Rejoice iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners. Today you can finally jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 thanks to the A5 Jailbreak Dream Team.
The new Absinthe Jailbreak tool allows you to perform a untethered jailbreak on the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. This covers all models of Apple’s latest phone and tablet, and works on the newest iOS 5.0.1 software release.
By joining forces, pod2G, The Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team were able to get around a number of Apple walls and locks to free your iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
The new tool is called Absinthe, and is only available for the Mac, but Windows and Linux versions are coming.
You can download the Absinthe iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak tool from greenpois0n.com, but be warned that you may have trouble getting to the page due to high demand. Keep trying and you will eventually get in.
I am in the process of jailbreaking my iPhone 4S as I share this news, and will soon walk you through the iPhone 4S jailbreak process. This will take place on a Mac, but should be very similar on Windows.
Before you jailbreak, be sure to read these 5 concerns, and know that we aren’t responsible if you break your iPhone or iPad.
If you are OK with these cautions, go ahead and jailbreak your device. I look forward to hearing about your favorite jailbreak apps and jailbreak tweaks.
If you wish to thank the dream team of iPhone hackers, you can donate to a joint fund that will be split between the members.
