Absinthe 2.0.4 Tutorial Untethered iOS 5.1.1 Jailbreak

Here is a on how to perform an jailbreak on most devices supporting the firmware besides the AppleTV using Absinthe 2.0.4. We recommend doing a fresh restore of 5.1.1 before jailbreaking(although it not required), if you are currently tethered jailbroken on 5.1.1, you can use the Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether.

Absinthe 2.0.4 - WIN
Absinthe 2.0.4 - OSX
Absinthe 2.0.4 - Linux

Step 1: Download and extract from the above links and open it. If you are running be sure to open absinthe.exe as administrator.

Step 3: Connect your supported iOS 5.1.1 device and Absinthe should display the model and iOS of your device.

Step 5: Click the jailbreak button in Absinthe to initiate the process.

Step 6: Your device will appear the same as it does in the case of a normal firmware restore.

Step 7: Once your device reboots you will now have Cydia on your springboard.

Step 8: Once Absinthe tells you that the jailbreak is complete, you're all set, you can now close Absinthe and you are successfully jailbroken untethered on iOS 5.1.1!

Step 9: Open Cydia and let it configure itself for the first time. Congratulations, your iOS 5.1.1 device is now jailbroken untethered!
