Use Absinthe 2.0.2 on Windows To Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 Without Errors [How to]
Here I will show you how to use Absinthe 2.0.2 on Windows to easily jailbreak iOS 5.1.1. This version came to fix all errors that could be recieved during jailbreaking process.
With Absinthe 2.0 release we had great chance to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered on Mac, Windows and Linux after which you could enjoy your jailbroken device. But almost after Absinthe 2.0 release many users complained on many errors during jailbreaking process and iPhone Dev Team launched Absinthe 2.0.1 to fix them. But this version didn’t fix some errors too.
And I wrote you a guide how to fix Absinthe 2.0/2.0.1 not working problems and you can use this guide to solve any error and enjoy 2.0 and 2.0.1 versions on your gadget.
But Apple has updated iOS 5.1.1 to build 9B208 which created big troubles for those who had accidentally updated its iOS versions, simply because previous versions of Absinthe didn’t work on iPhone 4 GSM build 9B208. But if you are iPad 2.4 user then you can’t use this version of Absinthe for jailbreak. You should go here and jailbreak your iPad 2.4 with new Absinthe 2.0.4.
That’s why iPhone Dev Team has updated Absinthe to 2.0.2 to fix that problem too. And I decided to show you how to Absinthe 2.0.2 on Windows to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered.
First you need to do is to update your gadget to iOS 5.1.1 using iTunes or go here to download iOS 5.1.1 firmaware.
