Earlier Friday morning Greenpois0n Absinthe 2.0 was released to the public. Greenopis0n Absinthe 2.0 is the jailbreaking tool which has been in the works for a while now, and gives the user a untethered jailbreak. In this post I’m going to tell you how to jailbreak your iDevice using this new tool.
The following is a list of compatible devices:
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3GS
- iPad (3rd gen)
- iPad 2
- iPad 1
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod touch 4G
- Apple TV 2G
The first thing you’ll neeed to do is download the Greenpis0n Absinthe 2.0 tool.
Once you have the file downloaded, open it, and run it. It should begin to extract files (on Windows) and create a new folder in the same directory which you opened it in, in my case it’s the desktop.
Once all the files are extracted open the folder and open up the file titled absinthe, this is the jailbreak tool itself.
Now make sure your iDevice is connected to your computer and click jailbreak. If Greenpois0n Absinthe 2.0 doesn’t detect your device then you may not have iTunes installed, make sure iTunes is installed before beginning this jailbreak process, if your iDevice still isn’t detected then leave a comment down below or on Facebook and I will try to help and solve your issue.
Absinthe 2.0 will run through a process that will take a few minutes. The device will look like it is being restored from a backup, but don’t worry, this is normal, and once the device boots back up you will see a progress bar for a few seconds, but this is also normal. Once the jailbreak process is finished, and the device has booted back up, it should respiring. Once the device has resprung, Cydia should be installed, and your device should be jailbroken.
This is an untethered jailbreak, so you won’t need to connect to your computer every time you boot up your device.
Today’s update only works with iOS 5.1.1, so if you have a device running iOS 5.1, you’ll need to update it.
Absinthe 2.0.1 was released today to fix some bugs. Version 2.0.1 is for “fixing a hang that could occur in certain situations” according to @pimskeks.
The above download links are up to date and will link you to version 2.0.1.
