Finally, for the joy of those sitting with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running Apple’s iOS 5.1.1 firmware untethered jailbreak is now available! As predicted, and promised by Pod2g, after the weeks of hard work and research untethered jailbreak for all existing iOS devices is delivered, excluding the third-generation Apple TV. Once more tale a look at the full list of 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak compatible devices:
iPad (3rd gen)
iPod touch 3G
iPod touch 4G
Apple TV 2G
Before you actually move on to jailbreaking process provided below, there is one thing to note – it is highly recommended to make a complete backup of your device using iTunes or iCloud. And one more thing - if your iPhone is unlocked, do not update to stock iOS 5.1.1 firmware and for the time being stay away from Absinthe. You need to also disable a passcode set on your iDevice before following the steps listed right below:
The first thing to do is to download Absinthe 2.0, find compressed file and extract all of the content with any archiving tool you’d like.
Connect your iDevice to your PC via a standard 30-pin connector cable and launch the Absinthe tool through the executable file downloaded in step 1.
If your device is properly connected, you should now see an initial interface with text-based information and a “Jailbreak” button which should be available. Tap the button for the jailbreak process to begin.
*Don’t panic if the device looks like if it is going through a restore process, as it is due to the initial Absinthe tool for iOS 5.0.1 accompanied with a new method for jailbreaking. Do not touch your device when the progress bar on the Absinthe GUI provides user feedback.
The payload process will soon be complete and you’ll see the familiar Cydia icon on the home screen. This means that your iDevice running iOS 5.1.1 is successfully jailbroken and you are now free to install any extensions or packages via Cydia ( if your device supports them, of course)!
