Few days back, the Chronic-Dev Team has released an updated version of their iPhone 4S and iPad 2G untethered jailbreak tool Absinthe v0.4 for Mac, Windows and Linux. The latest version of Absinthe – Absinthe v0.4 adds support for Mac OS X 10.5 (Intel + PPC), adds consistency check on startup to make sure required files are in place and the Windows version fixes a bug in payload generator that might cause a crash. To untethered jailbreak your iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1 firmware or your Wi-Fi iPad 2, GSM iPad 2 and CDMA iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 firmware, just download Absinthe v0.4, unzip the file, then install the exploit on your iOS A5 iDevice with one click of a button.

Untethered Jailbreak iPad 2G Using Absinthe v0.4

  • Step 1: Download the latest version of Absinthe – Absinthe v0.4 for Mac, Windows or Linux.
  • Step 2: Double click to extract the absinthe-mac-0.3.zip or absinthe-win-0.4.zip or absinthe-linux-0.4.tar.gz archive to any folder of your choice and launch the Absinthe application. (Windows users launch it in XP compatibility mode with Admin previlages if you are facing any issues)
  • Step 3: As prompted by Absinthe, connect your iPad 2G to your computer via USB. Also make sure to take a backup of your iDevice before proceeding with the untethered jailbreak of your iPad 2G.
  • Step 4: Click the Jailbreak button to begin the untethered jailbreak of your iPad 2G.
  • Step 5: Absinthe will take some time to untethered jailbreak your iPad 2G and during this process it takes you through several steps of the jailbreak: sending initial data, waiting for reboot, waiting for device to finish booting, preparing jailbreak data and sending payload data.
  • Step 6: Once the untethered jailbreak of your iPad 2G is done, you will be informed that the jailbreak is ‘Almost done’.
  • Step 7: Slide to unlock your iPad 2G home screen, find the Absinthe icon and tap it to complete your jailbreak.

If you have correctly followed the above steps, you will be successful in untethered jailbreaking your iPad 2G using Absinthe v0.4. But in case if you see a “Error establishing a database connection” message, keep trying to launch the Absinthe app after a little while. Alternatively you can go to Settings > General > Network > VPN and turn on VPN. You will get a configuration error, but after a minute your device will reboot with Cydia installed on the Springboard.
