Thread: ipad 1 help!

Gentleman, I have a conundrum.
My dad bought an ipad 1 with 5.1.1 on craigslist and wanted to jailbreak it with the latest version of absinthe, however, when I try to jailbreak it even after a fresh restore as new, when it gets to the part where the apple logo is up and the progress bar comes up, it gets approx 70% done then stops and goes back to the slide to unlock screen.
Absinte at this point still reads "waiting for process to complete..." for about 2-3 minutes then finally, I get the following message
"Recovery completed. If you want to retry jailbreaking, unplug your device and plug it back in."
I've done this 4 times now, and never get cydia installed.
The only thing I can think of is that my dad put password restrictions on in settings but not in the lock screen, could that be the issue?
I tired redsn0w as well, and it fails to jailbreak as well.Don't forget to say THANKS!
