If you have been waiting for a jailbreak for your A5 iOS device, it has finally arrived! Produced by the famous Chronic-Dev Team, and supported by the efforts of Pod2g and the iPhone Dev Team, Absinthe offers users the ability to jailbreak iOS 5 and 5.0.1 into an untethered state.
A large amount of work has been contributed to Absinthe to verify the highest possible quality, but since this is a new jailbreak, bugs may exist due to this being the first time the development teams have used the backup / restore process within iTunes to install software, in other words; the jailbreak process is something which is alien to all. If you are an iPhone 4S owner who is ultimately looking to achieve a software based unlock, it is also worth heeding the advice given by the iPhone Dev-Team and remaining on iOS 5.0 if possible.
Works on the following A5 Devices:
iPhone 4S 5.0.1
iPhone 4S 5.0
iPad 2 5.0.1
(Version 0.4 links are displayed)
Windows and Linux versions of the tool will be available soon.
