Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 Released [Download Links]

May 25, 2012 - 57 Comments

Absinthe 2.0

The much anticipated Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak has been released by the JailbreakDreamTeam. The utility allows for an untethered jailbreak of iOS 5.1.1 on virtually all idevices, including iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th gen.

An untethered jailbreak means the device is free to reboot on it’s own without boot assistance and without connecting to a computer.

In order to use the free tool, you must be running iOS 5.1.1 as no other versions are supported.

Download Absinthe 2.0

Links have been updated to the latest version of Absinthe 2.0.4

Users who are already jailbroken on iOS 5.1.1 but stuck tethered can use the Rocky Racoon tool to untether their jailbreak, a free download found on Cydia.

  12. cam says:

    what do i download to jailbreak

  13. stephanie says:

    this is not clear at all.nothing works. I downloaded it, & it saves as a zip file. then i click on it & its requiring me to extract files? then a black screen pops up with a bunch of jibberish. this is stupid & frustrating because i keep downloading crap & it isn’t working

    • jules says:

      The jibberish on the screen allows the Jailbreak to happen, if you’re running windows. It opens up the app for Jailbreaking. have you run as admin, or compatability mode? You need to run as admin to get it to work on windows Vista/7.
      Let absinthe 2.0 run all the way through, and you should be jailbroken. :)
      Hope that helps

  16. colleen says:

    i have the iphone 4GS. i tried to jailbreak it and for almost 2 hrs now its has had the loading symbol going round and round in the middle of my screen. can someone help me? did i kill my phone?

    • jules says:

      I think you did brick your phone sorry. :( I had troubles like that on my iPod Touch 2G MC model a while back, finally was able to restore, and I sold it to my friend when I got the iPod Touch 4G white. I know theres tutorials on how to fix the Spinning Wheel of Death. I cant remember which one I used though, sorry. :(
      Basically your iPhone has been on Reboot loop, and it can screw it over, but I think you can use like I think I used sn0wbreeze to kick out of boot loop, I cant remember exactly. I wish I could be more help.
      Good Luck!~ :)

  38. meenah says:

    Would like the battery percentage for absinthe. But I’ll jb anyway while waiting for the redsn0w untethered jailbreak.

    • lilneo13 says:

      If you want battery percentage then just jailbreak with redsnow 0.9.10b8b tethered. Then when you’re done install rocky raccoon and there ya go, untethered and battery percentage.

      • Toby says:

        what does tethered mean. is it when it goes flat you have to plug it into a computer to reboot. my mate has a red snow jailbreak and his battery percentage is faulty. it moves from 80% on the charger the back to 50% then when he plays a game it goes flat then you turn it on and it said 70%.

        • kkssmacbro says:

          tethered means temporary jailbreak which will go of when the system is rebooted or reset and untethered it permanent

  39. KeNgoaiDao says:

    Why don’t you trying 2.0.1?

      • Toby says:

        i tried to jailbreak on absinthe 2.0 windows on my iPod. i tried it on various computers but the best i got was Error lockdownd. i might just wait until absinthe 3.0. my iPod doesn’t respond to iTunes now and i don’t know how to fix it Answers Needed.


        • iPodfix says:

          You can fix it by holding down the lock button then the home button together. Hold both of them down untill it pops up on the idevice to re-conect to ITunes or to creat a new account (you can back up your idevice after you’ve done this). It will reset your idevice and you can set it back up.


  41. KeNgoaiDao says:

    For who’s running Lion/MLion
    Copy Absinthe to your Desktop!
    From Terminal:

  42. Rasheed Wallace says:

    Run it in OS X Mountain Lion by right-clicking > Show Package Contents > Contents > MacOS > double-click Absinthe-10.6

    Runs from Terminal instead.
