Greenpois0n Absinthe updated, offers bug fixes and Leopard compatibility

Absinthe, the untethered jailbreak utility for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S has been updated to version 0.4 bringing compatibility with Leopard as well as a few other bug fixes.

  • Mac: added support for OSX 10.5, PPC and Intel CPU
  • added consistency check on startup to make sure required files are in place
  • Windows: fixed bug in payload generator that might cause a crash

If you are already jailbroken on iOS 5 or iOS 5.0.1 on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 there isn't a need to re-jailbreak with the latest update. This update seems to address issues with the process itself opposed with issues on board the device.

In any case, it's good to see the jailbreak "dream team" hard at work to bring Absinthe to more users after it saw wide adoption after initial release.

If you're looking for even more tweaks and utilities to install, check out our guide to the best jailbreak applications for iOS 5 as well as the other jailbreak resources below. You can grab the new version of Absinthe from our downloads section as well.
