Now you can use Absinthe 2.0 to jailbreak your iOS 5.1.1 device and install Cydia, and best of all this is untethered. If you’re in a hurry, you just need to follow our 8 step guide below and you’re off and running in Cydia land. The jailbreak works on The New iPad 3, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, Apple TV 2 and iPod touch devices running iOS 5.1.1 as of today. Members of both the iPhone Dev-Team and the Chronic Dev-Team (now called the “Jailbreak Dream Team”) released Absinthe 2.0 today at the Hack in the Box conference in Amsterdam. A special thanks goes out to all the folks who worked on this hack including pimskeks, planetbeing, pod2g, and p0sixninja.
Note: If you get an error in Cydia at this time, don’t freak out. Due to the extremely popular demand, the servers at the Cydia repo are having some issues, and it should be back up shortly after the mad rush dies down.
iPad 1 – 2,1 – 2,2 – 2,3 – 3,1 – 3,2 – 3,3
iPhone 2,1 – 3,1 – 3,3 – 4,1
iPod 3,1 – 4,1
If you’ve already jailbroken your device using a tethered approach with RedSn0w running iOS 5.1.1 you can go “untethered” after you install Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether. Here’s how:
- Launch Cydia.
- Search for “Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether”
- Install and Reboot
You should not have any tethered issues going forward.
