    Here is my update. It Barely works on Absinthe, when i say barely when i search on Cydia i get a listing, go inside of it, and it doesn’t load. but if i hit install and install it, it loads just fine after wards. So if for example i’m looking for themes, i cannot preview them because the screen doesn’t load up. :(
    i also tried Snowbreeze, but it didn’t do anything, it installed cydia but it never opened click and crash…

    lets hope Redsn0w saves the day!

    Clearly, this jailbreak version has a lot of bugs. If you guys can wait a little while longer (as i am trying to do), all of this issues will eventually be addressed by the great minds of the jailbreak team. All i can do now is to wait and morally support the team.

    any1 know if i can restore my 4s through itunes after i’ve jailbroke it with Absinthe?

  • http://www.facebook.com/adam.lally Adam Lally

    restored clean through itunes and then ran the jailbreak on a pc as administrator, the pc i used had never been used with mu ipad so no traces, worked fine, cydia installed and working correctly.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Reece-Morehu/797969781 Reece Morehu

    Hi all, For those with using iphone 4 build 9B208, i found it is not supported. To fix you need to download IPhone 4 5.1.1 (not the B208) found in the download section and do a shift restore (on PC) or alt restore (on mac) and choose the build that you just downloaded.

    Once Restored then runAbsinthe and it should work just fine. Took me a few hours to work out, but it works good.

    If you want me to post a you tube vid, let me know.

    IT’S WORKING!

    • First time – didn’t work
    • Read these post and did as instructed:
    – Restore as new using iTunes
    – Did not sync – even as new (closed iTunes)
    • Ran Absinthe again
    • Worked!

    I’m going to donate my money! (Why don’t more apps have trials? – I need to try an app before I purchase it.)

    Absinthe 2.0.2 that supports IPhone 4, 5.1.1, 9B208 has just come out.

  • Adrienne Batman

    i jailbroke my ipad2 on 5.1.1 cydia wont work porperly dont know why =(

    my ipad 2 was on 5.0.1 (jailbroken)
    i just connected my ipd2 and i hit the button on upadate ..the upadate was done on 5.1.1 and then i jailbreak it agn on absint 2.0.2 .. it did well but
    now cydia says NOTE; the requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicits that cannot be automatically fixed or found
    this pops up when i try to intstall anything frm cydia

  • Anonymous

    Worked perfectly for me. Thanks pod2g! (Time to make a donation again!)
    iP4S
    Did TinyUmbrella update -made sure SHSH saved.
    Downloaded Absinthe 2.0.2 to desktop.
    Copied all photos to iPhoto – deleted from phone.
    Open iTunes-did transfer of apps, then backup.
    Did Restore (not from backup), updated phone to 5.1.1.
    Once restored to 511, did NOT go further in iTunes. Ejected iPhone from iTunes (not from laptop), then closed iTunes.
    Ran Absinthe.
    When done, reopened iTunes, restored from last backup.
    I have a ton of apps, and without Infinifolders on phone, many apps can not show on limited number of pages. This corrects itself once Infini is reinstalled from Cydia.
    Now I’m just adding JB apps/tweaks….but it’s great.
    I have noticed the respring seems to be a ton faster.
    I have NOT reinstalled winterboard – Not sure I will –
    But things are great so far!
    (Just posted my steps in case it helps anyone with questions. But I got all these tips from previous posters on here. I ALWAYS read first….JB later. ;)

    I just jailbroke and got Cydia. You have to tap “Changes” at the bottom of Cydia as soon as you open it then tap “Refresh” button at top left so you get all the apps and themes. I also found an interesting app on Cydia called “bigU Movies” and it’s pretty badass app. I downloaded the movies “Men in Black 3″ and “The Avengers” already.

    I seemed to have a problem with mine on OS5.1.1, its an i phone4, Booted fine after the jailbreak, followed instructions etc.
    As soon as I started the Cydia App, it loaded files, worked fine, I turnedf the iphone off, and back on…. all my apps had gone, only left with news stand and a youtube app, nothing else worked, any ideas??

    • Nora Thorburn

      Same thing here on an ipad 1.

      • Nora Thorburn

        All the files for all my apps are on the ipad in the User folder, just no icons and when I try to sync with itunes to get the apps back, the files already there are not erased, it just adds new ones. iTunes is not recognizing these files as apps. AppInfo sees all the apps and if I redownload the app, a second folder for the app appears as does a second entry on AppInfo. Also the iTunes sees the space as Other.

      • Nora Thorburn

        Fixed it sort of. Re-synced the apps. I noticed that it added everything. Where I started with 5 pages of apps, ended up with 9. I used AppInfo to find all the apps with null info. – Under the lower tab AppStore, you’ll see all your apps and some will show two copies. Click on the lower one and you should see in the second box – null – as the entry behind all the categories. Scroll further down and follow the iFile link. Clearly you need iFile from Cydia. Go up to the folder level, select the folder and send it to the trash. Do this with all your doubles that have null entries under Name:, Author: Copyright etc. Empty the trash bin in iFiles and respring. Apps back with all their info, junk files gone, free space restored. Clumsy and time consuming maybe, but it works.

  • Nathaniel Reichert

    THIS WILL HELP IF YOU HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IPHONE 4 OR 4S.
    1. After extracting Absinthe, right click on the application, then click properties, then compatibility.
    2. Next, select run in compatibility mode and MAKE SURE YOU CLICK WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2.
    3. Then press okay, and apply.
    4. Remove password (If you have it) on iPhone and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR and that will fix any errors, it took me a while to figure it out but after I did that it worked.

    How to download jailbreak applications from PC and sync with iPhone:
    I saw Cydia requires a Wi-Fi or Cellular Data network.
    How can you download jailbreak applications from computer (not from iPhone itself),
    similar to using iTunes (from my PC) and sync with iPhone.
    Can I do the same now after jailbreaking.

    Is anyone having problems with their iPod/music app on you iPhone after the jailbreak and if so do you know a fix for it.  I have an iPhone 4 GSM and after I jail broke when I play a song the art work and everything for that song comes up but it plays a completely different song.  I did a complete restore and jail broke it again and got the same result.

    iPhone 3gs; 5.1.1. Windows 7. I’ve downloaded Absinthe 2.0.4.
    It stops working everytime.I can see files extracting via a dos window but everytime I run jailbreak it stops working. While trying to jailbreak in prior days I was getting Jailbreak Error “could not connect to lockdownd”. I began researching the error code and learned that I needed a Restrictions Code which I’ve never setup on this phone in order to Erase all Content & Settings. This began because I switched carriers to Consumer Cellular a few days ago and am trying to jailbreak so that I can get the MMS working again. That’s what I understand I need to do. Any suggestions? I would be grateful.

  • jennat

    YEP! I agree!
    Brand new iPad (third gen) did jailbreak and now it won’t even let me restore through iTunes (normal or thru DFU mode), not even using Tiny Umbrella’s TSS Server to bypass shsh, nor through RedSn0w using a custom IPSW.

    I think Apple knows youre jailbroken. Think I’m going to dfu it to the usb screen (connect to itunes screen) and take it back to Best Buy for an exchange. Screw the jailbreak.

    • jennat

      Update: I was able to restore it. My issue was I was getting error “wrong build for your restore”. So I restored my DNS cache (google it) and I put a # sign in front of the 74.129 something line in the etc/private hosts file.
      Reset your host file (google it) and ur good. I just won’t do the jailbreak. This is only to let you know HOW to restore it after a FAILED JAILBREAK or a glitchy jailbreak period. Good luck.
