Almost 1 Million iPhone 4S And iPad 2 Jailbroken in Three Days

greenpois0n absinthe

The jailbreak dream team released the Absinthe jailbreak late last week – the first jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. They’ve just shared the number of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users who have jailbroken their iOS device since the launch.

iPhone dream team have shared the following numbers:

  • 491,325 new iPhone4,1 devices
  • 308,967 new iPad2 devices
  • 152,940 previously jailbroken (at 4.x) iPad2 devices

Total: 953,232 new A5 jailbreaks in a little over 3 days

The data is based on the query that is sent to saurik’s servers when Cydia is launched to get the list of available SHSH blobs for that iOS device.

If you’ve jailbroken your iOS device then jailbreak dream has provided the following advice:

Remember the cardinal rule of jailbreaking: never update your firmware until a new jailbreak is available.  This is especially true for A5 owners, who currently have no way of restoring to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 SHSH blob signing window is closed.

With awesome jailbreak tweaks like SiriToggles and Hands-Free Control adding new functionality to iPhone 4S, we expect this number to go up as the word spreads.

Have you jailbroken your iPhone 4S or iPad 2? Let us know in the comments.

  • Joshua DGaF

    Yes my 4s and ipad2 have been jailbroken, thanks to the dream team for all their hard work.

  • Jason

    No I’ve been going through problems. I read every blog and mine is very rare apparently. Everytime i use absinthe, I always have to restore the jailbreak I tried to do once. Then while I jailbreak it, it quits unexpectedly, forcing me to do the whOle process again. HELP!

  • Jason

    Oh btw I have an iPhone 4s at 5.0.1 (9A406)

    HI, I have Jailbroken my IPhone 4s IOS 5.0.1(AT&T Carrier) in india. Is there any thing that i need to do to use the iphone in India. Or i can just take a new sim and use it. Guys Pls hellp me out.

    Thanks in advance.

    • dablo

      My guess is there isn’t att services in india correct? you will need to unlock your phone to use it with a carrier of your choice, there currently isn’t an unlock to the 4S, at least not that I am aware of.

    • Sunil Agrawal

      Dear Krishna, Can u plz tell the procedure of jail break 3GS IOS 5.0.1(AT&T Carrier) in India.

  • T-mobile 1.59.00

    It’s jailbreak not a software unlock that’s 2 different things ur talking about.

    • Krishna Chaithanya

  • Dan

    my own iPhone 4S, my girlfriends 4S and my mothers ipad 2 have been jb thanks to the dream team. It just works and now Siri is worth every buck. I’m really glad that I upgraded from iPhone 4 so I get the best user experience. Mine is also unlucked from the tele company. That’s standard when you sign up for a 6 months period in Denmark (Telecompany 3).

    IPAD without Jailbreak = Technological Waste!!!

  • darren

    I have an iPhone 4S 64GB on O2 and this jailbreak (absinthe v0.3) worked fine on my mac running osx lion without any major problems other than a few white icons which disappeared immediately after installing sbsettings. this is simply the easiest jailbreak yet and you don’t even have to put the iPhone into recovery mode. Fantastic work guys and as always your hard work is greatly appreciated.

  • tomricci

    You realize if people just donated a dollar these guys would be very happy in money, and they deserve it!

  • Da Vinci

  • Angel

    If i jailbreak my 4S on 5.0.1 and decide i want to go back to an unjailbroken state (apple os 5.0.1), can i do that without harm? also when 5.1 comes out i will want to upgrade right away from the hopefully fixed battery issues. please help me out! thanks
