Chronic Dev Team Brings Absinthe Linux Support, Bugfixes

Advertisement

We just told you last night about a recent update to the iPhone-4S-jailbreaking tool Absinthe, from the Chronic Dev Team. That release brought with it a Windows installer, and attempted to eliminate a few bugs that crept into the previous release. We’ve been waiting for a solution like this to arrive ever since the iPad 2 first introduced the A5 processor, so we’re understandably focused on following the evolution of Absinthe as the last kinks are worked-out. We’ve now learned of a new update to the tool, once again bringing bug fixes and support to new operating systems.

This time around, with Absinthe 0.3, it’s Linux that’s finally tapped for inclusion, letting those of us without MacOS or Windows installs to take advantage of the jailbreak tool. There are some aesthetic changes to the Absinthe installers that don’t really affect functionality any, but the Windows version does see the arrival of one bugfix specific to that release. We haven’t seen the GreenPois0n site updated with the latest release just yet, but you can find downloads through the source link below.
