iOS Hacker pod2g Turns App Developer, Releases Virtual Turntable for the iPad

Absinthe co-creator pod2g has announced his first iOS app called podDJ. The new app turns your iPad into a virtual turntable for mixing and scratching any music in your iTunes library. Pod2g promises this is the "most realistic virtual turntable" in the App store.

PodDJ features an easy to use UI, a sound output latency of just 5 milliseconds, transform buttons, BPM detection, turntable emulation, monitor output, and support for an external mixer. Pod2g claims podDJ is the fastest scratching application available.

Absinthe Jailbreak Updated With iPad 2,4 Support

The Chronic Dev Team has released Absinthe 2.0.4 with iPad 2,4 support. The new iPad 2 was originally not supported due to its unique 32nm A5 chip. The iPad 2,4 now joins the original iPad, original iPad 2 and iPad 3 on the list of supported devices.

The Chronic Dev Team's new untethered Absinthe tool also works with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1.1, and the iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation).

The new iPad, along with the original iPad and older iPad 2 models can now be jailbroken on iOS 5.1.1 using Absinthe 2.0. Support for the revised iPad 2 with the 32nm A5 chip (iPad2,4) is on the way, as the Chronic Dev Team continues work on the software.

In the meantime, the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak is great news for owners of compatible iPads, including the iPad 3 with Retina display. Using Absinthe is a simple process that requires just a few minutes, a USB dock connector, and a Windows, Mac OS X or Linux computer. As always, we recommend backing up your iPad with iTunes before jailbreaking.

iPad 3 Jailbreak Confirmed for Friday?

UPDATE: The iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak has arrived. For iPad jailbreak instructions, click here.

The official Hack In The Box Twitter page seems to have confirmed that pod2g and Chronic Dev Team will announce their new jailbreak at a special event on Friday in Amsterdam. Part one of the event is listed on the official HITB agenda to start at 11:30am on May 25th. Part 2 of the event will begin at 1:30pm after a "lunch break." That's is around 7am EST in the US.

iPad 3 Jailbreak

Pod2g made a few tweets about the iPad 2 and iPad 3 prior to HITB's announcement:

OK just added iPad3,3 support to Absinthe thanks to @flawlessfox. Only remains iPad2,4 now but we need the actual device.

Any people of #HITB2012AMS has an iPad2,4? Model number: either MC954 or MC989. Please check in Settings / General / About”

iPad 2 Jailbreak Instructions (iOS 5 / 5.01 Absinthe Untethered)

UPDATE: Instructions for using Absinthe for Windows are here.

iOS developer pod2g wasn't lying when he promised us an iPad 2 jailbreak was only a few days away. The Chronic Dev Team and a group of dream team iOS hackers have released the Absinthe jailbreak tool for Apple A5 devices running iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 firmware. This is the untethered iPad 2 jailbreak you have been waiting for since its release almost a year ago.

The long awaited hack is so popular that the greenpois0n servers crashed from the large amount of downloads on Friday. Hopefully most of the iPhone 4S owners have already jailbroken their devices, and things will start getting a lot smoother this weekend. The iPhone Dev-Team is also working on incorporating the A5 jailbreak procedures into redsn0w, and plan to release a command-line interface (CLI) for advanced users in the future. We'll keep you updated.
