The moment that the entire jailbreak community has been waiting for has finally arrived. We are once again in that fantastic period of time when all jailbreak tools get updated and once again you free yourself from all Apple’s restrictions. After a long period of hard work and sleepless nights and a huge collaborative effort between Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team (or how the jailbreak community likes to call these 2 as the Jailbreak Dream Team) the untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak support has been finally released to the general public. Yes you’ve heard me right: with the help of Absinthe 2.0.4 tool you can now jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
For those of you who don’t already know the Absinthe jailbreak tool was initially developed by the guys from Chronic Dev Team back in January this year as the only jailbreak option for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Running on iOS 5.0 / 5.0.1. At the moment Absinthe 2.0 is one of the easiest jailbreak tool to use and it supports firmware 5.1.1 only. This tool uses a small breach in Apple’s iOS and allows users to inject the required files into their iDevices in order for them to benefit from the untethered jailbreak support. However if you are not an Absinthe fan you can always jailbreak your iDevice with Redsnow 0.9.12b2 or Snowbreeze 2.9.6.

- iPad 2
- iPad 3
- iPod Touch 3rd gen

- If you rely on a carrier unlock you need to stay away from Absinthe! You can use instead Redsnow 0.9.12b2 or Snowbreeze 2.9.6.
