Pod2g has confirmed that his newest jailbreak works with iOS 5.1.1. As you can see from the video posted below, pod2g has jailbroken an iPad 3 running iOS 5.1. On Friday, he tweeted that the same untethered jailbreak works with Apple's iOS 5.1.1. This means new iPad or iPhone owners with 5.1.1 pre-installed (or those who accidently updated) will be able to jailbreak their devices once it's released.
The latest untethered jailbreak should work on all iOS devices, including the new iPad and iPhone 4S. Pod2g has not given an ETA on a public release, but with all the progress the jailbreaking community has made recently it should be soon.
Chronic Dev Team released another update to the Absinthe jailbreak tool for Mac. The new application jailbreaks the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered and addresses several bugs that users reported while using Absinthe. Planetbeing reports the team has attempted to fix the white icons some users were seeing on their home screens after jailbreaking.
Absinthe version 0.2 also attempts to fix another issue where the iOS device fails to reboot after turning on VPN and touching the Absinthe icon on the home screen. Hopefully the latest version, which was also released for Windows, will help minimize problems for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners looking to install Cydia.
The Absinthe jailbreak tool for Windows is here. Chronic Dev Team released a new version of Absinthe that not only corrects some early bugs in the process, but will bring the full iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak to Windows users. The solution comes from pod2g and a "dream team" of iOS hackers working around the clock.
Absinthe is fully untethered and can be installed on mobile devices running Apple's latest firmware (iOS 5.0.1). Development efforts continue despite the successful release of Absinthe, with the iPhone Dev-Team working on new tools including an updated redsn0w coming soon.
UPDATE: Instructions for using Absinthe for Windows are here.
Great news has arrived for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners looking to jailbreak. Chronic Dev Team released the highly anticipated Absinthe jailbreak tool for Apple A5 devices running iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 firmware. This solution was in the works for some time, thanks to the efforts of developer pod2g and a "dream team" of iOS hackers.
Like the most recent iPhone 4 jailbreak, Absinthe is untethered and can be installed on mobile devices running Apple's latest firmware (iOS 5.0.1). The greenpois0n servers delivering Absinthe were down for hours today thanks to heavy traffic from jailbreakers across the globe.
iPhone developer and jailbreak specialist pod2g recently disabled comments on his jailbreaking blog, but he did take the time to respond to some of the serious inquiries he has received in the past.
Here are his answers to the top four frequently asked questions about his upcoming A5 jailbreak.
Intel already manufactures x86 processors for Apple's desktop computers, and now the company may be taking a closer look at mobile ARM chips like the Apple-designed silicon featured in current model iPads and iPhones. According to the EE Times, Intel is courting Apple with the intent of manufacturing processors for future generations of Apple mobile hardware.
Currently the A5 processor is manufactured by Samsung, however this is already slated to change. On the horizon is chip maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), who has already signed a deal with Apple to take over the foundry relationship. TSMC could begin getting revenue from Apple business before the end of 2011.
