I was having the same problem (also running OSX 10.6.8) and rebooting it in safe mode did the trick. Jailbreaking now. It looks like many people with 10.6.8 had this issue, so thanks for finding and sharing the solution.
Also (and I'm not sure if this is of any consequence), since wifi is disabled in safe mode I connected the mac to my modem via ethernet in case an internet connection is needed during the jailbreak.

Has anyone else been having issues as far as the device "bricking" after jailbroken? I dealt with many of the problems everyone here dealt with but finally got the jailbreak to work and Cydia installed. Once I was done installing all of my much-missed applications, one of them required a reboot. I rebooted and all that happens is a long Apple logo screen followed by the spinning circle, which then freezes and my phone is gone. I restored once and it fixed the issue. Well, the same thing just happened. Any advice?

some people are really so f@#%#@. they donate before seeing anything. just like the windows users waited eagerly for the windows version seeing yesterday the devs after too many months (ok i really understand that the j/b is really hard i respect the devs for all their work) releasing the j/b. Come on guys it is just not fair. All of us waited months and after that you say only mac users can be happy. Then we waited one day and voila the devs shi@$$@# on us again. Having to use CMD commands which do not even work!!! No one is getting any penny until i see a real j/b. I know many of you respectful people in here will disagree with me but people that is the truth i know it hurts...

Settings icon is white after jailbreak.....
I have installed "Twelve" theme from ThemeIt & everything was running great. I then noticed that my Settings icon & only that icon have turned white. I've respringed a bunch of times, switched back and forth between themes, but the Settings icon is still white. Has anyone else experienced this problem & if so can you please post a fix. Thank you very much.

I just fixed itself. I was downloading Lockscreen clock hide & the icon came back. I suggest going into SBSettings & hide the settings icon then respring. After that go back into SB and turn back on the settings icon back on and respring.

mine was failing non-stop (terminal indicates it was failing - the app does not) until I free'd up about 6gb of data total

I can get to the part where the Absinthe web app is installed, and I click it and get a white screen and thats it. It does not reboot, no database error connection, turning on VPN does not get it to restart. I've erased all data and settings and restored with could, but still have the same issue. 2-3 times yesterday it said "Could not establish a connection to the server" but that's it, and right now it just stays stuck on a white screen. Using OSX 10.7.2 and an iPad 2 on 5.0.1. Any suggestions?
Ok after it wasn't doing anything, I quit Absinthe on the iPad, tried it again, still didn't work, turned VPN on, and it finally worked. I've tried that countless times but for some reason it finally worked haha
