It looks like hiring even Nicholas Allegra didn’t work for Apple as jailbreaking community has done it again (Bravo!). Yes, the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is now a reality thanks to GreenpoisOn Absinthe which has been pushed out to the public just now. Absinthe offers untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0.x (9A405 & 9A406) and iPad 2 (Wifi/GSM/CDMA) running iOS 5.0.1. This untethered jailbreak is a result of the great effort by the Chronic Dev team, Pod2g and iPhone Dev team.
Here’s a complete step by step tutorial for the untethered jailbreak of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.x:
Update to iOS 5.0.1 or Download the iOS 5.0.1 ipsw for iPad 2/iPhone 4S (skip this step if you already on iOS 5.0.1)
Download GreenpoisOn Absinthe For Mac OR Download GreenpoisOn Absinthe For Windows (it would be available shortly).
Connect your iPhone 4S/iPad 2 with the computer, unzip and run the downloaded GreenpoisOn Asbinthe file.
Click the “Jailbreak” button which will appear on the screen and start following the simple straight forward steps that would appear on the GreenpoisOn.
Once done, you will be greeted by an Absinthe icon on the Home screen. Tapping this icon will take you to the GreenPois0n’s website and your iDevice will get restarted. Upon restart, the glorious Cydia icon will be there to greet and welcome you to the wonderful world of jailbreaking.
Congrats! You are done. Enjoy!
Note: GreenpoisOn’s website is currently overwhelmed due to the extremely high volume of incoming traffic, so have patience!
