Absinthe 0.1.2-2 Jailbreak Download (Mac): iPad 2, iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak iOS 5.0 – iOS 5.0.1
Today is a great day for the history of Apple A5 processors jailbreak (iPad 2/iPhone 4s). Well known group of hackers team Chronic Dev-Team has just released Absinthe, the first iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak software and the first untethered jailbreak for iPad 2 users runing iOS 5.0.1. They used the exploits made by @pod2g, @planetbeing, @saurik, @pimskeks, p0sixninja, @MuscleNerd and @xvolks. As Chronic Dev Team has mentioned on their official blog post concerning the A5 untethered jailbreak itself, the Absinthe jailbreak is as ever simple to use and is a one click method for tech dummies.
Here is what’s @pod2g hacker said about Absinthe Jailbreak:
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.
This is a little scary I know, but the chance you break something is really small, since we made lots of tests to verify the process on different devices. But it is the first time we use the backup / restore functions of iTunes to install software, and there are maybe things we are not aware of.
As you already know, different security researchers put a lot of energy to work out the different issues we had to install the untether on new devices.
Here is the complete list of Absinthe supported devices :
- iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
- iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1

UPDATE: Chronic Dev Team has released a new build that’ll point the web clip to greenpois0n.com instead of the absinthe dedicated page. This will handle better the workload.
