Absinthe – the graphical user interface jailbreak tool is now available for Windows machines. Previously only available for the Mac, the jailbreak tool makes it extremely easy to jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 in a matter of minutes.

Windows users have had another option to hold them over in the meantime; the iPhone Dev Team released a command line utility that worked well, but could prove to be daunting for some users. Thankfully that is no longer an issue. Check inside for more information and download locations for Absinthe for Windows…

If you’re a Windows user looking to jailbreak your A5 device, this is your best option. The app is exactly like its Mac counterpart, allowing you to load the untethered exploit onto your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S in a matter of minutes using an easy to use graphical interface.

As we’ve mentioned before, the new jailbreak works with the iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1, and the iPhone 4S running both iOS 5.0 and 5.0.1. And remember, those planning on unlocking their iPhones in the future, should stay on iOS 5.0.

If you feel like you know what you’re doing, you can grab Absinthe for Windows from our Downloads page and get started. If not, stay tuned. We should have our step-by-step tutorial for Absinthe for Windows up shortly.

    Wow, i just jailbroke my iphone using the cmd prompt and redsnow lol

    • Does redsn0w jailbreak iPad2/iPhone4S on 5.0/5.0.1 ?

      • Dan

        of course not

  • let the mayhem begin!

  • It’s out!

  • Dan

    great cause the other way was definitely not working for me!

  • Kok Hean

    I already jailbroke two iPad 2s and installed SBSettings. No wonder Cydia’s so slow at refreshing the sources, the Windows PC owners are jailbreaking their devices too!

  • So I thought it was gonna work on iPad 2 5.0.1, in the description above it only says 5.0
    And earlier in the week they said to update to 5.0.1

    • It supports iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 …

    • Yea it should be for iPad 2 5.0.1 only from what I’ve heard..

      • Kok Hean

        Not true. The jailbreak tool clearly states that it currently gives you an untethered A5 jailbreak for 5.0 AND 5.0.1.

      • I think iPad 2 is only iOS 5.0.1 .. iPhone 4S is 5.0 and 5.0.1 .

      • From my understanding THAT is only for the iPhone 4S not iPad 2

  • Thanks!

  • Absinthe don’t recognize my iPad 2 32GB Wifi, in my iMac and Win7… Any solution please!??

  • Hi!
    Umm I know that jailbreaking will void my apple warranty.
    BUT
    if I restore it before taking it to the apple store,, will they be able to tell that it was jailbroken?

    Also will backing up to iCloud also back up the jailbreak?

    I wish they’d update Greenpois0n for the A4 untethered because I really don’t like Redsn0w at all, always seemed more buggy … maybe they’ll package it up into a version of Absinthe.

  • Is anyone else getting stuck at the “ABSINTHE is now setting things up, please stand-by…” screen. I click on the absinthe app and it just remains on the next screen with the message above

  • Saud Alhaddad

    • Rashad

      Just follow instructions above

  • how can i unluck my iphone 4’s 5.01? should i downgrade to os 5 first? thank i

  • I get to the end of the jailbreak that tells me to run Absinthe on my phone, but the icon isn’t on the phone. Have tried the jailbreak multiple times and still no luck.

    • Fixed it. Make sure you extract to the desktop, not a different hard drive.
