  • 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 didn’t 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 “dream team” 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 “a matter of days.” 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 doesn’t 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 team’s jailbreak session isn’t 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 hasn’t 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.

      Has it been confirmed they WILL release the JB?

      HITB still says
      We told you over the weekend that the untethered jailbreak for iOS devices running iOS 5.1.1 is dropping this week. The hacker who’s been spearheading the upcoming jailbreak, pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team, confirmed that the jailbreak was nearly done and arriving in a “matter of days.”

      Coincidentally, the Chronic Dev Team will be presenting at the annual Hack in the Box (HITB) conference this week in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since the 5.1.1. jailbreak is expected to drop this week, we’re placing bets on a release this Friday during the team’s keynote.
      So although they think they will it has not been confirmed.

      I thought HITB was to expensive at €699 for a 2 day pass - now they want that for 1 day? And the one day pass means you will miss MN talking this afternoon.

      And that is not counting air fare and whatever they spent getting there. Shows you were the Money is. My last vacation cost avg 3,500.00 and that was driving about 1,100 miles 1 way.

      If i go to 5.1.1 I'll do a fresh restore. But I doubt I'll go to that.

      I may not either. Not wanting to hijack the thread but it's kinda related... If we decide to not update to 5.1.1 and Apple puts out a new update and stops signing 5.1.1,will we then be stuck on 5.0.1?

      may i ask for the reason why numbers of ppl are not willingly to go for 5.1.1? I heard that 5.1.1 has much better battery management, especially on the 4s, doesn't it?
