Looks like we will see this out in the next day or so! Who's pumped?

I for one will be waiting a few days. Usally Cydia has issues the 1st day or two. Also many of the tweaks aren't compatible till after the jailbreak is out. Since many of the Tweak developers aren't on 5.1.1 themselves. So for me patience is a virtue and a smart move. :D

labman...I am running 5.1 tethered and the majority of the more popular apps are updated and run fine. 5.1.1 did not change anything that affected apps. The following all work with 5.1:

1. [X] iFile
2. [ ]
3. [X] My3G
4. [X] Gridlock
5. [ ]
6. [X] OpenSSH
7. [X] Dashtweet
8. [X] UniAW 5.0 (Digital_GPS_LS_Low)
9. [X] SBSettings
10. [X] NCSettings
11. [X] PkgBackup
12. [X] SemiTether
13. [X] MultiCleaner
14. [X] WinterBoard
15. [X] Dashboard X
16. [X] Icon Renamer
17. [X] Springtomize2
20. [ ]
21. [ ]
22. [ ]
23. [X] Transparent Status Bar for iOS 4

* All info below is tentative and subject to last minute refinements
* @pod2g's 5.1.1 jailbreak+untether is working out great. All devices are covered except for AppleTV3,1, which currently has no path for jailbreaking.
- the initial 5.1.1 plan used a kernel exploit from @westbaer which unfortunately precluded use in iPod3,1 and iPhone2,1
- @planetbeing stepped up and provided a kernel exploit that covers both of those. Those two JBers are the bomb!
* The 5.1.1 A5 JB is very similar to the A5 5.0.1 JB. @pimskeks has done a tremendous job supporting both 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 in absinthe
* Similar to 5.0.1, there will also be a 5.1.1 CLI "cinject" binary and redsn0w version of the 5.1.1 JB+untether. Absinthe, cinject, and redsn0w will all provide the same JB in different fashions.
- timing is indeterminate. Plans are for this week, but a number of factors can influence that.
* Please don't pirate AppStore apps (seriously, please do not).

Just attempted to load xBackup on my iPhone 4, tethered, iOS 5.1 and it states unable to purchase. It does not support tethered iOS 5.1 or 5.1.1 :( Have to resort to the old cumbersome PkgBackup.

Newbie question about a backup for the next jailbreak:
My 4S is currently jailbroken running 5.0.1 (9A405).
How and what should I need to backup?
I purchased this app --> "PkgBackup". Will be only a matter to sync and backup with iTunes and use the PkgBackup app? :confused:

Thanks

I am also curious...especially on how it handles multiple devices. I.e. I have 3 iPhones, two iPads and one iPod4. I will want to move them all to 5.1.1. They are all current JBed...only one of the iPhones is at 5.1 already. And it was a BOOGER to upgrade.

Thanks for the feedback!

The guy tweeted that pod2g "the guy releasing and who found the exploits" asked him to remove the video. The unofficial rumor is that the jailbreak will be released around Friday between 7am-12pm eastern time.

This estimate is to coincide with the jailbreak conference that the chronic dev team will be discussing absinthe and the entire jailbreaking process.

Warning to those on 5.0.1

5.1 and 5.1.1 has a weird bug in Safari and Photo, a few others have noticed it on here and the Apple forums, as well as other places online... basically the sensitivity of pinch zooming has changed, sometimes you go to zoom and it barely moves, seems to affect most depending on how hard you press your fingers against the screen.

I'm hoping jailbreakers notice this and fix it with a tweak, after all jailbreakers tend to be smarter and notice these little things

Not sure if English is your second language but nothing of what I said implies that I pirate apps. Besides that, what people do with their phones and their lives is their business, tired of people imposing their self righteous views on everyone else regarding something as trivial as pirating apps.

LMAO you guys are hilarious... those quotes only count when your drunk and cheating on your wife...... He tweeted this morning at around 8-9am Eastern( not sure what time in Holland) that "I'm polishing up the last touches on the jailbreak and was stepping out to get more polish."

I honestly don't hang on the words of these guys nor would I have needed to take a picture of his tweet for proof.

I just went to his page and no longer see the tweet from this morning. He might've deleted it.

Just like the original hacker posted a video on youtube showing absinthe 2.0 but quickly deleted it. It happened but theres no pic but im sure MANY people saw it, SO IT HAPPENED.

Edit: Pod2g tweeted "Any people of #HITB2012AMS has an iPad2,4? Model number: either MC954 or MC989. Please check in Settings / General / About."
Looks like he is rushing to find an iPad 2 at the HITB event. That might mean he's planning to do the final testing of the tool in Amsterdam and release the jailbreak very very soon, probably at HITB. Just my 2 cents.

That is the rumor.
Only pod2g and the Chronic Team know for sure.

Looks fairly certain now I'd say....


As of this post, at about 4:45AM EST, it is 10:45AM in Amsterdam where the Hack In The Box conference is currently taking place. Just as pod2g alluded to in a previous post on his blog, it looks like the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak will be demonstrated live at the conference, along with its highly awaited released before the conference concludes.

The official Twitter account for the Hack In The Box Security Conference just sent out a tweet confirming “Jailbreak Live” will take place tomorrow, and they are offering special 1-day passes if you happen to be in the area and wish to watch history take place.

What time can you expect to see the untethered jailbreak released in your neck of the woods? We analyze the likely time for the release inside…

SPECIAL @chronicdevteam 1-day passes for #HITB2012AMS @ EUR699! Come see @pod2g @p0sixninja @planetbeing @nikias JAILBREAK LIVE (Pls RT)

— HITBSecConf (@HITBSecConf) May 24, 2012

Since Amsterdam is 6 hours ahead of EST, and each day of the conference appears to be between 09:00~ and 18:00~ hours local time, the earliest we would see a release is at 3AM EST on Friday, May 25th. Interestingly enough, the official agenda for the conference lists actual times that members of the DevTeam and Chronic Dev Team are scheduled to present their work. The odd thing about the agenda, is that it lists the exploit as being for 5.0.1 instead of 5.1.1. This is likely a typo, unless the guys plan to talk about the exploits for the previous untethered jailbreak that happened back in January.

The agenda lists the following times for each presentation:

May 24th

11:30: Evolution of iPhone Baseband Unlocks — MuscleNerd
May 25th

11:30: Corona Jailbreak — Joshua Hill AKA @p0sixninja, Cyril AKA @pod2g, and Nikias Bassen AKA @pimskeks
13:00: Absinthe — Joshua Hill AKA @p0sixninja, Cyril AKA @pod2g, David Wang AKA @planetbeing, and Nikias Bassen AKA @pimskeks
This means the Corona event will start at 5:30AM EST on Friday, May 25th, and the Absinthe event will follow shortly thereafter at 7:00 AM EST. It’s very possible that the jailbreak will be released sometime within that ballpark window. Basically, I’d definitely keep my eyes peeled on Friday morning if I were you.

Really? Why complain? One day is nothing. If you can't do it yourself, sit quiet and wait for the people who can to release a tool.

That's one thing people don't realize. You complain that it takes too long, but you would complain a lot more if it bricked your phone. I think the JB team puts the same amount of time and effort into this as apple puts into its devices. To get this high quality service ABSOLUTELY FREE is a very generous thing for them to do.

So jb noob question: I'm on a jb ip4 running 5.1 redsnOw tethered, what is the appropriate sequence to get to the new untethered 5.1.1 jb? Should I upgrade to 5.1.1 via iTunes, losing the jb, and then use the new tool to re-jb after updating? And then use this "xbackup" to restore my cydia sources/tweaks? Thanks for any guidance, this is my first jb software upgrade haha

Edit: xbackup is optional correct? I mainly jailbroke so I could edit mms apn settings for my straight talk service, but once I was jb I added a few tweaks, figured why not, but literally only a few. For me it might just be easier to manually re-add them I think, right?

Personally, I prefer to restore then jailbreak. Its not needed, but I don't transfer over my text messages. I do save the files for it though. As for Cydia, I just reinstall all that manually. But I don't like to trust programs; or subconsciously I'm a glutton for punishment lol.

For example , I install 5.1.1 and jailbreak with Absinthe 2. Then Apple releases 5.x or iOS 6. Any way to have settings not display the red badge showing there is an uninstalled update if I choose to stay at 5.1.1 to keep the jailbreak?

What's the big diff between 5.01 and 5.1.1 that's making everyone so excited to update?

It's not just the updat that people are waiting on....some people could have purchased their phones with the new version of IOS or wait to JB their iPad 3.

Springtomize 2 for iOS 5. You can shut off badges by app.

If this update can fix the text message sound/vibrate issue I'm all for it -.-

My phone no longer vibrates or sounds properly when I receive a message. It tries to play the tone too many times, which throws the vibrate off so my phone just goes crazy lol.

Have to respring like twice a day to get it to go away :(

Looking forward to finally jailbreaking my iPad though!

only 5.1.1

Is there going to be an untethered jailbreak for 5.1 that is not from absinthe? I don't want to update to 5.1.1 because of all the talk about horrible battery consumption and s%&t and screen brightness and other bugs and glitches.

I was jailbroken and unlocked on a 2g iPhone running 3.1.3 and JUST got a factory unlocked iphone 4 and it's driving me insane that I don't have sbsettings. Bugs me to have to go into settings to do anything.

My 4S was running a little sluggish so I updated to 5.1.1 via iTunes and restored as NEW. Installed all of my Apple apps, configured settings and the only thing left is to re-jailbreak and re-install my Cydia apps (about 10 or so).

I'm anxiously waiting for Absinthe 2.0!!!

I have an unlocked (from ATT) iPhone 4 currently with 5.1.1. It's backed up on iCloud, but I don't think it is on my computer. I see everyone saying that they are restoring, but I restored maybe, 3 weeks ago. Do I need to do all of that again? Is it required for the jailbreak or will I just be able to install the jailbreak when it's released? I seem to remember the previous times I jailbroke (did it sometimes over the years, but never been a big into it), unless I was interested in a custom ipsw, a restore wasn't required, but I could be mistaken.

So if I do in fact need to restore, do I do it now? Will I have to do it again to complete the jailbreak after it's downloaded?

thanks and sorry if this has already been answered in various posts on this thread. I grazed through but was in a bit of a rush.

You HAVE to - the Jailbreak is designed to exploit iOS 5.1.1, not 5.1.

(So far as I understand it)

From the Greenpoison site:

This jailbreak supports firmware 5.1.1 ONLY and is again one of the most easiest jailbreaks to use (so easy your grandma could do it ;D)

If you are on 5.0.1 or 5.1, upgrade to 5.1.1 first - THEN run the Jailbreak.

Thanks! this worked for me on my iphone 4s with mac!

Tried "Erase All Content and Settings" then Absinthe 2.0 severel times with no luck... it failed (and recovered each time).

Used "Restore" in iTunes, configured as a new phone with a dummy name and waited untill iTunes was finshed syncing with the phone.
Closed iTunes, started Absinthe 2.0 and jailbreak was successful :)

Restarted iTunes and restored from previous backup.

iPhone 4 (GSM) - Windows 7 (64 bit)

No problems here with my iPhone4. Didn't restore or anything, just ran Absinthe and installed. Runs fine, no issues

Yup i went through that other mess with my iPhone but did it this way on my iPad, much better.

Tried this on 10.8. Not working for me. I get:

"Error detecting device (lockdown error -5)"

10.7.4 getting the same error. Guessing they didn't test on factory unlocked phones? Glad I can roll back...

Restore through iTunes, we're all have issues with erasing all content and settings.

im having a issue here. I upgraded to 5.1.1 while preserving my baseband 2.10.04, once i jailbreak it with redsnow, and then just boot tethered. When i open Absinthe , it says the device is not supported. Its a iphone 4.

I restored my iPad using iTunes and then used Absinthe and it worked. Just go to iTunes, click on device then restore (or shift restore and select 5.1.1 firmware, if already downloaded firmware) then use Absinthe when restore is complete.

In my opinion, it's unwise to go from a jailbroken firmware to an OTA update to jailbreak again. I think you're better off just DFU restoring to 5.1.1 to erase the prior JB and then rejailbreaking.

But as long as you're backed up, why not give it a shot? Worst case you can defer to the above.

Hi guys, i am currently running JB 5.0.1, do i really need to jailbreak to 5.1.1 ?

Right or just hit restore. 5.1.1 is the latest firmware.

Can confirm that restore through itunes is what fixed the issues for me in my 4S and 3rd gen iPad. Used Windows 7 to do the jailbreak as I couldnt get Absinthe to run on 10.8.

EDIT: When I tried on OSX it said that untether was detected, and Cydia was on my springboard. Weird!

If you get this error: "Something seems to have gone wrong...trying to recover. Recovery completed. If you want to retry jailbreaking, unplug your device and plug it back in", or similar.

Then,
1. Restore iDevice using iTunes - Go to iTunes, click on iDevice on the left then restore (or shift restore and select 5.1.1 firmware, if you have already downloaded firmware).
2. After restore is complete, click on the iDevice on the left and make sure it connects to iTunes store.
3. Load up Absinthe and click jailbreak.

2.did a complete wipe and reset all settings
3.ran absinthe ( got nowhere )
4.I am now at stock 5.1.1 with no jailbreak

Thats strange considering you did a full wipe. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for but try a restore again lol. Maybe on a different computer.

Erase / Reset and set up as new phone worked. Weird thing was I already had 5.1.1 for weeks on my phone. It was plugged into the computer and iTunes was open when it rebooted and it downloaded 5.1.1 and re-installed. After that I re-ran Absinthe and it worked.

I have 40GBs worth of apps on my iPad 3, and luckily I successfully managed to JB my iPad 3 WiFi without restoring from iTunes (woulda been a major hassle to reinstall everything). Here's what I did:

First I deactivated the passcode. Then I ran Absinthe 2.0 from my Win7 machine. After clicking the jailbreak button, it hung there for like 8 mins 1/4 through the bar, then I got an error saying "application has stopped working". In other words, Absinthe crashed. In the meantime, nothing changed on the iPad screen. It remained on the homescreen.

I closed it, right clicked on the Absinthe icon, went to properties, and checked the Windows XP compatibility mode and Run As Administrator. I fired it up again, and at first it said that the JB has previously failed on the device. It proceeded to recover the files and clear up the previous JB, then it started over. It took like 12 mins, and eventually the iPad restarted, and I was greeted by a Cydia icon on the springboard :)
