Absinthe untethered A5 jailbreak tool for Apple iPhone 4S and iPad 2 made easy on both Windows and Mac
Now that the Dev Team got around Apple's built-in A5 chip defenses, it released a software for untethered jailbreak of your iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The crew has made it a very simplified process, which rewards you with access to Cydia and all the goodies of jailbroken apps, that make the iPhone and iPad that much more functional.

The tool is called Absinthe (GreenPois0n, we get it), and offers one-click jailbreaking for both Mac, as well as Windows now. If you have been itching to do this, and get access to some of the cool things developers are doing with jailbroken Siri, get the respective Absinthe file for your OS from the source link, and check the instructional video below.

Bear in mind that Absinthe is not an unlocking tool, so if you need to be unlocked, stick with iOS 5.0, this is only for jailbreaking iOS 5.0.1 devices, and you can't come back to iOS 5.0, once you've updated, at least for the time being. Also, don't upgrade to iOS 5.0.2 once it's released, since you will lose the jailbreak.

Its doesn't matter as long as you don't update past 5.0.1 then you can jailbreak the device. If you don't know what u r doing and update thats your own fault.

Not really, considering we can do what your jailbroken ipad can out of the box...
