Absinthe 2.0 has written another chapter of success for Chronic Dev Team. It is used to jailbreak over a million idevices. This figure includes a quarter of a million third generation iPads. Even today when an updated version of absinthe 2.0.4 was released, it overloaded the greenpois0n servers for a while.
Absinthe 2.0.4 brings the untethered jailbreak support for WiFi only iPad 2, 4. In the previous versions the support for this device was not added. After receiving the successful reports from beta tester, Pod2g has finally released absinthe 2.0.4 version with iPad 2 WiFi version support.
The underlying untether jailbreak which is called Rocky Racoon is also updated for all devices. Apart from the code improvements I also noticed that after installing Rocky Racoon 1.0-3 update from Cydia the battery time of my iPhone 4 has improved. The battery timing problem might be due to some other apps or due to a faulty restore process, but it is alway better to install the latest version of untethered jailbreak on your device.
If you have already jailbroken your device untethered using any version of Absinthe, you don’t need to re-jailbreak it with this tool. In fact you are suggested to use “Rocky Racoon 1.0-3” update from cydia. The users who are running tethered jailbreak on their devices are also advised not to restore fresh iOS 5.1.1, instead they should install Rocky Racoon from Cydia to convert their tethered jailbreak into untethered.
You can install Rocky Racoon from Cydia store after refreshing the changes. Others can get the latest version of Absinthe 2.0.4 from these links.
