  • 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.

      for the same reason nothing else is working; the servers are overloaded from everyone jailbreaking.

      For the last 3 hours I've tried every concievable way and step to get this to work and it fails every time on "waiting to reboot." It has sat there for up to 30 minutes doing absolutely nothing on a freshly restored phone. I've done every step and every iteration of steps to rectify this and it doesn't work. Multiple computers don't make a difference. What a complete waste of time. I haven't been jailbroken in about a year and this is not making me want to come back. Why the hell doesn't this work? We really need GeoHot back, this is ridiculous.

      I have, three times now. Hasn't worked and does the same thing every time. I had the lockdown error every time for the first 5 or 6 tries and now it's just sitting there saying it's waiting for it to reboot.

      backing up and restoring did make things a bit easier for me actually, in terms of icons, folders and things like bitesms settings.

      Are you on Windows? Try running the app as an admin. Right-click on the program and "run as administrator"
