If you’ve been waiting on an untethered jailbreak for your iPad on the latest version of iOS (5.1.1) it looks like your waiting will be over very soon. As iDownload Blog reports, Absinthe 2.0 is expected to be released very soon, possibly this week – and will offer an untethered jailbreak for iPads running iOS 5.1.1.
In fact, Absinthe 2.0 should be able to jailbreak all iOS devices except Apple TV3,1 according to the Dev Team’s Musclenerd. And there will be a new version of RedSn0w that will also be capable of untethered jailbreak for 5.1.1 devices.
According to Jeff Benjamin at iDownload Blog this new jailbreak is shaping up to be just as easy as the original Absinthe. I’ve used it on my iPhone 4S and have found it to be amongst the fastest and most solid jailbreaks I’ve ever done.
I’ve had very little temptation to jailbreak my iPad for a long while now, but this time round I may have a look. I’m planning to get a new iPad as a pure test device soon, mainly for testing iOS 6 betas when they are (hopefully) released during or soon after WWDC in early June. So I may well give the jailbreak, and a few of the latest tweaks, a spin before then.
Are any of you planning to jailbreak your iPad once the new versions of Absinthe and redsn0w are released?
