  • 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 was agreeing with your comment about crybabies and haters.... I wasn't claiming that you was doing any of those I things, quite clearly...

      If you read my post properly you would have saw it wasn't targeted at you and was in response to you.

      Is it just me, or does anybody else think there's major structural problems with the jailbreak overall and that is why we haven't seen a Windows version yet?

      That's what happens when everyone is b******g about "where's the jb? damn it's taking too long" and the process gets rushed a little. Anyways...

      Not sure what the problem is. I ran a virtual machine of lion in VMware workstation and had no issues. Why bother waiting for the pc version?

      This is great news. A big "Thanks" to the Dream Team for making this possible and patiently waiting for the windows version. I know they do this for the challenge; just wish there was a way to donate to them for all the time and energy they put into this for all of us to enjoy a better iPhone or iPad.

      Thanks, again Team.

      Just my 2 cents, but yes I think the pressure from the JB community forced a premature release. If it works for you then congrats and if it doesn't work for you yet then sorry. I think they'll fix the OS X version before finishing the Windows version too. Just my opinion. Good job Dev team You successfully pwned the A5!

      I bet if you looked really hard you'd find the Donate button. I'm starting with pod2g's blog, but the entire Dev Team deserves a donation too.

      Guess it's time to donate the $30 I set aside for when this came out and to go put together an OSX VM image since it's not available for Windows yet.

      I feel so dirty downloading that .iso.

      so has anyone encountered a similar problem with the ipod app on the 4s as me?

      My ipod app doesnt seem to work properly. It wont play some songs half the time and every now and then it will go to a completely different song than what i have chosen, not even in the same playlist. Does anyone else have this issue? I've tried a few different things with no success but ill keep trying. If anyone has some info let me know. Ill update with a solution, if i come up with one, for anyone else that has the same issue.
