As per new reports, the Dream Team (Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team) has released a new version of the A5 jailbreak tool, Absinthe 0.4, which adds support to the older version of the Mac OS.
The tool serves the users who were having a problem on jailbreaking their phones on a Leopard Mac, making jailbreak accessible to them as well. The tool is also supported on the PowerPC hardware, so that the user is not compelled to use an Intel Mac to perform the jailbreak.
The update also adds reliability check on startup to make sure that all the required files are in place. Moreover, for Windows users, it fixes a bug in the payload generator that could cause the system to crash.
Pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team, who has a major role in the creation of Absinthe, had already warned in January that the user should not update to iOS 5.0.2 when it’s released, or the user will lose the jailbreak.
Now with Absinthe 0.4, the iPhone 4S devices running iOS 5.0 can be jailbroken. The same can also be done on the 4S version of 5.0.1, and all iPad models running iOS 5.0.1.
However, it is still unclear as to when or if Apple will release this particular software update, but it is safe to presume the company will patch all known weak spots. This includes the current jailbreak exploits.
Nonetheless, it is to be remembered that the tool’s change log says that Absinthe 0.4 adds support for OS X 10.5, which is the original version of Leopard. Be assured that all future versions (up to 10.5.8) will be supported as well.
