Jailbreak 5.1.1 Untethered For iPhone 4S,4,3Gs, iPod Touch 4,3 & iPad,3,2

by on May 25, 2012
 


Today, the Chronic Dev Team released Absinthe v2.0 – the first 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak since iOS 5.0.1! The new utility also includes support for Apple’s latest A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2) and A5X (3rd-generation iPad) devices.

First, before we begin, You Will Need the following:

  • An A5X (3rd-gen iPad), A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2), A4 (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4th-gen, iPad 1) device or older (iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3rd-gen) running Apple’s iOS 5.1.1
  • Absinthe 2.0 (Available in the download section)

Steps:

1. Open Absinthe after downloading it and place the app in an easy to access location -preferably the desktop


  • (if you’re on Windows Vista or Windows 7, you’ll need to right click Absinthe, set the compatibility mode to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and run it as an administrator)

2. Plug your device in via USB and click “Jailbreak”

3. Leave your device plugged in and leave it connected until you see “Done, enjoy!”

  • Note 1: The first three processes inside of Absinthe will certainly take a while to complete and vary depending on your iDevice and computer
  • Note 2: MAKE SURE you REMOVE your security passcode before you Jailbreak (you can reset it once your device is Jailbroken)

Congratulations, you now have an Untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1!

Untethered: Your device is untethered, which means you don’t have to plug it in to a computer and re-run a certain part of the Absinthe utility upon rebooting it – simply power it off and back on

Convert your Tethered Jailbreak to an Untethered Jailbreak (on an iPhone 4,3Gs, iPod Touch 4,3 or an iPad) by searching for and installing “Rocky Racoon” from Cydia.

Download Absinthe:

Absinthe 2.0.4 for Mac
Absinthe 2.0.4 for Windows

    I currently have an iPhone 4 running 5.0.1 and it is jailbroken already…If I upgrade to 5.1.1 then jailbreak it again using absinthe will I lose my jailbreak apps, settings, themes, and layout etc. I don’t really want to have to redownload and reconfigure my setup and layout all over again. I guess I want to know that once I jailbreak it with absinthe will everything be as it was when my iPhone was jailbroken on 5.0.1?

    Cydia/absinthe 2.0.4 jailbreak appeared successful (installed, visible on iphone, accessible app), but when I inserted my actual sim with gevey, a reactivation message appeared..redid the process, and same thing occurred… I understand there is technically a workaround (emergency call, etc), but is there a way to permanently get around the reactivation screen?

          No. If the computer is the one that syncs with the iPhone then it’ll ask you to backup everything on the device an after the update it’ll ask you if you want to restore all your data or set up as a new iPhone.

       That’s why you make a backup on iTunes before you do your jailbreak. So that when you do jailbreak it and get Cydia, you can go back on iTunes and restore your iPod.

    I am running Absinthe on Windows Vista, and in the directions it says to change the compatibility mode to Windows XP Service Pack 2, and then to run the program as an administrator. I have done both of these and every time i try it the program shuts down, and Windows just tells me that the program has “stopped working.” I am very confused and do not know how to resolve this problem. I am using a iPhone 4s.Thanks.

    1. I can’t delete any of my apps installed. I press the ‘X’ to delete and then it gets stuck.
    2. Some of my buttons or things are gone. for example i can’t see the wifi signal in the top corner of the screen.
    3. it changed automatically the way settings look, and it doesn’t look right it looks like some elements disappear.
    4. i can’t enter safari, it automatically closes the program and gets me out of there.
    5. it makes my icons look white, or disappear. i even try installing some bug fixes for that and it didn’t work. 

    I’m using the new retina iPad. if anyone here knows any tweak names for this issues, or they’re bugs or anything please let me know. I would love some help here.

    Why would any-one try to brick his $800,- laptop with some hack. You would not, keep it safe with Windows 7, right. Now this IOS5 Jailbreak is hilarious. So many things are not validated or simply working. Only a fool would try it a second time and one more after that. Stick to the original OS and be happy with until an update gets available. You only have to wait 4 months before the new iPhone 5 is presented. Believe me, this is the one you will buy without a Jailbreak.

    using an iPhone 4 (not iPhone 4s), I downloaded a fresh 5.1.1 firmware ( 9B206) and restored my iPhone. next, I downloaded the absinthe 2.0.1 for windows and extracted the files. I highlighted the absinthe application and right-clicked the mouse, setting it to compatibility for windows xp service pack 3, and run the application…viola!! thank you so much for the clear instructions! worth the wait. :D

    INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAC USERS!!!!!

    for the jailbreak to work, you need to back up your device, now you will restore the device, set it up as NEW device, now you will jailbreak with absinthe and it will say “enjoy” instead of “retry by unplugging and plugging your device in” now once its finished, you will restore to the backup you just performed. now to FIX cydia, go to manage, select packages, select cydia installer, and reinstall. YOUR 5.1.1 IS NOW JAILBROKEN WITH WORKING CYDIA!
