iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak With Absinthe

Here’s an instruction for iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak With Absinthe

NOTE: Please make sure you take a full back up of your device before beginning. The Absinthe program uses a new jailbreak technique, and although no problems are expected, the development teams waive any responsibility if anything does go wrong.

You should perform next steps in order to perform iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak

Note: If your iPhone is tethered jailbroken it is no matter just follow steps below.

Step 1: Download the compressed Absinthe package. Extract all files and run the executable file. Download link in the end.

Step 2: Connect your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S to your Mac or Windows computer using a USB cable and launch the Absinthe tool and you will be presented with a GUI.

Step 3: You will notice a button on the right hand side of the Absinthe program which says ‘Jailbreak’. Once your device is connected, click that button to begin the process of  iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak. What looks like a restore will begin on your device with the words ‘Restoring in Progress’ being present. Please do not touch the device, the process can be quite time consuming.

Step 4: Once the restore is completed, unlock your iPhone / iPad and look for the ‘Absinthe’ icon which will now be located on your device’s Springboard. Tapping the icon will momentarily launch the GreenPois0n website, before causing your device to reboot. After the reboot after iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak is completed, the aforementioned Absinthe icon will now be replaced by a beautiful brown Cydia one.

NOTE: If you are receiving an ‘Error establishing connection’ message at this stage, exit to your Springboard and be patient. The website servers are experiencing a tremendous increase in traffic so just keep trying to launch the Absinthe ‘app’. Alternatively, as a quick fix you can head over to the SETTINGS > GENERAL > NETWORK > VPN entry and then toggle VPN to ‘on’. This will cause an error message to be generated, which will reboot your device when dismissed. You can then launch the Absinthe icon again.

Step 5: The steps are all over. Your device is booted into a jailbroken state. You can now launch Cydia and follow through the process of setting up your favorite tweaks and extensions after iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak.

As you can see, the process has been made as simple as possible using this new powerful tool. The steps ands relatively easy and there isn’t much work involved, but remember to make that important back up before iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak.

iPhone Dev team has released a new version of Redsn0w using pod2G’s iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak iPad, which finally allows iPad 1 users to perform an untethered jailbreak.

In this guide, we will take you through the step by step procedure to perform an iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak iPad using Redsn0w.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • Redsn0w 0.9.10b5c iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak iPad does not support iPad 2 currently, but pod2G is working hard on it. We’ll keep you posted.
  • If you’ve jailbroken your iPad then you can use jailbreak apps such as AptBackup, PkgBackup or xBackup from Cydia to take a backup of all the jailbreak apps and tweaks so you can reinstall them easily after successfully jailbreaking your iPad rather then installing them individually. However, if you’re moving from iOS 4.x to iOS 5, it may be a good idea to reinstall the jailbreak apps to avoid compatibility issues.
  • Please ensure you are running latest version of iTunes i.e. iTunes 10.5 or later.
  • Known issue: iBooks keeps crashing after jailbreaking iPad using this method. Dev team is working hard to fix the issue.

Update: Please note that some readers are reporting issue with iBooks after iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak iPad.

You can follow these step-by-step instructions to jailbreak your iPad 1 with the assumption that you’ve already updated your iPad to iOS 5.0.1 (please note Settings –> General –> About –> Version should be 5.0.1):

jailbreak iPad 2 using Absinthe 3

The new jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S has been recently released and we wrote about that before. Also we promised to present you how to guide where you can perform untethered iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S with Absinthe jailbreaking tool.

This jailbreaking process is very easy but first you we give you devices that support this jailbreak:

- iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1

- iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)

Advice: backup all your data from your Device.

How to jailbreak iPad 2 and iPhone 4S using Absinthe tool:

Step 1: Update your iPad 2 or iPhone 4s to current iOS 5.0.1 using iTunes.

Step 2: Download Absinthe 0.1.2-2 to your computer and extract the archive. Make sure your iDevice is connected to computer. If so run Absinthe.

Waiting for device to finish booting.

Preparing jailbreak data…

Step 4:  Almost done – just unlock the screen if necessary, than tap the “jailbreak” icon to finish. (It might be on different home screen, so don’t give up looking!)

Unlock your iPad. The icon you should look for is the Absinthe icon and not “Jailbreak”, it may not be on the first home screen page so you’re better off just searching for it using Spotlight.

Step 5: Confirm you are on jailbreken iPad 2 or iPhone 4s by searching for the Absinthe icon on your iPad 2/iPhone 4s screen after reboot. Locate it and Tap on the Absinthe icon and it will load you the GreenPois0n site. Wait for a while and then after a minute or two and ofter that your iPad 2 will be rebooted automatically. Once your iPad 2 is back ON, the Cydia icon will be on your screen.

It was really easy right? Now your iPad 23 or iPhone 4S is jailbroken and running iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5. If all future jailbreaking tools were like Absinthe tool, our life would be much easier.

Retina Display On iPad 3 Will Definitely Be

retina display on ipad 3

I’m sure that you sick and tired of millions rumors regarding iPad 3. A lot of them predict different features and improvements of brand new gadget from Apple company. Also a lot of rumors were about iPad 3 release too. But as was announced by Apple the release of third-gen iPad would be on March 7.

I don’t want to talk about future processor or price or even Siri on iPad 3. I decide to talk about Retina display on iPad 3. Many photos were leaked in the net that showed various displays and these screens titled as Retina.

One of the popular websites has got hold of one of retina display on iPad 3 and look at it under a microscope in order to see whether it is really an ultra-high resolution Retina display.

As expected, physically, the supposed retina display on iPad 3 is exactly the same size as the existing iPad 1 and iPad 2 display at 9.7″ in diagonal, and looks very much the same to the naked eye.

But, when they compared the retina display on iPad 3 to one from an iPad 2 under a microscope, the real difference in resolutions gets readily clear, with the iPad 3 display’s pixels appearing to be one-quarter the size of those found on the iPad 2.

retina display on ipad 3

Due to the fact that we just had a raw iPad 3 display without any method to power it, taking high quality pictures of the pixels was really difficult. Nevertheless, even with the somewhat poor lighting, it is simple to make out the pixels on each display (made up of green, red and blue elements). They highlighted a cluster of 4 pixels (2×2) from the iPad 2 in order to compare it to the same area on the iPad 3. On the iPad 3, the same cluster was occupied by 16 pixels (4×4) – just twice the resolution in each direction.

Certainly, with the Retina display on iPad 3 now a cert, attention will turn to additional features – such as the camera – which will probably be improved to go with the new display. Rumours and leaks have suggested either the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S camera will be used, but even if this does not become the case, one would believe the Apple will give its tablet users a true reason to frequent the numerous image social networks floating around.

Let’s wait a while till iPad 3 release on March 7 and we will know the whole true. However I think that iPad 3 will definitely have Retina display, or we must wait for iPad 4? And Will iOS 5.1 bring new features?

The Untethered Absinthe Jailbreak for iPad 2 Is Here

Great news for all iPad 2 and iPhone 4S users, the Chronic Dev Team with iPhone Dev team and famous hacker Pod2g has recently released untethered Absinthe jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S on iOS 5 and 5.0.1.

I’m sure that you have been waiting for this for the long time. Absinthe jailbreak wes made for such devices as iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1 and iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406).

absinthe jailbreak for mac windows and linux

A considerable amount of effort has been put into ensuring Absinthe is of the highest possible quality, but be aware that unforeseen bugs may exist due to this being the first time the development teams have used the backup / restore process within iTunes to install software, in other words; the jailbreak process is something which is alien to all. If you are an iPhone 4S owner who is ultimately looking to achieve software based unlock, it is also worth heeding the advice given by the iPhone Dev-Team and remaining on iOS 5.0 if possible.

We can’t emphasize more on the fact for iPhone 4S users who are willing to unlock their devices on iOS 5. It’s a safe bet that you do not update to iOS 5.0.1 in any case as the unlock tool in development will not be compatible with iOS 5.0.1 upon release, hence stay on iOS 5 if possible since the original release of iOS 5 which was pushed out in October is not being signed by Apple anymore, therefore you cannot downgrade your iPhone 4S to iOS 5.0.1 along with your sacrificed baseband.

Unethered Absinthe jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S is very easy to perform. It is really quick jailbreak.

Just download Absinthe for Mac, Windows or Linux and begin jailbreaking process. The tutorial will be soon and you can follow our guide. Be not far from us and jailbreak iPad 2 or iPhone 4S with untethered Absinthe jailbreak.
