The iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team have finally released the version 2.0 of Absinthe. With the help of this tool, untethered jailbreak can be accomplished on all A4 and A5 devices which have been upgraded to iOS 5.1.1. Naturally, all the iOS users have been desperately waiting for this tool since it lets them use Cydia and allows them to use unlimited extensions and apps apart from Apple’s App Store.
Here’s a simple tutorial to enable you to download and install Absinthe 2.0 and accomplish jailbreak on your iPhone, iPad and iPod via Mac. You can view a full list of devices which are supported by Absinthe 2.0 over here. Don’t forget to restore and back up all the data of your device before you start the jailbreak.
