How to Jailbreak iPad iOS 5.1.1 with Absinthe 2.0

*** Your device must be running iOS 5.1.1 in order to use Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak.


Download Absinthe 2.0 for Windows/Mac/Linux
Download iOS 5.1.1 for your iPad

Step 1

Before starting the iPad 3/2/1 jailbreak process with Absinthe 2.0, it is recommended to backup your personal stuff first. Make sure to backup your iPad data via iTunes. To do that, connect your iPad to your computer and open iTunes. Right-click on your device in iTunes and click Backup.

Step 2

Remove Passcodes or VPN settings (If previously set).

Now go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
This step will make the jailbreak process speedy and trouble-free.

Step 3

Execute the Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak and connect your iPad 3, iPad 2 or iPad to your computer via USB cable;
As soon as Absinthe detects the connected device, hit the jailbreak button.

Step 4

Absinthe will perform various processes on your iPad such as: beginning jailbreak, sending initial jailbreak data, sending final jailbreak data, waiting for reboot, and waiting for process to complete. The whole process is automated.

During the process your iPad 3 may appear to be restoring from backup, just like we saw in previous version of Absinthe jailbreak.

Absinthe will notify you as soon as the jailbreak process is completed. Now you can find the sweet Cydia icon resting on your New iPad 3 Springboard.
