Absinthe iPad 2 Jailbreak Released for Mac and Windows

by on January 21st, 2012

Update 1: The GUI version of Absinthe for Windows has been released. Download here.

Yesterday @pod2g and his ‘dream team’ released the much-anticipated jailbreak for the iPad 2 via the tool called Absinthe. Currently it’s only available for Mac OS X users, however the iPhone Dev Team has released a command-line interface (CLI) version of the tool for advanced users that supports Windows. A Windows version of Absinthe will be released shortly according to the Chronic Dev Team, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, if you want to jailbreak your iPad 2 it’s fairly simple. We have some simple straight up tutorials for you to follow  using Absinthe on your Mac or the CLI on Windows. Let us know how they work for you!

    Think I’ve just discovered an iPad 2 only bug with absinthe. No wi-fi sync. My iPhone is syncing fine over wifi (after a restart and safe mode crash), but my iPad 2 can’t be seen by my Mac unless it’s plugged in.. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?

    Nevermind, it’s working again..  A reboot wasn’t enough to fix it, had to actually turn it right off and on again and now iTunes sees it over wifi again
