Absinthe 2.0 jailbreaks most iDevices running iOS 5.1.1
The untethered jailbreak Absinthe v2.0 debuted on Friday with compatibility for almost all devices powered by Apple's A4 and A5 processors running the latest iOS 5.1.1 firmware, and is the first solution to unlock the new iPad.
Announced at the Hack in the Box event in Amsterdam, GreenPois0n Absinthe v2.0 is the result of a collaboration between the Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team and gives iDevice users wider access to system features normally prohibited by Apple thus allowing for the download of applications and extensions unavailable in the official App Store.
Currently, the iOS 5.1.1-only jailbreak can be applied to nearly all iPads, the iPhone 3G, 4 and 4S, third and fourth generation iPod touch media players, and the second-generation Apple TV. Support for the new 8GB iPad 2, which features a custom-designed A5 chip, will be available soon though the team notes that Apple TV compatibility will not be included in the version 2.0 build.
