Dev team had also released the Redsn0w Command Line Interface (CLI) tool, which includes support for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak yesterday after pod 2G and the Chronic Dev team released the Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak.
The CLI tool makes use of pod2g’s Rocky Racoon iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak used in Absinthe 2.0.x jailbreak.
The CLI tool is an alternative to the Absinthe 2.0 for the technically inclined and should help in troubleshooting issues. It also offers Tinkerers with advanced options to play around with the jailbreak.
MuscleNerd – member of the iPhone Dev team tweeted:
CLI version of “rocky-racoon” JB from pod2g http://is.gd/TAVZ8a . Win/Mac “cinject -Y payloads_rocky” (best on fresh 5.1.1)
We would recommend you to use the GUI based Absinthe 2.0.x jailbreak tool and use the CLI tool if you hit any problems.
MuscleNerd has recommended using CLI tool on “fresh iOS 5.1.1”. The CLI tool supports the following iOS devices running on iOS 5.1.1:
- iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S
- iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3 (except for the $399 iPad 2 with the tweaked A5 chip as pod2g hasn’t been able to get hold of it to test and confirm it)
- iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
If you depend on Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone, then you should use Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 that was released by iH8sn0w few hours back or wait for iPhone Dev team to release Redsn0w that adds support for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, which allows you to update to iOS 5.1.1 while preserving your iPhone’s baseband.
So if you’ve a tethered jailbroken iOS device on iOS 5.1.1 then you can use the Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether to convert the tethered jailbreak to an untethered jailbreak.
