NEW Jailbreak 5.0.1 Untethered iPhone 4s & iPad 2 – Absinthe

This post will walk you through the simple steps required to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 For The iPhone 4S And The iPad 2 (UNTETHERED) and the best part is that thanks to the new utilities, you can be Jailbroken in a matter of minutes!


1. Download Absinthe from the download section below and run it

  • If you’re on Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you should right click Absinthe and set compatibility to windows XP (service pack 2) and then run it as Administrator

2. Plug in your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 and click “Jailbreak”

3. Leave your device plugged in and do not touch it until you see the “Almost done” message in Absinthe

4. Open the Absinthe app with your device still plugged in – if you get a Database error, continue to step 5 (otherwise let it finish and you’re done)

5. Open the Settings app, toggle on the new “VPN” option and let it finish (it’s extremely important that your device remains plugged in)

You now have an untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1!

  • NOTE: MAKE SURE you REMOVE your security passcode before you Jailbreak (you can reset it once your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 is Jailbroken)

IMPORTANT: Do you need to use your iPhone on another carrier? If so, you need to Unlock it!
