Developer and iPhone hacker xvolks has uploaded a video demo of Absinthe v2.0 which successfully achieves untethered jailbreak on his iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1.1. Although, video is not of very good quality but still we can see that the tool worked flawlessly and just took about five minutes to complete the process.
If you take a close look at the video demo, you’ll notice that User Interface of Absinthe 2.0 is quite similar to the one in version 1.0 which was developed for iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. When the tool was firstly launched back in January, the main purpose behind it was to make things simpler for the user. This demoed version also has a simple Interface and all you need to do is to connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and hit the jailbreak button. The rest of the process will be completed by Absinthe. Unlike Redsn0w, you don’t have to put your device into DFU mode.
In the demo video, you can see the Mac version of the tool in action. This tool uses Pod2g untethered exploit for iOS 5.1.1.
Update: The video has been made private by xvolks after a request from Pod2g.
The release date of Absinthe 2.0 is still unknown but according to xvolks, we can expect it to release soon. As the whole process requires 16 iDevices to be tested, a few more days would be required to deliver it to you. If previous history is anything to go by, we can predict that firstly the Mac version will be released followed by Windows and then Linux version. Pod2g has also confirmed that Dev Team will also release the CLI tool along with Absinthe v2.0.
