Absinthe 2.0.1 Released To Address Various Jailbreak Bugs.

Soon after Absinthe 2.0′s release earlier today, the interwebs started to fill with reports of various bugs from the new jailbreak. The biggest issue was simply a failed jailbreak. For some, the jailbreak would appear to properly complete, though various things would not work. Other instances, however, saw Absinthe 2.0 app simply throwing up installation errors. Other issues that we noticed included weird photo upload problems with Tweetbot as well as an audio playback issue that saw the stock Music.app (and any 3rd party app pulling from the local library that Music.app uses) failing to work — streaming audio worked though. That said, a simple restore and re-jailbreak fixed all of our issues.

Thankfully, the various hackers/developers behind Absinthe 2.0 have already issued a new .0.1 update that aims to address random hanging issues during the jailbreak process. If you use the new Absinthe 2.0.1, be sure to let us know how it goes as well as any issues it fixed, what remains and what (if any) new problems it creates.

*Note: The Cydia servers are getting hammered right now. If you are having weird issues with installations, sources, packages, etc., give it a rest for an hour or two and come back later.

      I did my 5th jailbreak attempt tonight after an atrocious battery eating one from yesterday. This time it appears to be working ok. iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak is by far the buggiest…ever.

    iPad 2 (old version) upgraded today to 5.1.1 Computer: OS X 10.6.8

    restored. then completely wiped the unit in settings>general>erase all content and settings

    Absinthe 2.0.1 has been stuck at “Waiting for reboot – not done yet, don’t unplug your device” – it has been in this state for 1.5 hours. I went to the bank, came back, still in the same status

    Is this the result of the Cydia servers getting hammered right now, also?

      It’s very possible. The second time around it took me ~20 minutes to update Cydia initially and install a couple tweaks because of the servers.

      You need to manually reboot. Just hold the power button and power down like normal. Then restart and it’ll finish the jailbreak like normal…
