If this post is delayed at all, it is because the entire internet is melting as thousands, and perhaps millions, of individuals clamor to download the latest untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. This is the first untethered jailbreak for A5-based devices running iOS 5, and the first untethered jailbreak altogether for the iPhone 4S.
The exploit is similar to the one released a few weeks ago for A4-based devices, but incorporates some tweaks from the iOS hacking “dream team” of pod2g, MuscleNerd and the whole Dev-Team. The release encompasses iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405), 5.0.1 (9A406); and iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405). If you haven’t backed up your SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella yet, do so right away, as Apple will likely accelerate the release of iOS 5.1 as a result of this jailbreak.
Released currently for OS X with the name Absinthe, Windows and Linux versions are coming later. It looks like the website is getting hammered right now, but we have a working link below.
