Can I jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 on 5.1 using Absinthe Greenpois0n Jailbreak? Well, despite our warnings to jailbreakers to keep their hands away from the update button, still we have some unlucky guys falling in this trap. As you know that Apple released 5.1 to fix some issues founded in iOS 5.0.1 and bringing new features such as Siri in Japanese, the ability to delete individual images from Photo Stream and incredibly redesigned camera access on lock screen.
iOS 5.1 new features have stimulated some iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users to hit the silly update button which caused the lose of the unique 5.0.1 Absinthe untethered jailbreak for both iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which took a long time to see the light.
Apple has closed the exploit that was used by Pod2g (the discoverer of the exploit used in 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak with Absinthe) in iOS 5.1 update for both iPhone 4S and iPad 2. What made it difficult, the impossibility of downgrading iPhone 4S / iPad 2 from 5.1 to 5.0.1 even if you have saved SHSH blobs for 5.0.1
- If you have an iPhone4S, the basic rule above is really the only rule: you cannot restore back to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed, no matter what (even if you saved your SHSH blobs).
- If you have an iPad2 with saved 4.x hashes, you can in fact downgrade to that 4.x but you won’t be able to get to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed (even if you saved your 5.0.1 SHSH blobs).
So what know? Currently there is no jailbreak available for iOS 5.1 with Absinthe Greenpois0n jailbreak, as Apple has closed all the possible ways. So if you still running iOS 5.0.1 on your iPhone 4S / iPad 2 and wanna keep your jailbreak, you MUST stay away from iOS 5.1
Jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S / iPad 2 with Absinthe Greenpois0n – Still there is a hope :
Pod2g has just replied on of his fans on Twitter confirming that he is working actively on finding vulnerabilities on 5.1. But you have to know that digging for exploit in devices such as iPad 2 and iPhone 4S (A5-devices) is not the sort of thing that can be developed overnight. We hope that Pod2g will be a lucky guy in finding iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S / iPad 2 soon.
