The Chronic Dev Team just rolled out their Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak earlier this morning, and we did talk about it already, so you might want to check it out for further details. Basically, this version of the Absinthe jailbreak targets all iOS-powered devices that run on iOS 5.1.1. It is also super popular because this is the first jailbreak that is made available for the recently released “new iPad”, or the “iPad 3” as it was known before a formal introduction. Needless to say, this particularly unique position of Absinthe 2.0 has made it the most successful release from the Chronic Dev Team to date.
In fact, it is so popular that servers are getting pinged left, right and center, giving people a hard time in jailbreaking their devices. Not only that, Cydia does not seem to fare any better, buckling under all the unexpected traffic as well. For those who are unable to immediately download jailbreak tweaks and apps, you might want to be patient and wait it out. A few more days will not kill you, will it? So far, we have heard word from the ground that iPad jailbreaks require anywhere from an hour to 80 minutes to complete, while majority of the iPhones take just seconds to jailbreak.
