Download Absinthe for Windows from this link(http://cache.greenpois0n.com/dl/absinthe-win-0.4.zip) and save the application in a folder named "Absinthe" on your desktop.
Double click the Absinthe zip file and extract the application to the Absinthe folder. Navigate back to the Absinthe folder and launch the Absinthe application.
Please launch the application as an Administrator. Right Click on the Absinthe exe and select the "Run as Administrator" option.
After launching Absinthe, you will be prompted to connect your iPad 2.
Absinthe should detect your iPad and also mention the iOS firmware that is running on it. Click on the Jailbreakbutton.
After clicking on the Jailbreak button the tool will give a progress update on the various stages of the jailbreak process such as:
"Beginning jailbreak" (note this can really take sometime - in our case this step took more than 10 minutes on our iPad 2, though it was lot quicker on iPhone 4S)
"Sending initial data" at this time you will notice that "Restoring in Progress" message on your iPad 2 (this can also take a long time - in our case this step took more than 15 mins)
"Waiting for reboot"
"Waiting for device to finish rebooting" as your iPad 2 is rebooting.
"Preparing jailbreak data"
"Sending payload data" (this can also take a long time - in our case this step took more than 15 mins)
In the end you'll be prompted with the message informing you that the jailbreak is "Almost done - just unlock the screen if necessary, then tap "Jailbreak" icon to finish.
Unlock your iPad. The icon you should look for is the Absinthe icon and not "Jailbreak", it may not be on the first home screen page so you're better off just searching for it using Spotlight.
Launch the Absinthe app. It should load the greenpois0n site and reboot your iPad. After it is rebooted, you should see the Cydia icon.
That's it, your iPad 2 is successfully jailbroken.
