    Wink Got it, first try!
    Using 4S/5.01/OSX Lion 10.7.2/iTunes 10.5
    Very few small problems/warnings (a> thru d>)

    Backed up phone
    Downloaded Absinthe
    Did NOT erase phone
    Ran Absinthe
    a>got "Your Backup is encrypted" message
    Unencrypted phone via iTunes (auto-backup again)
    Ran Absinthe
    Waited as progress bar moved, until prompt said ~"Find the jailbreak icon on your phone" (would have been clearer if it said "Absinthe" icon)
    Tapped Absinthe icon
    b>Waited at white safari screen, watching activity indicator (circle turning, ie data downloading)
    c>got ~"Server not responding" message
    repeated b> and c> bout 5 times, closing Absinthe mobile app and trying again
    Got scared, felt helpless
    Logged onto modmyi and saw the "VPN" messages
    Opened settings, toggled VPN on
    d> got "VPN connection failed" message
    tried toggle again a few times
    mid-try, the device just restarted itself (maybe was supposed to wait a few seconds after first VPN try?)
    After device reboot, "Absinthe" icon was replaced by Cydia
    Jailbroken!

    Already donated. Thanks for you hard work. To those having trouble, be patient and keep trying.

    For anyone having problems with absinthe not recognizing your device...I had the same problem! Tried multiple restarts of the computer (osx 10.6.8) and multiple device reboots (4s iOS 5.0.1 9a405). Finally booted my MacBook in safe mode and it worked smooth as silk!

    Guys I need some help. I dl absinthe zip, double click on it and it asks if I want to open application, I click open but I get ''application quit unexpectedly''. It gives me options to ignore, report to apple, or relaunch. Relaunch just pops the same window back up. I tried deleting and re downloading several times, same thing.
    Any ideas?????

    So you've been at the beginning of the jailbreak for a while and progress bar hasn't moved in the last 10 mins. Well, here's an easy fix. Close Absinthe and slide to unlock your phone and go through all "setup options" until you get to the home screen of your iPhone (do not backup yet, just continue without backing up for now). Go to Settings and "Erase All Data Settings". Now close iTunes on your computer when the device reboots and do not backup yet. Now slide to unlock your phone again and go through all the options until you get "Activating Phone" screen comes up. Wait for your phone to active (may take a couple minutes), then STOP. Don't click anything more on your iOS device.

    Now open Absinthe and click "Jailbreak". It shouldn't take more then a couple minutes to jailbreak. Once it's complete and it tells you to "slide to unlock your device", continue through all the remaining setup options till you get your home screen once again. Scroll to the second page and click the "Absinthe" app (technically a web app, but for all you noobs I'll call it an app so you understand). You're almost guaranteed to get the "Error establishing a database connection" issue. So after that shows up, go to your Settings and swipe the VPN to ON and wait for the error to come up. Now wait. Your device should reboot and voila!

    Done :-)

    same EXACT thing happened to me. i tried everything to get the service back to working and it wouldnt. The only thing that worked was to fully restore the iPhone which kinda sucked. No one is answering my question so im not sure what we can do =/ im also verizon

    I'm afraid I'll have to do the same thing which really isn't that big of a deal, but still, I've never had issues with SBSettings before and now I'm an unhappy camper.

    Oki, same here. I have a macbook 10.7.2 runs 64bit.

    Same problem, absinthe closed unexpectedly. tried rebooting many times, but no use.

    My version is 5.0.1(9a405) then after restoring and trying again changed to (9a406). I have tried in both versions but same problem. plz can anyone tell me should i downgrade? if yes. Why? i had the same issue before. "closed unexpectedly"

    Thanks all.

    Quite surprised I cannot figure this out on my own. I thought my itunes backed up my iphone (which it didn't). Here I sit with a freshly jailbroken stock 4S on 5.0.1 (since my backup failed to restore my previous settings); however, Cydia will not open for me. It will open up for 2 seconds and close. Next attempt it will open 1 second and close. After that, it'll just literally close automatically. I'm doing another Clear All Settings and Data and reattempting another Absinthe JB. Will update soon.

    update! MMi users: update your iTunes to the latest version if you're having the Cydia opening/closing problem. Doubt that it is actually the technical solution, but it worked for me. Excited to get things rolling here

    STEP 1: Download and extract libcurl.4.dylib 6.0.0.zip http://cmdshft.ipwn.me/other/f... to your Desktop

    STEP 2: Launch Terminal.app (Located in /Applications/Utilities/) and execute the following commands:

    STEP 3: First we'll backup libcurl4 by renaming it

    sudo mv /usr/lib/libcurl.4.dylib /usr/lib/libcurl.4.dylib-backup

    STEP 4: Now you’ll move the newly downloaded libcurl file from your Mac OS X Desktop to /usr/lib

    sudo mv ~/Desktop/libcurl.4.dylib /usr/lib/

    STEP 5: Launch Absinthe and it should work fine!

    Let us know if it works..
    Unfortunately not. Cheers anyway though mate.
