Absinthe v0.3 Download Updated for Mac, Windows, Now Linux Too


An update has been updated for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak tool, Absinthe. The popular tool has by now exceeded over 1 million downloads in about three days. Version 0.3 has been released and has been updated to include a version for Linux users, as noted by Chronic Dev Team member @pimskeks. As for the changes, he notes the following:

Since people ask: #Absinthe 0.3 only has some cosmetic changes, and a potential bug fix for win32 (only really few people seem affected)

So the latest Absinthe v0.3 only includes some minor cosmetic changes and brings support for Linux. If you don’t have any issues with your existing A5 jailbreak, there’s no need to re-jailbreak. But if you do have issues, trying again with v0.3 is your best bet. Download links below:

    After Jailbreaking my 4S, everything seems to work and all but has anyone noticed that iTunes no longer able to see 4S to sync wireless via wifi? I can only sync now attached with the cable. A known bug, Any fixes?

    Same thing happens without jailbreaking.  Try shutting down iTunes, restarting the Apple Mobile Device service, and then firing up iTunes again.
