  • 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.

      My 4th gen Ipod touch is on firmware 5.1 with a tethered jailbreak. Should I update to 5.1.1 and then run Absinthe 2.0 to rejailbreak? or can I run the Robby Racoon untetherer and then update and be fine? Any info would be nice.

      Your guess is correct. Always happens when a new jailbreak is released. It will calm down in a day or two.

      Same thing here. Did restore will see what happens now. Will let u know.

      OK to all the people with iPad 3, i had problems - what fixed it for me was the following:

      Go to itunes, update to 5.1.1 then click on resore (that mike take a while) when the factory settings are restored (the screen where it asks you for location settings) just open Absinthe 2.0 and run it, then do a restore from your back up.

      Thats what worked for me
