  • 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!

      I'm waiting for the server to come back up. I get the white screen at the icon at the moment due to the traffic.

      Got three hours to kill at the airport. Hope it's out before boarding. Need some entertainment on the plane.

      So I'm gonna go ahead and assume you can't help me.

      Heres how it is. It says plug in your device

      So I plug in my device
      And once youve backed up hit jailbreak. I can't do that cause it's not a clickable button. Anyone else having issues?

      Guys. I've several posts about this issue and no solution. I'm also stuck at "beginning jailbreak, this may take a while..." I stopped it once and tried again, same thing. Any ideas? I'm plugged straight into my imac.

      I don't believe I ever set up a firewall. Sorry, I'm not proficient in mac. Is there somewhere that I need to do this? And, by "make sure ports are open," to what ports are you referring?

      Thanks.
