UPDATE: Before I get started with this tutorial, I want to add that this is also possible for any iPhone 4 or 4S running on IOS 7 and IOS 7.1 - But we’ll use Pangu to accomplish this, instead of Absinthe.

In this example however I will be using my iPad as it was easier to use, but keep in mind it will work with all models (iPhone,iPad,Apple TV & iPods):

So we finally have the long awaited jailbreak for A5 processor devices. One can recall that there was still nothing for the 4G devices, our friends at Apple had made it difficult. If you want to know a little more about the history, we advise you to take a look at this.


You must follow exactly the same steps. Let us start with the tutorial.


Have any working device running on 5.0 or 5.0.1

Before you start, make sure that you download Absinthe’s iPad 2 Jailbreak (will also work for other models)


To check what version of iOS we have just installed on our device go to Settings /General/Information and find the installed version.
Information on iOSUna iPad version after verification that meet all the requirements we start the process.

Absinthe unloaded (linked above). Open Absinthe, right click /Run as administrator. A screen like the image appears inside Absinthe Windows v0.2


Click the button and the process should be able to start, it may take a few minutes for Absinthe to start on Windowsv0.2
The process will take place in our devices and after a few minutes, the device Windows v0.2 begins.

In the device, you will find a new “app” called Absinthe just click it. Once inside proceed to install Cydia. With Cydia installed on iPad 2with Absinthe finally the device will reboot and you will have on the jailbreak and can find the Cydia application on our iDevice.


As you can see, it is a very quick and easy process with which to enjoy and do this for 5.0.1. Please remember that if you want to keep it on your device there is no need to update it.

If you want, you can leave any questions or suggestions in the comments and will be happy to resolve it. If you liked this post, share it with your friends so that they can perform it.
