Step by Step guide on iOS 5.1.1 untethered Jailbreak via Absinthe 2.0

Yes, After a long wait, finally iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak has finally been released. You can now download and start your jailbreak via the below links:

Absinthe2.0 MacOSX (10.5, 10.6, 10.7)

Absinthe2.0 Windows (XP/Vista/Win7)

Absinthe2.0 Linux (x86/x86_64)

But how do you proceed with the jailbreak? Don’t worry, just read the below guide:

Step by step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 using Absinthe 2.0 which I have just done:

1. Download Absinthe from the links above

2. Backup your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Be sure to always do proper backup before proceeding with any version upgrade or jailbreak process. You can either backup via iCloud or to your computer. It is recommended to backup to your computer, as it will be faster. Especially when we need to do phone restore later on.

3. This step is optional, but Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Teams recommends us to clear all data in your iOS device before jailbreak your device. This will speed up the jailbreak process, and also have a smoother jailbreak process.

Anyway to clear all data in your device, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings.

4. Connect your iOS devices to your computer, be it Mac or PC.

5. Open up Absinthe 2.0 which you have just download

6. Click on Jailbreak button and wait for it to finish.

7. Once jailbreaking is done, go back to iTunes, on the left panel right click your device and select “restore from backup” and restore the copy that you have just backup.

8. That’s all, once the restore process is done, then you will have your Jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 device!

Hope you will have a smooth process jailbreaking, and enjoy! 🙂

 


5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak will most likely be available by this week!

5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak available by this week.

The long awaited 5.1.1 untethered Jailbreak should be available for all iOS Devices other than 3rd Generation Apple TV. Thanks to pod2g and MuscleNerd who have been working very hard for Absinthe 2.0 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1.

For those whose iPhone and iPad are already at iOS 5.1.1, please wait awhile more, once the jailbreak is ready we will be reporting it asap.

Here are some information which MuscleNerd has posted to his website:

* All info below is tentative and subject to last minute refinements
* @pod2g’s 5.1.1 jailbreak+untether is working out great. All devices are covered except for AppleTV3,1, which currently has no path for jailbreaking.
– the initial 5.1.1 plan used a kernel exploit from @westbaer which unfortunately precluded use in iPod3,1 and iPhone2,1
– @planetbeing stepped up and provided a kernel exploit that covers both of those. Those two JBers are the bomb!
* The 5.1.1 A5 JB is very similar to the A5 5.0.1 JB. @pimskeks has done a tremendous job supporting both 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 in absinthe
* Similar to 5.0.1, there will also be a 5.1.1 CLI “cinject” binary and redsn0w version of the 5.1.1 JB+untether. Absinthe, cinject, and redsn0w will all provide the same JB in different fashions.
– timing is indeterminate. Plans are for this week, but a number of factors can influence that.
* For those wishing to donate, we’ve set up a new 5.1.1 paypal URL:https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=4U6DQGJ2NRVUN
* Please don’t pirate AppStore apps (seriously, please do not).

Cool, I can’t wait for the launch of it! 🙂


iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone are the top 3 most desired gadget among kids for this Christmas!

Nielsen just did a survey, among the kids in US most of them want Apple Products for their Christmas this year! With iPad getting 44%, iPod Touch 30% and iPhone 27%, it seems like Apple is really popular among kids.

Apple really have a very special touch in their design of their products. Kids, Adults and Aged all love to use them. Simple is really the way to go for consumer products as the results and surveys all proved so.

 


Siri ported to iPhone 4 and iPod Touch [Video]

Siri is finally ported to iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Generation! It took Steve Troughton-Smith just a few weeks to perfect the port.

Steve did a interview with 9to5mac.com on his journey to port it over:

Mark: Where do you go from here with the port?

Steven: At this point it’s all about confirming this works across devices, making it reproducible (we got it working on two devices today), and documenting everything. It does require files from an iPhone 4S which aren’t ours to distribute, and it also requires a validation token from the iPhone 4S that has to be pulled live from a jailbroken iPhone 4S, and it’s about a 20-step process right now.

Mark: In its current state, is the port 100% functional, is there anything you would like to see work better?

Steven: Yes, it seems to be 100% functional. I’m working on the rough edges, but everything that works on the iPhone 4S seems to work here.

Mark: Do you ever see Siri showing up in Cydia (or another jailbreak store) for non natively supported devices?

Steven: No, I could not be a part of that. I have no doubts that others will package this up and distribute it quasi-illegally, or try and sell it to people. I am only interested in the technology and making it work; proving that it works and works well on the iPhone 4 and other devices.

Mark: So, you also got Siri working on the fourth-generation iPod touch, how is that working out?

Steven: We got chpwn’s iPod touch up and running with Siri after proving it works on my iPhone 4. Unfortunately the microphone on the iPod is nowhere near as good as the iPhone – you will notice that the Siri level meter hardly moves when you talk to it. While it does work, you have to speak loudly and clearly to the iPod.

For the full interview check out 9to5mac, check out the videos on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Generation Siri:

1 Millions iOS Devices jailbroken by Jailbreakme.com

It is just 1 day since Jailbreakme.com is launched, and 1 million iPhone, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod Touch have been jailbroken by it. It is a huge number, much more than what we expected. This might be the largest amount of devices jailbroken on a single day.

To be honest, I would like to know the percentage of devices that was jailbroken. I will bet that 70% or more should be iPad 2, as previous jailbreak methods still can’t jailbreak iPad 2.

Of course, Apple will not just sit back and relax over this matter. Apple’s spokewoman Bethan Lloyd has confirmed that they are “aware of this reported issue and will be developing a fix that will be available in the upcoming software update”. Comex are using a PDF exploit, thus it is treated as a vulnerability for iOS, so I’m sure Apple will be releasing a update very soon.

So before anything comes out and break the Jailbreak, please proceed to Jailbreakme.com and enjoy!

Especially when some testers have leaked out the beta jailbreakme url which allows iOS devices to be jailbroken via Safari.

It is rumored that jailbreakme.com will be officially launch tomorrow 6 July. Let’s wait and see if iPad 2 jailbreak is finally coming to us.

It is a break through, and Comex is now planning to relaunch Jailbreakme.com for iOS 4.3.3 and below. Yes you might say they are late in the game, you can already jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 with redSn0w or pwnagetools. But Jailbreakme is reportly able to jailbreak iPad 2, yes iPad 2! The long awaited iPad 2 jailbreak might come in 2 weeks time.

So stay tuned and let’s hope we can see jailbreak for iPad 2 as soon as possible!


Apple back to School is not giving out iPod Touch but $100 iTunes Gift Card

Apple’s Back to School Promo

Apple support students by having Back to School Promotion yearly, giving special discounts to all Mac Hardwares like iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air. Of course not just discount, but Apple used to give out free iPod Touches, but this year they are not giving out any. But don’t feel disappointed, Apple are giving out $100 iTunes Gift Cards to all students. Yes, you might feel you are short-changed as we used to get $200+ iPod Touches for free, but now only getting $100 iTunes Gift Cards.

Why iTunes Gift Cards?

I think that Apple’s decision to give out iTunes Gift Cards is good, although many people will argue otherwise. But from my point of view, which student don’t have iPod or iPhone already? Those that yet to have, might not be interested to have one. That aside, to help students with their school, iPod Touch might not be that useful. But do you know that iTunes Gift Card can be use not only to buy music from iTunes, but Apps from App Store, yes Mac App Store too. So students can buy useful Apps from Mac App Store for note taking, mind mapping or software like iWorks for documentations. Other than App Store and iTunes, students can buy iBooks from iBookStore which is pretty useful.

How about $150?

So overall, I feel that iTunes Gift Cards as a giveaway for Back to School Promotion, I feel is a very very good idea. But I hope Apple can increase the amount from $100 to $150! Yes, $50 might not seems alot, but to a student, he/she can buy the whole iWorks suite of softwares, or other cool apps. We are not sure if students in Singapore are getting iTunes Gift Cards too, as nothing has been announced. We will post a update once we got any news.

 


iCloud – Free, Calendar, Documents, Photo Stream and iTunes for iOS and Macs

iCloud is free

iCloud is free. This is the greatest news I have heard so far in WWDC 2011. Why? Because it is free for both iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and even your Macs. Now we have a fully integrated cloud system running through all our iOS Devices and Macs.

Calendar on iCloud

Calendar will be sync to iCloud, so all your calendar data on your Macs, iPad or iPhone will be sync to the same data, and can be access via any devices.

Now data on your iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch will be backup daily to iCloud, so you won’t need to backup them via any PC/Macs. Data like purchased music, apps, books, camera rolls(photo & video), device settings and app data will be backup to icloud. So if we get a new iPhone, we can just key in our iTunes account ID and password, everything will be sync back to the new iPhone.

Documents on iOS devices and Macs will be able to be stored on iCloud. Not only documents can be stored on iCloud, it will be pushed to all iOS devices on the same account. It works like dropbox.

Photo Stream for all iOS and Macs!

Photo Stream is one of my favorite addition. Now everytime when I take a photo on my iPhone or iPad, it will be automatically uploaded to iCloud, which you can view on any iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Macs!

The cool thing is we not only can view, we also can save it down to the devices, like Macs. So we don’t need sync-ing virtually! Which save alot of effort! Pretty sweet. I love it! iCloud will store all photos for 30 days, and for the last 1000 photos. Of course, the copy in your devices will not be deleted.

Music can be downloaded via iTunes on up to 10 devices. So you can purchase 1 song, and redownload it up to 10 devices over the wifi. So you won’t have to sync up to copy the songs over. Pretty neat, although we in Singapore don’t really get to buy music over iTunes.

iTunes Match for iCloud

iTunes Match is a service that will “backup” your iTunes music into iCloud for all the music in your iTunes library. Of course you will think that it will take weeks to upload. No iTunes Match uses a very unique service and software that will scan your library and match all the music Apple already have in their store. They will only upload those songs that are not in their library, so it will only take minutes to upload your whole library! Pretty cool! But it is a paid service at $24.99 per year for iTunes Match.
