Another crazy update, this time via pod2G’s blog. This is a direct quote from his blog but it says we should be able to free our devices in a matter of hours. That means this is dropping today!! Thank you so much guys! It appears that a tool named Absinthe created by the Chronic Dev Team will install this new untethered jailbreak on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2! He clearly states that “the chance your break something is really small”. The team has been working night and day to make sure this jailbreak goes down perfectly, but as you all know there are always a few little bugs. Should go down smoothly for the most part. Be sure to keep tabs here to find out more info once the jailbreak is released! Check out the blog posting below!
UPDATE: THE JAILBRAKE APP HAS BEEN RELEASED! DOWNLOAD IT BELOW OR FROM http://greenpois0n.com/

Hello dear readers,
I know the wait was long, too much long, but it’s about to end! You’d be able to free your iPhone in some hours.
A tool named Absinthe and developped by the Chronic Dev Team will install the untether on your device. Also the iPhone Dev Team will release a CLI (command line) tool to help diagnose issues and repair things if it goes wrong.
This is a little scary I know, but the chance you break something is really small, since we made lots of tests to verify the process on different devices. But it is the first time we use the backup / restore functions of iTunes to install software, and there are maybe things we are not aware of.
As you already know, different security researchers put a log of energy to work out the different issues we had to install the untether on new devices.
Thus, a unified PayPal account was opened so that everyone who worked on the A5 exploits will receive a fair split of your contributions. Here is the link : contribute
As usual, contributions are not needed but are appreciated by developpers. By the way, thank you very much again for everyone who already participated. This is real nice.
Here is the complete list of Absinthe supported devices :
- iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
- iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1
