People have been waiting a long time to jailbreak their new iPad and other devices running iOS 5.1.1. With the Apple tablet, jailbreaking is not a popular choice, but then there are always some for whom to be on the other side of law is fun. For this exclusive group, the combined efforts of the Chronic Dev team and the iPhone Dev Teams have come up with the Absinthe 2.0 jailbreaking tool that promises to give users unrestricted acces to any device running iOS 5.1.1. What this means is that even the new iPad 3, along with iPod and iPhone is within its ambit.
Of iOS jailbreaking tools, while there are and will be many to choose from, Absinthe 2.0’s claim to fame is being the easiest of them all so far. In fact, it can be pulled off in 5 easy steps. All users will have to do is plug in an USB cable and press a button. However, the programmers recommend backing up all data and then deleting everything from the iPad’s memory. They claim this will speed up the jailbreaking process. Also, users can always fall back on the restored data just in case anything goes wrong.
The Absinthe 2.0 is not applicable to iPad 2.4 or iPad 2 based on 32nm chips. You also don’t want to upgrade to 5.1.1 via the iPad’s Wireless Updater. You have to make sure you have the 5.1.1 version pulled directly via iTunes. The coders have stated a version of Absinthe 2.0 that will be able to jailbreak iPad 2.4 will be released later in the year. Until then, happy jailbreaking with the other models of iPad.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
