Jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Running iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1

Here is a step-by-step guide to help you jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPad 2 running iOS 5.0, or the latest iOS 5.0.1 firmware. If you have any questions, feel free to drop them in the comment section below.

Before we begin:

  • Note that Greenpois0n Absinthe tool is in its early stage.
  • Be sure to backup your iPhone 4S and iPad 2 via iTunes or iCloud.
  • If you want to unlock your iPhone 4S, stay with iOS 5.0 or build 9A405 of iOS 5.0.1.

We don’t expect any issues when you are jailbreaking your iPhone 4S or iPad 2, but we aren’t responsible if anything happens.

Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 4S

Step one: Download Absinth and extract the .zip file.

Step two: Setup the .DMG file on your Mac.

The window will show progress of the jailbreak, such as:

“Beginning jailbreak, this may take a while”

“Sending initial data” at this time you will notice that “Restoring in Progress” message on your iPhone 4S.

“Waiting for reboot”

“Waiting for device to finish rebooting” as your iPhone 4S is rebooting.

“Preparing jailbreak data”

“Sending payload data”

Step five: Once the process has finished in Absinthe, it will alert you to unlock the screen if necessary and tap the Absinthe icon to finish the jailbreak.

After you have tapped on the Absinthe app, it should load the Greenpois0n site and reboot your iPhone 4S. After it is rebooted, you can find Cydia icon on the homescreen. Congrats! You have successfully jailbroken your iPhone 4S and iPad 2. This jailbreak is sooper easy, right?

Note: Sometimes the jailbreak progress bar is stuck, and it seems like your device (iPhone 4S, in my case) will never get out of the loop. Don’t worry, the progress bar will complete after some time.

    Hi, I just needed to say thank you for taking the time to create a thing worth my time to read. I am all over the Internet and I see so much pointless content about iPhone 4S, that people just created for the reason of placing anything new on their site.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
