Absinthe 2.0 Untethered Jailbreak Will Also Support iPad 3,3 And Apple TV 2; Release Imminent

greenpois0n absinthe

pod2g has just confirmed that his iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak works with iPad 3 Global and Apple TV 2.

Earlier in the week, pod2g had said that the release of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is almost ready and the release is just ‘a matter of days’ away.

He seems to have managed to get hold of the iPad 3,3 model at the Hack in the Box conference. He tweeted:

OK just added iPad3,3 support to Absinthe thanks to @flawlessfox. Only remains iPad2,4 now but we need the actual device.

pod2g has updated his blog with the list of devices that will be supported by Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak. The device list now also includes Apple TV 2.

  • iPhone 3Gs
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4 CDMA
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 1
  • iPad 2 Wifi
  • iPad 2 GSM
  • iPad 2 CDMA
  • iPad 3 Wifi
  • iPad 3 CDMA
  • iPod 3G
  • iPod 4G
  • iPad 3 Global
  • AppleTV 2
His iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak currently does not work on Apple TV 3, which means that the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak team need to test and confirm the untethered jailbreak only on the $399 iPad 2 that is powered by the tweaked A5 chip now.
With just one device to go, the release of Absinthe 2.0 seems imminent. It is being speculated that the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak team will release Absinthe 2.0 during their presentation at the HITBSecConf on Friday.

    Don’t y’all mean apple tv 3?

    • lanky

      No AppleTV 3. Pod2G always stated AppleTV2 support. They must have had had blinkers on. His Blog always listed AppleTV2 as supported.

    • toptrumps

      ive just tried to jailbreak apple tv 2 on the latest firmware and it doesnt work. absinthe says device not supported.

  • Praeto

    What is Ipad2,4?

    Sorry, I’m new to this

    • Gordii

      If you would read the artical you would have not had to ask this question…

        And if you weren’t such a douche you could have just kept your mouth shut.

      For now. A writer just got lazy, so he typed 4 now

  • MrMan

    I don’t care! I want it to be released right the f**ck now! This guy, the cherub-looking mofo pod2-oooooo-my-logo-looks-like-a-f**ing-gypsy-made-it-g,has been stalling this jailbreak for so long now, it’s getting f***ing retarded! I don’t care about him releasing it to us for free, that’s a great thing, and i thank him for that (good that he is not like that german f***er who demands money for it). But he should keep his mouth shut instead of keep saying “it will be released soon, it will be released soon”, when it actually isn’t! I have been visiting this siste non-stop the last 2 months because this retard keeps making false promises. The last on of which was “matter of days” – this was days after the Hacking convention, of which he hinted on releasing it on. But now these “days” might as well have been the “matter of a week”.

      Have respect douche bag!

      I feel your pain dude, I’ve been following this site since I got my New iPad (iPad 3, and unfortunately I updated my iOS so missed the 5.0.1 jailbreak boat), but seriously I knew there would be a wait, and these jailbreak devs don’t have to release anything for us. I’m really thankful that they do.

      But wtf? The sense of entitlement that people have these days makes me embarrassed to be part of the human race. People just want instant gratification and when they don’t get it they kick and scream like babies. Grab a shovel and dig in to some humble pie.

      • BloodShed

        iPad 3 never shipped with iOS 5.0.1. It shipped with 5.1 out-of-the-box. Perhaps you bought an iPad 2.

        • Hayden

          You’re right, I was thinking of my iPhone 4S… doh!

    • Happy

      You sir are just a total tool, go cry somewhere else

    • k

      way to be grateful to the jb devs!!

    • John

      Your the retard, you ungrateful piece of crap

    • Izz

      As usual, it’s you again complaining hahahahaha dude ur pathetic

      Mrman? More like mrkid!!
      Go cry to ur mama, we ain’t yo mama boy!!

    • Olaf

      Right on time!! @$$h01€ alert!
      Mrwoman, on another thread, said he wouldn’t use the JB now because he was tired of “waiting”.
      I called him out on it and I was right! The jackhole will get the JB for free and is still talking ish. Maybe he can choke on his own $”1#!!

    • BloodShed

      You sound like a racist 12 year old. Your childish, selfish, and demanding attitude is the exact reason the hackers have been leaving the scene. No one owes you anything.

      You don’t even know what you’re talking about. The only jailbreak that anyone is asking money for is offered by a Russian software security company. I assume by “German”, you mean i0n1c. He’s not releasing his jailbreak at all; because of babies like you.

      It’s too bad pod2g didn’t release the jailbreak early. It’d have been nice if you bricked your device since you clearly need a lesson in patience and respect.

      • Lee

        well said 🙂 you rock 🙂

  • Skippy

    Atv 3 will be soon enough ” I hope”
    Haven’t gotten an iPad yet. Don’t see the need for one.

    But. I know a lot of people sure are going to be happy.

  • Mr.White

    pod2g, please change your logo man. If there ever was a internet street junkie, you would be a definition of it. I mean…not even 2003-internet users would dare use such s**t logos…

    • Cozzz

      His logo is fine. He’s a hacker not a fukin designer. Let him worry about releasing this jailbreak, not looking pretty in the process.

      • Lee

        Leave it be 🙂 its cool

  • Azzman

    I have the i pad 4G wi-fi and 4G Sim Card model ( i’m assuming that’s ipad 3 ). Apple are a bunch of tards for making it so us Aussies cannont use 4G network on it here. I have 2 things:
    1) HURRY UP WITH THE 5.1.1 Jailbreak already ! 😛
    2) Is there any way a jailbreak fix of some sort would be able to fix the non use of 4G in Australia?

    • Azzman

      Oh yeah by the way. Thanks a s***load for all the Jailbreaks. HELL APPRECIATED!!!

    • lanky

      No its a limit of the chip as far as I understand.

  • cliff

    Your always going to get one who rants and raves about it not being out yet.
    It’s free, so whats a bit of waiting for it to be released, it will be here when it’s ready.

  • haggard

    you say
    “Only remains iPad2,4 now but we need the actual device.”
    i have a iPad 2,4 (iPad 2 R2) i would gladdly let you test it on mine

    and a big thank you for all your hard work

  • Frank

    Just imagine they release it early and it has a bug and now millions of devices are made to paper weights in an hour. Relax when it’s ready and stable we will get it ……..damn……

  • Samuel

    Guys you need to get refund for the donation you gave this re****red. He keep promising nothing happen. We all should dump his jailbreak and move to android. I really hate pod2g. I wish I can give this SMS to his phone .

    • Slick

      Please dump it
      Android is waiting for u

    • Olaf

      Not we, but rather, YOU, should go to android. Jackass.

    • John

      Not another Jackass !!!! they sure are coming out of the woodwork this morning. Yes dump your apple device, it’s not for you….go get something else you wally

  • Samuel

    Guys you need to get refund for the donation you gave this re****red. He keep promising nothing happen. We all should dump his jailbreak and move to android. I really hate pod2g. I wish I can give t to his phone .

    • Guy

      I know, I’m with you buddy, f*k this guy and f*k his jailbreak.

  • I0nic1

    All these negative posts sound to me like I0nic trying to piss off Pod2g into not releasing his jailbreak. Guess what buddy, he is smarter than you. So in my Soup nazi voice, “NO MILLIONS FOR YOU” and in my Nelson Muntz voice. “HA HA”. Go troll somewhere else.

      I would hope i0n1c is not that immature. But I agree that it’s likely the same person.

    • Lee

      Right on 🙂

      Keep up the good work boys 🙂

  • Will

    It’s always worth for waiting.

  • P4aky

    Patience is a virtue.
    All good things come to those who wait.
    The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.
