  • 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.

      Best as I can figure, the Absinthe GUI won't do it, but the details of the ATV jailbreak do exist. And, the firecore folks already have incorporated it into Seas0nPass. Thanks to both fine groups!

      okay ... all apps are working except one. not bad. now, let's see about this battery management thing. besides curiosity, that was my reason to move up from 5.0.1.

      You'll have to restore and try again, that's what a lot of people have done

      if anybody is receiving device not supported, apple released a new version of 5.1.1 (9B208)

      Absynthe is supporting (9B206). and thats why you are getting device not supported.

      download 9B206 use itunes and shift restore and re install 9B206 and it should work fine.

      it'll be a week or so before the jb functions more smoothly. in addition to the bugs in the absinthe software, cydia servers are taking big hits right now. demands are higher than normal, slowing things down. just have fun with trying to figure stuff out. get mad. get frustrated. kick the dog. it's all part of the jb experience, and you love it! otherwise, you'd go android

      There are lots of free apps and tweaks in Cydia and some you have to pay for, just like the official app store.

      you did not have to have airport to be able to print on IPAD2 (know that from experience) if your printer is a wifi set it up as network printer on open port (it will have that option when you are installing it) then you can use ANY device to print from it

      CYDIA isnt build to give you staff for free... there are ways, but I am not supporting them, some people had spend considerable amount of time on apps and they work should be rewarded.

      Check printer settings...

      Seriously? "according to jail breaking I am supposed to get apps for FREE"?

      Getting apps for free is NOT what jailbreaking is about.
