    It has been confirmed that pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team will be releasing Absinthe 2.0 during the HitBSecConf which is being held in Amsterdam tomorrow.

    This untethered jailbreak will work with most iOS devices, but it will not work with the Apple TV 3.

    I restored my 4S to 5.1.1 yesterday so I'll be ready to go when this jailbreak is released tomorrow. :)

    Yeah, I was jailbroken on 5.0.1. I wanted to restore to factory settings this time.

    Just keeping your device "fresh"?
    I was considering doing the same, as I have my iPhone fairly tweaked out.
    I've never had this level of customization, but have had just a few minor crashes over the past few months. Not even sure those could be attributed to the jailbreak.
    My biggest concern is the tweaking I've done in iFile. You know what a hard time I had getting my custom "slide to unlock" sound to stick....
    I've never done a restore and rejailbreak with iFile data. Does that save separately or carry over with PKGBackup?

    Yes. iTunes/iClould backups up jailbreak app settings and PkgBack backs up the apps themselves. I just use DiskAid to save my themes to my desktop before I restore or update and then drag them back in after I rejailbreak. I like to have them backed up on the computer anyway.

    You can use iFile to back them up if you don't have DiskAid.

    PkgBackup has a Dropbox api, you can easily save all of your Cydia apps/tweaks and repo's through Dropbox. :)

    Yep, use Dropbox for my PKGBackups.
    Used to save them via address book, but once lost all that data with a restore and was SOL....

    I've been running stock 5.1.1 for few weeks now because some apps I use a lot have not been function properly. Seemed to be a memory issue. Hopefully it has been address by the time I JB again.

    Will it save his custom slide to unlock tone and themes, though?

    Dropbox saves everything you get from Cydia.

    Will it save a custom unlock tone that he made himself and used SSH, iFile or DiskAid to add into the file system? I was suggesting saving it with DiskAid or iFile because I'm not certain that PkgBack will save it.
    If PkgBackup doesn't save the custom tone, I think it will be in the iTunes/iCloud backup, but I still recommend backing it up on your computer because you may not always want to or be able to use your backup at some point in the future. They don't work when you downgrade anymore, sometimes they get corrupted and sometimes you just need to restore to factory settings. It only takes a minute to save it to the computer and then it's safe and you don't have to rely on the iTunes/PkgBackup backups.

    I have no way of checking at this point. I've added custom things through iFile. My guess is that PkgBackup will only save what you install/download through Cydia. That's how i've used it.

    I'm just going to trust the tech people and that the un-tethered Jailbreak will be released tomorrow. :)

    Mods added via SSH won't be saved as they aren't governed by Cydia, unless they were added by the AutoInstall folder.

    Everything downloaded via Cydia, including repo's will be saved. Custom UIAudio sounds are something totally different. If you use custom tones (and you're careful like me) you should keep a folder with both the new and old tones.

    I know I'm quoting myself... another feature of this Dropbox saving method is that you can share your backups.

    Okay. So it's a good idea to save it with iFile or DiskAid like I originally said. ;) That's how I've always done it as well.
