Apple has released iPhone 5 and iOS 6 together. Of course most developers are working on jailbreaking the iOS 6 as well as tweaks. It should take more time to complete the untethered jailbreak since now we only have tethered jailbreak.
One of our famous developers, pod2g has confirmed that he is not working on jailbreaking iOS 6 since he is focusing on his work but he might do in in the future. Without his anticipation, it would be problem for the update of Absinthe. This tool has been used to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1.
Very soon after the release of iOS 6 for all iDevices. We are lucky to hear that our hackers have managed to get it jailbroken but it is tethered jailbreak for A4 device only. You can follow the instruction below.
Absinthe is a great tool to jailbreak iOS devices. If you own an iDevices, I am pretty sure that this tool is very convenience to jailbreak them. Now this tool is already in 2.0.4 version already. It can be used on Windows, Mac or Linux. You can find the download links below.
Download Absinthe 2.0.4:
Very soon after the release of iOS 6.0, just about 24 hours, we have sensed the signal of jailbreak tool for A4 devices already. Thanks to our famous iPhone hacker, MuscleNerd tweeted that there is tool to tethered jailbreak but Cydia is not currently working but it should not be hard to overcome this challenge.
MuscleNerd previously has released their Absinthe tool to untethered jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 for all iDevices. However jailbreaking iOS 6.0 is still unclear since this latest OS is still available for developers so Apple will counter the jailbreak tool with more update. We do not expect the release of jailbreak tool for public for iOS 6 beta at the moment.
Stay tunes for more update.
The Chronic Dev Team has made Absinthe to untethered jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 for all iDevices including iPhone 4S and iPad 3. Recently there were almost one million devices was untethered jailbreaked meanwhile iPad 3 takes up to 210,000 units.
Absinthe has been in fact the first tool able to jailbreak working on the new iPad and this has also contributed to its success. The team has also updated many times the version 2.0.2 of Absinthe to provide maximum stability and optimize it for the latest build of iOS 5.1.1 for iPhone 4 by Apple yesterday.
These numbers show that the jailbreak of the iDevice is increasingly popular among users, as demonstrated by the impressive data upload recorded by Cydia.
Recently Dev-Team has just released Redsn0w to another version of 0.9.11b4. This tool will allow you to tethered jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G and 3G. Feel free to find the download links below.
Of course developing jailbreak tool won’t be easy and it does take time and high concentration. In this regard, pod2g, our famous iPhone hacker, has something to do with his fans by answering to most asked questions which received by email and Twitter.
Jailbreaking iOS is what most of iOS users want. Now it is impossible to tethered jailbreak iOS 5.1 but at least pod2g, our famous iOS hacker, tweeted the progress of jailbreaking this latest iOS version. However it seems like it is not good news since it will take one or even two months.
If you want to enjoy using jailbreaking stuffs, do not update your iDevice to iOS 5.1 till there is an official tool to jailbreak this version.
To provide a steady jailbreaking tool for A5 idevice, iPhone 4S and iPad 2, the developers has managed to update Absinthe to version 0.4. This tool can be used on Windows, Mac and Linux. If you haven’t jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2, you can follow our guide here.
