Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 [Updated]

Apple iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users who have iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 installed can now jailbreak their device now. Pod2G has officially announced the release of the Jailbreak software in his blog few minutes ago and here is the link to grab the download. It is not recommended to download from any other sources other than the valid one. We have tried jailbreaking our iPhone 4S just now using the tool “Absinthe” and its done. Still there is an “Error Establishing Database Connection” when we launch the App.

Update: Absinthe available only for Mac currently. We have to wait to get it for Windows OS.

Update: Greenpoison website is temporarily down so you may get Blank page or Error as said above.


Download Absinthe

Hope it will get fixed in few hours by the team. Apart from that, the jailbreaking process went totally smooth. If you are stuck in the middle of jailbreaking your device then do it from first to complete the jailbreak successfully.

How to Get Cydia on iOS 5.0.1 ?

Once the jailbreaking process is completed on your Mac, Absinthe window, the next step has to be done on settings page to get Cydia on your screen.

Navigate to Settings -> Turn on VPN (provided by Absinthe on settings homescreen)

This will Reboot your iPhone or iPad and once the rebooting done, you will see Cydia on your Homescreen.
