  • A5 Jailbreak is Live For OSX, Windows Coming Soon

    It's here. It's finally here!

    @P0sixninja (Joshua Hill)z tweeted minutes ago the A5 jailbreak is live, and it is available for download at www.greenpois0n.com. However, it seems the massive demand for the jailbreak has crushed the site's servers as repeated attempts to access the site returned an "Error establishing a database connection."

    Here is the download link courtesy of @pod2g. This circumvents the massive traffic that is likely drowning the greenpois0n blog. @p0sixninja has confirmed that the greenpois0n website has to load on the A5 device before the jailbreak can be triggered. He is fixing the problem, but in the meantime use the above link to download the Absinthe tool.

    The A5 jailbreak tool Absinthe reuses both Corona exploits "as well as like five others" according to @p0sixninja. The Chronic Dev team will be releasing a Command Line Tool along with the jailbreak to help diagnos any problems that crop up. The Jailbreak has been tested extensively, but as always there is no way to test for every possible error or conflict.

    Happy downloading!

      Just used CLI on windows for my iPad 2. Worked great. Took like 10 minutes and I was jail broke. From the videos I seen using absinthe on Mac, this process might be quicker? So for all you people complaining that there is no windows version just do some research because it's definitely possible and surprising easy to do on windows. http://www.idownloadblog.com/2012/01...-2-on-windows/

      So glad I still have my vmware install of osx that works =) .. jailbreak went extremely smooth, though the absinthe app threw an error about not being able to connect to the database.. despite that, it worked anyway..
