I am here today to proudly pronounce the jailbreak for all iDevices untethered. Especially the 4s and Ipad 2's and 3's becuase they have been waiting a while.

We would like to thank everybody in the HITB confrence, Pod2g, MuscleNerd, and the rest of the team. They spare tons of hours to give us happiness.

For the turtorial go here:


or just follow instructions below:

1. Make a backup of your device in iTunes by right clicking on your device name under the ‘Devices’ menu and click ‘Back Up’.

2. Once your backup is complete return to your device and go to Settings – General – Reset – Erase all Content and Settings. This will make the jailbreak process much faster.

3. Open Absinthe and be sure you are still connected via USB cable to your computer. LINKS IN SITE

4. Click ‘Jailbreak’ and wait…. just be patient and do not disconnect your device.

5. Once jailbroken return to iTunes and restore your backup from earlier. Right click on your device name under the ‘Devices’ menu in the left panel of iTunes and click ‘Restore from Back Up…’ then select the latest backup you created before. (restoring this backup will return all the content previously on your device ie, apps, photos, etc.)

6. Thanks for using Absinthe, enjoy your jailbroken iDevice!
