I think you have got the final version of the Greenpois0n Absinthe jailbreak for Windows to jailbreak iPhone 4S (5.0-5.0.1) and iPad 2 untether on iOS 5.0/5.0.1. Yesterday was a rogue day for the jailbreaking community when they were blessed with the first-ever iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak. The Chronic Dev Team has released two different tools for jailbreaking A5-based devices, in the form of Absinthe for Mac and the other one, which was command line-based utility for both the Windows and Mac users by the iPhone Dev Team.

Absinthe, which was created by the team who owns the original Greenpois0n tool, that’s of course on of the easiest on-click jailbreaking tool that we’ve come across in recent time. Simply by clicking one “jailbreak” button to jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, was limited to Mac OS X users only, until now.

The Chronic Dev Team as promised after hard work now pushed the release of the Windows version Absinthen which si now available for free download.

Several Mac users say, that this is the easiest way they ever seen, that allowed them to perform an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1. Before continue, you will need something.

Performing a Jailbreak iPad 2 and iPhone 4S On iOS 5.0.1/ 5.0

Step 1 : First backup your iPad 2 and restore it using the iOS 5.0.1 or 5.0 IPSW file.

Step 2 : Download the latest version of the compressed Absinthe package from here. Extraxt all files and run the .exe file. Download link given below.

Step 3 : Connect your iPad to your Windows 7 computer using a USB cable and launch the Absinthe tool and you will be presented with a GUI as shown below:

Step 4 : You will notice a button on the right hand side of the Absinthe program which says ‘Jailbreak’. Once your device is connected, click that button to begin the process. A restore process starts on your device with the words “Restoring in Progress” being present.

Step 5 : Once the restore is completed, unlock your iPhone / iPad and look for the ‘Absinthe’ icon which will now be located on your device’s Springboard. Tapping the icon will momentarily launch the GreenPois0n website, before causing your device to reboot. After the reboot is completed, the aforementioned Absinthe icon will now be replaced by a beautiful brown Cydia one. The application will take you through several steps of the jailbreak: Sending initial data, waiting for reboot, waiting for device to finish booting, Preparing jailbreak data, and Sending payload data.

On you iPad 2 or iPhone 4S, locate the Absinthe icon and press it to complete your jailbreak. It could be on any homescreen. See The Pictures below:

Note: If you are receiving an ‘Error establishing connection’ message at this stage, exit to your Springboard and be patient. The website servers are experiencing a tremendous increase in traffic so just keep trying to launch the Absinthe ‘app’. Alternatively, as a quick fix you can head over to the SETTINGS > GENERAL > NETWORK > VPN entry and then toggle VPN to ‘on’. This will cause an error message to be generated, which will reboot your device when dismissed. You can then launch the Absinthe icon again.

Step 6: After completing steps. Your device reboots into a jailbroken state. You can now launch Cydia and follow through the process of setting up your favorite jailbreak tweaks and extensions.
