Absinthe makes my iPhone 4s go down smooth!

hot sugarThe long wait is finally over.  Due to the diligent efforts of EVERYBODY in the scene,  (@pod2g, @planetbeing, @saurik, @pimskeks, @p0sixninja, @MuscleNerd, and @xvolks) we can finally jailbreak our A5 devices.  iPhone 4s and iPad 2 are now jailbroken and untethered with the latest and most complex jailbreak to date.  Works with iOS 5 or iOS 5.0.1.  Representing hundreds if not thousands of man hours (it even takes forever to run).  Enjoy!  i included a donate link at the bottom if you wish to buy them a beer.

iPhone 3gs and Touch 3g users should have their shsh blobs backed up by now! Even if you are not jailbroken!

the easiest way is with umbrella.  the hardest part is to put your phone in restore mode and plug it into a computer to get it’s unique id.  after that, you reboot your phone normally and put it away. it is never modified.  Umbrella is run on a computer and it requires that unique id.  the data is actually retrieved directly from apple’s servers and may differ in version from the software on your devise.  you can even cache your blobs on saurik’s server right form umbrella without ever violating your apple warrantee or modifying your devise in any way.
