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.
One of missing features in iOS is that it doesn’t allow the users to customize the look and general user interface of the operating system. The only thing we can change is the wallpaper, both on homescreen and on lockscreen. This is the main reason many people jailbreak their devices to enjoy a variety of customization options available in Cydia store. With the tweaks and themes in Cydia one can change the every aspect of the iOS.
As we have untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak now, we can safely upgrade our iPhone 4 GSM and iPhone 3GS to iOS 5.1.1 and then unlock it using this method. This guide requires two tools, one is called Sn0wbreeze and another is Ultrasn0w. However, ultrasn0w is not updated yet to support iOS 5.1.1. For this purpose we will use an Ultrasn0w fixer.
I always wanted to know when I I took the photos present in iPhone Photo App but there is no native solution provided by Apple. One out of many solutions is to install an app from App Store which can extract the exact date and time of the photos. For this purpose my all time favorite is ExifWizard which provides a lot of information like date and time, aperture, exposure, ISO equiv etc. This app can also translate EXIF. However, such apps doesn’t provide one-click solutions.
Snowbreeze 2.9.4 was released the day before yesterday and the same day Apple rolled out a new build 9B208 of iOS 5.1.1 for iPhone 4 GSM models. This build invalidated the Absinthe’s untether payload on iPhone 4 GSM. Fortunately Pod2g and his team fixed the issue within few hours and released a new absinthe version bringing the support for this new build. Now the same patch has been added to Sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 for iPhone 4 Users.
Have you read the news or got any update on your iPhone/iTunes about Apple’s iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B208 update for iPhone 4 GSM? The very first iOS 5.1.1 version contained the build number 9B206 but today’s update contains a new build 9B208. Most users won’t find this update on their device or through iTunes, but Apple has actually released it and is rolling it out slowly to other countries and carriers.
iH8sn0w has just pushed out Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 to support the untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1 running on A4 devices and previous models namely iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1 and iPod Touch models. This update doesn’t support A5 powered devices that are iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the new iPad.
Chronic Dev Team has just released a minor update in the form of Absinthe 2.0.1. This new version fixes the issues faced by some users where the jailbreak tool hangs and doesn’t respond for a very long time.
As Chronic Dev Team released Corona Package for those users who were running tethered jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 on their devices to convert the tethered into untethered, Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 package is also available for the users who are running tethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak.
Finally the wait is over now. Absinthe 2.0 is now available for download. It provides untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, all iPad version, iPod Touch models and iPhone 3GS running on iOS 5.1.1. It can also jailbreak Apple TV 2G, but it doesn’t support Apple TV 3G right now. [Please read the updates below]
