What is Untethered Jailbreak ?
If the Jailbreak is untethered, you don’t have to jailbreak again at the time of reboot. Untethered Jailbreak will keep your iPhone in Jailbreak state until the device is updated to next firmware release.
The new iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak tool will be named as “Absinthe 2.0”. Here is the confirmation from @xvolks
I’ve tested Absinthe v2 on my iPhone 4 GSM, iOS 5.1.1. It jailbroke it flawlessly.I’ve took a (bad) video of it 😉
