Finally the moment comes, pod2g the member of the Chronic Dev Team has released the new tool called Absinthe A5 which allows you to Untethered Jailbreak for your iPhone 4S and iPad 2. pod2g, along with iPhone Dev Team had earlier released the Corona which is the Untethered Jailbreak for A4 devices, namely iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch.
Absinthe A5 which is actually an upgrade to the Greenpois0n will be able to apply untethered jailbreak for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S which are actually A5 processor based devices which until now didn’t even had tethered jailbreak except for JailbreakMe for iPad 2 based on iOS 4.3.3.
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.
There are currently two tools in the release line
- 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.
Earlier today pod2g had posted :
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.
Indeed the tool is out and is available for only Mac devices and Windows and Linux versions will follow shortly. Users can now download the tool on their Mac and apply Untethered Jailbreak for their iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
This is also the first time when any Jailbreak tool will use the backup and restore functions of iTunes to install software. There are some issues expected to come up with this tool which will anyhow be fixed within few days in the next update.
The iPhone Dev Team will also release the popular Jailbreak tool Redsn0w for thee same purpose with all bugs fixed. This is also a very special moment for the iPhone Jailbreak community as this would be the first time since a long time when all iDevices can be given Untethered Jailbreak since iOS 4.3.3.
The devices which can now be Jailbroken using Absinthe are :
- iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0 (9A334) and 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
- All models of the iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 (9A405).
