  • 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.

      I was able to jailbreak my 4s but my question is.......did I do something wrong. I go into cydia and I get either "cannot locate package" or "cannot install" when I check any of the apps.

      JB worked fine on both my iPhone 4 and iPad 3.

      I can't download iFile, sbsettings, and others for either devices, gettings errors. Is this because they need to be updated or what?

      i am also Have tried to jailbreak my 4s multiple times now. Each time it has not worked. Keeps saying something went wrong, and to unplug and try again. I have done this at least a dozen times and have redownloaded the software multiple times now. Each time I extract the software, there is an encryption error with the _MACOSX folder so I dont know if this is the problem. If anyone has had any luck with a work around, it would be appreciated.[/QUOTE]

      please help me........................

      My new iPad 3 is compatible with the jailbreak tool, but neither the cydia or absinthe logo appears on my ipad like it isnt jailbroken. Any idea why that might be?

      iPad 3 troubles. Tried wiping, restoring, every combination.

      It goes through the whole process, and at last step on waiting for reboot, it says something went wrong after the long pause.

      Windows 7 64 bit (tried on two different computers)
