iPhone 4s/iPad 2 Jailbreak Guide for iOS 5.0.1/5.0 using GreenPois0n Absinthe


In case you are still on the fence (or a little confused) about the new iPhone 4s/iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1/5.0 on A5 devices this post is for you. I have been running the jailbreak on my iPhone 4s since the day it has been released and I must say it is very stable and that I am very happy with it. The only issue I had the first time on attempting the jailbreak was that I was stuck at “beginning jailbreak, this may take a while” (first step) for 45 minutes. I will address this problem and a few others later in the post, but first lets get to the untethered iOS 5.0.1/5.0 jailbreak for the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 guide!

iPad: Backgrounder App Updated to r432-1!


In my article yesterday I wrote about how Backgrounder was one of my favorite applications for my jailbroken iPad.  While for the most part it was compatible with the iPad there were still a few bugs.  I noticed that when I opened up certain applications that were set to only run in landscape mode that Backgrounder would “forget” to keep previous enabled programs running in the background.
