Few hours ago we published a post, that the Windows command line utility is released that can help you jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running on iOS 5.0.1. The Chronic Dev Team has already released the Greenpois0n Absinthe tool to jailbreak 4S iPhone and second-gen iPad using Mac OS X only.
This is why the Dev Team has pushed an update called CLI (Command Line Link) for both the Windows and Mac to allow both Win & OS X users to perform their jailbreak.
Apple’s newly released, iPhone 4S can be jailbroken on both iOS 5.0/5.0.1 firmware untethered. But the iPad 2 can only be jailbroken untethered on iOS 5.0.1.
First of all, assume that you have successfully updated your device and created a backup so that you can restore those apps, photos, videos, contacts and messages. Also unlock your 4S device by simply typing the passcode is necessary.
Step 1 : Download CLI Absinthe for Windows and OS X from here.
Step 2 : Extract the folder named cinject_0.4.3 into the system folder, i.e. C:\.
Step 3 : Go to Start menu, click to run and type in this line ” cmd.exe “.
Step 4 : In Windows command, type: CD C:\cinject_0.4.3 as shown to get into the required folder.
Step 5 : Now need to execute CLI file. Simply by typing: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig .
Step 6 : Now execute cinject.exe -j payloads and wait for the backup.
Step 7 : Finally execute the command cinject.exe -w .
Step 8: Go back to your device and tab on Absinthe icon to get your jailbreak almost done in few minutes.
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.
Or for FATAL(_LINE_) error, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content And Settings. Then do the procedure all over again.
Thats it, you have successfully done your work using Windows and Mac.
