Untethered Jailbreak iPhone 4S & iPad 2 on iOS 5.0 to 5.0.1 with Absinthe [DOWNLOAD LINK]

The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners waited patiently, then they waited some more, and finally after a little more waiting welcomed the Absinthe jailbreak software to the community. Produced by the famous Chronic Development Team, and supported by the conjoined efforts of Pod2g and the iPhone Dev Team, Absinthe offers users the ability to jailbreak iOS 5 and 5.0.1 into an untethered state.

The supported devices and firmware for Absinthe are:

  • iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
  • iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1
The greenpois0n blog is under heavy load... because it's indeed out !

Here is the download link of Chronic Dev Team's Absinthe :

Happy Cydia !


  • Camera roll will be empty if the jailbreak is incomplete. Rerun the app once to fix, and then another time to complete jb.
  • If the Absinthe webclip shows "Error establishing a database connection", please go to Settings, turn on VPN and wait instead.
  • The VPN connection will give an error. This is normal. A reboot should happen a few moments after the error.
  • Just reboot and redo the jailbreak if you have problems.
  • When jailbreaking: Do not have a passcode set. Do not have your own VPN setup (Absinthe needs to setup its own).
  • If Absinthe crashes, reboot your DEVICE and try again.
  • Toggle VPN only AFTER Absinthe says it's done, or it will not work. VPN SHOULD error and then reboot soon. If it does not, rerun Absinthe!
  • It appears that some users are having a problem when launching the Absinthe app installed on their device, which returns an "error establishing a database connection".

    We have a fix for that…

    iOS hacker PlanetBeing who helped develop the jailbreak tweeted a simple fix for the "error establishing a database connection". Apparently, all you need to do is go to Settings > Network > VPN > ON.

    The VPN connection will most likely give an error and your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 should reboot shortly after. Once it's rebooted, try launching the Absinthe webclip again.

  1. The better account currently in jailbreaking is the adeptness to about-face an iPhone 4 in to a adaptable Wi-Fi hotspot.
