDIA ICON. I’ve went to search those apps but none appear. What’s happening?? Anyone having the same issue?

  • mmmki

    it works fine thanks!! but the music (ipod) logo has turned grey anthg i can do to fix it?

  • OFGA

    First of all, thank you for your amazing efforts in the release of this tool. Here there is my case: I want to JailBrake my iPad2 which is now running the iOS 5.0.1 (9A405) since three weeks ago. My question is: why do I need to restore the iPad with the same iOS? Do I need extricly to do it? What happens if I just proceed with the JailBrake process? Is there something different in this IPSW file? Thanks for your replies.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/6UT5INNLHLB2IZ42XSE22N52QM UncleBob007

    For those with crashing issue. When you extract the zip file, extract it to the same name folder which is “absinthe-win-0.2″ and not anywhere else, there should be a data folder once you open the absinthe-win-0.2 folder. If you extract somewhere else it will crashes since the data folder is not in place. Delete all the strange folders created under your C: drive also. I had a similar problem too until I realized it.

  • Payam83

    I am replying to my own post. for those who have the same problem:
    I did the jailbreak with Absinte V 0.2 on WIN first and it didn’t go through, then tried Absinte V 0.1 on MAC and again had the problem of not restarting to install Cydia. But after I tried with Absinte V 0.2 MAC, it did it easily with no problem. So try that if you have the same problem.

    Hello I have a Mac os X 10.5.8 and have been trying to open absinthe after I unzip it and it does not open. I keep getting this message The application Absinthe quit unexpectedly. I keep re launching it but i have had no luck. Can some one help? this is my first time ever trying to jail break my 4s

  • Sandoksa

    you do not need to reinstall I did an upgrade successfully without updating the operating system and did not lose any settings. I guess this information is for those that have not upgraded to the latest version. The whole process was straight forward only with one confusing part in that the jailbreak software went back to the first screen when completed.

    Thanks guys for setting me free, If only I could watch flash direct…

  • Sandoksa


    I am Free at last

    Worked well. Did not bother with the backup.

    1. Connected mu imprisoned iPad 2
    2. Pressed the jailbreak icon and let it run
    3. After a while it completed its op.
    4. I pressed the green skull and it downloaded more data.
    5. Finally the green skull was replaced with the Cydia icon.
    6. I pressed it and it did anther download and reboot.

    The only confusing past was that the first app sought of reset and looked ready to run again. DO NOT Hit the start button on the PC a second time. Not needed. (It could use a job end flash screen instead of re-displaying the initial screen ready)

    But overall I am happy. Now I can fall in love with my iPad 2 again. I nearly sold it to by a Sumsung. I want flash, multitasking and access to me data files.

    Thanks guys job well done.

    Blank or white Icons will correct themselves after you restart the Springboard.

    While jailbreaking my iPad 2 I ran into a few problems. The absinthe program ran fine and installed the absinthe icon onto my iPad. I followed the instructions and clicked on the icon and it said “absinthe is setting things up, please stand by”. Well it never worked. I repeated these steps 3 times with no success. So heres how to fix it.

    1. Back up your device via iTunes.
    2. From the iPad delete all data.
    3. From iTunes set up iPad as new device.
    4. When complete, run absinthe jailbreak again.
    5. Follow instructions and click on absinthe icon on iPad.
    6. Cydia will then install and replace absinthe icon.
    7. Restore iPad using previous backup.

    Absinthe/Cydia install should take only a few minutes total.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hit Me Yo

    nvm i forgot the change the settings :D

  • Alex

    if you have a “Absithe is setting….blah blah blah” bug:
    after a file backup, you can just do “Reset settings and delete data” on your device. Without doing that from iTunes. Worked for me anyway.

    I am trying to jailbreak my 4S and keep getting an error when the process is almost done. It states that absinthe.exe has stopped working ? Any ideas….I tried it 5 times already with no success

  • figaro

    I installed Cydia on my 4S so then I could unlock it. Everything’s fine until I get to add the ultrasn0w source. After downloading all the files, I get back to the sources screen and Ultrasn0w URL doesn’t show. Anybody know what’s happening?

  • neoayanex

    the jb works perfectly with my ipad2…thanks to you Ahmed and the rest of the dream team who makes this possible…

  • Robf

    I had the same error, make sure the data folder is extracted to the same folder as Absinthe. that fixed it for me.

  • Lou

    Just JB’d my 4S, and had the absinthe.exe crash. I then read ROBF below and he’s right on point. Putting the Absinthe Jailbreak icon back in the folder with its data folder fixed the problem. I wonder if my neat housekeeping (icons in separate location) has also been the cause of my Redsn0w crashes of late? Will try it and see. Thanks, ROBF!

  • Joshi Rosey

    Worked great, once i realized what i was doing wrong, it’s been along time coming and i’m looking forward to seeing if it all works good

  • joyfish

    Thank you Stan, iTunes 10 recognizes my phone – IOS 5.0.1 (9A405)

  • 691lucian

    Just because you jailbreak it , it doesn mean that you can put any sim, you still have to unlock it with a cdma tool so that it accepts different sims..

  • 691lucian

    There is different apps… but ive tried them recently and none of them work…examples…Dessid,wepgen,dlssid,aircrack and wep pro….none of them work…. youd be better off hacking from a PC then just use the password you get….I’d recomend using a brute force password cracker its alot faster than any other method… u should look into it…

  • 691lucian

    Download tinyumberella and itwill have an option to fix the 100x bootloop and it should fix it, if not then u probably have a tethered jailbreak , then u are gonna have to start from scratch if u have untethered …next time u go to cydia make sure you get “substrate safe mode”!!!

    I jailbroke my 4s about 4 days ago , everything works fine . Except everytime I try to sync , it wont sync at all it says Sync session failed to start . so I can’t add any new music or anything . Is there any way to fix this ?

  • Stan Laurentiu80

    Thats OK, then you can try another version of Absinthe , I’ve made Jailbreak on mine with 0.1 for MAC and another 2 , one with 0.1 for win and second with 0.3 for win. You have to close iTunes, and try with different version of Absinthe. If that doesn’t work, try it with another cable too. But never disconnect phone from computer after you close iTunes because it is possible that iTunes starts again when you connect the phone. Good look and keep us informed!

  • Aandreasyan2003

    Thanks 691lucian. And where can I find a cdma tool?

  • Sulinna

    I have an iPhone 4S running OS 5.0.1 and I’ve used Absinthe to jailbreak and untethered with Corona. Everytime I try and run/intall UltraSn0w I get these error messages “subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 255″ and “Sub-process/usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)”. I’ve also removed UltraSn0w and reinstalled several times but keep getting these error messages. I’d appreciate any help/advise anyone can give me.

  • Stan Laurentiu80

    That’s because Ultrasn0w is not compatible with 4S, at least for the moment, we hope to be in update for 4S basebands, but nobody say nothing about it! Wait for un update like us!

  • Swileman84

    Hey i had the same problem but thats because i skipped a step from the instructions. Make sure you download the IOS 5.0.1 and restore your ipad from that, To do that save the IOS 5.0.1 to your desktop and plug your ipad in and open itunes, then hold the shift key and click restore and locate the IOS 5.0.1 you have just saved to the desktop. After it has fully restored unplug it open up Absinthe and try again, It took about 40 secs to complete

    iPad 2 is stuck on boot screen after trying to install PKGbackup in Cydia… Any suggestions on how to get past the boot screen?

  • Anonymous

    I am having the same issue… Works fine for a while, then does as you explain. Apps open up to only the upper left 1/4 of the screen and are not functional as the screen does not let you touch anything other than the top left 1/4 of the app.

    I thought this was something to do with some of the tweaks I installed. So I restored my phone with iTunes, re-jailbroke it, and installed nothing other than SBSettings. After one full day, of working fine, it did it again. :(

    iPhones require 5 volts so your standard Windows PC USB will charge fine. However, iPads require 10 volts and will not charge from a Windows PC. I have heard that some models of Macs have a a 10 volt USB, but I’m not sure which ones. While plugged into a Windows PC USB iPad will run off the USB power and not use onboard battery.

  • JohnSpintz

    Hey there are two different types of jailbreak, the tethered and the untethered. You might have downloaded the tethered because every time you reboot the ipad, you have to jailbreak it again, but with the untethered jailbreak, you don’t have to re jailbreak the iPad! Hope this helps :)

    Everything works perfectly except that whenever I open my Photos, my phone will crash and direct me to safe mood.

    Anyone has any idea how to solve this issue?

    Hey i have problem with restoring the iphone 4s 5.0.0 i downloaded on this site. I get message that Iphone cant be restored, An unknown error occurred (3194). Dont know what to do as it says here that i need to restore first.

    Hello, guys. Maybe You could help me.
    In this jailbreak I found that for iPhone 4 at-commands worked fine, but for 4S at-commands aren’t work. Why? Is it because of 4S and Apple block or is it because jailbreak is not perfect? OpenSSH is installed and would like to perform at-commands from my PC e.g. making calls. Have anybody tried?

    Please specify what is current sw in your iPhone4S? If you have upgraded to iOS 5.1 then it’s impossible to revert back to iOS 5.0.0

    Hi, it seems to me it does not work AFTER the iOS 5.1 release:-(. I am not able to restore iPad 2 running on 5.0.1. with iTunes and that is (probably) why the Absinthe does not finish (VPN does not start even after manual switch from Settings). any ideas? THX Tom

    I jailbroke my 4S literally the day the untethered 5.0.1 came out. Just now I’m having issues with the video player, whether it’s YouTube or embedded into a web page. Playing a video causes the YouTube app and browser to crash. Anyone else having issues or know what the problem could be?

    everytime i plug in my ipad2 it says device not supported


  • Kaitlyn

    Absinthe recognizes my iPhone 4s, but when I click “jailbreak” it loads a small bit and then just stays frozen. I left it connected for hours, and nothing happened, which is quite frustrating. I’ve restored my iPhone (5.0.1) multiple times, rebooted the computer and phone and Absinthe and it does the same thing every time, just sits there…I’ve tried Red Sn0w as well, and downloaded 2 different versions of IPSW firmware files, but it refuses to recognize/support either one of them…so I have had 0 luck with Green Pois0n AND Red Sn0w. I feel like I’ll never get this iPhone jailbroken. Can someone help or give a suggestion?

  • Andrew Lowde

    I am having the same problem Absinthe will not recognise my ipad 2 ??? please help !!!!

  • Andrew Lowde

    Absinthe states that the device is not supported why is this ?

  • Kareembbu

    Someone please help me, I’m in dire need of it!! I keep getting the absinthe.exe has stopped working error. I am well aware that I need to “Extract All” on my desktop as well as run as an administrator I have done so and it’s to no avail. My USB fell out in my first attempt to jailbreak so I encountered what’s known as the “Camera Roll Absinthe Error” which basically ’causes the camera roll to go empty do to an incomplete jailbreak. The simple solution is to rerun Absinthe twice but I can’t do so if it continues to give me this damn error. :’(

    What about ipad2 with IOS 5.1?

  • Martin

    When is jailbreak 5.1 come out for iPhone 4S?

  • Cade1979

    there is a un-teathered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S running IOS 5 or 5.0.1, you can use redsn0w_ 0.9.10b6 and if your using redsn0w you need to know how to put your phone in DFU mode, or use Absinthe v0.4 which does everything for you if all things go right and the servers aren’t heavy, but by reading peoples post’s on using Absinthe, I’d recommend using redsn0w, it seems like a more stable jailbreak. If you don’t know how to do it properly there’s sites on the net that charge, or there’s tutorials on YouTube on how to jailbreak using redsn0w.If your on IOS 5 I don’t see what the problem is, it’s very easy to jailbreak it properly, but my 4s was having battery issues and I’ve read that updating to 5.1 will increase your battery’s life, and sure enough it did, almost 2 days, but I had to do that to sacrifice my jailbreak…
    All you complainers complaining about a jailbreak for 5.1, if every person contributed $5.00 through paypal, the Chronic-Dev Team would have alot more time to spend on working on a jailbreak, just imagine if everybody who takes advantage of uing jailbreaks contributes $5.00, only 500 people x’s 5, that’s alot of money, more money means more time to spend on working on a jailbreak for 5.1!!!!

  • Cade1979

    there’s lots of cheap sites on the net that will do it for you, just google search, and I’ve seen sites as cheap as $19.95 to unlock your iPhone 4S

  • Cade1979

    Absinthe only supports iPhone 4S only on IOS 5 and 5.0.1, if you updated to IOS 5.1, you cannot jailbreak it using Absinthe or redsn0w, if you keep on trying you can ruin your device, you have to wait until there is a jailbreak for iPhone 4S on IOS 5.1!!!

  • Cade1979

    exactly, I don’t know why it’s so hard for these people to understand… But I’ve always contributed through paypal and always will for there hard efforts by giving us these open source jailbreaks, they could be charging but they don’t

  • Cade1979

    did you use Absinthe? it seems like every post I’m reading on people who used Absinthe to jailbreak there iPhone 4s on 5 or 5.0.1, back uo restore, then use redsn0ws 0.9.10b6 latest, i found it alot more stable with no issues

  • Cade1979

    you need to unlock it to use on any GSM carrier in the world, even prepaid, you’ll just need an activated sim card from At&T, but first you have to get it unlocked, there is numerous sites on the web that will do it for you or have step by step, tech support to unlock it for a one time fee, just shop around on the net for the cheapest and one that you like, just Google unlocking iPhone sites, and you’ll get alot of hits

  • Cade1979

    be patient, there’s lot’s of us waiting for it to come out, the Chronic Dev-Team is working hard to get it out, hopefully in the next cpl weeks for iphone 4s and ipad2 on IOS 5.1

  • sa3d

HELP!!!!

  • Resp2sav_u

    Hey there this is Rob at resp2sav_u@yahoo. If it just the loading circle that gets stuck, push and hold your power button it will reboot and be fine. RedsnOw has one that doesn’t involve d/ling anything like Absel. Or anything else and will just boot with Cidia ready. It you end up with only a couple apps showing turn off iPad completely let set 2 min then turn back on. You r there though. I have just alwaysed RedsnOw and I’m running untethered 5.0.1 with instalous ans apptracker for 5. X and running great. Do not ever d/l (icleaner) on anything accept an IPhone. IWipe works great though. I would do a complete restore, if you don’t have stuff u care about loosing and use RedsnOw instead. If u want to keep all apps u have Cidia and AppStore use Appbacker first before the restore. Do a little research on rides sow

  • Resp2sav_u

    Research RedsnOw and I think you will like it. If you have any other prob. feel free to hit me up. I wipe, Cleaner and FScache clearers have been great

    jailbreak is not a vpn it is a hack that installs cydia, a third party app store that can install debian installer files

    re jailbreak your device because all you did was delete the icon of your spring board and only some of the necessary files. it is not completely gone
