Good news iPad 2 and iPhone 4S owners, the untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for your device is now released. If you felt left out with the release of the iOS 5.0.1 Corona jailbreak only applies to A4 Apple devices, here’s the tool that will allow you to catch up.
Chronic Dev Team with combined efforts from @pod2g and the iPhone Dev Team just released Absinthe, which allows users to jailbreak A5 Apple devices running on iOS 5.0.1.
The supported A5 devices and firmware for Absinthe are:
- iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
- iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1
A word of note for iPhone 4S owners looking for a software-based carrier unlock. Tools for iOS 5.0.1 unlock are still buggy and the Dev Team recommends you to stay at iOS 5.
For now, Mac users can only enjoy this jailbreak but Windows and Linux version will come real soon.
Thanks StratoSpHere for the tip.
