: Absinthe 2.0 for iOS 5.1.1 has been released. Check out our review of Absinthe 2.0 for instructions on jailbreaking your latest iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Below are the historical references to Absinthe 1.x version which you can still use to jailbreak iOS 5.0.x versions. So again for iOS 5.1.x you will need to use Absinthe 2.0.
iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak is now possible using the new GreenPois0n Absinthe from Joshua Hill and the Chronic Dev Team. The new GreenPois0n Absinthe app makes it possible to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 devices that use the A5 chip. You can download and run the new Absinthe app from http://www.greenpois0n.com for either your Mac or Windows and perform an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 on your A5 device. Be sure to make a backup in case something goes wrong. Here are the complete steps for installing Absinthe on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2.
Untethered A5 Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.0 for iPhone 4S or iPad 2 Using Absinthe
Previously released Untethered 4.2.1 Jailbreak … Chronic Dev have done it again. Wanna jailbreak your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Apple TV? Maybe you even want to jailbreak your new Verizon iPhone? If you have iOS version 4.2.1 you can finally jailbreak your device using the just released GreenPois0n 1.0 RC5 which produces an untethered jailbreak. If you are unlocked (using a non-supported phone carrier) don’t use this, as it will upgrade your baseband and re-lock your device. Otherwise if you just want to jailbreak your device so you can get Cydia and install jailbroken apps, this is the way to go. Previously you were able to use redsn0w to jailbreak to 4.2.1 but that required the cumbersome tethered approach. There was also a recent rumor about another 4.2.1 jailbreak called rubyra1n which has yet to be released.
Here’s how to download and use GreenPois0n to perform an untethered jailbreak on your iOS 4.2.1 device:
Be sure to add some sources to your new Cydia so you can find even more apps.
Here is a video demo of the GreenPois0n app on the iPhone

so all this hacking jail break is just people mouthing off about nothing ,this program does not unlock you from carrier you signed up for its blocked ,you only get to down load cydia but what for ,?
http://www.greenpois0n.com is not available i think looking at so many infomation web sites , and even paying one i have ? found maybe phone companys are blocking and manipulating ,decieving ,stopping people from getting access , and screwing up peoples phones for trying ,theres so many web sites giving links that dont work or sending you to paid web site or giving you downloads that screw up your phones, i looked in many forums reading , theres hundreds of people screwed phone problems..from down loads with no suport, i just complained to paypal for money back as i got nothing , i cant ever reverse ,remove ??GreenPois0n from my phone or cydia ? phone cost me $1100. now trying to unlock from carrier contract its stuffed .cannot use ..jail breraking does not exist for apple iphone 2.2.1 (8c148)Posted on February 24th, 2011 at 11:48 pm by ray

ive had all day loadind restoring anything that could go wrong happened , like conect to itunes,restore ,i did that 8 times todayPosted on February 28th, 2011 at 5:25 am by ray
i downloaded 8 times , i had black screens ,frozen , no swich on but apple is a great mersifull program it just restores and rids all mess
if ya handset freezes or you getr silver apple on screen or black , do the unlock programe hold on off button down 3 seconds press bottom screen on bottom 8 to 10 seconds relese on off button it will pop out of darkness , wait if after awhile nothing conect cable to i tunes , , try hold on biutton it will reboot , the worst i had was a black screen i thought it stuffed dead , but i put cable into itues waite if nothing try aceesing the dfo mode as above 3 seconds ,10 seconds relese hold etc . mine restored befor it switched on again it was black screen till near end of restore itunes ,. just remember its a computer it need one thing at a time to process ? not panic , breath easy i drank 15 cups coffee today and im on the edge .i colapts after 8 hrs of hard brain work ,frustration , depresion , anger, going to toilet 20 times , but in the end it is restored to factory conditions ready for tomorrow try again . its all tryal and error ,
I tried to use greenpois0n to jail break my iPhone 3G 4.2.1 today and had to restore it 4 different times because everytime I tried to put it in DFU mode it would work. However, greenpois0n would have me restart…am I doing something wrong?? Is my iPhone messed up or what??Posted on March 15th, 2011 at 3:58 am by David
even if you jail break your phone , it only allows you to install cydia apps but not ,unlock sim card from carrier ?its only tempory as well tethered ,so evvery time you swith off phone you got to reboot it from computer to start it , pluss if you have instaled it sucseesfully you need to reboot it via cable to computer ,not redo it but reboot?its in the info .i found 100 of apps but ,not much good as phone is for ringing out talking and if sim is locked its a total waste of time down loading cydia??if any one has cracked the sim put a message on here as im notified of updates or coments ?from site ,thanksPosted on March 15th, 2011 at 6:39 am by ray
maybe one day some one can do that but not yet.i paid 2 times to 2 different dev tean sites to unlock but it turned out they could not , but they will take your money?
4.2.1 mc apple iphone 4
I need to instal free download this programPosted on March 17th, 2011 at 10:31 am by Khalid
This whole thing is a crock of shit if you go through the comments no one is getting anywhere with these people. All they are doing is taking your money good thing I didn’t have to pay anything. But it sounds like some did :/ go to the carrier you want it costs but they will do it for you. At least Verizon does anyway just costs $30. but it works and its professional and you don’t have to worry about it again so it is worth the extra money.Posted on March 17th, 2011 at 10:01 pm by David
Does this work on verision 4.3?Posted on March 19th, 2011 at 2:10 pm by mark

The easiest way to unlock your phone under contract i’n Australia my3 is ring them and free of charge tell you i’n 48 hrs log into iTunes and it be unlocked easy no hassle I now can use any sim card now no need to jail break , it’s apple policy it your phone and either way you pay for hand set under contract give phone company your Imelda number free unlockingPosted on March 29th, 2011 at 5:09 pm by Ray
thanks it works!!! GreatPosted on April 1st, 2011 at 12:31 pm by kris
good news i had complaints with my 3 phone service and i complained to t6he athorities in T.I.O after a mth it escalated to a $10,000 fine for breach , so my3 au cancelled my 2 x phone contract.cancelled $1200 phone bill , pluss sold me the iphone 4 phones for $150 eachPosted on April 8th, 2011 at 4:09 pm by ray
so im $4000 better off as hand set contracts and bill,
and usb stick contract ,
but my bill over 12 mths was $500 a mth bill as excess charges, as all customer serevice is in india
no office on aust soil. ?
my3 sold out to vodafone phone and is screwing customers services wanting end of my3.there doing deals and contacting telicomunications investigation onbudsman T.I.O will fix if not after 1 mth there fined $10,000 ?unlocking under contract is free serevice as apple have control can not lock to provider ,jail break is a scam,

If i have my iphone already unlock, how can i download cydia?Posted on July 25th, 2011 at 4:26 pm by grey
Do you people know what a jailbreak does? It does not unlock the carrier baseband it only allows you to install cydia and install unsigned apps such as myfi and my3g. If you cannot get Absinthe to work YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS. This release is only for the iPhone 4s and iPad 2. Any other devices you have you will need to use Redsn0w. You need to find a carrier unlock app in cydia to unlock the carrier baseband. Do some research first before you jump on the site and bitch…..Posted on February 20th, 2012 at 12:23 am by Alex
