Using a headline worthy of Apple’s press room, should the Cupertino giant condone such things, the Chronic Dev Team has confirmed on Twitter that their Absinthe 2.0 tool has been downloaded and used to jailbreak no less than 1,2 million iDevices running the latest iOS.
“Some stats since release of #Absinthe - 211,401 jailbroken iPad3's and 973,086 devices newly jailbroken!”, reads the message
(sans other Twitter hashtags and smileys).
The numbers are impressive, to say the least. Analysts can deduct quite a few things from this, such as the popularity of certain solutions that are only available as jailbreak tweaks, or how many people jailbreak to avoid downloading software from Apple’s App Store.
In fact, let’s use the comments section as a poll. How anxious have you been for the arrival of Absinthe 2.0, and what has been your main reason to jailbreak?
