Update on iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak For iPad2,4

iPad 2 users probably know by now that Absinthe 2.0.x released few days back by iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak team does not support the $399 iPad 2 Wi-Fi only model (iPad2,4).

The good news is that the jailbreak team is working hard to add support for iPad2,4 to Absinthe 2.0 – the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak.

iOS hacker – planetbeing tweeted:

Need someone with an iPad2,4, can upload 200 MB quickly, knowledge of FTP. Send screenshot of Absinthe not working for confirmation.

He quickly got a response from a iPad2,4 user.

Now that they have access to the device, it remains to be seen, how much time it will take to add support for iPad2,4 model to Absinthe.
