Absinthe iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak Gets Bugfix Update

Advertisement

Last week, after following the progress of the efforts to bring an untethered jailbreak to Apple hardware based around its new A5 chip, we finally saw the triumphant arrival of Absinthe, the first such tool to manage the feat. While a huge accomplishment in-and-of itself, some users reported buggy behavior from the tool’s initial release. Just a couple days later now, a new version is out, available for both Mac and Windows platforms and fixing a few of those bugs.

Specific problems targeted in this bugfix release include a problem where you’d see all your apps’ icons whited-out following installation. The other glitch would prevent your phone from performing a reboot after the jailbreak installation process completed. There may be other, smaller bugs caught as well, but those are the only two we’ve heard attributed to this release.

Absinthe 0.2 is currently available for Mac and Windows PCs.
