All those who are waiting for a treat ends now, The dev teams have pushed the Absinthe version 2.0 to the public download, means you can now jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered. Yes, you read the right word, I am talking about downloading Absinthe 2.0, the latest version of the Chronic Dev Team tool that brought an untethered jailbreak to the majority of our iOS 5.1.1 running devices.
Last month I had upgraded my iOS device to the latest version of 5.1.1 firmware and performed a tether jailbreak using Redsn0w, but not happy with it. Today, the resaerchers such as Pod2g have always managed to escape the securities put in place by Apple to bring a jailbreak to the masses.
