Absinthe jailbreak now available for Windows Two days ago, the iOS jailbreaking "dream team" of the iPhone Dev Team, Chronic Dev Team and pod2G began offering a jailbreak solution for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users.
Unfortunately for those with A5 iOS devices, the untethered jailbreak tools required OS X.

Today, the "Absinthe" tool is available for Windows users. Additionally, "the iPhone Dev Team has announced its command-line interface tool is now ready for download. The tool uses the same system as Absinthe to jailbreak, but allows users to go through the motions step-by-step, with the aim being to isolate any bugs that occur during the process. The team intends to update its GUI-based application, redsn0w "once all the bugs in the flow are worked out,'" explains Verge.

Users who want to jailbreak their iPhone 4S or iPad 2 can use Absinthe which will rely on the Chronic Dev Team's servers via a VPN tunnel. Because of this, there is no guarantees your jailbreaking will be successful the first time.
