For those of you on Windows that have been waiting for over a day to jailbreak, we have some exciting news. Absinthe, the brand new jailbreak tool for iPhone 4S and iPad 2, has finally been released for Windows. Originally released just many Windows users were left anxious as to when their version would be released.
The process is exactly the same as it is on the Mac, and you can follow the tutorial here. Make sure you have all the prerequisites before you proceed.
Windows users also have the option of using the CLI, or Command Line Interface, to jailbreak their device, which strips Absinthe of its GUI and just gives you the bare minimum. However, now that the GUI is out, we highly recommend using it. You can find the new version of Absinthe at our downloads page, and once again, follow the tutorial to jailbreak here.

NOTE: This will not work for the iPhone 4S or iPad 2, although those jailbreaks should be coming soon. Also, this will not work on iOS 5.0, so update to 5.0.1 before you try it.
Option 1: Already Jailbroken Tethered
If you already have a tethered jailbreak, just reload your data in Cydia and search for the package “Corona”. Install it and you jailbreak should now be untethered.
Option 2: Not Jailbroken
This will probably be the case for most people, and means that you have not had any jailbreak applied to your device. If this is so, jsut follow the directions below to jailbreak your device untethered.
Step 1: Download the latest version of Redsn0w (0.9.10 beta 1) from here. (for mac os x and windows)
(there's a new update redsnow 0.9.10 beta 2) you can get it from the above link. it basically
repairs glitch in the cydia. i recommend using beta 2.
Step 2: Open Redsn0w. You should see this screen:
Step 3: Select “Jailbreak”. You should now be at this screen:
Step 4: Plug your device into the computer and turn it off. Then click “Next >”.
Step 5: Follow the on screen directions to put your device into DFU mode. Your screen should look like this:
Step 6: Let Redsn0w complete the process, and you should be done! Leave a comment telling us how it worked for you, and subscribe to our newsletter below to be notified if and when the jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is released.

Just minutes ago, jailbreak tweak developer Chpwn released Spire, the first fully legal and functional Siri port to Cydia. He worked with Ryan Petrich and Steven Troughton-Smith. This is the moment that many people have been waiting for since the release of the iPhone 4S, and up until now there have been very few apps that came close. Even of the ones that did, copyright issues and bandwidth problems led to the early downfall of almost every one. Chpwn tweeted the link to his blog post here which explains all the info one might need to know about the tweak.
The biggest problem with this tweak is that it still requires authorization from an iPhone 4S, so it adds the ability to specify your own proxy server. Chpwn suggests using this SiriProxy fork to set up a server that you can connect Spire to.
Chpwn also warns that the download is about 100 MB, so you should probably connect to WiFi before starting the download. To find the package, just search “Spire” in Cydia.
This tweak isn’t perfect, but it avoids many of the problems that previous Siri ports had, as well as being fully functional as compared to them. Be sure to subscribe to the newsletter below to be notified if there are any major updates to this tweak.
