Two days back the Chronic Dev Team released Absinthe for Mac. This GUI based tool will jailbreak A5 based iPhones and iPads very easily. The Dev Team has made jailbreak procedure quite simple, just click one button and you're good to go. However at the time only the Mac version was released, Windows users were left hanging in the balance. While iPhone Dev Team's CLI tool is capable of jailbreaking A5 devices on Windows, it's requires a complex procedure to be performed. Good news is that Absinthe Windows jailbreak tool is now available for download.
Unlike the CLI tool which is command line based and is likely to freak out a lot of conventional users, Absinthe Windows tool has a simple GUI. It is very easy to use just like its Mac counterpart. Absinthe for Windows will jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 quickly and easily without you having to deal with all the fuss.
A couple of reminders: iPhone 4S owners looking to unlock their devices should stick with iOS 5.0 firmware. It's because the unlock that is being developed for iPhone 4S might face baseband related issues on iOS 5.0.1. MuscleNerd has already cautioned prospective iPhone 4S unlockers against updating to iOS 5.0.1. The iPad 2 can only be jailbroken untethered on iOS 5.0.1. Since Absinthe Windows jailbreak tool makes a backup first, it is imperative that you create a backup in iTunes prior to applying the jailbreak. After backup has been made, erase all content and settings from your device in order to speed up the process.
