  • 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 sure windows will be available shortly. I can't imagine there being to much more they'd have to do to get the windows version released but I'm def no dev or coder. Great work guys. I do have a question though. Can I use my friends Mac to jb, set up as a New phone from a 5.0.1 restore, and then use my windows later to sync with iTunes or if I restore and jb with a Mac will I always have to sync with a Mac?

      Well we get the tools iH8sn0w releases for windows only, like the ability to downgrade on i4's and earlier devices before anyone else was able to. They'll take care of us shortly I'm sure.

      Everyone should donate at least 5 bucks. Their hard work and ethic is worth much much more. Besides if we had to pay for jailbreaks we would so y not donate. These guys are the next Steve Jobs and we lost a hero, but we are lucky to have these tech heros. You guys are my heros Thanx dinatintong $20

      Well this is very awesome indeed. But what was this I was hearing about SHSH BLOBS not having all that much effect at the moment? Doesn't this mean, once Apple has stopped signing 5.0.1....if someone's devices goes down hard and they require a re-jailbreak to fix it, they are back to SOL status...correct?
