Okay so reports have flooded in that the long awaited jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is out. Well, it is out alright but still i wouldn’t suggest you to jailbreak right away. The jailbreak tool/GUI that has been released by Chronic Dev Team named “Absinthe” is currently not very stable. Has some issues and bugs that have to be taken care of, one of them being the “Error establishing a database connection”. There appears to be fix for it. As per MuscleNerd/iPhone Dev Team’s Blog, integrating it to redsn0w (a stable tool/GUI) will take a bit of time since bugs have to be resolved. Also the tool “Absinthe” which has been released is a MAC Only version, so the windows/PC users have to wait longer to get their devices jailbroken.
Absinthe currently supports:
- iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
- iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1
All those adventurous enough can download the MAC version of the tool from here. Our windows friends can wait for sometime or can grab a macbook and do it right away. Happy jailbreaking people.
