Meet the iOS Jailbreak Dream Team, the hackers behind Absinthe

By , May 25, 2012

pod2g, p0sixninja, planetbeing, pimskeks. If you’re into jailbreaking, you’ve likely heard or seen these names before, but do you know who’s hiding behind these Twitter handles?

Thanks to JailbreakCon’s Craig Fox, we get to see what the guys who brought us the Absinthe untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 look like…

From left to right, we have pimskeks, planetbeing, pod2g, and p0sixninja (who’s looking very sad on this picture).

Thanks Craig for the photo.

      normally my gratitude would also be immense – but in this case – Absinthe 2.0.1 will not jailbreak the iPad 2, witness all the forums where many people are experiencing the same issue – it hangs at the reboot stage and thereafter shows “Error detecting device (lockdown error -5)”
      I AM grateful for all the effort but I think we should warn people not to try this new jailbreak yet.
      regards

        Hmm, maybe you should have read the post on the website. It specifically said that iPad2 will be supported a little later.

        would be grateful if you could point me to where this note is – really did not see it – my fault for being to hasty….

      p0sixninja tiene novia y ella ocasionalmente le ayuda a escribir y actualizar los posts online, incluso se le ha visto posteando usando la cuenta de p0six. De los otros no sé.

    I get another error with my iPad3 and win7. Also well known and a windows-to-blame-one apparently. absynthe exe. has stopped working. The perp here, according to the win log is “ntdll.dll”.
    But now comes the weird part. It happened on two different computers both running Win7 (completely up to date) but with a totally different program setup. And of course with administrator accounts on both machine and both “run as administrator”. Basically it’s no big deal that my iPad isn’t jailbroken but I don’t dare to update my 4s to 5.1.1 unless I know the JB works.
    Any ideas?
