Quasar lets you Run Multiple Apps In Separate Windows Simultaneously On iPad

The Quasar Cydia tweak for iPad allows the user to open, position and resize multiple windows. Literally any app can be opened up and used in a floating window, or made fullscreen at the touch of a button. There are options to rotate the windows in case you want to change their orientation and you can configure the options for this tweak from the Settings menu.

Quaser is only available for jailbroken iPads running iOS 5 or higher and can be downloaded from the BigBoss repo on Cydia.

iPad 2 downgraded from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1

iH8sn0w the developer of Sn0wbreeze has uncovered a loophole in Apple's apticket system allowing him to downgrade his iPad 2 from 5.1 down to 5.0.1 and he said it works on all A5 devices.

I would expect you need the SHSH blobs from iOS 5.0.1 so be sure to save them if you can.

At present there is no word on a public release or ETA.

Absinthe A5 Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2

The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 has been released after months of hard work by pod2g and the rest of the jailbreak community.

p0sixninja said "Windows version of Absinthe is coming as soon as Nikias gets home and rolls up the build"

The iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is compatible with the following:

iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1
iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1
As previously noted, there will be three jailbreak tools released that are all capable of jailbreaking the iPhone 4S and iPad
2. They are as follows:


A traditional graphical user interface jailbreak tool. Read More.

Dev Team CLI
A command line inteface that’s great for troubleshooting. 


The Dev Team’s traditional graphical user inteferface used for jailbreaking. This will be released sometime later after the CLI.

A huge thanks is owed to pod2g, p0sixninja, MuscleNerd, planetbeing, Saurik, and no-doubt countless others.

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untether to be released real soon

Looks like we will see an untethered jailbreak for the 4S and iPad2 within hours according to pod2g who updated his blog earlier today.

Here is what he said:

Hello dear readers,

I know the wait was long, too much long, but it's about to end! You'd be able to free your iPhone in some hours.

A tool named Absinthe and developped by the Chronic Dev Team will install the untether on your device. Also the iPhone Dev Team will release a CLI (command line) tool to help diagnose issues and repair things if it goes wrong.

This is a little scary I know, but the chance you break something is really small, since we made lots of tests to verify the process on different devices. But it is the first time we use the backup / restore functions of iTunes to install software, and there are maybe things we are not aware of.

As you already know, different security researchers put a lot of energy to work out the different issues we had to install the untether on new devices.

Thus, a unified PayPal account was opened so that everyone who worked on the A5 exploits will receive a fair split of your contributions. Here is the link : contribute
As usual, contributions are not needed but are appreciated by developpers. By the way, thank you very much again for everyone who already participated. This is real nice.

Here is the complete list of Absinthe supported devices :

  • iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
  • iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak update

Pod2g has shared some more information on the hopefully soon to be released iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak in a blog post.

Here is what he had to say in his blog

How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven't released tools to achieve this at home?

The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can't be released publicly.

It's the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn't distribute it.

So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.

Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release?

Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!

Why don't you do a tethered jailbreak then?

A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven't found yet!

pod2g, release this stuff quick, [your insult here], I've waited enough now.

If I could, I would!
