greenpois0n absinthe

Organizers of Hack in the Box Security Conference have just announced 1-day passes for tomorrow, May 25th for HITBSecConf 2012, which is being held at the Okura Hotel in Amsterdam.

It looks like pod2g and the Chronic Dev team will be releasing Absinthe 2.0 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 at the event.

As expected, pod2g and Chronic Dev team have released Absinthe 2.0 – iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. Check out this post for all the details.

Organizers of HITBSecConf 2012 tweeted:

SPECIAL @chronicdevteam 1-day passes for #HITB2012AMS @ EUR699! Come see @pod2g @p0sixninja @planetbeing @nikias JAILBREAK LIVE

Followers of @chronicdevteam – Come to #Okura tomorrow and say “I LOVE CHRONIC” at the reg counter to get the EUR699 discount seats!

The HITBSecConf series, which takes place in Malaysia, Dubai, Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur is one of the important events that is attended by security professionals from around the world.

As reported earlier, members of the jailbreak dream team such as pod2g, MuscleNerd, planetbeing, p0sixninja, nikias were supposed to be presenting at the event.

Earlier in the week, pod2g had said that the release of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV is almost ready and the release is just ‘a matter of days’ away. pod2g has also tested and confirmed that his iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak works with most iOS devices except for Apple TV 3.

Based on HITBSecConf’s latest tweet, it does suggest that they will give a live demonstration of Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak during their presentation, followed by the release. This doesn’t come as a surprise as Chronic Dev team had also hinted of some jailbreak goodness during the event.
According to the agenda on HITBSecConf website, Jailbreak dream team’s session is scheduled to start at 11:30am CET (5:30am EST) in which they will cover the Corona Jailbreak, followed by the session on Absinthe jailbreak at 1:30 am CET, which is 7:30 am EST. The agenda hasn’t been updated so it still says jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 rather than iOS 5.1.1.
If you’re in Amsterdam tomorrow and interested in seeing them in action, then you can go to Okura Hotel and buy the 1-day passes which are available for 699 EUR.
We’re not sure how many will end up making it to the event, but we’re quite sure it will be one of the most eagerly awaited events for the jailbreak community.
Update 1 (May 25th, 01:06 pm CEST):
pod2g and the Chronic Dev team have completed their first session, the next session should start shortly (1:30 CEST). We expect the jailbreak to be release towards the end of the session (2:30 CEST). So just over an hour to go.
While we wait, please note that it is safe for jailbreakers to upgrade their iOS device to iOS 5.1.1 and after you’ve upgraded to iOS 5.1.1, don’t forget to save SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella. Unlockers however should not upgrade and should wait for Dev team to release Redsn0w that will allow you to preserve the baseband.
Update 2 (02:10 pm CEST):
greenpois0n.com where pod2g and Chronic Dev team had released Absinthe 1.0 seems to be down, it looks like they are getting ready for the jailbreak goodies. Thanks Samuel for the heads up!
Update 3:
As expected, pod2g and Chronic Dev team have released Absinthe 2.0 – iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. Check out this post for all the details.

    • Cydiahelpsux

      lol ok mate, you do that, go away and do something totally different. Not a single f**k was given that day.

    • Axe

      Nothing has changed since the last post. Mr. Ma = Samuel = same faggot.

      don’t be a moron.

    • Apple1

      • Thein Zaw

          Lol! Right? Retard!!

      • First isn’t retared but retarded, second retarded is the people that don’t understand that the JB is one thing that takes lot of time of people that have their own lives.

        Plus, donation is what it is, only gives who want and what want, nothing less, nothing more.

        Btw, is just my opinion.

        • Samuel

          First you are a diot. Second that your stupid iPhone dictionary. They earned allot of money Fo jailbreak . Last you are idiot probably it is in your family DNA .

          • I don’t need to say nothing more. Your words define exactly what kind of person you are.

          • Axe

            We miss Mr. Man but we have Miss Samuel here in the house to get us entertained. Well idiot gene is in you since your great great great grandfaggot’s life. Have fun !

  • rvb15

    Really cant wait for this, just got an ipad 2 and updated the day b4 i decided to jailbreak. Been anxiously following the site for all the updates n im gonna be very happy tommorow when its released. Thanks for all the hard work

  • khan

    why is everyone pissed off all the time…

    • Rico

      Because we are not indians

    • eckon

      I will bet that 99.99% of those who are angry and complaining and can’t wait are those who have never donated to any of the jailbreakers ^^

      • Samuel Saboungi

        i did donate the time i saw ur mum on street wearing like a sl ut asking donation to pay for ur jb device. if you look to your mum when she walk you can see that she is been hammered


          ???????? Really?


      It comes with the whole lower class Fanboy thing. Sub-par phone = sub-par attitude. If you had a quality device like an android, you wouldn’t need to jailbreak and you’d have less stress and anxiety, and therefore be happier. They see me trollin……….

  • Izz

    Where the heck is mrman??

    • Samuel Saboungi

      in your mum vargina looking for the lost jb

      • Ben

        It looks like Samuel is a “MrMan” :))

        • Izz

          U want attention too samuel??

          Go cry to ur mamy wanabe mrman

          (who the hell would want to be mrman anyway :s)

      • Samuel


  • Key

    i have never donated and never will. they don’t want to release it, so be it. not getting my money for their “hobby”.

  • iPhoneDev

  • Gallardo

    • Faslane

      When there’s a link to post I’m sure you’ll find it. No one here know because it’s not out yet.

  • Tinman

    Well boys. It’s about that time. Tomarrow is the beginning of forever. The power of the A5 processing chip meets the versatility of what we Ll know as “jailbreak”. I encourage everyone to stay home from work/school/friends and we can throw wives in there to, and enjoy there all new jailbroken device.

    This is tinman and you’ve just been oiled!

  • hooray 🙂

  • Alterian

    GOD i cant wait….. thanks guys, ive been stuck on a new 4S with 5.1.1

  • Billy

    To all the b1tch a$$ cry babies and unappreciative douche bags. Nobody is forcing you to do anything. If you are going to hate do it to i0nic, and the guys that made Vuln Disco Mobile 1.7. Thanx Dev team for your time and effort.

  • ex

    Will this work for 5.1? And don’t guess! Be sure because I don’t want to upgrade if i don’t have to! pod2g started saying that this jbreak was for 5.1 than he said it would also work on 5.1.1 and now he doesn’t mention 5.1, so i just want to know. WILL IT WORK ON 5.1?

  • Izz

    Maybe samuel and mrman is just ion1c trying to make jealous comments

    Now that would be real pathetic

  • Nakoma

    Will it work for iOS 5.1
