Untethered Jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 with Greenpois0n Absinthe

Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic!

Finally the wait is over. The untethered jailbreak for A5 based devices running on iOS 5.0.1 is now available with a tool called Greenpois0n Absinthe.

This tool was released a few hours ago by Chronic Development Team, with the collaboration of Pod2g and the iPhone Dev Team. Absinthe is a French word which is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic beverage. Since Pod2g is French, this can be the reason why this word was chosen.

Currently, it’s now only available for Mac but Windows and Linux version should be available any time soon.

Before you begin, you need to make sure that your device is already running iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1. Backing up your device is highly recommended.


1. Download Greenpois0n Absinthe for Mac, Windows or Linux.

2. Connect your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 to your computer.

3. Launch Absinthe and click jailbreak. It may take a while so just sit back and wait.

4. Once done you will see the Absinthe icon on your springboard or home screen.

5. Connect to WiFi and tap on Absinthe. It may take a while to download all Cydia files as the server may be very busy. If you get an error message simply try again.

That’s it! You should now have Cydia installed and enjoy installing all your favorite jailbreak apps!

    • 1. We're not spreading rumor as we're the ones who started this topic, and it mentioned specifically it's from our source (supplier)
      2. You're wise enough to determine which is true or false
      3. Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days, so please be culturally sensitive
