  • 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!

      What's the situation as far as iBooks go on jailbroke devices? I haven't heard anything in regards to iBooks 2 and the original jailbreak issues. It would be nice to get the iPad 2 on a jailbreak, but not if I can't use iBooks...

      Absinth is sticking on "Beginning jailbreak, this may take a while" Over 30 minutes the first time and I cut off iPhone and FQ absinthe. I restarted absinthe and the iPhone and absinthe said that it saw the previous JB didn't work and cleaned everything up.

      Not it is stuck again at "Beginning jailbreak, this may take a while" for 30 minutes. Any ideas what I can do to fix this?

      I just need to let loose of some cash and buy a Mac. The only reason I haven't is because my pc is still pretty good(spec wise). What's the used market for windows computers?? I wonder if I could get decent money for my used pc?

      So this one jailbreak uses all of the exploits that was found? It says that it uses both Corona's and 5 more. I thought they would keep a few to spare just in case they patch this, which the already did.

      Looks like going through a hub was the problem. Connected via direct USB and it looks to be working now.
