As we told you earlier that iPhone Dev Team has updated their command line tool cInject to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on Windows operating system. We are now here to show you a how to guide to write few lines of commands and jailbreak your A5 based devices.
If you really need it that quick, you can use the command line tool else you can wait for Absinthe to get updated for Windows OS. For now follow our step by step guide below.
NOTE: Before you start jailbreaking your device, it is recommended to take a backup just to be on the safe side. Also remove any passcode lock on your device. It is recommended to login from your administrator account. Also make sure your device is connected to your computer.
STEP 1: Download cInject for Windows. Its a ZIP file. Extract it on the Desktop. Copy the extracted content and place it on the desktop. Connect your iPhone 4S / iPad 2 with your computer.
STEP 2: Now you have to run command prompt. Type cmd in the search programs box and right click cmd and open it as administrator as you can see in the sceenshot.
STEP 3: Now navigate to the directory where you have downloaded cInject tool which in our case is placed on the desktop. You can navigate to the directory by using the CD command. If you have placed it somewhere else, you can still use the same command to go to your specific path. In our case the command to reach it is: “cd /Desktop/cinject.0.4.3“.
STEP 4: Now you have to write the following command and press enter “cinject -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig“. Now you will see on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 a screen asking you to install. Tap on the install and then next accept the profile.
STEP 5: Next you need to run the command cinject -j payloads that will simply jailbreak.
STEP 6: Next command you need to type is cinject -w.
STEP 7: Now on iOS device, go to Settings app and then go to Network > VPN and enable it. After that you will get a configuration error which is no big deal just press ok and proceed.
STEP 8: After that your device will reboot and you will see a lot of things going on in the command prompt. Don’t get panic. Its normal.
STEP 9: After reboot, you will see Cydia on your device. Few of the users have seen Absinthe icon first and tapping on it completed the process.
UPDATE: Absinthe For Windows has been released. So its better not to use above method as its a little complicated. Download Absinthe for Windows instead to perform one click jailbreak.
