will be is next-generation jailbreak tool for A5-powered devices namely iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Pod2g says that absinthe will be is available for download in some hours.
Apple introduced a more powerful processor named A5-process in iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Due to this new technology the existing bootrom level exploits don’t work on these devices. But finally the hackers have managed to find a way to break these devices.
According to the update from Pod2g’s blog:
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.
MuscleNerd has already told us some details of upcoming jailbreak but this is the first time Pod2g mentioned the exact name of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak. If you want to read the details about who should get this jailbreak and who should remain on iOS 5.0, please read the previous post.
We will post the download links for Absinthe and complete step by step jailbreak once it is out.
Finally it is out:
Download Absinthe for Mac OS X. It is yet not available for Windows users.
Update: Absinthe v0.2 is now available for both Windows and Mac. It contains fixes for bugs like VPS issue etc.
