As it has been mentioned on twitter by @pod2g, Absinthe 2.0 will be released in the next 72 hours to the masses. Also it is rumored that as usual that the popular jailbreaking tool will be released to Mac users first then Windows users. But I’m sure that Windows users wont have to wait more than a day. Since the jailbreak tool is soon to be released I thought I’d give you some tips before updating and losing your jailbreaking!
As always sync and back up!
Make a list of installed tweaks and repo sources you’d like to re-install after jailbreaking. You can either do this manually or automatically by using various .deb back up tools found in cydia.
Copy any photos or videos that may be in your camera roll to your hard drive in case for some reason that didnt get copied with photo stream.
As always remember that some tweaks and apps may not be compatible with the newer firmware as the developer may not have had access to a jailbroken idevice on said newer firmware. If the cydia packages say “requires 5.x+” you should be ok to at least install it even though it may not be compatible with say 5.1.1! Keep it installed so that cydia can notify you when the package has been updated! As soon as the tool is released for both Windows and Mac i will post links and a “how-to” for those new to jailbreaking.
