    Post How to jailbreak iPhone 4S & iPad 2 on iOS 5.0/5.0.1 via Greenpois0n Absinthe


    We finally have a jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2! Untethered nonetheless.

    In order to jailbreak your A5 device (iPhone 4S or iPad 2) you'll need the following:

    - iPhone 4S running either iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1
    - iPad 2 running iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1 (note: wifi only devices HAVE to be on iOS 5.0.1)
    - Greenpois0n Absinthe - iMore downloads page

    First back up your device before ever performing a jailbreak or modification.

    Next, connect your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 to your computer and launch GreenPois0n and click "Jailbreak"

    This process takes quite a while longer than previous jailbreaks. Your device may look like it is restoring from a backup at one point - that's normal.

    After GreenPois0n injects the files it needs to, your device will reboot.

    From there, slide to unlock your device when GreenPois0n tells you to and find the Greenpois0n app icon on your home screen. Launch the Absinthe icon and it should do the rest. When your device reboots Cydia should take the place of the Greenpois0n icon.

    You're done!

    As a side note, the GreenPois0n servers are getting slammed at the moment so if you're getting connection errors when trying to launch and install Cydia in the last step, don't fret. Just try again later.

    Update: To fix the database connection error just go to settings and turn VPN connection ON - it will give you an error, your device will reboot, and then you should be able to either load the Absinthe icon or Cydia will already be in its place.

    After you download Absinthe, does my laptop need to have an internet connection for the program to inject the files into my iPad?

    the first time I used greenpois0n and had trouble getting Cydia loaded. redsn0w was able to add Cydia only without restoring and jailbreaking again. A great time saving tip.

    is there a way to downgrade from 5.1 back to 5.0.1 on my 4s? i know i probably need my shsh blobs but i just learned about all this yesterday. can i get the blobs from another 4s that still has 5.0.1 on it and if so what do i need to do? and if i can get the blobs what do i do to apply them to the 5.0.1 firmware? i also need the 5.0.1 firmware. i have a link to download it which i did but it downloads as a zip file. i jailbroke my ipod touch 4g with 5.1 tethered. i need 5.0.1 back on my 4s. any help would be nice, please

    Quick question, I got rid of jailbreak when I was running ios 5.01 now I've upgraded to 5.1. I got rid of the jailbreak because I was ignorant to much of its pros and focused more on the cons. Question is, has a jailbreak for 5.1 been released yet?

    Absinthe is still useful, incase if you want to restore from the beta version of iOS 6. Hope cdev can come up with absinthe update for iOS 6 once Apple rolled out it, may be along with iOS 6. Here you can get all the download links of absinthe for iOS 5.1.1

    Just found this out... If you are running mountain lion

    os x 10.8 you will be able to download the software needed from greenpoisons website but it will not open on your mac. I am not sure if they made the download available yet for this os since it just came out a few days ago.

    Turning off gatekeeper should fix that problem on mountain lion.

    Hi...I'm new to JB. I had a friend JB my 4S last weekend using Absinthe. Then I decided to JB my iPod Touch 4G the next day. The only problem I had was my own fault.....I loaded several sources back to back. Then I was not able to download anything from Cydia....I received a "Cannot Comply" message for a full 24 hrs. I read different forum threads that said the error was due to Cydia being busy or having a server down. I decided to restore, re-install Absinthe and not load sources I found online. I've been up and running since with no problems. I did back up my info both times before restoring. Absinthe is great tho.

    Default OSX Mountain Lion & Absinthe 2.0.4

    Anyone have a solution for OSX Mountain Lion yet? Absinthe 2.0.4 will not open...

    ---------- Edit ---------
    I figured it out.
    Step 1: Download Absinthe 2.0.4

    Step 2: Right click on the Absinthe icon and select Show Package Contents.

    Step 3: Navigate to the Contents/MacOS folder and right click on Absinthe 10.6 and select Open WithTerminal.

    Step 4: This will invoke the GUI interface of Absinthe, and you can now proceed with the jailbreak as normal

    Thats all there is to it! Special thanks to Idhanta Kakkar for the tip.

    Jailbreaking is possible for all Apple iPhone. Without jailbreak iPhone you can't unlock iPhone. So it is necessary to jailbreak iPhone and then go for unlock.
