The Absinthe jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 was released a few minutes ago. Of course, we were right on it and we already posted a tutorial on how to jailbreak the iPhone 4S or iPad 2 using Absinthe.

While I haven’t had any problem running the jailbreak – well, I had it a few minutes before everybody else – it appears that some users are having a problem when launching the Absinthe app installed on their device, which returns an “error establishing a database connection“.

We have a fix for that…

iOS hacker PlanetBeing who helped develop the jailbreak tweeted a simple fix for the “error establishing a database connection”. Apparently, all you need to do is go to Settings > Network > VPN > ON.

The VPN connection will most likely give an error and your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 should reboot shortly after. Once it’s rebooted, try launching the Absinthe webclip again.

Let us know if that works for you.

  • When I click on the Absinthe, it comes up a text with black backgorund that says “Wait for absinthe to comblete..” and after few seconds, below the text it comes up a text saying “Didn’t work? Try this: 1. Tap Jailbreak to open the Settings application and turn on the VPN named Jailbraik”. But when I tap “jailbreak” it comes something that says “cant open Absinthe. The wrong was: the URL cant be shown”. And when I try to Settings > Network > VPN > ON, nothing happens.
    Any advice on what to do?
