Untethered Jailbreak For Your iOS 5.1.1 iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch Is Here

By Adrian Kingsley-Hughes

A lot of you have been asking for this … and now it’s finally here!

The Chronic Dev Team have today announced the release of Absinthe 2.0, a tool which offers users the ability to jailbreak most iOS devices running the latest iOS 5.1.1 update, including the third-generation iPad.

This jailbreak is untethered, which means that the jailbreak persists even after the device has been rebooted. A tethered jailbreak requires the devices to be connected to a computer and jailbroken again if it is rebooted.

Absinthe 2.0 can jailbreak all iPhones from the iPhone 3GS onward, as well as third- and fourth-generation iPod touch devices. It can also jailbreak all iPads except the latest 16GB iPad 2, although support for this is planned.

Note that to use this jailbreak tool your device MUST be running iOS 5.1.1.

The jailbreak process is simple.

  1. Connect your iDevice to your computer using a cable, fire up iTunes and make a backup of it by right clicking on your device name under the Devices menu and clicking Back Up.
  2. Once the backup is complete, wipe your device by going Settings >General >Reset >Erase all Content and Settings.
  3. LaunchAbsinthe 2.0.
  4. Click on Jailbreak, and then wait!
  5. Once the jailbreak process is completed, go back to iTunes and restore your backup from earlier. Right click on your device name under the Devices menu in the left panel of iTunes and click Restore from Back Up… then select the latest backup.

Here are the download links for Absinthe 2.0:

If your device is currently jailbroken using a tethered jailbreak then you can turn this into an untethered jailbreak by downloading and installing the Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether package, which is available via Cydia.
