iPhone Dev Team Releases a Command Line Interface Tool for iOS 5.1.1 Untether
The iPhone Dev Team has released a command line interface tool, otherwise known as a CLI tool, as an alternative to the recently released Absinthe 2.0 untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak. The CLI tool is capable of performing the same jailbreak that one can achieve using Absinthe 2.0, but the difference is that this tool is completely command line based. The CLI tool is for more advanced users who prefer to have more control over the whole jailbreak process. Most people should be sticking to the Absinthe 2.0 GUI tool and it is advised that you use this tool only if you know what you are getting into.
The CLI tool works for both Mac and Windows machines and can be downloaded from the MuscleNerd's link. According to MuscleNerd, the CLI tool is best used with a fresh installation of iOS 5.1.1 so we’d recommend following his advice.
Today is a good day for the jailbreak community as the untethered jailbreak was released for iOS 5.1.1. Users now have the option of using Absinthe 2.0 and the iPhone Dev Team’s CLI tool.

Not a bad idea. When I jail-broke my original iPhone, it actually forced me to learn a little basic UNIX. Because of jailbreaking, as it was in the beginning, I am now pretty UNIX savvy and can even write my own bash scripts. I say keep it this way for a jailbreaks.

I was always a fan of jailbreakme.com. Easy as hell, didn't require any software or a computer, and best of all, you could jailbreak the phones in the Apple store.

Bad idea !. I can already hear the complaints, " thanks dev team, you screwed up my device " !!. Who cares how much input we put into the jailbreaking process, just as long as we get the result !

im guessing this will help you learn how the jailbreak process is done via command line.. i'll try this later on my girls iphone4, i already updated and jailbroke mines earlier!!

Bus error: 10
I take it that's the same problem Absinthe has with a factory unlocked iphone 4 s when it complains it can't connect to lockdown and is aborting?
An iPhone 4 yields this error:
/Users/eric/cinject/cinject/test.c:377: failed assertion `restore(dev, RESTORE_OPTION_NONE, NULL)==CINJ_STATUS_OK'
Abort trap: 6
Who the heck is eric?
