Jailbreak iPhone 4S/iPad 2 Using GreenPois0n Absinthe [Mac] [Tips and Tricks]


The wait is finally over. Chronic DevTeam has just released GreenPois0n Absinthe for Mac, which allows you to jailbreak your iPhone 4S and iPad 2. 

Supported devices and firmwares

  • iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0 or either 4S version of 5.0.1
  • iPad 2 WiFi, CDMA and GSM  running iOS 5.0.1

NOTE: if you need to unlock , stay at iOS 5.0

NOTE: 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.

NOTE: No OTA updates

How to:

1. Download Absinthe - updated version  ( mirror )

2. Connect your iPhone 4S or iPad 2

3. Click Jailbreak

4. Wait a few minutes.

NOTE: if you’re iDevice gets stuck at ‘waiting to reboot’, don’t worry. You will need to manually reboot your iDevice

5. After reboot, you will see a new Absinthe icon on your SpringBoard. Tap on that to get Cydia.

5.1 It will probably say ‘Error Establishing a Database Connection’. Don’t worry. Unplug your iPhone, go to Settings.app and turn on VPN.

6. After you get that VPN error, your iPhone will reboot and your iPhone/iPad will be fully jailbroken.

Thanks to everybody involved in this jailbreak ….
