Absinthe - iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak

Absinthe is out, it allows a one click untethered jailbreak for all current A5 devices, which are:
  • iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
  • iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1
Usage is quite simple, download; start; connect device; press "Jailbreak"
The process takes quite a while..
 Last step is starting the "Absinthe" app you find on your Homescreen when the Mac-App tells you so.
Which leads you to the Greenp0ison Website which you see shortly before the device reboots.
If this fails (the Greenp0ison servers are currently highly overloaded) go to Settings->General->Network and select the "jailbreak" vpn, enable it, dismiss the error and watch you device reboots.


After the reboot you should have a Cydia app, start it; wait a few seconds; another reboot.

And you are done, enjoy your jailbroken A5 device.
