The Chronic Dev Team Updates Absinthe Jailbreak Tool

Last week, the Chronic Dev Team launched Absinthe 2.0: a new jailbreak tool, which has the power to "liberate" our iOS 5.1.1-powered iDevices (even those sporting an A5X-processor). However, on the same day, Apple launched a mysterious new build of iOS 5.1.1 for the GSM iPhone 4 only ("9B208") - naturally, this confused matters, as jailbreakers weren't sure whether Absinthe 2.0 (or 2.01) supported this new build of iOS 5.1.1.

Pod2g Announces: When iOS 6 Launches, We'll Be Ready

Yesterday, @pod2g and his jailbreaker-friends released Absinthe 2.0, which has the power to provide an untethered jailbreak solution for our iOS devices under iOS 5.1.1. However, shortly after releasing the software, it was announced that the jailbreakers already have a part of the iOS 6-jailbreak: according to @pod2g, when Apple launches iOS 6, a jailbreak solution will be ready.

Jailbreak Only: Chronic-Dev Team Develops iOS 4.2.1 Untethered Jailbreak

The Chronic-Dev Team has managed to develop an untethered jailbreak solution for the iPhone 4 under iOS 4.2.1.

According to a recent post on Twitter by the Chronic Dev Team, makers of the infamous SHAtter exploit that will jailbreak all current iOS devices for life (Yes, even your precious Apple TV), the new exploit may disallow the ability to use Installous or similar applications to download cracked App Store apps (note, AppAdvice does not condone the use of such apps) .
