The a Chronic Dev Team just released an update to Absinthe, bringing the jailbreak utility to version 2.0.2.

There isn’t anything new in Absinthe 2.0.2 besides support for the iPhone 4 GSM iOS 5.1.1 firmware update (build 9B208) that Apple recently released

Absinthe is compatible with most recent iOS devices running iOS 5.1.1, including the new iPad (iPad 3), the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2, the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th generation, iPhone 3GS, etc. Note that iPad 2,4 support will be added later.

Head over to our dedicated downloads page to download Absinthe 2.0.2!

More iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak coverage can be found here:

  • Hi I have an iPad 2 model number MC769LL and absinthe wont detect it. iOS 5.1.1.

  • I have an iPad 2 Model Number MC769LL iOS 5.1.1 and absinthe “doesnt support the device”.

    • I have the same issue. I have the same model.

      • I have the same one and just confirmed this is the iPad 2,4 so we are SOL for the time being until they release support for our iPad.

  • hey guys. i have iphone 4 version 5.1.1 (9B208). i jailbreak my iphone using absinthe 2.0.2 since it’s support 9B208. first of all before i had it JB with redsnow with OS version 5.0.1 and didn’t update my software until yesterday. what i did first to make it ready for the new jailbreak i make a backup through itunes and then restore it through itunes. ( the restore i did was not from an earlier backup. i run it as a new iphone) So after the old jailbreake was erased i downloaded the absinthe 2.0.2 . (the whole time though i had my iphone connected to laptop.) i run the absinthe and when it recognized my iphone i hit the button ”jailbreak”. it didn’t take long to complete the process. after the absinthe finished the process i went back to itunes and restore from the backup i did earlier. AND I HAD NO PROBLEM AT ALL WHILE I WAS DOING IT. IT’S SO SIMPLE. (ps have your itunes open while you perform the jailbreak. )

    After jailbreaking my pictures wont show up. It just shows an image of “.JPG”any solutions?

    Ok, those guys (including myself) who unable to make clean restore in iTunes with iPad2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw most likely have iPad2,4. In this case Absinthe 2.0.1 is not recognizing the device. In order to confirm you can install BatteryLife Pro (free app from Appstore). It will tell you what kind of firmware do you have. Absinthe 2.0.1 is working. I was a witness when my friend JB his iPhone4 in 10 min.
    I hope pod2g and other guys from Chronic Dev Team will figure out soon how to JB the iPad2,4. Otherwise I have to return this nice toy to the store.

  • I have tried both 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 of absinthe and they both say device not supported when i plug in my New Ipad running 5.1.1???? WTF

  • I cannot get my iPhone 4S to reboot during the jailbreak process. Started with a clean 5.1.1 install. I waited, rebooted it manually, and got the lockdown error. Reset and erased again. Repeated 4-5X and I decided I wasn’t waiting long enough. Waited 3 hours and it still hasn’t rebooted the iPhone. It’s still stuck at “Waiting for reboot.” Anyone???

    I am on jailbroken 5.0.1. Is it worth it to upgrade firmware and re-jailbreak? If so, how could i restore all my cydia apps and tweaks?

    • Marcus T

    oops

    Hey guys.. would love it if someone could answer this question: I have an iphone 4 on T-mobile on 5.1 with a factory unlock. Currently jailbroken with redsnow (tethered). I want to use absinthe for the untethered but am concerned about losing my unlock if I restore through itunes – which absinthe seems to require (2.0.1 anyway).. Do I need to go the custom ispw route or is there an easier solution? any help appreciated.. thanks, Mark

    • Factory unlocked phones will always stay unlocked, no matter what baseband gets installed by upgrading through iTunes.

    Please help. I did a backup on my phone and then did a complete reset on my phone and it wiped everything out and I installed absinthe but now Itunes is not showing the backup at all. Would it matter if I backed it up in icloud?

  • northripm

    I have an Iphone 4. Let me guess since I backed it up to icloud and then it wiped everything out then I lost the icloud backup too? Were the instructions suppose to indicate to back up to computer because I didn’t know this and really do think I have lost everything. Please someone help me. Please someone respond.

  • nene311

    Hi so I updated my firmware to 5.1.1 and downloaded absinthe 2.0.4 and used it with no problem but now when I try to open Cydia it just flashes and returns to the home screen. Anyone else having this problem or know how to fix it?

  • Looking for a way to unlock my carrier so that i can use a different carrier then what my phone has been contracted on. I have an iphone 4 5.1.1 9b208 it is jailbroken untethered. Is there such a program at this point in time that will allow me to unlock my carrier? Little bit of help please … Thanks in advance :O (the contract is done – paid in full so i just want to switch services now)

  • heys guys what to do if absinthe says the device is not supported?

  • Lisi

    Hi there,
    I could really use some help, I am so frustrated at the moment and have no idea where to go next.

    I have an iPhone 4s running 5.1.1. I had AT&T in the US but I am living in Australia for a year and would like to use my phone here. I downloaded absinthe 2.0.4 to jailbreak my phone. I followed all the steps and it told me that everything was done properly and my phone was now unlocked. However, today I received my micro-SIM from the carrier I will be using in Australia, when I put the SIM in my iPhone tells me to activate. When I try to do this it says something along the lines of, Sorry, but this SIM is not provided by a supported carrier, please insert a supported SIM. And will not allow me to go any further. I double check with Absinthe and tells me my phone is already jailbroken.

    What is going on? I’ve spent a lot of time trying to make this happen and I am foiled at every turn, first redsn0w didn’t work, then I try Absinthe, which said it did work… but obviously didn’t. Does anyone know what I can do or what is going on?

    I appreciate all help, thank you so much!
