Absinthe 2.0 Is Here To Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1!
Finally iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak has became public. Absinthe 2.0 rushes to our hard drives like a Flashman as we finally get free out of Apple’s jail and are welcome to use Cydia advantages at the full throttle. The long months of waiting are over for those who has been waiting for iOS 5.1 and 5.1.1 jb (which is pretty much the same).
The iOS hackers that gathered at this year’s HITB conference to discuss the most interesting and disturbing questions concerning jail breaking world made thousands of people happier with this release. To get use of Absinthe right now follow this iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak tutorial. There are pretty many pluses in this release. Let’s see which are those.
First of all, if you are a jailbreaker but was afraid to update to something higher than 5.0.1 – leave your fears aside. Now the latest Apple’s firmware can be hacked easily in just few minutes. Update, run Absinthe, have fun.
If you were on iOS 5.1/5.1.1 and weren’t able (or didn’t want) to downgrade to lower firmware with untethered jailbreak – from this moment on your hands won’t be trembling when you’ll accidentally see that the device’s battery is almost zero. As the new solution is untethered there’s no need to connect Apple’s gadget to the computer each time it powers down or reboots. Forget about redsn0w tethered boot (at least till the iOS 6 release).
But if you have recently update iOS 5.1.1 to the build 9B208 on iPhone 4 GSM you need to download Absinthe 2.0.2 and complete jailbreaking process.
And one more thing: you can stay on the most up to date firmware as long as you want. Just make sure that your automatic iTunes and iCloud updates are off.
Hackers won one more battle against fruit corporation. The HITB was supposed to make their community even stronger. Let’s see what they can do after WWDC 2012 takes place. As was rumored before it should bring new Retina display MacBooks and iOS 6. It’s logical to assume that that piece of code will be protected even stronger than previous issues. By releasing Absinthe 2.0 hackers community showed that previous exploits must be closed. We can be sure that pod2g and company should start searching for another kind of vulnerabilities than those that were used before. Take your popcorn with you, find and comfortable place and prepare to watch what the future holds.
Update: If Absinthe 2.0 not working the fix it here and enjoy.
