The users who have ever tasted the sweetness of jailbreaking their devices are eagerly waiting for the next untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak which will be called “Absinthe 2.0“. This jailbreak will also be released in other flavors like Redsn0w, CLI. You can read what’s the difference between all these tools in our previous post.
Though the recent tweets from Pod2 clearly indicate that Absinthe 2.0 is almost ready which can be released anytime soon but the chances are very high that it may be released at HITB (Hack In The Box) security conference which is taking place in Amsterdam right now. A session about iOS jailbreak esp related to Absinthe Jailbreak has started and
@pod2g @p0sixninja @planetbeing are coming on the stage one by one to explain the insides.
To increase the expectation level, here is a tweet from the hacker @xvolks who says that Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak will be out very soon. @xvolks is the same person who first reported about Absinthe 2.0 and also posted a video of jailbroken device by this tool. Later the video was removed on the request of iPhone Dev Team.
As usual a warning for unlockers! If absinthe 2.0 is released today, don’t hurry to update your device to iOS 5.1.1 because you might lose the unlock ability forever. Unlockers must always use a custom iOS 5.1.1 firmware prepared with Redsn0w while preserving the baseband.
We will keep you updated on Absinthe 2.0.
[Update:] Now it’s break time at the HITB conference. Everyone is expecting the release of iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak in the second session of conference.
