  • 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.

      can't wait to JB my The New iPad.

      only bummer is that apple is working on a fix for the iTunes store - large library problem, and will likely close the hole when they release the iOS fix (a fix that I REALLY want - having to ditch my library to browse the store sucks).

      Oh well can't have everything. I want the JB more.

      Just got my iPad 2 replaced by apple care. The replacement has no shsh saved my old one had blobs saved since iOS 4.x Does anyone know if something messes up later on will I always be able to restore back to 5.1.1? I know there's a way to downgrade A5 devices to 5.0.1 with shsh blobs.

      YES! Finally. I've been jailbreak-less since I got a new iP4 and AT&T updated it to 5.1.1.

      Yes, that's the latest firmware. You can run Tinyumbrella to save the 5.1. 1 SHSH

      Is this over the course of 2 days or is there suppose to be a PM in there?

      even if you don't go to 5.1.1, you can still grab those blobs for your phone. i've never been on 5.1.1, but i grabbed the blobs from cydia just in case . nevertheless, the new jb - which hasn't even been released - isn't for my 3gs anyway. i'm so tempted to upgrade to 4s, but i'm hoping the new iphone x is worth waiting for. then again, i said that when the 4 came out. ok, you talked me into it; i'm getting the x!

      On the a5 devices I think so. But save your shsh tickets while you're on 5.0.1 with redsn0w, then update to 5.1.1 and then save those shsh tickets via redsn0w (I'm not sure if it is updated for 5.1.1 so somebody will have to answer that or look it up). Then you can go back to 5.0.1, rejb and then if apple releases a new fw you'll be able to downgrade or upgrade to whatever blobs you have saved. If I'm wrong somebody please correct me so I don't mess this guy up. If you're on A4 device just plug into tiny umbrella now and it'll save the blobs for whatever fw apple is signing now so that won't be a problem. Whatever method just make sure you save your shsh/aptickets (blobs) right now and you should be fine. Just remember if you're on 5.0.1 on an a5 device then use redsn0w to save blobs for 5.0.1 before you update to 5.1.1 (to save those blobs).

      I'm sure it was an honest mistake and people have already pointed it out. No need to call him names over it...that's just immature.
