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…
As most of you know by now, the A5 jailbreak was finally released this morning via Chronic Dev Team’s Absinthe app. While we haven’t had any issues ourselves with the software, some folks have been experiencing problems.
The reason for that is that the dedicated website, which is used in the jailbreaking process, is constantly crashing under the millions of users trying to jailbreak. So the Chronic Dev Team has released an update to fix that…
Could the tension get any higher than that? A few hours after iOS hackers working on the jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 announced that the release was imminent, we know have more details coming directly from pod2g.
In a blog post, the French hacker responsible for the upcoming jailbreak for A5 devices revealed the name of the tool that will be released by the Chronic Dev Team: Absinthe…
More updates from the jailbreak world this evening; as if the anticipation could possibly get any higher.
The app that contains the exploits used for the iPhone 4S jailbreak is essentially finished and the final touches are being placed on what we can only assume will be the latest version of GreenPois0n.
Earlier this evening, @planetbeing tweeted that fellow Chronic Dev Team member Nikias Bassen, better known as @pimskeks, has finished the majority of the app that will contain the heavily anticipated iPhone 4S and iPad 2 A5 exploit.
Several weeks ago we told you about the Chronic Dev Team’s Crash Reporter desktop tool. Jailbreakers can download and install the package to redirect iOS crash reports from iTunes to the Chronic Dev Team hackers. The reports are then used to find exploits and help further jailbreak research.
A new Cydia tweak has surfaced that automatically sends crash reports to the Chronic Dev Team from your iOS device. CDevReporter is available for free can be installed on any jailbroken iOS device today.
After weeks of anticipation, the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is finally here, compliments of pod2g, the Chronic Dev Team, and the Dev Team. As we explained a little earlier today, you currently have two ways to untether.
Depending on your situation, you can either run the latest version of RedSn0w, or if you’re already jailbroken, you can use the Cydia package called Corona Untether 5.0.1 to do the job. The latter is what we’ll focus on in this post…
Over the past few weeks, the entire jailbreak community has watched pod2g work diligently on the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. All eyes have been on the infamous hacker as he has tested his exploit on device after device running iOS 5.0.1.
Tonight, it appears that all of his hard work has paid off. After waiting more than 2 months for an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, it’s finally here. You can now completely jailbreak any A4 device running iOS 5.0.1.
pod2g has handed over the keys to his iOS 5 untethered jailbreak for A4 devices (which includes the iPhone 4) to the Chronic Dev Team. In doing so, he hopes to focus primarily on the A5 jailbreak, which covers the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
Since the untethered jailbreak for pre-A5 chip devices is basically finished, this will allow pod2g to get the iPhone 4S jailbreak back up to speed. This is very good news for owners of both A4 and A5 devices, because that means that both are being heavily worked on simultaneously…
