With no definitive release date for the Evasi0n iOS6 jailbreak, I'm sure some of you, like me, have been refreshing the Evasi0n website for the past few days to watch the progress bar grow. Sometime this morning the bar reached 75% and entered the private beta stage that we discussed in our Evasi0n jailbreak announcement a few days ago. Yesterday, the site informed us that the tool had been completed for OSX and Windows, it appears as though the Linux version is still being worked on currently.
It is definitely looking more and more likely that we will be …

While creating your custom 5.1.1 firmware you have a few different options. One option is to create a pre-jailbroken firmware, this means that once you restore the custom firmware you will already be jailbroken and there will be no need to run Absinthe or …
Here is a tutorial on how to perform an untethered 5.1.1 jailbreak on most devices supporting the 5.1.1 firmware besides the AppleTV using Absinthe 2.0.4.

Well, after a long wait for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users, today is your luck day! An untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and 5.0.1 has been released! A new jailbreak application named Absinthe which was created by the Chronic Dev Team, and supported by the joint efforts of Pod2g and the iPhone Dev Team has just been released.
Absinthe supports the following devices and firmwares:
iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running
For those using yesterday's TinyCFW release to downgrade iPad2 to 4.3.3 and are running into issues with the executable there is a fix you can try below. For me I got the error " jvm could not start-the maximum heap size (-Xms) might be too large or a antivirus is blocking the execution." Since i didn't have a firewall or anti-virus running I knew that wasn't the problem. Below you can find the fix I used:
Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced system settings
Advanced (tab) and click on "Environment Variables"
Under "User variables.." click on "New"
