Yesterday was an amazing day for all the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners around the world. The A5 untethered jailbreak, which was being worked on for quite a while, was finally released to the public. Developed by the Chronic Dev-Team, the jailbreak tool was called Absinthe. However, due to certain difficulties, the tool was only released for Mac OS X users.
Earlier today, the CLI jailbreak tool was released for Windows users to untethered jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. It was released by the iPhone Dev-Team and requires you to use the command prompt in Windows to jailbreak your iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Now that’s not something a normal iDevice user would want to try.
We also told you about the recent tweet from @posixninja, which said that Absinthe for Windows will be released soon. Now, there’s another update from the developer who’s actually building the Windows version of Absinthe. If you have been following the whole Absinthe thing, then I’m pretty sure that you must have heard of @pimskeks (Nikias Bassen). He just tweeted that he’s currently running some tests with the tool and that it should be out soon!
So, folks, the wait is almost over! Absinthe for Windows will be released very soon! Could be in a few hours. Who’s waiting to untethered jailbreak their iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5 or 5.0.1?
