The iPhone Dev-Team have released the command line interface (CLI) version of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak to the public. This new CLI Jailbreak Tool will allow users to go through the Jailbreaking process from start to end by typing in commands through Terminal. The reason someone would want to go to the trouble of using CLI over the GUI (graphical user interface) counterpart Absinthe. Is because the CLI tool will allow you to debug your Jailbreak to help find out why you are having errors Jailbreaking your A5 iOS device.
If you are interested in downloading the CLI tool to debug your A5 iOS device Jailbreak or simply want to take advantage of some of the advanced options CLI offers. You can download the CLI tool and the ReadMe for the CLI tool from the iJailbreak Downloads Section.
At this time CLI is only offered for the Mac OS X operating system. We will keep you updated on the progress of the Windows version of CLI.
Update #1: Download CLI Windows Untethered Jailbreak
Yesterday we told you that the iPhone Dev-Team released a command line interface (CLI) version of their iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak. As of the time of writing that article yesterday, CLI was only available for Mac OS X users. Now, however, hacker MuscleNerd has mentioned that CLI is available for Windows users that will allow them to Jailbreak their iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered running the iOS 5.0 (iPhone 4S only) or iOS 5.0.1 firmware by typing in commands through terminal (CMD).
Generally Jailbreak solutions are released with a GUI (graphical user interface), but as the A5 Untethered Jailbreak proved to be one of the most complicated Jailbreaks ever developed, it looks like Windows users will be stuck using the command line version of the tool until Absinthe is properly updated.
If you would like to download CLI for Windows please visit the iJailbreak Downloads Section. We will have a how to guide available for using CLI for Windows to Jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 Untethered.
