Jailbreak (Untethered 5.1.1)- Absinthe 2.0.4 is released, Links and Tutorial

Today at the Hack In The Box conference in Amsterdam. Pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team not only talked about the latest exploit for iOS 5.1.1 firmware but also released a Jailbreak to the world. This has been long-awaited especially for myself since two months ago I had to restore my device and lost my jailbreak. Now if i would have used Tiny Umbrella to back up my SHSH blobs before hand I could have reverted to the previous firmware to jailbreak again. Unfortunately that was not the case for me. So here we are with Absinthe 2.0 and I am back in the game, the Jailbreak game at least. So below you can find the links to Absinthe 2.0 for Mac Windows and Linux and a tutorial on how to jailbreak your device if your new to this or even if you not so new. Enjoy!

List of Supported devices-

  • iPhone 3Gs
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4 CDMA
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 1
  • iPad 2 Wifi
  • iPad 2 GSM
  • iPad 2 CDMA
  • iPad 2 Wifi, R2
  • iPad 3 Wifi
  • iPad 3 Global
  • iPad 3 CDMA
  • iPod 3G
  • iPod 4G
  • AppleTV 2


1. Sync and back up your device. To make a backup right-click your device in the side bar of iTunes and select “Back up”

2. Once Back up is complete the Chronic Dev Team recommends that you Erase all your content for a faster process. This is not a must but what I have found useful is to un-sync any apps you don’t need or do not want to lose data or settings. For example un-sync – Tones, Movies, Music, TV shows, Podcasts, Books, Photos and iTunes U. Also simply uncheck all of the Apps you don’t immediately need. This will make the Jailbreak faster due to not having to sync all of this back once the Jailbreak is complete. *MAKE SURE to keep your device connect vis USB cable*

3. Download Absinthe 2.0. You can get this from the Chronic Dev Team site here or here are direct links-

Absinthe v2.0.4 (Win)

Absinthe v2.0.4 (Mac)

Absinthe v2.0.4 (Linux)

4. Run Absinthe 2.0 and click “Jailbreak” then just wait a while till it does its thing.

5. Once its done, if you Erased your content (step 2) then restore your device. In iTunes right-click on your device name in the side bar and select “Restore from backup” and select the latest back up. Doing this will restore all of your content you previously had on the device.
