  • 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 believe it was just to support that new build of 5.1.1 for iPhone 4 GSM.

      Don't run it from within the mounted DMG. Move it to your desktop (or wherever) first.

      Don't know if anyone has answered this for you yet but I use PkgBackup (BigBoss repo). It ain't exactly cheap at $8 but it works like a charm for all of my Cydia tweaks. The time it saves from having to remember/write down/not lose all those tweaks and set them back up how I had them is well worth the money. Best part: when you back up your phone you can keep a local copy of the tweak's info on your computer via iTunes. I highly recommend PkgBackup.

      Do you have an "active" anti-virus program on your machine? Try turning it off.

      You can do the above 2, except install cracked ipas

      Jailbreaking is not meant to install crack apps, so if that's what you're planning to do, it won't work

      But you can purchase paid apps and free apps on cydia

      You can buy and download apps from the app store/iTunes without jailbreaking. If you mean to activate the device for access with jailbreaking, then yes.

      Yes, you can download apps from Cydia after jailbreaking.
