One million! That is the number of iPhone 4S and iPad 2’s that got jailbroken on the first day of the release of Absinthe. The first jailbreaking tool to jailbreak iPhone 4S and the second one to jailbreak iPad 2.
Absinthe which was released a couple of days ago become the most popular jailbreaking tool ever, with a staggering 1 million iPhone 4S and iPad 2’s jailbroken, and guess what? These numbers only account for the Mac downloads, not the Windows version one which got released later.
Absinthe jailbreaking tool for A5 devices was created by the “Dream Team” which included famous hackers such as @planetbeing, @musclenerd, @pod2g and the Chronic plus the iPhone Dev team members.
Absinthe jailbreak was so popular that greenposion severs were down for most of the time due to the huge traffic that resulted from downloading the jailbreak tool.
This “one million downloads” proves that demand for jailbreaking iOS devices keeps growing over the years as Apple keeps rolling out new software updates for their very popular devices.
