As most of you know, the Chronic Dev Team released a new jailbreak tool known as GreenPois0n Absinthe to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running on iOS 5.0.1. However, the tool is available for Mac OS X users only. That’s why the iPhone Dev Team released a new tool called CLI (Command Link) for both Windows and Mac OS X to allow both Windows and Mac OS X users to do their jailbreak.
The newly released Apple’s handset, the iPhone 4S, can be jailbroken on both iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 firmware untethered. On the other hand, the iPad 2 can only be untethered jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1.
Before you start, make sure that you have updated your device and created a backup so that you can restore your apps, photos, media, contacts and everything. Also unlock your device by typing the passcode if necessary.
STEP 1: Download CLI Absinthe for Windows and Mac OS X from here.
STEP 2: Unzip the folder named cinject_0.4.3 into the system folder, i.e. C:\.
STEP 3: Now go to the start menu, click on run and type in cmd.exe.
STEP 4: In the command window, type: CD C:\cinject_0.4.3 as shown to get into the required folder.
STEP 5: You’ll now need to execute CLI. Do this by typing: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig.
STEP 6: Now execute cinject.exe -j payloads and wait for the backup.
STEP 7: Finally execute the command cinject.exe -w.
STEP 8: Get in your device and tap on Absinthe icon to get your jailbreak done in few minutes.
