How to jailbreak your iPad 2 with Absinthe

About an hour ago, p0sixninja and greenpois0n released the Absinthe jailbreak software for the iPad 2. Now this jailbreak tool is available to the public through the greenpois0n website. I just finished jailbreaking my iPad 2 a few minutes ago and will upload a video with the absinthe iPad 2 jailbreak in a few minutes.

Here are the steps to jailbreak your iPad 2 with the absinthe jailbreak:

Step 1: Download absinthe jailbreak, Direct download for Absinthe jailbreak.

Step 2: Run the absinthe jailbreak on OS X

Step 3: Connect your iPad 2 (or iPhone 4S) to your computer running absinthe jailbreak tool.


Step 4: Be patient while your iPad 2 is being jailbroken


Step 5: Unlock your iPad 2 and look for the Absinthe jailbreak icon, and select that icon (try re-selecting if your get a database error).



Step 6: Your iPad 2 will reboot and the Absinthe icon will change into the Cydia icon


Step 7: Open Cydia and allow it to be configured and reboot again.

Step 8: Enjoy your jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1

Now that you have Cydia on your iPad, you can begin to install the best free Cydia tweaks and a few of the best paid cydia tweaks for your iPad! Some are not iOS 5 compatible yet, but with the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S jailbreak being made available the jailbreak developers will definitely get to work on the updates.
