How to get Absinthe 2.0 working again on OS X Mountain Lion

If you've got OS X Mountain Lion and you've recently tried to jailbreak using Absinthe 2.0 you more than likely realized that OS X Mountain Lion either won't let you open Absinthe or the program won't actually load. After a bit of research, a sharp reader over at iDownloadBlog managed to find a workaround that will allow you to run it again.

If you know what you're doing, you can head on over there and blast through the instructions. If you're not as familiar with OS X, keep reading for a step-by-step walkthrough with screen shots.

  1. Right click on the Absinthe icon and choose Show Package Contents.
  2. Absinthe show package contents
  3. Now navigate to Contents > MacOS and you'll see a list of Absinthe packages.
  4. Right click on the Absinthe 10.6 package and go to Open With and select Terminal
  5. Open Absinthe with Terminal
  6. Terminal will pop up and run some commands on its own and then Absinthe will pop open like normal. From this point you can continue to jailbreak like normal.
