After a wait for few days, Chronic DevTeam has come into action yet again and released another version of Absinthe called Absinthe 2.0.4 which brings support for new iPad 2. Unknowingly, Apple changed the internal hardware of the iPad 2, after the introduction of new iPad or iPad 3 to improve the battery performance of the device. This new iPad 2 has new S0C which is 32 nanometer as compared to 45 nanometer S0c in its predecessor.
If you own a new iPad 2, you could now untethered JailBreak on iOS 5.1.1. By just looking at the new iPad, you can’t tell whether you own a new iPad 2 or older iPad 2. It can only be known by checking out the internal architecture or the date of the purchase. The JailBreak is really easy with the availability of Absinthe 2.0.4. All you need to do is to click on JailBreak button in Absinthe once your device is connected to the PC/Mac and wait for the process to complete.
Also, don’t forget to save the SHSH Blobs of iOS 5.1.1. In future, if anything goes wrong, you would be able to revert back if these SHSH Blobs are saved for your device. You can do so with the help of either TinyUmbrella or Redsn0w, considering the fact that the support is provided. Let’s know if you face any issues in the comment section.
