Absinthe iPhone 4S Jailbreak Exceeds 1 Million Downloads in 24 Hours [Update]


Update 1: @MuscleNerd has tweeted over 205,000 new A5 Cydia installs took place Sunday morning.

The Absinthe jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 has exceeded over 1 million downloads in 24 hours, notes @p0sixninja from the Chronic Dev Team to Cult of Mac. The monumental download number was achieved on the first day of the tool’s release on January 20th, which was Mac-only at the time. Windows numbers surely will push the total downloads even higher.

The A5 jailbreak was created by @pod2g and his hacker ‘dream team’, and so far both Mac and Windows versions of the jailbreak have been released. You can check out our quick Mac tutorial here.

Have you jailbroken your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 so far?
