Jailbreak the New iPad (iOS5.1.1) in 10 minutes

I followed steps on iphonehacks jailbreak my new iPad. It is pretty easy and safe. The same steps can also jailbreak iPad2 (including iPad2,4)and iPad1 which runs on iOS 5.1.1.

Before you start jailbreak, you need to do the following to your iPad.
1. Make sure you upgrade the iOS of your iPad to 5.1.1

2. If you have Passcode turned on, disable it.

Here is the detail steps:
1. Download Absinthe Jaibreak tool Windows version or Mac version.
2. Unzip the download file to any folder. This folder contains the following file.
3. Execute the absinthe-win-2.0.4.exe. It will extract to a new folder absinthe-win-2.0.4.
4. Right click on absinthe.exe and select Run as administrator.
5. The Absinthe tool windows is displayed. Plugin in your iPad to the computer and the tool will show the iPad is detected. Click on "Jailbreak" button.

6. It will take about 5 to -10 minutes. You don't need to do anything. Just wait. Your iPad will automatically restart.
7. Once it is done, you should see the following message "Done, enjoy".  That's it! You iPad is jailbreak.

Note: If you did not see the "Done, enjoy" message, this means the jailbreak fails. Don't panic, it happens to me first time. Just re-plugin your iPad and do the above steps again. It works for me second time.
