Over a Million iOS Devices Jailbroken Using Absinthe 2.0

greenpois0n absinthe

pod2g and the Chronic Dev team released Absinthe 2.0 on Friday, which allows users to jailbreak their iOS devices running iOS 5.1.1. It was also the first jailbreak for the new iPad (3rd generation iPad).

Chronic Dev team has just revealed that more than a 1 million new iOS devices have been jailbroken since Absinthe 2.0 was released.

Chronic Dev team has shared the following numbers:

Some stats since release of #Absinthe – 211,401 jailbroken iPad3’s and 973,086 devices newly jailbroken! #JBFTW ! ;D

This means thatΒ 1,184,487 new iOS devices were jailbroken using the Absinthe jailbreak in less than 3 days. Earlier in the year, almost a million devices (953,232) were jailbroken in 3 days using the Absinthe jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 and iOS 5.

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.

Have you jailbroken your iOS device using Absinthe? Let us know in the comments.

    • BigBossSnake

      Restore it and jailbreak it. Make sure to right click back up 1st before doing so. Had to do that on my iPhone 4, but use SnowBreeze instead actually.

  • DJ

    Is it worth waiting for the release of redsnow? We’ve gotten our 4s on the previous jailbreak but want to preserve the baseband just incase ultrasnow comes out with an unlock.

  • Hmmm?

    Has anyone experienced any bugs. Usually I wait a week or two so they can be fixed but it seems like it is safe to jailbreak.

  • Tyler

    I updated to iOS 5.1.1 and jailbroke my phone but now that I have I seem to be having some problems. Whenever I try out a theme 3 of my apps don’t change (camera, pictures , mail). When I go into sbsettings and press hide they don’t even seem to show a stock icon, but on the springboard te do. Help please!

    If you have an iPad 2 and are wondering if you have the iPad 2,1 or the iPad 2,4 then download linpack it’s a free small benchmark app and will tell you when you run it

  • Carey

    I have an iPhone4 and waited until Absinthe 2.0 was released to update to 5.1.1. It didn’t work but 2.02 was released. I can’t get any farther with that either. It freezes 1/2 way. Of course I didn’t save the SHSH blobs for first because I forgot. It is working “unjailbroken” but I miss my jailbreak!! Tips?? πŸ™

  • Juancho

  • ferne

    • Carey

      Thanks. I did a factory reset but didn’t try someone else’s computer. I’ll do that. Cross your fingers…I hate no jb!
