The Untethered Jailbreak Fever started this previous with some amazing news coming from the iOS hackers. This previous week was really an important and impressive week for the people waiting for the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 and iOS hackers making the dream come true of all those people waiting for the Untethered Jailbreak. In the start of this week, we informed you about the latest tidbits and the latest updates from @MuscleNerd and @Pod2g, these are the Two hackers with the rest of the team working on the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak. They updated their respective blog this past Sunday with some important information regarding the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 with its compatibility and who can update to iOS 5.1.1. If you have missed it you can check it out from here.
Another great news that we heard from the French iOS Hacker, @pod2g was that the Untethered Jailbreak is ready and they will be releasing the Untethered Jailbreak within this week. The tools were said to be Absinthe2.0 and Redsn0w to support iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak. The video of Asbinthe2.0 in action also surfaced the web.
After the video of Asbinthev2.0 surfaced the web, it made one thing clear that the release in few days. Ironically, the Chronic-Dev Team with Dev-Team member, @MuscleNerd are going to HITB (Hack in the Box) conference held in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The team of iOS hacker’s have got keynote’s scheduled for the conference at HITB that strongly point out towards the release of the Untethered Jailbreak during their conference at HITB, Amsterdam.
Now what is this HITB of which we are taking name from beginning. Lets have some little knowledge about it.
Having started as a small gathering of Malaysian security specialists in 2002, the event has since expanded out of its home base in Kuala Lumpur to Dubai and in 2010, The Netherlands. Our events are put together by a team of dedicated crew and volunteers and through the continued support of our sponsors; HITBSecConf has grown into the largest network security conference in the Asia Pacific and Middle East region!
The main aim of our conferences has always been to enable the dissemination, discussion and sharing of deep knowledge network security information. Our main focus is on new and groundbreaking attack and defense methods that have not been seen or discussed in public before. HITBSecConf events bring together a unique mix of security professionals, researchers, law enforcement and members of the hacker underground under one roof and our flagship event in Malaysia sees over 1000 attendees.
After having some knowledge about HITB, lets move back to our topic.
According to the HITB schedule of the conference for Friday, 25th May 2012, The Chronic Dev-Team members, Joshua Hill (@P0sixninja), Cyril (@Pod2g), and Nikias Bassen (@Pimskeks) are lined up for a keynote session on the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 using Corona.

After the break, the legend of the Jailbreak community, David Wang (@planetbeing) will join The Chronic-Dev Team to talk about the Absinthe Jailbreak that they released for iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Here cultofmac notes that they will be revealing about the making of Absinthe and implementation of it.
The moment in which they will be announcing the Untethered Jailbreak via Absinthe2.0 seems to be the phase in which they will be telling about the Absinthe Tool.
Absinthe2.0 is expected to Jailbreak Untethered all the iDevices except, Apple TV 3.
Don’t forget that @MuscleNerd will be taking the stage before The Chronic-Dev-Team on 24th May, Thursday. He would be talking about the Evolution of iPhone Baseband and Unlocks. We might see something interesting over there also.
