Recently, iOS 5.1.1 users rejoiced when the Dream Team released Absinthe 2.0, finally bringing out an untethered iOS jailbreak solution that worked with iOS 5.1.1. Beyond the untethered abilities of the jailbreak, another huge feature was that it minimized steps allowing basically a near-one-click solution to unlocking the supported Apple device of your choice. It almost seemed too good to be a true, and in a way it was.

While many users were able to use the new program without any real issues, it wasn’t smooth sailing for all users, with many reporting issues of a timeout mechanism that occurred at random and made the jailbreak unusable. The good news is that the Dream Team went to work almost immediately and cranked out 2.0.1 to fix some of these problems.

The even better news is they aren’t done improving Absinthe 2.x, as 2.0.2 has now arrived and brings with it much less chance of error and the addition of iPhone 4 GSM model support, making it pretty much work with every device under the sun, except for the revised 32nm iPad 2, that is.

While the program isn’t yet 100% perfect, it is pretty close, and you won’t find a better option if you want to avoid difficult workarounds like tethering. You can pretty much bet that more revisions to Absinthe 2.x are in the near future, but as far as stability goes, at this point you are more than safe to download Absinthe 2.0.2 and get your device jailbroken, or update your earlier Absinthe 2.x installation, if you haven’t yet.

You can download and get installation instructions from Absinthe’s site, they are the same installation instructions from 2.0, but the download links have been changed to reflect the latest version.

Update: Absinthe 2.0.4 has now arrived, and with it comes full support of the revised 32nm iPad 2, as well.
