iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Absinthe Jailbreak for Windows

Absinthe is released for Windows operating system users as well and it means that you can now Jailbreak your iPhone 4S with simple Windows based application. Jailbreak with Absinthe tool is simple process and almost everyone can do it.

We have also created “how to” guide to make things even simple for non tech savvy. This tutorial will teach how to jailbreak iPhone 4S running the iOS 5.0 firmware and both versions of the iOS 5.0.1 firmware (9A405 and 9A406) using Absinthe v0.4 for Windows.

Before we reveal tutorial I want to say thanks to developers who made this jailbreak happen: Saurik & MuscleNerd, both core members of iPhone Dev Teaam and biggest thanks goes to Chronic Dev Team: posixninja, pod2g, nikias and planetbeing. Together they are called  iOS Super-Hacking “Dream Team.”

How to Jailbreak iPhone 4S With Absinthe for Windows

Before you start: Backup your iPhone 4S data and make sure that you know how to get them back if something goes wrong. This is not commercial software and developers don’t take any responsibility for damage it may cause to your iPhone so double checks if your date is in safe place before you start.

I would recommend to factory reset your device before starting this jailbreak as many users report bugs that where caused because some application where running in background.

Step 1: First you need to download the latest iPhone 4S jailbreak tool to make sure that developer have caught all the errors and you won’t experience any problems during update.


Here you can download latest Absinthe v.04 for windows and find other versions here


Step 2: Once you have downloaded archived folder you have to extract all files to desktop.

Step 3:  Next you need to right click on the absinthe.exe file and then click the Run as administrator option as shown bellow.

Step 4: Now once Absinthe is opened you can now plug your iPhone 4S to USB and click Jailbreak button once your computer recognizes your plugged device.

How to jailbreak iPhone 4S with AbsintheWhen you will click jailbreak button Absinthe will show something similar to iTunes restore process. One moment I noticed “restore in progress” and some other familiar things.

Step 5: Once your iPhone 4S has rebooted you can slide-to-unlock it and then on your homescreen you should notice a new Absinthe icon as shown bellow|:

Tap this Absinthe icon and official GreenPois0n website should load on your internet browser and then iPhone 4s will reboot again. After reboot you will notice that there is no  Absinthe icon but instead it’s replaced with Cydia. Congratulations you have jailbroken iPhone 4s untethered running the  iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 firmware.

Now you can restore your files and enjoy fully jailboken iPhone 4S.

Please don’t update your iPhone 4S to latest version before we haven’t confirmed that it is safe to do so.

    ok i did it all step by step but when i go to anything in cydia to packages it says cannot locate packages? help please

    • divilab February 17, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

      “cannot locate packages” error is show due to high demand from other jailbreak owner side and servers can’t handle this high demand. 
      Just click changes – refresh. If this does not work just turn of Cydia and try it again. If this doesn’t work then restart your iPhone and try again. It will get to work eventually. 
      You can also switch to developer packagesYou have to wait before all packages are loaded, don’t try to search for anything before process is completed otherwise you will have to do it over and over again. 

      These packages needs to be installed once, then there won’t be any problem in future.

    Is iFaith available for Mac ?

    • divilab March 31, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

      Currently iFaith is Windows only but I believe that developers will create a Mac version as well but I don’t have any proof for that.
