  • Chronic Dev Team Releases Absinthe 2.0


    *UPDATE*
    Absinthe 2.0.1 is out fixing a hang up that occurred for in certain situations for some users. Get it here.


    The Chronic Deve Team released Absinthe 2.0 today as promised. Let the jailbreaking begin.

    The Absinthe jailbreak tool supports the following devices:

    • iPad 1, iPad 2 (2,1—2,2—2,3 ) iPad third generation (3.1—3,2—3,3)
    • iPhone (2,2—3,1—4,1)
    • Support for the newer 32nm iPad 2 (iPad2,4) will be added later.
    As usual the jailbreak instructions are as follows:

    1. Make a backup of your device in iTunes by right clicking on your device name under the ‘Devices’ menu and click ‘Back Up’.
    2. Once your backup is complete return to your device and go to Settings – General – Reset – Erase all Content and Settings. This will make the jailbreak process much faster.
    3. Open Absinthe and be sure you are still connected via USB cable to your computer.
    4. Click ‘Jailbreak’ and wait…. just be patient and do not disconnect your device.
    5. Once jailbroken return to iTunes and restore your backup from earlier. Right click on your device name under the ‘Devices’ menu in the left panel of iTunes and click ‘Restore from Back Up…’ then select the latest backup you created before. (restoring this backup will return all the content previously on your device ie, apps, photos, etc.)
    Enjoy the jailbreak and make sure to let @pod2g, @MuscleNerd, or any other member of the Chronic Dev Team know of any problems. Also, make a donation to show your support. Remember these guys do all of this work pro bono.

    As of now the Chronic Dev Team servers don't appear to be going into analeptic shock, so downloads should be fairly smooth.

      It doesn't work on my MBP, my parents' iMac, or in Windows no matter what I do. It's worthless and broken, gives me the same "waiting for reboot" error no matter what I do. The command line version just crashes every time in the same place too. GeoHot needs to come back because his jailbreaks were never complete failures like this. I'm tired of sitting here waiting for a jailbreak to work for 4 hours now. This is ridiculous. Glad I didn't waste money "donating" to them. I've donated on every jailbreak in the past, but those actually worked.

      Yep, same issue here. I assume it's because Cydia is so slammed. Sucks b/c I can't get PkgBackup to get my phone set back up.

      Im sure closing it won't damage the iPod

      I didn't used absinthe because I though I had to let you guys act as guinea pigs and test absinthe first lol
