So the history has finally been made with the launching of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for A5 devices by pod2g and Chronic Dev Team. The Cupertino based tech giant had said that it will be almost impossible to jailbreak or hack its A5 devices. And that seemed to be true for close to one year since the launch of iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. The people who wanted to jailbreak their A5 devices couldnâ€™t get it done as hack specialists failed despite their repeated efforts to do so.
There are millions of people across the world who would be very happy to hear that they are now finally free from restrictions imposed by Apple on their devices.
Chronic Dev Team had been trying for close to a year to jailbreak iPad 2 and then iPhone 4S when it was launched around three months ago, but so far that remained a dream. They released some videos showing that they had made some progress, but a really workable jailbreak was not released till yesterday when it became a reality.
Absinthe A5 is the first real jailbreak for A5 devices that include iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. Absinthe A5 is going to make it easy for you to upload a number of applications that you wanted to have on your smart phone or iPad 2, but couldnâ€™t as they were not available on iTunes. Absinthe A5 right now can be uploaded only through Mac. But the jailbreak experts have assured that they are well on the way of launching a solution for Windows as well as Linux.
Things have become very difficult for iOS devices hacking community after the launch of A-5 chip. A Dev Team member admitted it himself saying, â€œI don’t know if any iOS hacker anticipated how much the A5 chip would completely change the game & up the stakes. The endless war we fight to jailbreak has become more & more difficult with each new device released, and our recent battle against A5 only proved this further.”
But before rushing to jailbreak your costly iPhone 4S and iPad 2 please remember that your warranty would be void as soon as you jailbreak your devices.
