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.

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.
