iPhone 4S and iPad 2 ‘Absinthe’ Jailbreak To Be Released Today

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 ‘Absinthe’ Jailbreak To Be Released Today

Earlier today, iOS 5.0.1 hacker extraordinaire pod2g said that the long anticipated iPad 2 and iPhone 4S jailbreak was “almost ready to pop”. Considering he’s been promising the jailbreak any time now for a couple weeks, though, what does “almost ready to pop” really mean?

It means keep hitting “refresh” on your browser. pod2g has just written a new blog post, and he’s now promising the jailbreak in just a few hours, courtesy of a tool called Absinthe.

Warning: Despite Imminent iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak, Stick To iOS 5.0 If You Want To Unlock Your iPhone 4S

Warning: Despite Imminent iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak, Stick To iOS 5.0 If You Want To Unlock Your iPhone 4S

Yesterday, we told everyone who was still rocking a jailbreak under iOS 4.3.3 (mainly iPad 2 users) to upgrade to the soon-to-be-jailbroken-for-A5-devices iOS 5.0.1 now, before Apple releases iOS 5.1, which closes the vulnerability. If you don’t, you might lose your chance for a jailbreak for good.

Here’s the caveat though. If you’re on an iPhone 4S and if you want to carrier unlock it down the line, don’t upgrade. iOS 5.0.1 has a different baseband than iOS 5, and while the Dev Team has an exploit for iOS 5 that they hope will lead to an unlock, they don’t know when or even if they’ll be able to crack open the later update.

Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 4S Could Still Be Weeks Away

Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 4S Could Still Be Weeks Away

Despite a message posted to Twitter by Pod2g earlier this week, suggesting an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S was less than a week away from public release, a new blog post detailing the iOS hacker’s process indicates the exploit could still be weeks away yet.

Pod2g has revealed that his new exploit requires a developer account to inject the necessary files to your device, and until he finds a way around this, the hack will not see a public release.

The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Have Been Jailbroken Under iOS 5!

While Apple’s latest gadgets are a must-have for some, they’re not all that useful for iOS jailbreakers. The company’s new iPhone 4S, along with the iPad 2, cannot be jailbroken when running iOS 5. But thanks to the iPhone Dev-Team, it won’t be long before you’re using Cydia on them.

Jailbreakme.com Is Dead, Long Live Jailbreaks.me

Jailbreakme.com Is Dead, Long Live Jailbreaks.me

Up until now, the only way to jailbreak an iPad 2 was to be running iOS 4.3.3 and use the JailbreakMe v3 hack, which was accomplished by going to jailbreakme.com with Mobile Safari and then letting it do its thing.

Well, no longer. The Dev Team’s MuscleNerd reports that Jailbreakme.com is dead. Don’t stress too much, though, because jailbreaks.me will be picking up the slack.
