It’s only been about a week or so since Absinthe 2.0 first came out allowing iOS 5.1.1 users to jailbreak their devices without the need for tethering. So early into its initial release and we are now already up to version 2.0.4, which might leave you wondering why so many revisions so short after it’s release? Honestly, it is pretty much expected when it comes to something as difficult to do as create an untethered jailbreak solution
Good news! If you happen to be using the latest version of RedSn0w, you can safely update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 5.1.1 without losing your jailbreak status. This has apparently been confirmed by Redmond Pie, as well as another iOS developer.
