Chronic Dev Team scores iOS hacking hit

The Chronic-Dev Team has announced that around 1.1 million users have already jailbroken their iOS device using the latest version of the Greenpois0n Absinthe 2.0 hack. The number of users choosing to install the hack is considerable, given that it was launched for iOS 5.1.1 just last Friday with 211,401 new iPad users among them. The remaining users include a mix of devices running Apple’s A4 and A5 processors, with the only device yet to receive the exploit being the latest iPad 2 using the 32nm version of the A5 chip.
