UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe 2.0

UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe, After releasing of the Absinthe 2.0 for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak was released few minutes to jailbreak iDevices now we will show you how to UnTethered jailbreak iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS on iOS 5.1.1 step by step Guide using Absinthe v 2.0 on windows and MAC.

UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe

How to UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe 2.0 on Windows and MAC:

UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe 2.0, Your iPhone MUST already be on 5.1.1 to start, and like all jailbreak activities you should ensure you have backed up recently!
Be aware, as things stand you cannot install 5.1.1 on your iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS IF Apple have closed the signing window on 5.1.1, even if you have saved SHSH Blobs. Make sure you get 5.1.1 installed before the window closes. For more details on SHSH Blobs.

Jailbreak  Required :

Finally, before you start, consider how much data you currently have on your iPhone and the resources available on your PC. This jailbreak utilises a vulnerability in the Backup and Restore process. Therefore in order to complete the jailbreak Absinthe will perform a backup and restore of your iPhone’s data. This raises a couple of important issues…

You Can Backup and Restore iPhone Using iTunes BackupiCloud BackUp

If you have any problems running Absinthe, see the troubleshooting section at the end. Now, on to the jailbreak…

1. Unzip the download and launch the Absinthe file on your PC:

2. Ensure your iPhone is connected and detected, then press the “Jailbreak” button…

Absinthe will start to work it’s magic! Be advised, the jailbreak takes longer the more data you have on your iPhone 4s, 4, 3gs. Be Patient!

The jailbreaking wizards in the Dream Team pwned the iTunes sync, backup, and restore process to jailbreak your device…

You need to keep the faith and let it do it’s thang!

Hang on it there baby…

The last stage takes roughly as long as the first, so bear with it. It will appear as though nothing much is happening…

Finally, it will finish and tell you to unlock your device and press the jailbreak icon. DONT disconnect your Device yet!
UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe 2.0 -8
After the program informed you that jailbreak is ‘Almost done’.

And you should notice that the Cydia icon installed .

That’s it! You are jailbroken untethered on 5.1.1 with an iPhone! Wasn’t that easy? 

Troubleshooting Absinthe 2.0!

If the server is down and you get an Error establishing a database connection message then tap the Settings icon on your springboard and turn on VPN.

UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe

You will get a configuration error; however, after about a minute your device will reboot with Cydia on the Springboard!

UnTethered Jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS Absinthe

First of all be patient and trust that it is working, particularly on the last stage! If you have lots of data on your device it WILL take a long time at each stage. DO NOT disconnect the iPhone from your PC until you see Cydia on your springboard (unless things have gone wrong of course).

If you get to the end and launching “Absinthe” does nothing, open Settings and turn ON the VPN setting which has been added to your device. Make sure you don’t disconnect the iPhone yet! It should reboot and Cydia will then be visible.

If this does not work, disconnect and start again. Absinthe will let you know it needs to recover the process. Let it do this. Then disconnect again and run the jailbreak again! But if your iPhone has lots of data on it, consider doing a clean restore as laid out in the preparation section this time!

If Absinthe crashes on OSX, first make sure you are running the jailbreak as an Administrator of the system. It seems as though folks have also had success by enabling the root user on OSX. To enable root, try the following:

  1. Open “System Preferences” and choose “Users & Groups”
  2. Click the padlock and authenticate to unlock the settings
  3. Choose “Login Options”
  4. Click “Join” (or “Edit”)
  5. Click “Open Directory Utility”
  6. Click the padlock and authenticate to unlock the settings (if required)
  7. From the “Edit” menu, choose “Enable Root User”
  8. Provide a password for the root user.

If Absinthe crashes on Windows, again, make sure you are running as an Administrator account.
Windows7 and Vista users should set the compatibility properties for the Absinthe executable by right clicking on the EXE file, choosing “properties”, switching to the Compatibility tab, and selecting “Windows XP (Service Pack 2)” and “Run this program as an administrator”.

The following screen shows what the properties look like for Windows7 users:

  6. asdf says:

    After the reboot it is stuck on the screen “Waiting for process to complete” a few minutes, then “Hmmm, something aprear to be wrong…”,

    Jailbreak failed!

    I reset my iPhone 4S before the jailbreak so there shouldn’t be much data to process.

    Any idea?

  16. nikkichua says:

    will it remove all my files on my iphone? what’s the use of the backup and restore?

  17. RP says:

    The less files in the iDevice, the faster the Jailbreak process is. They recommend that you BACK UP your files, and reset your phone then jailbreak it. Then RESTORE all your files later with iTunes. So everything you had will be.. well restored.

  104. Chris says:

    ok little while ago I updated my JB phone to 5.1.1 well lets just say its stuck in recovery mode. I tried TU to push it out of recovery mode and now it gets stuck in a endless boot process that goes nowhere. I have tried everything under the sun and this isn’t my first rodeo. Absinthe only will recognize the iPhone in normal working mode. So I was hoping this new JB would fix it…Any good suggestions before i throw this POS 4s on the ground?

  105. dennis says:

    I also am getting the same issues…it just opens command prompt not any actual program….

  107. Chris says:

    I had the same Problem, with my other 4s so I had to restore it in windows then jailbreak it in windows. For some odd reason it wouldn’t work in mac for me.

  108. kymotsujason says:

    I tried to jailbreak multiple times with no success.
    However, I was finally able to jailbreak it at last =D

    Be sure to backup your device first.

    What you have to do is restore your device directly from itunes. (Click the restore button and wait for it to finish)
    Once finished, you must set up the device as you normally would. Set it up as a new device, and then start absinthe.

    This should work for most people who have a problem.

  109. Chris says:

    try it in windows

  110. Chris says:

    Thanks! I restored using settings on my iphone and no success. This worked first time for me too.

  111. hydropsyche says:

    If you get an error about needing to be an administrator (windows 7) you might have to do this:
    1) logout of your computer and log back in as the actual administrator. Logging in as a user in the administrators group does not count!
    2) right click on the exe, choose properties, and change compatability to win xp sp2, et as describe in the post above.
    3) right click on the icon and run as administrator.

    *** To anyone getting the console screen that extracts all the files and then does nothing:



    find that folder in your documents, or /downloads, and THEN run the new, same name, .exe out of the folder.


  141. Dexdin says:

    For all who are gettings errors “there something wrong try again” or done but no Cydia.

    Restore your phone in Itunes like factory settings do the intial setup of the phone activate. Then try jailbreaking again it should work then restore from your backup enjoy guys… glad I can help and dont forget to donate to our iphone heroes :0

  142. Kevin says:

    Read my comment below.

  143. William says:

    That’s probably Cydia. That means there is a problem with the web server, so when Cydia tried to load it’s webpage Cydia’s server was probably having a problem. Try again later.

    Thanx i jailbroke my iphone 4s 5.1.1 today

  175. spiritualwolf says:

    First off, I want to say how well 2.1.1 worked!! It was very simple and was actually very fast! I have about half of my 64GB 4s full and it took like 5-10 mins only!!

    I do have one question tho. Is there a way to transfer my cloned apps from my old phone to this phone? Or do I just have to reclone the apps again and set all of them back up?

  176. spiritualwolf says:

    Crap, sorry…I meant 2.0.1

  177. Keith says:

    Getting an error “cannot connect to downloadd” dies at that point any suggestions?

  178. Wander says:

    I jailbreaked in less than 2 minutes. Thank You.
    Just quick question: Why do I need the restore firmware file? The entire process did not ask for that file.

  179. Craig says:

    Stuck on “Sending initial jailbreak data”. Any suggestions?

  180. nathan says:

    Hi, If anyone knows what I can do with my somewhat unique situation it will be greatly appreciated! I have 3gs 4.3.3 JB blobs saved without active sim card. I’m not in a rush to unlock my phone for simple mobile as I’m sure it will be out soon (if I’m wrong or if there is a way to do so now 5/25/12, Please let me know). Anyway, absinthe says my device is not supported, which is to be expected with 4.3.3. Do I need to restore to 5.1.1 in itunes without activation and then jailbreak with absinthe? Please let me know if there is a better way to do this as I don’t want to do anything stupid and brick my phone. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this.

  181. kel says:

    Seriously, i’m stuck at getting ready to jailbreak and it say sending jailbreak, keep waiting and it crashed. NOt yet reach the 2nd stage. I try going to compatibility to window xp2 and setting it to administrative rights yet it still cant work. Nothing else i can do now.

  186. fusion1 says:

    I jailbroke my iphone 4s using the Absinthe v 2.0.1. I was able to do so with my Windows Vista machine. The problem I am facing is now with Cydia sources When I try to add sources, I get errors. I also cannot download anything from BigBoss due to the errors I get. Is there a another release required to fix the issue?

  187. George says:

    Great job and great work done by genius people!
    It was a peace of cake to jailbreak iPhone 4S. Thanks a lot

    Though the source servers are too busy therefore not easy to add sources with fast speed

    i have iphone 4 on 5.1.1 it was on 9B206 so i tried the Absinthe jailbreak with no joy at all i followed all instructions to the letter. i even downloaded the absinthe update to the latest version and im still getting the above message. i performed a itunes update and then got 9B208, no issues i thought. again got latest absinthe update and still no joy…..i got above message again…
    i then went on to jailbreak tethered which worked fine through redsn0w. after fiddling around on cydia i managed to freeze my phone. it wouldnt restart through tethered boot. so i had to re install through itunes which took ages. NOW redsn0w cannot recognize latest version i have, tried sn0wbreeze again to no avail. so once again ive just restored via itunes (shift restore) any idea from anyone why absinthe comes up with the message Sorry, attached device is not supported. JUST FOR your info i have the LATEST absinthe, updates 9B208…..
    any help would be most welcomed.

  267. Rob says:

    Hello. I am new to jailbreaking but became interested when I saw how easy your program made it seem. After jailbreaking my phone this weekend, I made a number of different changes and tweaks to the phone. The phone was operating even better with the tweaks than it was b/4 it was jailbroken. This morning, I powered the phone off. When I turned the phone back on, it had reverted to the layout, appearance ,etc .that it was b/4 it was jailbroken. My email and safari are blank (although all other programs still work). And Cydia does not launch. All the Cydia related add-ons that had been in my settings are no longer there. Is there any easy fix to this without having to go start from square one again? The phone was so awesome while it was jailbroken that I would love to be able to restore it to the way it was before I rebooted.

  268. Rob says:

    I’m not completely sure the following is a problem with the jailbreak itself or whether it’s something else.

    I have a 3GS, previously using the tethered 5.1 redsnow jailbreak but now on absinthe 2.0.2 on 5.1.1. Since I upgraded my 3G service has gone to shit. It’s not completely broken, but it loads everything at what seems like Edge speeds. I am getting a ton of timeout errors. I jailbroke it yesterday and was on wifi all day so did not notice until this morning when I left the house. I’m back on wifi now and everything is fine. Anyone else having this kind of issue? The only packages I have installed outside of the defaults are SBSettings, Activator, BiteSMS, NoNewsIsGoodNews and Five Icon Dock. I know it’s not BiteSMS and Five Icon Dock as I installed these after already noticing the problem.

  269. chdmillr says:

SO PLEASE ANYONE WHO CAN HELP PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

    iPhone 4S 64GB iOS 5.1 Jailbroke it myself easily took a minute and a half to jailbreak (erased content and settings first) running smoothly and perfectly no bugs no nothing :) absinthe untethered jailbreak all the way :) :) :) :) :)

  274. Anonymous_bloke says:

    its because you restored to original settings which changed the OS of your phone to iOS 5.0 instead of 5.1.1, the one which absinthe supports. Instead try erasing content and settings from the general tab in settings in your iphone after updating it to ios 5.1.1 :)

  275. Anonymous_bloke says:

    do not restore update to 5.1.1 then erase content and settings from the settings app in iphone then try jailbreaking

    trying to JB with Absinthe 2.0.4 for iphone 4s 5.1.1…
    ran as administrator but still doesnt work~!
    I tried it many times and it didn’t work on Windows Vista. It crashes on the second step. It says unplug and replug to jailbreak. Once you do that it tries to recover the files from last jailbreak then says unplug replug again. After all that it just repeats recovering files unplug replug just to recover files again.

  280. kiran says:

    jus followed all the steps carefully and used absinthe v2.0.4 and it worked like charm,jus took me 15 odd minutes to have my idevice jailbroken!! awesome work guy..three cheers to the dev team..will dfntly donate to the dev team!

    Tried 10 times to JB my iPhone 4 5.1.1 (9B206) with absynthe 2.0.2 and 2.0.4 on my win7/64 with/without administrators rights.
    Each time absynthe is crashing and i only get a windows message saying that absynthe is not working anymore. It’s crashing at second step (sendint data). Each time i launch again absynthe who detects the failed JB and cleans everything before i disconnect/reconnect my iPhone to launch again the JB.
    iTunes is closed, 4.6 Gb available on my iPhone, 5.7 Gb available on my desktop (where i have put absynthe).

    If anybody has an idea ? Thanks in advance

    its being dumb because i had recently jailbroken it the same way but had to restore because i was going to sell it, then
    i ended up not selling and i tried rejailbreaking and it says ” sorry, that device is not supported” on my iphone 4 5.1.1

    Does this Jailbreak work on iPhone 4 CDMA?

  290. Robin Dumlao says:

    Okay one more question guys, I have an iPhone 4 CDMA under Verizon here with BB 4.2.10 and the thing is I won’t be able to use this as a phone due to my location (Philippines) therefore I have to accept the fact that I will only be able to use it as an iPod touch, Now I am thinking of Updating it to iOS 5.1.1 so i can take advantage of the Absinthe Untehtered Jailbreak, I have acquired the 5.1.1 IPSW file already but before I restore this, I’d like to know if WOULD I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS ACTIVATING THIS PHONE SINCE I’M HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES? Thanks in advance fellas!

  291. PaulisOrdo says:

    Hi Matt, just select the file (dont double click) and extract it to your desktop. A folder will be created on your desktop too. Double click the exe file inside the folder.

  299. warren paul parker says:

    I used this guide and absinthe 2.0.2 to jailbreak my iphone 4 running 5.1.1 build 9B208. Worked perfect done in no time, I tried redsn0w and it wiped all my apps and left me with just the weather app, which meant I couldnt make any calls or do anything and had to restore my phone back to factory settings, so beware.

Everything was going great. Then I clicked on Cydia and my Phone Text and Safari apps disappeared. I can’t make calls. I can’t send texts. I cannot see Contacts. I cannot restore. This is FUBAR. I can receive calls and texts but cannot make them. WTF, please please help.

I turned the iphone off and turned it back on and then it would show the apple logo and then turn itself off repeatedly. I tried to restore to ios 5.1.1 and it failed with about 10 percent done. I’ve tried a bunch of different fixes such as redsnow, tinyumbrella, recboot, irecovery, iREB, blackra1n, recovery mode toolbox, etc. I don’t care how i get it to restore itself, i just want an iphone again.

  390. GottaLoveIdiots says:

    You really need to learn to read. And don’t try to do stuff if you are a complete computer illiterate. Jailbreak with abisynthe does only JAILBREAK, meaning it allow you to install applications not signed by apple, which ofter offer functionalities forbidden in the app store (like emulators). If you have a carrier locked iphone, you need to do an UNLOCK in addition to jailbreak. That is accomplished by using Ultrasn0w or Redsn0w. Jeez.

    Which jailbreak do i use for the 9b208 firmware for iphone 4

  428. This tutorial works perfectly, thank you so much! I really think Absinthe is a great utility; the Chronic Dev Team did a great job. I hope they’ll update it to Jailbreak iOS 6!

  429. Andrei says:

    I’m trying to open Absinthe on Mountain Lion OS and nothing is happening – downloaded fine, and when I click on the icon, it asks to make sure I want to open the file. I click “open” and nothing happens. I tried it after enabling as a root user, too, as suggested above. Any suggestions?

  430. dana says:

    Its extracting the files you need to the same location as the first .exe you downloaded. Check the folder and open the absinthe.exe

  431. sslee says:

    i have tried several times to jailbreak on laptop & desktop, however while sending initial data, Windows detected error and stopped the jailbreak process … how to solve this?

  432. Richard says:

    Every time I download the Absinthe 2.0 thing, when I open it, it says “Application not found” honestly what do I do?! I think I’m very limited because I can’t get into admin account. I only have 1.38 GB left on this computer. HELP!!

  433. Octie says:

    NEED HELPS !!!!
    I’m facing the same issue as sslee mentioned above; while sending initial data, Windows detected error and terminate Absinthe.
    I’m running Absinthe 2.0.4 on Win 7 64-bit. Disabled Passcode & Auto Lock function on my iPhone 3GS. Is there anything else I have to check in order to run it successfully?

  441. atty says:

    I used Absinthe 2.0 to jailbreak my phone, everything worked and i have Cydia working, my problem was i was never prompted to unlock and that’s what i need!!! can anyone help me to unlock my phn?.

  442. Joe Leubitz says:

    I ran Absinthe fine. However, when I clicked Cydia, if said it was creating a file index. Then Most apps (not all) disappeared, including phone, mail, music… I have a paperweight. HELP!

  443. Joe Leubitz says:

    I decided to try a SYNC with the APPS box checked. That brought back most of them EXCEPT Settings, Phone, Email, Music… i.e., the builtin apps. NOW WHAT?

  444. Joe Leubitz says:

    I really needed the phone, so I did an iTunes “Restore” which wipes out everything and installs 5.1.1 and my backup. Back to normal but without jailbreak. If anyone can figure out what happened, I’d like to know so that I can try to jailbreak it again.

  445. n31ln4n says:

    I start the jailbraker up, it the loading bar does the first 2 chunks and then it crashes saying “assertion failed” anybody know anything about this?

  446. Nette says:

    I followed the instructions. Now, my phone says it can’t activate. Please advise.

  447. blahblah says:

    I understood everything untill this point:

    “Be aware, as things stand you cannot install 5.1.1 on your iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS IF Apple have closed the signing window on 5.1.1, even if you have saved SHSH Blobs. Make sure you get 5.1.1 installed before the window closes. For more details on SHSH Blobs.”

    WHAT!? SHSH Blobs? Apple closed what signing? WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!!!!

  448. African Jay says:

    Guys, pls help me out here… I have a factory unlocked 4S running on 5.1.1 and I want to Jailbreak it via Absinthe; will this work okay, or it leave my phone “locked out?”

  449. Andy Gaillard says:

    I downloaded absinthe and installed but it wont recognize my iphone i have a 4s v5.1.1 what can i do

  450. stuartL says:

    Try right clicking iTunes when you’re opening it and selecting ‘run as administrator’ – this should work for you.

  451. just curious says:

    mine gives me the error “the URL can’t be shown.” how to fix that?

  452. Arjun says:

  453. guntherbenavides says:

    I tried to use Absinthe 2.0 on an iphone 3gs however I do get an “device not activate.” I cannot activate my phone because I have an invalid sim card.

    Please tell me what to do if Absinthe has a work around for this scenario.

  454. Jamil says:

    for some reason it doesnt recognize my iphone, it just says plug in idevice to begin

  455. Justin says:

    Its not detecting my device. I keep getting the greed out jailbreak button. Is it my computer? Was trying it on an IBM but it has windows xp. I’m stuck. I reset everything on my 3GS . I tried to restart the computer in safe mode and still not detecting I guess. Still greyed out button.

  456. Batman says:

    Very good program

  457. Quantum says:

    Does this still work now that apple has closed the SHSH signing window? I’m still running 5.1.1, but I didn’t save the blobs so I won’t be able to restore to it if something goes wrong.

  458. Scott says:

    Thank you guys so much! I could not believe that the personal hotspot is blocked by a fee. The app worked perfectly. I first tried it on a old 3gs I had lying around with no service but hooked up to my wifi. I totally forgot to run in XP mode when I hooked up my 4 to it and it crashed, twice before I figured out what my dumb, stoned ass did wrong. Thanks for making this as easy as freaking possible.

  459. saratdusta says:

    so, since update on itunes or OTA already signed to iOS 6, so is it impossible to update and jailbreak to 5.1.1, mine is iphone 4s 5.0.1 and using sim gevey to unloack BB. any idea if i wnato to upgrade to 5.1.1?

  460. Joe says:

    I am having the same issue. I backed up everything, Absinthe is up but just not detecting my 4s. Chronic-Dev Absinthe – Versions 2.0.4 simply says, “Plug in your iDevice to begin.”

    It is connected. I would have made a contribution to support ‘greenpois0n.com’ too!

  461. Chocoju says:

    I have JB using Absinthe, but after 2 weeks, phone is not stable , it will respring not sure if any of the tweaks I installed

    and today it is stuck on white apple logo

    pls help shed some light

    thx alot

  462. Chocowi says:

    I’m using it now for long time and it works fine. The problem is not the jailbreak itself. Most of the time its what you install on it after jailbreaking it!

    I wish i could help you about your re-spiring issue but there is so many things that can make this happen.

    I would say, if your not confortable enough with this, Don’t jailbreak! :) Have a good day.

  494. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  495. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  505. to let house says:

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
