Absinthe 2 lifts iOS 5.1.1 gadgets over garden wall

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak

Remote control for virtualized desktops

iDevice jailbreakers: you can now take almost all of Apple's iOS 5.1.1 gadgets out of the walled garden, thanks to hacking tool Absinthe 2.0, released today.

The jailbreak software, which only works with iOS 5.1.1 - past versions of the mobile operating system have working jailbreaks already - and will open any iPhone, the latest and last generation of the iPod Touch, and all iPads but the sneaked-out 32nm CPU-equipped iPad 2. The Apple TV can't use it, either.

Absinthe 2.0

Support for this 'iPad2,4' will come "at a later date", the app's coders promised. But the Apple TV will not be supported, it seems.

The utility is an untethered jailbreak: re-booting the iDevice at a later date doesn't require the gadget to be first wired up to iTunes.

Absinthe 2.0 is available for Mac, Windows and Linux, and you can download it here. ®
