The Chronic Dev Team, as expected, has released an update to the Absinthe jailbreak tool to enable iPad 2,4 untethered jailbreak support for iOS 5.1.1.

The iPad 2,4 is the updated version of the iPad 2 that features a new chipset yielding improved battery life. Due to the rarity of this version of the iPad 2, support was withheld until further testing could be done. Now it’s obvious that the testing was completed successfully…

The Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether has also been updated to version 1.0-3 as a result of the added support for the iPad 2,4.

Head over to our downloads page to download Absinthe 2.0.4. Do you have an iPad 2,4? If so, let us know how the jailbreak experience goes once you use he latest version of Absinthe.

  • im getting lockdown error-5……Ipad 2

  • I Updated it in Cydia, even though it was not necessary for me (iphone 4, iOS5.1.1).

    It messed up with my theme appswitcher and folder background. It’s back to default.

    I’m pretty sure it happened after I updated Rocky Racoon…

    Anybody else?

    • Solved…

      I just re-applied the theme on winterboard and respring the phone…

      All fine now…

  • Is anyone else having an issue with their camera roll? I see the photo that I took at the little preview thumbnail at the bottom left hand corner of the camera app but when i open it, it shows a photo that I took a long time ago all blurred out…

    This has all happened after the Absinthe jailbreak.. I’ve reverted it back to factory settings and restored from a backup and still having the same issue (without the jailbreak)

    So I’m not sure if its the software bug or the jailbreak? I hope someone is able to answer this…



  • Is it just me or is there a bug that does not let u play ur purchased music once u JB? My music just seems like its playing but no sound! Pandora works tho

    • I am having the same issue. I am about to factory restore and re-jailbreak to see if that fixes it.
