Here is how you jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 on iOS 5/5.0.1 on Windows using Absinthe.
Step 1: Download Absinthe v0.2 from our Downloads page and extract it
Step 2: Plug in your device and click “Jailbreak.” Your device should reboot and do all kinds of crazy things but it’s supposed to, so don’t worry!
Step 3: Once the process is completed, unlock your device and you should see a Absinthe icon on your springboard
Step 4: Tap the Absinthe icon, it will open a webpage or give you a white screen, and will then reboot your device
Step 5: After the reboot, you should have Cydia
Common Errors and how to fix them:
I have IPAD 2 5.0.1 can i jailbreak unthethed with window now?
It’s normal if it took Long time?
it’s stuck on
waiting for Reboot-not done yet,don’t unplug your device yet!

If you don’t see VPN then you don’t need to do anything with it.

Just done my iPad 2 without any probbs so thank you very much,just one question though after the jailbreak should the battery life on the iPad seem to drain a bit quicker as I can’t work out if it is as I’ve downloaded some more apps and though they might be using more power.

when i try to jailbreak my ipod it says that the device is not supported?
For some reason i did it , a month ago,
And worked perfect,, but i updated,
And lost the jailbroken,
Now i tryied to do it again and didnt work,
As soon as i plug it in,
Sorry but this deviced is not supported,,
if you updated to 5.1 you have to wait for a new JB like i do
thats my exact problem aswell :L
Hi, once i plug in my phone its says that the attached devise is not supported.” The application has failed to start because of its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.” What do I do ?
i plug my ipad 2 with 5.0.1 ver
Sorry but this deviced is not supported
when i connect my device it says sorry attached device is not supported
I have iphone4s , Version is 5.1(9B179) when i connect to jailbreak tool . message will appear , your device not supported ? plz help me what will i do for it ?
yup. i have a brand new, out of the box ipad 2 and absinthe will not jailbreak it.
Telling me ‘this device is not supported’ seems to be the only function of absinthe so far…
I have updated itunes, restored the ipad 2 to factory settings, updated to 5.0.1 from 5.0… I am going to try drinking actual absynthe and go through the process again but i don’t hold much hope. At least it might be fun.
All jokes aside, it’s very frustrating.. The green poison site doesn’t offer much help..just some smart arsed replies such as ‘are you sure it’s an ipad 2 :P’
yes i am. it’s on the box
if anyone has any useful suggestions i would greatly appreciate it 🙂
ipad 2 IOS 5.0.1 plugged into imac mid 2010 running 10.7.3
i have read it may be an imac problem, but i have also read absinthe works so…
in reply to my own comment..
sir…if you spent less time complaining in comments and more time realising that you have IOS 5.1 (for which there is NO jailbreak yet as of 6/5/12)
NOT IOS 5.0.1 (for which there IS absinthe which more than likely does work if you follow instructions properly)
i hope this helps others, like myself, who get frustrated and post before going into settings on their Ipad and clicking on ‘about’
hehe.. i’m an idiot 😛
IOS 5.0.1 good
IOS 5.1 bad (for now)
I downloaded two of the windows redsnow files and they keep coming up as files, it doesnt ask me to jailbreak or anything like that
why the VPN was not on, directly off the connection fails??
Wheres the jailbreak button??
i used to have a black iphone4 which i jailbreaked myself now i have a white one and im trying to jailbreak it but it reboots normally everytime.. why??
