    Corona was just an untether for existing Jailbreaks, it is not a jailbreak itself. Absinthe 2 will be a new jailbreak available as a stand alone JB or, I believe, it will be incorporated in the next RedSn0w.

    Interestingly HITB have updated from 'Jailbreak will be released this week to:
    We told you over the weekend that the untethered jailbreak for iOS devices running iOS 5.1.1 is dropping this week. The hacker who’s been spearheading the upcoming jailbreak, pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team, confirmed that the jailbreak was nearly done and arriving in a “matter of days.”

    Coincidentally, the Chronic Dev Team will be presenting at the annual Hack in the Box (HITB) conference this week in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since the 5.1.1. jailbreak is expected to drop this week, we’re placing bets on a release this Friday during the team’s keynote.

    Make a backup in iTunes. Then restore to 5.1.1. Jailbreak with absinthe 2.0

    So I synch with iTunes, right-click my idevice's name, & select backup. Then I select 'restore' on the iTunes screen. Now....I do have apt backup. Should I use that FIRST and then do the previous-mentioned stuff OR.....should I dl the stuff ya'll mentioned first and THEN do the "backup" under my name and then select "restore" on the iTunes page? Sorry to be such a bother. You never would've guessed I'm a "virgin" to this sort of stuff.

    Any news on whether this will patch up iBooks or not? 'Cause I was crushed when I got my iPad (first gen) on 5.1 and found out that iBooks didn't work.

    After I do all that, then do I go to Cydia.com and update?

    Oh and will I have to re-purchase Cydia again to update the untethered jb via Absinthe 2.0?

    When you restore jailbreak with absinthe 2.0. Then use pkgbackup to get those tweaks back.

    Only use one of them. They're both basically the same thing.
