Absinthe V 0.3 for Linux +Download+Guide

If you are following the jailbreak news, you`d know that the Dream Team of hackers has released an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices, namely iPhone 4S and iPad 2 with their Greenpoison tool, Absinthe for Mac and shortly after, Absinthe for Windows users was released.

The Chronic Dev Team has now released another update version 0.3 for Absinthe bringing support for Linux. There is no need for those who jailbroke with Absinthe v 0.2 to re-jailbreak your device since the update only brings a few cosmetic changes and a fix for a rare bug ,the chances of a regular user encountering are very rare.

Besides, if you try to reapply the jailbreak, the device would refuse since the app detects whether your device is already jailbroken.

As for Linux users, you must be excited, hurry up and download Absinthe for Linux.

Now we will show you how to jailbreak your A5 device on Absinthe for Linux:

Step 1: install the libimobiledevice package on your Linux distribution. This will allow Linux to connect to your iPad 2, iPhone 4S, and other iOS devices.

If you`re on Ubuntu, then this is how you install the libimobiledevice package:
  • In terminal type: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa.
  • Accept any warnings and install.
  • Type: sudo apt-get update.
  • Visit the Ubuntu software center and search for libimobiledevice, and install libimobiledevice-utils. It might then ask you to reboot. Do so, and upon reboot Linux should recognize your device.

Step 3: If you’re on a x86 machine double click absinthe.x86, if you’re on a 64-bit machine (likely) double click absinthe.x86_64 to run Absinthe.
Step 4: Make sure your device detects Absinthe, then click Jailbreak.

Step 5: Let Absinthe finish the entire process, no user intervention is needed until then end. Once the loading bar is complete, find the Absinthe icon on your iDevice’s Home screen, and launch it to complete the jailbreak.
