  • 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.

      It's obvious, apple won't let a single exploit be on different iOS versions.

      Use pkg to backup your tweaks? And sync your phone to iTunes to save all your apps

      Just watch them on YouTube, a lot better because they show you the tweak in use.

      K sweet! Thanks! I guess I'll just wait for the untethered 5.1.1 to make the jump now. Hope it's soon.

      The 5.1.1 has no significant advantages at all.

      - Better battery? My battery life is extremely good.
      - Camera button on lockscreen? I have no lockscreen.

      And they took one thing away in 5.1.1, homescreen shortcuts. Created a shortcut on my homescreen from Settings to check on my data usage. (Maybe there's a jailbreak for this that I don't know)

      All I've read everywhere is that it is for 5.1.1, as if 5.1 is a forgotten iOS. There's people still on 4.3! Lol

      Backup your data with iTunes. Then restore

      Just use the tweak "OpenBackup" From Cydia.Requires SSH.
      Do it Before you update and jailbreak.The rest of the instructions are in the app

      ok so i have ssh installed already on my iphone i believe.. so with openbackup i do this before i put the new jailbreak on and then restore it with the openbackup file..????

      correct me if i am wrong but wont openbackup just backuop your cydia stuff and not the apps on itunes???

      downloaded openbackuo and there are no instructions when you install the app.. if i am missing something please tell me..
