BigBoss has issued a warning that the Absinthe 2.0.1 jailbreak doesn’t work on GSM iPhone 4 with build 9B208 installed, which was pushed yesterday by Apple. There is only a small compatibility issue with the build in question and a different payload is required for it to work correctly with Absinthe. The issue will soon be sorted out by The Chronic Dev Team in the form of Absinthe 2.0.2 download.
Those who are already running build 9B206 on their iPhone 4 can safely use one-click jailbreak solution Absinthe 2.0.1, developed by the Chronic Dev Team. The tutorial guides to jailbreak 5.1.1 iPhone 4 build 9B208 would remain exactly the same.
Today Apple released 5.1.1b for iPhone 4 GSM devices. If you manage to install this firmware you won’t be able to have an untethered jailbreak until a new version of the Absinthe 2.0 payload for this firmware can be produced. This will probably be sorted out in a few hours but you should all be aware in case you have an iphone 4 GSM (AT&T, for example) and have an issue. Apple did not patch the jailbreak and probably released this without being aware of the jailbreak. But a slightly different payload is required for it to work correctly with Absinthe v2.
