With absinthe being released and getting my jailbreak back with WWDC and iOS 6 around the corner I thought it would be cool to look at the features from Cydia that would make iOS 6 amazing! So let’s get started!
This is how quick reply was meant to be. It is amazing. Just tap the banner and it will show up just like that. Also a gesture brings up the quick reply. It works flawlessly. I would love to see this in the next iOS.
Barrel adds a variety of 3D page switching to your iPhone or iPad. I really like it! I would like to see some 3D page switching in the next iOS.
One of the best things I have seen for jailbreaking my iPhone is for expose multitasking. Let’s face it the style the iPhone has now is old and isn’t as glamorous as Android. This is a way to see all of the apps running with a little snap shot of what is happening in the application instead of just the boring sort of icon layout they have now. I want to see this make it but if I had to chose I would want the quick reply for messages.
The wait is finally over my friends. Today we finally have our A5 iPhone 4s/iPad 2 jailbreak and I am going to walk you through how to do it.
First here are the things you will need:
iPhone 4S/iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1
Absinthe UPDATE: Mac(New), Windows, Linux
So once you have all of that the rest of the process is very easy here is what you do
1. Open Absinthe and hit jailbreak.
Your device will go through all the steps it needs. Your iDevice will return to the lockscreen before the entire thing is done. Only unlock the device when Abisinthe tells you too.
2. From there you will need to enter the newly installed app and hit Jailbreak or Install cydia. If there is a database error don’t worry the servers are hammered I haven’t been able to get through yet either.
3. Done. You have your jailbroken iDevice with an A5 processor. I will update this post when I see the servers are working.
It seems you can jailbreak iOS 4.3.5/4.2.10 with redsn0w and here is how to do it!
First make sure you have iOS 4.3.5/4.2.10 installed and that you have 4.3.4/4.2.9 downloaded along with redsnow 9.8 B3 downloaded. Remember all download links will be down below! Please remember this is a tethered jailbreak meaning whenever you try and turn your phone on you will need to run redsn0w to make it show springboard.
Open redsn0w and hit browse and select the iOS 4.3.4 firmware and than hit next
Select Install Cydia and if you need to boot tethered unselect this option and select boot tethered and follow the instructions. Hit next and follow the online instructions and you are good an jailbroken!

It seems that jailbreak.me wasn’t the only jailbreak tool killed in 4.3.4/4.2.9 but the untethered jailbreak used from 4.1 was also closed. The 4.3.4 update was pushed really quickly to fix the security hole allowing a jailbreak on the device through a PDF vulnerability. Apple usually posts updates like that very quickly to make sure that their users aren’t at risk. This is a question of if this was patched to security concern or if this is another attempt to make jail breaking even harder so less people do it. Thanks To The Jailbreak Community for devoting time so we can have an easy jailbreak solution.
Apple has released iOS 4.3.4 patching the PDF security vulnerability which Jailbreak.me popular jailbreaking solution! So it is advised not to update if you are jailbroken and to store your blobs![UPDATE] It looks like 4.2.9 has been released for the Verizon iPhone as well. Not a big update but worth noting.
