Absinthe jailbreak update fixes reboot, icon display issues

updated 09:40 am EST, Mon January 23, 2012

OS X, Windows releases updated

The makers of the Absinthe jailbreak for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S have released a minor update, v0.2. The code does, however, fix two important glitches, including one in which devices would fail to reboot properly after the exploit was pushed. The other involved icons appearing white on devices' homescreens.

Both the Mac and Windows versions of the software have been updated. Absinthe is the first jailbreaking tool to support devices based on Apple's A5 processor. Until recently, changes made by Apple prevented hackers from using the same exploits employed on A4 hardware or still earlier platforms.

    Be careful!!

    Both my iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are now asking for my Apple ID password at random times when they never have before, and only after jailbreaking. There's nothing to stop this jailbreak actually stealing your info.
