  • Absinthe 2.0 - iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Confirmed to Release May 25th

    Organizers of the Hack in the Box Security Conference just announced 1-day passes for May 25th for the HitBSecConf 2012, currently being held at the Okura Hotel in Amsterdam. It has been announced that pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team will be releasing Absinthe 2.0, the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 at the event.

    This was confirmed with the following tweet by the organizers of the HitBSecConf 2012:

    SPECIAL @chronicdevteam 1-day passes for #HITB2012AMS @ EUR699! Come see @pod2g @p0sixninja @planetbeing @nikias JAILBREAK LIVE
    For those of you who didnít already know about it, the HitBSecConf series takes place in Amsterdam, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia. It is an important event that is attended by security professionals from all around the world.

    As reported previously, members of the jailbreak ďdream teamĒ such as pod2g, MuscleNerd, planetbeing, p0sixninja, and nikias were supposed to be attending the event. The iOS hacker, pod2g, previously said that the release of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Apple TV was almost ready and set to release in just ďa matter of days.Ē He seemed to have tested and confirmed that his iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak works with most devices except for the Apple TV 3G.

    With that being said, it is suggested that he will be giving a live demonstration of the Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak during his presentation, followed by the release. The whole ordeal doesnít come as much of a surprise overall as the Chronic Dev Team alluded towards some jailbreak goodness during the event previously. According to the agenda on the HitBSecConf website, the dream teamís jailbreak session isnít scheduled to start until 11:30am CET (5:30am EST) in which the team will discuss the Corona jailbreak, followed by the session on the Absinthe jailbreak at 1:30am CET (7:30am EST). As of right now, the agenda hasnít been updated so it still says jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 rather than iOS 5.1.1.

    The event is easily one of the most anticipated events in the jailbreak community and we suggest you stick around to hear more news and information about Absinthe 2.0 as it is revealed.

      I downloaded the JB Absynthe 2.0.1 app balls out just did it without even doing a backup and all went well!. I was quite impressed with the JB and all of you here that assisted in the info on how and when to do it!.

      So Kudos to Celeron and all the rest I cant remember at the moment for the assistance!!!!!!

      Thank you all!!!

      Da Dev Convert, from PC to the Fruit :-)
      na I still use PC's aggressively, because that is my livelihood, and how I pay the bills, but Apple is still by far the best platform I have ever used!!!

      I have been fine on the Wi-Fi and Verizon 3G connection so far after doing the JB on an iPad 2 iOS 5.1.1 using Absynthe 2.0.1
      also just a tip, not really related to JB'ng I finally got my iPad to print on my Canon Pixma MG8220 wireless printer just update the firmware from 1.x.x to 3.x.x and you will be all good in the printing department. I am using the free App called Canon iEPP but you do need to to a Canon firmware Update. Be sure you follow the directions to a T, as in using the USB cable to do the transfer. It will put a 2nd copy of the USB printer in your devices and printers section, just delete it when finished with the update.

      this time, folks, be sure to dump your 5.1.1 blobs to cydia and tu. you may as well go ahead and personalize the custom fw too! just for kicks, you can also stitch a redsn0w blob into a sn0wbreeze ipsw. i don't know if saving blobs will do a5 devices any good, but it's better to be safe now rather than being pissed off later.
