The iPhone Dev-Team has brought a good news for Windows users, by releasing a CLI tool update - CLI 0.4.3 that helps Windows users jailbreak their iPhone 4S or iPad 2 with Absinthe and making the -j jailbreak option much more functional.

The hacker MuscleNerd tweeted, See update 3 http://is.gd/boaaBU for CLI 0.4.3 (including Win version). Fully functional A5 JB for Win+OSX CLI tinkerers :)

In many cases, the Win/OSX CLI can jailbreak it too (see the -j option). But yes, its purpose is for overall debug, MuscleNerd added.

According to Tech&Trend's research, many users were stumpeed at step -j payloads. Users said it works until creating a backup, then users will receive the following message:

recv : bad file descriptor FATAL<__LINE__>: Assertion failed <1266>: got == sizeof 1266

One experienced user provided this solution: Made a backup, restored to stock 5.0.1, setup as a new iphone, jailbreak worked.

Following is the step-by-step tutorial for Windows users:

1. Download CLI 0.4.3 or later version, then extract it to the root of your hard drive.

2. Connect your device - iPhone 4S or iPad 2 - to your Windows computer.

3.Go to Start menu, search cmd, select as administrator
